As I mentioned before... I can be a complete procrastinator. Giveaway winners will be posted later today or tomorrow. I didn't forget!

:: Patty Young Clover Dot in Lime $5.00 per yard
:: Heather Bailey Tiled Primrose in Celery $5.00 per yard

My boyfriend and I have been making a big effort to spend a lot of time together and do things that we've been putting off. Hanging out with our friends something we always seem to put off. Steven, my boyfriend, work long hours usually 7:30 am - 8 ish pm. After work he's been so tired we hardly go out or have people over. Things are changing!

Friday night we went to a BBQ. I tried to Hooka for the first time! It was interesting! The food was yummy and the company was delightful as well.

Tonight we're having a puppy play date! I will post pictures of that soon!

Tuesday we're heading over to DISNEYLAND! It's our first trip to Disneyland together. I'm so excited.

Oh! And I wanted a distraction for while Steven in in Japan for December and I found one! I got another serving job at Lazy Dog Cafe! It's a new restaurant in Santa Clarita that opens in December. As long as your dog is on a leash, you can bring your furry friends and eat on the patio with them! Lazy Dog Cafe will even cook your dog an unseasoned chicken breast for his/her dinner! How fantastic is that?

First of all, I LOVE the [[HUGS]]!! Thanks friends! Special thanks to Liberty to helped me get a move on this morning!

My boyfriend was presented with this amazing job opportunity. Basically he will be getting paid to travel all over the world and learn how to run a very profitable business. Bad news, he will be living in Fresno for the first 2 years (which is 3 hours away from me) and a bulk of that time will be spent out of the country. His first trip is to Japan for 3 weeks in December.

This is a great opportunity for him! He's been waiting for this family friend to call him for over a year with this job offer. I have to let him go. It wouldn't be fair otherwise. Growing up I have had family and ex-boyfriends drag me down and tell me I couldn't do the things I wanted to do. I've had family tell me that my dreams and goals were worthless and I needed new ones. I will never allow this to happen to anyone else... ever! I'm giving my boyfriend the push to take this job so he can be happy and hopefully secure our future financially. It's a big leap for us. It means us being together probably only a few days a month (not more than 7 days most likely).

This means...
:: cooking for one
:: dog walks by myself
:: an empty bed
:: no one to help wash the top of my car
:: no one to go to the grocery store when I forgot something
:: no one to cuddle with
:: no good night kisses
:: no one to visit me at work when I'm at the end of my sanity
:: no breakfast in bed

The bright side...
:: laundry for one
:: the doggies will be in the bed
(that's all I have for now)

It's an adjustment. He will probably move by the end of November which doesn't give us much time. I can't move up there with him... at least, not yet. My family and friends are here. We just moved and have the world's best roommates. My job is here. And I have some friends that really need all the support in the world and I will not abandon them!

Anyhow, fabric deals for today!!!

Serving story of the day

Let me just say...

It's obvious that if you complain about your meal, you're fishing for free food. Today I served an older, single lady. She sat down, ordered, and started eating her meal. When I checked up on her she said everything was fine. About 10 minutes later everything was still fine. When she ate 9/10 of her salad she says, "I've been here at least 20 times and this is the only time I am highly dissatisfied! The salad is so overdressed I can't taste anything but blue cheese!" I apologized, asked her if I could bring out anything else, and told her I'd let the manager know.

She then said, "No, no, no. I happen to adore your manager and this is not his fault! This is feedback for you and whoever made the salad!" She had an annoying arrogance about her. I mean... how is telling me the salad sucks going to fix anything is I don't tell the manager???? Well, I told the manager and he talked to her....

He said she didn't want a free meal and she wasn't complaining to get free food (yeah right! The manager gave her a card for a free meal next time she comes back and she accepted it!) When I went back to the table she said, "You shouldn't have told the manager!!! You really embarrassed me!"


I don't know what to say about that. If you complain... you probably want someone to fix the problem... Don't be annoying like her when you eat out!

On a completely different note, my brother's dinner party was yummy yummy! I ended up making Madelines, Chocolate Chip cupcakes, and Raspberry Sorbet!

Whoa! I was re-reading my previous entry and was overwhelmed by TYPOS! Sorry about that! It's unacceptable from a future teacher, grammar loving, wanna-be-perfectionist to have multiple typos!

So so so so many things on my mind!

1. I did it! I made madelines and they're quiet yummy! The only set back... I was short on Vanilla extract but found an interesting substitute... MAPLE SYRUP!

2. I bought a cupcake book from Martha Stewart. I'm going to be ambitious and try to make tiramisu cupcakes, madelines, and raspberry sorbet for my brother's dinner party!

3. There were A LOT of lame people at work today! I'll spare you the annoying server stories. I'm trying to leave work at work and not take home any baggage.... haha.. riiiiiiight!

4. My boyfriend is leaving Saturday for a cike ride from San Francisco to LA. It's 7 days and it's going to be exhausting for him... anywhere from 70-90 miles per day! I'm talking bicycle here... not motorcycle. I bought him a whole bunch of GU and energy boosting stuff! I hope it helps!

5. I just received the doggie sack from ChillyPaws!

I'm making buffalo wings for dinner! YUM! Here's how I make it:

:: Toss chicken wings in vegetable oil, garlic salt, and pepper
:: Bake in oven at 400 degrees (till cooked through and slightly browned)
:: For the last 10-15 min I turn the oven to broil
:: In a sauce pan melt butter and combine with Franks Hot Sauce
:: Toss wings in sauce!

Yummy Yummy!!! I eat them with white rice and tonight we'll probably have some grilled corn on the cob!
