I'm sure she is a lovely lady and all but that sweater choice would make me second guess any advice she had to offer.

To complete the redo I had to take down the red curtains. The "new" curtains are mistreatments. $5.99 pillow cases from another favorite store- Target (read that with the fancy accent). The rods were

I know the "pros" like Nester and Vintage are still kicking but where are the rest of you? It's too quiet...I see you reading but no one is talking back to me anymore...Hello? Hellllloooo? Is this thing on?

Another week has passed. As I type,
1 1/2 lbs shrimp (peeled, deveined- I use frozen)
1/2 c unsalted butter (or you could substitute extra virgin olive oil)
1/4 c minced fresh parsley (or 2T dried)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
2T lemon juice
2T chicken brother
1/2 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1/2 c shredded parmesan cheese
Then my additions to the recipe...
1 bag of fresh spinach
small container of cherry or grape tomatoes (cut in half)
Cook noodles as directed. In a large skillet saute shrimp in the butter for 4 minutes. Add parsley, garlic, lemon juice, broth, salt, & pepper.
Add the spinach handfuls at a time so it can wilt. Add the tomatoes at the end. Stir a bit more until the tomatoes look right. (I don't know...that's just the kind of cook I am...eyeball it.)
Drain the noodles and put them in a large bowl. Pour the shrimp mixture over them. Mix with 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese.
Voila. Mrs. Brown's yummy spinach fettuccine- with a summer twist.

Yes, that would be chocolate shavings on top of peanut butter icing on top of chocolate cake with more peanut butter icing in the center. Of course if you are some alien being and don't find the combo of chocolate and peanut butter to be the end all of all snacks. There are many more options. Like this runner up for me...
Another option- the Butterfinger cupcake.
Moving to EPCOT...here is our very own snack try from Sunshine Seasons (along with Brad's counter service meal).
This was butterfinger cheesecake, strawberry shortcake, and chocolate cake.
Now, you understand why snack research is essential. Plan wisely and you can eat your way through the World. (for free!!!)
I beg of you- for the love of all things Disney- do not waste a snack credit on Dr.Pepper!

Summer is the time I catch up on daytime television. I mostly stick to Discovery Health and TLC with a bit of The Travel Channel thrown in for good measure. I don't watch any of the wedding shows...Rock the Receptions, Say Yes to the Dress, and all that mess does not interest me. I do however watch every episode I can of Birth Day, A Baby Story, Deliver Me, and Adoption Stories. Will I ever "outgrow" this stage? I hope not.
Let me just say if you can watch an episode of Adoption Stories without crying- check your pulse. That one gets me every time.
Those docs on Deliver Me are way to intervention happy but I am still oh so jealous of them. Who wouldn't want to be an OB with two of your best friends?!
A Baby Story is better than it used to be. They are adding more baby and less story. I like that. For me, it's all about the birth. I don't care how you met or what your nursery is going to look like. Just tell me about the birth. (I am pretty good at predicting outcomes after the first 5 minutes of the show by the way.)
Next week Discovery Health is premiering NICU during their Baby Week. I soooo can't wait for this one.
Does it ever occur to anyone else that I am really in the wrong profession?

There you have it. Totally random post- I know. But once you get one, you'll thank me!
