Yesterday we had Kirsten and the kids over for her birthday dinner. I made taco salads, I had a cute fluted style backing pan to heat up large tortilla's to make home-made taco shells. It was really good. For Dessert we had Chocolate Soufflé and since Brandon does not like Chocolate I had to make vanilla pudding also. Who can't love chocolate right?? that is so funny to me.

I made a cute owl bag for my crochet yarn to stash in when I am working on small projects and carry around the house to where I am working at that moment. I love it! I want to make this pattern again for perhaps a small purse for me. Although I have my eye on a darling purse I want up at the Ross where you can get name brand purses for really cheap.
Steve and I bought a really uptown NordicTrack, it's not the top of the line but very very nice and has the iFit. Last night I walked one mile on it. I plan on walking everyday and would like to reach up to 6 miles on a incline, that is my goal. Since we get so hot in the summer and so cold in the winter this is going to be a great! and I can walk all year long no matter the weather.
We really turned the house upside down just putting that in our guest room. First off we didn't have TV in that room, so not to take up so much room Steve built some shelving in the closet to accommodate a TV and all the trimmings including gaming stuff. What a great idea, the TV is all tucked away in the closet that was practically empty and does not end up taking up more space in our guest room after putting in the huge NordicTrack.
We also needed another TV, so he bought a new flat screen and he moved our older TV into the guest room and put the new one in our bedroom.
My husband is superman because this was a very heavy lifting job the weight of the NordicTrack was over 300 lbs.
