We met in the dorms, Yosemite Tower 6, at Cal Poly, 2002. Strangers at first, crying over missed friends and family, we quickly (or some of us not so quickly) transitioned to close friends, making memories that still make my sides hurt laughing. From the dorms to 1351, we grew closer, laughed, cried, and challenged each other in ways both good and bad. Life continues to take its twists and turns and bring us all to new horizons, but here's to continuing the story...143 1351
So after the post I realized I didn't have an actual 4 leaf clover cut-out so I improvised and used my mini heart shaped one. Not too bad I thought?! J$ - I loved your story, definitely go with the cookies next year, way easier. I was a little jealous about the new stove though. I think Rhe told me you guys bought a house! Congrats, post some pictures for us! Anyhow, here are my makeshift shamrock cookies.
This is a day late now, but Happy St Patrick's day. I figure since I have yet to do more than comment on a blog, its my turn... After working a long day at the hospital and being told ALLL day "you must be Irish, with that red hair" and with the delivery of my new stove, I decided to give the corned beef and cabbage a try. Not realizing that it takes 3+ hours to cook that beef thing, dinner was ready at 10pm and was NOT worth the wait! I wish I had a picture to show you ladies. I pretty much filled up on cabbage and red potatoes. If you haven't yet, I don't recommend trying corned beef, it is SUPER salty and SUPER fatty. Needless to say I think Chewy (the dog) got the most enjoyment out of the meal.
Next year I'm going with Lisa's St Patty's idea...shamrock cookies!
My Mexican blood has never made me a huge participant in the St. Patrick's Day celebrations, but this morning, after Sarah's nice gchat message (ps thanks!) I started thinking about this day in college. My first memory was freshman year, any takers? Rhe? Hahaha. I still remember walking into our dorm room filled with people sipping on their Guinness'. That was fun...who did buy that beer anyways?!? We were all like 19 - minus Leilani. Anyhow, then I remembered more specifically a green outfit and going to Mother's and then coming home and eating probably an entire batch of monkey bread. Somehow I still fit in jeans back then that are way out of my league now. Not fair. I was trying to remember if that was the night of the crazy bathroom scene?!?
Today I am going to celebrate by making four leaf clover roll out sugar cookies for the hubs since I have the day off. Maybe I'll take a picture if they turn out. Anyhow, I just wanted to say hi and that I really mean to post on this but I've had this cold from hell that won't go away and basically takes over my life. Kinda, sometimes I'm dramatic when I'm sick. I love you all and will promise to be a better poster, I don't want this blog to fail one month in!
I really wanted to share with you guys that I bake now. Seriously, it may seem weird because the smell nauseates me...but it's WAY fun. I received a kitchen-aid mixer for my birthday and I make all kinds of things from scratch, even desserts. It's kind of my thing. I haven't really gotten the frosting part down (if you have any tricks, please let me know), but the fact that my cupcakes are fluffy and pretty makes me super excited. When I started baking this evening and was like...the girls would get a kick out of this. If you're ever in the mood for sweets (sorry J, I heard about what you gave up for Lent)...let me know, I'll send them to you!!! xoxo
