Project 365... 2011: Week 12

Sunday - March 13 - BEASTLY!!!! ... we met up with Lindsay & went out to eat, went shopping for awhile & then headed to go see the movie that I've waited for almost a YEAR to see - Beastly!!!! I loved it... but how could I not when its based on "Beauty & the Beast".  I almost had a heart attack though because the movie froze in the first few minutes of the beginning.  Then after no one got up in the theater, Ricky went & told the manager.  They restarted it, but the color was all messed up.. UGH!!!  Then, the big moment at the end... THE FILM SKIPS TO THE END... credit's.... it skipped over the whole ENDING!!! I literally screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!" .... People were getting frustrated.  Ricky came to my rescue again & didnt waste time - he ran out to tell the manager.  They back tracked the movie about 10 minutes & this time, the end was played... whew!  They did end up giving up tickets to come back for another movie.  (ya think?) ... but here's Lindsay in the lobby with a cut out.  Ricky was too busy hiding from us.  I got giggling so loud about this because it really looked like it could be her!

Monday - March 14 - My first homemade soup!!!! ... & it was INCREDIBLE!  It was a chicken & rice soup I got from E-Mealz (LOVE them)... It was a-maz-ing.  Probably one of the best things I've ever made in my life.  Ricky told me to add potatoes to it. I did & it was such a good add-in.  He told me, "I want credit for that on your blog" - so there you go Ricky - your credit :)

Tuesday - March 15 - Siesta Verse .... I always love writing my new verse on my board at work... This one is a long one.  I've had to learn it in phrases... but I've already got it down (GO ME)

Wednesday - GOD Gonna Knock you OUT (devil)!!!! .... I saw a ring like this on Amy's blog (check her out - she's pretty fab) & asked her where she got it.  She sent me a link on Etsy & I immediately bought it.  Its a ring that goes over 2 fingers.  I put it on & Ricky was like, "That's like a gangsta ring... brass knuckles" ... so I told him its what I'm gonna knock the devil out with!  Appropriate because I was leaving to go to the Youth Group for the night :) 

Thursday - March 17 - Spice World ... Since I'm getting "into" cooking lately, I needed to see what spices I have bought lately.  I'm going to keep a list of what I have on the inside of my cabinet so I know what's in there & I dont end up buying 2 of the same spice... Score one for me on being organized.

Friday - March 18 - Night with the Twins ... I got to hang out with my nices.  Goodness gracious - its just fun to hang out with 6 yr old girls.  I think I'm even going to do a post all in itself of some of the things they said.  I remember them being so small... & now, they are all about choosing where they want to eat, what they want to do... minds of their own.  How does that happen?

Saturday - March 19 - its what holds me together... I got 8 miles in today... MUCH better then the previous run.  And this is what my knee looks like now when I run with the KT Tape.  Doesnt look like much, does it?  But it makes ALL the difference in the world... I honestly feel like it holds my kneecap together... how weird is that?

Cant wait to see what your week look liked...

  1. That soup does look delish.

    Yay! for being organized.

    Glad Saturday was a better run day for you.

  2. I need to write down all of my spices...I hate going to the store and having to think if I have it or not...good for you for being so organized! Your soup looks very yummy! And I have to tell you that as soon as I read your verse I had to run and get my bible to mark that verse...LOVED IT!

  3. I always have 3 jars of one spice and none of another. I should copy your idea!

    Hugs & love,

  4. Wow, I had to do a triple-take (yep, 3 looks) to see that it was a cut-out prop & not her actual picture! That is incredible!!

    Your SSMT reminds me I don't think I posted mine on my blog yet...Ahhh! I need to do that because I've been working on it for a week now.

    What a great idea to keep a spice list. Maybe we could write it and tape it to the inside of the cabinet so all we have to do is open it & see what we have. I can't tell you how many double spices I have & what a waste of money!!

    Aren't the things kids say the best?! And I'm glad your knee tape is working so you can still enjoy your runs, too!

  5. my daughter wants to see that movie...was it up to your expectations?

    that soup looks amazing and is going on my list to make!!!

    you want to organize MY spices?!!!!

  6. That soup does look yummy - and I like the idea of adding potatoes to bulk it up - thank Ricky for me :)

    I should do the spice thing - & while I'm at it put down the date that I got the spice since apparently they lose potency after a while (who knew?). I think I might have spices in my spice box that we received as wedding gifts. Yep - 20 year old cardamom. Heh.

  7. Love the spice idea! I am always buying duplicates. Need to get a list going....And those nieces! SO cute. Mine are now 16 & 18!! I have NO CLUE where the time went.

  8. I love your ring Rebecca! :D

    And that soup? Yummy!

    Thanks for sharing your week with us!

  9. Wonderful soup! It is so satisfying to have something you make turn out the way you want it to!

    I do the same thing every time I head to the store, I give the pantry and freezer a quick once over to make sure I don't over by something that I already have. Way to go!


  10. You had a great week. I want to see that movie also. Have a great day!

  11. I really thought that cut out was totally fake at first, then realized your friend's face was in it! LOL

    Ok you have to share where you got that ring...Etsy link please! :D I love it!

  12. Do you know that we talked about that verse in church yesterday? Pretty powerful, isn't it? I've never heard of that kind of tape for your knee, but so glad it's bringing you some relief. 8 miles??? Wow...YOU GO, GIRL! :) Hey, stop by if you can...I'm having a Shabby Apple Giveaway...WOOT, WOOT!

  13. Impressed with the soup and spices display. Tell me more about KT tape. I have a bum knee. Running has not been possible for a long time. Walking up stairs is killer.

  14. Ok so I totally want something to hold my kneecaps together, but that is another comment for another day =)

    I would LOVE that soup recipe, as I am NOT a soup eater. I keep thinking there will be that one soup that will make me a lover, so has not happened.

    I am not much of a movie goer, but I've never had an experience like that. I'd be freaking out if the end jumped to the credits right at the punch line, if you will. WOW not good!!!! Kudos to Ricky for hooking you up!!!!!

    Love your nieces. They are so stinkin' sweet. The littles keep us on our toes don't they?!!

    So totally unrelated to your post, but just wondering how your sweet daddy and mama are doing?....

    Love you girl ~~ have a Blessed evening,

  15. Just in case you didn't get my comment - LOL
    Potaotes and Rice? Together? I never thought of that - but it looks totally yum!

    Love the scripture - but could we translate "complaining" to whining? Then we'd have whining and arguing, which are like response meat and potatoes to 10-14 year old boys - except meat and potatoes gone bad!

    Your nieces are adorable! Lucky (blessed you)
    And love the ring - and what it means to you:)

    Totally impressed with all the miles you have logged in. Keep it up!

    Looks like your week was awesome; hope this one is just as!

  16. Oh! I know a song to the first part of that verse!! My kids and I learn Scriptures best that way.

    Love the ring. It DOES look gangsta!

    I'm glad you were able to run. But dog. Just looking at your knee... Actually, just SAYING the word "knee" makes me hurt a little, especially when I think of YOURS running around with that thing on it. Sheesh! (I had a knee injury once, and I've never been the same since. Ha!)
