It has been a busy week! I've given blood, been to a football game at THE cowboy's stadium, sent my husband off to denmark to begin his next assignment and done a little shopping, shooting, socializing with my dear 'old' aunt Marilee. (i said that to my mom today and I don't think she was very pleased :)
My dad took me to a shooting range for the first time many years ago. I remember shooting a 'long' gun at the junk yard my grandparents owned when I was younger but didn't shoot a handgun until college. I loved it, and still do, though I don't have the opportunity to go as often as I would like. On Tuesday, we went with my mom, dad, Marilee, and some of my dad's friends...there were 10 of us total and a lot of new(to me) guns to shoot. I shot a revolver for the first time as well as a couple other guns that had serious recoil. I had cramps in my forearms that evening from using muscles that must never get any use!

Throughout the rest of the week, Marilee & I made our 'fancy' grocery store rounds, visited an antique store and a few regular stores. I guess the DFW area doesn't have a lot of exciting sights to see but it does have an endless amount of variety in what you can purchase.
It was a fun week & weekend with Marilee and my sisters! I am glad you could make it down for one last state-side party, Marilee!!
Oh, and before I forget, I should mention that a Pinterest recipe actually came off the board and into the kitchen this week! I love Pinterest and have a slight addiction to it, but it seems like a place to keep a lot of ideas that never actually get done. But not for the Red Velvet Brownies! I thought they were really good though my mom thought they were boring. I would share a picture but the only one I took looks like meat (possibly because I didn't use all the red food coloring that was called for in the recipe-one WHOLE bottle??? that's crazy!)
|Okay, here it is anyway. See? Kinda meat-y.|
