They say it’s your birthday

I’ve been MIA for much much too long!! We haven’t been able to get Internet service since we’ve moved and we’ll most likely be waiting a while on it anyway because we’re making two house payments right now and things are pretty tight! Who knows how long it will be until we have actual Internet at the house.

I’m about to head to work so I’m using the Internet at Starbucks right now and I’m posting on my iPad since I’ve yet to find my laptop in my unpacking. And also it might be awkward lugging my desktop in here!!

Anyhow it’s my birthday. It’s a tough one- 32! But I’m trying to start out the 32nd year of my life on a healthy note. Though I’d much rather wallow in misery and lay in bed and watch sappy movies all day!

I started out with a trip to the gym and hit up the elliptical! (I’m really hoping these pictures show up- I’ve never blogged from the wordpress app before)


And then finally got around to having my morning cup of coffee while I blog!


Now I’m headed to work! Have we talked about where I work?? My job is so much fun! I’m working for Good Karma Kitchen. It’s a vegetarian gluten free food truck and it has been hard work but such a blast! I’m getting some really great food service experience(and i DON’T have to work with meat!!!) and meeting some absolutely amazing people. And my two bosses are just the best. I feel so blessed to have found this job.



And those are my wild and crazy birthday plans! Wow I’m a party animal right? 😉

Have a great day y’all.

Birthday Bash

Long time no see!  Sorry about that- it’s been a really busy couple of weeks!  Lots of fun stuff coming up too, but let’s talk about birthdays!

I’m not much of a birthday person- it’s really just another day to me.  I don’t usually care much about them, but this year I thought it would be fun to celebrate since I turned THIRTY!!! 

So my best pal put together a fun little evening out.  It started with manis and pettis for us gals.  When we were pampered out we headed downtown for MARGARITAS!!  And there we met our other halves (aka the boys).  And we had some great Mexican food (veggie tacos, chips and salsa, and margaritas to my hearts content!) and we just sat and laughed and talked for hours.  The PERFECT birthday celebration!!

Picture time!  (thanks Katy for the pics!)

The gang’s all here!!  My favorite peeps in the world (minus one little brother who was out of town)  (Oh, and Joe is taking the pic so he’s not in it.  Thanks Joe!)


This is definitely a don’t ask.  LOL!



Wish I could remember what was so funny!  haha.



And yay for presents!!

A Bamboo cutting board!  It’s gigantic and I love it!!


Cutie little horse Katy got me when she went to Sweden!  Don’t know the story behind it yet, but it’s a big deal over there.  I need to look it up! 

DSCF2689Earrings made with love!  The pictures don’t do them justice- they’re way cuter in person!


Cute candle set.  LOVE candles!  And it smells SOOO good!

DSCF2685Look- it holds matches!  FUN!


Any friend of mine knows how much I love my starbucks!



And I got a little donation from my parents, grandmother, and In-Laws for my new camera fund!  My camera super sucks and I NEED a new one.  Unfortunately the one I want is quite expensive, so I’m saving up!  


Wow, after typing all of this I realize how seriously blessed I am!  Thank you so so much to my friends!!   I love you guys!


playing catchup

Today’s my birthday!  I’m not telling how old I am, but let’s just say I’m getting close to 30. (yikes!)  Since it’s also father’s day, I’m not really doing anything for my bday.  The hubby and I already celebrated so I’m good to go.  Birthdays aren’t really that big of a deal for me, so I’m not really into celebrating that much.  Probably mostly because no one ever remembers my birthday (except for my family).  It’s always like that when your birthday falls during the summer.  I love sharing my bday with the summer solstice, but no one ever remembers my bday.  I think I also share a birthday with Nicole Kidman and Prince William (swoon).

Playing catchup on yesterday.  Yesterday I woke up kinda late so I had a quick breakfast before heading out for some grocery shopping.

Fage greek yogurt with a drizzle of agave nectar, a handful of blueberries, and a handful of quaker oat squares.  Yum!


Then it was off to the market I went!  Look at all this stuff I got for $45!!


And I picked up these funny looking little squash.   I think they’re called Chayote?  I have no idea what I’m going to do with them yet.  Any suggestions?


I didn’t really eat lunch, I just snacked.  I had a little cheese and maybe a cupcake from yesterday.


I think I had a banana too.  I wasn’t really keeping track.

Then I cleaned the house a little, started some laundry, then settled in on the couch with a book until hubby got home.

Last night was pizza night!

On a (home meade)whole wheat crust I put…

  • pasta sauce
  • spinach
  • onions
  • bell pepper
  • mushrooms
  • mozzarella cheese

Then I made a little salad with cucumbers and strawberry tomatoes with a little drizzle of italian dressing.  It was soo good- those tomatoes were so sweet and tasty!



Now that I’m caught up from yesterday, here’s what was a scramblin in my skillet this morning…

  • eggs
  • turkey sausage
  • a few really small red potatoes
  • a sprinkle of aged Wisconsin cheddar

WOW!  SO good, but I could only eat half, so Justin had the rest of mine.


Oh, and some coffee from my wonderful French Press!


Well, that’s all for now!  We’re headed over to the in-laws for some Father’s Day celebrations!

happy early birthday to me!

My birthday is on Sunday, which also happens to be fathers day, so we are celebrating early.  Justin is taking me out for the day.  I think we’re going to the Botanical Gardens (to test out my present, more on that in a minute), then maybe a movie and some dinner.  It’s fun because I get to celebrate, but I don’t have to be a year older until Sunday, hehehe.

My birthday present.  I got a new CAMERA!!!  I can’t wait to test it out- it’s a great camera!  It’s charging right now and I’m getting really impatient to use it.  Here are some pictures of the new camera taken by the old camera (lol).


Look how small it is!


WEEEEEEEE!!!!  I can’t wait to start using it for food pictures!

Speaking of food, we had some birds in a nest for breakfast (is that what they’re called?  It’s where you cook the egg in a hole in the bread.  ah well, whatever it’s called, haha)


Served with some grapes and coffee.


I didn’t eat all of mine- I didn’t cook the egg quite enough.  I like mine over medium- yolk a little runny.  I think it was more over easy- there was still egg white that was runny, hurl!  Oh well, that just saves me more calories for tonight!  I think we’re going to Uncle Julio’s for dinner.  I’ve been wanting to go there for a while.  You can bet there will be some margaritas involved!!

Time to go- adios!!!
