I'm A Flip Flop Enthusiast!

Okay, I'm addicted to flip flops. Lived half my life in the south and I'm part Indian so I prefer no flip flops at all but one has to do what one has to do and wear some sort of shoe.
Here's a quick photo of the flip flops that I wear to work/daily and are downstairs. I have an entire shoe rack upstairs for my "dress flip flops" and I was too lazy to go up there and toss them into the mix. Who doesn't like flip flops? What do you wear in the summer?

It's FRIDAY! Have a Super Weekend!!

Why o Why?

Someone please tell me why my boyfriend insists on sticking his tongue out when I TRY to take a picture of him. Actually, it's always on the second take. I say, "wait let me take one more" (for good measure) and this is when the tongue comes out. I'm not bothering with the second picture anymore. I'll have to make sure the first shot counts!

Happy Friday Eve!!

Danica Patrick is HOT!

We were blessed to be able to get to the track on Saturday morning just in time for the drivers meeting. We got to stand right in front of all of them. As you can see Danica was really paying attention to the track instructions because she was busy texting. Maybe she was getting the track instructions sent to her phone? I doubt it. She's still beautiful though! Ashley Judd's hubby Dario Franchitti is pretty easy on the eyes as well.

Milka Duno and Sarah Fisher. The "other" chick drivers.

The view from our seats! All of the cars were being pushed out in this photo!

LER and I at the track on Saturday during warm-ups.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Mr. Ashley Judd

I got to meet snap photo's of Ashley Judd and her husband Dario Franchitti while at the Indy 500 over the weekend. Actually the closest I got to them was about 10 feet away. I thought it was pretty cool! We had a blast. More photo's to follow. I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Weekend!

Happy Monday!

Can you believe it? Brooke Hogan's new music video

By the time your reading this we are just getting up after arriving at our hotel in Indianapolis at 2AM. The drive is 9 hours for us from Minneapolis to Indy. Any who!!!

This may shock some of you but this new music video belongs to Hulk Hogan's daughter Brooke. This song is a keeper in my book. She sounds awesome! I think the reason I like her is she sounds just like Janet Jackson whom I adore! I think we'll be seeing more of Brooke!

Have a great day. We are off to walk around at the Indy speedway and buy all of our collectible clothing and have some beers. Race day is tomorrow!

I hope to meet

and him too. (I'm a HUGE Colts Fan)

So I leave you with this!

Watch for us on ESPN. We'll be waving!

What the ????

I'm driving into my community last night and I come up on 8 Sheriff vehicles and 6 local cop cars surrounding one of the streets. That's a picture from my cell phone of half the cops. The other vehicles were up past the yellow townhouse.

I was SHOCKED because I was wondering what they were doing there. Was it some type of drill? Some sort of training exercise? Were they stopping a speeder? Nope. I had to drive past them because I live 2 streets down. As I drive past the street I see all of the officers with their guns and shot guns drawn pointing to a house across the street from them.

This is kind of what it looked like!

Holy SHIT I said to myself and hurried home to barricade myself in. Kidding about the barricade. Heck, I grab Luna and we walk up to check it out a little closer. We stood and watched with a few of the other curious neighbors. Finally I was bored and went home. Never did find out what in the heck it was all about. Maybe I should call the local PD. This was not normal for such a nice community in which I live.

Anything cool happen to you yesterday?

Happy Friday Eve!!

Trendy or Not?

Yesterday I saw 3 different woman wearing sunglasses that matched their cars.
White frames lady drove a white Suburban.
Yellow frame lady drove a yellow Sunfire.
Lastly, little miss red frame lady was driving a red Grand Am.
Am I missing something?
I'm lucky I guess because I drive a black CUV so every pair of my sunglasses match!
Think of the money I saved?

Are you seeing this new trend or is it just me?

Happy Wednesday!

Backyard Chickens

Welcome to Urban Chickens!
"Dedicated to promoting backyard chickens in urban residential landscapes"

It's the hot "cool" thing to do here in Minnesota. It's all "they" talk about. Those of us that live in the suburb's are buying and raising chickens. I love the little buggers and understand the new craze! Heck, we raised snow geese when I was little but we lived on a lake. Please refer to photo below!

What the heck, get out there and buy your chickens! I'm sure they'd enjoy those wooden playset's everyone seems to have in their backyard!

Would you support this new craze? Chicken vs the city.

Happy Monday!

Trash. Usually not this organized as I have depicted here. I am SO sick of seeing people casually toss trash out of their windows while driving. I was behind a chick the other day driving into the Target parking lot as she whips a soda can out her window. Mind you she drove right past the front entrance where there was a garbage can she could have deposited it into. A few weeks ago we were driving and saw two boys/skateboarder/hoodlums/teenagers (sorry I was profiling) walking along side of the road and one of them tosses their empty water bottle in the weeds. Once again, across the road from them was a Super America gas station and the last time I checked they too have garbage cans.

The only thing I toss out the window is things the birds can use ie; floss (they can use it for their nest because I've seen them), sunflower seeds (they eat them) etc... Oh my, I just realized I have been known to toss out a piece of gum. Crap.... I guess I litter too.

Cowguy told me today he tosses trash "In" his window but that's a whole nuther blog!

Do you EVER toss anything out your car window?

Vanity Plates

I love reading vanity plates. Thanks to all of you that pay the extra fee to own one. I do have a problem with the ones I don't understand your letters. Some make no sense at all. If I'm blessed with the opportunity to get stuck behind you at a light I have some time to "try" to figure it out. But if after 3 + minutes I can't figure it out I start getting mad and call you an idiot. I hope I'm not offending any of you that own a vanity plate that people can't figure out.

Sorry this one's already taken. And easy to understand.

Self explanatory!

Must be a very rich elementary school kid?

I'm guessing a nurse or a doctor on this one!

Disgruntled female?

Seems Dave has too much time on his hands and likes to golf!

See.... I have no idea what the message is here?

Take a crack at this one! Anyone?

Have a Great Tuesday

Wonders of the World!

You can tell it's Spring. Last night I witnessed a Mallard and her young jumping down off the curb and heading to the other side of the road. I was pleased to see the car that was coming at them stopped. Right in the middle of the road. This driver didn't care if she would be rear-ended. She was watching the same spectacular site as I was. If you've never stopped to watch this event you should. It's pretty cool!!

This is a Fat Free Zone!

aaaaaaahahahaha.........NOT! Well here in Texas, at my house it's not. Jennifer, the Minnesotian, is skinny from shivering all winter. Here in Texas, winter last about 27 minutes and then we head right into summer. But enough about the weather. It's Texas........need I say more?

I want to talk about banana pudding. Not the banana pudding you make from a box, but the real McCoy. My husband loves banana pudding. The kind his grandmother used to make. I have literally been trying to find a recipe like his grandmother's for many, many, many months. Last night I finally found it. It wasn't a written was a video and actually showed you how to make the stuff. Unfortunately he was talking so fast I only got part of the ingredients and then I dashed into the kitchen and started making it. There is one part where you stand in front of your hot stove and for 10 minutes you whisk until you think you're going to whisk your #$&) arm off. That's when I realized I must have done something wrong so I poured the whole thing down the sink. Ran back to the bedroom to watch the video again and realized I was doing it correctly. #&$)$#& $)($*$#!

The banana pudding that the guy was making included a meringue topping. HELLO! It's banana pudding. In Texas you don't put meringue on anything else you'll be hung from somebody's Mesquite tree. I ran back into the kitchen and started over. I'm going to all this trouble to make banana pudding that I don't even know if anyone will eat. Maybe the dog will like it.

Well, I finished it, popped it in the fridge and took it out a coupla hours later and fed it to my husband and all he did was moan and groan. I took that as a thumbs up. I tried it and I started moaning and groaning too!! It is A W E S O M E!

It's so great I wanna share the recipe with you guys (minus the meringue topping).

Things you'll be a needin:

2 Cups Whole Milk

2 Tbsp. butter

1 Cup of Sugar

2 Egg yolks

1/8 tsp. salt

1 tsp. Vanilla (or more if you want)

1/3 Cup Flour

4 Banana's, cut up

Vanilla Wafers

In a 9 x 13 casserole dish, cover the bottom with vanilla wafers and then cut up your banana's and place them evenly over the top of the vanilla wafers.

In a metal saute pan, over medium heat (maybe a tad higher), melt the 2 tbsp's. butter. Add milk, 2 egg yolks, 1 cup sugar and 1/3 cup flour. Whisk until it reaches a pudding stage. About 10 minutes. When thick and creamy, remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla; whisk until fully "incorporated" (I LOVE that word). Pour mixture over vanilla wafers and banana's and put in the fridge until pudding has set and is cool.

At this point, (before you put the pudding in the fridge) if you live anywhere north of Texas, you can make the meringue if'n you want to. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In an electric mixer, place the 2 egg whites and 1/3 cup of sugar. Beat on high until stiff peaks form. When done, take meringue and spread over pudding and kinda of splat (WOW! a new word!) the top of it to form peaks so it's purty. Place the casserole dish in the oven and brown the meringue. DON'T PUT IN THE OVEN AND WALK OFF. Trust me, you'll be sorry. Nobody's gonna get the warm fuzzies if you serve them a big heaping bowl of banana pudding with black #$&! all over it. Remove as soon as it's turned a golden brown.

Fix yourself and anyone else that's there a bowl and moan and groan and drowned yourself in heavenly bliss.

Little Buggers!

This my friends is my favorite bird. The Cardinal. I have two feeders out hoping for the chance to have them visit my house.

But these guys, (Red-Winged Blackbird) are hogs and are at the feeder most of the time. They even hang out in the tree next to the feeders and swoop down at the feeder if anyone else shows up.

Any suggestions as to getting rid of the blackbird's so I can attract OTHER kinds of birds?

Maybe I need to invest in a pellet gun?

Happy SITS Day and Thanks a Million Heather & Tiffany!
