Fifteen Years!

On Wednesday, March 13th, Andrew and I will celebrate 15 YEARS OF MARRIAGE!

How cool is that?!

A lot has happened over the last fifteen years.  We’ve each grown a lot as people, we’ve each made mistakes, we’ve each had hard times, good times, fun times, crazy times…but we’ve done it all together.  In honor of this special anniversary, I thought we’d do a video version of my “girlfriend chats”.  Sit back, relax and watch my sweet hubby and me chat about our marriage…all fifteen fantastic years!

    I enjoyed watching to your video. My husband and I will celebrate 10 years of marriage this year, married at 22 and 24. I had to chuckle a couple of times because we relate in some aspects. My husband would be so nervous if I put a camera in front of him, lol!

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams March 8, 2019 at 5:42 am

    Happy Anniversary Shay! Have the best time on vacation with your family!!

  • Dorey Scheimer March 8, 2019 at 6:29 am

    wait right before you said it I thought, she looks like her mom!

  • Dana March 8, 2019 at 6:40 am

    Still making my way through the video, but this is so fun! I like being able to watch better than the ‘girlfriend chat’ audio files. Also, I sent you an email this morning. Would you mind just responding really quickly? I’m not sure what to do…(this is Dana from France). 🙂

  • chris March 8, 2019 at 6:51 am

    the video was so sweet. thank you for sharing.

  • Lynn March 8, 2019 at 7:01 am

    Such a great video, and I love that you addressed the Disney cruise comment I made a few weeks ago 😂 You and Andrew make a wonderful couple and have a very inspiring marriage. Congratulations on 15 years!!

  • Julie March 8, 2019 at 7:03 am

    The BEST husband EVER!

  • D'Andra Landry March 8, 2019 at 7:20 am

    The video! Cutest thing ever lol. Poor Andrew is like ahhh camera lol

  • Nicole March 8, 2019 at 7:23 am

    I loved watching this video. Your blog is the first thing I read when I wake up, so this video was an extra special treat!!! Happy Anniversary

  • Kathryn March 8, 2019 at 7:37 am

    Loved the video! And I think many of your long time blog readers knew all of the rapid fire questions about you even when Andrew didn’t 🤣

    • Mix and Match Mama March 8, 2019 at 7:45 am

      Hahahahaha! Right?! That made me LOL!!

    • Samantha Harris March 8, 2019 at 5:34 pm

      Haha me too!! I was screaming at the video 😂

  • Dana Powell March 8, 2019 at 7:54 am

    I’m dying over the rapid fire questions…of course you love green and shnitzel (German food)! He needs to read your blog more often. 🙂 But he did do great on the next ones!!

  • Sonia Limon March 8, 2019 at 8:01 am

    You guys are the cutest things EVER!! Congratulations and may your marriage continue to be Blessed for many years to come!

  • Vicky March 8, 2019 at 8:02 am

    This is awesome! What a fun feature! (And great job Andrew on stepping out of your comfort zone to do it!) Happy anniversary to you both! 😃

  • Erin E Port March 8, 2019 at 8:15 am

    Happy Anniversary and enjoy spring break with your sweet family 🙂 can’t wait to watch your video!!

  • Emily Wakefield March 8, 2019 at 8:16 am

    Oh my! I had the BEST time listening to your video this morning! Congratulations on 15 years and thank you for your willingness to talk about Christ and prayer and the hard things!

  • Amber Vance March 8, 2019 at 8:18 am

    Loved it! Y’all are the CUTEST!!

  • Laura March 8, 2019 at 8:20 am

    Happy Anniversary! I love seeing how the Lord puts together two people who compliment each other and when they recognize it, they build a team. It doesn’t make life or marriage easy, but it does pull you through together. This year my husband and I will be married 30 years and we both think we are the one in the marriage who is luckiest to find the other.

  • Elizabeth Feldpausch March 8, 2019 at 8:23 am

    I’m really proud of myself for yelling German food before you even finished the question 😂😂

  • Jo Ellen March 8, 2019 at 8:23 am

    Happy anniversary! I pray that you all will have many, many more happy years together!
    LOVED this video! it was so fun and what a great keepsake to look back on!
    Thank you for sharing your family with us Shay!

  • Dana March 8, 2019 at 8:38 am

    After reading your blog for years, and watching this video, I FINALLY figured out who you remind me of…. Jamie Pressly from the show, Mom. You look AND sound like her!! 🙂

  • Andrea March 8, 2019 at 8:45 am

    That was such a great video. I learned so much about Andrew…and you too!!!!

  • Carly March 8, 2019 at 8:48 am

    Shay, I feel like I have so many favorite posts of your but this one really tops them all. I loved every minute of it and I thought I only wanted to be friends with you BUT now I need to be friends with Andrew too. Have a wonderful vacation and Happy Anniversary! ….and yes..remind Andrew that we always celebrate Friday eve around here.

  • Jen D March 8, 2019 at 8:48 am

    I’ve been a fan of your blog for years and LOVE your sweet family… but I have to say this was my favorite post you’ve ever done. ❤ your love for one another is apparent and spills over unto your precious kiddos. You are both very blessed. Thanks for the great interview with each other!!

  • Jade March 8, 2019 at 8:48 am

    I loved this video so much! You are stinkin’ adorable and Andrew’s accent is so cute, I had no idea it was so strong!

  • Kelly March 8, 2019 at 8:49 am

    I was laughing out loud at your story about the wedding video. The pictures of my husband before our wedding are tear filled and emotional. My photos are my bridesmaids & me having a dance party.

  • Melissa March 8, 2019 at 8:59 am

    Loved this! You should post the video you guys did for FBC McKinney years ago for a fun comparison (I sound like a stalker 🤣)

  • Bev March 8, 2019 at 9:00 am

    I watched the entire video and felt silly because I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for most of it! Happy Anniversary to a great couple!

  • Chrys March 8, 2019 at 9:01 am

    This was AWESOME!! I absolutely loved seeing you both interact. Enjoy your Spring Break and loving on your hubby and kids. ♥

  • Chrys March 8, 2019 at 9:05 am

    This was AWESOME!! I loved seeing you both interact…super cute! Enjoy your Spring Break and loving on your hubby and kids. ♥

  • Tina March 8, 2019 at 9:08 am

    Love the video! I think we need more in the future.😊 Happy Anniversary!

  • Brittany B March 8, 2019 at 9:10 am

    Happy Anniversary! Loved the video and hearing how God orchestrated your story. You guys should do more videos together more often! Have fun on your trip!

  • Kelly March 8, 2019 at 9:13 am

    Loved your girlfriend chat with Andrew. I hope that you both mentor newlyweds at your church! You just really seem to love each other and are committed to your marriage and I’m sure you are inspirational to a lot of couples. Thanks for sharing!

  • Angela Ellingson March 8, 2019 at 9:13 am

    I have literally read every blog post you’ve ever posted! (I was sick in bed several years ago and back read all of the post pre-Sean’s bachelor days when I first discovered you.) And I have to say, this is my favorite post ever! You two gorgeous people are so fun and so inspiring. Can this be your new way to do girlfriend chats moving forward?!

  • Allena March 8, 2019 at 9:13 am

    My husband I celebrate 15 years of marriage this year too! We’ve been together since we were 16 so in total we’ve been together 22 years – time flies! Congrats to you two and have a great trip.

  • Angela Ellingson March 8, 2019 at 9:14 am

    PS: Happy anniversary!! Enjoy vacation!

  • Elyse H March 8, 2019 at 9:23 am

    That was the cutest video ever! I am getting married in May, and think you guys are such a great example of a marriage and family. Thanks for sharing! Happy anniversary!

    Ps- thanks for helping me plan my honeymoon, Mix and Match Travel Agency and Claire!

  • Angela Shields March 8, 2019 at 9:25 am

    Y’all are adorable and such a great example for all of us!
    Happy anniversary!

  • Julia March 8, 2019 at 9:29 am

    Loved the video!! Once I realized how long it would be I hopped on my peloton and got in a workout while watching it all! You two are so sweet! Can’t wait to see where you go for spring break to celebrate!

  • Kelly S. March 8, 2019 at 9:30 am

    Shay, you and Andrew are PRECIOUS! Such a Godly example of love and marriage. Happy anniversary, and best wishes for a lifetime of love and happy memories. Side note: I think you are just as intense as Andrew (I mean that in the best way possible!). 🙂

  • Kim Long March 8, 2019 at 9:30 am

    Congrats on 15 years! Your video was so cute! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂

  • MelanieL March 8, 2019 at 9:34 am

    Happy Anniversary! I just loved this so much, thank you Shay and Andrew. 🙂 4 things: 1. You do look just like your mom with straight hair. 2. The wedding video story is hysterical! 3. Andrews heart for Manda and Ashby had me in tears. 4. When he asked in response to your favorite meal question…Like time of day meal? LOL I was dying!! Have a great vacation!

  • Vivian G March 8, 2019 at 9:47 am

    The way he said he had you when you guys first met was so funny. That part made me laugh and I admit I did replay it. Happy anniversary!!

  • Amy D. March 8, 2019 at 9:49 am

    Happy Anniversary to you & Andrew! 🙂

  • Jennifer Hampton March 8, 2019 at 9:51 am

    Why am I over here yelling “GERMAN!” “GERMAN FOOD!” IT’S GERMAN!! Hahaha…. I absolutely loved this!!!!

  • Theresa Wenz March 8, 2019 at 10:08 am

    Oh my goodness…..this was absolutely awesome!!! I thoroughly enjoyed the video and allowing us another peek into your world. You two do make a great team and I loved how Andrew said it is about how we react to the not so great times that makes the difference. None of us gets a free pass when it comes to hardships, struggles, etc. This video was warm and funny. Congratulations to 15 years and have a great spring break!!!

  • Emily March 8, 2019 at 10:16 am

    Happy anniversary!! Loved this post.. probably one of my favorites you’ve done!

  • Sharon March 8, 2019 at 10:33 am

    I loved that video! You and Andrew are so cute together. I couldn’t understand his answer for your favorite TV show even though I played that part 3 times. I thought you loved Frasier.

  • Cassidy March 8, 2019 at 10:38 am

    That was so fun to watch! You guys are definitely an inspiration. I loved the rapid fire questions and yes, we were saying GREEN!! 🙂

  • Katie March 8, 2019 at 10:46 am

    This was just the sweetest! Can we be best friends? Happy Anniversary to you both and thank you for sharing your life with us.

  • Alice H March 8, 2019 at 10:50 am

    I loved this! I feel like I got to know Andrew so much better. And I love his “accent”. And dang I teared up a little bit when he was talking about Ashby and your friend Amanda, you could see him trying really hard to not choke up and cry. Happy Anniversary!

  • Julia March 8, 2019 at 11:01 am

    This is adorable. You guys are SUCH a funny and cute and FUN couple and I love that we got to “know” Andrew a bit more. I LOLd when you were whispering “he is…he is…” as he’s saying he’s not a perfectionist. Your love for your kids and family is amazing. Thanks for sharing with us and happy anniversary to you both!

  • Lauren March 8, 2019 at 11:13 am

    OMG! Out of all my years of reading, this is one of my VERY favorite posts!!!!! Love Andrew!!! Tell him we need him to appear more often! ☺️☺️

  • Jess W March 8, 2019 at 11:14 am

    Loved your video! Just wanted to say I am also a neat freak and love that you guys are too (and I’m not the only crazy one in this world)! My husband of 8 years has had to adjust to that, and I would say has developed some neat freak habits as well! It’s also funny that likely your blog readers knew a lot of your rapid fire questions!

  • Sara March 8, 2019 at 11:18 am

    Love, love the video! Thanks for sharing. I can just picture all of us long time blog readers screaming the answers…GREEN, GERMAN FOOD, SEPTEMBER!!!! Haha! Happy Anniversary guys!

  • Janie March 8, 2019 at 11:19 am

    BRAVO ! You two are so real ! Many Many more years of LOVE !!

  • Paige March 8, 2019 at 11:20 am

    I enjoyed that sooooo much!! You guys are very well matched, have truly figured out what works for your family!! And since no one else has the nerve to say it, YOUR HUSBAND IS FLIPPIN’ HOT!!! 😉 Gah, and his accent, and intense (yet calm) perfectionist ways kinda make him even CUTER!! ha!!! Enjoy your trip together!!

  • Melanie March 8, 2019 at 11:28 am

    I loved your video! All I could think about is that y’all would be good at having a podcast! I would listen to it for sure! Happy anniversary! My husband and I will celebrate 13 years on March 25th!

  • Deana Lewis March 8, 2019 at 12:00 pm

    Congrats on your 15th anniversary and thanks for filming and sharing this video! So so fun 🙂

  • Kalynn March 8, 2019 at 12:19 pm

    Loved that! So cute! And I felt like I knew all those answers from reading your blog over the years 🙂 Happy anniversary!

  • Amy Baker March 8, 2019 at 12:46 pm

    Happy 15th Anniversary Shay and Andrew! You are such a sweet couple. I really enjoyed the video so much – thank you again for sharing your life with us! Have a wonderful spring break with your family! 🙂

  • Carlie March 8, 2019 at 12:46 pm

    You are my favorite blogger! I’ve been following your blog for a few years now. I love your sweet little family, but especially love your devotion to Christ and how you show that in your everyday. Thanks for sharing your life with the world! Happy Anniversary!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick March 8, 2019 at 12:56 pm

    I really want to try that cheesecake but I don’t want to make it. haha. (Are you surprised by that AT ALL? ha!) HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to one of my favorite duos!
    That Inspired Chick

  • AJ March 8, 2019 at 1:01 pm

    that was really sweet. happy anniversary! he seems like a genuinely great guy.

  • Jennifer March 8, 2019 at 1:02 pm

    Oh I LOVED this! Such a fun video – you guys should make this a regular thing! 🙂 Happy Anniversary, Shay and Andrew!!

  • Sarah March 8, 2019 at 1:04 pm

    Love love love everything about this video!!!! You guys are too cute! Andrew’s work ethic and eating and workout habits sound identical to my hubby! Now you should do a cute little video all about parenting and the things you’ve learned and philosophies you live by for disciplining and raising your kids. You guys have plenty of experience raising 4 kids so I’m sure your readers who have young children would love to know your thoughts on parenting!

  • Evan March 8, 2019 at 1:18 pm

    Happy Anniversary! It was so cute to watch you two together. Andrew was a good sport. I loved the rapid fire questions and that I’m sure, like myself, your blog readers knew some of those answers better than the man who lives with you. hahaha Such a cute video! Thanks for sharing!

  • Julie March 8, 2019 at 1:20 pm

    You are soooo cute!! Loved this!! Happy Anniversary!!

  • Ashley March 8, 2019 at 1:28 pm

    I think this just may be one of your best posts! Thanks for sharing with us! Also, Kensingston looks just like Andrew! I always thought she favors him a little in pictures, but I just realized how much they look alike. Smith is all you though!

  • Jamie March 8, 2019 at 1:33 pm

    Kansas girl here! I always forget your hubs went to Kstate! Both my husband and I went to school in KC, but we both have a lot of family and friends that went to kstate and we always root for them! EMAW! A guy I graduated HS with was starting quarterback for KSU for a bit, but that was 2006 and after Andrew’s time there, it sounds like. Also, most of my hubs’ friends graduated from KSU in ‘05 and ‘06 so I don’t know if Andrew would have known them, but still feels like a small world 😉

    Love love loved this video! Would you consider doing more in the future? So fun 🙂

  • Yulenna March 8, 2019 at 1:44 pm

    Wow! The video was a nice change!! Do more often. 😊May God continue blessing your marriage & your family! 😊👏🏻

  • pam March 8, 2019 at 2:04 pm

    AMAZING! I grew up in Irving, too! Now I’m in MO (like Andrew’s parents). I’ve been married for 31 years & yes, it is “hard” work, but worth it. Kudos to both of your parents for being awesome examples-as you both will be to your children (which are all preciously cute by the way)! I love when Andrew talks about it’s not what happens but the way you look at it, how you react to it, your attitude towards the “incident” whatever it may be. You both, with your families, help me keep faith that there are still good, honest, loyal people in this world despite the hardships you may have experienced as a couple & family. Thank you for sharing your lives, and your faith. Happy 15th Anniversary, & “Here’s to many more!” 🙂

  • Courtney March 8, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    Congrats on 15 years! That’s so awesome. I really enjoyed watching your video. 😊

  • Rhoda Watson March 8, 2019 at 2:24 pm

    Andrew is such a good sport and handsome too. I think you should keep him:) Happy Anniversary.

  • Amy Heinl March 8, 2019 at 2:26 pm

    Happy Anniversary..may you be surrounded by love always. Have a wonderful family vacation. I loved the video chat…It is easy to see why you to where part of God’s plan for one another. Hope you consider doing more video chats together…would love for Andrew to hit you with the rapid fire questions…lol

    I’m sitting here working on my Monday post, and I listened to the entire hour! I loved it!!!!!! Love you! xoxo

  • Malorie Fuchs March 8, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    I was yelling German Food at the screen! So fun, thanks for sharing!

  • Raquel Whatley March 8, 2019 at 2:31 pm

    Adorable video! You two are super sweet! Happy Anniversary!!

  • Angie G March 8, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    This video was so great! Thanks for sharing! Fun to see y’all in “real life” vs. written/IG clips. Also, these words Andrew spoke over your kids, I hope they treasure them forever and go back and know how well their Daddy knows them and cares for them. Also, about how to react, choosing our reactions. Lots of wisdom here for all. Have a happy anniversary!

  • Raquel Howes March 8, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    This was one of my favorite blog posts of yours and I’ve been reading your blog every day for the past 8 years! So fun, thanks for sharing Shay and Happy Anniversary!

  • Melissa March 8, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    Happy anniversary! Loved the video. My husband and I have been married 12 years, and we also have 4 kids. I loved the dynamic between you and Andrew. You two compliment each other perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

  • MICHELLE O March 8, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    You two are so REAL!! Wishing you both a Happy 15th Anniversary. I kept whispering “Green”…like you guys could hear me. LOL!

  • Dorinda Doft March 8, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    You guys are too cute. We don’t get to see enough of Andrew. He’s a good sport for being in the video. Breaking Bad is your favorite show? You need to come to Albuquerque and I’ll give you a breaking bad tour.

  • Alexis deZayas March 8, 2019 at 5:47 pm

    Please do this every year!! I was screaming the answers to Andrew (green, September, Thursday)! Have so much fun on your trip!

  • Katie M Stuen March 8, 2019 at 6:14 pm

    I LOVE LOVE LOVED this! So real, honest and humble. You are honestly someone I idolize and hope to be half the mom you are one day, I was smiling through the whole video. Cheers to 15 years and 50 more. Have fun on Spring Break!

  • Debbie March 8, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    Loved the video! Have the happiest anniversary! In this day and time, fifteen years is quite an accomplishment! My husband and I are on our forty-second year and my son and his wife on their thirteenth. It takes work but it is worth it!

  • Kate March 8, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    I was screaming green and September! Ha, I enjoyed watching. Have a great vacation.

  • Carol March 8, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Totally cute.

  • Olivia Young March 8, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    This was one of my favorite posts of yours! Congratulations on 15 years!

  • Tisha March 8, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    I loved the video!! Happy Anniversary! I hope you have a great trip!

  • Dianna March 8, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    I loved watching this. I mean this in a nice way but you two have gotten better with age. You are a great looking couple. I laughed out so many times. Andrews love for God and his family are so evident. Thanks for giving us a peek into your relationship.

  • Tamara R. March 8, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    Awww you guys!!! 😍. This made my day! And your cute dimples! Loved getting to see you two together and realizing how similar our husbands are (since I already know how much you “get” me, of course they are! lol). Xoxo

  • Melissa Clarke March 8, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Awww I loved watching this! I’m a newbie to your blog….I love how you keep it so real and keep God in the center! And even though you never know how something will impact others, I’m excited to share a few words from your hubby (in the last 5min) with my 18 yr old son (last year of high school/pole vaulter) about having the right attitude in different situations. Thank you for sharing a little extra!

  • Julie Bradford March 8, 2019 at 9:54 pm

    What a fun post!!! Yes I’d love to see more of these!! So fun- & what a great sport Andrew was!!!! A few times I got so tickled bc it was so Smith!!!!! Loved it!!! & yes I was screaming the answers before he did!!! Hilarious!!! Have fun on the cruise!!!

  • Jenn March 8, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    This may have been one of my favorite “posts” ever! It was so neat to hear you and Andrew talk about fun and personal things. I cried over him talking about Manda and Ashby. So sweet! I also was yelling “green!” and “Oh my gosh Andrew, German food!” 🤣You both are very lucky to have each other! Congratulations on 15 years.

  • Diana March 8, 2019 at 10:51 pm

    This was my favorite post ever!! You guys are seriously #marriagegoals. I love Andrew’s perspective on life and how involved he is with the kids. He should do some sort of motivational speaking on the side lol….he had a lot of good advice! Side note…this is the first time I’ve heard Andrew speak and I never would’ve pictured him to have such a southern acccent…love it!

  • Lauren Barnett March 8, 2019 at 11:25 pm

    Shay, I haven been a loyal reader for almost 8 years now…and this was my favorite post you’ve ever done. EVER. Seriously, I could watch it multiple times to write down marriage advice. So fun, honest, and enlightening. So inspiring to watch as I prepare for my own wedding in 2 weeks! Love from Tennessee!

  • Taylor March 9, 2019 at 2:26 am

    This was my favorite thing ever. I vote you do more videos. So fun!!!

  • Tracy March 9, 2019 at 7:11 am

    Cute video! Happy Anniversary!

  • Meryl March 9, 2019 at 9:10 am

  • Karen March 9, 2019 at 9:53 am

    Congratulations on fifteen years! Thanks for sharing this video. It was fun getting to know Andrew a little more, and I loved hearing about all of these things from both perspectives.

  • Paula March 9, 2019 at 10:45 am

    Happy Anniversary! My husband and I will celebrate 19! It is such a blessing to grow, change & experience life together.
    BTW-I love Thursdays too for the exact same reason! You make it to Thursday, you conquered the week. 👊👊👊

  • Amanda March 9, 2019 at 11:30 am

    This was so much fun to watch! Happy anniversary to you and Andrew!

  • Debbie K March 9, 2019 at 11:37 am

    I just had some alone time and I sat and watched the entire video. I found myself smiling at the two of you…and yes…I was trying tell Andrew German food…Schnitzel! My husband and I will celebrate 28 years of marriage in June. It is work, but like everything, it is worth it. Loved Andrew’s advice of how you react to things. That has always been me. I too don’t want to be negative. Hoping you two will do more of this in the future. It was nice to see and hear you both.

  • Amy March 9, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    I’d love to see you do a video with Sean about your childhood.

    Loved the video and seeing the two of you interact! Congratulations on 15 years! My husband and I are celebrating 25 in March. We too have had lots of ups and downs, but do the hard work to stay together. It’s not always easy, no relationship is. We are a team and we don’t keep score and that’s what has worked for us. You and Andrew are committed to one another and have each others’ backs. Good to witness and I wish you all the best.

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching this! Someone should snatch the two of you up to have a talk show. I’d enjoy watching you guys way more than Kelly & Ryan. You’re so dang wholesome and you both have a great outlook on life. I love how God-centered and family-centered you are. Thank you for being real and being such an inspiration. A very happy anniversary to you both!

    I have to say Shay after watching your video, you and Andrew are just so real, which is refreshing. The love, respect and admiration the two of you have for one another is a testament of how you both were raised. You are raising such sweet babies. Ever consider doing podcasts, etc. You both would be great at it. Andrew came across cool, calm and collected. You both were naturals. I found your blog due to the Bachelor so there is another good thing that came from Sean’s season LOL! Hope you have a great spring break. Congrats on your anniversary!

    Loved, loved this video/vlog! It was such fun to get to know Andrew better! He is such a gem and I love watching and listening to you interact! You are an incredibly dear couple coming from two terrific families! It is no surprise to me that your family is special and precious! Thank you for sharing and Happy Anniversary on the 15th! ❤️🍾🥂🍾❤️

    Congratulations on 15 years! The video was great! I wasn’t expecting to cry as much as I did but it was really touching! I think I read another comment about Kensington looking like Andrew and I agree. I could really see that when he was talking. May the Lord give you many more happy years together!

    Hi! I have your Chicken & Ranch Enchilada Stack on my meal plan for tomorrow but realized I bought enough stuff to make two. Do you think if I make two one would freeze well? Thanks
