Girls Weekend...

I'm going to be playing catch-up for a few posts....so bare with me!

Well the girls have come and gone....and i'm STILL feeling the aftermath of it!! WOW!! What an amazingly ridiculous weekend, JUST WHAT THE DR. ORDERED!!!!
Mel and Sav got in Thursday night. My amazing husband picked them up at the airport with a bottle of champagne and a 6 pack of beer....isn't he the best!
Now for the weekend in pitcures....

Me and my beautiful friends at Jing Thursday night.

Budda's Belly....a drink that comes with a flower...you eat it, mouth goes numb....weirdness follows.

We decided after dinner we needed to try out Four Loco's.... we later find out why they are banned.

Friday night, heading downtown for the Alumni Pre-Party...the girls LOVED the lightrail :)

We Love us Some Willie!!

And Willie loves us too!!!

Willie loved us so much he force fed us our beers.....twice.

Yay!!! Can't you tell i'm pumped for this neon blue shot!!

Being force fed beer + Blue Shots = Not being able to sit up on the light rail!

Not to self....Four Loco's makes your balance HORRIBLE! I could NOT do an "S" to save my life!

I love me some Savannah!!

The girls had NEVER shotgunned a beer...how in the world we've been friends this long i have no idea.

Some Senior pictures in the tree...

A bottle of champagne in the car, a bloody mary, and some more beer.....and THIS is what the night ends like :)

AMAZE-BALLS.... that's all i have to say about that weekend!!!!

P.S. Do you know what a Wenis is???

Jibber Jabber....

These two hotties are headed my way TOMORROW!!!!

I sure hope she brings that tutu....it'll be a hit at the tailgate :)
We have a weekend of sushi, drinks, shopping, drinks, tailgating, drinks, football, drinks, and snuggling planned!!!! Ohhhhh how i need some girl time!!
We've been busy....and we'll continue to be busy till after Christmas it seems!!
i went home last weekend to help my mom clean out her basement....that lady has A LOT of stuff!!! I think my parents are having a midlife crisis. They have redone their whole upstairs (new floors, new furniture, new kitchen appliances, new toilets, and they even took off the popcorn ceilings!!) Now mom's focusing on the basement....which holds a LOT of stuff. It'll be weird to come home for Christmas...it'll be a whole new house!! THEN they up and bought a new fancy car yesterday...... midlife crisis i'm telling you!! (or their bored....either way!!)
This weekend my peeps are here....
Next week is Thanksgiving....we're headed to Wakeeny to hang with the McGuires.... and hopefully we'll be able to get some skiing in on Saturday!
Week after that we have an appointment with a specialist!!!!!! and then i'm headed to CHICAGO!!!!!!!! Bach. party in the windy city...don't mind if i do!
Week after that is my Birthday.... i'll start excepting gifts any time :) No big plans as of yet... but i'm sure we'll figure something out!
After that it's Christmas..... geesh.....
And on top of all that.....i think we're going to start SERIOUSLY looking for jobs in Kansas. Either that or i'm going to need all my friends and family to start looking for jobs out here. I'm cool with either. Sooooooo if any of you Kansans know of any sweet jobs....let us know.
And....I think trav's going to go back to school....online....for his masters. Exciting stuff!!! I think i may go back as well....online....not for my masters. I've mentioned before that i would LOVE to teach...sooooo i think i'll start taking classes two or so at a time to get the ball rolling. Maybe by the time i'm done, they'll be hiring teachers again :) I just feel like i need some direction....a career....something!!!
Hmmmm well i suppose i've rambled on enough....

Why i HATE renting....

I feel as though i've touched on this topic once before....but i'm doing it again.
Guess what the temp. it is in our house right now.....go on....guess.....i'll wait.

it's 55 freaking degrees in there!!!
I like to be cold, i like to snuggle up in a blanket wearing sweat pants and a hoodie....but 55 degrees is NOT ok. I think i'm going to have to sleep in my ski gear.
We called the rental company last tuesday to let them know the heat wasn't working....that was almost a week ago. Trav got it to come on a few times....just long enough to heat the house for the night, but then it'd go off again. Great. And that was BEFORE it started snowing here!
So yesterday Trav woke up (i was out of town) and it smelled like rotten eggs.... called the gas company..... we have a bad boiler....and a leak. Great.
Called the rental company again today...sending someone....trav goes home and waits for them...an hour and a half goes by....a furnace company comes. we don't have a furnace. Great.
Called the rental company AGAIN....they'll send a boiler company....trav will have to wait some more. Great.
I officially do NOT want to rent again. EVER

Wanna know what sucks???

When this is what your iphone looks like!

Yep....i dropped it....and apparently i dropped it just right....cause this is now what my phone screen looks like. Insurance does NOT cover this. I can get a new screen for $150. Or wait till i'm elligible for an upgrade and get the same phone for $100, or upgrade to the I4 for $200. I'm thinking i'll for big and get the I4.....we did after all just get a sweet check in the mail for a belated wedding present (Um...we've been married for over a year....better late than never i guess!). And the good news is i'm elligible for my upgrade TOMORROW.....perfect timing :)

Cowboy up!!

Ok...so i was going to try and be all crafty....i took pictures of every step of the recipe...finished product and the happy hubby eating the dip....BUT for some damn reason every time i try and put the pics in on our home computer explorer shuts down.... Sooooo no craftyness from me today, instead....generic pics off the internet!! (I promise you Jamie that the recipe will still be just as amazing!)

So here we go..... Cowboy Salsa!

1. Black Beans
2 cans, we usually drain and rinse one, just drain the other (the juice is helpful! plus tasty!)

2. Corn
1 can, drained.

3. Rotel
1 can, we usually get the Hot, but any of them will do!!

PS, don't you dare drain this!

4. Avacado
2 of these bad boys, chopped up!

5. Japs.
You can do fresh (they're hotter!) or the canned ones! Amount really just depends on how pick of a pansy you are! We like the heat, so if we do fresh we do about 4 (WITH the seeds!)

6. Onion
1/2 of one, chopped!! You can do red, white, yellow....whichever one you like best!
7. Red Pepper
Again, what's your flavor??? We've done Red, green and yellow before and to be honest i'm not real sure which is my fav in the dip, it's just whatever we have on hand!

8. Cilantro
Ok....there seems to be a theme with this recipe....basically that i don't keep measurements! I'd say we usually use about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of cilantro (chopped). If your a HUGE cilantro fan then you just go right ahead and use the whole dang bushel!

9. Lime juice
We don't do fresh....we're lame like that. we have the little squeezer deal, and i usually put about 2 tablespoons in there...

10. Italian dressing
Again...2 tablespoons should do the trick. You don't want there to be A LOT of juice in there. If you think you want more, i'd recommend waiting till you've let the dip set over night. Then see if you still want more!

Stir it all up....let it mingle in there for a bit.....then scarf it down with some chips!! YUMM-O!

P.S.This recipe really can be tweaked any way you want....we originally started out with a REAL recipe and have changed it several ways as we go! Let me know what you think!
