Why hellooo people!
Woo hooooo it’s Friday! This week has been a pretty basic one, besides the fact that I got to spend some q.t with my friend Sally who came down from Oregon with her ADORABLE six month old, she is too cute! We grabbed some lunch yesterday, and she is the smiliest most calm baby I have ever been around! I hope I’m that lucky some day.
Here’s a pic of mama and baby I hijinked from her FB profile. Aren’t they the cutest?
Now I have to say that I am beyond excited for this weekend. A little more than usual, actually. Why? Because So You Wanna Fight is happening at Cher-ae Heights Casino this Saturday [you can get more info at www.cheraeheightscasino.com]! What is so you wanna fight, you ask? Well for those of you who are a little squeamish, you might want to pass over this paragraph, but for everyone else who likes a little MMA action, this event is for you. Over the years, it has gotten better and better; and it’s also nice to have a little bit of a reason to get glammed up in good ol Humboldt county. My friend Jordee is going to be my ‘date’ and also may be going to go to the Sunset restaraunt (which is also located at the casino) for a little dinner before hand, they have such good calamari there…mmmm…now I’m even more excited!
I also have to say, another reason I am excited for the weekend is that it’s the last of hunting season for the year! Woo hoo! Rocky’s going back up to the lake on Saturday, and he has yet to tag out, so wish him luck everyone! Our freezer needs it… haha 😉
Something to think about: this is technically the last weekend before halloween! Do you guys have any plans? I’ll take any ideas from my fellow Humboldtians if anyone has any ideas,because at this point I’m pretty stumped. I know that there is this going on:
…so maybe that will be interesting…but I’m going to try and get my costume shopping done this weekend, I’m super bummed that our mall here isn’t doing the halloween store this year, last year it was my savior when my costume decided to not want to be delivered until November 1st,but enough about that, I’ll be talking more about halloween in a later post.
One last weekend plan: I’m going to plant some bearded irises! My boss gave me some plants and I have the perfect spot already all picked out in my backyard…now I just have to get rid of those darn blackberry bushes and put them in the ground! My dang picture wouldn’t go on my post for what they look like, so I recommend googling (or just trust me that they’re pretty).
So some thoughts/ideas for anyone who has a little spare time this weekend:
I was parousing on the internets earlier in the day and found a REALLY yummy recipe for an alcoholic beverage by the name of the cranberry cobbler.
everyone say it with me: YUM. Right?! Here’s a link:
Also, if you guys get really bored, and it’s not quite sunny enough for some outings to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard, I highly recommend checking out a show I am LOVING right now called Revenge. It’s featured on ABC but I like watching it on hulu.com, they’re featuring all of the past episodes right now on that site.
