I Spent Over 6 Hours Working On This Post!

I'm so excited to see you! Today is my SITS Day and I was hoping you would be able to stop by. You do know what it means to have my SITS Day, don't you? Paaaaar-tayTime!
Welcome to my LambAround party! Let me start out by introducing myself. I’m Lamb, a newlywed who has been known to place shirts into the washing machine one color and have them come out another. My hubby, Sexy Nerd, never, ever asks me to do his laundry. My blog provides an often humorous peek into my life, with focus on my cooking and decorating attempts. If you'd like to know more, please click here. If you enjoy stories about weddings gone wrong, I promise you won't be disappointed. Our male wedding officiant, Captain Howie, showed up late, wearing a skirt, and tried to make me climb a tree branch over a fishpond while in my wedding gown!

Oh, and there was a bit more to the stuffed animal in the washing machine story than the SITS site told you. Yes, I was worried about my lamb being washed. Guess wha…

Digital Scrapbook Page of the Week

Here I am at my "2nd wedding", which was also to Sexy Nerd (the first was in Hawaii so there were a lot of people who couldn't attend AKA one just wasn't enough for my mom). Sometimes, my best friends, Sarah (L) and Jessica (R) can be a little...odd. I've known both of them since elementary school and our friendship even survived my 8th grade move from San Jose to Albuquerque.

How NOT to Make a Nascar Birthday Cake

(Or any cake, for that matter.)
My cooking motto is "Patience Has No Place In My Kitchen". Allow to me demonstrate exactly what I mean.

Impressed by that race car cake? Me too! But the talented blogger at The Speckled Freckle made it, not me. I knew I didn't have the attention span to make quite as elaborate a cake, but I figured that I could surely pull off a single loop cake for my Nascar fan's birthday. Surely!

First, I got the cars nice and squeaky clean in my ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. Nothing says "Happy Birthday" like sneaking into your husband's office and stealing toy cars from his display case.

My plan was to make the track out of brown frosting (crushed Thin Mints and cocoa powder), use mini marshmallows to line the track, and spread green frosting everywhere else.

I had been cooking all day (you did catch my Meal Plan post, right?) and quickly lost interest in my original plan.

 Yeah, I kind of have a thing for marshmallows (as demonstrat…

Not "Baaad" Sundays #3 (and some exhausted ramblings!)

This has been an exciting week! I have oodles of new followers, courtesy of my fabulous SPICES giveaway (not to mention scrumptious Ramen Noodle recipe). I have been insanely busy. According to my boss, I now work for her full time as an administrative assistant and part time as her website designer and SEO. This is great except that...how exactly should I put this...I have no idea how to be a website designer or SEO! *Sigh!* Without the handy Blogger tools or the Tripod Homepage Housekeeper, web design is kinda baffling. If anyone has any Filezilla/Notepad HTML tips, I'd love to hear them!

Okay, on to the fun! There are 2 things that makes my Linky special:

1. This Linky is open to all posts that you are proud of. Did you recently post about a great decorating project, craft, or recipe? That's wonderful if you did, but just fine if you didn't. I just want you to link to a post or posts you are proud of.
2. Do you ever find yourself trying not to duplicate posts on blog hops…

Divorce Smorce. I Guess We'll Stay Together

If you missed my previous post, titled Does This Mean We're Divorced, click here.

Sexy Nerd found a great deal on a Cobalt Chrome ring. We think it's a perfect replacement for his tungsten carbide wedding ring.

Old Ring (OH NO!)
Fabulous New Ring - oh yes, it's engraved!
Danni + Derek =  Dsquared
(Kitty Deschanel is my pen name.)
Our wedding date, which was also our 4 year anniversary.
A little reminder of the old ring
Our original wording idea was "Don't Drop Me!"
 I hear you saying aaaaw! over there.

YUCK! Sexy Nerd Has a New Hobby

Sexy Nerd has decided that he loves fishing. He gets up insanely early (4am!) on his days off and drives to the lake. He has been concerned about overdoing it. He doesn't want to turn into one of those husbands who is never around because he's always "gone fishing". Honestly, I don't mind one bit. He even caught a fish (which he said was too small, so he took a quick, humane photo of it, then threw it back - my kinda fisherman!)


There is, however, one thing about his new hobby that irks me. Actually, irks may be too light of a word. It grosses me out! I understand that the worms need to stay cool, I really do, but isn't there anywhere else they can go??


Lately, I have paid extra-close attention whenever taking a container of yogurt or butter out of the fridge!

Who's Up For Some Peacock Lovin'?

Sexy Nerd and I spent Friday morning at the Albuquerque Zoo* (you know, the one notorious for dismembered giraffes and break-ins by idiots). There was a small group of women with their young children walking ahead of us when we crossed paths with a few peacocks.

Hey baby. One woman began to explain to her children that the male peacock is the one with the beautiful feathers, which he uses to attract a mate. Normal enough. The other woman, however, jumped in very enthusiastically and said:

"If I were a peacock, I'd just find that guy irresistible! Really, he's even turning me on as a human!" 
At what age do kids begin to realize how embarrassing their parents are?
Lookin' sexy, Mr. Peacock!

*I should point out that, despite the negative links, Sexy Nerd and I love the zoo. We even joined their yearly pass program. You just can't beat the people-watching!
