He's getting married right this instant [I'm watching it live] in Capetown, South Africa to the most beautiful Nigerian woman! I can't believe I'm not there, but thankful I at least get to watch.
Congrats, David and Grace! Praying for you and wishing you both all the best!

Almost two hours later, we walked out with our 6 doughnuts. You have to remember that this shop is famous in Portland and its been featured on the Food Network channel multiple times so we expected these pastries to be like nirvana in our mouths! Some kind of near-religious experience for sure.
Unfortunately, the doughnuts tasted like normal, earth-like doughnuts no singing in our mouths or anything, but we did have an awesome time talking in line [despite being freezing!] and now we have a fun story! Plus, the shop was decorated really neat and I loved snapping photos.

Tomato Penne Pasta
salt and pepper
1 lb. whole wheat penne pasta
Half of a white onion
Red and yellow bell peppers
1/4 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves thinly sliced
2/3 pound cherry tomatoes (2 cups) halved or quartered
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
non-fat feta cheese
[The ingredients I added are the ones that don't have measurements!]
1. In a large pot of boiling salted water cook the penne according to package directions until al dente, about 13 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring, until just golden, about 1 minute. Add the cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, oregano, crushed red pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring, until tomato juices run, about 3 minutes.
3. In a separate skillet, cook the turkey sausage.
4. Add the penne, parsley, feta, and sausage to the skillet (or bowl) and toss to combine.

It was also his birthday on Thursday so we had fun combining the parties. I took the picture of the balloons and then my camera battery ran out so I didn't really get many pictures, but I did manage to take this one with my phone!
This picture below is proof that Spencer has always wanted to go into the military! Cutest kid ever.
