My favorite guy is Stefano Langone..
So, is anyone with me? Watching this season? I have to admit, three nights a week is a LOT. I DVR it so I can fast forward through everything but still, quite the commitment.
There are so many ways to measure or analyze your life. Today while cleaning our kitchen from the yummy french toast I made this morning, I was admiring our fridge. Well, not at first. At first I was cleaning splatters of vanilla off of it because I dropped the bottle on the counter and it splashed everywhere, literally. Oh, it is SO not my week. First m&ms then vanilla? Really?! Anyway, after I wiped it off & discarded expired coupons and straightened pictures I realized we are so lucky to have these people in our lives. Our fridge is full of friends and family. Some we haven't spoken to or seen in years and some we speak to or see regularly. There are hundreds and even several thousand miles between some of them. :( The important part is that while this messy collage of random tid bits may drive some crazy, it makes me smile. Better yet, all of those BABIES make me smile! Can I have mine yet?! Please?!
My favorite items on the fridge are my magnet that says 'excuse the mess, we live here' (Huzzuh!), my cousin's daughter, who actually resembles me when I was her age, a lot! Just look at the red hair! And a fortune from a cookie that says 'you will obtain your goal if you maintain your course'. That seems like a no brainer... ha! Easier said than done though, right?
Anyway, just wanted to share my thankfulness today. I'm coming accross kind of mushy, and I'm not really that kind of person! Ha! It's been kind of a rough week around here so I suppose I'm just gaining some perspective.
I'm enjoying a snow day at home with my pets and trying to get some stuff done around here! Have a great Friday and weekend everyone! :)
Ok, I know you all are dying to know how my cookies turned out! You're not? Oh yes you are! ;o)
Turns out, a friend of mine wanted to buy cookies from me for her Bunco Party & a Progressive Dinner Party. Sweet! But I had to make sure they were nearly perfect! I took my time with them, employed my miniscule amount of patience and... viola! I made Valentine themed cookies because she needed them for the week before VDay and I made goodie bags w/nametags too!
I can post pictures from my phone but I can't put descriptions between them so you can just make up your own caption! ;o) I was happy how they turned out & I'm excited to make St. Pattys Day ones! :)
I don't see a cookie franchise in my future, but hey! If someone is willing to pay for the supplies and I can make some extra cash for my coffee habit... good deal! ;o)
I am SO curious to see how this turns out! My phone finally came on Friday, whew! Since then, my mom, Brandon, cousins and BFF Shandy as well as some other friends that have Droids have been addicted to Words With Friends! Yep, not just an iphone app now! Whoooptie!!! ;) In addition to making two large pans of lasagne, reprogramming my phone, getting addicted to that darned game and helping my mom's BFF (also a Realtor) with some marketing materials we also managed to submit a THIRD offer before 5 on Friday when we had to be at work. Phew!
I'm actually excited about this house! It has the most 'land' thus far and is in a great school district and neighborhood! It has been a complicated process as it is banked owned and buyers must be qualified through their bank first before submitting an offer although we were ALREADY prequal'ed with our lender. Ugh! But, that means that anyone else has to do the same thing which could delay the process of their offer being submitted which may mean our offer will be seen first and accepted! Haha! Sounds kind of childish... but hey! Do what you have to! ;)
Our weekend then was full of work as MIL/FIL were out of town for their anniversary (29 yrs!) and just like reliable restaurant employees do (snicker...) we had some bad apples this weekend! Argh! Brandon slept a total of 7hrs since Friday AM. :(
On a positive note? Our weather has been *gorg*! Cold? Yes! But to me that means fresh snow on all of our mountains to be seen with the beautiful blue skies! Yes! :)
I am sadly still without a computer. I know, just a tragedy. What's worse is that tomorrow is President's Day and I won't be at my SIL's watching Nickolai so I can't bum her computer! Lame! I need to buy my BFF Kristine's bday present... I want to get her something fun & funky from Etsy. She's the epitome of fun & funky.
Alright folks, I will leave you with this... I hope the pics work... I am the biggest klutz and almost peed my pants laughing. No worries, 90% of them made it out alive! :)
