A few things

1. I made these homemade lara bars...find recipe HERE. Seriously! DELICIOUS! All it has is dates, nuts, vanilla, and cocoa powder. Seriously...wonderful. Can't wait to try some of her other recipes.

2. I am SO EXCITED for Hunger Games. It's pretty pathetic how excited I am. I look up stuff online all the time! And guess what?! I'm going to the midnight premier...SO happy about that!

3. I got an early birthday present from Clay and it's a tv on my wall of my sewing room! I'm so excited about this because I love to watch Gilmore Girls and the OC while I sew (two best shows ever). And it's hooked up to the cable thingy so I can watch other things like American Idol. My fav's so far are Deandre, Colton, and that one girl who is blonde and has a raspy/adele-like voice who was in the bottom last week. I still haven't seen all of them though. But I feel like there's a bit too much, "Love your story and personality" instead of, "You have talent"...you know? I mean...he seems like a loveable guy but...the gentle giant guy? I can't remember his name. His voice...uhhh...sorry, but would never be famous in my lifetime. I think it'd be nice in a choir or something but not american idol.

4. One of my best friends growing up had a baby! Jenni! She is SO CUTE! Holy smokes. I'm so happy for her.

5. The other day I told Clay, "Man my face sure is looking good...I used to have so many big zits, now I have none!" Well...guess what showed up this morning? A BIG FATTY ON MY CHIN! Ugh. I thought I was grown up...not quite I suppose.

That's all for now.

OH YEAH- I decided. I'm going to have cheesecake on my birthday. And bread! I am so excited. But I'm just gonna get one slice at the restaurant, and not have any leftovers. It'll be great.

zits. ugh. story of my life. people always ask if my boys are nephews, my brothers or if I'm babysitting. I tell James I think it's because no "grown-up mommy" would have such bad acne. It's the scars that get me. Ah well. James and I can't wait for hunger games! Hope it's as exciting as the build up is!

Those do look yummy. You are so cool for finding so many yummy sugar free treats. That's so awesome that you have a TV in your sewing room now. That sounds fun. I'm sorry you have zits. Did that honey thing you tried ever work? They'll go away eventually. :) Love you!

I think the bars look really good. I think it is wonderful that you are so great at doing these recipes without sugar. I am really limited right now, so I do little experiments. One of these days soon. I think it is wonderful that you have a wall tv in your sewing room so nice. I miss you love you so much and I think moving to CA sounds fun. DO IT!!!! hugs

Those bars look gooooood! I want to try them for treats. I am hoping to watch idol again..if the storms will stop! I looked at that girls sight, I thought we were chocoholics! It was fun. Your dad will get an occasional zit, I think it is stress! I'm excited for you to get a TV in your sewing room on the wall! I need to think about that... love you!!

Jenni said...

Excellent choice to have the cheesecake! You'll love it! There is a hunger games preview on the TV RIGHT NOW and I have chills. I'm TOTALLY as excited as you, so you're not silly! Thanks sooooo much for your excitement about Harlow!! We have to take her to meet her great grandparents in IF one of these days, so we have to meet up!!!Love you!

Oh, and TV in your sewing room, BEST IDEA EVER!

I hope the bread and cheesecake are everything you hope for and MORE. I'm glad your face has cleared! With the exception, of course. It will pass and back to clear skin. I know, I didn't clear up 'till my 23rd year? And that was WITH medication. I went to a dermatologist and he fixed it all. I'm so glad you watched the OC. I've had a craving. It's been years. It's one of those "bad" shows, so it makes me feel better you're watching it 'cause I don't think you're bad. That is COOL you made LARA bars. Those are great.
