Homemade Chicken Soup for the Soul

Yesterday (Aug 30th) was our 4 year dating anniversary (awww).  Since we're married now, that anniversary is still important obviously, but has taken a backseat to our new wedding anniversary (coming up in November).  So while I was out shopping at Wally World, I had picked up a sweet card and one of his favorite candy bars to stick in his lunch box the next day - just a little something.  Unfortunately, a day or two before, I gave John  the cold that I was getting over.  Only he got it much worse than me.  So he didn't take a lunch to work that day and instead came home from work around 10am to try to sleep it off.  Kinda ruined the plan a little bit since I had to tell him to look in his lunch box once he got home... but I think he was still pleasantly surprised :-)  .  

That night I came home to find beautiful white flowers and a card waiting for me.  So sweet!  
Lilies and roses. I'll post another pic when the lilies bloom :-)
And to end the night, I decided to attempt making some homemade chicken noodle soup.  Chicken noodle soup always helps when you're sick!  And if I do say so turned out pretty tasty.  And it made quite a few leftovers!  

Super simple recipe, but so tasty!
Anyone else have great home remedies for colds??


  1. Didn't know you were sick...:( So sorry to hear that. Hoping this message will go through now.

  2. I think some oh his leftover Crown ought to help him...

  3. I figured out how to make a collage! I am so excited, yay! Now you need to post a new entry for me to read. =)
