Deb: You get to pick one item from my Etsy store. There is one small condition though! I did a show today and therefore have to update my Etsy store. So, please don't pick your item until Monday! I'd hate to tell you that I don't have it :o)

There we are, me and Bill. Are you taking a double take? I promise that is not Bill with a previous svelte lady. Nope, that is me when I previously used to be a svelte lady. It's crazy I tell ya. Pictures like this are the kind that need to be mounted on my refrigerator! This was after my first very successful adventure with Weight Watchers. Well, successful in the sense that I took all the weight off, not so successful in the keeping it off department. I'm about 135 in this picture.....I won't even begin to tell you what I am now but I potentially ate this girl :o)
I started back with WW yesterday, so I'm going to keep looking at this picture to get motivated. It's going to be hard this time around with the knee and all, but there really hasn't been a time when it hasn't been hard. Well, except for the time that I did it before this picture. That time was easy, but I was young then.
Wish me luck!

Ouch! I think that hurt me more than it hurt you. There is so much going on in this picture. First off, we have a laser background. I remember that this was an actual option and you know what...I picked it. Heck, I not only picked it but I wore a Bongo shirt that actually matched it, and hoop earrings that matched that. Heck, if we could get close on the rubber bands around my braces I have a feeling they would be purple as well. Plus, I also had a fresh perm which allowed me to perfectly tease my bangs up in some sort of gnarly wave that probably took an hour and an entire bottle of Aquanet to perfect.
On a side note, today is National Cheeseball Day and I think you are celebrating it perfectly by reading this blog posting. Enjoy!
*sorry this is late, I know some of you have been dying for this pic. Internet problems aren't good for blogging.

Now it is my turn to pay it forward for you! Here's the deal. Leave me a comment with the answer to this question: If you were laid up at home for an extended period, what would you do to keep yourself from going crazy and throwing the tv remote at Oprah? Poor Oprah! I do like her show sometimes, but when one is laid up at home and doesn't have many options at 4pm one does realize just how much Oprah can be taken in before one goes a bit bonkers.
For those of you that are still having problems figuring out the comment, you can just go the easy anonymous route. Keep in mind though that you NEED to put your name somewhere in your posting text though because I'd hate to have anonymous be the winner! I'll pick a winner at random and this person will win their choice of one item from my Etsy site Bouton Blue. Cutoff for leaving a comment is Friday the 18th at 12:00pm. The winner will be announced shortly afterwards on my blog so stay tuned.....it could be you, or you, or you, or maybe even you!

When I heard that there was going to be a reunion, the first thing I did was laugh. Then I got nostalgic, then I laughed some more. The one thing I do know, is I have to go to the concert if they tour. Completely ridiculous, but that's why I have to go. It will make me feel young again, and lord knows after walking with a cane and walker in the past 6 months feeling younger is something I desperately need! Keep your fingers crossed that they come to my town because that is sure to be a great blog post. Also, keep your fingers crossed for Bill that I don't take up wallpapering again!
Since I know you're curious I will go ahead and confess which one of these guys were my favorite. Are you ready? Think of what Bill looks like and make a guess. Did you guess the taller guys, maybe one of the Knight brothers? Nope, you would be wrong! I liked Danny. He would be the one on the far right of the above picture. The one that is short and kind of looks like a monkey...yeah, I had good taste when I was 12!

I started first with the cake. I have some cake making under my belt and I have to admit that this was one of the easiest from scratch cakes that I have ever made. It's made in a jelly roll pan so comes out a bit like a brownie. I couldn't wait to try it...but was trying to be pc and saving dessert for after dinner.
I moved onto the Marlboro Man sandwich, also a super easy recipe! I used some of my own creative skills and whipped up some pesto pasta (skills being jar of pesto and cooked pasta) and steamed artichokes. By the time the sandwiches were done the house smelled delicious and the guys were drooling.
The sandwiches were INCREDIBLE! Both of the men loved em and I had a sweet love affair with the sandwiches myself. Chris actually said he felt as if he needed a cigarette after eating the sandwich and both of them helped themselves to a second sandwich. Bill then started coming up with all the other recipe options he could using the meat. Marlboro Man Rice Bowls, Marlboro Man Tortilla Wraps, Marlboro Man Egg Scramble.
Since both of them ate so much for dinner, they had no room for cake. Lucky for me, I did! This cake is sooo yummy and since it was soo easy to make it was definitely the best ever! I took a picture of the cake, which does it no justice so you'll just have to go the the PW website and appreciate the beauty of her photos!
Now I have my second PW meal under my belt which means I'm going to be even more addicted to this website. If you haven't checked it out yet....it's a must. If you cook, make some damn recipes!

What is it? Well, it's really just a little ceramic crock of butter....but again I already started this post by saying I was a sucker. I got it cause the crock was very nice and cute and I thought it was something I could use later for salt. I figured I'd pay just as much in a kitchen store for a salt crock and this one was prefilled with butter! The store actually has the butter refills too, so I guess if I end up hooked on this butter then I can refill the crock.
I know, I'm an idiot!
