Saturday 6

1. How often do you visit a coffee shop? If you do, do you drink coffee there, or just pick it up to go? I don't get to go as often as I like since we now live in the middle of nowhere. I probably go once every other week when we are at the airforce base shopping. And I always take it to wander around the stores with.

2. What is the latest time of day you can drink regular coffee (or tea) without messing up your sleep? I can drink it anytime.....for me, when it comes to bedtime nothing keeps me from falling asleep.

3. What is the highest number of cups of coffee (or tea) you’ve had in a single day? I had a couple of pots...it was a bad day, haha

4. Take the quiz: What flavor of latte are you?

You Are a Pumpkin Latte

You are always up for a celebration. You are a very festive person.

You look forward to every holiday, and you are nostalgic for good times after they're over.

You appreciate the small things that make life special. You love little treats.

You often look at the world with childlike wonder. There's so much to enjoy!

5. Consider the highest price you’ve ever paid for a cup of coffee and the highest price you’ve paid for a gallon of gas: which of the two items was more expensive? Sadly, I think it was coffee! But that's my bodies fuel, so it's as important as gas :)

6. What is your favorite holiday-flavored coffee?
I don't like Holiday coffee, it always tends to have too much cinnamon in it for my taste.


once bitten twice shy

Here is a bite that I got yesterday on my arm...Gross, isn't it? I was hoping it would look a little better today, but it looks worse!

What horrible little creature would do such a thing you ask?

Yes, that would be my son Brayden! He has bitten me 3 times now...this one being the worst. I don't know what to do...the sad part is, I think he is doing it out of affection, cause that's how he "kisses" his stuffed monkey. Either that or he is practicing for the sequel to Twilight!

Thursday Thunks...and an evil Bella!

1. Do you like potatoes? What kind?Yes....I like garlic mashed potatoes, baked potatoes,potato chips, shredded potatoes...I could go on.
2. If you were dressed up in a fish costume and you went underwater and a shark saw you, what would you do? YIKES! First off, I wouldn't be in the water where there is a potential for sharks...but to answer the question, I would take off the costume, DUH, and try to punch it in the nose if he tried to eat me!
3. Does Jello make you happy? jello shots, YES
4. If you could have any animal, exotic, extinct or other type, what would it be? I have thought about this since I was little, I want a Panda!

10. When I say "Moo I'm a duck" do you think of a cow or a duck? I think of a cow
11. If you had the chance, would you go to the very bottom of the ocean? No, I think I like the mystery of the ocean, I like to think the bottom is where the mermaids live and I don't want to be disappointed!
12. Would you rather be spiderman or batman? The Dark Knight baby!
13. Would you rather be in a hurricane or a tornado? hurricane, definitely , I've been through many of those.

13 is bad luck...

14. Do you like pumpkin pie? Do you cheat and buy a premade one or do you make it from scratch? Heck, do you even make pumpkin pie at all? I love pumpkin pie, I don't care if it's homemade, store bought, in ice cream, whatever...it's DELICIOUS! I have never made one from scratch myself.

Now onto my evil little Bella...she is not evil so much as she loves to give us the evil eye lately... it's really creepy when you catch her doing it behind your back too! I managed to get a pic of her doing it...this is not as evil as she usually does it, but you get the idea:

I think it's all in the eyebrows...I'll try to catch her in full evil eye mode next time!

Martabak keju

So, I have a new guilty pleasure...and it involves pancakes and cheese! OMG, can you imagine the calories? I don't even want to know! My husband ordered some Indonesian food from a place in Maryland, we just got two big packages yesterday. The "cheese pancake" is actually called Martabak keju , and it's considered to be a crepe. I don't know any crepes that look quite like that! They also have one called Martabak Manis, which my husband ordered for himself, it's filled with CHOCOLATE instead of the cheese. No way am I even touching that one, i'd gain 20lbs just going near it!

The place is called Indonesian Food Mart, here is the link: http://indonesianfoodmart.com
They have a lot of other great stuff....and he ordered some things I haven't even looked at yet, but I'm sure I will be eating them....and posting about them soon O(≧∇≦)O !!!


Wednesday Media Mix

Wednesday Media Mix, 11.19.08

Listen: Name an album that makes you feel warm and fuzzy.

"Till the Sun Turns Black" by Ray Lamontagne

Watch: Is there a movie you disliked at first, but then your mind was opened to it? If so, please explain.

I would have to say Rush Hour 1 & 2...I had never really gotten into them until my husband bought Rush Hour 3, and I thought it was funny.So he made me re-watch 1 & 2, and I realized that they were pretty hilarious. I think I just half assed watched them before because I wasn't open to "guy" movies at that time. Anywho...when Chris Tucker sings, it cracks me up. Here is my favorite moment:

Read: Same for books or stories: anything you didn’t like when you first read it, but eventually had a different perspective? Catcher in the Rye...I read it in school but I didn't appreciate it until I read it again a couple of years ago.



We got the kids some new pj's this weekend, and I couldn't be more excited. We have been struggling with them keeping warm enough at night since they love to take off their socks & they hate to keep a blanket on themselves. The footie pajamas we had put them in previously would over heat them, so we didn't know what to do. We finally found some fleece footies that were PERFECT, and perfectly priced too! We got the Carters pj's at Sam's club for under $7.00 each {we ended up getting4} and they had the most adorable prints , the kids have slept all warm and snuggly soft since :)

Thanks again Sam's Club, you are awesome!
