TYP July Event | Networking

7 09 2011

Wow.  Soooo it’s been awhile since I posted about TYP but we’re still going strong.  Membership growing everyday!  These pics are from our July event at Kung Fu Saloon on West 6th.  We partnered with Komen Young Professionals for the Cure.  Although the photos are black and white we definitely represented with some pink to show our support in the fight against breast cancer.

Make sure to mark you calendars!  Our next event is Thursday, September 22nd from 6-9pm at Red’s Porch on South Lamar.  Can’t wait to see everyone!  Feel free to use Twitter/Facebook to spread the word.  🙂

The more the merrier!

P is for Pancakes | Munchies

22 06 2011

I woke up this morning with a craving for some sweet sweet pancakes…only problem was I didn’t have pancake mix.  So I thought to myself, it can’t be that hard to make them from scratch.  While it wasn’t hard to make them it was hard to eat them. I was totally disappointed with the recipe I got online.

Do not be fooled by their golden edges. They. were. terrrrrible.

I tried adding more sugar, that didn’t help.

I tried adding more milk, that didn’t help.

I tried adding more flour, that didn’t help.

Martha Stewart would be disappointed.

Feeling defeated, I threw them all out.  I ended up having blackberries and toast with peanut butter and honey instead.  Smooth recovery.

Should you want to try the recipe yourself(although not recommended):

1 1/2 c Flour

1 Egg

1 tbsp Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1 tbsp Oil

1 1/2 c Sweet Milk

Mix together and enjoy with your favorite syrup(or not…just sayin) 🙂

If you have a better recipe please fill me in!  I’m still craving some good pancakes…





Darcie + Josh | Weddings

12 06 2011

 

Darcie and I have been friends since we were in 5th grade.  We’ve been through all the awkward stages of life…body suits, braces and glasses.. then we graduated to loving boy bands and dancing to the Spice Girls…in college we learned a lot about life, love and rootbeer schnapps…and now we’re learning that miles are simply miles and true friends don’t mind traveling(especially to the beach) 🙂

I remember when I first heard about Josh.  Darc was totally smitten.  She didn’t want to leave his side.  And I completely understand, he is her compliment in every way.  If she’s stressed, her calms her.  Is she’s hungry, he cooks for her.  If she needs anything, he doesn’t hesitate to make sure she’s happy.

Their wedding was absolutely beautiful!  The ceremony was on the beach at sunset.  The reception was perfect down to every detail, from the starfish/sand dollar name plates to the sand castle center pieces.  The band kept everyone on their feet and we danced the night away.

My new favorite accessory, fake eyelashes.

Beautiful.

Time for a little bridesmaid fun 🙂

I love these girls!

From Left to Right: Rose(friends since 7th grade), Me, Erin and Jess(all friends since 5th grade)

To Darcie and Josh,

Thank you for letting me be a part of your big day! I love you both so much and wish you years upon years of happiness.  Also, I plan to visit again in August so get excited!!  Love and miss you guys!

More Cowbell | Personal

11 06 2011

“Guess what?! I got a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell!” 

I had a blast at Darcie’s and Josh’s wedding!  The whole event was amazing, from the beautiful beach ceremony to the kick ass reception.

We ended the night with Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline…with the crowd singing at the top of their lungs Darcie was dancing center stage, Veronica was tappin her tambourine, Kirsten was shakin her maracas and I was rockin out on the cowbell.  In the words of Barney Stinson, “It was Legen — wait for it…Dary!”.

Side note: If you don’t watch “How I Met Your Mother,” start immediately!

Check out those killer dance moves! 🙂

Congratulations Darcie and Josh!  I love you guys!

Keep an eye out, their wedding post is coming soon!

Darcie’s Bridal Shower | Engagement

5 06 2011

Can I just start by saying…it was the Best. Shower. Ever.

There were cute decorations…

Tasty beverages…

IBC being my favorite, not going to tell you how many I had 😉

Delicious food…

Meatballs with a teriyaki glaze and potato salad from Red Hot & Blue(another one of my favs) So yummy!

“I love fishes cause they’re so delicious. Gone to go fishin”

Actually that’s a lie.  I’m not a Goldfish fan; I just like the jingle.  I’m more of a cheez-its girl.

Massages…

And….drum roll please…..

…..

…..

…………..

A banana split bar! Oh yeah!

The shower was so much fun!  From the Beach Boys’ songs to the oh so relaxing massages.  We really felt like we were on vacation.  Such a great day!





Mint Milkshake | Munchies

7 03 2011

It’s the return of mason jar milkshakes!

This time Mint Oreo…nom nom nom.

You will need:

*Ice Cream *Milk *Mint Oreos

Side note:  I have always considered myself a Blue Bell girl but in an attempt to be frugal I went with Great Value and let me just say, YUM!  Twice as delicious and half the price? Yes please!

Cookies!  I heart sweets and anything mint 🙂

The mason jar is ready and waiting!

Dominated.

That was D-lish!  Worth every calorie 🙂

I’ve decided I’m going to create a new mason jar milkshake each month.   Let me know if  you have any tasty ideas and I’ll give them a shot.
