bye bye 28

So this was my list.
One year ago tomorrow, I wrote these thoughts down and then tucked it away.
Curious to see how that theory of "The Secret" plays out.
Completion rate 18 of 28.
Not bad I suppose.
soon to follow..
29 of 29.

impromptu night out

Randomly I flipped through our local paper and saw that Iliza Shlesinger
was doing stand up Friday night, 20 minutes from our house.
I loved her on Last Comic Standing and she more than delievered at our show.
My reality TV nerdism was totally satisfied tonight.

giving it a whirl.

This whole meal planning thing that is.
I am really a craving eater so I couldn't narrow it down to a what night we eat what list.
But, this is my attempt at a trusty "I want to make dinner easier" list.
On tonight's menu....Chili and cornbread.
Not my kids favorite, but it's cold here and a hearty dinner sounds yummy to Mom and Dad.
We trump the whiny I want Mac and cheese cries tonight.
Recipe goes like this.
1lb ground beef
1 small tomato sauce can
1 regular sized can of diced tomato
1 can kidney beans
a couple splashes of beer
garlic pepper
1 pkg. of chili seasoning mix.
Brown meat with cinnamon, cumin and garlic pepper.
Just keep shakin' it on until it makes a nice covering over the meat.
When browned add to a pot with all the other goodies.
warm up.
Serve on white rice
top with a dollop of sour cream and lots of sharp cheddar.
I like a little dill pickle too.
Cheers to a warm Academy awards night.
oh don't forget the cornbread with honey butter.

It was one of those rare times.

Like once in a 5 year span rarities.
I wanted to take Anthony to do something he had yet to try. (nearly impossible)
Something I could teach him. (who am I kidding)
Indoor climbing it was.
If you have not tried this sport yet, I really encourage you to give it a whirl.
It's so exhilarating and the sense of accomplishment you feel after reaching the top is indescribable.
Just Google indoor climbing gym in your city.
So mission accomplished for a wonderful date night for us.

I am a child of the eighties.

I loved Bottle Caps, Razzles, Jolly Ranchers and all that other goodness. and I have always thought it would be fun to be a blond.

Pictured above is my beloved charm necklace.
I LOVED this thing as a kid.
Sadly my favorite one was the mini toilet.
Weird and still not sure why that was the coolest one, but so it goes.

explanation of the pictures....
a dress up Rock band/ beer pong party.
a little collegesqe, sure, but it keeps us young right?
and as far as the blog absence goes, sorry mom.
I know you have missed the pictures and stories.
My crafty table has gathered quite the layer of dust in the past few months and I just thought I had nothing much to share.
But I do miss sharing the little things with my friends and family on here.
So I decided to let go of this self imposed "my blog must be a certain way" mentality.
Embrace and share the randomness that happens in my day to day.
