Happy half birthday Hunter!

My little guy is 6 months old! It is crazy to think how much our lives have changed in the last six months but it has been so awesome! We go to the doctor for his check up tomorrow so I don't have any stats but will update when I do. So until then here are some pictures and a little on what he is doing these days.

-eating solid food

-loves bath time still and especially now that he is in his own bath tub

-sitting up on his own
-"talking" a lot

-being ornery and getting into everything
-crawling about 2-3 crawls at a time and then falling
-on hands and feet a lot, not really on his knees when trying to move
-laughing all the time

-trying to crawl off the changing table while naked almost every single time!
-being the best little Aggie/wildcat ever

Hunter, I have loved every last minute with you over the past 6 months. I can' t wait to see how you change and grow and learn over the next month. You are my best and favorite gift from God. I love you more and more everyday!

My Inner Foodie

Oh goodness, I have been channeling my inner Martha Stewart, or maybe some other awesome housewife. HAHA, but seriously I have been trying to get our house more organized, I have been learning to crochet, I want to pick up sewing AND I have started to cook.  Matt is usually the cook in the family but I have started to really enjoy the process.  SOOOO  last night I thought I would pick a recipe from the Ol' Pinterest board and give it a go.  Let me tell ya, it was A-MA-ZING...ok so not quite that dramatic but it was really good. It was even Matt approved.  So without further a due here it is:

Honey-Lime Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Corn Tacos 
(credit goes to Cooking Classy were you can also find the recipe)
 Dry Ingredients

 Chopped Onions and Sweet Potatoes

 A few finishing touches

Final Product!  

We topped ours with salsa, avocado, and feta cheese.  They were delicious and healthy!  A great combination for me.  I am loving trying these new recipes and becoming a better cook!  The prep work took the longest but it still was very easy.  I think next time I might heat the tortillas a different way instead of in the microwave.  This will definitely be a new meal in the Schafer house.  Y'all should give it a try!

Red Red Red Neck

Yes, Natalie that title is for you :)

So I have A LOT to catch up on these days but I will start with a fun night out with one of my favorite guys!  Matt gave me an AWESOME birthday gift back in April and that was tickets to Blake Shelton.  If anyone knows me they know I am country through and through.  I have listened to country music my whole life and pretty much only listened to that.  Blake Shelton has been a favorite of mine even back in the mullet days!  I am not sure what it is about him but I just love him.  His voice can be so soothing and his songs can touch my heart like no other (besides the King which I get to see in January!!!!)

So even though I have a MAJOR crush on him Matt still got us tickets.  It was such a great night just to relax, have some fun and spend some quality time with my main squeeze.  Hunter spent the evening with his Grandma and Grandpa which they of course loved so we knew he would be in good hands. 

Because the concert was on a Thursday night and we both had to work that day we were not able to get a good dinner before the concert so drive thru it was!  Jana Kramer and Easton Corbin were the openers.

I was a One Tree Hill fan so I love Jana Kramer as she played Alex the last few seasons on that show.  Problem was when we go to the Sprint Center the line was SO long to get in that we barely got inside by 7:30 when the show started.  We missed Jana completly because we were also on a hunt for some adult beverages.  The first few places we stopped at only had Coors Light (Travis Riley would have loved it) so we kept looking but never found anything else so we settled.  We got to our seats in time for Easton Corbin.  He was great but I was ready to see Blake!

Blake put on such a great show.  He is so funny and engages the audience the whole time.  He does talk about drinking A LOT but other than that he was awesome to see.  He did some old school stuff and even put on a mullet wig.  This girl was in heaven!

Thank you Matt for a great night out.  I love you for your willingness to feed my crush :)

Some upcoming changes to the ol blog

Hello Everyone!

I am not really sure who all reads my blog but there have been some things come up recently that has led me to make some changes to my blog.  I am going to make my blog private and only open to readers that have requested access.  I am doing this to simply limit people that I do not want to know about what is going on with my family to be able to see it.  I know this might be harsh but I am doing what I feel is right at this time.  If you would still like to read updates on the Schafer's just send me your email address and I will be able to add you to the list.  I will probably make this change in the next 2 weeks!

Thank you for understanding and please either comment below with your email address or send it to me at
