Last Week

So last week we went to a friends house for New Years it was the first time we have gone out for New Years in around 10 years so we didn't know what to expect. It was nice and low key and we sat around playing Cards Against Humanity until Midnight when fireworks were set off and then it wasn't long after we all said our goodbyes.
Otherwise it was pretty laid back and didn't really do anything of note for the week other than got the decorations put away. Oh and I had to get a new monitor my old one died so I don't have a way currently to load pictures other than what is on my phone because when my monitor died it took all my USB ports with it and the new monitors don't have those :( We spent all day looking for a monitor I liked and I ended up just settling on one that functioned that we found on open box discount.

Saturday I played the game of "What's in my kitchen" and made up some pretty awesome chicken enchiladas. I just mixed in some cumin, paprika and chili powder with the shredded chicken because we don't like things very bland around this house. As you can tell it made quite a lot and that was just 1.5 lbs of chicken! Plus I found a box of rice-a-roni hiding in the back of the cabinet.  
Sunday since it was the last day before break so Peter had us pick up some pizza and we watched a movie together though it got stressful at the end as my teenager thought that was the perfect time to talk back to me... I can't wait until she's 30 and realizes her mom is awesome again. 

Hope everyone had a safe and responsible New Year.... Now off to work with me. 


  1. Sounds like you had a fun New Year celebration. We didn't do anything over here except go out for pizza and come home and watch tv (our boys spent the night with their cousin). Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Sometimes a quite night is nice. :) You have a great week too.
