The Hot Mess Life

Can't Make This Stuff Up

It was a great weekend, football, family and food.  Could it get any better.  Oh yes, oh yes it can.

While some of the family was over a woman came to the front door.  She was deaf (I assume) since she was motioning that she needed a pen and pad of paper.  So I grabbed the items and brought them to her.  This is what she handed back to me.

Say whats!?!?!  How about a big NO?!?!  The thing that makes me laugh was that she gave me a dirty look and just went to the next house.

My sister in law asked, "Isn't this how murder mystery movies start?"  This woman was not the most approachable looking person if you get my drift.

Oh well, it's stuff like this that makes life interesting right?

What the What!?!?! Wednesday

I was tempted to just post the picture and not write anything.  Seriously does this really need an explanation?

How violently do you eat soup that you need a hair shield.  Don't get me wrong, I love slurping down a huge bowl of noodles, but I apparently am a tame noodle slurper since I don't have dripping wet noodle broth hair afterwards.

The worst thing about this picture is every time I look at it, I want noodles.  It's 8am and I want a huge steaming bowl yummy noodles.

I love the changing of summer to fall.  Especially since I loathe summer.  I love the cooler weather, changing of the leaves, warm apple cider, pumpkin patches and football.

I also love the warmer smells for fall.  I get to change my candles to some yummy cinnamon spice or pumpkin vanilla scents.  I also take my bi-yearly visit to Bath & Body Works.  Oh yes.  It is on!

I swear I smell so many different kinds of body sprays that my nose hairs are probably burnt off by the time I leave the store.  But I just love picking out a cozy warm smell to take me through the fall and winter.  The warm vanilla sugar or brown sugar and fig.  Can you smell what I'm laying down?

Can't wait for the weekend to venture out and grab my fall/winter scent of the year.  Oh, and grabbing some maternity clothes, I apparently am not going to be one of the cute basketball bellies that I had so hoped for.  Only 4 months and I only have two pairs of pants left that I can button.  (I say button but that doesn't mean they are comfy.)

What the What!?!?!? Wednesday

There are a lot of crazy things in this world.  I figured why not give it a day on the blog.  For the inaugural What the What!?!? Wednesday I present to you:

The Funnel Bacakonator.

That's right, a funnel cake topped with bacon.  Sold at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

 Now, don't get me wrong, I will polish off a funnel cake like no one's business.  But, to be honest I'm not the biggest bacon fan, so this does not look good at all.  Nope.  Not good.

I am going to rank this food dish  meal heart attack infused item up there with deep fried butter.  Down right nasty.  Mr. Bacokonator if your nasty.

Baking Up A Storm!

Whew! Let me tell you all, I have been baking like a mad woman and I am tired!

I love to bake, and I love trying new recipes.  So when this opportunity came for me, I couldn't resist.  It's a very complicated recipe and has taken a lot out of me.  I will tell you it is the hardest thing I have ever made.

The recipe is mixture of two ideas from two different cultures.  Korean and American.  I know it will come out beautifully.  So, after combining the ingredients I bake at 98.6 (it's a slow bake recipe) for 9 months and then viola, on April 15, 2012 the bun will be ready to come out of the oven!

Yes peeps I am with child, four months along and I am so excited!!!  It was by far the hardest secret I have ever had to keep! I can't wait to share this experience with you!

Oh, by the way, while I was at the Warrior Dash doing this:

Yes, that is me running through fire. 
Little did I know, I was three weeks along with this:

Which means my baby is gonna be born wearing this:

Great Weekend!

Hello loverlies!

How was your weekend?  I had a great weekend!  Made some great food, baked and found some amazing clothing deals.  It was also an awesome football weekend.  All my teams won!  Woohoo!!!

I attempted my first yarn wreath and I think it came out pretty good.  I will definitely be making more of these soon!

I also had the pleasure of dog sitting for a friend.

Isn't she the cutest?
Oh, I should mention, Bella and Snoopy are an item.

Here they are just hanging out watching football with me.  Now Snoopy is 5 years older than Bella, so there is that little bit of controversy there.  But, if they love each other who are we to judge.   

As for my awesome clothing deals, have I mentioned how much I LOVE clearance deals?  $5 flats & $10 jacket from Old Navy, $5 & $6 skirt and dress and a few $3 layering tanks from Target and two $8 shirts from GAP.  I mean come one people!!!  All these I can wear through the fall and winter season coming up so I am stoked!

Hoping this work week flies so I can have another great weekend!  We are planning on going to the Renaissance Festival, gonna be chowing down on the awesomley huge turkey legs! Can I get a Yumm Yumm and a Woop woop!!!
