Thirsty Thursday?

It's been one of those weeks where I could really use a glass of wine or a good margarita but I have no wine and no tequilla so water is going to have to do.

This is a very interesting or witty post. It's more of word vomit post about everything going on in my life this week. So I'd like to apologize now, if you're looking for witty and fun try me back on Sunday.

K spent most of the week in Atlanta and I've been exhausted from work so our house chores have fallen to the way side. Shocker. I don't know how people work full time, cook homemade meals, and take care of kids and dogs?!?! I can barely take care of the two of us and our little townhouse.

I hate cooking but I've been inspired by Mrs. Everlasting from It is Everlasting because she makes the most delicious looking dinners and I'm pretty sure my husband wants me to more like her and less like me when it comes to dinner which is Go make yourself a bowl of cereal or microwave a lean pocket if you're hungry. So I found a little variation of her turkey stuffed peppers here. They actually turned out ok, not just ok they were good and K loved them. He was like this is the dinner I'm looking for.
So if any of my other BFFs out there have any good recipes for me I would love to hear them!! I need some delicious tried and true recipes! Email me: eastcoastnat (at) gmail (dot) com

My co-worker and good friend quit about 3 weeks ago to pursue a new venture so I've had a new girl for the past 2 weeks that I've been training and working with. We've been so busy and it's been so hard to train and try to do my own work at the same time. It's just been exhausting and I miss working with one of my best friends :( I didn't realize how much I would miss her until she was gone. We still talk over email and on the phone but it was so nice to have a friend in the office.

We got a few pieces of hand me down furniture from my parents last weekend and we have some rearranging to do this weekend. I plan to share house pictures once I finally put everything in it's place!!

We are hosting "Friends Thanksgiving" this weekend. This is the first year we are doing this but basically it's 6 couples having a pot luck Thanksgiving. We are hosting because we're the only couple that doesn't live in an apartment or condo so we have the most space. I'm so excited, it should be a lot of fun! Luckily I'm just in charge of Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie, and my signature cookie : The Ginger Crinkle. I will share the recipe for them on Sunday. They are AMAZING if you like ginger.

It's K's 28th birthday on Sunday so that will be tied in with Friends Thanksgiving celebration. I got him a cake made and I'm so excited to see it. I don't want to spoil it but I promise to share pics! I got him Bruce Springsteen tickets for his present, I tried to surprise him but he totally snooped around and figured it out about a month ago! I didn't know he was such a snoop totherwise I would have done a better job hiding it.

I think I'm going to copy some other bloggers and have a blog yard sale. I have some clothes that I've barely worn that some of you might want!

I think I have to give up caffeine. I might have to join a support group to get through it but I think I have no choice. Over the past year I've become more sensitive to caffeine I used to drink a 20oz coffee or 2 diet cokes every morning (before 10am) and now half way through one cup of coffee I'm shaking and totally off the wall. Plus I think it increases my anxiety and I tend to be on edge and over react easily. I also think it contributes to my insomnia. I'm not ready to break up with caffeine yet. It's going to be hard but I think it's best for me.

Oh and me and my sister are totally hitting up Michaels and Kohls this weekend for holiday decor and cookie tins so I can make my 100 dozen cookies to take to Kyle's family for Thanksgiving. I can't wait to start baking, it's the best excuse to eat cookies, I mean I have to try every batch right?

Oh the most important part of my week. I dropped a small fortune on highlights and a hair cut! I'm no longer Malibu Barbie blond. Thank god. I got it cut to, but not just trimmed. I chopped it off it's right under my chin. I haven't had it above my shoulders since 2002 and I haven't had it to my chin since 4th grade. I will have pictures to share on Sunday.

If anyone has hung on reading this whole long post I hope I didn't completely bore you to death.


  1. Changing work buddies is soooo hard!

  2. Hopefully another good work buddy will come along! I find it can be harder to find work buddies as we get older (or is it just different companies make for different work buddies?)

    Anyway, have fun of Michael's and can't wait to see the haircut!

  3. Check my blog for three yummy recipes - chicken pesto pizza, meatballs, and fish taco - all made up by moi and deliciously easy!

  4. My husband wants me to be more like Mrs Everlasting, too.

    He hasn't started complaining about our meals out of a box yet, but I think the time is coming....hahah!

  5. Thanks for the shout out! I'm sure there are things that you do that my hubs wishes I did.. like clean! Hahah. Honestly, once you get into the habit of Sunday cooking (or whatever day works for you) it is so easy. I cook a big pot of soup or stew, then make a big entree that he eats throughout the week. We always have pizza crusts on hand to throw together a homemade pizza with leftover veggies at the end of the week. I'm glad you found a pepper recipe you liked!

  6. Can't wait to see pics of the new 'do and also to get that cookie recipe! I love the idea of the Friends Thanksgiving!

  7. QUit caffeine? You are a braver woman than me!

  8. Waiting for pics!!!!! Post soon :D

    And good luck with the caf-kick. I've tried and failed miserably...
