Tuesday was Brandon's Birthday! It was so much fun. We went to  Texas De Brazil and had the most amazing meal. The salad bar has over 60 items on it and you could definantly fill up on that but then they bring the meat out. Boy!!! It was great, There was lamb, chicken, beef, sausage, and pork. It was amazing! 

We hung out at Barnes and Nobles for a while and then went on home. It was such a great sweet night to enjoy with the hubby!

Life's Operating Manual

I have been really getting into reading lately and I found a great book that made me think about life in another way. The name is "Life's Operating Manual" by Tom Shadyac.

The book has a very unconventional and different opinion on life.  Tom Shadyac is the director of many hilarious films...Bruce Almighty, Ace Ventura, etc. I would assume that his view on life is one with a sense of humor and it is but it is also very serious.

I do not agree with a lot of the things in the book BUT I do very much like how he presented the information. It takes the way the society views life and "The American Dream" then it presents it in a different view point. Many times in the book, he says "Make life the way you want it" or "You don't have to fit in" make your own decisions instead of letting society (life) make them for you. I loved the fear/truth dialogues through the entire book. It really make his point. I don't think the book would have been 1/2 as good if the dialogues weren't in the book. I wouldn't read this book twice but I think it was a 3 star book.

I was given this book by Hay House to give my honest review.

Garlic & Honey Chicken

So excited for dinner tonight!!


  • 4 boneless chicken breasts (~2 lbs)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed, I use Brown Sugar Substitute 62506)
  • 23 cup vinegar
  • 14 cup lemon lime beverage (carbonated)
  • 2 tbsps minced garlic
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce
  • 1 tsp pepper
Mix together in crockpot for 6-8 hours and eat away. I will let you know how it tastes!

Don't get excited! It was not good. I did exactly what it said to do and it was horrible. I guess some people like it but I hated it.
