there is a festival called the Arts and Jazz Festival. We look forward to this particular weekend all year long. It is a huge event with over 200,000 people going through in the three days that it is here. It is like no other festival around. There are tons of booths with art and jewelry! Right up my alley! There are several different stages set up around the festival with different jazz bands playing all day and into the night. We like one particular stage that is kind of off to the side of the big crowds. We always go early and set up "camp". You can bring your own food and drinks, so it is a great inexpensive way to spend a day! We meet up with our friends Walt and Amber early at our "spot" so their little boy can run around and play before he poops out.
Prepare yourself because the next picture just might send you overboard. Now if you know me well, you know that I'm not quite ready for babies yet. But man alive, when I saw this little guy my uterus skipped a beat:

1. What was the first car you owned?
Hmmmm...I have never really "owned" a car! haha! The first car that my beautiful and wonderful parents supplied me with was a Toyota 4 Runner. I loved that car ALMOST as much as the Camero they got me for my 17th birthday! I know....spoiled rotten.
Here is Mommy-to-be with her mom and grandma! Don't they all look fabulous?
Have a great weekend~ see ya Monday!

To my surprise, it was way too easy! So easy that I thought that I must have missed a step! Here is what you need:
3-4 lb. whole chicken
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon fresh sage
2 tablespoons melted butter
Stuffing ( I used lemon, garlic, and onion. But feel free to mix it up, I think next time I will try apple and orange)
Rinse your chicken and pat 'er dry. Slice/dice/chop your "stuffing" and stick 'em right in. I know, I felt bad too :) In a small bowl, mix butter, and all of your herbs, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Rub your chicken down with the mixture. Roast at 400 degrees for about an hour. When you pull that chicken out of the oven, let it sit for a good 10-15 minutes to let all of the juices really soak in. Your done! Easy as pie! Yummy, pie....maybe I will make that next week.

I had an incredibly busy weekend, and I fear that I will stay busy for a while. I am an Event Planner for a very large community and the Spring/Summer is full of activities and events. This past weekend we hosted a Shredding Party. We invited all of our residents to come out and shred their sensitive documents. We hired a professional shredding company and they brought a huge truck that they just parked in front of our building. It was pretty neat to watch! They loaded up trash cans full of paper and put it on this lift on the side of the truck, then the lift dumped the paper into the top of the truck where the huge shredder just ate everything to pieces. It was way cool!
Immediately after my little event I rushed to my mom's house where she was helping me host a baby shower for a good friend of mine. I barely made it there in time to get myself dressed and help her do the last minute things. I was at her house until almost 10 PM on Friday night doing the things that we could get done early. Good thing because I don't think that we would have been able to do it all on Saturday. My Mom saved me by helping, I couldn't have done it without her, Thanks a million Mom! I will have pics from the shower posted tomorrow.
Sunday was pretty much a lazy day for me. We were going to do yard work and plant some flowers but it rained all day. That was probably good because I really needed to rest! We went and saw "How to Train Your Dragon" yesterday afternoon, it was super cute! I recommend it to all ages! Ha!
Have a great Monday!

1. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
That's totally easy...Jennifer Aniston. I have always loved her. One of my favorite movies is The Object of My Affection. She is just so darn cute.
2. Did you ever go to summer camp?
Me...camp? Ha! I have never really been one to enjoy being one with nature. Don't get me wrong, I love nature and I respect it, but you will not find me doing any camping of any sort.
3. What sends you running and screaming in the other direction?
Ummmm...if I have to pick one thing, you are going to think that I am so weird, but the sound of someone clipping their toenails makes me want to poke my own eyes out! Ew!
4. What is something you do that drives your spouse nuts?
Haha! He says that I nag, but I beg to differ. I "remind"!
5. What is currently your favorite song?
Do I have to pick just one? There is this alternative song that makes me roll down the windows and sing as loud as I can every time it comes on. It is called Savior by Rise Against.
See ya next week!

We really had a great time doing this for them, and they were so thankful for everything they got! And get this, my mom and I are hosting another baby shower next week for a friend of mine who is expecting. This time we don't know if it's a boy or a girl, so I'm thinking yellow and green?

1. Do you sing out loud in the car when you're driving?
Oh my gosh yes! I pretend that I am on a big stage in front of a million people and that I am actually good. I totally rock out! And anyone who says they don't is lying!
2. What would you never be caught doing?
Well, let me think, I would never be caught doing question #3!
3. Will you go #2 in a public restroom?
No way! Never have and hopefully never will! I like my privacy :)
4. Have you ever broken a bone?
Are you kidding? As clumsy as I am, I'm surprised that I have only broken a few. The most memorable was when I was in 1st grade. I thought it was a great idea to climb across the top of the monkey bars instead of hang from them, can I add that I was in a dress! Right when I got the the middle of the bars I lost my balance a fell straight down, I hit the ground hard. I fractured my arm up almost to my shoulder. They couldn't put a cast on it because of where the break was so I got away with just having to wear a sling. Good times!
5. Do you prefer cooking or baking?
I love both, but if I had to choose it would be, wow that's a tough one. Ummmmmm.....Baking!
