#70 [101 Things]

# 70 –Try the strawberry,yogurt,sour cream thing-on my 101 List – done!

((To clarify, -> you dip your strawberry in sour cream, then in brown sugar.))

When I worked in Napa at B.Restaurant, a coworker of mine had been raving about how she dipped her strawberries in sour cream, and then in brown sugar. She said it was delicious – as weird as it sounds.

I was skeptical, but have been wanting to try it for years now.

And I did.

And it was good.









Perfect ending to my Tuesday!


#3 [101 Things]

Movie Marathon!!!

#3 done off of my 101 list!

So, I have never done a movie marathon. And not knowing the correct “rules” to having one, I googled it.

And thanks to Justin’s guide, I found out that:

1) Must be at least 3 movies

2) Must not be random movies that I like, needs to have a theme

3) No pauses or breaks

One thing that I was still not sure about, was if I could do it by myself, and if the movies had to be ones I have already seen…

Well, finding 4 movies that have the same “theme” was a lot harder than I thought– that is, when you are limited to Netflix instant download choices.

I searched Ireland-location movies, thrillers, movies that star the main actress with the name Jessica, twin movies… Nothin.

Finally I found 4 movies, with the word “Wedding” in the title.

And soooooo… I watched:

1) I had seen this movie a long time ago. Hilarious! Love the intro. Forgot that it ended so sadly.

2) Dumbest movie ever

3) Cute! Lots of dancing though, and when its the 3rd movie in, it was a good thing I was organizing some things.

4) Good movie! But. So. Sad.

After the movie-madness ended, I do think it would be a lot more fun/agonizing if you did this with some friends. It didnt seem that bad when you are all alone.

(PS – I plan on having an Ireland-themed movie marathon sometime soon. But I will go out and actually BUY the DVDs. My sister and I are going in October. I found a link here with some options, and I am excited!)

Our HH Critics

Before the episode aired, I was terrified that I was going to be this crazy beech of a sister, ranting and raving about everything I wanted. I mean, c’mon, two ovens were on my wishlist! (PS that was on my “wishlist” but I knew it wasn’t really going to happen. HH Producer took it and made me strongly encouraged me to be very decided on having it.)

I actually think the episode was hilarious, and I wasnt as awful as I imagined I would be.

Well,  my sister figured out that if you search “HouseHunters” on twitter, you can see what people are saying. Aaaaand is it FUN! Hahaha.

Our Critics have this to say about our episode…

Dear chick on Househunters, saying you want to have “tea parties” means you’re too immature to own a home.

Bradley Larcher@bragzter

Thought children alone that had tea parties #househunters

Liz Monopoli@lizmonopoli

I love #househunters but lately the people on it have been stupid.

.. xO *@AmandaSharonxO

If this annoying piggybacking ass little sister doesn’t shut up about her wish list for her sister’s home on #HouseHunters .. Moocher!

But at least I have one fan..

He tweeted twice about me ! Thats all that matters 😉

Frankly LFC@frankly_lfc

The blonde on #HouseHunters Sacramento right now is really cute. Wonder if those cakes she bakes are as good as they look.

Frankly LFC@frankly_lfc

Jessica from #HouseHunters needs to go on a date with me! she’s cute, perky, good sense of humor, and bakes. I’m jealous.

Ahhhaha, I’m enjoying this too much!

PS Tea parties are extremely fun by the way. To quote Shannon…” All tea parties are, is our friends getting together, laughing, eating delicious food, and drinking tea.” How weird is that!?

101 in 1,001

Yes, I did it. I made a list of 101 things I want to get done, in a 1,001 day time-frame. Thanks to Shannon. She created one and got myself and my twin hooked. It’s motivation to get things done! There’s an end date people. A reason why it needs to be done NOW, instead of watching another New Girl episode while on facebook. So, here’s my list… (Oh, and an FYI — it.takes.forever. to think up 101 things that you want to get done while still being realistic of the 2.5 year time frame that you have. Sure, I can think up a 100 things I want to do, but if everyone of them involves traveling, buying, or being an extra in an episode of How I met Your Mother , it wont get done.)

How the heck did he meet their Mom?!

Okay, so my favorite show, of all time, is How I Met Your Mother.




The entire show is based on Ted finding his future wife.

And it drives me crazy.

But, I love it.


PS Please tell me Quinn marries Barney, Robin is marrying her therapist, and Ted DOES NOT end up with Victoria. 🙂
