I feel pretty…Oh so pretty…

This is the weekend of girly biz apparently…

Yesterday: Manicures and an actual PROFESSIONAL haircut. Yes, I went to a salon and apologized profusely to my stylist for cheating on her with myself. As soon as she caught her breath from the hysterical laughing fit she had when I mentioned the dog grooming shears, she gave me a very nice trim…

Avery charmed the nail tech so much that she got her nails painted for free!

Today is pedi day!

Sometimes it’s good to be a girl…

Santa and the Mrs….

So.

If Hub’s hair and beard were white and if mine were white(er) and I wore one of those puffy kerchief hat thingies and we both had a penchant for fur trimmed red clothing, we’d be dead ringers for The Claus’s.

When it’s April and not December that ain’t a good thing….

It’s cuz we’re getting fat(ER) y’all. Like, we’ve both had to purchase bigger pants…Personally I don’t give a hoot but the Hubs is concerned to the point he has requested that I stop buying him soda….

Whoa…..

So I’m working on menu’s for the next 2 weeks. Lighter recipes, not meals consisting of nuthin’ but rabbit food (Let’s not get NUTS here) and as I was thinking about this I wandered over to my fav food blog and hit the Motha Load of lightened up recipes!

Seriously, I’ve got a whole bunch of yummy meals planned plus some desserts (cuz, HELLO it’s still me and I need some desserty goodness in my face from time to time. OK, everyday)….It was like one stop shopping. Except I do still have to ACTUALLY go shopping for the stuff to make all this skinny yumminess so there’s that….

Pinch of Yum…

Lindsay has a whole big mongo section in her recipe archives of nuttin’ but lightened up, healthier recipes. It’s like she knew my fat ass was gonna need help someday. Her pictures are divine (duh) and I’ve never tried one of her recipes that didn’t live up to the pic….I’m putting the fate of our chubby taste buds in her hands….

I ain’t skeered.

See? Lindsay takes THE BEST food pics like EVA'...

I think this may be what I make first….BBQ Chicken Pizza. Cuz just looking at the pic makes me hungry….

In the meantime, I’ll just be sitting over here in my comfy fat pants, waiting for the damn snow to melt, envisioning myself a svelte size 16…

Ok. Enuff…

Am I Cuckoo Crazy in thinking that February is for snow and April is for green grass and flowers???

Somebody tell that sh*t to Old Man Effin’ Winter….

That's Hubs in the plow truck....PLOWING SHOULD NOT BE NEEDED IN APRIL.

This is my deck. I should be planting flowers in pots out here...

That big black thing is my grill….I SHOULD BE GRILLIN’ STEAKS OR SOMETHING WITHOUT HAVING TO UNBURY THE GRILL FIRST.

I have a BBQ/Baby shower planned in 2 weeks (a Baby-Q!). I need it to be Spring-like, warm enough to play lawn games, nice enough to plant flowers in the wagon I hauled home from Washington.

We had mid-60 degree weather in friggin’ February…I expect the same in May, is that too much to ask??

12 bucks well spent….

Vivi and I found a prize for Peanut on our recent thrift store adventure…

From the moment she spied it in her little play space at Grammy’s house, she approved of our find!

Like, SERIOUSLY approved…IMG_2608

As in, couldn’t get her out of it when it was time for her to go home…

I think this summer I’ll take it outside and let her cook up some rocks and dirt…

Gravel Souffle’ anyone?

Twig Stew?

Grass Gumbo?

Mulch Cookies with Dirt Sprinkles??

Peanut’s Fresco Cafe¬† is open for business!
