Lately (Instagram Style)


In the last week (or so):

I re-staged my counters to accommodate the KitchenAid........


That baby can shred chicken in seconds!

*   *   *   *

Sir Chester wore a bandana.......


He was not a fan.

*   *   *   *

I surprised Whit with a birthday message on Instagram.......


With the help of a particular student.

*   *   *   *

The mister surprised me with a coffee date........


That is an Oreo Latte, my friends.  It was i.n.s.a.n.e.

*   *   *   *

And finally.

I began one of my favorite winter rituals..........


Monday nights with The Bachelor and a fire.  Wearing sweats and ugly socks.

From the hours of 7 to 9 CST, you know where to find me every Monday evening for the next two months.

Viewing quality television.

I am not ashamed.

  3. My kitchen aid needs to be displayed better and I agree the chicken shredding is amazing! We have been getting reruns of the bachelor and I admit to watching it and laughing at the moments knowing they're going home!

  9. Love it! Poor Sir Chester. Your kitchen and red kitcheAid are the perfect pair, the look amazing together. I love that you used Whitney's son to make your birthday message even more special. And, I am jealous of that cozy fire. I have some ugly socks, can I come hang out on Mondays with you?

  19. I love the glass bowl Kitchen Aid mixers, but I'm afraid the bowl would be awfully heavy. Of course right now I'm just happy with my hand me down KA, I've been waiting for my mom to upgrade for years so I could have the old one.

  20. Confession: I got my Kitchen Aid at my wedding shower last June and still haven't opened it up. (since we're about to remodel our kitchen) Maybe now's the time!
