Storm Watch

Hello Bandits,

The storm has come and gone. Joe, Zoey and I ate, watched movies and cuddled up on the couch. A perfect way to spend a stormy day and night. Here is what we woke up to

This is the view from my office/craft room. That is our drive way below that I dug out this morning. My arms and back are killing me. I did manage to fit in some crafting today. I made some more doll pendants and a play set. Here are just a few the rest will be in the shop over the next week or so. I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner. I hope everyone enjoys the season!

Mmmm Cupcakes....

Mmmmm and they're peanut butter and jelly my bandit friends! It doesn't get better than that! I would love to makes these one day. I found them on Martha Stewart

I was in the mood to bake something today and since I wasn't ready to tackle these delicious little fellows I made some peanut brownies! They hit the spot with a nice glass of cold milk. I'll have to take a picture tomorrow for you dear reader, but trust me they were divine. Don't worry there's still some ready for consumption tomorrow.

If you live on the east coast then I hope you are ready for the first official snow storm of the year. It's supposed to start falling tomorrow night into Sunday which means a possible work from home day for me on Monday! Hubby and I are ready with a house full of food and movies from blockbuster. We'll be up early tomorrow to do some last minute running around gathering "supplies" for Christmas dinner. I don't want to leave it to last minute next week and have to fight crowds.

I guess we'll have a white Christmas after all. It's been quite a few years since NJ has seen one. I think I was a kid? Wherever you are dear reader enjoy your weekend.

Are you watching Jersey Shore???

I know you are. This train wreck is so bad it's too good not to watch. Even Joe my husband is hooked. I'm a born and bread NJ native, Joe is a born and bread NY'er, we're ashamed to say we have come across one or 2 of these himbo's and bimbo's, but please believe me this is only 10% of the population here. The other 80% of us don't talk or act this way. It's a terrible stereo type but I have to say damn entertaining.

My favorite messes are Mike "The Situation" which is how he refers to his abs (come on now. He thinks any girl will fall for him and according to him, he determines when they will ROTFL.

My next favorite mess is Nicole "Snooki" she is so delusional she thinks she is a little version of Kim kardashian, again ROTFL. The girl is orange from spray tanning herself, on top of that she uses bronzer. Kim Kardashian?? try Umpa lumpa.

If you aren't watching this show and love a good train wreck (Rock of Love and Flavor of Love - sorry flav and brett fans) check it out on MTV Thursday nights.

Those of you who don't live on the east coast please note not all NY and NJ people talk or act this way. Just my disclaimer.

Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Hello Bandits, I finally got to see New Moon today! I went with my dear friend and go to movie pal (when the husbands won't go) Dyana. LOVED IT! Better than the first Twilight. It was more accurate to the book than the first.

I've read all 4 books and just love them. After reading the 2nd book and now movie I was torn between who I like more Edward or Jacob. Both characters are so sexy. I think just as when I read the 2nd book I'm now on team Jacob. You just feel that pain he feels in his love and desire for Bella who in return loves and needs him but is Edwards soul mate.

I can't wait for the 3rd and 4th movies to come out. I hope they don't cut too much out from the books or change it around. They ran a preview of Sherlock Holmes. It looks awesome. It's on my list of movies to see along with The Lovely Bones, which is a book I've yet to read. I think it's next on my reading list.

If you are a Twilight fan and have both read and seen the movies, are you on team Jacob or team Edward?

My teeth hurt

Hey Bandits. I've been a tiny bit under the weather and busy at the same time. 1 week ago today I got my wisdom teeth pulled with pretty much little or no pain WELL.... I still have pretty much no pain but yesterday my lower left side of my face was a little uncomfortable, and as my husband so eloquently put it your "breath smells and your breath never smells" Thanks hon. I begin to think it's getting infected. I called my surgeon and the nurse assured me I'd be in excruciating pain and my face would be swollen. It's probably a dry socket???? She had me come in and she flushed it out and put a medicated gauze in the opening. Ah relief!

I kept it in until this afternoon, went back to the surgeons office where they took it out and showed me how to use a syringe to clean out the socket if food gets stuck in side.

Appprently a dry socket is when the scab that is forming in the hole loosens exposing the wound. All is well know and hopefuly soon this darn hole will close so I can eat normally again. I'm tired of soft mushy food LOL.

Now that I grossed you out. Enjoy your night. Oh more lovely doll pendants popped in the SHOP
