No Way!

I bet you never thought you would see these again...Pictures!

We made Wonton's last night...and actually pulled out the camera for the occasion.

The recipe is adapted from HERE
But we used Ground Pork and skipped the Shrimp. It makes quite a few Wonton's.

Getting OLD

In my old age (yes I know I'm not that old) my vision is well going down hill. Apparently new glasses would help me not getting lost on a regular basis when trying to squint at road signs as I drive past them. Yep I'm the person who slows down (mainly at night) squinting trying to read a road sign while you drive behind me waving your arm's like a maniac in frustration.

So YEAH to new glasses which are cheap hence I can order a few new pairs to keep in important places like the CAR!

Oh if your wondering where I'm ordering these from...HERE for the cheepo's and HERE for the discounted fancy stuff.

The Jedi

Another way to push my buttons: "Trust me I'm a Jedi", the boy responding to a question regarding laundry. Well I hope his Jedi skills didn't shrink another sweater.

To add to the bad

So to finish off the list of the bad things from the other day...We decided to go to the DQ for a dipped cone, and it is no longer in existence! Thus spent half an hour driving around trying to find somewhere else to have desert ending up having pie at the Marie Calendars...just not the same as a dipped cone!

Out with the Old...

I've been motivated to clean house. Its a little early for spring cleaning but with all the gifts from Christmas it was time to purge. 3 bags later and one trip to the recycling to drop off stuff I'm still not done. Kinda making myself out to be a hoarder arn't I?

New Year!

Well what do I have to say for myself besides the fact that this year is going down as one of the fastest years to date! A lot went on so let me give you the run down...

Graduate School (almost 1/2 way done), A New Home (we are here to stay for a while), Fish, Friends, Baking, Little Crafting (thank you graduate school), Building Furniture, New Spin Bike, Hiking, Biking, Running (lots of Running), GYM (me time), Kayak, SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board), Studying, Group Projects (oh how I love the group projects), Exams, Papers, Work (lots of that), Caltrain Commute, Button Pushing, Building a Planter Box, "Farming", Bicycle, And So Much More!

So this year was busy mainly on the work and school side, but I'm still living. I have some goals for the year including getting back to the blog. There are 52 weeks a year which means I WILL blog 52 times! Minimum (you never know it might go a bit crazy).

My others somewhat new years'y resolutions are:
1. Putting my clothes away when I get home (The boy is not a fan of me just putting it on the couch).
2. Packing my work bag the night before so I can get those few extra minutes of shut eye.
3. Wear my hair down a little more (or something other than a bun or pony tail)
4. Give the Boy an amazing 30th Bday party because he deserves it (He puts up with A LOT)
5. Learn some new skills to apply to the blog
6. Stay calm at work and keep a smile on my face (this is gonna be the tough one)
7. More ME Time!

This shouldn't be two bad but you never know!
