Taco Night

Maddie is wiped.

We dropped her off at doggie camp yesterday morning and she could barely keep her eyes open when we picked her up earlier this evening. The good news is she came home with top marks on her report. Apparently she’s a good eater, plays well with others, and easily bonds with every counselor. I’m so proud. :)

Tacos were on the menu for dinner tonight.

Part 4: Cheese :)

Only I added chocolate chips to mine. It needed a little somethin’-somethin’.

I was impatient and didn’t let it refrigerate first, so my piece wasn’t the prettiest coming out, but that didn’t stop it from being tasty.

The texture and flavor reminded me more of a pumpkin pudding pie than anything else. It was good, but still missing something. Maybe more chocolate drizzled on top?! ;)

Derek and I just started Captain America. I’m crossing my fingers Chris Evans keeps his shirt off the entire movie. A girl can dream, right? ;)

Good Night!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… I know it’s only November, but I can’t help but dive head first into the holiday spirit. I already have Christmas music uploaded to my ipod, several Christmas movies saved to the DVR/ Netflix instant queue, and have purchased a gift or two for friends and family. more »
