In need of a quick fix

Since I'm a working woman and take a class on Tuesday nights, I find myself about 3 out of 5 nights a week NOT wanting to cook anything time consuming. Now, I have this wonderful machine called a Crock-Pot, brand new, un-used. Recently it dawned on me...I should take advantage of the fact that something could cook dinner for me while I'm working!

Here's the catch...I need recipes!!

So, here's where you come in. What are some of your favorite crock-pot recipes??

Crazy? Maybe....

If you know Dave, you know that he loves his toys, and the word "toys" encompasses a wide variety of things, such as cars, trucks, jeeps, parts for any of these vehicles, surround sound systems, computers, televisions, and anything that he enjoys. If you know me, you may know that I've always liked toys, just never had the means, or reasons to get them. Until I married my husband. In the last 6 months, we have purchased a new truck, which quickly had exhaust, tint, and a new grill. The lift, tires, and wheels are in the works. We have combined our things to have two iPod's, three computers, two surround sound systems and four digital camera's, two DVD players, I'd like to welcome a new member of our "toy" family....

Our 60" Sony Flat screen T.V. Yes, I know, some of you may be saying "But Sarah...you live in an apartment!" Yes, I know, I know. But, we put much thought into this, and when we buy a home (hopefully in the next year) we won't want to spend $$ on a T.V. It will most likely go towards hardwood flooring, or landscpaing, or couches, or something else....SO, in the meantime, we can enjoy life large, and in HD.

Oh, and I got this cute Media Stand to hold all the goods. I thought it was perfect!

Happy <3 Day

For V-Day, I came home from work to find these beautiful flowers on my kitchen table. Dave did good! I also came home to find that Dave had given himself a little Valentine's day present....New Wheels. He's been wanting, and needing, new ones. The old one's had spacers and were making the tires wear un-evenly and a whole bunch of other mumbo jumbo. SO, now we have pretty shiny Foose wheels, thanks to a hook up at his old job. Then we headed out to Lucille's BBQ, where we met up with Leslie, David, Dan and Coco. Lucky us we called ahead and were seated in less than 10 minutes! Genius. Dinner was delish...or at least I'm guessing it was. My taste buds quit working earlier in the day (and still refuse to cooperate and let me taste anything). After our lovely dinner Dave and I finished off our night with a romantic trip to my favorite place, Target! I don't think I've ever seen it so empty! We left with a new candle holder and candle to put on a little table in our hallway. I'll post pictures of my little space when I finish it this week. I hope everyone else had a
great day!

Happy Valentines Day everyone. I write this as I sit at work, bottle of water close by, cough drop in my mouth and tissues by my side. But besides working with children all day and having no voice (which can actually be nice), it's gonna be a good day! We'll see how things go later, but for now the plans are to stay in, make dinner, I'll whip up some cupcakes and goodies, light some candles, and relax. Dinner out tomorrow sounds good to me. I hope everyone has a great day filled with someone or something you love!

Catching up

I've been a total lagger! So pardon the mass amount, but here are my day's 8, 9, 10 & 11 of things I love.


Enough said!


Fresh flowers on my kitchen table.
Usually bought from the above mentioned place.


I found this perfume at a little place in Uptown Whittier called Pour Le Bain. It smells so crisp and yummy! Mmmm....

The California weather the past few days! It's sunny, warm, but not in a hot overbearing way, and makes me want to be out and about.

Love #'s 6 & 7

Ok ok, so I kinda didn't have time for my daily blog yesterday.

So I guess Dave was right.

Oh well, I'll make up for it today!

Love #6

American Idol, and the auditions.

Especially the BAD ones!

Love #7

I don't love it because it's "Diet"...I just love the taste.

Is it just me or is it totally addicting?!

Love #5

I'm hungry...can you tell?
Dave introduced me to Moreno's when we first started dating, and i'll admit, I didn't understand what all the to-do was about. But after the second and third try, I found my favorite dish and have been hooked ever since. Plus, we have our favorite waiter Ricardo, who totally knows us. I don't know about you, but I LOVE becoming a regular somewhere and being known. And the perks of complimentary guacamole` with our chips and salsa isn't bad either!

Love #4

Dave says I wont be able to keep up on blogging every day with something I love.
He's probably right. But just not today.

#4...I love, cute polish colors. On my hands and toes.

Speaking of, I'm gonna paint my nails!

14 days of Love

I saw this on someone's blog, and thought it was a cute idea! For each day before
you post about something you
So, i'm a few days late starting this...so I'll post 3 things so I can catch up.

#1...Of course I have to start with the obvious....

#2...These great wide leg trousers from The Gap, which looks fierce with cute heels...

And #3... Getting my hair done...and getting blonder.

And yes, I'm sitting in a tire. The tire of this monster truck that Dave's friend built.
