It's been a long time since I've blogged. I've been funky. Not in the good way either. I've just been in Jenny-land... Reading.

Yes, that's all I've been doing for the last, well, 2+ weeks.

I'm averaging about a book a day. *nods* I know, I know.... But it's all I have to do, especially at work. I know, I know, you are jealous. Don't be. It's boring. ESPECIALLY when you used to be busy enough to almost drive you insane...... But then, I can't really complain. I AM reading at work... getting paid to read. I'm just really bored.

I will try to be better. Tomorrow I'll have an awesome Happy Happy photo blog for you even! *nods* (Unless I'm reading.... Kidding!)



Happy Happy #9 - I love Lunch!

Especially with awesome coworkers! Amanda and I went to California Pizza Kitchen and sat outside... and (omg) enjoyed the weather! It's been raining here more days in June than it's been nice, so it was a great sunny lunch!

There is Amanda with her Red Velvet Cake... And I had a hot fudge brownie sundae! I don't know how I ate half of it even after my delicious Focaccia and Pizza though. I practically waddled back into work!

Regular Pepperoni Pizza and Garlic Cheese Focaccia with Checca! YUMMMMO!

Catch-up + Ketchup

I'm feeling a little whelmed. Not quite over-whelmed... just sort of whelmed.

You don't think that's a real word? Really..? It is. But I only know because I looked it up here.

Thank God for or I'd make many spelling grammars.... and my writing would be interminable, irksome, and insipid (aka boring).

Back to the point, I'm whelmed. My list is getting longer. I'm not freaking out yet, but I could... If I felt the need.

Since the painful dry socket (13 days of agony!) from getting my wisdom tooth out, I've been struggling to catch up.... I was worthless for that whole ordeal. I don't know how anything got done. I was a zombie... Sleep, wake up, shower (sometimes no shower), go to work, leave work early because I was in pain, take a bunch of pain meds in between all those and then pass out.

Now the catch-up! Pray for me, people! Virtually kick me in the rear to get me moving.

Oh, for the Ketchup thing. I just really like it. Even on my carrots!

Love you! ♥


Happy Happy #8 - Gooselake Market, Take 1

Note: There are a lot of pictures because it was all so much fun!

This last weekend, I did my first "Farmers/Artisan Market" at Gooselake Farm in Elk River, MN. It was rainy. It was dreary. And the peacock was noisy. He was so loud that I didn't want to risk getting close to him.

Here is Dee with her wares. She may have been getting sick of all my picture taking by this photo...... :D (Click the photo to get directed to her Etsy shop!) And we saw Belly Dancers! It was pretty sweet!

Here are a few pics of my jewelry!

The llamas were not friend and DONKEY (in Shrek's voice) wouldn't even come near me! I think they didn't like my umbrella!

The chickens swarmed you if you got a handful of feed corn from the machine! Kind of freaked me out at first... especially the big ol' roosters! But the day was complete and utter perfection when I found the best pickle in the world. Ask Dee, she'll say the same thing... Delish!

Happy Happy #6 - True Blood Season 2

Ok, I know, I know, I'm a bit of a nerd. I'm going to buy this tonight! I wish I had pre-ordered it weeks ago, but I didn't!

I've read all the books this series is based on... I even want to buy the Team Eric shirt. Call me a nerd, I don't care. :D

Happy Happy #5 - Happy Birthday to Iggie!

My (*favorite*) nephew turns 3 today! Little Ignatius is getting so old....

I remember when he was born. I remember getting choked up, thinking that my little sister made this perfect (not-so)little baby boy.

And I've watched him grow... I've taught him things. I especially love when you ask him "Who is your favorite aunt?" and he says "Auntie Jenny". Yeah, I did that.

Also, when you ask him "Guess what?"... He says
"Chicken butt!"

I couldn't love this kid more if he were my own.

So, Happy Birthday, dear Iggie. I love you tons!

"I'm running... running... running...."

And walking in the grass with Uncle Joe

No rest for the wicked...

I must be very bad. Or really unprepared.... Or a procrastinator. It's probably one of the latter, but I'm leaning towards the very last one!

I had a big ol' craft show this weekend. I slept for 4 and a half hours before it. I don't know what I was thinking. I need to learn to plan my time better!

That's really all I have today, since I'm yawning and stretching and thinking about getting another Pepsi........ :D


Something you may not know about me...

I really love Mexican food. Tacos, chimichangas, salsa, but especially enchiladas....

The cheese! The sauce! The onions and chicken! It's just the perfect little meal! Add some rice and you can't go wrong... Add some beans and you could, but still they are good!

On Sunday we tossed some chicken breasts on the grill... I halved them, seasoned them spicily (is that a word?) and we didn't eat them. I saved them until yesterday for my enchiladas!

I microwaved the tortillas, chopped the chicken and a whole onion. Then as if I were my own assembly line, I made three (yes, THREE) pans of enchiladas. And it took me less than an hour to prep, create and bake all three pans.

Thank God for cans of enchilada sauce, shredded cheese and pre-cooked chicken.

My sister makes her own enchilada sauce, but I'm too lazy for that! Also, I mix a larger can of the mild to go with the hot. It comes out perfect that way!

If any of my awesome readers has a recipe for deep-fried or pan fried chimichangas, you just let me know!


Something you may not know about me....

I'm really in no hurry to get married. Really, I'm not.

I'm 27 years old. I don't have any kids, nor do I want any before I'm 30. I have a job I hate, but I'm working on being self-employed. I have a great boyfriend of 3+ years, who is great. Oh, I said that already. We live with my dad, which is ok. (Really, it is ok!)

What's my rush?

What started this rant? Joe's (the boyfriend) friend, also my insurance agent, just told me that our good friends just got engaged. Just last week I said to Joe that they had been dating for 6 months less than us....

So. He didn't tell me about the engagement because I said that. Really?

How many times do I have to say I'm in no hurry....? And I'm okay waiting for all the good things coming to me... That I'm working for...?

Oh, you men, you drive me nuts!


Oh, carp....

Um. 9 days, people. 9 days until my craft show... And since I've been part of the advertising team, I know it's going to be pretty busy! *eep*

I have stuff in stock... I really do, but I'm trying to be a little bit more organized and make things that are similar and coordinating. The same design of earrings in different colors... and necklaces the same way... You get what I'm saying.

I know what I need to have for set-up and everything, but the time, there is just so little of it! *eep*

Pray for me, people. I need all the support I can get!


Happy Happy #4

Oh, GOSH! I've been running around like a maniac in preparation of a big ol' craft show coming up in two weekends.... And I've been neglecting my blog(s). I need a happy today though... so here are my boys! :D

Joe and Iggie playing in the grass at the lake.... Iggie loves his Uncle Joe.

This is Brutus. He's in the sink. Water theme for ya.... :D

Something you may not know about me....

I've been really busy. When I'm busy, I don't blog. Don't hate me! Sorry!

Also, Reese's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups aren't as good as the original. But barely not as good.


Something you may not know about me....

I really love the chicken nuggets from Wendy's. I probably eat them once a week. It's a sick, sick obsession. True story.


Happy Happy #3

I love lunch. Not only do I get to eat, which is one of my favorite pasttimes... (And the size of my bootay is proof) But I get to see my nephew and sister! Aren't they just cute?

Something you may not know about me....

I'm so annoyed at myself for forgetting to do this weeks Happy Happy post!

Also, never order a large anything from McDonalds! A belly just can't handle it! It just makes a girl sick. Namely, me.


Happy Happy #2

It is a dreary day in Minnesota... It's raining. I haven't even seen a peek of the sun.

I can't wait for Spring, so, in an effort to boost my mood, I created a treasury on Etsy full of plants and flowers! I can't help but smile at all the pretty colors...

And I know it won't be much longer until the grass is green and flowers are blooming!

Current Want

Look how pretty these babies are!

Before you start thinking about how painful they must be, you have to know: I have incredibly high arches and wearing high heels is actually more comfortable for me. Pain for you is comfort for me.

And they are just so loverly.... To shop or not to shop? That is the question.

How can you be down and sad with a face like this beaming at you? Oh, wait. You can't.

Something you may not know about me....

I really, really, really... No, I mean REALLLLLLY... hate barfing. (Sorry, I can't think of a better word. Vomiting seems so technical) So, for two whole days this last weekend, I was in utter hell.

I can handle being sick... I can stand the aches, the pains, the feeling like my brain is in a vice-grip. I, even, don't mind laying on the couch under six blankets because I can't get warm even though I'm sweating.

It's that sudden oh-shit-I'm-going-to-be-sick-don't-let-me-barf-all-over-my-clothes-or-the-floor-or-Joe. (I have to admit, it'd be funny to barf on someone, but also icky. That's besides the point) You have no warning sometimes! NONE! And then you are scrambling for some receptacle so as not to ruin the floor.

AND! I forgot this before, why does it have to be so violent that I pull half the muscles in my back! I was in more pain from the muscles two days later than I was from the actual heaving.....

Now, as I sit here typing this, thinking about how nasty a blog about barf is, I know I'm not alone in my hate for this nasty act. I know you are sitting there, cringing, maybe gagging a bit, but I feel like I needed to rant a little.

A mental heave, if you will.

Now, go, have a good day! Just think - At least you aren't hugging the porcelain. Any time you aren't, life is good.


Simple Fact

Homemade Blueberry muffins are better than any other muffins anywhere ever infinity.

Also, my sister is the devil since she's been baking mountains of muffins in the last two weeks.



Ok. In an effort to keep my business blog focused on, well, business, I decided I needed a whole new blog. One where I can ramble incoherently (like normal) and curse (like normal) about my day-to-day activities and life......

Here she be! Jenny Bunny's Brain... It's a little different!

Thanks to Winn for my cute banner. Funny, right?

I posted some older posts from my other blog: Jenny Bunny Creations Blog on this one since they weren't business related...
