Mama Mia on Broadway
We are enjoying $29.00 worth of drinks here. This was a martini I was drinking. Worst one I have ever had.
Dean & Deluca where we ate breakfast.
Beth surprised us with having cupcakes delivered to our room for our
Dinner before WICKED!! The owner of this Italian restaurant was kind enough to drive us to the Gershwin Theater in his fancy suv!!
My mother in law brought these fabulous white peaches to me this weekend. I wanted to do something fun with them. I scoured the internet for peach cookie recipes and everyone keep saying that the peaches were too moist and made the cookies too sloppy. I also saw a dump cake that looked wonderful but the same comments came up that the bottom of the cake was soggy. So I made a tried and true "crisp" recipe. I peeled 6 peaches, skipped the blanching, and added the "crisp" baked it at 350 for 40 mins. Ryan said it was fantastic. I don't want to try it. My diet seems to have forgotten where I live and can't find it's way back home. I don't even want to talk about the run in I had with a container of vanilla frosting. It kept glaring at me every time I would open my pantry door. Bad times right now..... Oh so anyways, back to the recipe. It smelled wonderful and I'm sure it tastes just as good!
Finished golden and bubbly....
This was Ryan's dish. Not mine! Not going near it. I also took your advice and started slathering on the tan in a bottle. Not so much vampire face anymore. More of a Tang face. This is also me at 9:30 p.m. I look like a bag lady! Good night bloggers!!! I'm going to retire to bed and dream of carbs dipped in chocolate. Night!
Alright, so today I finally finished this room. NEVER EVER EVER will I EVER whitewash a room and ceiling again. It was hard enough hand painting each plank, waiting for it to "almost dry and then wiping it down. Then I got to the ceiling. My mom thought I would be able to use a roller to do it. Like I have said before, it's like painting with milk. When I tried the ceiling with the roller, the paint rained on me and I was covered. I had to hand paint each and every ceiling plank. AHHH!!! I am worn out! I don't have the room put together yet. I am waiting for carpet to be laid and of course the new furniture. But I thought I would show you a little snipit of my progress so far......
This apology goes to my oldest friend Todd Shoemake. I forgot his birthday yesterday. To top it off it was the big 30! Just the day before I was talking to him about being one year older and Wednesday passed without me calling and sending him warm wishes. Needless to say I have no excuses!! I am soooooo sorry! He has threatened to write me out of his will. So please forgive Tipee Toe Tanner. I'm a jerk.
My favorite memory of Todd was when I turned 16 and picked him up at his job. He wanted to take my car for a spin. We got out of the parking lot, sat at a stop light, and 20 secs later my car got smashed into by a lady going 50 mph!! My car was totalled within one hour of having my license. He was my first boyfriend in grade school and from 1st through 7th grade we consistently got into trouble in class for "talking excessively". We also failed foods class (huh, no surprise right?) and almost burned down our kitchen stove in the classroom. Even my mother would consider him apart of our family. Sorry Todd. I hope that yesterday was a fantastic day................
These were dangerousCourtney being our official note taker. Her husband would be proud of her since he LOVES schedules on vacations.
My mom and I spent Sunday afternoon antique shopping. I found some great finds for my room redo. I also found this great little apron for $2.50. I have been wanting to make some aprons so I took the afternoon and tried. Tried being the key word. The green one below is the one I purchased. I cut almost half of the bottom off and replaced the pocket and hand stiched the little yellow flower on the left side. The black and pink one was all me. The pink fabric came from a pair of VS pajama pants I had but never wear. Both are super cute and I can't wait to wear them while I burn dinner. Hope all of your weekend's were wonderful and relaxing.
Little too long and boring
Shorter with a little more color
First apron, I now know the basics. More to come in the apron department.
Last night was such a good night for so many reasons. The night started off excellent because of the first picture. Don't mean to toot my own horn but I'm going to. The first picture of me is posted because I am wearing a size 6 jeans! Back in 2008 I was a 10-12. Slowly but surely I have been running it off. Slowly being the key word, jeez...... It also was excellent because Ry and I enjoyed an wonderful dinner and a movie. Then we went to Katies house where we went through a bottle of wine, watched a tutorial on Ryan's "new" phone, and caught up with our out of town friend. Lastly we ran up to a Herrin "watering hole" and saw some more friends and my sister. Let me tell you how weird it is to run into a baby sister at a bar. Still will probably be weird even when we are fifty. All in all it was a good night because it was spent with good people. Now we are off to St. L to do a little furniture shopping and to eat lunch with our friends up there. Have a beautiful Saturday!!
Usually Sami and I look identical, I think Ryan
