To Do List

Last week was a busy week for me and I was able to get a few things marked off my "to do list". It started on sunday when I had to leave church a little early to go to my cousins baby shower. I got to catch up with some of my aunts/cousins and enjoy everything that goes along with a baby shower. It has been a while since I had been to one but I love them! I wish I would have wiped out my camera though b/c she has one of the cutest baby bellies...seriously! I can't wait to see what he/she looks like. It is a surprise baby! I don't know if I would be able to do that. I think I would want to know what I would be having...well atleast for the first one.

Monday and tuesday I had to work. Wednesday I knew I had a doctor appt. for my Pap. Ugh...not my favorite thing!! Plus I got a phone call tuesday saying my 6 month dental check up was the day also. Just glad they were at different times. So I was able to get both done in one day and I should be good for a little while now!!! And I figured if I was doing that much might as well hit the eye doctor up to. haha. So I got my glasses ordered too. I was on a role that day and glad I got all that done.

Thursday was the day I was looking forward to most that week. It was the day some of us girls were going to E-ville to hang out, shop and eat (Olive Garden..yum). We don't get to see each other that much since one lives in Terre Haute (Tiff), one in E-ville (DeAnne) and me and sis live back home. Our schedules seem to never work out..... but we FINALLY found a day that worked for everyone! Yeah! Good times.
Oh and one funny thing I seen at the maternity store I just had to tell. I have never heard of these.....tee pee for your wee wee! They are supposed to be used on your baby's wee wee when you are changing his diaper so you don't get sprayed. haha. The things that are made these day!

Friday my mom and dad came over. They were missing there grand puppy....Khloe. haha. Not me just Khloe. J/K. We talked for a while and then we went to wal-mart to pick a few things up. Jarod and I were just there and forgot a few things. I hate when that happens. Then I had to work saturday but got to leave 4 hours early. Oh I am always up for that especially on a week-end!!! Plus I was off sunday and never get off on one of my week-end's to work. It was nice though but then back to work monday. And now it is tuesday and I am just relaxing today. Catching up on little things.

Hope everyone has a great week!!

January Blues

This past week we haven't been very busy at all so this post won't be long. I figured I better update though since it has been a couple weeks since my last post. Don't want to go too long;) Last week week we didn't have any big plans and just did the usual work, eat, hang out, sleep routine. Well we did have wii in that routine too. We got the new wii resort game last week and it is a lot of fun! We have had our wii for almost two years and only have 2 games for it so we finally broke down and bought another game. The winter time is the only time we really play the wii b/c it is too cold outside. In the summer we would MUCH rather be outside:) January just gives us the blues. It is kinda that in between month where it has been cold for a couple months and we still have until March until it will start to warm up a bit. Why do we live in Indiana?! BUT we do have a little heat wave that I am loving!! Summer can't get here any sooner!

This past week-end I had to work and it was a good week-end and loved my patients. I love those days at work when you have just the cutest people:) Then this week my mom and I went to E-ville one day for her Christmas present. I gave her a gift card to Head over Heelz and told her we would go out to eat also. Well we did that and she loved it....and so did I;) A great mother-daughter day that we were due for! Last year I gave my mom a gift card to get a massage for her birthday to a different salon and both of us really like Head over Heelz much better. Totally recommend this place. They are really nice and even let you change into a robe and slippers before your massage/facial and have a little waiting area to relax while you wait.

This week we also got to hang out with our good friends Al and Sis and their kiddos one night. We just talked and watched some of the American Idol. I never really watch that show but it was funny. The best part......"Looking like a fool with your pants down low". hahaha. If you watched it you know what I am talking about. Funny guy! And I don't know any guy in his 60's that can get down on the floor like that.

Well.....not much else going on. See I told you. It is saturday and I don't know what we have planned today. Maybe going to the Barr-Reeve game....still trying to decide.

Hope everyone has a great week-end!!!

Something Yummy

I just wanted to do a quick post. If you are interested try these two recipes that are oh so yummyyy! Don't be scared to try them trust me they are good:) I fell in love with the chocolate cake it is one of the best I have ever tried. I am a big chocolate lover too....I can't make too many of these b/c I would eat way more than I should!!

Chocolate Cake

I used the Ghiradelli cupcake mix. I don't know if they have this at wal-mart (haven't checked yet) but I got this at Sam's. All you have to do is make the recipe on the back for the triple layer chocolate cake.
1 pouch cupcak mix
1 cup (8 oz.) sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs

For the Frosting
1 pouch Ghiradelli frosting mix (came in the box)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3-4 tablespoons hot water

Mix all the cake mix ingredients until blended and bake at 350 degrees for 16-20 minutes if you use three 8 inch round cake pans. I used two 9 inch pans and didn't have any problems. I think I cooked it a little longer though. For the frosting mix. Mix all ingredients on low speed for 30 seconds, scrape the bowl and then mix on high for 2 minutes until light and fluffy! Then all you have to do is put it together and your done and ready to enjoy.

Corn Bread Salad

1 box Jiffy
2 cans pinto beans
1 can whole kernal corn
6 green onions, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 med. tomatoes, diced
1 c. sour cream
1 c. miracle whip
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 pkg. real bacon bits

Bake corn bread according to box. Drain beans, corn and tomatoes very well. Use a paper towel to get rid of any excess moisture. Crumble corn bread into bottom of 9X13 pan. Layer beans, corn, onions, peppers, and tomatoes on top of corn bread. Mix the sour cream, miracle whip and ranch mix together well. Add on top of the tomatoes. Top with cheese and bacon bits.

Hope you enjoy!! I did get one last picture of the corn bread salad before we ate it;)
