If you happen to have ~43 minutes to spare, check this out!

Psych - She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

I love Psych! I think it is such a funny, clever, sarcastic show. This is the newest episode opened on MSN (which is the only way I can watch it, being without cable and all) and it is MY FAVORITE to date. Anyways just had to share it. Oh, and Chelsea, I wished I could have been watching it with you. I know it would have made it even funnier!!!

Not yet

I'm busy with other stuff. Maybe someday I'll post Christmas pictures. But that day is definitely not today. I've started yet another blog. So far I have 6 that I contribute to. 6? Well, when
Shanna convinced me to start a blog, I didn't think I'd become one of these people! ;) My new blog address is . It is my new food blog! I recently joined a group of baking bloggers, known as "Daring Bakers". The most recent count I heard was 1000 members. I'd explain it, but I just got done explaining it on my other blog. Wanna know more? Go check it out. Please, don't make me say it all again!

I'll leave everyone with 2 funny Cameron stories.

#1) Tyler was looking at Cameron. Cameron: "What are you looking at?" Tyler: 'I'm just looking at how handsome you are.' Cameron: "No you're not. You're looking at how cool & awesome I am..."

#2) Cameron asks me... "Do you know what my friend Cache's name is?" Not knowing how to respond to this, I say: 'No, I don't Cameron. What is it?' He throws up his hands with a look of bewilderment and monotonously says "It's Cache..."

Would rather have shards of glass in my eye...

I just got off the phone with THE. MOST. ANNOYING. guy ever! I had to call and pay a bill over the phone. As much as I love Andy Bernard, he is a fictional character and I only have to see him for 30 minutes a week. ;) But if I had to deal with him, I'd probably want to strangle him. This guy I talked to was a mix between Andy Bernard, and that REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY annoying boy in school. This guy did it all. The repeating himself (like 3 times in a row), making weird noises and sound effects to fill in the small silences. Man, that really bugged me! Okay, so I'm a jerk. Sue me?

One of my favorite foods is? BRRRRRRRRRRRR (that's a drum-roll) Hot dogs! I love hot dogs. And I'm so excited that we're having them for dinner tonight! I have seriously spent SO much time in the kitchen these last 3 weeks, it's kinda pathetic! This is just some of what I've made in said time:

Crockpot Italian Beef (Sandwiches)

Cafe Rio Pork with Cilantro Rice

Marie Callenders Lemon Cream Cheese Pie

~400 truffles

Coconut Chicken Curry

Chicken Tikka Masala

Peanut Butter Cups

Pumpkin Roll


Trifle bites (Can I just tell you my picture of this was WAY better?! Hahaha But my sister still hasn't sent it to me!)

Pumpkin Apple-spice muffins (Sooo good!)

Blitz Bread

Pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon syrup

Italian's Shepherds pie (Ahh... Good 'ol Rachael Ray!)

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

(BTW, A great big THANKS to Shanna for tips with my food pictures!)

Okay, so who cares?! ME! These were ALL brand new recipes. I've been making something 'new' just about every day. I'm really proud of myself and have been happy with almost everything I made. Seriously, check out the links and if something looks good to you, MAKE IT because almost all of these tasted soooo yummy! My point is, I'm excited to eat something that (to me) is delicous and NO MESS! Thank heavens for hot dogs. ;)

Happy Birthday, Mr. President

Wow, this is ME. (In good ways, and in bad) Except the last paragraph, about the parenting style. Really, none of those fit. But the rest? Holy cow.

Oh, it's awkward. So very awkward...

Is anyone else absolutely hating this season of "The Office"? Grrrr! There's 'Michael Scott' awkward, and then the level that was just on the last episode. I'm so bugged about it! I love the show, but this season has been so off. How dare they all pretend to be Michael's friend like that. UGH! They (especially Jim) have always had more respect for him than that. Not to stoop to junior high crap to get their way. UGH! Okay, I know no one cares, but I had to get that out!!!

I'm in love...


Seriously, this stuff is amazing! I hate ironing. I've ALWAYS hated ironing. I know no one likes it (unless you're a sick, twisted freak) but I REALLY REALLY hate it. I'm TERRIBLE at it. I end up making MORE wrinkles than I started out with. And the people that tell me they never iron? I just don't understand. My laundry loads must be too big, because even if I pull the clothes out directly from the dryer, they're still not smooth enough for my liking. Now, I only iron pants (since they still look the very best if they're ironed) and... that's it! Just pants! I use this spray at least every other day. Tyler uses it all the time for his scrubs and t-shirts. I use it on the kids' clothes. My shirts. My skirts. Check out this demonstration. I know the video is cheesy, but it shows you just how much time you can be saving. It is a bit pricey, but hey: time is money, right?
