Friday Randoms

Two weeks in a row. I have bumped my Thursday randoms to Friday. Other posts took precedence. And maybe I will make this a trend. I feel as though lots of things seem to happen on Thursdays, and then I can't talk about them until the following Friday.

No promises. Just throwing it out there.

Randoms? Short and sweet today. I have a lot going on. P.S. Next week is the home tour!


Last weekend, Andrew and I went out to dinner with a friend of mine and her boyfriend. It was the first time meeting the BF of hers, and it was a very nice dinner. We all enjoyed ourselves, had a few good laughs, and drank a good amount of cocktails. Although, I have to say mine were not doing their job. Two tall glasses of vodka cranberry and I still see straight. So we have to make up for it the next time we get together.
For the first time in {almost} 4 years of working, I have never messed up my schedule and came in on a day that I wasn't to be working. But last night? I did just that. And of course, the one night that they don't need, I come in. So as I am walking out the door to go home {I should have ran}, I run into a nurse that was walking in, who so happened to have an awful night the night before, and begged for me to work for her. I was already there, hell, why not.

And on this awful day, I experienced the biggest jerk EVER. More on that later.

I was sitting here typing this post. And since I have ADD, my attention span is just about nothing. So I decide to "browse the internet"... aka shop. I start at zulily. Then I head over to Totsy. Two of my favorite mama/baby sites. And then I decide to look at my Totsy credit {for shats and giggles}... only to be stunned by a $700.00 credit. Um hello Elliana Christmas shopping. And my nephews. They are set! They have the cutest stuff on sale right now too. Baby piano's, baby aviators, summer shoes, you name it! Gah. LOVE. And if you are a new member, click this link and get free shipping on your first order!
Speaking of Totsy. Using my credit, I just stocked up on New Balance leggings, lounge pants, and tanks! Most everything is 50%. Plus, like I mentioned earlier, if you are a new member, you get free shipping on your first order. I also bought a baby processing food center {for next baby}, maxi dress, and stuff for E. Go check it out for yourself.
 The count is in guys. 635 love stories. I have no words for this. Speechless. I took an idea and you guys made it happen. And although I planned to go through each and every single one and comment on each one, life just doesn't allow that. So in the next month, I will just bounce around saying hello :)  . I hope you guys enjoyed reading the love stories as much as I have!

Thank you again. And if you haven't hopped around, go ahead and do so, I left the link-up open for now!

Focus your eyes on that scrumptious pork chop on that plate. Because it is the best thing I ever did taste {of a pork chop}. I tried this recipe last week, and we {husband and I} instantly fell in love. It is the perfect mixture of sweet and spicy.
You can find the recipe here on my pinterest. If you don't like spicy, I would suggest omitting the red pepper, or cutting it in half. People who have tried that say that it was great also! Let me know if you try it :)    I'm making it again next week {because I have to wait 2 weeks to repeat a recipe, haha!}


Speaking recipes of recipes, I feel as though I have shared a lot with you guys lately, and was hoping to have a place on the blog where they are easily accessible to the public. What do you guys think of me adding a RECIPE TAB to my navigation bar with my recipes and then updating it weekly with recipes that I have tried, etc, and keep it in some sort of organized fashion. Thoughts?
