Adventures in Blogging: Last Thing Thursdays

We have been working hard on Operation: Finish Basement this week, 
getting everything ready in the basement to start digging...
step one is going to be replacing the 3 support pillars down the middle of the house. 
Hopefully I will have pictures to show you soon, but in the mean time here is a quick list for 

The last thing ....
I ate that was fast food was Qdoba. Daniel and I LOVE Qdoba and since it has been so hot outside here lately we have been trying to cook either on the grill...or not at all! Since there is a Qdoba just a few blocks away, we headed over after an long evening of working in the basement to get some dinner. Do you have Qdoba?

I got sad about was my favorite farmer at our local farmer's market has not been there this year. Every Wednesday morning we make a trip to the farmer's market that sets up in a parking lot in our town. I have been getting my produce from the same farmer for several years, and so far this year his booth has not been there. There are plenty of other booths to get my produce from but this particular farmer always had the best prices and the best produce. Sad face! 

I forgot was to put sugar in the blueberry muffins I made yesterday! They were still okay because I had used bananas in the place of the oil, and we put honey on them after discovering my mistake, but they would have been much better with a little sugar. 

I planted was flowers in my new flower box!

Got super excited about was the TV show MasterChef. Have you seen this! It's on FOX and we are totally addicted to it. Regular people who love to cook compete against each other for the title of Master Chef. They have different challenges (like feeding 200 marines and cooking "mystery box" meals). My favorite part of this season is one of the chefs competing is blind. Her name is Christine and SHE IS AMAZING and totally inspiring! Some of the dishes these people think of are so creative - I can hardly wait until next Monday night. 

I couldn't decide was how to get my hair cut! I have a few ideas and am taking a little survey here on the blog. Check out this post here and help me decide! (Thanks!) 

Happy Thursday!


  1. We love Master Chef too! Started watching it on vacation & now we're hooked! Love Christine, she is fearless! We are totally rooting for her too! Oh and I like Monti too because she's so quirky.

  2. I watched the first few episodes of Masterchef and loved it! Is Christine still on??? I'm out of town this week and haven't watched! Cute blog!

  3. Hi there! Stopping over from Last Things linkup! I love your window boxes! I was just saying to my husband that I want to put some in. We live in a little rancher and I think it would really spruce the outside up a bit. Happy Friday!!!

  4. I can't tell you how many times I forgot sugar in something! That's the worst!!! Thanks for linking up!
