Miranda Preston is a walking contradiction. Beautiful on the outside, but, insecure, haunted and damaged on the inside. Despite these contradictions, she’s ready to start Another New Life.

When her talent wins her a piano scholarship to the University of Texas at Austin, Miranda arrives on campus determined to experience everything college has to offer and to keep her secrets in the past where they belong.

An easy task, until the first guy who catches her eye happens to be someone, she’s known all her life.

Eight years have passed since the last time Miranda and Troy saw each other. He reminds her of the best and worst times of her life, but she can’t think about one without dwelling on the other. As they grow closer, every day their attraction reminds them they are no longer kids.

The epic romantic love story that is Miranda and Troy seems to be destined for a happy ending, but Miranda knows it’s only a matter of time before her secret is discovered. A secret that will not only destroy their relationship, it will destroy Troy, too.

Can Miranda focus on her future with Troy while preventing her past from tearing them apart all over again?

This will be a pretty easy recipe to share with everyone!  I’ve been making this recipe for a long time since I discovered it in my Mom’s recipe box!  A couple weeks ago, Tony and I needed the recipe and some how our copy was misplaced…I had my Mom text me the recipe and this is what I received:


Like I said, it’s super easy but it’s SOOOOO good! Any time a recipe calls for sloppy joe mix, we just make our own and include that for whatever recipe we’re having. We normally serve this on a whole wheat hamburger bun with a veggie and potato on the side. :-D

Monday Funday #12


My favorite radio station was talking about a baseball player and his significant other and some funny/awkward pregnancy photos that they had shared with the rest of the world.  It made me giggle and made me think about some other awkward pregnancy photos I’ve seen in my life.  I thought I’d share some of my favorites with all of you so you could get a good laugh on your Monday!!
