Friday Things

2 Nov

Hey all! Sorry I haven’t posted the last few days, it has been crazy around these parts.

As I said the other day, we are in the process of packing and moving so things are a little bit hectic. I got home from work last night and cleaned and packed like a maniac and got so much done. Before I knew it, it was 8pm so we took some stuff over to my Mom and Dad’s and my mom fed us some Hamburger Stew.

Thank goodness because we packed up all our food. Ha!

Anyways, I just wanted to drop in and let you know that I probably won’t be posting any recipes until later next week. Since I am not going to be posting any recipes for a bit, I figured I would stop in and send you some things about Friday!

1. The reason I won’t be posting any recipes for a few days is because I don’t have any food in the house and I am NOT messing up the stove after I just spent hours (exaggeration) cleaning it. Anyone else think cleaning the stove is the worst POSSIBLE job in the house? I am fine with most housework, laundry I actually kind of like doing…I know I’m a freak. However, oven/stove cleaning HAS to be the worst, with washing the floor and throwing out moldy food being tied for a very close second.

2. I got a little obsessive over this Michael Kors iphone case/wristlet. So much so that I bought one on a total impulse. Seriously the best idea ever. This is perfect for going out somewhere when you don’t want to bring your whole huge purse. It carries all your necessities! I hope it gets here for next weekend when I go to Whistler for my girl, Lani’s big Birthday weekend!

3.  I also bought some Toms online today too. Woops, shopping binge. When people started wearing them, I was like WTF are those? They’re so weird looking. I didn’t think they were awesome at all and I was confused at why everyone was wearing them and paying like $60 for a pair. THEN I tried my Mom’s pair on and yeah I was sold. So comfy! Their one for one program is awesome too!

4. I got my first Christmas starbucks drink this morning! WEE. Peppermint mochas are the best ever. They also give me a sugar high alllll morning so I can write a post like this in 5 seconds. ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM.

The snowman cookie probably helped with that too. Yum.

5. This is Geoffrey literally EVERY morning.

He is obsessed with coming into the bathroom with us. If he sees you heading that way he will full on sprint to try to make it in there. We both let him in there when we are showering and getting ready in the morning and he will just sit outside the shower and wait for you to get out so he can lick the water out of the bottom of the shower, he has also now passed this onto the dog. So now we have both the animals in the shower fighting over the water left behind. Weirdos.

6. Unfortunately this is me:

Hey, at least I’m honest!

Miss Delish asks:

What is your least favorite chore?

Do you partake in Christmas Starbucks drinks? Which is your favorite?

Have a great weekend everyone!

    My least favorite chore has to be cleaning the kitty litter. Eww. I also got my Starbucks Christmas drank on this morning with an Egg Nog Latte!

    I live for the Eggnog latte at Starbucks…

    • missdelish November 2, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

      Eggnog latte is definitely a close second for me :)

    My least favorite chore is pairing up socks. I literally have a sock hamper, just for socks, you want socks, dig for your own matching pair, it drives me insane!!! I always have odd socks left over after laundry and it has brought me to this lol. I haven’t ever tried a Christmas starbucks drink, but I’m thinking I should just to say I have haha

    • missdelish November 2, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

      BAHAHA Holly, you are hilarious. I will take you to Starbucks and get you whatever drink you want, you cannot miss out on it. It’s like a Christmas tradition now!

    WORST chore for me has to be cleaning the shower…
    BEST Starbucks Christmas drink EVER (sorry Jill…) has to be Eggnog Latte!!! I can almost taste it now. Where are the car keys……

      Hi Nancy! Cleaning the shower is pretty annoying too, not my favorite either. I think I might be coming to the conclusion that I don’t like ANY chores…surprise surprise! Haha, don’t worry I’m not offended about the eggnog, that’s a good choice too!

    Worst chore ever: Cleaning the fridge and a very close second is cleaning the stove
    Starbucks Drink: I refuse to pay 5.00 for a drink!

    Hmmmm least favourite chore? Definitely cleaning the bathroom! Thankfully my wonderful husband seems to enjoy it. Gross eh? But I am very spoiled I think. Or a good division of labour…I cook, he cleans! Now as for Starbucks…I love the caramel apple cider! Or the eggnog latte! :)

    • missdelish November 4, 2012 at 3:59 pm #

      You are lucky to have a husband that will voluntarily clean! I pretty much have to force mine into it. Caramel apple cider?!? Why have I never heard of this! I’m going to get one next time.

      • Janet November 7, 2012 at 8:44 am #

        Yes the caramel apple cider is so yummy. After I posted my comment I thought oh crap is that even on the menu anymore? They steam apple cider then top it with whipped cream and drizzle it with caramel! So friggin good! Now I have to go to Starbucks and see if they have it still!

        • missdelish November 13, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

          Ooh! Well usually even if they don’t have a drink on the menu anymore, they will still make it for you if you ask. So good luck!

    I totally agree with you on the oven/stove being the worst chore. I have not been to Starbucks during the Christmas season… yet. I will definitely be trying a Peppermint mocha.

    • missdelish November 13, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

      YAY someone agrees with me!!

    My November Resolution – to try one of your recipes a week… already made the Oven Roasted Vegetables with Quinoa and Crunchy Chickpeas Recipe and loved it for a few days after cold in the fridge! On the shopping list for tomorrow, Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese and a modified green chile veggie burger (we’re vegetarians). Hoping I can modify your chicken recipes with my meatless chicken substitutes! Wish me luck! Thumbs up to Mr Delish going crazy for quinoa a few weeks back! Nice to spice up my regular quinoa side dish (pesto, corn, kale, onion, pumpkin seeds and fried tofu). YUM.
    Fave Christmas drink: Half sweet Peppermint Mocha :)

    • missdelish November 15, 2012 at 4:22 pm #

      Hey Trina! I am so glad you liked the Quinoa recipe! That is one of my favorites too. Please let me know how you like the other dishes!!
