Crazy week

This has been a crazy week. We decided to start looking for houses on Monday and have already been to see several this week. It's fun being on the hunt again. We've also been preparing for our visitors this week. Tomorrow, Nathan's cousins Eric and Shwa, and our awesome friends the Merritts are coming in. The guys are going backpacking on the Pacific Crest Trail from Snoqualmie Pass to Steven's Pass. The most difficult part for me has been preparing the food, but it's been fun. It has been a challenge to find food that will last for 8 days and is light in weight since they'll be carrying it. MREs make Nathan sick, so I've had to be resourceful. I made jerky for the first time, which has been fun experimenting. I came up with my own super secret marinade...I may share it if you're lucky! :-) I also had to make salmon jerky at the last minute...we'll see if it comes out. It's in the oven now.

I better get to bed...I still have some cleaning to do in the morning. YIKES. Just like me...waiting until the last always!

What a gal! Nathan is truly blessed to have you as his wife. You are taking care of him very well it seems. Jerky??? Homemade??? You are quite a woman, my sweet precious daughter!

Love you,
