Week #5

Week 5 of my Pic-a-Day challenge is here! Go here to see previous challenge posts!

Day 29: Today we had a family birthday party, that we have a few times a year, to celebrate mine, my uncle's, Phil's, and my cousin's wife, Arianna's birthday! It gives us a good excuse to get together and catch up with eachother even though we live right next door. My little cousin, Asyra, is way too cute. She has a little 3 year old crush on Phil. She kept saying "I like Phil.", "I missed Phil, I was worried about him." and "He's part of our family.", it was heartwarming. I loved how she sat in my lap and cuddled me while we all sat around making our family fantasy football teams. It makes me that much happier that I can be around home and see her more often.

Day 30: I made a delicious meal for me and my parents! I had wanted something noodley and creamy and this is what I came up with. I sauteed some peppers, onions, and carrots. Added the broccoli and cauliflower from the microwave bag (didn't have fresh) and a can of diced tomatoes. I then poured in a jar of the Ragu Light Alfredo Sauce and added half a box of cooked macaroni noodles. I seasoned with garlic, dill, salt, and pepper! I had some leftover for my lunch the next couple of days too.

Day 31: I've heard other people complaining about these so called "stink bugs" this year, but it wasn't until about a week ago that they started to come inside our house! I found like 5 in our kitchen the other day... ewww!

Day 32: Today my mom, aunt, and I went to an estate sale near our house. I've always wondered what this house looked like inside so this gave me an excuse to find out! Mom and I ended up leaving with this director's chair and Marshall helmet clock! Can't wait until I have a house to decorate!

Day 33: Mom and I went to buy some of her favorite flowers, mums! I love them myself, especially the rusty orangey ones like these.

Day 34: Some Fridays I drive to Phil's house to spend the weekend with him and his family. I always look forward to the drive on nice days so I get to listen to 99.9 FM cause it usually plays a good mix of old and new songs. Sundays, when I drive home, I like to listen to Delilah no matter how cheesey it can be!

Day 35: Phil and I decided to take a drive to Point Pleasant, WV which isn't too far from his house. This is the home of the Mothman and the Mothman statue! I found out that the weekend before we were there that they had the Mothman festival... too bad we missed that! You can learn about the Mothman here, there was even a movie called "The Mothman Prophecies" based on it!

  • So I had a pretty good week! Did you do anything fun this past week?

The veggie noodles look good. The stink bug does not.

I had never heard of those bugs until last week! They were everywhere at work!
