Happy Holidays!

Yup, it's that time of year again. Already?!

Thanksgiving was nice this year... we hosted
a huge meal for about 12 of our friends and
2 dogs (4 dogs total, running in and out of the
house, barking and what not). It was actually
NOT as stressful as I anticipated. Craig and I
did all the shopping a few days prior and prepped
as much as possible beforehand. Sooo, on the
day of feasting, we got to sleep in a little then
get everything ready in a relaxed manner. And,
we got to have some adult concoctions whilst
doing so, laughing AND kissing the whole time.
Then, after everyone helped with the clean-up,
packed up their to-go plates and said their
goodbyes, I got to hit the sack early.

It was awesome.

bacon wrapped dates on my celery stalk plate...
some of my best pals, cheesez....

Craig and our stalk of brussels sprouts...

Little tiny Lea's huge plate of food...

I was also gifted the most amazing bird house (that will never
make it outside because it's so incredible, I'm not letting ANY
bird shit all over it) by our dear friend Joffe. It really does deserve
it's own post, but here is a blurry pic of the inside...

I love Saturday afternoons...

Craig and I had a lovely lunch at Marble Brewery
on Saturday afternoon. We picked up some tasty
sandwiches from DG's Deli, sat on the patio and
enjoyed a sunny November day. It was awesome.

where to begin...
so delicious!
these too...
chompers on a rueben...
two thumbs up!

Say Cheese!

So, believe it or not, the time of year to take our Holiday
Family Photo is just around the corner.  For the past few
years, we have strived to send out original, yet fun cards
to our friends and family during the holiday season... just
to let them all know we're thinking of them. Here are a
few photos we've used on past cards... what do you think?

As you can see, we love to include our animals in our photos.
I guess we're sentimental like that. Or just plain bat-shit crazy.
You know, we're all a little crazy, right. Right?

But I digress.

Anyhow, this year I decided to try out Shutterfly for our family's
photo needs. I like that they have a number of options to choose
from...I like choice. And, if you plan on having a holiday shindig,
you can also choose from their selection of invitations.  I've been
perusing through the cards all afternoon, trying to decide on this
years big winner. Still haven't made the final decision, but I'll
be sure to share it with you!

If you're interested in receiving a good chunk of
free holiday cards of your own, go here.
That's right, free.

Ash from Army of Darkness... or is it?

Angus was Ash   from Army of Darkness for Halloween
this year... he made his decision early on and executed
it like a champ! Here are some pics of his obscure but
awesome choice of costume:

and if you're curious, this is the REAL Ash:

to the state fair. and i looove eating. this

We're gonna party like - it's your birthday, we're gonna sip Bacardi - like it's your birthday... and we don't give a F*$% 'cause it's your birthday!

so, guess who had a birthday this weekend?!
that's right, mama turned the big (?) 34 on saturday.

i got this awesome food processor, among a few
other thoughtful gifts... i used it to make these :

instead of ice cream, i made frangelico cream filling.
the pics may be a bit blurry on account of all the
winez i had whilst preparing the dessert...that'll happen.

Been eating...

that's what we've been doing.

things to do. Take a mo' and visit me at

Good Times

Craig and I were able to "go out" last weekend.
We took the bus down town, visited with some
old friends, and cabbed it back home. It was
a good time, indeed!

This is our good friend Gary Wayne!

Lola for you!

Here is sweet Lola... she is also crazy.

Good crazy, though.

She has amazing amounts of non-stop energy...
we like to joke (totally serious) that she is
the most fit person in our household. Non-stop.

We sure do love her.

She seems sad in her photos, but trust... she is not!
I will try to take a pic of her on a walk... she
jumps (as high as me, I'm 5'6"), yelps with delight and
wags her tail to the point that it gets painful if she
whacks you with it enough times.

Love that Lola!

it's been quite a while since i've posted.


meaningful or not.

anyhoo, i miss the old blog so i thought i'd
drop the old gal a visit today. hi old gal!

life has been fine these last few months.
i have to say, not having a reliable camera
has been HELL. as i mentioned, we have a
loaner, but it requires batteries, ACTUAL
batteries, therefore weighing a damn ton
and making "spur of the moment" photos
a huge hassle. i feel like we are missing out
on photos of our pets being crazy/funny/cute/insane,
delicious meals grown, prepared and consumed,
me with my all natural brown hair, craig with out
his facial hair(he looks VERY handsome!), angus
almost as tall as me... all sorts of stuffz!

anyhoo, blah blah blah, until i have a camera
that doesn't weigh as much as a baby, enjoy
this pic taken with "the brick".

Sons of Anarchy

Found another GREAT television show
to get hooked on... Sons of Anarchy.

Heard about it from a friend (who is married
to an A.T.F. agent) and we marathon-ed it
this weekend. Can you say OMG!?

(you're welcome!)

Hey Everybody!

Long time, no blog!

Hope you're well!

I've been up to a few things...
some exciting, some not so much.
Eh, such is life.

As I mentioned a while back, I dropped my
camera and have been using a loner (a BRICK!)
digital for important stuff. I want a new one,
preferably a DSLR, but we'll see when THAT
happens. Need some cash money, yo.

Anyhoo, I've been taking pics with my
old pal, Holga. It's been too long and it's
really nice to have her back in my life.
Stay tuned for some new shots.

I got to visit with some great friends this
past weekend. Amanda, Michell, Cara and Lori.
It was a blast to catch up and just be a girl!
We had a great time, may post a few blurry
pics soon!

Been enjoying the heck out of this gal:

Lola is a sweet thang! We really love her!

Bombay and the chickens are still around,
raising hell and whatnot.

And most recently, I was lucky enough to get a
Lambretta of my very own! That's right, I will be
riding around the 505 this spring, summer
and fall. Mine is a LI 125 Series 3, like this:

I'm really excited!
Honk if you see me!

'T' like the letter... not the hot beverage.

Have you seen United States of Tara yet?

I got hooked (guess you can call me a hooker?!) on this
series, 1/2 of the first season, a few weeks back. I can't
wait to see the the 2nd half.

Check it out!

Happy New Year... like 2 weeks late!

Glad it's over... you?

We had a busy few weeks there for a while...

Finalgled our annual holiday family photo:

It was a trial because we had a loner camera (sadly, mine
was broken when I dropped it RIGHT on the lens) and had
to wrangle the chickens AND Bombay... we did it... yes we did.

We  got a new family member,Lola... very sweet
and lots of energy. We got super lucky with her!

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday season!

Julie & Julia

As someone who enjoys cooking and learning about
food and of course eating, I was thrilled to see two
great actresses in a great movie.

We've all seen  Julia Child cooking shows growing up,
but it was really nice to "see" her in her earlier years,
the relationship she shared with her husband and her
  naughty sense of humor that I had no idea she had.

The movie introduced me to the blog, the Julie/Julia Project
the inspiration for the movie... and it's some good, fun

and oh yeah, I want this.

the Road

is the book I'm currently
reading and it's amazing.
I've been getting through it
as quickly as possible... I
NEED to know how it ends.

The movie version is coming out
soon... I think it's going to be good...
in the sense of casting. Alright, alright ~
I like Viggo Mortenson... who doesn't?

Thursday, November 12, 2009

lovin' it...

i'm loving this time of year!

the changing of leaves...
the way night-time creeps up on us WAY early...
the endless amount of movie watching...
the fact that it's snuggie weather...

AAAND, it's almost time for thanksgiving!

i love thanksgiving because i get to cook for
myself and the boys... and they tell me how
delicious everything is and they clean up for
me while i nap... ahhh, looking forward to it!

my trusty camera, that is.

i dropped it and the lens is not
working at all, totally my fault.


oh well. i guess this means
i get to get a new one...

hopefully soon.

until then, i will post some old
pics to remind me what a nice
friend that camera was to me.
