Last Weekend

Delicious . . . We tried this recipe this past weekend for breakfast. They were really good. A soft boiled egg - wrapped in bacon . . . then rolled in flour, egg, and finally in crumbs of panko, crushed almonds, and Parmesan cheese. Then we deep friend them until they were golden brown. They were really good . . . will definitely make them again. The weekend also consisted a lot of hard work. We cleaned the carpets and got the spare room in order. We really need new carpet - but this helps for now. I actually think we are going to put wood floors in rather than carpet. Anyway . . . I'm rambling - but I am really excited to have the carpets cleaned and the house in some better order. And this carpet cleaner was the best!!! We are going out of town this weekend for a tennis tournament. I hope to be good about taking pictures - so I have something to post.

At The Doctor

Jake hurt his knee playing basketball this week. : (
He has to have an MRI - and he's walking on crutches until then. Let's hope it isn't anything too serious. He wondered out loud why he gets hurt more as he is getting older. I laughed and told him . . . wait until he is over 50.
I had to play with my iphone while we were waiting.

Twisted Margarita

We finally went out to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings on Saturday. Wings were good . . . will definitely go back, although it is really noisy and talk about TV overload - they are everywhere. I tried the Twisted Margarita. It looked pretty . . . but too sweet for me. I should have gone with a regular margarita.

Gotta Be Silly

If there is one thing I have learned as I have passed the age of 50 . . . It is important to laugh and have fun - and for God's sake . . . BE SILLY!

How great is this chair!!!!

And if you see two "Get Lucky" hats sitting next to the Irish beer display at the grocery store . . . of course you have to stop and take a picture.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In reality . . . if there was a leprechaun on Richard's shoulder - they would be deciding where to go have a beer.
May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

We are Cartoons!

Ok . . . so maybe I'm a little obsessed with my iphone photo apps. I can't quit playing with them. So this new one turns us into cartoons. I have to play with it a little more . . . to really get the hang of what all I can do.

But aren't these so much fun?????

I love the pink frame in this one.

My rubberband ball

I can't remember when I started this. I know it has been over a year ago. It is now about the size of a softball. I figure I will keep adding to it until I retire at least. You should see it bounce!

More iphone fun

I have a couple of new photo apps on my phone. This is my green for the day. Love the guy on the cover of his magazine.

Audie's Olympic on a Sunday

We happened to go down to Audie's on Sunday . . . not knowing there was a Mardi Gras parade down in the Tower District. Really a fun afternoon with all the Tower characters. This isn't a very good picture . . . this guy is dressed like an Egyptian. The music was great and of course we ate Ming's after. The Tower District is always interesting - quite the party going on for a Sunday afternoon.

My Favorite Color

Someone hid some shamrock candy inside this big green bow . . . My kids used to believe in leprechauns when they were small . . . maybe they were right. : )
I may have to post a lot of green this month . . . it is my favorite color.

Whatever it is that I have . . . won't go away. I have been fighting off this junk off for weeks. Finally decided to stay home today and rest.
