Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday

 

Today is one of those days where I have so much to do that dinner is not even on my radar but I’m going to MAKE myself think about it.
Monday – BBQ Shredded Chicken Sandwiches (Crock Pot, you rock!). Next time I’ll make my own BBQ sauce like one of my old friends does.
Tuesday – Dinner Out? Girls Night Out and Then In. Guys Night Out too. PLUS, some awesome 4th of July Milkshakes because I have a ton of leftover blueberries and few strawberries.
Wednesday – Leftover Hamburgers and hot dogs.
Thursday – Dinner Out with the Non Profit
Friday – Sister In Law’s Rehearsal Dinner.
Saturday – Wedding Food
Sunday – Anything left in the fridge because tomorrow I leave on a Houseboat Trip! 

A Short Party Recap

A Short Party Recap

So we had a super awesome party on Saturday. We were celebrating Independence Day of course! Yay, America!

Yes, there was rain. A lot of it! It never stopped but people still came! A lot of people! They hung out outside too! We had umbrellas and canopies and they were filled to the brim with awesome peeps! Sadly, the super awesome canopy of lights did not have the desired effect on this crowd because the beauty of it needed a culmination of all things perfect and Saturday was ANYTHING but perfect. The end result was still awesome but someone changed the equation on me (Thanks God).
Thank you to everyone who came and especially to those of you that stayed for the intermittent fireworks show. Not only did most of my Midwest friend show up, I met some new friends AND grew closer to some people are now dear to my heart, ahem, Tori. 

Check Out My Office – Phase Two

Check Out My Office – Phase Two

Remember when I showed you how my office turned out. You know, the crisp green apple color that looked wonderful on the paint card and then looked like Ecto Cooler once it was on the wall? In case you forgot, click here.

Here’s a picture of phase two! It’s not done yet but surely you agree that it’s looking much better these days. I think it also matches my personality. I hope. Unless you think this looks annoying, lame, scary or serious…

Because I’ve Been Told It’s Going to Rain Tomorrow

Because I’ve Been Told It’s Going to Rain Tomorrow

 We had a trial run with our big 4th of July Extravaganza set up. There’s a 90% chance that it will rain (a lot) during the entire course of my party, so I thought I’d give you all a little preview of what was supposed to be.

Let me set the tone: Jay BBQ’ing hot dogs and hamburgers, 60-100 of our closest friends enjoying wine and beer and yummy side dishes. Music floating across the sky and into the woods and a canopy of light enveloping the night until fireworks burst high in the air.

Yeah, it was going to be glorious.

Dear God,

Please? No rain? Clouds are fine! Thunderstorms, sure. Lightening? Whatever. Just no rain or snow or hail or strong winds, please? Mostly, no rain.

The Bachelorette: Season 5

The Bachelorette: Season 5

One of my newest blog buddies (is there a better word for this?) lives in Canada. Today she celebrates Canada’s birthday.

During the past few days I’ve been laundering my clothes and cleaning my house for a super big 4th of July Bash (Yeah, America!). While doing all of this I’ve been watching hours and hours of the Bachelorette. I don’t know why because I really don’t like her! Some of my favorite trash talking radio show hosts are downright mean in calling her ugly and even worse. I won’t go as far as to pick on her looks but I do have a bone to pick.

What does all of this have to do with Canada? Well, Jillian, the bachelorette, is from Canada. So, I asked my blog buddy this;

I have a question for Canada: WTF is up with the bachelorette that Canada gave us? She has a stupid phoney laugh that makes me so mad! Her stupid screetchy, Lindsey Lohan-esque laugh hurts my teeth. Not only does she seem super fake, but lucky for her, based upn her judgement thus far she’s bound to pick an equally fake and cheesy guy!

Does anyone else share my feelings on this?
