Turning 30 and random thoughts

SO my hubby turned 30 on the 18th! In my valentine's day post I told y'all how I fed into his video game obsession and got him a wireless keyboard for his playstation. Today at a friend's house he received the bluetooth headset for the playstation as well so he is good to go. We just returned home from our friend's at exactly 12:37am and he is already turning on the tv to try out his new toy

Oh well, I can't complain too much. You only turn 30 once! Yesterday I took M out to a nice dinner for his bday and we had planned on going to see Shutter Island but weren't able to make the 7:35 showing.We didn't want to go to a later showing since I work at 8 Saturday mornings so tomorrow we are going to see it with some friends!

Today I worked 8-2:30 and then went with the girls to this pottery place called Just claying around. We each picked out a piece of pottery to paint and glaze. I chose a plate and am very excited to pick it up in a week. I will wait to show you picture's or explain how I decorated it until I pick up the finished project.

Some of you may remember my friend who went into labor at 26 weeks and then again at 29 weeks. Thank you all so much for your prayer's and well wishes for my friend. I have received many comments and private emails about her. She is doing well and has reached the 32 week mark!! We have been trying to go over to her house at least one day during the weekend so that we can keep them company. M and her hubby play Call of Duty and her and I sit and chat. Tonight they had some of our other friend's over and we enjoyed a night of relaxing and good company.I am going shopping tomorrow to get stuff to make her a diaper cake. Since this is her second child she is not having a shower but I wanted to do something special for her. I cannot wait to make it and give it to her!!

Next weekend we our having a joint bday party for the hubs and I at our apartment. I turn 26 on the 26th so on Saturday the 27th we are having our closest friends over for a celebration!! If any of you have any good appetizer or finger food recipes let me know! I am always looking for some new recipes to try out!

Hope you all are having an amazing weekend so far!!


  1. My hubby LOVES call of duty! It is a weird, crazy obsession of his, and sometimes, I too, feed into it! Glad to hear your friend is doing well :)

    we hope to see shutter island tomorrow as well!

  2. sounds like the hubby had a great b-day and I can't wait to hear about the big b-day bash coming up. I'd forgotten that Shutter Island is out now. I've been wanting to see that!

  3. Glad your hubby had such a good birthday!!

    For recipes, this is SO not healthy, but SO fabulous, especially if you are a fan of buffalo wings.

    Buffalo Wing Dip
    2 large cans chicken breast
    2 packages of cream cheese
    1 bottle of ranch dressing
    1 bottle of buffalo wing sauce
    1 pound shredded cheese (she suggested half cheddar and half pepperjack)
    salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.

    Saute the chicken in a little bit of oil (seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic powder) until warm. Remove from heat and add cream cheese. Stir until incorporated. Stir in bottle of ranch. Stir in bottle of wing sauce. add 1/2 the cheese. Pour into baking dish, and top with remaining cheese. bake at 350 until cheese is brown and bubbly.

    Hope you enjoy! :) It's great on tortilla chips, french bread, ritz crackers, pretty much anything and everything.

  4. You should check out DAR's spinich artichoke dip! Delish!

  5. Oh my goodness the hubby and I want to go see shutter island also we also want to see the Crazies. Glad to hear your friend is doing well.

  6. Glad your friend is going well...what wonderful news! Hope the birthday celebrations continue to go well!

  7. I'm glad your friend is doing better.

    How exciting for your birthday! Here's a really easy and good recipe I make for get-togethers all the time (and there have never been any leftovers):

    Onion Soufflé Dip

    1 medium onion
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    3 (8 oz.) packages of softened cream cheese (I use Neufchatel to cut on calories)
    2 cups parmesan cheese
    1/2 cup mayonnaise

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking dish (I use a pretty pie dish) with non-stick cooking spray. Sautee the onion in olive oil, and then mix all ingredients (onion, cream cheese, parmesan cheese and mayonnaise) in a bowl until well combined. Transfer mixture to baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes (until hot and bubbling). Serve warm with Ritz crackers.
