"Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved" Mark 16:16

This past weekend was a very eventful one! Jason's papa came to visit on Thursday and stayed until Monday morning. Saturday we drive 4 hours north to South Bend, Indiana to watch Air Force get beat by Notre Dame. It was such a gorgeous day, we didn't mind losing too much :) Notre Dame is such an amazing campus, there is so much history there. I wish we had more time to walk around, but we drove up and back the same day, so didn't have too much extra time. Here are some pictures from our trip!

Sunday is a day that our family will remember forever. It was the day Jason was baptized! He has been talking about being baptized for as long as we have been together (almost 6 years) so it was about time :) I am so proud of him, it was definitely an emotional moment.

"Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." - Acts 2:38

Sunday was also the day that my beautiful niece, Zoey Ann, got dedicated. It was a wonderful day here in Indiana and back home in California. I just wish we could have all been together for both events, but pictures will have to do!

Jason's school schedule has become pretty routine and so has my work schedule, we nothing too exciting in that department. Jason is still putting stories out about once or twice a week. I will try and post them on here when they come out. I got the number for a lady who owns a temp service for dental offices, I might contact her so I can work on my days off (Tuesday and Thursday) for some extra money and something to do.

Walks, Serving and Veggie Pizza!

Today Jason and I had church in the morning which was amazing, as usual. After church we went to Which Wich for lunch and then took a nice walk around Indiana University. It's such a nice time of year around here. The leaves are starting to change and it looks so much like fall. It's funny, after living in Colorado for 4 years, 60 degrees is long sleeve shirt and jeans weather. A lot of people out here were in winter coats today. I saw some girls with gloves and winter boots on :) I would have been that way if I still lived in California. It's crazy how your body temperature acclimates itself to where you live. Here are some pictures from out walk today :) I love how IU has so many limestone buildings. They are so old and gorgeous!

The arches that get you to the campus from downtown Bloomington

Such a gorgeous walk!

Tonight we are going to church for Team High Rock where we can learn about serving at High Rock Church. We have been anxious about starting to serve, we just haven't yet. Jason wants to help out with setting up and tearing down for service (since we have church in the convention center) and I want to help out in the children's program. We just need to figure out where we fit and what Sunday's we can start helping out.

I made a vegetarian type pizza the other night and it was delicious. It took a little convincing to get Jason on board with it, but he like it when it was done. I just used mushrooms and asparagus for the toppings, but it would have been great with any veggies. Here is my recipe :)

Pillsbury Pizza Crust
1 jar pizza sauce
2 cups mozzarella cheese
2 packages fresh mushrooms
1 bunch fresh asparagus

Roll the dough out into a square. We rolled the sides up a bit to give it more of a crust to hold onto. Spoon pizza sauce into the middle of the dough, use as much or as little as you desire. Saute mushrooms and asparagus in skillet for about 10 mins. Adding olive oil as needed. Sprinkle cheese on pizza dough and sauce then spoon mushroom/asparagus mixture onto the middle of the dough. Bake in oven at 400 degrees for about 10-15 mins or until crust is golden brown around edges.

I usually don't make pizza, but my two posted recipes were pizza related haha. I made Almond Crusted Chicken this week too, but it wasn't worth posting =/
