Now that things have slowed down for me at work, I've become more lazy I think :) I spent most of today just watching TV, but it was thoroughly enjoyable. Steve is having a "guys night" and I decided to just stay in. I made pancakes and turkey-bacon (delicious!) and watched the MSU Final Four game (very fun!) and some HGTV. I've decided that I want to take up knitting as a hobby. All of the "how-to" columns online seem hard to figure out - I need to have someone teach me. I'm thinking of signing up for a class, but our schedule is practically booked until July!! Today was one of our last free Saturdays for a while. I like having stuff to do, but it does make it hard to add stuff to the schedule.

I am VERY excited for Steve's and my trip to Louisville at the end of April. We're going to go to Bardstown, KY on Friday (use up some Hilton Honors points - this is when work travel pays off!), and see the Makers Mark distillery during the day on Saturday. That night we'll stay in downtown LV here and we're going to blow our own glass Easter eggs on Sunday. I am SO PUMPED!! It'll be nice to get away on a not-very-expensive trip.

Last Saturday we made homemade guacamole and pita chips, and we had Gemma over for dinner. It was really easy and really delicious! I highly recommend making those again - the ingredients are: avocados, pico de gallo (sp?), garlic salt and lime juice. SO easy. And pita chips require cutting up pitas and baking in oven. Add in some easy quesadillas and you have yourself a delicious dinner!

Last night Steve and I watched The Graduate as our Netflix choice. I'm not sure I get it. I guess 40 years ago it was probably "riskay (how do you spell riskay? it's not risky)" to have a seductive older female, but I don't really get the whole story. I'm glad I saw it, but I don't get it.

I'm not sure what else I have to post right now. Oh, I have to admit my newest ummm...not necessarily obsession, but newest thing that I do. I listen to NPR on the radio in my car now. Yes. I do. I'm now just like a 55 year old man (well...and Steve, hehe). But I feel like I just learn so much and my drive is not wasted time anymore!! I am much more well versed in politics now and can fill you in on various things going on whereas before, I would just pretend to understand what you were talking about when you discussed such things :)

All right, off to watch more HGTV and play more online. Have a good week!

1. Risque
2. Woot for NPR! Except for the reporters with terrible voices. Gross.
3. When you go to Louisville, eat at Ramses Cafe on the World. And get the brie appetizer. My stars, their food is FANTASTIC.

I can teach you the basics of knitting if you want. I'm not as good as a class, but i'm free!
