Champagne Thursdays?

Has anyone seen the movie Failure to Launch? I like the idea of champagne Thursdays. It sounds like a fun tradition to start. I really like champagne and Thursday is the day my hubby is off work, could I ask for more?

Anyway, the last few days have been a bit busy. I had the absolute pleasure of babysitting my niece yesterday. That is always fun! She is a total cutie and is so hilarious. I had her repeating sentences that were just funny. My parents have some coasters from Outback Steakhouse(yeah, I know that is weird!) that say funny things like, "I am so hungry I could eat a cow." Yeah, I had Ellie saying this! It was hilarious! Your welcome Kris and Greg! She totally wore me out though. I could have used a nap in the afternoon.

Then it was off to Culver's for dinner with Mom and Dad and Ellie and Kris. We called Scott, but he was really busy at work and unable to make it. Ellie is always the center of attention whenever we go anywhere and she always keeps us laughing and smiling. God bless her!

Today was a bit busy also. I got up at took care of the dogs and then got ready to do some much needed grocery shopping. I spent $160 at the grocery store. This is just for 2 people and it will last probably about a week, two if we are lucky! So after shopping I came home and whipped up some lunch for Scott and the boys at work. About 2 years ago I bought a little Pillsbury cookbook that you can buy at the checkout at the grocery store. Anyway, it was a chicken pot pie casserole recipe and I haven't been able to find the exact recipe for the last 2 years. So I went on their website and found the back issue for the book that I had lost and I purchased it. It took a little while to get it, because get this...it was on back order. It is an October 2005 issue and it is on back order...huh? Oh well, I finally got it and was able to make it for Scott and Jon today. They both enjoyed it and almost ate the entire pan. Scott really appreciated it and I love being able to do little things like that for him.

So I am on my own tonight, Scott had a Twins game to attend. He and his dad have season tickets.

Did I mention that we are buying a motorcycle? I really can't wait. I am super excited. I miss our old bike! I can't believe I am saying this! We went to the dealer to look into financing today and are just waiting to hear back if we can purchase some accessories for it before we get it. As soon as we get it, there will be pictures posted. I guess we need to buy new leathers too. We sold them when we sold our last bike. I really can't wait...can you tell?

Gotta run, Raven is outside barking at the neighbor and probably driving him crazy.
