Day 274

Ryne and I went to see Ingrid Michaelson in Bloomington at The Bluebird back in October.  We waited for over an hour to meet and greet with her, and it paid off!  She signed a poster for Bridget (Christmas present!!!) and I actually went back up again later to ask her to personalize it (and she did!).  We took a bunch of goofy pictures while waiting for Miss Ingrid to reappear after the concert.  :)



In case we didn't get a signature...

...and in case we did get one!



No flashes allowed, so of course it was blurry (it was really late).

Day 273

I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman's blog.  They looked pretty tasty, so I thought I'd give them a whirl for some Christmas treat boxes I made.  They were definitely a success, and so I'm going to try and make more soon!  :)

I used my new cookie dough scoop, and man, did it work well!



Dear Silpat, you rock! :)


I actually used a triple chocolate fudge cake mix (instead of devil's food) since I already had it.  Worked out really well!

Day 272

I made a scavenger hunt as part of Ryne's Christmas gift.  He had to follow about 20 clues all around his house, and it was fun to watch him figure it all out.  A few times I had to stop him from looking in the wrong place (because another clue was hiding in that spot).  I think he enjoyed it. :)

Day 271

Today was "Tour de Food," and it was delicious.  Bridget, Heather, and I started off at Bub's (with a guest appearance by Stephanie M.), then proceeded to Brugge (with a guest appearance by Ryne).  After that, we went to The Flying Cupcake, and were officially in food heaven / in a food coma.  I would love to make this an annual tradition. :)

Day 268

Christmas Eve totally rocks!  Mine was filled with not one, but TWO church services and the most delicious lasagna I've ever had. Mmm...lasagna. :)

I bought the coolest wine glasses yesterday as a gift for a couple.  Ooooh, I hope they like them! :)

Day 261

Taking three little girls to Meijer with three adults is crazy.  I don't know how the mommas do it on their own.  We all had pizza, went to the store, then wrapped all of the presents with the girls.  Needless to say, I slept really well!

Day 260

We're watching "The Office" from the beginning of the series.  I forgot about a lot of the good pranks and jokes! :)

Day 259

I'm so happy that I have a business with a friend, and our clients are either our friends or they become our friends.  It's great!

Day 258

When at Ryne's, I get to use the best blanket ever.  It also comes in the form of a robe, which I wear like a reverse snuggie.  Ha, snuggie, this is SO much better!  If you've got some extra cash, buy yourself one of these blankets.  They're huge, soft, warm, and fantastic. :)

Day 256

I had my most favorite chocolate cake today at my church's Christmas party.  It was delicious, as always.  :)
Currently, it's like a snow globe outside.  We got a few inches of snow, and now the wind is roaring, so it's hard to tell if it's just blowing around or still snowing.  :oP

Day 255

Today has been a random day so far.  Breakfast was normal, then after Ryne left, my dad came over to help me with a few things.  We were in the middle of hanging a few new frames, when I catch a whiff of something NASTY.  I asked him to check his shoes.  Sure enough, he stepped in poop coming from his house to mine, and man was it fresh!  So, we immediately dropped everything and tried to find all the places he touched in my house with the stinky shoe.  Luckily, it was almost all just on the hardwood floor.  The smell actually got worse as we were cleaning it all up.  I went on spray patrol; I sprayed the floors all down and wiped them up, and I sprayed the rooms with air freshener.  Nothing like going from cranberry zest candle to poop in a matter of minutes!

I'm getting ready to go to a baby shoot (my first!) and then to my work year-end party.  It's a murder mystery, so this should be pretty funny.  I'm especially excited to have Ryne there, so some of my friends that haven't met him yet can, and vice versa.  :)
