disney on ice

on Wednesday 11-21-12 I got to go to Disney on ice! I hadn't been since I was a kid, so I was very excited. I went with my mother, 2 sister in laws, niece  & nephew. 
I was also very happy I got to whip out the FUR!

I took a million pictures from DOI, here are a few.

boyfriend stuff

I seem to have caught a bit of a cold. Not good since I am going to Disney on Ice tonight with my niece and nephew. Plus, Thanksgiving is tomorrow.
 I wasn't feeling the best last night so my boyfriend bought me THIS!

He wins!

craft outing outfit

Sunday, Barb and I went to a craft show at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. So many neat things, wish I was more creative. We bought some REAL goodies. (pictures to come) 

christmas decor pt. 1

This weekend I got out all the Christmas things we had. I still have some at my parents house I need to pick up. 
My new Goodwill friend went on my little Good will "shelf"

I never realized exactly how many Christmas penguins I had. 


We have a wall in our apartment that has been taunting me to put something on it. So, Friday night before date night my girlfriend Kasey and I made a quick stop to Hobby Lobby, in our heels! I picked up a mirror and wall decoration for 50% off!
The "shelf" is actually from Goodwill, along with the vase. They match perfectly. I think I may spray paint the vase. Any suggestions? 

I had plans to turn the suitcase I found at Goodwill into a table. However, I couldn't bring myself to ruin it.
Shell I bought at Goodwill :)

sushi date

Friday, I had a hot date. My two best girls and I went out to dinner for sushi and drinks!

My co-worker bought all us girls in the office a treat when she came back from a show. She got my a "headband" with a sequin bow on it. She thought of Hello Kitty when buying it for me. She knows me so well.

homemade pizza

I am about a week behind on blogging. Sorry, let's start with last Tuesday 11-13. I made homemade pizza. My parents gave me a pound of pork sausage, it was the obvious thing to do with it. I did not make my own crust, even though I would like to try it sometime. We ate the whole thing!

christmas is coming early

Call me crazy, but I have already started decorating for Christmas! I cannot wait for the holidays and I can't wait any longer.

healthy veggies

I've been TRYING to start to live more healthy. I just want to know, how do people live like this... I love vegetables and fruit, but eating them for every meal is getting exhausting. I eat a whole bowl of veggies and feel stuffed, 15 minutes later I'm starving. Now who wants a cheeseburger!

birthday gift

My birthday was October 22 and my mother just gave me my birthday gift :)

She gave me my Norwex, which I knew about and excited about. Also, HELLO KITTY car decal, air freshner, and coffee mug. Let's get real, I'm a 25 year old who can't ever have enough Hello Kitty

chicky chicky tom tom

While I was at my parents Sunday running around with the kids. I left the boyfriend at home to watch the chicken I put in the oven. 

it was baked for about 5 hours on 275 degrees 

He was shredded, put on a hamburger bun, topped with bbq sauce and cole slaw. YUM!

sunday, not just lazy days

woke up Sunday morning and couldn't wait to sit on the couch all day and watch Glee. 
 put on my slippers, made some coffee, ate a healthy breakfast and relaxed.

shortly after I ate I got a text from my sister in law about going down to my parents for lunch. I got up, got dressed, stuck a full chicken in the oven for dinner, and off we were. 

I spent my day chasing kids and playing with babies. The best part about my Sunday, is that I wouldn't have it any other way!

homemade applesauce

Saturday, after running around all day, I came home and tried my hand in homemade applesauce. It was extremely easy and made our apartment smell delicious. 

I used 5 different apples, 8 total
sliced them (I left the peels on, and it makes the applesauce have a little crunch)
throw them in a crock pot
add a 3 inch cinnamon stick
4 tsp of brown sugar
lemon peel
1 tsp lemon juice
cook low for 5 hours. I used my meat masher to mash. stir every hour. 

of course remove the cinnamon sick when it is finished, lemon peel is ok to keep in.

store jumping saturday

Saturday, I ran around town all day. It was such an amazing fall day, here in Iowa!

mexican date night

Friday night the boy took me out to La Casa, which is a Mexican restaurant in our town. MARGARITAS! 

I also am wearing matching fingernail polish and lips. (coming to October favorites)
