Sundays are my favorite days.


But not this Sunday.
I had to go to work instead of play hangman with husband during sacrament meeting.
This is just blasphemous! bleh. I don't like this.
At least we were able to go to the temple last night. Boy I love the temple.
I also fall more and more in love with Adam every time I go.
I highly recommend getting married.
Ok-enough gush.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
Hopefully someone will make it up to me and play scrabble tonight.
i'm feelin' wordy.

mexican wedding cookies

My Mom wanted me to make these cookies for a shower she is hosting tonight. My first thought was, "sick. no chocolate, no peanut butter, not chewy-not my type of cookie."
These buggers are dilectable. divine. and delish.
and the batter is better than any chocolatey-fudgey-cookie dough i've ever tried. And i've tried a lot.
Not only are these easy to make, you'll be speaking perfect spanish by the time you pull them out of the oven.
I used this recipe.
ay carumba!

Got Globe?

I am starting to collect these.
You can imagine my delight as I found one beaming on the top shelf in one of the closets at my in-laws. Sheer excitement.
I even told Troy that for every globe he found me, I would treat him to a breakfast at Little America.
I realized this was a mistake.
Knowing Troy, I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up at my door with 24 Globes.
That's a lot of breakfast.

9 by design

I don't care if i'm the bazillionth person to blog about it--Adam and I are hooked. So is Maureen, who calls the show either '7+2' or 'Mindless by Design'.
she still doesn't know what it's called.
Not only do we want to start tearing down walls and purchase furniture from parisian antique shops-as of yesterday, we want to have seven children and name them:

Raphael Buie
Brad-Pitt Buie
Angelina-Jolie Buie
Spacebar Buie
Captain Buie
Ajax Buie
Juicy Buie

Watch the show to see what we mean....
you'll LOVE it!

taxes are giving me nightmares


We had a fun weekend in Midway eating, partying, and cooing over babies. I even prepared my lesson for Sunday and brought cookies for all the girls, only to realize as I was handing them out that it was fast-Sunday. Apparently i'm the devil. One girl really let me know it too. Sunday and Monday I cried because, well, it was that time of month and I was doing taxes. Not a good combination. This lead me to have nightmares last night-but can I tell you how wonderful it is to have someone to burrow under when you are having nightmares??? My poor husband.

I feel like I apologize to my newby spouse at least 7 times a day. He is so nice, and I am, well, the devil. I am glad he doesn't regret marrying me when I break down in tears while doing taxes or throw a tantrum because he wants to buy a Volvo Cross Country Wagon. (but c'mon- since when did I marry a 50-year old woman who teaches yoga and keeps dogs caged in the back of her car??) He is always so good to me and tickles my back and tells me that everything is going to be ok. because lets be honest--when you are on your period doing taxes, it seems like nothing is ever going to be OK. Thank goodness I have him, because if I didn't, i'd probably be looking for comfort in a tub of red vines.

pass the oat bran

I've never been a big breakfast person, but lately i've noticed how a good, healthy breakfast gives me the energy to start a new day.
This morning I had an affair with my breakfast. Soo good and down-right good for you!
April 2010 017
April 2010 014
Whole wheat toast, banana, Adam's natural peanut butter, and last but not least, that bucket-o-goodness on the far right is our family size jar of oat bran.
It's high fiber content is very beneficial and contains protein and vitamins-- Not to mention, it's great for your HeArT. So in other words--pass the oat bran!
April 2010 020
Sprinkle it on your chicken, oatmeal, lollipop, what-have-you for me, i'll stick with whole wheat toast.

gimme a loofah.

I never started using body wash until I got married and found out my husband used a loofah religiously. "How femmy!" I thought.
I should give it a try. I am a girl after all.
So, as I was shopping at Sephora this past weekend in Las Vegas, I came across philosophy body wash and it sparked my interest. I must try. I know, I know, i'm prolly the last person on the planet to use any of philosophy's products.
One of the scents was called, "Lavender Pound Cake". Sounds delicious, but I don't know how sexy and slender I would feel lathering my body with a wash that has the words "Pound cake" in it. I think i'd walk out of the shower feeling stuffed and 10 pounds heavier. I dunno.
I'll settle for apricots & cream.
It looks so good, let's hope I don't try eating it.

The snow is making me crazy:


and makes me do strange things like prance around the house pretending i'm a Jetson.

Is anyone else getting Chinese comments on their blog that lead to naughty Asian sites???
Cuz I do. Quite frequently,
and it makes me want to karate chop their heads off.
