I LOVED it!!!

I talked here before about how I was a bit nervous for Committed.
Well, I finished it a week or two ago and I have to say I love, love, loved it!
At the first of the book Elizabeth explains that she is writing to a certain number of women. She names them as her mom, her friends, her sister, etc. I honestly was sort of expecting her to name me as one of those women she was writing to. I sometimes forget that I we aren't friends....that she doesn't even know me!
She just writes so well and it's like she is talking to me, the reader.
Anyway, the book was excellent and was totally what I needed to read right now. I borrowed it from the library, but I will definitely be purchasing it for myself.

What a bitch.

I'm never home during the day, so I haven't watched The View in years. It's been so long that the last time I watched Star Jones and Meredith Vieira were still on.
Today I am home for just an hour between work and a doctor's appointment. I turned on the tv as background noise and decided to watch The View.
So my question of the day is: Why in the world is Elisabeth Hasselbeck still on that show? She is SUCH A BITCH!
I don't care what your politics or opinions are, if you are a host on a talk show at least be kind to the person on your show. Kathy Griffin was on today and she was a total whore to her. I would understand if Kathy Griffin was being a bitch, but she wasn't. Elisabeth just turned totally hostile because Kathy was joking around about Elisabeth's heros....Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin. Kathy Griffin is a COMEDIAN! Let her tell a bloody joke!
A host is a host, whether it's on tv or in your home. Don't treat people like that when you are the host. Grow up Elisabeth. Barbara, you'd be a genius to can that beautiful girl's ass. I know I won't be watching The View again with her on it.

Way to go out with a bang Greys!

Okay, so I know I am a few days behind.
I just finished the season finale of Grey's Anatomy and HOLY CRAP! What an episode! I was DYING with the suspense!!!
If you haven't watched the episodes yet, STOP reading here as I am about to spoil it all....
  • I'm sad Merideth had a miscarraige. I would love a McBaby!
  • I am thrilled McDreamy is alive. I don't know what I'd do without his beauty on the show.
  • I still want Lexie to be with her professing her love for Alex was weird. I do like Alex though and I'm glad he's alive.
  • Owen and Cristina? Hmmm, I don't know about that one.
  • I was fine with Reed and Charles dying. Is that bad of me?
  • Yay! Callie and Arizona are back together!!! I love them as a couple. :)
  • Does this mean Jackson is here to stay (since he didn't die)? I hope so, he's fun to look at!

Okay, so what did you all think? Best episode ever? I think it's in the top 10 for sure!

Pink Living Rooms

There is no way in holy hell my husband would let me decorate with pink in our living room. My office is pink, but he didn't get a say in my office. :)
I could totally do a pink living room though!
Check out these beautiful rooms....


The photo below is from Better Homes and Gardens circa 1961. I would take this living room today! It looks great.

Cougar Town

Is it just me, or does this show keep getting funnier and funnier?
I seriously love it more each week.

Andy: It's never that hard for me.
Jules: That's what he said

Italian Pasta Salad recipe

Last Sunday, for Mother's Day, we had lunch with my fam. I made an Italian Pasta Salad because I knew my mom loves that salad.
I don't think I'd ever made this particular kind of salad before, and when I was looking for recipes none of them were really doing it for me.
So I made up my own recipe and I have to say, it turned out pretty great.
I don't know the exact measurements of what I used, but I'll make a good guess.
This made a pretty big salad, it fed 20 ish people & there were leftovers.

  • 2 boxes of Barilla Tri-Colored Rotini pasta. Cooked.
  • Several carrots sliced pretty thin. I used baby carrots & I sliced them the round way.
  • 1 jar Sundried Tomatoes in Olive Oil. I drained most of the olive oil first and used the sliced Tomatoes.
  • 2 stalks of broccoli crowns, cut into small pieces.
  • 1 bottle Italian Dressing. I bought Wishbone brand because it didn't have high fructose corn syrup (I was shocked other brands did, gross!). I actually bought 2 bottles and used about 1 1/4 bottles.
  • 3 small cans of sliced olives
  • Parmesan Cheese, grated. I used a small handful and then sprinkled some on top.

Cook pasta and then just mix all the ingredients together. It's best if it sits for at least a few hours before serving. I waited to add the Parmesan cheese until just before serving. The pasta soaks up the dressing, so that's why I ended up adding 1/4 of the second bottle just before serving.

This photo isn't my salad, it's from Crisco.

When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left,
and could say,
"I used everything you gave me."
