Stuffed Bell Peppers

I wish I had a picture of these but I honestly didn't think they would be as good as they were so I didn't take one!

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Bell Peppers
Smoked Sausage
Rice cooked in Chicken broth
Bread crumbs (we made our own from bread we baked and then ground ourselves)

Saute the onion, tops of bell peppers, garlic and smoked sausage in butter until soft. Add in the desired amount of rice. Mix well. Put into bell peppers and top with bread crumbs. Put a small amount of Olive oil over the top and rub some onto the sides of the peppers. Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

Life Lately...

I haven't been blogging because I haven't really had much to blog about, honestly. Life is just the day to day which has been enjoyable for us. We are preparing for Matt's family to visit in two weeks and then to take pictures of the Moody's new baby, Lela.

Lela arrived on February 23rd and she is a CUTIE! Our friends Dustin and Katie are also getting ready to have a baby next week. So is another high school friend, Katie. There are BABIES everywhere.

Last night, Matt and I went to dinner (the food wasn't good but that's beside the point) and we discussed various things related to the new photography venture. He has prepared a price list and he is hoping to get to shoot some senior portraits. We realize this could take time so we are just preparing as we can and believing God to send the business when he sees fit. :)

We are excited about all of the fun things coming up for us over the next 2 months. I'll be sure to update :)

My Man

My precious husband is awesome. Seriously. AWESOME!

Right now, he is in the process of starting his own photography business while working nearly 40 hours a week. He is working hard to make his dream/vision come to pass so that he can support our family. He is an awesome photographer and I can't wait for more people to know!

Here is his website (temporarily):
Here is the link to his Facebook page:

He is taking some photographs of his family when they visit us during the second weekend in March and then he is doing a newborn photo shoot for one of our dearest friends on March 12th. Can't wait to see how they turn out. We have been planning together, buying new photography gear as able, and photography props etc. I'll make sure to link to his page when he posts the edited photographs next month!

Also, next month on March 26th is my man's 26th birthday---His Golden Birthday!!! I'm super excited because it's a special birthday and you already know I love birthdays!!!

We went back and forth about where we would spend his birthday. We considered Pigeon Forge, then camping locally and then decided to go spend a weekend in Columbia, SC. We will have a quick overnight trip but we have some plans for a couple of good restaurants and just some other fun things when we get there. It will be nice to spend that weekend together exploring a new place!

I can't wait to tell you about all of our adventures :)

Morgan Family Motto

This week Matt and I were discussing various things and our "life motto" came up. At this season in our lives and possibly forever we decided it was this:

"Do what you say you will do"

No exception to this. We are noticing this is so limited in our society. People just don't have accountability anymore and don't feel the need to do what they say they will do. We are hoping to hold to this truth for our entire lives.

What's been happening!

Just realized it has been a while since I blogged about anything. Life has been busy but not a stressful kind of busy, a good kind of busy...

Busy working,
busy enjoying time together,
busy watching our free month of Netflix,
busy crafting,
busy starting a photography business,
busy day dreaming about our Brazilian Steak House date tomorrow night,
busy planning for family to visit next month,
busy budgeting,
busy paying off student loans,
busy lounging,
busy snuggling,
busy cooking and eating,
busy finding a new church,
busy spending time with Matt's grandparents,
busy dreaming about the future,
busy crossing things off of our 101 list,
busy talking to old friends and catching up with those we care about,
busy loving our lives...

So see, we are busy but we aren't upset about this busyness. In fact, we are grateful for this season!

Ecclesiastes 4:6- “Better one handful with tranquillity than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.”

Things a Photographer shouldn't say...

Last weekend, Matt and I attended a Newcomer's class at the church we have been attending here (Restoration Church). One of the pastors asked Matt to take pictures after the class of each of the people that attended so that the staff would have a face to go with each name. Matt was excited to do it and he really enjoyed it. When he was finishing up, we started talking about and laughing hysterically about the topic "Things A photographer should not say". Here are a few of the ones we came up with. Hope it makes you laugh too!

1. That was good but could you smile next time?

2. Uhhh...could you show me your good side?

3. That Go ahead and take off the mask for the next shot.

4.  Do you always make that face?

5. Oh no, we will need to reschedule. You just broke my camera.

6. Don't worry, I can use photoshop to make you look better.

7. Your children must get their good looks from your spouse.

8. Your little boy is so precious....oh, it's a girl? My bad.

Hope these made you laugh or at least smile :)

SUYL "Singles"

One of my favorite blogs to follow is "Kelly's Korner". Each week, she does a Show Us Your Life link up where she allows you to link up to her blog along with others to display or show various things. In the past has been Military moms, People without children, What you are Making/Selling etc. Every few months, she does a link up for "Show Us Your Life Singles" It's so inspiring and a blessing to so many people. Many people have met, been on dates, been engaged and some are even married now. It's just a great thing.

Well, I decided that I wanted to participate this time! I'm not single but I have plenty of wonderful friends and some of them are single. Today, I wanted to share about my friend, Brian.

Brian, a 30-something, male is a resident of Birmingham, Alabama. He is one of 3 brothers and an incredible guy who LOVES his family. I met Brian 3+ years ago at a Young Professionals Small Group with Church of the Highlands. We immediately became friends and despite 2 moves and a marriage for me and many life changes for him, we have remained close friends.

Brian works for a company called PrintsWell, Inc in Birmingham and is a jack of all trades there. Brian loves to decorate, remodel/renovate houses (others and his own). He sings incredibly (sang at my wedding) and sings each Sunday at Church of the Highlands. He is funny and knows how to have a good time.

Over the years, Brian and I have spent time praying for the Lord to send him an incredible wife to compliment him. I am anxious to see the Lord fulfill that. Because I know that Brian will make an awesome husband for some lady out there. Maybe it is one of you reading today. Feel free to contact me via this post or e-mail Brian directly @ Can't wait to see what happens!

Look at those pearly whites!

Goofing off (that's me)

Always the life of the party!
