Monday Part Deux

Okay here is the rest of my Monday from hades

After my rear view mirror almost knocked me out.  I got a e-mail saying the ribbon for a dedication ceremony that afternoon was ugly like orange reflective tape ugly

Not quite the look we were going for.

At this point I am in the mode to jump on the treadmill and walk this bad morning off so I am in workout  gear, not go to Michael's gear. 

Quick outfit change.

Call a friend for back up and off we go Michaels bound. 
Get the ribbon, drop some of it off to my friend to make bows--she is a rockstar by the way, scarf some food down, go back to pick up bows, rush home shower and try to look presentable for pictures that are going in the paper and then get up to the school to set up the ribbon.  

Whoa I am exhausted just typing it again.  

Tuesday please be a nice and relaxing day.

Oh Monday You Are Not My Friend

I do believe this does not belong here

Pulling out of my son's school this morning my mirror came off and swung right toward my head.  Good thing I have good reflexes or it would have knocked me slap out.

And that was just the start of my lovely morning...The rest will have to wait until after I finally get my shower and can think straight....Monday's are evil I tell ya

My sister-n-law Patrice told me about this website.

Last week they posted a special that any blogger following PetBlogsUnited.com will receive a free gift, worth £10/$15 (or equivalent) for simply mentioning PetsDirect.co.uk on their blog.  

Great deal huh?

Still Cookin

I made the Macaroni Salad, but used a different recipe then the original one I posted only for the fact that it had all the ingredients I already had on hand.  It was really good, but if you are giving this to children I would omit the jalepeno's.

I also made this awesome Crockpot Italian Chicken.  My son was still talking about it the next day.  So I would definitely give it a try.

I used no yolk noodles with the chicken and it was a great pairing.
So what are you making this week?

Step away from the pinterest

My friend said this to me this week because I have been a recipe making fool this week and she knew the exact culprit for it.

Maybe a little black eyed pea dip to get your year off to the right start

Or some Chicken & Gnocchi anyone

It's cold outside so why not whip up some warm and hearty Chili

Or some Chocolate Chip Cookies because it said they were Chewy and I love a Chewy Cookie.

Oh my I have some ripe bananas so I must make some banana bread (this recipe is my all time favorite)

Next on the agenda some Macaroni Salad...Pictures to come Winking smile

To Resolve or not

I know I am late to the party on this one, but I am putting out there anyway.  Did you make a New Year's Resolution?

I have been reading around the blogosphere and some do, some don't and some think the whole thing is silly.  I for one kind of lean toward the whole thing is silly.

I kinda feel the word Resolution is setting you up for failure because of the huge amount of pressure you put on yourself.  The word goal seems like it would not be as much pressure.  Or maybe I will  just go with the flow and just see what life throws at me.

Yeah I like that idea.  Cause you know what they say "If you want to make God laugh tell him about your plans."

I told my sis-n-law Patrice that I am just hoping that 2012 is the year of feeling better and doing better.  Yep that pretty much sums up my goals for the year & I will also be living by this motto my friend Diane posted on FB the other day

And live by all things Maxine Winking smile
Have a great 2012 my blog friends.

Happy New Year

I totally rocked the New Year by falling asleep before midnight then waking up right before the ball dropped on TV.  Giving my hubby a kiss and a high five and then off to bed I went.

Such the party animal am I ;)
