In Honor of

Top Ramen's birthday earlier this week, Denis felt the need to recreate what he calls "Eggy Ramen". Oh my, I didn't think I would really be eating Top Ramen on a Friday night in my 30's. The Hus never ceases to amaze!
So for dinner Denis asked for Top Ramen (Chicken flavor), with egg, soy sauce and pepper. What??? Are you kidding me?
I have to admit I tried his creation and I would love to say it tasted like stale, salty garbage ... but I can't. I'm still shaking my head in embarrassment as I say, it tasted pretty damn good. A little extra protein with the eggs and of course a little extra sodium with the soy sauce, Top Ramen a well-rounded dinner makes.
So you've noticed that I didn't posted a picture of our creation, well I couldn't handle posting a picture that included every item being a beige-ish color. This one should stick with us for awhile. We desperately need help!

Halloween came early to San Marcos

So I've taken some crap from a few of you about decorating for Halloween already. Maybe the pics will make you understand why. I do love spiders ... not live ones in my house ... but cute fake ones. No bloody Halloween for us!

Maybe this year I will really dress Jake up like a ghost. I'll be sure to have a hole for his big nose!

This one was most definitely made with love from my mom. She is so freakin' creative and crafty.

Treadmills SUCK

This afternoon I drug myself to the gym to get in a 30 minute run to help me reach my 1/2 marathon goal in October.

So I was running, doing pretty good, minding my own business when some guy got on the treadmill next to me. Within seconds I could tell/smell that he was an over cologne-er. It was nasty! I couldn't breath, I was getting pissed off, I wanted to tell him to go take a freakin' shower BEFORE he worked out. ANNOYING!

Well since I was so pissed off my run went by fast. Anything to make a run go by fast on a treadmill is okay by me ... but not stinky cologned men.

A Week Has Gone By ...

and I haven't posted anything, not even one lousy post. What kind of a blogger am I? Well, my mom was in town this week and we had SO. MUCH. FUN.

I am so lucky to have such an awesome mom. We lunched with some cousins, had fish & chips by the beach, curled up and watched the Olympics at night and my fav ... we decorated my house for HALLOWEEN. Yes I said it, we shopped and decorated for Halloween. Keep your eyes peeled for pics of the new Halloween set up. It looks pretty damn cute if I do say so myself!

I wish my mom lived closer so we could do things like this more often.

The Trumpet Guy

Yesterday Denis went to the track as a work function .... uh let me see if this legit? Turf Club access which equals free food, free alcohol and a chance to see the trumpeter. The hus has found his dream job. No, not as the replacement trumpeter!

Since the hus doesn't bet he thought his time would be well spent sending me cell phone pics of his day. Gotta love him, gotta love him. I am a lucky girl!

He was so excited about the guy below. His email to me said something like "post this on the blog"! I find it funny that Denis takes ownership of the blog, but doesn't ever contribute.

We aren't in California anymore Toto!

This morning I flew into Denver for a presentation and of course had to make a bee-line to the bathroom when I got off the plane. As I walked into the bathroom I noticed a sign that said "Tornado Secure Are"! WHAT??? Are you kidding me? If there is a tornado I am supposed to run for the bathroom.

Apparently those in Denver believe we should segregated the sexes during a tornado! I wished at that moment that I would have had a camera.

Oh the joys of traveling!
