I think I'm in love....

Sorry the picture's not that big, I found it on the internet. And it doesn't really do them justice. These are the cheese fries from Outback. I had them for dinner tonight. I think they'll be the new thing I crave. And in case you were wondering, here is their nutritional information:

Outback Steakhouse©
Aussie-Tizers - Aussie Cheese Fries©
Serving Size: 28 oz
Calories: 2900
Total Fat: 182 grams
Carbohydrates: 240 grams
Protein: 75 grams

Totally worth it though. I think.

How could I forget about Amy? What was I thinking? Amy, you're tagged too! haha

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Okay, so I was tagged by Lyn. I've never been tagged before and this one has really hard questions, so I'm not going to be very good. But I'll try.

1. if you owned a bookstore what would you name it: The Shop Around The Corner (because I love You've Got Mail and her name is Kathleen so it works....)
2. which literary hero [male or female] would you like to be: Bella (Twilight fans, you know why)
3. if you were given the chance to be born in a different decade which one would you choose: I don't know....I've always thought it'd be cool to be at a bar-b-que like the one in Gone With the Wind. I like the dresses.
4. who would play you in a movie: I have no idea - Keith says mix Sandra Bullock and Meg Ryan together and that would be me. Whatever.
5. what was your favorite toy of all of time: I think the thing I remember having the most fun playing with is the dress-up box my mom gave me and my sisters one year. She had gone to a whole bunch of thrift stores and bought old prom dresses/bridesmaid dresses/whatever and gave them to us for dress-up clothes. We LOVED them.
6. what do you like to collect: Cookbooks and scrapbook supplies. Oh, and Nativity sets.
7. what is your guilty pleasure: buying clothes and scrapbooking stuff.
8. if you had the power to change one thing in this world what would that be: too hard. i pass.
9. what is your most embarrasing moment: If I could choose one out of the many I've had, I'd keep it to myself. There's a reason those things are embarassing. :)
10. what is your favorite christmas movie: Elf
11. what is your favorite vegetable: Corn and Broccoli
12. tell 3 things about yourself (2 true, and 1 untrue ) and see if we can figure out which is fantasy: If Keith would let me, I would stay in my pajamas and read all day long. I enjoy cleaning my house. Football is my favorite sport to watch.

And now I tag Elaine, just cause she's the only person I know who has a blog. :)

keith's take on the video

so, I made the mistake of showing Keith the video. He thinks this is proof that it's okay to act the way he does when he gets sick. This is what he said...

"Honey, it's true. It's a mancold. You wouldn't know because you're not a man. On a scale of 1 to 10, if you have a 2 (referring to how bad the cold is), we have a ten. You could never have a ten. Cause if you had a ten, that means we're dead."

He may be crazy, but I still love him...

did they film this in my house?

Literally, this could have been filmed in my very own house. This is what happens every single time Keith gets sick. Men.....

keith doing his "karate"

Keith has this pretend karate stuff he likes to do with the girls and they just eat it up. I don't know how much more of an explanation I can give without just showing you. So without further ado........

Happy Birthday Téa!!!!!!!

I can't believe my little Téa is three years old! She had so much fun with her birthday this year. She loved us asking her "who's having a birthday?" and "who's going to be 3?"
Here are some pictures of her......
blowing out the candles on her cake (can you tell she'd already gotten into the icing?)

Eating her cake - which is a yellow cake made from scratch, thank you very much. (that's only cause I was out of boxes - I don't know how that happened! :)

opening her birthday box from Gamma and Papa

holding her money from Memmie (which she was VERY excited about)

opening a card from Sally and Ben (she loved the glitter)

And here's a little video of her coloring with the art stuff Gamma sent her. What's that lovely noise in the background you ask? Oh, that's just the other girls fighting over the sweet noise-making piano Gamma sent her. Thanks, Gamma. We love it! (Or should I say, the girls love it, and I am not loving it at all.)

Can you believe this is the best family picture from Thanksgiving? We could not get the girls to cooperate. This is the best one because no one's crying or making mean faces. Oh well.

we have video!

I dragged my lazy bum upstairs to work on my Senior Project (it's due in less than two weeks and yes, I'm just barely starting to work on it). Anyway, that got boring real fast, so I thought I'd mess around with the video camera and get that one of Mari holding the puppy posted. Enjoy!
