I was super lazy on Saturday morning. Joe suggested we get up and go for a run but I just wanted to stay snuggled up in bed, so I did, and Joe went to the gym. I really should have gone but I've just been really lazy lately. I swear this week is going to be different!
Anyway, back to Saturday. After Joe got home from the gym we went across the street for breakfast. I ordered an egg white, ham and tomato sandwich on rye toast. I skipped the cheese hoping to save some calories; I really think if I cut out cheese I'd drop like 20 pounds but I refuse to live that way and I will never order a sandwich this way again. It was definitely not as good without the cheese!Joe headed off to work and I walked across the street to get my nails done. I went with a deep red in hopes of being festive. Then I spent the majority of the afternoon watching tv and being lazy. I finally pried my butt up off the couch in the late afternoon because I had to get ready for my girls night. I started by putting new nail covers on the cats because it was shower day! A few of my friends are allergic to cats so I always try to bathe them when I know certain people are coming over. After we were all clean it was time to attack the downstairs. I spent an hour or two cleaning and vacuuming the kitchen, living room and dining room not only to make it look more presentable but also to remove as much cat hair as I could. And wouldn't you know, my most allergic friend didn't show up!
This month was a pajama party theme; everyone was coming over in their favorite sweats or pajamas and I had a 31 rep coming over to show her bags & organizational items. My main purpose in inviting her was to check out all the items because everyone has been telling me I should sell their stuff. My biggest concern was that the company name "thirty-one" is a reference to proverb 31 and I am not a religious person. I really didn't want to sign on to a company that was going to preach to me. But after talking to the girl about her experiences she assured me nothing religious ever comes up at meetings or anything so I think I'm going to go for it! I haven't signed my life away quite yet but when I close the show this coming Friday I think I'm going to do it, wish me luck!
Nicole provided pizza, a slumber party staple.
Angela brought gorilla bread (monkey bread on steriods).
I made a rice cooker cake, my friend Anne taught me about it. All it takes is 10 minutes. I use my Pampered Chef rice cooker; I just added a boxed cake mix, oil, eggs and water (per box instructions) and mixed it up. Then I took an entire container of store bought frosting and dumped it in, put the lid on and microwaved for 10 minutes. I was nervous since this was my first time making it but when I dumped it on the plate it was an almost perfect lava cake!
We had a great night drinking wine and catching up on each other's lives. I know a lot of people think I'm crazy or maybe get annoyed that they're always getting invitations from me for one thing or another but it's so nice to see whichever of my friends can make each month.
