I think my husband is wonderful and apparently so does everybody else!

This is a straight up husband brag post, I'll just tell you that right here and now. I just have to share how fantastic this was!

My husband works in higher education. He got his master's degree in college student development with a focus in outdoor programs administration. He loves working with undergraduates and helping them find their way in the world and navigate their newfound identity as mini-adults.

Well apparently they love working with him too! His student staff declared Tuesday "Lee Appreciation Day!"



They brought him a variety of delicious beer, grilled him burgers for lunch, had an ice cream cake, played his favorite music all day, AND they even washed his car!

How sweet is that!?! I knew they liked him, but I'm so glad they went out of their way to show their appreciation for how hard he works for them.

It makes me a little jealous that I don't get to hang out with fun college kids all day every day!


Oh, and here's a picture of one of Julia's cats helping me unpack groceries. Just because.


The end.

The Perfect Soft Boiled Egg

We have been obsessed with soft boiled eggs lately. Every weekend we end up having soft boiled eggs on something for breakfast.


My foolproof method that always works perfectly:
1. Fill small pot with 1/4 inch water.
2. Insert eggs.
3. Bring to a boil.
4. As soon as it boils, turn heat down to low, cover, and set timer for 6 1/2 minutes.
5. When timer goes off, immediately put eggs in cold water bath.
6. Peel. {Careful, it can be tricky!}

It's the steam that makes the magic happen, so cover with an airtight lid and don't touch it until that timer dings.

Eat on some sort of bread product with cheese, tomato, avocados, salt, pepper, and whatever else sounds delicious at the moment!

5 Ingredient Fish Tacos

First of all, 100% of the credit for this deliciousness goes to Samm at Dysfunctional Ever After. I saw it on her blog and immediately knew it was a winner. This recipe is crazy easy and super duper yummy.


Mr. Husband is a huge fan of fish tacos, and this is the easiest recipe ever. Perfect for lazy weeknights when I want to feel like I've accomplished a homemade meal while putting in as little effort as possible.

5 Ingredient Fish Tacos
fish sticks {I used Gordon's tilapia fish sticks.}
corn tortillas
shredded cabbage {I used a bagged coleslaw mixture.}
red onions, diced
tartar sauce

Cook the fish sticks however the box tells you to. When they have one minute left in the oven, put your tortillas on the other rack so they get warm and soft {DO NOT omit this step or your meal will be at least 50% less satisfying}.
Combine all ingredients into delicious taco magic. Be sure to use plenty of tartar sauce so they aren't dry.

I would advise you to go read Samm's instructions as well, much more amusing then mine.

Happy birthday to our ginormous puppy!

Sir Poindexter turns one today! We are so incredibly lucky, he is the bestest gigantic doggy in the world. Rescue the homeless creatures, people; they are worth it.


We celebrated with a long walk around the neighborhood in the beautiful sunshine {Thursday o'clock celebratory cocktails in hand... obviously}.
