Happy Birthday Christina!

I have been friends with Christina for over 13 years now! :) We met in 7th grade! She has been by my side for as long as I can remember. I am so thankful for her friendship! No matter where we live or how long we go without seeing each other everything always stays the same. Christina brings out the fight in me more than anyone else in my life :) We have had our ups and downs, but I would not change that for anything! I love that we fight, forgive, and the next day forget it ever happened :) Thank you for fighting with me, crying with me, and laughing with me always! I don't know what I would do without you! Miss you lots! I hope your birthday is AMAZING!!!
Also, I am pretty sure I have more pictures with Christina than anyone else :) haha We definitely went through our obsessive picture taking stage together!

My Brothers

I have two brothers, one is older and one is younger. One lives in Michigan and one lives in Colorado. Our family has been through a lot, life is not perfect, there is a lot of pain. But no matter how deep the pain or how tough life gets I am so incredibly thankful for my brothers. I would not trade them for anything and I just want them to know that. I don't tell them nearly enough how much I love them. So today I just wanted to let them know, I am so thankful for you both and I miss you like crazy!

Tortilla Soup Recipe

This is a soup that my mother-in-law used to make for us all the time. It was fun to make something from home :) Its super easy and super delicious!! 

What you need:
2T butter or olive oil
1 large garlic clove minced (I used way more than this)
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded or cubed
1 32 oz. container of Chicken Stock or broth
2-14 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1-2 T fresh lime juice ( I use 2 whole limes, we love lime juice!)
1 c. Salsa
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1 T ground cumin (I didnt use quite this much) 

Monterrey Jack or Pepper Jack Cheese to sprinkle on top when served 
Tortilla chips 

Saute chicken and minced garlic in oil or butter in large pot
When chicken is cooked take out and shred or cube
Put chicken back in pot with all remaining ingredients and simmer about 20-30 min   

Add cheese when served and we usually put in more lime juice and either crush chips on top or use chips as a spoon!
Enjoy! :)
