Happy St. Patrick’s Day eve

Happy St. Patrick’s Day one day early.  MacGyver and I are not big drinkers and we’re not big crowd lovers either so we’ll probably stay at home and watch netflix.  I know, I know, we are wild and crazy.  Don’t hate.

On Wednesday night I made this lovely dessert for MacGyver,


And it was really good too.  It was my first attempt at making my own cheesecake and I’d say I nailed it.  Is it wrong that I’m thinking of having a piece at 10 in the morning?

It’s still a bit cold here and I’m loving it.  When I ran this morning it was 44 degrees.  I didn’t really have a run planned today, in fact, I was going to take the day off but I ran 3 little miles.  You can hardly blame me it was beautiful outside.

3 miles

It’s so beautiful that I’m thinking of playing hooky.  No wait, that’s a lie.  I’m not thinking about it at all.  😉  Happy Friday!

What are you’re plans for St. Patricks Day?

Are you running in a race?

It’s Friday, time for flu, flubs and fails.

MacGyver go a coupon for a free pizza for his birthday from Grimaldi’s.  In our opinion they have the best pizza around.  Unfortunately I’m not supposed to eat it because my body doesn’t do gluten but fortunately, they have salads.

Do you want to know how I feel when MacGyver is scarfing down pizza and I’m sitting there with a small salad?

salad hater

Nobody REALLY likes salad!

Exactly.  Just like that.

So, that’s why I ate pizza instead and took two benadryl tablets to help with the reaction and ward off the evil gluten backlash.  It wasn’t the best plan but it half worked.


Or maybe it didn’t but I’ll never know because I was in a coma by 8PM.

The good news is, MacGyver and I actually left the house without wearing masks.  Since almost everyone we know either has, or has had the flu, we are terrified of catching it.  The latest reports now say that you can catch it just from breathing the air near an infected person.  I don’t know how accurate that is but I do know that is perpetuates our level of fear to mach 5.

Before we went to dinner I tried once again to use the Tyme iron that I bought. I literally followed along with the Youtube video in the hopes that I could at least end up with some semblance of what they were showing.

Nope.  Either I’m an idiot or this thing absolutely does not work on my hair.  Suggestions?

The good news is I’m not the only one failing this week.  Check out these two photos from Vanity Fair.

Can you spot the extra leg?

Oprah 3 hands

Oprah has extra hands!

It’s kind of ridiculous to focus on my flaws when Reese Witherspoon is perfectly fine with her three legs and Oprah has obviously put her three hands to good use.

Have a happy Friday y’all.

How was your week?

It’s Friday and this post is a quick one because I’m in a fight with a squirrel

I know, I know, I’ve been MIA for a few days. I have a pretty good explanation. You see the kid is coming home for Christmas for a few days and it’s also his birthday and so I’ve been getting all prepared, which basically means….

boss shop
So, yeah.

Also, I had to have MacGyver repair some Christmas lights and then I had to restring them. In case you’re wondering why, let’s just say I’ve got a contract out on a certain squirrel in my neighborhood.

Kill the squirrel
Oh, it’s so on little squirrel, IT IS ON!

I’ve also been busy going through my closet and trying to find out what fits and what doesn’t. Most of the things I’ve tried on fall into the latter category.

scale fail
I know what the problem is. Topirimate. When I stopped taking it the weight just creeped up. And I’m fine with it. I’d rather be 10 pounds heavier that have pneumonia every other week and run the risk of destroying my lungs. And then there’s the whole eye issue thing. F*ck Topirimate all the way to hell but I’m not bitter. No, really, not at all.

I went to ALDI a few times this week and each time someone has given me a cart without asking for a quarter.

In case you don’t know how ALDI works, you pay a quarter to basically rent the cart while you shop and then you get it back when you return the cart. It helps ALDI because they don’t have to pay someone to retrieve their carts from the parking lot and in turn keep their prices low. We like low prices around here.

We also like not having to dig to the bottom of our purse to find a damn quarter. Because you know how I dig through my purse, right?

purse digI throw that shit right on the floor.  It has never failed me.  Well, except once when I threw everything on the floor in my car and the one quarter rolled up under the seat in that little spot that you can never ever reach.  So, thank you random stranger and I paid it forward too!

Happy Friday folks, I’m going hunting, for a squirrel.

What are you doing this weekend?  

Any Christmas light fails?  Tell me please!
