Pinterest and a round-up

Happy Saturday everyone! This week flew by. I hope you all have fun St. Patrick’s Day plans. We have a long list of things to do today. We’re supposed to go to the parade, and then we’re going to go to some bars most likely, then eventually eat and have a St. Paddy’s dinner at the bf’s family’s house. However, I kind of would rather just stay home instead of going to bars at 9am, UGH! I’m just so tired. Hopefully I’ll get over that feeling. I do love St. Patrick’s day!

Posts I’m lovin':

  1. Erika made a post on volunteering. I wish I had time to volunteer, it will have to wait until the summer time after I graduate though. Between having a full-time career, full-time MBA classes, dogs and a house, I literally feel like I have no time for anything
  2. Check out Serendipity’s Guide to Saving’s Side Income Update.  I know all of you always love reading those!
  3. Bridget thinks just like me, and her goal is to now make more money. Yes there are more things out there that I an cut from our budget, but I like everything that I spend my money on. I’d rather make more money.
  4. Daisy has a long list of things she wants to do when she graduates, it looks like a lot of the same things I want to do!

Interesting search keywords:

  1. Disgusting hair
  2. I like expensive dates
  3. Shopping for cheese

That’s all the interesting search keywords I had. I’m confused…

Hope you all have a great day!

My Bucketlist, and a little depressing tidbit about my Dad…

I’ve seen some other bloggers do this, and I thought this was a great idea! There are a lot of things I want to do in life. My dad is my inspiration for most of my goals in life, I wish he was here still. I still vividly remember the day that we watched The Bucket List at the movie theater together, just me and him. It was probably the most depressing day of my life, because the movie is about two older men who are dieing and they set out to do a list together.

When we watched this movie, it was just about a month before my dad passed from cancer. He couldn’t even sit in the theater chair or his wheelchair because he was always so sick and uncomfortable and he eventually had to lay of the movie theater ground. I still remember people watching and staring and calling us crazy, and I just wanted to hit all of them. Anyways, he loved the movie, and he accomplished so many things on his bucket list. He traveled pretty much EVERYWHERE and did everything. I have so many photo albums as proof of his adventures. I probably have hundreds on completely packed and huge albums. Anyways, here I go:

What’s on your list? Are yours similar to mine?

I need to make a dessert plate for Thanksgiving

For one of the BF’s and I’s Thanksgiving dinners, we need to only bring one plate, and that is dessert. The BF’s family is probably around 100 people altogether (immediate family, cousins, uncles, aunts, second cousins and etc) and everyone meets on Thanksgiving and it is wonderful.

I come from a very small family (where we have NEVER had a Thanksgiving dinner, except for the immediate family), so I love going to his Thanksgiving dinners.

Anyways, there’s tons of food at this Thanksgiving.  There’s around 15 different kinds of dessert and around 30 HUGE plates/trays of food on the serving table. It’s wonderful!

So on to the question, what should I make for our “dessert”? It can be anything really, as there are so many different desserts to choose from.  Here are my choices:

What do you think? Do you have any other ideas?
