This 'n That

I have a bunch of things to cover so prepare for a This ‘n That moment 🙂

{One} Because of Christmas, I got to write off quite a few of my 101 in 1001 list items :).  The first we’ll address is number 66, print a photo on Canvas.  My dad saw a photo that I took and liked it, a lot.  He made the comment it would be very cool on Canvas so PC and I went to work and ordered it for him on Canvas.

I cropped it some but this was the photo that I started with.

Then as an added bonus, PC had this one made for me on Canvas.  I was shocked!

It’s going in our bedroom 🙂

{Two}  One of the only things we had to do in our house to have everything put away was to clean the office.  All through the small remodel projects and small parties prior to Christmas, etc, if we didn’t know where to put something, it ended up in the office.  Let me tell our our office was a mess.  But after the “Great Flood” as we so affectionately refer to it, the office is cleaned, so that means that I get to cross off number

  47. Get everything put away in our house.

Here is a shot of the floor, you can actually see it now… LOL  I don’t have a finished product because if you remember this happened the weekend before Christmas and that weekend/week/weekend was hectic!

{Three}  Number 99 is about making all recipes in the PW Cookbook.  Well I have a few new recipes that I’ve made to add to the 64 recipes.  Boy I wasn’t thinking so smart when I did that one, but it’s all good 🙂  Just look at it this way, by the time I’m done with my list, I’ll have done more than 101 things in 1001 days 🙂
First I made her Homemade Ranch with Iceburg Wedge on 11/4/10.  Yeah I wasn’t so crazy about it.  I’m a Ranch fan and that didn’t taste like good Ole Ranch to me.  But hey I made it 🙂

Second I made her Hot Artichoke Dip.  Husband doesn’t like artichokes but he tried it, On the other hand I loved it!  My aunt made it for Thanksgiving but I didn’t cheat, I made my own for a goody day at work.  I thought it was excellent!

{Four} Speaking of Goody Day, they teased PC that if he wanted to eat, he had to participate.  He couldn’t slide in under my radar… LOL.  So we made a super easy dip that is fantastic!

{ingredients}
1 block of cream cheese, softened
1 small pkg of ham
1 bunch of green onions
Accent seasoning

Mix the first 3 together.  Add the accent seasoning to taste.  Eat with crackers and enjoy!  (yes ours is in plastic wrap.  I always put it in a small bowl like that with plastic wrap to get the curved shape and stick it in the fridge overnight.)
(And yes there is actually a seasoning called accent seasoning and us being the seasoning people we are didn’t have any so I just threw some seasonings in.)

{Five} I also feel like sharing a couple photos that I just like.  Hey it’s my blog :), I’m entitled 🙂

{Six} Even being Twenty… what seven??? years old (I can tell you my birthday, you do the math :)) I still get in trouble with my mom.  What did I do this time?  I set her up for pictures on Christmas Day (remember my mom hates having her photo taken).

{Seven} Back up to the night before (Christmas Eve)… I get to cross number 27 off my list as well.

27. Host a Holiday party at my house
We hosted Christmas with my mom’s side of the family.  I know we took before photos of the kitchen but I can’t seem to find them.  Oddly enough, the chaos didn’t start in there until about 4pm and I cooked all day long :).  It was the green beans that the husband made that caused a mess, but it’s all good.  They were fantastic!  But being the host, not many photos got taken.  We however had a sad tragedy occur :(… My stone bar pan got broken 🙁

This is what happens when you own a boxer who is tall and you are exhausted.  To tell you how exhausted I was, our floors are concrete and then we have wood on top of the concrete.  I fell asleep on our hardwood floors.

{Eight} So I had the chance to get my boots shined.  Here’s the before:

And here’s the After:
And they weren’t even shiney when I bought them.  I’m super happy!!!

Peace, Love & 1 more day to New Year’s Eve 🙂
Happy Thursday!

  1. Your boots are so cute!

    I could never do the PW's cookbook! I'm a Southern girl and love myself some Paula Deen & PW but I'm pretty sure I'd be double my weight if I did her cookbook 🙂

  2. That's some good boot shinin'! You've crossed off a lot of stuff. I've been wanting to do a canvas but haven't brought myself to purchase one yet. Maybe one day I'll do it.

    Happy 2011~!

  3. Sounds like you got a lot accomplished! 😀

    Sorry to hear about your bar pan. Those are expensive. 🙁

    Your boots look AMAZING!

    You're ahead of me on the “cleaning office”. Hey, wait! I didn't have an office until the remodel and well, it's not done so … nope not going to work, eh? Yeah, the “new office” still needs to be finished and the “old” space needs done… UGH! I'm proud of ya! Wanna come help me?

    What was it about PW's ranch dip did you not like? I don't think hers has MSG (aka Accent Seasoning), but not sure since her cookbook is packed away. Hidden Valley Ranch does (at least in here it does). Maybe that's the difference.

    I've had one of my photos done on canvas. It is one that I turned from a photo to a digital painting using Photoshop brushes not filters. It turned out cool.

    Congrats on all you've done!
