Girls Gone Wild or Is It Mild?


I think it would be more mild than wild. Friday night was spent with Bird and my mom. After a dinner at Chick Fil A (they have grilled chicken nuggets now!) with them and Bird’s husband and girls we headed to a movie. What’s Your Number? was funny although there were a few times I wanted to crawl underneath the seat since I happened to be sitting next to mom.

Anna Farris is funny and just like Emma Stone, I adore her! Although I kept waiting for her to do that low, creepy voice that she did in House Bunny. Her husband was also in the movie as one of her exes that she kept running into throughout the movie. Her neighbor in the movie is Chris Evans and I have a new appreciation for him. Yummy to look at and even I would jump into the Boston Harbor with him sans clothes!

As we were leaving the the theater I noticed a cardboard cutout for the newest Muppet movie, I gently sat on the “bench” for a giggle but promptly jumped up when mom offered to take a picture. No thanks mom. I can embarrass myself enough without you helping me.

It was then decided that we would run to Kohl’s to look at their jeans for Bird’s girls. That was a quick trip through the place since they were closing in ten minutes. I did catch a glimpse of JLo’s new line. Meh, they were okay. I am more of a classics kind of girl anyway, so the trendy stuff tends to not end up in my closet. After talking about maybe going somewhere else, the decision was made to go to WalMart. I am not a fan of going there but we were in the vicinity and since dad wanted me to make Beef Burgundy I thought it would kill two birds with one stone.

After stock piling the cart with a couple of my favorites since I am watching what I eat I got down to business and picked out all the ingredients for the dish. Is it sad that I can now just think about what I need instead of referencing the actual recipe. In fact, I can now make it without really checking the cookbook.

I did go with one change. This is a stew that needs to sit in the oven for a few hours and the beef tips that I normally get end up breaking apart into smaller pieces. This time I got a roast and cut it up. Much better! I believe this was my best batch yet. After getting through the store we headed to my place so I could run Bridesmaids down to mom. She didn’t like it. But she liked The Hangover, I am beginning to think that when it comes to crude comedy, she doesn’t have an issue with men being crude but women? She doesn’t like that. And she was blessed with a daughter who burps, a lot. One of my favorite lines in the movie? Melissa McCarthy’s character in the bridal salon burps/farts and she says, “I am not even confident about which end that came out of.” Umm, classic!

The boy called around that time giving me a hard time about calling at the end of the Cardinals game, sorry about that. I just don’t follow baseball, so it is so hard for me to even keep up with this whole playoffs thing. And what did we talk about? Food! I swear, between talks of food, football and exercise we never end up talking about anything else. But we are both foodies, so it tends to happen more than naught that the topic comes up.

So that was my mild Friday night! The rest of the weekend consisted of cooking and watching football. See, one track mind (well two. . . )

Now it is time for the sad panda face since it is Sunday night and I need to get ready for work tomorrow.

What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
