Whatever Friday

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. ย 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. ๐Ÿ™ 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.

  1. 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.

  2. Hey Dorothy! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Between you and Averie Cooks…. both posting cake batter milkshake recipes this week.. I MUST jump on board. Hope you had a great date night! LOVE that maxi dress my dear!

  3. Oh, boy, you’ve had a delicious week! And alone time is what I treasure the most!!! Hope you had some good “me” time ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. 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!

  5. 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.
