as long as he's happy,
i don't care if he's dirty.

my 2011.

this new years has been a little
different for me and i am actually
being thoughtful about the goals
i'm setting for myself...which
hasn't been the case in the past
(apparently that approach
didn't really work for me...whoops.)

i'm going to be posting about
the things i'll be working
on this year, one at a time.

i got the idea when i looked at my
unrealistically lengthy list from last new years
and one of my resolutions was to
read through my resolutions throughout the year.

my first improvement is cooking.

now, i'm going for healthy here,
but my point is that i'm fully capable
of making all meals and treats...
even if they call for two sticks of butter.
at home. as in...not purchased at a store
or at a drive thru window.

a homemade cookie is definitely
better than some packaged thing
with freaky unknown ingredients.

i give you:
the peanut butter rolo cookie
(or as some have called it: the best thing
you'll ever put in your mouth)

make them.
eat one.
then give the rest to
the lovelies in your life
and get your cookie eating
butt to the gym, because
you know i have a post
coming about that.

oh and:
looky look what i took.

boys night.

secure enough
in there manhood
to let me give them
manis and pedis...
minus the manis.

(i could almost hear the faint
sound of george michael
singing "you jitterbugged in to my heart...)

just in case you don't know what i'm talking about:

it's so eighties, you just might die.

ps how in the world this didn't make the cut for the kinect dance central game,
i'll never know.

no blogging and no consistent internet makes catie something something...

(you'll only understand the title if you're down with the simpsons)

hello 2011;
it's wonderful to meet you.
i have a feeling we'll be
getting along splendidly.

i have a lot that i have
wanted to blog about
for the new year, however,
since it's 11:30 i'll just leave
you with this little update:

this kid:

has been giving me a run for my money. oh my.
i keep telling myself it'll get better once we're not
cooped up all. the. time. for the's hoping.

have you been to gourmandise?
you haven't? (do i sound appalled? i am.)
my aunt debbie took me here
when i was a little girl and i
experienced marzipan for the
first time.......mmmmmmmm.

you won't be disappointed.

everything is
(in the words of mr. b)
aaaand the people that work
there are almost as sweet
as some of the desserts they sell...
but it's not just a french bakery,
there are soups and
sandwiches (aren't there, noey?:) too.

4th east and between 3rd and 4th south
in good ol' salt lake city.

and a french pistachio macron, for this gal.

If you're wondering what Bennett keeps saying

and over again,

it's "Buzz Lightyear Shoes".
