Yesterday was certainly an interesting day, especially last night! You could say that forces were working against me with dinner last night, or maybe I’m just really blonde. Both could be easily argued. TJ and I woke up much later than I had intended, but I’m going to choose to blame that on the fact that I was up until almost 3am working on my 1st blog entry… So even though we woke up late, the day wasn’t too bad, well that is when you compare it to the evening, but I’ll get to that here very soon!
We had to go to Sam’s Club and to one of those recycling things where you can take your bags and bags of soda cans that you’ve been saving on the side of the house since before Christmas (yeah, TJ did that… I don’t drink soda so you can’t blame it on me!). We thought we’d try the one where you can put each can individually into the machine. Carrie said you get more money that way. Apparently she also must have told a lot of other people because we weren’t the only ones there sadly. So after waiting and then being told that one of the machines was totally full and would be closed for the rest of the day, we said pooie on it and went to Sam’s Club.
Is it just me, or does Sam’s Club (and Costco for that matter) sell way too many yummy things? I swear all we intended on getting was kitty litter, one of those atomic clocks that reads the temp outside and inside, and a box of pizza rolls. Yes, they’re greasy, but I don’t care. They are amazing! But after what ended up being almost an hour and way too much money later (sorry Dad!) we were on our way home to unload the lovely pork chops, baby back ribs, frozen pizza, pizza rolls (yes I really did need both, I swear!), quesadillas, etc.
After we unloaded everything, we were off to the other recycling place that only does it by the pound. Unfortunately for us, it’s closed on Mondays. But it’s okay, because I had forgotten a very important part of my recipe for that night! I was going to make Easy Chicken Pot Pies from my new recipe book I ordered from my sister in AZ (she sells Pampered Chef, please visit her if you need awesome cooking stuff!). The item in question was the frozen puff pastry sheets. You can’t very well have a chicken pot pie without a crust! So we went in, picked that up along with some E.L. Fudge cookies (they were on sale, and they are so addicting. I’ve been eating those since I was a kid! Yes, not that long ago… I know… lol) and a bag of gummy worms.
Then we finally got home and I was able to get to work on my 2nd blog entry! Of course, that’s when TJ casually reminded me that I had also needed to buy more chicken stock at the grocery store. I mean, really? You remind me now? *sigh* So he ran back out to the store while I was typing (and then had a lovely conversation with a good friend! <3 those!). When he got back home he snuck into the loft with something behind is back. Turned out it was these gorgeous roses!! Yesterday was our anniversary so he wanted to surprise me. Not a major milestone anniversary, just our 3 year and 4 month, but hey, little milestones count in my eyes too.
- I love red roses! <3
After my dad called and said he was about 45 minutes from home I went to go get dinner started since the pot pie takes about an hour in the oven. So as I am cutting chicken into pieces I ask TJ to clean up the dishes in the sink so the kitchen wasn’t such a sty. He said he’d love to but he had something blocking him on the couch. This is what I found, Picasso the orange kitty and Sophie the dog helping him watch Cops and inadvertently stopping him from cleaning the dishes Although Picasso did get moved right after I took this picture lol
- What a bunch of lazy butts!
