Happy Anniversary!!!

Happy Anniversary, Cyndi and Eric!!!

Fall TV

What is the show you are most looking forward to coming back this fall?  I love The O.C.  I'm also looking forward to the season premiere of The Biggest Loser along with Grey's Anatomy , Desperate Housewives , and House .

Here are some House-isms.  I love that show!

“I always say if you’re going to get shot, do it in a hospital.”

“Gotta hand it to Foreman, though. He knew you were a suck up and I don’t give a crap. He successfully exploited us both.”

“Why do you wanna sleep on a couch anyway? You got money. At least until the divorce is finalized.”

Cameron – “Could pain medication cause an orgasm?”
House – “I wish.”

Here's another

Last one I'll post LOL  I forgot about Lemon Bars!  They're one of my favorites!

Lemon Squares
by Michelle Jones

These delicious bars are perfect for summer and any time of the year, but especially for anyone who likes a tangy lemon flavoring. Add a light dusting of powdered sugar on top and watch how fast they disappear!

* * *


1 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. butter

1/4 c. granulated sugar or powdered sugar

Beat butter and sugar together until fluffy, then stir in flour until blended well. Press dough into greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.


2 eggs, beaten

3/4 c. granulated sugar

2-3 T. lemon juice

Dash of grated lemon rind

2 T. all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Beat filling ingredients together until smooth, then spread on top of warm crust. Return to 350 degree oven and bake for another 25-30 minutes until edges begin to turn a golden brown.

Cool. Dust with powdered sugar and cut into squares.


Just realized those Kit Kat Bars have peanut butter in them. Maybe not such a good idea. Oh well, the Oreos look fun! :-D

Big Brother

Anyone watching Big Brother? Sunday nights episode with Will and the camera were cracking us up! Who do you think will ultimately win?? Janelle drives me nuts, but she's a damn good player! I can't believe Will and Boogie have pulled off what they have so far. I mean, someone's gotta take them down at some point. If not they damn well deserve to win the game!

So when we go to the Back to School BBQ/Meet Your Teacher night, we have to bring a dessert. I thought of Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I don't want to be booooooorrrrrrrrring. Anyone have any grand ideas for something easy but not boring like CCC?

I had a great post earlier that I thought about coming to put here. Think I could think of it now? Of course not. I'm blaming it on my blondeness! LOL

Happy Birthday!

Up in a puff of smoke

Tonight I was cleaning. Ok, get up off the floor now, I didn't mean to surprise you. ;) For some reason Kaelyn's school lunch bag was on the table. I picked it up and it was heavy. I know I told her a LONG time ago to empty it. You know where this is going, don't you?

I took out the ice things and took out the Tupperware sandwich box, opened it up and POOF in my face was a cloud of green smoke. BLECH! There was a full sandwich in there.

Stephanie later asked if Kaelyn put something hot in there because of the "steam" that came out. LOL You'll all be happy to know that the sandwich, Tupperware and all, is in the outside garbage can.


Well fiddle fart. I had links over there ----> and since I changed the "template" I lost the links. *sigh*

Wish I Was Independently Wealthy

Just had the worst shift at work. UGH!!! I need to be scheduled for said shift more often and things need to quit changing so often.

Interior Decorating

I need something fun to redecorate this blog. Let me know if you have any ideas!! I like blue, but this is booooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiingg. LOL

Here I am to save the day!!

OK, maybe I can't save the day, per se, but I'm back and decided to start blogging again. Yay!!
