It is starting to rain here in SoCal. This makes me happy. On my lunch break I just sit in the car (loaned to me from the BF's parents) and listen to the plunk of rain drops. It is wonderful. I love sunshine and get a little depressed when I can't go outside for long periods of time, but rain is wonderful in its own right.
Last weekend we had that "fancy" dinner party. That went over soooo well. We made Bacon wrapped Tator Tots for the appetizer, regular tots for the vegetarians that attended (sigh) The bacon tots were the favorite of the night. Then she made homemade mac and cheese with bread crumbs. SUPER Yummy! Main course was lemon pepper pork tenderloin. All in all I think we pulled off a stellar "fancy" dinner party.
Thursday after work I get home, check the mail and have a package from mom. WEIRD she didn't say she was sending me anything. So I grab the mail and do the thing that EVERYONE does when they get a package, I shake it. No clue so I shake it alll the way in to the house. Finally pop it open and this is what I find. CHEESE!! Not just any cheese, HOMEMADE chedder cheese from mom and dad's cows. <3 I haven't tried it yet but I am planning on making Chedder and Potato soup this week out of it.(Minus the ham) Can't wait!
We went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park this weekend. Super fun time!! We went with some friends of BF's and their kids. (2,8,11) They had memberships and let us use the guest passes so we got to go for FREE. That made the day even better.The kids were awesome! The little one can talk but she doesn't, the other two are boys and auto-cool. Hooray good parenting! Of course I had to shove my self in to a tiny space just because I could. =)
Tonight we are going to watch The Princess Bride! I'm stoked, BF hasn't ever seen the whole thing. On the topic of movies I want to see the new Footloose when it comes out. I know, I know it won't be like the original but you have to admit you are always a bit curious when they release a remake of something good.
Guess that is all the rambling I will be doing for now. Till next time....
