TGIF!

Another week has flown by! I can't believe we are already into February, time is going by so quickly!

The Hubby and I have started bowling again. Our local bowling alley has a deal on Sunday's for $19.95 you get 2 hours on a lane. It's so much fun! 

The Hubby is just so good at it. I really can't compete with his high games. He got a 248 the other day....really?!? You haven't bowled in a year and you come out with a 248? I will say that I got my all time high game of 160 the other day! Whoop, whoop!

I am trying to convince the Hubby to do a Valentine's Day bowling event at our local bowling alley. It's some kind of Scotch Doubles tourney...the only problem is neither of us is very sure what that is or what to do!



We finished the basketball season this week. Now we just have the banquet and the Hubby will be done with 8th grade basketball. This year has worn me out.

Right now I am looking into starting to make all my own baking mixes and products. I am just as guilty as anyone for walking into the grocery store and buying something because it's convenient. 

However, if I just plan ahead I can make my own convenience food. I am hoping to start it at the end of the month. I am currently trying to cook our way through the pantry to start fresh. I found a great website to get ideas from, it's called Budget101.com

One of my favorite ways to cook is turning on my music and singing away while I cook or bake. Here is one of my new favorite songs! It's Boyce Avenue doing a cover of Journey's "Faithfully".



We were watching The Office again the other night, so I just have to leave you with a Michael Scott quote. I know we all feel like this sometimes! Happy Friday!


Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
