Anyone who has ever been with me while I have eaten french fries knows of my intense love for ketchup. I love it. Best condiment, by far. But in the back of my mind I think about how much high fructose corn syrup is in it, along with many other delights, and it makes me want to cut back. Well, thanks to Skinny Taste, I will not have to worry about that any more. I am dying to try this newly posted recipe for homemade ketchup. It looks easy [definite plus] and I will be making this before we have our first cookout in our new home!
Pinterest takes on a whole new meaning when you have your own home to think about!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has been fully consuming my computer time. I have decided to take things one step at a time. First step is the back yard (obviously the most important. we are so practical), perhaps because it needs minimal TLC. I am so excited to have a little garden (thank you, previous owners!) so I can step right in and pretend I grew those tomatoes that are about to bloom. Ha.
Next step is the sun room, the upstairs bedroom and the upstairs bath. If you see me on pinterest, I am slowly trying to decide what my life is going to look like over the next few months...
On a side note, we are SO excited to be right down the street from our favorite newlyweds, Mary and Blair!!(shameless promo for RJ Rockers there)
First of all, I had to look up how to spell "reminiscing"
Second of all, I saw this today and just had to share. I think number 38 is my favorite. I was, as I'm sure many others were, thoroughly in love with *NSYNC. Even then, Justin was the main man, but in that picture in #38, they are all looking quite dapper in their overalls (were those really that cool back then??? yikes.)
I know being 26 is not that old, but it is funny to think about the fact that 1995 was 17 years ago. In my mind, the 90's are still just a few years ago....
They were the epitome of American.
Duh, *NSYNC totally ruled over BSB.
I have no words. The hair, the jackets, the turtlenecks.
Less than 50 days until we get married! And in the last 50 days, I got a job!!!! What a relief to have that set in stone and not have to worry about finances as soon as we are married. Next step: find a place to live, or it's hello to the soon to be in-law's basement! (Just kidding, we would really go live with Mary and Blair. That okay with you guys?)
In other news, I have successfully grown a basil plant!!! Some of my basil leaves were used for the first time over the weekend in some homemade bruschetta. (Notice I didn't say that I made it. But someone else did and I ate it, so that counts right?) It was delicious and I am so proud of my green thumb!! I think it had a lot to do with the soil my mom recommended and some diligent watering, but hey, I did it! Next up is growing rosemary!
