2 months down, a lifetime to go

it is just downright crazy to me that Dane and I have already been married for two months. it seems like yesterday I was walking down the aisle, all while it seems like we've been married forever. is that a thing?!

I am the luckiest girl in the world to be on this adventure of life with you. you're the craftsman to my HGTV obsession, mozzarella to my basil & balsamic and the best darn breakfast-in-bed-maker that a girl could ever want. I can't imagine doing this thing without you by my side. cheers to two months and many, many more.

ya know what is really annoying...?

today I'm linking up with Helene and Taylor for my first ever blog every day in October challenge. better late than never, right?
Helene in Between Blogtober

today's prompt for the blogtober challenge is pet peeves. ironically, I had no idea what the prompt was today, but so many things have become annoying to me recently it just kind of fits perfectly, so let's get started!

1. if I can hear you chewing, you're doing it wrong. cereal, chips, pretzels (really anything that makes a loud crunch) -- I won't even be able to sit in the same room as you. ask Dane how I really feel about this...

2. movie theater etiquette. If you missed Monday's post, check it out.

3. the lady across the street who screams into her cell phone, at her husband and kids and to anyone who will listen at all hours of the day. she's also younger than me with 5 children and asks me at least once per week if I have a husband.

4. saying you will do something and then not doing it. if you're unable, why not just say "hey, that's not going to work for me. sorry about that!" ?!?!?!

5. wind blowing my hair into fresh lipgloss. yes, it's vain, but have you seen the price of lipgloss recently?

6. people who try too hard and/or act like they're better than you... for no apparent reason.

7. going to the gym each and every day. yep, I said it. I despise getting up, moving from my comfy house and working out. I love how it makes me feel, but actually going? GTFO.

8. losing followers on social media channels--again, vain. I don't care.

and while there are plenty more, I think that should do it for today!

what are your pet peeves?

zucchini fritters [recipe]

There are few things I like more than a quick and easy meal addition that is not just gluten free, but a healthy alternative.

This recipe for zucchini fritters has been modified from a recipe originally posted by Alissa at Diary of an Addict. When she posted it on her Instagram feed one day, it happened to be perfect timing thanks to an abundance of zucchinis from a crop share. You won't want to miss this one, I promise!
(p.s. her photos are a lot nicer than mine are! be sure to check them out if photography is what you're looking for ;))

You Will Need:
1 zucchini, grated
3 eggs
4 garlic cloves, crushed
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup almond milk
3 green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 cup gluten free flour (Cup4Cup is my go to!)
olive oil

1. Mix the shredded zucchini, onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, baking power & butter together.
2. Slowly add in your eggs and almond milk. Mix well.
**I highly recommend a hand mixer.
3. Add the flour to your ingredients, continuing to mix with the hand mixer.
4. Heat olive oil in a skillet.
**I used about 3 tablespoons total.
5. Once you see the oil begin to heat up, use a tablespoon to scoop circles of mixture into the hot oil.
6. When you begin to see them brown on the bottom, flip them over and cook the other side.
7. Once cooked, take them out of the oil and place on a paper towel to soak up excess oil.
8. Serve hot and enjoy!

* In this photo, you'll see chicken topped with Boursin cheese and wrapped in prosciutto -- the combo tasted great together!
