Making an Impression
Chad's Lady Friend (aka Girl Friend) Bonnie has left a lasting impression on EVERYONE she has met recently. Every friend who has called to talk about our wedding has said how much they enjoyed getting to know Bonnie. I too have to agree with them. She has become somewhat of a sister to me in just a short amount of time. She makes Chad happy...which makes me happy.
Another reason that Bonnie fits right in with us "Treado's/now Simms' " is that the girl CAN COOK! The first time Brian and I went to eat dinner at her place, she made something I had never had before... Taco Soup. Those who know me...know that I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD! Brian says I'm not allowed to have chips and guacamole for a month since I ate it every day on our honeymoon! I seriously could eat Mexican everyday and be happy!
Today's blog is in honor of Bonnie.... because if there was a dish that she could have created that was to impress me....it was her Taco Soup! ...so... Thanks Bonnie for sharing...and I hope you will make up a batch and think of us...and Bonnie...who is so special.
