This has been a pretty uneventful week (hence the lack of posts), so I thought I'd start a list of Things I'm looking forward to:

1. Hanging out with the girls this weekend (and probably next weekend too since Ben will be up north hunting).
2. Decorating for Christmas (and yes I will probably do it before Thanksgiving)!
3. Thanksgiving Lunch/Dinner – yum!
4. Christmas – not so much for the presents, but for the fact I get to go home and see my family and friends. I don't get to Oshkosh very often anymore.
5. The Pure Romance party Jana and I are hosting in January.
6. Getting pregnant...whenever that may be. :)

Things I'm not looking forward to:
1. Ben leaving for two full weekends. :(

Pinz's Birthday

Here are a couple of pics from Pinz's birthday party in Wisconsin Rapids. We all had a great time! Neither of them really give you the full effect of my haircut since it's shorter in the back, but you get the idea.

The Three Musketeers glammin' it up with our fake eyelashes.

The birthday girl and our "secret shot."

I know, you're probably wondering why I'm writing a post about meatballs, but I made the best ones last night and had to share. Trying to be healthful, I picked up some Jennie-O ground turkey (the Italian seasoned kind to go with my spaghetti). I've never made anything with ground turkey before but I know it's healthier than ground beef so I thought I'd give it a chance. I threw it together with one bunch of green onions chopped, 3 cloves of pressed garlic, a cup of seasoned breadcrumbs, a couple of small handfuls of grated parmesan (1/2 cup I'd guess), and an egg. Mixed that all up and cooked them in a skillet with olive oil (EVOO if you're a Rachael Ray fan). I tried one and was amazed at how good I'd done having no clue how to make a good turkey meatball. The true test though came when Ben tried them...I believe the quote was, "That is one tasty meatball!" Success! And for those of you who know Ben, I had to make them good because he hates spaghetti. I know, who hates spaghetti, right? But, he does. He didn't eat much of the spaghetti, but he did try it and he downed about 6 meatballs so at least he was adequately fed. :)

I will have hair pics soon, but I didn't take any pictures this weekend so I'm waiting for friends to post theirs.
