Give me a Break

You're singing the commercial now....
Aren't ya....
Give me a break Give me a break....
Break me off a piece of that
 You can thank me later.

 Things have gone from bad to worse...
on the
 side of things.

We had our range microwave go out.
Finally found one that we agree upon.
And we the hubs put it in.

We had winter formal.
The formal was a last minute thing, so my niece, the hairdresser, was already booked solid that day.
 So Momma took over.
However, the end result was worth it.

 So who found the most incredible dress ever?
This girl, Me, that's right....
On the sale rack.
Thank goodness for a cheap dress...
Cause the shoes.
 over 3 times as much.
 damn skinny feet
 can NOT find cheap shoes
 yup, she got that from me.
 poor kid

 I made my own version of a cake I had found on the internet....
It was gone by the end of the day.
 Our office will eat anything.

 Speaking of office....
 I have worked my ASS off in the company I am at.
 To make a special spot
 One nobody else does
 Make myself indispensable.
 I did it.
 NOW I am leaving.
 Trying to train 4 people to do my job
who knew quiting was such work.

But that what that leads me to....
 a bloggy vacation.
 You would have gotten one for tax season anyhow....
But this new place.
Well, it's a small energy company.
So no tax season
Bigger pay check.
Near my favorite sushi place
YEAH just a few blocks from the mall
You get the point?

I will still be over dealing out recipes...
You can find me on instagram and twitter under Nicely Composed :)
I do facebook and may let you add me there...
So it's not farewell....
 but a see ya soon!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

All the Christmas celebrations are finally over....
The decorations are down...

The New Year's Eve party is behind us.

It may or may not have gotten raunchy with some booby flashing and rubbing of nipples....

I feel as though I have been cooking and cleaning nonstop for the past 2 weeks.
Today has been declared "stay home in PJs all day" Day.
I need it.
I can't sit still for long though....
I want to make some sugar cookies and clean a little more on the house....

I have moving ya know...
It's almost tax season.
All hell breaks loose then....
Life as we know it ends.
For at least a few months anyway.

Can't think of a creative title

My brain is gone. 
this post is just a bunch of random crap.
Just sayin'

If you are here.... PLEASE click on the awesome bloggers tab above and add yourself :)

You should also go follow my other blog...
It's got some pretty YUMMO recipes on it!
Plus, I get help from Nicole and Andrea.
There are currently 4 days a week, that there are not recipes being posted.
Would you be willing to post a recipe each week over there?
Leave me a message if you would like to :)

Why does life go so freakin' fast that you don't have time to really stop and enjoy things. 
The older I get, the faster it goes.
I would LOVE to have ONE day.
To sit and do nothing. Stay in my PJs all day.
today would be a good day.... as it is snowing like crazy.
We were not supposed to have snow today.
But then again we were supposed to have a blizzard on Christmas Day.
Didn't happen.
I think the weathermen are on crack.

We have been going non stop this holiday season.
One more Christmas Celebration to go and we are done!
Well, actually not, because you see....
We have a huge arse New Years Eve Party
every. stinkin'.year.

Kobi is getting better and better every day and most of her stomach/throat probs have gone.
YEAH!  However, she still has a knot on the back of her neck.
We finally got her in for a CT scan.
It's nothing.
Well, it's something, but not a solid mass, even though it feels and looks like one.
So probably just an infected lymph node.
We will go to an ENT if it doesn't stop bothering her soon.

As I am rejoicing that Kobi's scan comes back with good news....
My friend and her 11 year old daughter were not so fortunate.
Please say some special prayers for them as the 11 year old undergoes surgery today to remove a tumor in her brain.

I hosted a wine and painting party a couple weeks ago.
We all painted Santa pictures.

If anyone has a chance to do a wine and palette party....
They are SO SO much fun!
Most things with wine are fun....

OK so now that I have totally spun you in circles with all my random crazy talk....
I best say toodles and get movin' onto my next project for the day....
Hope everyone had a great Christmas
Hope you have a Happy New Year!

Pure sadness...
That is what my blogging has become.
It seems I get around once a week. 
If that....

I totally made anew Christmas/Winter wreath this past weekend.

 I just wish I could find more  mesh....
I want to make more....
I think I have all the Christmas decorations up at the house

This weekend I will be painting a Santa to put out...
like one of these.

I am having something like a "wine and palette" party at my home on Saturday.
You eat snacks, drink wine and paint a picture.
Want to come?

This weekend we also spent time celebrating the 50th birthday of our friend Mark.
And yes, for his birthday, his wife got him an old restored classic truck....
the one in 50 signs plastered in his

And of course the weekend is not a weekend unless you go out for drinks....

The cold finally hit us here in Oklahoma...
So Sunday was perfect soup weather.

I altered Nicole's Yummy Soup Recipe just a bit...
I used 1 cup of salsa and used a can of drained corn....
I also left out the flour tortillas and crunched in some corn chips.

My leftovers were a huge hit at the office on Monday!

Speaking of Monday....
Best Monday ever!
I actually WON something!
I know right?

a limited edition lip balm collection inspired by the whimsy and wonder of Disney’s timeless tale, Alice in Wonderland.

My brain and body are on overload.
I would like to just curl up in a ball and sleep for a year...
Maybe just a day or two?

Life as I know it has been such an emotional roller coaster the last 2 weeks. 
Some awesome highs
some horrible lows.

A few of the HIGHS:

-The photographer that I originally wanted to do my daughter's Sr. Pics was in retirement.  then came out of retirement.... After I had already hired and paid another photographer... one that was just bleh- ok.  I could afford another shoot. Anywho... the photographer I originally wanted called because she needed someone to model for her within the next couple of days on a photo assignment.... she thought of Kobi.       YEAH!   She was kind enough to take a few extra pictures.  Just looking at the 2 previews....I am totally excited to see the rest!

- I received a thank you card for referring our neighbors to a certain Realtor I know.... It had a referral "bonus" in there.... totally made my day.

-my niece got to come down to stay the night before Thanksgiving. She is truly like a 2nd daughter to me... Obviously Kobi thinks of her more like a sister than a cousin...

Now for some of the lows.....
-Did you really should go to the website of the maker of your vehicle and put in your VIN # to see if there are any recalls on your vehicle?  Especially if you bought it used. If you don't... your ford could end up looking like this....

smokin' hot.
this is was my niece's car.  She knew there was a recall, but the dealer didn't have the parts to fix it.  When ford says they can randomly catch on fire.... in the middle of parking lot or driveway.... with nobody around.... they speak the truth.

-the very next day she was in a car accident....and is now sportin' a cast ... complete with leopard print duck tape?  Thankfully, that is all that is wrong... well that and a swollen/bruised boob.
 The kicker for me is... my Tara is a beautician.... It was time for her to do my hair again. BOOOO  I had to suck it up and beg my old person to cut my hair.  I felt so ashamed.  But it had to be done.  Not gonna lie though... I used a cheaparse box of color to take care of my roots until she is back and working again.

And now... since I have bored you lovies for so long.... I think I will save my other thoughts....
They really deserve a post of their own.

Weekend Recap

This is Jasper....
Lucky arse dog.....
He spent the weekend...
The way I wanted to.

The weekend in sports for us generally stunk.
This is what it was like at our house....
In front of all the tv's.
Nobody could set down.
Nobody could eat.
They just all seperated up and stood in front of the 3 larger tv's in our home...
screaming and yelling...
The sooners didn't have it in them though....
And during the game....
talk about rubbing salt in an open sore....
To hear "the beard" got traded?'.bout.
I am over it .
It's done.

I think Justin n Kobi had the right idea....
ignore the game...
carve pumpkins
Actually the game was on in the kitchen....
so they got to watch the misery.
Mickey n Minnie pumpkins.

I have been doing some serious blog stalking reading lately....
I hate when I go to post a comment and I get this.....

Serious question, why do bloggers change their comment section?

I tried to get out and around and explore a bit instead of keeping in my same circle of blogs.
I bet I left a couple dozen comments yesterday.
I got 2 replies.
I guess that's why I stick with my same "circle of blogs"
ain't nobody stuck up and they always reply back or comment back.
Today, like every Tuesday,  I am linking up with
Shawn and IA
