2010 Where did you go?

2010 was a whirlwind of a year~Time flew so fast and things changed so quickly it is so hard to keep straight. I started the year wanting to log 500 miles of workout time in. I was unsuccessful and Cory was successful. I really hope this year proves to be more productive in working out, since I will need to lose some of this baby weight I have gained :)

With that being said, in 2010 I found the best workout ever, ZUMBA. I love it and can not wait to join all the girls again and shake it on the gym floor :)

I never got close to cooking every recipe in the cookbook like I planned but I am very hopeful that this coming year I will be able to make some new recipes again.

I hope Christmas was great for everyone. We had a wonderful holiday and feel so blessed with the arrival of baby Slane coming so soon! I am actually down to 11 weeks left, but that is not to say he won't come sooner :) Here is our family picture with baby Slane in 2010.

Of course, I can not forget to post a picture of the 1st baby furry Slane and his mommy :)

Cory and I are so excited to start 2011 and meet our new son in the next few months. We are excited and nervous about the change but know it will be worth it ;)

Merry Christmas!

First of all, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. What are your plans this year? Cory and I will be going to my parents for our traditional Christmas dinner of prime rib and crab legs, yummo!! I can not tell you how much I look forward to Christmas dinner! I love, love, love crab legs ;) And since I don't eat prime rib I always get more crab legs ;) (See how that works!)

Second thing, baby Slane is doing great and apparently ahead of the growing curve of babies at his stage. He is almost 1 pound bigger then a baby is at this stage. I guess that means two things: one, he is really healthy and two, I might not be going till March. The doctor is watching him closely and if this 'growth spurt' doesn't slow down I will be induced, YEAH!!! I can't tell you how exciting that is for me. That would be mean no more hip pain, no more enormous stomach and I would be able to work out!!! I understand I could work out now but for one thing with the hip pain it really is not that easy and two walking doesn't qualify as working out :) Right now it might since it puts me out of breath but really....I would rather be at Zumba!! Oh Zumba I miss you!!!

Baby Slane

I think this is so funny!

If you haven't checked out check it out! I love this article and still find myself giggling over it a day later :)

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Education released a comprehensive, nationwide evaluation of American schools Monday indicating that attempts to teach absolutely anything to these little shits is just a huge waste of everybody's time.

"We remain committed to providing every student in the country with access to a high-quality education," said Education Secretary Arne Duncan, adding that good schools are a key component to the success of American democracy. "But to be honest, none of that matters. We're not talking about promising young scholars here—we're talking about a bunch of fucking animals."

"We've basically flushed $11,000 down the toilet for every single one of these little bastards," Duncan continued. "Not to mention 18 years of my life."

Secretary Duncan
The study, which analyzed the effectiveness of both public and private schools, found that efforts to enlighten these terrors on the subjects of math, history, grammar, and science are as productive as slamming your head into a goddamn brick wall. The research also confirmed that the unbearable shits, who take everything for granted, consistently piss away each learning opportunity they're given.

"When I first started teaching, I would see the smiling faces in my classroom and get excited about nurturing their young minds," said Melanie Whitman, 35, a first-grade teacher quoted in the report. "Now I can't look up from my desk without wanting to puke at the sight of all those little psychopaths."

Secretary Duncan said the study is the first to provide detailed evidence in support of the theory that third-grader Scott Kriesel is a complete fuck-up and perhaps even the living incarnation of Satan.

According to the report, billions of dollars in federal resources have been spent to modernize classrooms and improve teacher training, even though the little brats spend their entire days carving profanities into desks, shouting at whoever's in charge, and refusing to sit down, shut up, and actually learn something for once.

In addition, research suggests that school boards across the nation have grown tired of fighting to obtain funding for brand-new textbooks only to have the miserable fucks just deface them all with ejaculating penis drawings on the first day of class.

When asked if charter schools might help solve some of the problems faced by public education, Deputy Education Secretary Anthony W. Miller told reporters the data indicated any difference they made would amount to jack shit.

"Some charter schools perform better than their public counterparts, some don't," Miller said. "You can't change the fact that any school, no matter how it's funded, is ultimately just another type of building to contain these goddamn monsters for seven hours a day."

Miller added that more involvement from home was not the answer, either, as the little shits tend to have shithead parents who just make everything worse. The only findings from the study that provide a glimmer of hope, he said, are student absenteeism and dropout rates, which continue to increase.

"Christ, I dedicated my career to my students, actually thinking I could make a difference in their lives," middle-school teacher Joan Kubickers said Monday. "If I'd gone into public relations, I'd be making six figures by now. And at a PR firm, I bet I wouldn't have to worry about my tires getting slashed in the parking lot."

"Well, I have to go," she added. "The fucking hyenas in my third-period class await."

The Department of Education study comes on the heels of a survey last month that found 90 percent of all elementary school students resent being taught by pathetic losers who couldn't get a decent job in the real world.

Big time mile update

Awhile ago I stated that Cory quit logging miles....after he read that he wanted me to clarify that he hasn't quit logging miles, he just quit logging them on my sheet. He has joined a new program at work where he wears a pedometer and logs them on to his system for work. Well maybe I shouldn't have said anything because I had no idea how far he really walks all day here is our mile update with his miles from his work program.

Cory: 618.97
Cassie: 261.92

Ya, looks like I will never catch up with Cory :)

Yummy new recipe!

chicken pot pie Pictures, Images and Photos

Who doesn't like a chicken pot pie? I love them, except for the peas and carrots..ewww! This weekend I made my own pot pie recipe and it was wonderful. Cory even really liked it after he had made a eww gross face when I told him what was for supper ;) Like I said, I don't like the peas and carrots in my pot pie and since I made my own I got to choose whatever I wanted to put in it and it was yummy. The best thing was how easy it was to assemble.

The pie had:

1 can drained chicken
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can drained new potatoes sliced
1 can drained mushrooms
some shredded cheddar cheese (however much you like, I used about 3/4 cup)
a dash of garlic salt
a dash of thyme

I bought a pre-made pie crust and put the first crust on the bottom. After mixing the ingred. in a bowl I added them to the dish & then placed the top pie crust on top. Slit the top for steam to escape in a few places, bake at 400 for 30 min. w/ foil around edges, take foil off bake for 30 more min. and you are done! We had to let ours cool for about 20-25 min. Yummy! A definite rotation recipe for us now :)

Miles update finally...

I swear I have not spent my entire past few months doing this....

Sleeping ZZZ Pictures, Images and Photos

and while my cooking has been put on the backside mostly because I couldn't stand the sight of food, my working out has not. So here is my new update :)


Cory has pretty much gotten tired of logging miles so I have no clue where he is at but I would bet it is around 300 or more.....

Yep, its true ;)

While these pictures are slightly horrifying compared to food blogs that I read all the time, I just had to share a pic. of my 1st cheesecake. It was delicious and divine...and totally sinful. Cory is sad to hear that I will be giving most of it away since I highly doubt we need to eat the entire thing ourselves :) I got this recipe from Bakerella and I think I have found my 'keeper' recipe for plain cheesecake. While my cheesecake did crack, I am not to worried about that. Hey its not like I am the cheesecake factory here.... Have I mentioned before that cheesecake is my favorite dessert in the entire world? Yummy!!!!!!

Cheesecake- (check out this website

2.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted

4 (8oz.) packages cream cheese
1.5 cups sugar
3 Tbsp flour
5 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp lemon juice

* Preheat oven to 325 degrees
* Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar.
* Stir in melted butter until moistened.
* Pour the mixture into a 9-inch springform pan (3 inches tall). Press the crumbs into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of the pan.
* Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove and cool to room temperature.

* To make the cheesecake filling, cream the sugar, cream cheese and flour with an electric mixer on medium until light and fluffy.
* On medium low, add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition.
* On low, add sour cream, lemon juice and vanilla just until combined.
* Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes at 325.
* Make sure to take it out of the oven before the center looks done. It will be kind of wobbly and it will move in one piece. The center will look more shiny than the edges. That’s ok because it will continue to cook a little while it’s in the pan.
* Remove from the oven and let cool completely to room temperature.
* Hope that it doesn’t crack.
* Go ahead and separate the cheesecake from the sides of the pan by running a knife around the edges. I also opened and reclosed the springform pan to help separate.
* Chill in the refrigerator overnight. That’s right. It’s best to make this the day before because it needs plenty of time to chill and firm up.

stupid html...

Ok, so I figured out that my template design was not compatible or something and that's why I couldn't get backgrounds to go up. Now I have one but I will have 2 logos up top because I have no idea where the cutest blog on the block one is coming from, I have deleted all that stuff. Oh well! No biggie :) Thanks everyone!

Sunday, August 1, 2010


For some reason I can not figure out where the photobucket has been deleted or moved box came from in the middle of the screen....sorry super annoying. Hopefully I will get it deleted soon!

First picked veggies!

I have been super excited about our garden this year! It seems like one day I had nothing to now a garden full! We have 19 jalapenos, 2 banana peppers (so far), zucchini, rhubarb and tomatoes!! Here is a pic of a zucchini and jalapeno I picked on Friday ;)

And I don't know if you remember the pic. of my tomato plants that were about the size of a coke can??? But here they are:

Oh and here is a pic of our friend who got to have a sleepover for 3 nights with Kramer this weekend!

And of course, I have to end with a pic of Kman himself!

Cory and I at Denise & Frankie's wedding~Jackson Lake Lodge 7/10/2010

Friday, July 2, 2010

so behind.....

We may just have to re-evaluate our miles ;( Super bummed. Maybe I was way ahead of myself, maybe our butts are parked to much on the couch or maybe we are just super busy. But we are nowhere near our miles that we need to be. So maybe we will hit 250 miles by the end of the year and we will have a new resolution next year....Maybe just maybe 2011 will be the year for 500 miles. But for now here is our update:


On a brighter side guess what my loving husband got me?????

Chelsea and Chuy. Pictures, Images and Photos

Love This.

What's going on???

Hello there!! How is everyone in cyber-space world?? We have been extremely busy, Cory with work, me not so much but lots of other stuff!

Where to begin? Well I and my friend Amanda hosted a bridal shower a few weekends ago. We are both Ms. Denise's maids of honor, I am so glad to be paired up with Amanda she is seriously the sweetest girl in the world! Here is a few pics of the shower....we have been planning and planning and nice to have it done.

The theme was head over heels and Denise's colors are pink and black. So naturally everything was in those colors and high heeled theme. Check out this cake!!!

Here is the room....

And the bride to be!

So excited for the wedding, it is going to be gorgeous!

What else is been going on? Not to much. Have tried to plant a few things outside and they have died. I guess I jumped the gun a little but I'm so excited for growing some good stuff and the pretty flowers!! My tomatoes that are in my grow box are doing wonderful though and have grown I would say 4-6 inches already! Look out-we are going to have some tomatoes this summer! (I hope) ;)

Oh ya, I am still going to Zumba steady and strong! They are starting a class at 5:30 am and I am pretty sure I will be frequenting that also. I really enjoy that class and if I could do it 7 times a week I would! Oh ya, so here is a pic of last nights class...can you spot me? Cory did immediately....sigh...Love him!

Oh ya, also if you are a work out girl/guy like I am trying to be you are going to love this stuff!!

Seriously...check it out. I love it...I look like I have left a sauna after wearing it but it makes the workout seem that much sweeter!

Oh ya and one last thing going to check this out this weekend! So excited ;)

As many of you guys may know I went to Vegas for a girls weekend! We had alot of fun and I am really glad I went. I was very hesitant about going...I felt really bad about leaving Cory home but after much persuasion and begging from friends they talked me into it. Here is a pic that I really liked from the trip :)

My plant babies and fur baby :)

I got a little ahead of myself and planted tomato plants so now they have to sit in the kitchen until its warm enough for them to go outside. I will post more pictures if they actually produce tomatoes at the end of the summer. And of course you can't have enough pics of Kramer!

Thursday, May 13, 2010

blah blah blah

Doesn't Kramer find the oddest places to sleep? I actually feel sorry for him but I guess he chooses to sleep like that, I swear he has more room then this if he so chooses :)

Update on cooking!!

I have made a few recipes out of my cookbook and its going well! Last night I brought an anti-pasta to book club and the girls loved it! They were pretty excited about my new mission with cooking the entire cookbook and thought I should also blog about it :) I just don't feel like I have enough to say or am witty enough to do that but I will keep everyone posted!

Next month I host book club and I am super excited! I have a few recipes I will be trying out on all the girls!! Not all of them are from my cookbook challenge but seriously I have about 10 gazillion recipes that I want to try so I can not only make things from the cookbook ;) I get to choose the book since I am hosting that month and I chose Hungar Games. I hope it is pretty good!
