As last week neared it’s end, several things happened: 1) I had a successful (still waiting to hear back) interview 2) The realization hit that Insanity is molding me into a hotter version of myself 3) It had been a week or 2 since Mike and I had gone out with our friends So…because of […]

Last week was busy. As Wednesday neared, I was getting all kinds of anxious prepared for my interview, and time was slipping away from me. So Wednesday, while the Curry in the Crock Pot simmered away and filled the house with its essence, I also made Thursdays’ dinner ahead of time and stuck it in the […]

Alright, so I’ve been craving some spicy, hearty food this week. So I contacted the curry goddess Evelyn and asked if she would share her recipe with me. She gave me loose guidelines, and I went for it. Mine turned out a bit different from hers. Not better or worse, just different. But still very […]

Before I get to the important stuff (aka the food), has anyone out there ever gotten a black “henna” tattoo? Either home or abroad?? Let me tell you…if […]

Sunday night Mike and I decided to out to eat. Being the cheap-os that we are we looked at what we had coupons for. Black Angus, Campfire Feast for 2…$12 off?? Winner! Also, neither of us had been there in years, so it seemed like a good choice. And it turns out, the food has, […]
