Motivation… I’m having folks over, I’d better tidy up. Really. that is the secret to my housekeeping. If I have folks over I have a reason to clean. If I stay home by myself or go out, the place goes to shit in no time!
Relaxation… clink, slurp, nibble, clink, slurp, slurp… you get the picture.
and we are delightfully the most random, ADD, scatterbrains you can put together in a room. We are all sarcastic, obnoxious, crude and hysterical. a tiny snapshot for you of the evening…
I’m going to smoke a cigarette. What?! you don’t smoke. I know…
She’s crop dusting.
Break the chain. have I shown you how to break the chain? (insert demonstration here followed by uproarious laughter) no, you clap behind you. I’m going to crop dust Gayle’s bedroom. no, I think we should all go smoke a cigarette in Gayle’s bed.
How’d you do that? Oh you push the arrow button and select what you want to send.
What’s the difference between photo album and photo stream?
My mom asked what’s a pie hole.
When N catches things, it kinda turn me on a little bit.
See how you look when your being an asshole
All my beanie babies are vintage. and All your slap bracelets. I had pink high tops. You can make slap bracelets.
You can get toeless socks for yoga. There’s also sort of sick shit at health clubs. You can get a staph infection.
Mmmmm mom candy
There may be some exploding cigarettes. A car driving by may think its a backfire
Aaahhhhhhhhhh….. Christa’s having good love w the foam roller.
Don’t get all compost Gestapo on me.
You have a boob on your head
I’d stalk all those crafters on pinterest and steal their fabric stash. How do you tell your insurance company your stash was stolen?
See why I love my girlfriends? and I got the nicest email thank you note just a few short minutes after everyone left. “no one hosts a better farting-burping bash than you do!” they like me, they really like me 😉
One of the giggly girls found this nugget this morning. Too perfect for our band of hellions to not share!
Thursdays have turned into girl’s night. Watch Mad Men, craft, giggle and bitch. oh, and eat of course. We each bring a snack to share. You can usually tell what kind of day it’s been depending on what shows up.
This week I’ve been getting back to center after the madness of Rebuilding Together is done. One evening a few weeks ago, Christa and I grabbed a multi-pack of flavored hummus-es (is there really a plural?). One was Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus and it was the clear winner of the pack! So, I’ve set about to come up with my own version and judging by it’s reception the 2 times I’ve made this now, I’ll say it’s a success. and super easy!
Throw this all into the food processor and blend until smooth:
1 19z can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
juice of 2 small limes
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup canola oil
1 bunch of cilantro, just chop off lower stems and throw the rest in
1 medium jalapeno, I started with half the seeds and later added remaining seeds
salt to taste (I started w 2t)
Serve with chips or veggies. Makes a perfect accompaniment for Margaritas 😉 Enjoy!
