I showed you yesterday in my post about my trip to Trader Joe's the croissants I purchased. I let them rise and baked them. At first I was disappointed when I cut it open that there was a small amount of chocolate in the bottom layer of the croissant, but when I ate it, the amount of chocolate was the perfect contrast to the buttery layers.
I had a pretty productive evening. I was awake for about 21 hours before taking a nap and slept for only about 2 hours. The girls were gone, spending time together at the mall and then took in a movie (Gasp!) and didn't kill each other. I went downstairs and put the last coat on the upper cabinets we installed about a week and a half ago. Now we can go get the lowers and the counter top and put those in. I also organized the freezer. Lesson learned: never ask teenagers to take the groceries down and put away for you. If I didn't know better (and know how lacking their softball skills are) I would have sworn they did fast pitch with the chicken packages and ice cream containers. We now have all beef together, all pork, chicken, etc. Much easier to find things. I have to laugh at Dude. We were talking about stuff we need to get done before graduation-carpets, Goodwill drop, etc. I said "You know, we need to do a pantry challenge" and he replied "don't you think we have enough projects going on at one time? How many things do you think we can really accomplish before June?" I looked at him dumbfounded-WHAT? I had to re-state my question: I meant, I think we should make a plan to not buy any groceries except fresh produce and dairy for a certain amount of time since both the freezer and pantries are full. It was like Gilda Radner on SNL-"never mind".
And now, for a give-away.
I feel like a total grown up blogger now. I was contacted by the Country Bob's Inc. about doing a product review for them. You will remember that Michelle at http://www.lifelightlysalted.com/ had a give away from them last month. I have a few ideas swimming around my head about how I want to use the product and will post that soon. I need to find out how to use that random integer thing-y, but here is the way it will all play out. Leave a comment on this post about, wait for it~~~not what you are thinking........
"What songs should I put on my Ipod?" I'm in the process of losing some weight so I can fit into this adorable dress I bought for my daughter's graduation ceremony, and I need some rocking tunes that will get me through 30 minutes a day on my treadmill. I will select two winners via the random integer thing on Thursday April 9th and will post the winners that evening. If you want to do a shout out to your readers, post back a second time about the shout out and it will count for a second chance to win. No Twitter or Facebook or any of that. I can't figure out Twitter and my Facebook account is hosed up and no one there will help me :(
Good luck to everyone!
