It was a hit.

Published by under entertainment

I went to a ladies dinner on Saturday evening. We were asked to bring something that had the word Salad in it. It didn’t necessarily have to be a salad. Some brought Chicken Salad casserole, chicken salad sandwiches, other salads and desserts. I took pretzel salad. I think they liked it because there wasn’t any left!
Pretzel Salad

2 cups pretzels (crushed)
3/4 cup melted butter
3 Tbsp. sugar

Mix together and pack in bottom of a 9″ X 13″ baking dish. Bake in a preheated 400° F oven for 10 minutes. Refrigerate.

8 oz cream cheese (softened)
9 oz. Cool Whip
1 cup sugar

Mix together and spread over pretzel layer.

1 large strawberry jello
2 cups boiling water
2 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen strawberries (thawed)

Mix and pour over the cream cheese layer. Chill. Yield: 12-15 servings.

Cleaning

Published by under a bit of everything

I am finally able to get around and do the little things that have come undone while I had to stay on the couch. I arranged my sock drawer so that all the colors are together. Obsessive? Naw. You have to be able to match up socks in the morning when you are only half awake. Otherwise you are at work with different colors on. Not that I would ever do that! LOL

Half.com

Published by under business

I write ads and while doing that, I ran across BuzzMarketing. I read about who BuzzMarketing was promoting. Mark Hughes. I had no idea but this guy is unbelievable! He is a power promoter. He talked a town called Halfway, Oregon into changing their name to Half.com, Oregon. The publicity caused such a ruckuss that his business at Half.com exploded. It was so successful that Ebay got wind of the operation and bought it for over 3 billion dollars! Kudos Mark Hughes!

Snow dog love

Published by under family

My silly doggie Brody loves the snow. He is a little Shitzu and his hair is so long that he looks like a little miniature sheep dog. He runs out in the snow a burys his face in it so the snow is flying when he shakes his head. When he comes inside he has snow packed into his fur. I have to take the blow dryer to melt the snow so it doesn’t freeze his sking. He likes that too. He rolls over on his back like ahhhh this is the life. Crazy dog!

Go Colts

Published by under entertainment

I admit to knowing nothing about the game of football but I live in Indiana.  I guess I am a Hoosier. I must root for the Colts! So GO COLTS!  Football means chips, dip, nacho cheese and relaxation.  I can get into those things! Basketball I can really get into.  No need for food to bribe me into watching!  When someone mentions football what does it bring to your mind? Are you rooting for a special team?

Cruise Ship vacation

Published by under entertainment

When we went on a cruise we had to fly from Indianapolis to Miami. That added extra expense to the trip. I was reading in the Indianapolis Star today that many of the cruise lines have added new ports of departure. From Indianapolis we can drive to Baltimore, Philadelphia or Mobile, Ala. for a day and then leave on the ship. Those drives are doable and are in fact nice scenic trips. I really didn’t think too much of flying to Miami and then being basically stuck on the cruise ship. This way by the time we drive that distance we will be ready to sit back and enjoy laying around and eating and laying around and eating. LOL

I checked something on my blog and it said “Oh my goodness girl! You have 55 errors in this thing!” Of course then I’m thinking oh no. What have I done now. Well two of my more knowledgeable friends assured me that everything is ok. ahhhhh Thanks Suni and Julie.

New Puppies

Published by under friends

I tell ya I think Dachshund puppies must be popping out everywhere. I can’t tell you how many people on the boards I go to have gotten them just in the past few weeks. I think they are adorable. I can’t have one though. My Brody and Elsie would be upset if I brought another dog into this house. It is crazy enough with just these two.
