Everybody, yeah

Rock your body, yeah
Everybody, yeah
Rock your body right
Backstreet's back, alright

singing from the heart, hands in the air, screaming at the top of your lungs, [plug your ears too loud]...type of concert.

no surprises, yet surprised

The reviews are in folks:
Lady Gaga has been on constant repeat for three days now and I am still in love.
it is:
18 new loving songs of greatness!

Favorite [so far]

[total kid in the a candy shop feeling]

Lady gaga left me no surprises but shopping at family fair this week left me surprised.
So in typical Kari grocery shopping fashion I am in a rush and I never think I need anything, so I never grab a cart and in typical Kari fashion I always need way more than i thought and that always results in me needing that cart that I didn't grab.
Ok so the base is set, shuffling around family fair with no cart.
pop is on a great deal, must get two 12 packs
pick up spinach
well also two cards
then what I went for: coconut, Crisco, and coconut extract
all that along with my clutch wallet, keys and phone.
results: arm about ready to fall off, every line is long or filled, spinach falls out of my figures. Just as I am kicking the spinach bag to the nearest check out lane and trying to set the pop down, this nice young chap that works at family fair comes to the rescue. Picks up my pop and spinach and takes me to a special lane. all I can do is apologize for not getting a cart and thank him over and over for saving me.
and quickly walk out as i am super embarrassed that i cut in front of all these people! but look nice people do still exist!

BSB tonight…kicking it old school.

workin that oven

round one:
scones [this was number one on my life list in the last month or so, so best I check it off] yes they are the minimal sugar, flour tasting treat. But they are all over blogs. savory and sweet. and so I figured it was due time.
chocolate Chip scones or prince harry bait!
according to my official taste tester [miss verwys]
quote: they are not a fudge brownie but they are good regardless

round two:
triple threat chocolate fudge peanut butter cookies
need I really explain more, I feel the title itself should leave your taste buds yearning!

round three:
not yet created but on the the list to do
[this could be interesting since most recipes I find have measurements in grams]

three forks required

fancy fancy
friday night we traveled to Washington DC for a dinner.
Please wear 'black tie' attire: [oo lala to fun dresses]

saturday afternoon just trying to be a helpful citizen:
in the grocery after advance spin [aka torture hour, super gross]
so as I am walking through the family fair with a basket overflowing of mothers days groceries, an older lady comes up to me and ask me if I know where the dollar salad bags are. I politely smile and point to place where I just got spinach from. Her response. wellllll [insert attitude] those are not a dollar, where are the ones that are a dollar?!?! I again polite smile and shrugge and say. Well i do not know!?! Older lady semi gives me more attitude and walks away.
so do I look like I work there!?! i-don't-think-so! just trying to help a person out!

hola mi amigas [or] amigos

[gender neutral blog post]
yo quiero taco bell?
I feel it is valid to yearn for nachos and cheese at eight in the morning on cinco de mayo!

If I think back back back in the day to good old freshman year Spanish class I think I remember a tiny portion of a little bubble conversation... that went something like this:
Aló. de parte de quién?

maybe not

but I do believe that is maybe how I should be answering the phone today?

regardless! today is another holiday which means! celebrate!
happy happy cinco de mayo!

why ruffle feathers...

if it ain't broke, don't fix it


a few more thoughts

one: Last night of BSF [erooo]
two: One thing I recently deemed illegal: Coconut kisses. [have you tried these things! you should [or shouldn't]
three: love great lyrics [heard mercy me Sunday night. very good!]

MercyMe Beautiful
Days will come when you don't have the strength
When all you hear is you're not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart, they'd see too much

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
You're beautiful

Praying that you have the heart to fight
"Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight
For all the lies you've held inside so long
They are nothing in the shadow of the cross

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious
Of all the earth and skies above
You're the one He madly loves enough to die

You're beautiful
You're beautiful in His eyes

You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
You're beautiful

You're beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured, you are sacred, you are his
