Happy Sunday TKW Family! WOW, March already or as Mr. Fatanbulous calls it his “birthday month”. Yes his birthday is at the end of the month however we tend to pretty much celebrate it the entire month. This means whatever he wants to eat, I make. Where ever he wants to go, we go (yes including the home improvement stores..ugh) and he gets full control of the remote. It’s not bad though as we tend to, now, like most of the same things. It’s funny as when we first met we could not have been more polar opposites. I’d say cat he’d say dog. I’d say snow and he’d say beach. For a while, truthfully, it worried me because we were so incredibly opposite. I mean we still have a lot of differences – I still want a cat and pig and he’s like “not gonna happen in my lifetime toots!”. But I’ll win when we move. He’s super into politics where I’m like “can’t we just watch Discovery or Food Network?”.  But yes it did concern me when we first started dating. I mean spending your life with someone who is so opposite from you can either be a positive experience or one that, honestly, will fail. It would fail as you would never see eye to eye, and you’d have pretty much nothing in common. Where’s the fun in that?

However one thing with us is that we communicate openly about everything. I told him that this worried me and he said something to me that I’ll never forget. He said “Baby it’s like this. I see us being opposite as a great thing. You force me to open my eyes and ears to listen to opposing views and opinions. You educate, you challenge me and you bring a whole different perspective to my life. You make me a more well-rounded, better person. Why wouldn’t I want that in my life?!”  Seriously I hit the jackpot with this guy! But he’s right. As long as you’re willing to listen and discuss it can make you a better person. And yes, this works on pretty much every scenario.

Now, after being together all these years I see those, once concerning differences, either no longer there or insignificant. He compliments me as I him. However this month will be rough as that will mean at least 10-15 trips to the Home Improvement stores, pasta pretty much every night (along with a real meal), crepes on the weekend and politics or the discovery channel on the tvs. Do you celebrate your birthday ‘month’ as well? What are some of your favorite things to do/eat?

Speaking of birthdays, I want birthday cake today! LOL

Happy Sunday TKW Family from a very swamp-like Pittsburgh!  Dear Lord it’s been raining here non-stop I swear for weeks!  Now normally our rainy season isn’t until June/July where it practically rains all month-long but for it to happen in most of February, this is unusual. The ground is so over saturated that now water is just pooling on top of the grounds in folks’ yards. I wouldn’t even dare step foot in my yard for literally sinking down! And driving on the roads here…god don’t even try it. We are so overladen with potholes that it’s a hazard to drive. But now that they are all full of water you really are taking a gamble with your tire, rim and alignment when you drive as while you may think you’re just hitting a puddle when in fact you’re hitting a crater-sized pothole.

So needless to say last week we spent it building an ark, gathering up the animals 2-by-2.. LOL It’s funny as every time I think of that I think of Noah I get flashbacks from the Evan Almighty movie and the “Building an Ark for Dummies”. Steve Carrell is truly awesome in that movie! And hello!!!  Morgan Freeman as God… CLASSIC!  He and James Earl Jones have THE BEST Hollywood voices! It’s funny as Steve Carrell is who made the whole Bruce Almighty for me as I’m not a fan of Jim Carey at all. I just can’t get into his type of comedy. Speaking of movies?  What’s the last movie you saw?

Yesterday we spent the day at with the Fantabulous in-laws. Always an amazing time. Mama Fantabulous wanted a night off from cooking so the 4 of us opted to hit up a local pizza place by them. It wasn’t bad; friendly people and the pizza was good. But I just am not a fan of going to a sit down pizza place and being given real silverware but paper plates. It just seems wrong. I mean either go full-fledged disposable utensils and plates or give me stuff you have to wash.

Seriously weekends need to be 3 days long

“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.” Seriously I feel like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz after these past 2 weeks. Folks when I say I now know what hell is truly like, believe me. I have never, in my life, been as sick as I was for 3 weeks with a severe upper respiratory infection and bronchitis. But what made it a bajillion times worse is that I had to travel for 2 of those weeks. The first week I had to stay in a hotel up at my office for the first week as we had a 5-day long summit which required us to be there a good 12 hours a day. And since I live about 1.5-2 hours away with traffic I was truly unable to drive the distance so I had to pay for a hotel. No, work didn’t pay for it. Let’s not go there as that’s a very, VERY touchy spot. I did it for my own safety. I then got home on a Friday night only to have to scramble, while on my 2nd round of meds and being forced by the doctor to have chest x-rays to see if I had pneumonia (good news I didn’t), to pack and try to make Mr. Fantabulous (who was still sick himself) food for the week as I had to fly out to San Diego butt-early (technical time) Sunday morning for the week.

I. AM. EXHAUSTED. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. I’m just done. These past 2 weeks honestly pushed me to my breaking point. It got so bad that literally a few nights while out in Cali I called Mr. Fantabulous in tears. Work just broke me. Like my spirit is broken.

Thing is, I’m not one to really get down or even depressed really. But right now I just feel disconnected if that makes sense. I think it’s at the point where everything is just getting to me. The house still isn’t done. It’s like one thing after the other after the other is preventing us from our goal of getting it on the market this April. Maybe it’s possessed? LOL

It’s one of those days where I just need a hug

Top Loved Recipes of 2017

You liked. You shared. You tagged. You Instagrammed. You tweeted. These are the top loved recipes of 2017 that YOU loved the most!

This is one of those posts that always brings a smile to my face and honestly, helps me more than you’ll ever know. This gives me an idea on what you guys are and are not into. I get insight on what types of recipes you want to see and maybe less of ones that you don’t. I have a TON of recipes for 2018 already – yes, even 1 day into the year and a bunch of ideas for new recipes thanks to looking at these results.  My notes include:

♥ More Pressure Cooker recipes
♥ More Sheet Pan Recipes
♥ Dear Lord woman, give us more pizza recipes (loved that request!)
♥ More family-style meals and healthy weekly meal prep ideas

Got it and that’s what I plan on doing!

Last year was SUCH a fun year for me. I started working with a bunch of new clients while creating even more deliciousness with those that have been with me since the beginning. I wish you guys could see my notebooks of recipes that I still have yet to share. I literally have enough written up (and most photos taken) to issue a cookbook. Speaking of… yes, I really, REALLY want to do that but I need a publisher for that as I’m not sure how to go about doing it myself. So if you’re in the business or have connections, let’s work together!
Farewell to 2017 and let’s EAT in 2018!

Santa’s coming, Santa’s coming, Santa’s coming!!! I don’t care what age I am, I still become that 4-year-old little girl at Christmas who giggles at the sight of Santa, leaves cookies and milk out for him and plans her evenings around what Christmas shows are on. I can remember when I was little it was a big deal when the Christmas shows were on. We’d have an early dinner, our home work would be done, baths were had and jammies were on. As soon as 8pm hit, we’d all gather around our console television and watch the classics.  Nowadays we have DVRs, blue-rays and “on demand” but there’s just something a bit more magical about watching it on ‘live’ tv with the rest of the world.

So how many of you are Christmas eve shoppers? Hey don’t fret it – I do it but not for presents. 99.9% of the time I’m that girl at the grocery store who ran out of milk, butter or something important needed for dinner. I actually went to Kohl’s yesterday and was surprised that it was pretty empty. I went in, grabbed what I needed and didn’t wait in line at all. Odd, I know!

This past week I was pretty much down for the count the first 4 days. I had a nasty, nasty head cold/sinus infection that was so bad I actually went to see my dentist as I thought I cracked a root. Thankfully the chompers are all ok and here the pain I was feeling was called “referred” pain thanks to the lovely sinus infection. But what’s odd is that I lost my voice for 2 days. Oh trust me, Mr. Fantabulous wasn’t complaining too much lol
