Look what happened now...
Hi everyone! Hope your Almost Weekend is off to a good start!
It's been a really busy/crazy week for me.
But exercise and eating right really help keep the stress down.
And shopping helps too. LOL
There is nothing like coming in from a long day at work to find parcels on the porch. Yeah!
One of the parcels was a new WD Passport 3.0 External HardDrive for my MacBook. Yeah! I can has back ups now! I bought new off Ebay and got a really sweet deal! I love a Bargain! And...
My Beauty Diary Facial Masks - Vit-C Lemon masks. 10 for $13.97 which is really expensive. :( Was from Amazon. My friends swear by them, so I am going to give them a try. I really like the When
10 O'clock Masks. Hope these are as good. You really have to take extra care of your skin when you travel! And...
Saved a ton of money buying a lot of 10 New Copic assorted markers on eBay. I paid around $25.00 (they sell for $7.00 -$10.00each)!! :D
Also bought this new Hologram Nail Polish that everyone is raving about. Cannot wait to try it out! It looks awesome!
I'll post about it when I have time to actually do my nails :(
I also bought stuff @ the Health Food Store & Baby Shop (See blog post on New Braunfels) + The normal stuff this week: Food, Office supplies, Fast Food, etc. But I count all that as Boring. So didn't bother with it. LOL
+ Super Busy week @ Work & trying to spend time with Family & Friends -- so MUCH to do before I leave the U.S. again.
I surprised my family with Beigents this week too. They are not something I make often as it can be pretty messy & I HATE cleaning the kitchen after.
So I know I didn't take any pictures after the dough was rolled out. (I had flour everywhere and didn't want on camera!) I heated the oil in a fry daddy and used a drinking glass to cut the dough in small parts. I deep fried for less than 5 minutes & drained well before sprinkling with sugar. I fry the "ends" too. So I end up with odd shapes, but EVERYTHING gets eaten. :)
It made 3 plates full!
They are MUCH prettier in New Orleans @ Cafe Du Monde.
*Recipe is on the box, its easy- you can do it! :D
After you are finished cooking, make everyone GO OUTSIDE to EAT. The sugar goes everywhere! You will be covered in powered sugar. Serve with Coffee, Hot Cococ or Milk.
We ate on the patio and there was a slight breeze, the sugar went everywhere, hence my shoulder being covered, lol. So don't wear good clothes cooking this OR eating!
(Notice I was not in black for a change even, lol)
One more random thing from this week...
The Texas Weather
3 days apart and look at the temps! 52'-93' Crazy! There was a BIG storm in North Texas (not near my part of the state) Wednesday night. People were killed and a bunch are still missing. Bad, Bad, Bad. Heart goes out those families. :(
We didn't even get any rain. :0 Remember Texas is a BIG place.
And one last thought..
Some of my friends from New Orleans are coming down next month! :D So we are planning adventures, Rick is calling me & that can never be good.. Always leads to trouble...(see Feb Blog Post--Goodbye to my Canon) LOL The time before that; he was here and we were watching TV one night and my Big Screen just up and died WTF?!?...Yes, I blamed him for that too.. LOL
Anyway- got to hide the electronics and go back to the office,
Catch you later-
