Whatever Friday

Pin It

TGIF people! I must say, for me it truly is TGIF. Because this weekend my wonderful husband is taking Jordan to visit his mom.

So I will be alone.

For two nights.

I think I hear angels singing. Maybe it’s just me?

1. This week I…

Discovered my love of milkshakes. {And re-affirmed my love of Joy the Baker.}

Re-inforced that I never want to be on TV. Instead, I’ll laze around on my couch and eat these.

And I made myself a snack so that I could ignore all the mess.

2. I’m so stoked for Saturday night. The RHOC Reunion Part 1 was on last Tuesday. I DVR’d it and Hayley is coming over to watch with me. We’re gonna drink midori lemonades and pause in between fights to make fun of Tamra’s hair and Alexis’…well, just Alexis.

3. We went to the Bay Area to visit my parents this week.

The “sisters” got along in the car.

I love this view. It’s the entrance to the downtown that leads to my parents’ house. I spend countless hours walking up and down this street, shopping, eating, and just…being.

Mel and I *gasp* got to have date night. I wore my new maxi dress. Gotta love Ross; I spent $10 for something that costs at least twice that anywhere else.

What fun things did you do this week?

4. For Flashback Friday this week, I’m bringing you a savory recipe. I know, yes, it’s dinner. I posted a handful of them back in the day. {Please. Don’t go searching. The photos are horrendous.}

Knoepfle. These are a Swiss/German noodle my dad makes. I guess it’s a tradition now that we have “Thanksgiving in July” with my parents (two years in a row makes tradition, right?) This noodle has been served at every special occasion meal as long as I can remember. We had them again this week, and I got to come home with two Cool Whip containers full. Yay me!

5. Don’t forget! You can still enter my giveaway for the fabulous dessert jewelry, sponsored by Fakery Bakery 2. You don’t want to miss out! I think I want every single piece of jewelry in that store!

6. Don’t forget – you can find me on BlogFrog! Join my community and figure out a new form of social media with me.

7. Finally, after months of using not-so-nice language when dealing with my old PC, we went and got me a new computer – a Mac. Please. If you use a Mac, tell me what to do. Have any tips or tricks? Let me know.

8.  I am very bummed that Foodbuzz scheduled their conference in San Francisco the same weekend as the Nike Women’s Marathon. Um, whatcha thinkin’ Foodbuzz? Maybe that hotel prices will skyrocket and for those of us that have to use reward points, there will be none available? I looked forward to that conference since the day the last one ended. :( Now we REALLY need to schedule a blogger thing sometime next year. Let’s start planning!!!!

Have a great weekend everyone! Thanks for visiting this week. Y’all rock.

xo,
Dorothy :)

    I agree about a blogger meet up next year! I can’t go to Foodbuzz either, my daughter has her swimming regionals that weekend!

    But we definitely need to plan something! Say hi to Hayley, have fun you crazy girls!

    That definitely seals the deal that I’m not headed to Foodbuzz:-) Crazy expensive is what that will be. Let’s all look into one next year that works for all of us. I would love to do Blissdom maybe? Two nights alone? I am super duper jealous:-) Have fun with Hayley…sounds like a fun night!!!

    You have reminded me, yet again, that I have no cookies in the freezer. Gotta do something about that!

    And, what about Barting in to SF via Berkeley?

    Have a wonderful weekend!

      Yes you must! As for SF, the nights go pretty late. I could stay with my parents, but I don’t want to be out driving at 11pm!

    I cannot WAIT for tomorrow night!! Tamra, Tamra. Your hair consistently defies age, gravity and eras (someone in the 80s wants it back and your tracks look more obvious than Alexis’ nose job). Yay! Also, you look super duper cute in your new maxi dress! Ross rocks. Let’s do a Ross/HG/HL haul and go psycho-crazy there :) And can we PLEASE plan a huge blogger meet-up sometime soon!?

    Ooo, so many goodies, I’m drooling. That dress looks fabulous on you and for $10? I’m definitely living in the wrong country! Yay for date night too. We’ve not had a date night for…. actually, I can’t remember.

    Congrats on your new Mac! I have no tricks, as I haven’t really used one since college, but I’m adjusting well. I’m just enjoying having a new, clean computer (no crumbs under these keys!) where I can begin to organize my files and photos in the way an adult should.
    Enjoy your quiet weekend!

    Jordan is as adorable as her Mom! I love Ross, too! I wore a dress over the weekend from there. I get the best deals for sooo little. What fun to visit you parents and spend time with them.
