Posts Tagged ‘birthday party’

I really have no excuse for not blogging for ages. I really want to get back into it, pretty sure I lost all my blogger-reader-friends. Come Baaaaaaaaack 🙂

Last year about this time, I was making a list of all my favorite fall things but all the way from Japan. Now, a year later, I am still grateful for all things fall, but I’ve got a few to add to my Midwest list for 2010.

1. Fall T.V.: I wish I was kidding. I wish my list was shorter (I don’t really). I wish Tivo wasn’t invented.

  • Ellen. Daily
  • Chelsea Lately
  • Tosh.O
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Private Practice
  • HIMYM
  • House
  • Biggest Loser
  • Dancing with the Stars
  • Modern Family
  • Glee
  • Law & Order SVU
  • The Office
  • Gossip Girl

Am I forgetting one? This list is embarrassing, so I hope not.

2. Going to see WICKED!

3. 100 years of Johnnie Football/Homecoming/Tommie-Johnnie all in one day.

4. Family visiting from out of state, especially the cousins who can’t make it every year!

5. Celebrating Birthdays

  • Mom
  • Auntie Maureen
  • GRANDMA’S 90th FREAKIN’ BIRTHDAY last weekend~

Grandma with the kids and grandkids + spouses. We are a good lookin’ bunch if I do say so myself!

WHAT.A.SUCCESS.

5. Last but not least, kitchen experiments.

Have you ever heard of Larabars? They’re pricy. I made my own. Today’s trial run was Reese’s Pecan impression of a Larabar:

  • 2 cups of pitted dates
  • 3/4 cup of pecans
  • 2 Tbs all natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • sprinkle of salt

Throw it all in the food processor + Glee in the background.

Walla (like a magician would say. Is that how you spell it?)

Don’t knock it till you try it, but YUMMY!

Well since we all know I have 18 hours of Tivo to catch up on, I gotta get back to that, plus ice my legs after a fall run around the lakes (that’s #6 on my list btw.)

Night!
