This decided to post on its own Monday night. I am going to have to find a new blog host.
Premature, blogger, premature.

My entire life.

Scott brought me the greatest care package ever!

The most exciting news all week!! Brad Meltzer is getting a new show!!!

I had a blog once where I attempted to chronicle my day to day life. It was my last year in Alabama when it was just me and Kamren all day. Now I am gone 11 hours a day, and I come home, eat, clean, sleep. I try to go and see my peeps, but some days I don't even have the energy for that. I want to try it again, maybe it will inspire me to actually do stuff.

When I read this I laughed, snorted, then fell out on the bed. THIS, is my entire life:

I have amazing people in my life who give the best advice:

OMG, I am guilty to maybe 80% of these!! #applemangotango

I redid my website. Go see all the pictures I stole took.

I cooked!
Shrimp Alfredo

That's it for this week. Maybe next week I will have a new blog provider.
Unless it takes effort. Let's not get crazy.

Recipes: Shrimp Alfredo

This is super easy and nom.

What you need:
Shrimp. I used fully cooked, frozen, medium. You just need to run cold water over them and picked off their little tails. Scott likes to buy steamed seasoned shrimp. I like $7.99 over $20. Sue me.
Butter. Enter the debate over using "real " butter v/s Country Crock. I maintain that Country Crock is butter. Whatever. Use a pat or so of ugly stick butter.
A shake or two of parsley and basil.
2 jars of Classic Ragu Alfredo Sauce. I don't even care what your favorite kind is. This is what you want.
Thin pasta. Angel Hair would be ideal. I had thin spaghetti on hand way in the back of the fridge. It works.
A big heaping spoon of minced garlic.

What you need to do:
Boil the pasta.
Melt the butter in a skillet, add shrimp and minced garlic to medium heat, stir until garlic cooks down, 5-7 minutes.
Add one jar of Alfredo to the shrimp, add the seasonings, turn to low until the pasta is ready.
Drain the pasta, add the second jar of Alfredo.
Huge debate whether to mix it all together in the shrimp skillet, or the pasta pot.
The pot won.

Throw a little Parmesan on there. Shaved is my favorite. I had shredded.
My world, my world.


Just one of my favorite pictures ever. Move along.

The Night CircusThe Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was the best opening to a book that I have ever read. There were times when reading the book that I felt I had no idea what was going on, but I always figured it out. My imagination isn't as vivid as it used to be, so it was difficult to imagine some of the things described (like the 'veil' in Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix), but I recommend this highly to everyone.

Inferno (CSI Reilly Steel, #2)Inferno by Casey Hill

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A killer killing people in the order of Hell in Dante's Inferno. Even though the plot is completely different from Dan Brown's Inferno, THIS was a good book. I enjoy these books a lot, and I am about to begin the third book in the Reilly Steel series.

Chips of Red PaintChips of Red Paint by K. Martin Beckner

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I don't know what I went into the book expecting, but it wasn't at all what I got. Not that it's a bad thing, I just read the description way different than what it was. I liked it though.

I follow a blog where the guy documents everything that happens throughout his day. I attempted it a few years ago with a daily blog, but couldn't keep up. I said I was going to try it just this one day.

Sunday *no early A.M. pictures, I had to charge my phone*
Woke up, brushed teeth.
Checked Facebook, Twitter, email.
Scott cooked breakfast, ate turkey bacon, over easy eggs, toast & jelly.
Drank a ton of Dt Mtn Dew
Made dish water.
"Full Metal Jacket" is on tv. I wish I had the remote to change it .
It's like he read my mind, and went to the TV Guide.
I see Nanny McPhee is on. I have no clue what could be better than this! Why isn't he changing it!
Oh never mind, he put it back on the bloody movie.
The acting is clearly being read off cue cards.
10 minutes later, still haven't touched the dishes.
I washed a load of whites.
When I finally got to the dishes 20 minutes after I made the water, Scott comes up and tries to recreate the pottery wheel scene from "Ghost".
He got shot down real quick.
I added new pictures to my website.
Well this is okay, he put it on "She's the Man". I LOL.
Straightened half of my hair.
Put on face cream and mascara, put on work clothes.
Gave up with hair, put it in a ponytail.
Grabs laptop, phone, and keys, or so I thought.
Leave for work, thank the Good Lord the a/c is still working.
Get over halfway to work, remember I forgot the keys to my office, had to turn around.
Stomps in house, grabs keys, stomps back out.
Arrive at work, do work stuff until 5pm.
Clock out, go to the grocery store.
Wait until Scott is loading everything onto the belt, sneak out to the truck.

I soulfully serenaded him on the way home. It was not appreciated.

I clearly was interrupting his meal.
Ate dinner (Sonic), put up groceries, took out the trash, emptied and washed the litter boxes.
That moment when you're eating dinner and your husband wants you to scratch and investigate a bump on his back. And...I'm done with eating.
Cleaned the living room whilst watching The Hobbit.
Washed and dried the loveseat cover and washed all of the blankets/throws. Not because the dog lays on them while we are sleeping.....
I used the Swiffer to dust under the bookshelves, the a/c kicked on and dust blew into my eye. I died.
Accidentally mixed up washing the top and bottom sheet, so at bedtime we have a clean dry bottom sheet and the top sheet is in the washer. I'm down.
Aside from replacing the toilet paper, that's pretty much my day.
See why I don't blog like the other dude does?
He remembers to take pictures and do, things.

And my family mocks the baby names that I pick out!

What? How did this get here?

If you want to brighten my day, mail me something. Not bills.

This makes me laugh every time I see it. I am really 12 years old...

$2500 for a chair. Yes please.

Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars, #1)Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My sister told me not to read the books, to stick to the TV series, that I wouldn't like the books. I didn't dislike the book at all, but I did compare them, and I like the show better, which is very rare for me. I may try a couple more, I have been wrong before. Gasp.
