Did that REALLY Just Happen????

Pin It

BEWARE of the Newspaper

I was sitting at McDonald's a few months back and a man walks in, I glance up and for some unknown reason watch him!  He walks over and picks up the newspaper from a stack on the table!  Now this is the same stack that EVERYONE that comes into McDonald's reads!
He then walks WITH THE NEWSPAPER into the BATHROOM!!!!!!!!
So we go on having our breakfast when about 10 minutes later he strolls out of the bathroom, looking rather CONTENT, and tosses the newspaper back down on the table!!!  Now I swear to you, I am sitting there with my mouth on the floor!!!  WTH (what the heck) just happened?????  R U KIDDING ME!!  I just have to sort out the facts in my head!!

1. He took the newspaper into the bathroom
3. He had to lay the newspaper on the floor to wipe! I have really tried to reason another solution but just can't unless he laid it on the commode!
4. He then had to pick up the newspaper with the hand that he just wiped his rear with!
5. He brings it back and puts it on the table for EVERYONE else to read!!

I am SPEECHLESS!!! ( not very often)

I just kept thinking WTH was this man thinking!! 

So I am traumatized and my kids are not allowed to go ANYWHERE near the "paper table!!!"

My sister-in-law sent me a message yesterday CHALLENGING me to INVENT a recipe from a few ingredients that someone gives me!!  SO here is the recipe!!  LET ME KNOW how it turns out!! 

She gave me:
Chicken Breasts
Cornbread mix

I immediately thought of Mexican Cornbread so here goes!!!

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn
  • 1 (15 ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 (8.5 ounce) package corn bread mix
  • 2 1/3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons canned green chile peppers, chopped
  • 1 (4 ounce) jar chopped mushrooms, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Monterey Jack cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Melt margarine in a small skillet over med-high heat. Saute onion and garlic until tender, 4 to 6 minutes; set aside. In a large bowl, combine corn, cream style corn, salt and eggs. Beat in muffin mix. Fold in cooked onion mixture. Pour into prepared baking dish.
  3. In a large bowl, combine chicken, green chiles, mushrooms, sour cream, salt and pepper. Spoon over corn mixture to within 1 inch from edge. Sprinkle top with cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.

Hope everyone ENJOYS and have a great THURSDAY!!  ;)

Dining Table

Pin It
Dining Room DRAMA

Todd and I have been married for 17 years and together for 18!  I still remember our 1st fight like it was yesterday!!  I say fight because I had never seen Todd upset and he was REALLY irritated with me!!  Now you all know that Todd NEVER gets really mad....that would be me in our family!!  ;)

We had gone to look at this table and the woman wanted $100.  He looks at me and asks what I think, WELL, I didn't want to upset him, so I said it was "fine!" 
 What does "fine" mean to a woman?????  Let's just say...he NOW knows!! 
We bought the table and when we left I made the mistake of telling him that I did not think the table was worth $100!  Well, I will leave the rest to the imagination BUT he was not a happy camper!!!  He refinished the table and it turned out AWESOME and we have had the table ever since!! 
About 5 years ago (maybe more) the table started getting REALLY rickety and I started wanting a new table!! I started looking and found the table that I wanted for the tune of $2400 WITHOUT any chairs!!  WOW!!  WELL Todd said "NO!!!!!!!"
So now my heart is set on this table and NOTHING else will do!!  So fast forward to about 4 months ago when a friend of mine told me about ana-white  and I found a table that I loved!  So once again I went to Todd and told him that I wanted him to BUILD ME A TABLE!!!  Now, imagine the look on Todd's face!!  ;)
(he really does love me!!)

So being the WONDERFUL HUSBAND that he is, he built me my table!!  I hope that you love it as much as we do!! 

Don't EVER be intimidated!!  You CAN do anything!! ;)

Lots of Fun Stuff

(and if you see any MISSPELLED words, PLEASE feel free to point them out.....I do live in a very CHAOTIC environment and I am normally typing while cooking, cleaning, crafting, doing homework, wiping bottoms, cleaning catbox, folding clothes, cleaning commodes, loading the dishwasher, unloading the dishwasher,OHHHHH....EXCUSE ME, I forgot my train of thought!!!!)
Today under "Crafts" I am posting our dining table and my favorite CHALKBOARD!! 
Under "Nummy's" I am posting my Taco Soup that a friend has requested that I post!!

Work out from H%&*!!!!!

Pin It

YOU want me to do WHAT????????? most of you know, I am NOT a workout freak and I intake more SUGAR than any sane person should in a lifetime!!  I KNOW, I KNOW!!!  But I just can't help myself!!  I always say that I am going to stop.....RIGHT after this BAG of powdered donuts!!  ;)

Soooooooooo, I have these 10 lbs that seem to stick to my rear that I need to get off but at the same not requiring me to "give up" any of my FAVORITE CARBS!!!  I run a couple of times a week but it is just not cutting the MAYO (if ya know what I mean!!!) and this my friends was what took me down this BARBARIC road that I am on!! 

Todd was telling me about this new "program" (excuse me while I CHOKE) that the MMA people are using to workout!!  So me being OBLIVIOUS to what MMA was, I convinced my BARBIE friend to come join me!!  We bee bop out of the car like we are headed for a shopping trip and enter what I will refer to as "HELL" These men are all kicking, hitting and throwing each other to the ground!!  Now picture 2 BARBIES that just landed in the middle of a war zone.....can you say "deer in headlights".....;)

I am thinking we should have turned and RUUUUUN but NOOOOOO we stayed!!!   It was HORRENDOUS!!!  I did not think it was possible to do the things he made us do!!  I will have to say that it was the fastest 30 minutes of my life!!;)  We walk out holding our heads up high and think we must not be so bad...WE MADE IT!!!! 

Now this is where the story gets a little CRRAAAAAZZZYYY!!  The next day I "thought" that I couldn't move BUT little did I know.....It was the day after that I KNEW I was going to die!!!  I had to ROLL out of bed!!  It was INSANE!!!!!  ;0

K.....forward to the next week!!  My "friend" has to go get her hair done and I am left to endure the "torture" all by myself!!  THIS is just a glimpse of what we have been going through...
100 situps
100 pushups
100 squats
40 throw the 50lb bag
40 fall down, do a push up and and then jump back up

(sorry, I don't know the terminology)
AND as if that wasn't enough we had to then do
20 pushups...1 squat
19 pushups....2 squat
18 push ups.....3 squats
17 pushups....4 squats

ect, ect, ect,.......

SOOOOO, if you see me walking a little strange...DON'T SAY A WORD!!!!!!! ;)

Fair Time

Pin It
 I LOVE the fair!!  I know some people complain about it and just really hate having to take their kids but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!  I love everything about it from the "carnies" to the food!!  I love eating everything that I know is HORRIBLE for me but TASTES SOOOOOOOO GOOD!  I LIVE to eat there!!  I love corn dogs, cotton candy, nachos, caramel apples, and then top it off with an ice cold lemonade!!

THEN there are the rides!!  Now I can not say that I am as enthusiastic about them as I used to be but it is LOADS of fun to watch Nathaniel nearly poop his pants everytime he gets on one!!   MC is our little DARE DEVIL!  She road the Tower of Terror at Disney at the age of 4!  Nathaniel is an entirely different child!!  He is a Momma's baby and doesn't like anything that is out of his comfort zone!!  MC RUNS as fast as she can to get on the scariest ride and Nathaniel is holding my hand screaming " I don't want too" but sissy wins and he walks up and gets on like a trooper!!  He then starts off in an upright position and 10 seconds into the ride he is laying down with his head in his sister's lap!!!!!  Now I know some of you are thinking..."Why are you torturing him like that??"  Well, here is the funny soon as the ride is over he POPS UP grinning and runs out saying "THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!" LOL
I have NO IDEA where he gets that statement!!  ;)
So if you get a chance, run your kids out to your local fair!!  It's a lot of fun and this age doesn't last very long!!! 


But what and AWESOME SISSY!!!!

And he is MISSING AGAIN!!!  ;)

Bunco Recipes!

Pin It

Had a BLAST last night with my Bunco gang!!  We had some new faces last night and they were all really fun!  I tried two new recipes and they received RAVE reviews so I have posted the recipes under "NUMMY'S"

I have to give credit to a high school friend of mine Dana Anthony Marcom!!  She told me about this EASY PEASY recipe for dessert and I knew I had to give it a try!  I sent her a message (while she is in Florida at Disney World) and told her that I may need to contact her when I got ready to make them!!  She said "SURE!"  I told her my luck would be that she would be FALLING DOWN THE TOWER OF TERROR WHEN I CALL!!!!!!! ;)

Luckily for me she wasn't!!!!!!!!  ;)

Pin It Ok...I have been called DRAMATIC but I like to look at it as F...U....N!!!  ;)  Tonight is Bunco at the Hallmark house!!  I am just curious if I am the ONLY INSANE freak that starts freakishly cleaning everything in my house!  Now let's just think abut this for a minute.......(giving you time to think!) When you go to someone's house do you look at EVERYTHING in the house from the floors to the ceilings???  I DON'T but just as soon as I am having people over I go into PANIC, DRAMA MODE!!!!  I start freaking out on the whole family to start cleaning everything!!!!!! Now don't get me wrong, my house is ALWAYS tidied up BUT I start cleaning everything from light fixtures to baseboards!!!  WHAT?????? you say!! I KNOW but I can't help myself!!  What's sad is that I KNOW that all of the ladies will leave my house tonight and will have NEVER even noticed all the things that I am cleaning!!!  It really is a SICKNESS!!!  I need to come up with a new syndrome and maybe be famous when all of these MOM's realize that they have my CLEANING SYNDROME!!!!!
Well I have to get back to the baseboards!!!  Hope that you guys have a FANTABULOUS evening!!!
OH...I am making 2 new recipes tonight!  I will share tomorrow!!!!  ;)
