You Must Not Know About Me...

This is me.

Yo.
I see some new faces, which excites me to no end!! (I may or may have not done a happy dance to Shake it Off...)
So I thought I would share some things about me. For those of you who aren't new, you may not know some of these things either.


I have a new found love for hiking.

I reject anything that involves malted anything.

My husband loves Star Wars. I don't. The force isn't with me. 
Harry Potter is with me.

My go-to drink is a glass of wine (preferably chardonnay). 

I rarely sleep past 7am.

Two things I can't live without? Chapstick and mascara. 

I truly believe in making wishes at 10:10, 11:11, etc...

I don't own cable.

I don't own a red shirt. Or orange. Or yellow. I think I need a shopping trip.

I have never had a beer or soda in my life.

I cannot braid my own hair.

I wear sunglasses to avoid makeup, not to look chic.

It is hard for me to embrace the selfie.

I cannot take outfit photos. It is just awkward.

Fall and Football Season. The best. That is all.


Tell me something I don't know about you!

Out and About

My weekends have been consumed in October!
Basically New Mexico and Football are keeping me busy!

I have been back to New Mexico a couple of weekends to visit family and since Kevin is preparing for his best friends wedding. I got to visit with one of my friends who came back from Africa. Sadly due to Ebola and all that...but I am happy to have her back!
I am sometimes surprised that I write a blog because I am sometimes a wacko friend over emails and texts. I feel bad for anyone that has to read my emails or texts because they are just completely what rolls off the top of my head...and my head is completely nuts.

But I love having friends like her that I can talk to about anything. I don't have edit any of those thoughts that roll out.

This weekend her and my other best girlfriend got together we had a total girls day. It was amazing!

I wanna do it again!
They both just need to move one state over to me!

I also got to see my sweet littlest sister. We were just missing our middle!

My girlfriends and I:

And how bout them Broncos!
Football season is my favorite season.

All of these were on my insta.

Glass of Chardonnay. It is classy and fun and wasn't something I have overdone in terms of all my hard alcohol day.

Buffalo Chicken Salad

I love football season and after a day of non-stop football on Sunday I will always need something easy to make. And healthy. Because lord knows that for one, football food has a reputation of being, albeit good, FATTY. And two, after a day of sitting, you can only hope to have something healthy to eat. 

Therefore, I have a great healthy game day recipe to share with you! I made these for Kevin and I for dinner during the Sunday night game and boy were they a success! Super easy to put together. Best of all, they can be a meal or an appetizer!

I meant to make these as Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps for easy eat while watching the game, but I was so excited with my fantasy football game that I ended up shredding my lettuce before I knew what I was doing. OOPS. 

So Buffalo Chicken Salad or wrap. Your choice. 
You can double this recipe for a good amount of food for a game day appetizer. As soon as I realized I shredded my lettuce, I made my measurements for a two person night of salad.



Ingredients:

1 large chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1 tablespoon of butter
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup of Frank's Wing Sauce
1/2 teaspoon of celery seed
1/4 cup of chopped celery
blue cheese or mozzerella crumbles
ranch dressing
lettuce

Directions:

In a pan, fill bottom with water and put your chicken in the pan. Then put in your chicken breasts and shred the meat as it cooks. The water cooks out during this process. If not completely than drain water when done cooking your chicken.

Add butter and olive oil and stir into meat on medium heat. Add the Frank's sauce and celery seed and stir. Once sauce becomes bubbly, remove from heat.

Add the celery and assemble. Spoon onto bed of lettuce or in lettuce leaves. Sprinkle cheese and drizzle with ranch dressing and serve immediately while warm.

Enjoy!

Plus the chicken is orange for my two teams! Denver and Cleveland.
Flashback:

Have a great weekend!

Things I Will Never Understand

Admittedly, sometimes I get competitive. I consider myself a relatively laid back person, but we all have a little competitive in us and sometimes it comes out at the most random times.

For instance, right now, I am kicking myself in the head for not posting this ages ago. I randomly think of things and just let them sit there as drafts for a while.

So now when I post this, it looks like I am jumping on the bandwagon, instead of having most of this as a draft since July of 2013.

Doesn't matter bandwagon or not I have decided...so therefore, here are some things I will never understand...
'I will never understand rich people with messed up teeth'.

Why people are still confusing too and to, your and you're, etc...
Just learn English and grammar people! Not saying I am princess perfect in this area, but it has gotta stop.

How people can drive for hours not realizing their turn signal is on.
Okay maybe that is an exaggeration but boy self explanatory right, this bothers us all right?!

Mode.
I get mean, median, and range. But what the heck mode??!

Advanced calculus and physics and chemistry.
I get that it is very important and some people understand it and thank God for them!

Not vaccinating your kids.
You can see my rant and reasoning behind that here.
I also think everyone should watch this.

How someone could not like Cards Against Humanity.
A dirty apples to apples!? Count me in! This is when me being a horrible person is an advantage!

Boxed Wine.
Maybe I am a wine snob...if a wine snob can be someone who rarely spends over $10 on a bottle of wine. I just wanna stick with my bottles and not some orangy looking stuff that comes out of a bag/box. #notclassy

Why anyone still uses Internet Explorer.
Are you also using Windows XP?!


Google Plus.
Stop trying to make Google Plus happen...


Why I can't just me F***ing skinny.
Come on pants. Just button...please!

Disclaimer. For these last ones, some of you bloggers may want to beat me up.
Bring it on....

Why people think Apple is superior to Android.
I like to have things my way and not proprietary thank you very much.

The mustache trend.
I mustache you why this is so amusing?!? I don't even like mustaches on men!

The bacon trend.
I mean don't get me wrong, I love bacon, but it is not God's nectar. Why are we so obsessed with bacon?!?


Anyone feel me?
What are some things you have trouble understanding?
