I've Neglected You Again, Internet

Look who beautiful goddaughter Jamie Cakes met at Carsons the other day!  Justin Bieber.  They seemed to get along really well, but my recollection might be slightly tainted by my painkiller-addled brain.

Let's see.  The big house purchase is going as scheduled.  Fingers crossed I will be moving out of my parents' house in seven weeks.  As George Michael would say, "Freedom!"

My sister Kerry surprised the holy heck out of me by purchasing me a couch.  I was completely blown away by this and didn't even know how to thank her.  The next day, that feeling had worn off a little and I asked her to move.  "Uh uh uh, you can't be nasty after I made it rain last night."

She has a way with words.

Cooper looks stoned in this picture.  If he starts hacky-sacking and playing Ultimate Frisbee, I am going to worry about him.

I've been moving much better, barely limping when I walk.  This week I was even cleared to DRIVE!!!  I had one glorious day behind the wheel and then got it ripped away.  I've been in some major pain and the surgeon has decided I should take it easy for a week with no rehab.  I tried to make me go to rehab, they said no, no, no.  (Too soon?)

Hopefully this is just a bump in the road and it'll clear up soon.  I really feel like I've been making great strides.

I've been cooking a lot lately too!  Check these out.

The top is Vegan Sourdough Bread Lasagna and the bottom one is Hasselback potatoes.  They look really pretty and delicious, don't they?  Problem: they weren't.  You can't win them all.

I am also addicted to Pinterest and if you want an invite, just ask me.

I found this on Pinterest this morning and loved it.


  1. Does Cooper have an iPhone yet? Lol!
    The internets missed you :)

  2. You crack me up!
    Also? I used to make those potatoes ALL THE TIME when Jim and I first got married except never with olive oil and WITH a crapload more butter than that recipe you linked to recommends. I'm pretty sure we sprinkled cheese on them, too. Maybe we left out the potatoes. I don't know, but they were really good. :)

  3. I think more butter might have helped. They sure were pretty! I bet cheese, sour cream and bacon would make them even better!

  4. I am shocked that he hasn't demanded one yet. I think he is feeling angst-ridden since he is the world's most photographed dog. His privacy went right out the window the day he moved in with me.
