I'm planning to start renovating our laundry room/closet this weekend... I'm going to Home Depot tonight buy some lumber to build a platform for our front loading washer/dryer. I'm sick and tired of having to sit on the floor to load my laundry!

Church on Sunday morning, then going to visit a close friend of ours who is home for two weeks from Oregon! We haven't seen him since our wedding and are so excited for him to be home.

  • 1.  Do you have any travel planned for 2011? Where/when and why?
    End of April we are going to New Orleans for a wedding of some of our best friends.  It will be our first "outing" as a family!  I'm excited and nervous!  I also want to make it out to visit my mom in Alexandria for sure, and possibly out to CA but that might be next year.  We'll see how it goes!

    2.  What is your favorite product that is made in your home state?
     You mean besides gold ;)  Hmm.. I guess Pasties..they aren't specifically from my area, but the gold miners would eat them when they worked so it's a big thing in my area.  I love them, they are SOO yummy.  They're basically potato/meat pies in a pastry shell.  Delish.
     
    3.  What is your guaranteed weeping movie?
    Armageddon.  It's the combination of Aerosmith, Bruce Willis and the daddy-daughter thing that gets me every time.  I have never made it through without crying at the end when Bruce's character is saying goodbye.
     
    4.  Do you know any recipes by heart?
    No. I'm one of those that HAVE to have a recipe.  But Andy usually does the cooking anyways and I do the baking so it's good if I follow a recipe since you need to be exact.

    5.  Plans for the weekend?

      Today we're getting our new mattress delivered!  We broke down and bought a tempurpedic.  SO expensive but hopefully worth it!  The rest of the weekend I'm working on the nursery, figuring out what to have my mom bring down from Ikea, picking an insurance plan and going to birthday dinner at MIL's house (not really looking forward to that, just bc of the drive).

  • 1. Do you have any travel planned for 2011? Where/when and why? Yep. April 9 we are going to FL for 5 days to visit my cousins.....that is, if Mike's boss doesn't give him a hard time (vibes, please, since we already have our air fare booked!). He's going to talk to him about it next month. Also, my friend in OH son is graduating so his party is June 25 (she planned it around us) and my family reunion is in July in Pittsburgh. My cousin is getting married on the 8th so I'm assuming the reunion will be on the 9th since people will be up from FL for the wedding.

    2. What is your favorite product that is made in your home state? Biggby Coffee products. I LOVE their sweet and fattening cold and hot drinks and I'm good and order them with no caffeine, skim milk and sometimes even sugar free.  :)  And they have the BEST blueberry muffins!

    3. What is your guaranteed weeping movie?  Oh, my...I have so many of them.  I guess I'll throw one in at random and say the Notebook.

    4. Do you know any recipes by heart?  A couple of them, mostly simple ones that came from members of my family.

    5. Plans for the weekend?  Well.....we were supposed to have date night tomorrow and possibly stop by my friend's "divorce celebration," but I'm starting catch what everyone at work was passing around so we're just going to stay in all weekend instead.

  • 1.  Do you have any travel planned for 2011? Where/when and why?

    Disney World the first full week in June! I can not wait. DH & I are surprising SD.  Also, DH's family rents a house at White Lake every summer for a week but I get so few vacation days that I'll just go down that last weekend. We always go to Sunset Beach, NC over Memorial & Labor Day weekends. In November DH & I go to the NC mountains. 

    2.  What is your favorite product that is made in your home state?

    I have 2, Young's chocolate covered pecans & Blenheim Ginger Ale

    3.  What is your guaranteed weeping movie?

    I know this makes me sound cold but I don't cry at movies but I think several of you will get a kick out of knowing that I played M'Lynn in our locak theater's porduction of Steel Magnolias. I didn't even have to study my lines - i'd seen the movie so many times that I already had them memorized but I'll tell you, that scene where M'Lynn cried after Shelby died was tough.

    4.  Do you know any recipes by heart?

    yep, several.

    5.  Plans for the weekend?

    Right now nothing except cleaning & doing laundry.

    I have to disagree with you Julie - my favorite thing about St. Louis was the gooey butter cake LOL OMGGGGGGG  I want a piece RIGHT NOW

    I do love me some gooey butter cake, but I'm not technically from MO.  I was born and raised in small town IL, so that's where I consider home.

    I should send you some gooey butter cookies, they are even better than the cake (IMO).

    It's all good.  We do have some yummy food here.  Now I want gooey butter cake/cookies.  DH is not a big fan of them so I never buy it.  They also have gooey butter brownies which are also pretty awesome.
