Chocolate Souffles

Well, though I am a day late, I'd like to say Happy Valentine's Day to all of my lovely little bloggers. I hope you're day was filled with a little love and a lot of sugar. My husband bravely conquered the kitchen last night, only asking about one billion questions along the way. It was adorable, I'm not going to lie. Now, I've seen some more than adorable home-made aprons on Etsy that I really want because all great chefs should have an adorable apron, right? Right. Now, if only I had one of those and could have made my husband wear it while cooking last night...

Anyways, I've won two awards from two of my followers, whom I'd like to thank. Miss Maloree whose blog you can find here. Also, Miss Carissa, whose blog can be found here.

The award does come with a few rules, so here they are:

- Thank the person who gave you the award!
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Pass the award on to 10 other versatile bloggers.
- Let those other bloggers know that you gave them the award.

Seven little things I know you'd love to know:
One. I'm funny. Well, you might not think I'm funny, but I think I'm hilarious which is all that really matters, right? If you can make yourself laugh... or you can laugh at yourself, you've got a great quality within. I have found that laughter is truly my cure for sadness and can turn almost any day, even if only for a moment into a better one. And hey, even my husband will admit I'm funny, after he's had a drink or two.

Two. Though I sometimes curse the Army, hate being the only person at the gym in civilian clothes, and could stomp my feet and throw a child-like temper tantrum every time I have to go to the PX... this experience, this life, has shown me a world totally out of most's element. It has changed me as a person, matured me into an adult, and really shown me there's more to this world than Omaha, NE.

Three. I'm a 'stage-5 clinger'. That's right, I'm admitting it. My husband always like to make fun of me when he comes and hugs me because he has to pry me off sometimes in order to walk out of the room. I normally only do it while we're being goofy but the other day he had to crawl down the hall way with me latched around his neck...ah, the memories.

Four. I'm a home-maker. I like a house that's homey, I want everyone fed a good meal, and I want a clean space to live in. I love helping people pick out paint colors for their homes, furniture, and decor. Despite my age, crafts and DIY projects on the weekends sound much more entertaining to me than frat parties and kegs.

Five. I would not be the person I am today without my mother. End of story.

Six. I would not be the little chef I am today without my father, because no offense, but I sure didn't get this from my mom!

Seven. I spoil my husband absolutely rotten, and that's the truth.

I don't know if I follow a full 10 blogs, I'm not the greatest at following blogs I have to admit, but here are the one's I do:
Carissa found at Domiciliary Artillery
Maloree found at A Day in My Life
Amber found at 4 Guys 4 Me
Noel found at Issued to a Soldier
Laurie found at Cows and Combat Boots
Natalie found at Life as a Dreamer
Michelle found at The Musings of Me
Dayle found at The Science of Home

I know that's not ten, but my husband is pushing me out of the door to go tanning and go to the gym. He's home for a few hours and I'm able to take the car during the day, so I'll probably have to finish up the award rules later.

As for the souffles I followed this recipe.


  1. Is it too early in the morning for me to be totally drooling over these? And btw, I totally want an etsy apron too. There are so many cute ones!

  2. Carissa aren't you pretty good with a sewing machine? You could probably make yourself an awesome one!

  3. Congratulations on your awards! Your souffles turned out so nicely. I have yet to try making souffles myself. I hope you'll come back and join me for Sweets for a Saturday #5.

  4. Oh, yummy!! I made souffles this week, too...I need to get mine to have a bit more chocolate punch. Fun to see your recipe :)

  5. I made souffles too! I made nutella souffles for valentines day! Your recipe looks good too!

  6. Hey you! 1. You're making me fat(ter). 2. You have a bloggy award waiting for you at my spot.
