Well, my point is that my Martha Mag came today and this add was in it (click on it to make it big and see how good it looks). I thought Ned and Chuck's Perfect Pear Pie looked yummy and I wanted to share it with you. I just might need to make it for the season finale. I wish I could make it this Wednesday but I'll be too busy having makeover night with my girls (YW). My wish for the day is that we would all have the time to sit down with a yummy piece of goodness (and have it magically be calorie free) and watch a favorite TV show. We deserve it girls. Go make it happen.
p.s. Sorry this post is kind of blah. I'm still not feeling 100%, so my shows are making me really happy.

We went out on a "date for two" for smoothies at Smoothie King. The strawberry lemonade smoothie is delish. Dan says, "The angle food smoothie ain't bad either." We had a few minutes to kill before our event so we drank our smoothies in front of the administration building on campus. How quaint.
I was especially excited about this evening because it felt like fall and I was able to dress up more to my liking. I figured it was a good night to bust out the shirt that I wore on my and Dan's first date in Seattle. I know it's a bit old but Dan said it needed to stay stashed in my wardrobe and I'm glad he did.
She read a series of poems from her collection Kyrie, which is a series of sonnets about the influenza epidemic of 1918.
Afterward, we went to a reception for her at the condo of one of Dan's professors. I was thrilled because I've been wanting an invite into one of the units. She lives in a converted elementary school. The units even have old chalkboards in them. If we were going to stay in Mississippi, I would want to live there for sure. The Pastry Garden catered the party so that was a nice little surprize. I didn't help with it but i recognized some of the food. Well, dear friends, we are off to end our night with a viewing of Pushing Daisies.
Below are my entries...
I would take all of the junk off of it and spray paint it turquoise blue. I would then spray paint a little twig silver and perch it in the little birdhouse. Then get a little birdie (you can find really cute vintage one's online) and put him in his new home. It would look really cute on a fireplace mantle in the spring. I love it. hugs,Kat
I seriously want to throw this party. A slumber party is in the works and it may become the theme for that but really, I think this needs to be done up right. I wish I was closer to my friends when they have their babies or that my sisters were getting married so I could throw one rockin' shower.
The party needs Hummingbird cake for sure.
I am so excited.

My cupcake cozies from Darlybird came today. I'm in love with them. I can't wait to make some treats. I was especially excited to hear that she is best friends with a very pretty young lady that I grew up with in Monrovia. It's a small small world.
I'm sorry I wasn't at the gym to work out with you this morning, Melissa and Bonnie.
I'm sorry I didn't make it to work today, Jim and Sonya.

We saw it last Christmas and I didn't enjoy it the way I wanted to. I was too irritated with my surroundings. I'm no fun in a crowded movie theatre when I have no elbow room and I'm sitting in the front row of the theatre. So, we finally got to watch it again. I loved it the second time. Thankfully I knew when to look away (the horse scene makes me too too sad).
We met up with friends for breakfast so they were able to meet Howdy. Lucky kids. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with him but I had to have him. Here are some other things I HAD to have.
Now I have some "Voting" socks. A girl must mean business if she wears these socks to the voting booth.

On a happier note, Dan and I went on a date tonight. Dan did a reading at school. He was amazing, like he always is. Afterwards, we went shopping. I was hoping to find a treasure at the local mall but I left empty handed. Boo hoo. I'd rather shop online, anyway. (I told them!) Then we went out for Dan's birthday dinner. You see, Mommy and CJ gave Dan a gift certificate to a well known eatery. We decided to wait until we had a special reason to celebrate (since Dan's birthday isn't reason enough, and we were too busy with school starting back, etc.). And since Dan's reading went well we decided tonight was the night. So, we are well fed and making the most of our Friday night.
Dan had a very HAPPY birthday dinner.
Thanks Mommy and CJ.
Annie tweaked this wish a bit. I asked her to wish that I would get to move back to the West Coast and that Dan would find a good job.
Annie's version of my wish is "Kat wishes for Dan to get a job in LA."
I thought that was funny and very typical Annie.
Peaches, you never know, right?
I will say this, I promise to never sleep on an inner tube when I'm with you.
p.s. Annie, thank you so much for doing this, it really made me happy.

Dan ordered a copy of The Little Brute Family and it came in the mail today. Happy mail day for sure. He read it to me and it was the perfect pick me up book to a day like today. I highly recommend it to anyone who is in a grump.
Well, my pinkie is at attention so I must be getting happier.
Horray for tea parties and horray for Dan.
Dan is my little Brute who always finds daisies and good feelings.
"Then one day Baby Brute found a little wandering lost good feeling in a field of daisies, and he caught it in his paw and put it in his tiny pocket. And he felt so good that he laughed and said,
