Jake and I have been together for 3 years!! I cannot believe how fast the time has flown or how much I depend on him. It’s pretty crazy how we met.
My family moved in 2010 to a neighboring city. I decided to get a summer job to take my mind off of it and have some spending money. I picked a part-time tanning consultant position in the new town. One couple came in every night to tan, and we’d talk. They actually were the ones that set us up! I almost said no because it was so out of my comfort zone, but I jumped in. To this day, it was still the best choice I have ever made.
Our first date was so exciting but also so calm. We just hit it off. After dinner and seeing a show we got stuck in traffic. I still joke that he took me home that way on purpose so we could keep talking.
I can’t believe 3 years later, I get to marry him.
Now to 30 Minute Meals or Less for WIAW
While I absolutely love my new, dream job, I am still putting cooking as a low priority. I mean with challenges, the year-round accountability group, and blogging I just don’t feel like Rachel Ray like I thought I would.
So here are some meal ideas no matter what your job and priorities are!
