Whoever invented Pinterest is both my favorite person ever and my worst enemy....

I can barely function now without constantly checking in to see what amazing new pictures have been pinned! I'm spending half of my life making boards for the house, for getting crafty, for yummy food that I'll never have time to make since I'm always on Pinterest!!! 

Check out some of the super cute things that have been popping up lately then hop on over to Pinterest and pin some of your own! 

Happy pinning!

Stupid Blogger... 

Apparently, some of my posts have disappeared since the site went down a few days ago... 
So I'll have to re-post them. 

And you know they're never as good as they once were....

feeling eggy!

I just came across the cutest idea on Facebook! 

There are even tutorials on making them into different shapes like cubes and pyramids!
If only Nick liked hard boiled eggs as much as I do... Or even at all! =/

Day 35 - A picture of your favorite place to eat.

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner there back in 2006...

And went there for my birthday this year, too!

Plus a million times in between...

Best. Food. Ever!!!

Back a hundred years ago when Nick and I first were dating, we took a road trip to Disneyland and after a long day of running around the park, we decided to stop for dinner at Buca's since we loved it soooo much. 

Unfortunately, once we got there and got out of the car, Nick realized that he didn't have his shoes on and that they must have been  
left behind in the parking garage at Disneyland! 

But there was no way we were leaving without some 
Buca in our bellies! 

So... Nick pulled his pants down a bit so the legs would cover his poor shoeless feet and he shuffled into the restaurant. When they sat us, of course they took us through the kitchen!

And Nick had NO SHOES ON!  =/

We sat shamefaced for the rest of our meal at our table, 
but we had our Buca so we were just dandy.... 

And who needs shoes when you've got a full belly???
