Busy as bee... (they will probably make that into a Geico commercial)

I've been a little busy this past week so the posting has been a little light so here is a quick recap since I probably won't have too much free time this weekend to spend on the computer.  I will be spending the most of my day today and tomorrow at work.
I made this angry birds pig as part of a co-workers birthday present.  Almost anyone with an iphone will know who he is :)  I think it's on the android market too.

Another last minute thrown together meal.  The kid really liked it so I will be making it again and will post a recipe in case anyone is interested.  This version wasn't the healthiest but there are a few ways to modify it to make it better for you.  Next time I make it I will sneak some of those in there to see if anyone notices.  If I tell the boys I changed something to make it healthier they always say they can tell and don't like it.  If I say nothing, they have no idea.  Ugh boys!  

Started on book one of the Hunger Games.  I didn't realize it was such a popular series.  When I am carrying it around people always seem to comment or ask questions about it.  I have become so use to reading on the nook and people not knowing what I'm reading it comes as a little surprise when I get questions about it.  

Gardening still consumes my daylight hours when I am home.  Each day that goes by the sun seems to stay around a little longer.  I can't wait until summer when the daylight sticks around after 8pm.  The blistering heat I can live without.
I also said goodbye to my old car.  I found this photo from when we first picked it up from the dealership.  I will post some photos of the new car later.

Now I am off to work @ 7am on a Saturday.  Does anyone have some fun plans that I can live vicariously through?

  2. Hunger Games is one of my fav all time books! :)
    I have a tshirt that says Katniss could whip Bella anyday. (I liked Twilight too, but not as much). I was so excited when one of my students was actually reading it. I wanted to stop everything and talk about it, haha, kind of inappropriate since it was FRENCH class.

  3. I still haven't played angry birds but I have heard all about it. Your dish looks delish! I will def be looking forward to that recipe.
    I have said this so many times but I absolutely can't wait to start my garden this year. I am so excited about it!!

    And I really need to check that book out! I keep hearing wonderful things about it!

    No great plans for the weekend other than crocheting some orders and cleaning house! Fun! haha.

    I hope your weekend doesn't suck too much! i will be spending next weekend like that.
    Take care beautiful friend!

    P.S. I'm passing on a Stylish Blogger Award to you:

  9. I don't know what angry birds is but I sure do like that pig. As for exciting plans, does staying home all day and handsewing count? Probably not...

  10. Gardening sounds so nice right now! It's a blizzard out and I'm enjoying your warm weather pictures :)
