Another Update

Hi again!

Can you believe I am posting before it has actually been a month?

Let's see where did we leave off......I think we are up to November.

Not a lot happened that month but the first weekend Adam and I had a sleepover with out nieces from Friday night until their parents picked them up on Sunday. Their mom and dad had a wedding in Idaho and  the girl's didn't really want to join them so their FAVORITE aunt and uncle volunteered to watch them for the weekend. So what did we do all weekend? We stayed up too late watching movies, ate lots of junk food, went to Megamind (super cute), played at the park, drew with chalk, played with hair, lots of hide and seek, watched more Hannah Montana then I think I have ever watched, goofy games and walks. Needless to say by the time they went home Sunday we were exhausted, I don't know how you parents with more than one kid do it everyday! We did miss them and our house seemed a little too quite so I think we may have to have a super fun sleepover again.
Here are some pictures from that weekend

A few weeks later we enjoyed Thanksgiving with my family this year. I don't have any pictures but we had a great dinner with my family. My parents cooked a lot and it was all delicious. I was in charge of pie and I always make too many but I LOVE to bake and can you really have too much pie? I made a Pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust, Chocolate cream with an Oreo crust, Banana Cream with a vanilla crust and they were all terrific if I do say so myself.

Adam and I were one of those crazy people who decided to get up at an unholy hour on Black Friday. We stayed the night at Adam's parents so we could hit the stores out in the city which are a little closer and there are more to choose from then at our house. We didn't get any killer deals but we did get a lot done that day! It was crazy but actually a pretty fun day.

That was November I think I have more pictures for December stay tuned, if any of you still read this blog. :-)

Big Ol' Update

Well Hello all of my fellow bloggers!!

It has been a while hasn't it? This is a loooong over due update, it will be kind of long but there are pictures :-)

The month of October..... I have no idea where the last two months went but I am surprised I remember anything about October.

The third Saturday of October Adam and I headed out for a day of fishing with my dad. It started bright and early in the morning, like 5 am! I know I know we are crazy but my dad and I have been going fishing together since I was in high school and I enjoy it so much, I am definitely a daddy's girl and I love the time we get to spend together on the lake. I like having Adam join us too and I don't think my dad minds either. We went to Strawberry reservoir because we had pretty good luck back in August so we thought we would try it again except this time we went ALL day. Unfortunately we did not catch a whole lot and we were out there for 12 hours!
Photobucket We caught quite a few of these guys but not enough to do anything with.

On the 29th of  October we threw a little Murder Mystery dinner party. It was a blast and I think everyone had a good time. We were guests at the Annonville Manor: "The Anonville Manor closed for business years ago due to increasing rumors of eerie hauntings by ill-mannered spirits. A mysterious entrepreneur recently purchased the old hotel, renovated it, and announced that the Manor was free of ghosts and had been restored to the pristine caliber of the good ole' days when the Manor was the focus of entertainment for everyone. The new owner, choosing to remain anonymous, invited a random group of townspeople to a special pre-grand opening dinner party in the Majestic Ballroom of the hotel.To everyone's horror, a dead body that had been murdered in another room of the hotel was delivered to the ballroom! The guests rallied together in an intense investigation to figure out whodunit, the location of the crime, the motive, and murder weapon!"

The party was a blast with good food and great friends!

The next day we had a rainy but fun Halloween. We watched movies and had pizza and lots and lots of halloween candy! We didn't have many trick or treaters because of the weather so someone had to eat all of that candy. :)

That is October......someday I will update on November.

Thursday, October 7, 2010


In regards to my last post let's just say it was a Fail, I don't want to talk about it :)
Moving forward I think I will stop with the goals because obviously I am one of those who can't seem to follow through with them.

Some good news though it is my favorite month and time of year! I love love LOVE October and I love Autumn! October rocks my socks off because it is finally cooler, the leaves change, it's finally time to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies.... yummy and it is Halloween. Is it weird that I really like Halloween? I think I like it so much because it is the one holiday where you don't have to cook a big meal or by presents. I have great memories of Halloween my dad always decorated and he would go with us trick or treating, I think he secretly misses that part. I always had great costumes and lots and lots of candy. Halloween is bad for me as I get older though because every time I go to the store those colorful bags of little bit sized candy bars haunt me.
Seriously someone out there is pure evil to think hmmm let's make these things bite sized so that Jen will eat more than if she had a whole candybar. I think someone is out to get me. So what's a girl to do? I try so hard to walk pass the aisles and aisles of candy but they call my name and I think they are mocking me because I have no self control. They should mock me because as hard as I try I end up leaving with a bag of candy corn or something that I really don't need.
I also have not had any time to decorate for Halloween which makes me really sad because I love Halloween decorations. I dropped my box of decorations the other night and my Halloween bowls broke all over the cement floor, they made it through two moves and then crash! I might have shed a tear or two for them.

This weekend is my sister in laws wedding, I have mixed feelings about it.

If you haven't checked out my other blog I posted a little craft project to make your own recipe box. Some of you may have seen them around the blog world but if you haven't check it out. You can use those boxes for just about anything. I should have some more posts coming soon because I finally found that %!@# camera cord. Just click the button on the left to take you there.

I realized the other day that my walls in our house are so bare. It is kind of depressing it is just a whole lot of nothing. I am slowly working on decorating inside too but limited funds and time make it quite a project. My wonderful aunt did make us some beautiful drapes for our main floor I will have to post pictures because I just love them!

This is a really random post so to recap:

The person who decided to make candy bars bite sized is the spawn of Satan, my house is not scary, my other blog is slowly coming together and along with my house not being scary it is also pretty boring. :)

Thanks as always for reading!

I will try to add more pictures next time I post.

Stuck in a Rutt

Here we are it is already Wednesday, yeah for being half way through the week already!!
I am stuck in a rutt.....I hate that feeling.
What kind of rutt am I in? I am not sure it is kind of an all around rutt. I think I need a change. It seems like nothing is getting accomplished or at least the things I think need to be accomplished :) I set out with big plans and then when I don't follow through with those plans I get a little discouraged.

I think I have a plan, and I am going to share it with you so maybe that means I will actually finish it this time.
The Plan:

-Get out of bed on time during the week
    I have a tendency to hit snooze too much and then I don't leave myself enough time for breakfast and sometimes to put on my makeup
-Wear my makeup
this one sounds shallow but honestly when I feel like I spent some time on myself like wearing makeup or curling my hair I feel like I have a better outlook on the day
-Try some new recipes
   I have a pile of new recipes to try for dinner, breakfast or desserts and I have yet to pull one out and give it a whirl. I also have recipes in my head that I need to put onto paper and see how they turn out. Do you notice that when you eat something new and different life has a new spin on it? Is that just me? Oh well
- Craft, craft, craft!
    I have been working on some crafts and I have finished a bunch and yet my other blog is empty and so are the walls of my home. I want to get my butt in gear and get my walls and cupboards decorated and crafting is so relaxing to me.
-Post on my other blog
   This poor blog was a new thing for me and started out exciting but then it just dropped off. I really do have some fun things to share. I am just having a hard time getting it all organized and posted. But I hope that when I get my crazy ideas sorted out you will all come and read it and try some of the things for yourself.
- Write it All Down
  So I am a little crazy (actually REALLY crazy) and I am about to share with you why. My mind goes a mile a minute and usually when I am trying to get some sleep, so needless to say I have my boughts of Insomnia. When I am at work I am thinking about home and what needs to be accomplished there and when I am home I am thinking about everything else that I need/want to do. I am a list maker through and through except those lists and sticky notes disappear and then I forget what I wanted to do. I think this will be my biggest struggle to get out of a rutt, but I have a plan. I am going to try to get plan of some sort for each day of what I want to get accomplished and if I don't get it accomplished it's ok it can move to the next day. This way I can see that I have acctually done something instead of feeling stuck.

Ok so for now that is my plan I will let you know how it all plays out. I am going to try REALLY REALLY hard to get something accomplished. I will report back soon and maybe you will see some of my accomplishments on my other blog.

In other news, the Scrapbook Expo is this weekend and I am going, I will make it happen. It will help feed my addiction to scrapbook/craft items that I really don't need any more of.  If you love craft items and crafty things and you haven't been you really should go, they have great deals on items and lots of fun ideas. I have never taken a class there but I would really like to some year, if you want to join me let me know I would be happy to have you.

Other happenings, my sister in law is getting married next month and my other sister in law and I are a planning a shower. I have BIG ideas for refreshments for this shower and I am starting to wonder if maybe they are too big? Oh well go big or go home right? If it all works out my other blog should have some great stuff.

I guess that's it for now.

Thanks for reading that crazy, unorganized, loooong post.

Well first of all I am still here I have not fallen off the face of the Earth yet.

So what have I been up to? Nothing new really.
A couple of weeks ago Adam and I celebrated four years of wedded bliss! I can't believe how time has flown, it seems like just yesterday we were on a plane headed for our honeymoon in Florida. Oh how I wish I was in Florida right now, those were good times. I am so thankful for Adam and the man he is and has become, and come December it will be 10 years since our first date!! 10 Years!? There is no one I would have wanted to go on this journey with.

We took a week off from work, which was so needed. We went to the zoo, stayed at a hotel, ate lots of food we shouldn't have, caught up on sleep and saw lots of movies. If you haven't seen Inception yet you REALLY really need to. That week was just what we needed but like all good things it ended too soon.

There hasn't really been a whole late going on lately. I have been in kind of a slump that I am trying to pull myself out of, so to help I have been  doing some crafty things because, to me, it is so therapeutic. It seems to be helping plus I should have some new stuff to put on my craft/cooking blog so stay tuned and hopefully I will be able to keep that blog going better the second time around.

I guess that is all for now.

Thank you as always for reading.
