My Cat Called Peanut

Image
I think it's time that you guys met Peanut.

 Juuuuusssttttkidding. :) ha
This is Peanut! ^^^^ She is sweet, annoying, adorable, silly, relentless, cuddly, antisocial, sleepy, hyper, day sleeper, night owl, hair kneader, feet attacker, laser lover, balcony lurker, getting chubby, grey ball of fur.

But we love her! Scott tries to win her affection with food. I still think she’s upset for ditching her for 3 weeks during the wedding fiasco. (I ditched her with a friend but she would have froze in Utah!) She doesn’t meet me at the front door when I come home from work as often. Sad day…

By the way, from experience, do not try to walk your cat. It doesn’t work. [She] will most likely just lay there, not really knowing what the heck is going on. And you end up trying to drag or carry the kitty and everyone looks at you funny. Also, you probably shouldn’t take your cat out to join in on a lunch date. But seeing the cat still will most likely be amusing nonetheless. And you will probably …

P is for Painting!

I love the arts! Mostly creating it. Over the last year I have gotten into painting and I've been painting for a little over a year now. I still have a lotttt to learn.

Things have been super crazy though, after getting married and the holidays, but this past weekend I was finally able to make it back to Sundust Gallery! They moved locations from Mesa to Gilbert which is great for them! But they are further away from me...so it's hard to make it in especially since they close at 6. Anyway, I love places like this! They have a gallery and an open studio where you can come in and paint whenever the gallery is open. You purchas a canvas from them and then they provide the paint and other supplies. All you have to do it show up! And on top of that, the staff is great! I just wish I lived closer! 
Here is the painting I'm currently working on (I think it's on a 11x14) and the progression pictures I've taken in between sessions...And if you check back a little later, I&#…

Crayon Art

Image
So while I was on pinterest the other day, I was looking through my lovely girlfriends pinboards. AND stealing all of her pins. (I'm not very good at exploring the world of Pinterest.) But anyway. I came across this blog! And I decided to be a little crafty! See here!

I don't really color too often anymore so I don't think it would really be that bad to destroy some of my crayons Besides, this looked like fun! My hubby and I went to walmart to get some canvas and then I also grabbed this cute little wooden frame. The canvases were 11x16? So glad I grabbed the wooden frame... It's much smaller. 
Monday night after we got the supplies, I found my crayons and took the paper off every shade of green I had in my box. Only 5 colors though. I couldn't find my little tee light candles so I just found a normal one. Bad idea. Tee lights work the best because you don't want to dip the crayon directly into the flame or else it will blacken the crayon and you won't get t…

Pineapple Salsa

Image
First of all, who doesn't like salsa, am I right? I mean like come on. There are a bazillion different kinds of combinations you could throw together to make a scrumptious salsa exactly to your liking! Sounds great, right?

Me, being from Tucson and all, I should love Mexican food, right? Wrong. I know, I know, it is pretty hard to believe. And all the places which I have lived have been full of Mexican food whether it's authentic, americanized or tex-mex. Don't get me wrong, I am trying to expand my food liking horizon! I also am a wee bit of a heath nut and a bit particular about...mmm… everything. (bless my husband's heart) But anyway...I don't like beans (at least the mushy ones), or too much cheese, or greasy grossness, or tomatoes. Those are the worst. I wont even touch them let alone cut them up and put it in a salsa.

Which brings me to pineapple salsa! A bazillion times better than tomato salsa! And the best thing about this is that it is both sweet AND spi…
