I saw this cheerleaders outfit for my niece who is only like a month old but will be the perfect size for it come football season.  Since she lives in Minnesota and her father (my brother) was raised in Washington State, that automatically qualifies her to be a Seahawks fan.  Screw the Vikings!  I mean…the Vikings are good too but her blood runs blue and green.  Isn’t this just too cute?  I’ll have to make pom poms for her when football season gets here.  GO HAWKS!!

Oh…and I got it for $4 marked down from $20.  How could I resist?

And this my sis and I found on Mother’s Day while strolling around Seattle…



L has been wanting to cook for me for some time now.  He’s pulled together recipes and we went shopping for the ingredients and let me tell you…grocery shopping was adventure of its own.  Bless his little heart, but that guy can not do anything small.  He’s never cooked and he decides he’s going to make Chicken Scallopine.  I think it took us about an hour of wondering the store with L asking me questions that made me wonder if my acting skills were gonna be good enough if this meal took  wrong turn.  Questions such as…”Do you think I could substitute chipotle for cayenne pepper?”  Now, I am not a chef by all means.  I do cook for L quite often but it’s pretty basic 4 ingredients kinda stuff ya know.  In fact, my George Foreman grill and I have a very close relationship.  Anyhow…so when he asked me about the chipotle…well, I thought that was just a kind of sauce.  I’m no help.  But I have to admit…he did pretty well.  He had a few hiccups but all in all, it was a great meal. (Except he forgot to make a side and he was very disappointed about it! lol He’s too cute!)  And couple days later he gave it another go and made chicken parmasagna which was pretty amazing.  He’s good at everything dang him! 🙂

Chicken Scallopine  


And did I mention I made him a Chef’s hat for the occasion?


And this is why I love my boss…


Our Cinco de Mayo lunch patron shot.  Another great day at work!  I just love the shot glasses too.  Really…How cute are they?

Just thought I’d share my love of Toyota’s with you.  I have 1994 Toyota 4Runner that just hit a milestone!

And yes…I was going 67 mph as I snapped the photo on my phone.  What??  I couldn’t NOT document this milestone.  That wouldn’t be fair to the Yota!

So last weekend L and I planned on having a date night in because our week had been so crazy. I made dinner and we watched a movie.  Well, maybe a night in wasn’t the best idea seeing how L was so tired, it only took a couple of beers to knock him out.  And seeing that we were watching Beer Fest (the reason we were drinking beer in the first place…fyi the movie’s not that funny) I was inspired by a hat one of the characters wore.  As L snored lightly on the couch I took the Coors Lite box, my glue gun and whatever randomness I could find and made him a present.
