Ask & You Shall Receive

Hi friends!

Do any of you question yourself whenever you write the word receive?

I am pretty sure the whole "i before e, except after c" is not a no-fail rule, so I get really anxious about "receive." But, according to my blog spell check, the rule does work with this word.  Don't say I don't teach you anything! ;)

I just wanted to pop in and say hi! Happy Thursday to you all! It is almost the weekend! Woo to the hoo.

It has been a very long day of Bar prep over here...and I am finally relaxing on the couch with a mayjah food ba-by ba-by, ba-baby ba-by (sung to Salt-n-Pepa, obvi!).

I'm not sure what it is about my make-up, but I can make an award-winning food baby, and I always have lots of fun jokes to go along with it that probably wouldn't be appropriate to mention on here since I know family reads this (sorry guys!!).

So, Justin got his wish tonight...


This occasion has its own theme song in our household, but the tune doesn't quite translate via blog (maybe I could vlog it sometime).

Yesterday, Justin tweeted me that he wanted to have taco night soon.  Yes, that's right, my boyfriend tweeted me.  We are so 2011.

Since we all know the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and Justin rarely makes specific meal requests, I happily obliged!

I put together some lean ground beef, hard & soft tortillas, cheese, shredded lettuce, Mexican rice, salsa, and grilled red/yellow peppers & onions.

{Voila! It's a taco bar!}

Holy moly!

Why is it that taco night always ends up being so much more work than I think it's going to be?  By the end of this prep, our kitchen was a disaster, and I needed a draaaank.

Thankfully, taco night is so darn delicious and so darn worth it.

I would have taken a picture of my plate, but somehow my food managed to eat itself before I could get my camera.  Oops.

I now have a very full belly, a happy boyfriend, and I am about to relax with some RHONY! :) Really, does it get much better?

Have a nice evening & I'll see you all on fuuuhhreaksie deaksie Friday!




  1. Yey for taco night! It was my favorite as a kid and now Nick and I have started making it with some awesome TJ's soy chorizo. There really is nothing better!

    Good luck with all your bar prep! :)

  2. UMMM..I totally second guess myself with that word! I write it all the time at work and I think about 50% I do it wrong!!

  3. I really need to jump on the taco night band-wagon. Most nights are pasta or rice nights at our place :-)
