The and furious

So far we've had a wonderful weekend. 

Friday night we celebrated birthday's at Benihana's with our Marine friends and family. I have never been to a Benihana's before. We took our DS. Although it's a long wait until our main entree is served he was entertained by our friends and the other chef's at other tables. Okay, you may laugh at what I ordered! For an appetizer I had:
California Rolls! Yummy (I ate them all)

Then for the entree I ordered the Benihana special. A trio: steak, chicken, and large shrimp over vegetables. I ordered the most, beating out all the Marines! For one DS and I were sharing and the other I wanted to try a little of everything. PLUS it made for amazing leftovers for Saturdays lunch!

Oh! I can't forget about my Appletini. Wow, it was scrumptious. 

Saturday: Nothing special, just that I bought a BRAND new sewing machine. Yay for me. I spent all evening after dinner in my sewing/guest bedroom practicing and learning my new machine. It's so easy to use, simple, within my budget, and nothing extravagant. It gets the job done. I will definitely be posting what I make on here for all my fabulous readers to see. I haven't used a sewing machine routinely for about six years.

Sunday: Woke up and decide to use my two year old crock pot that has been sitting around. Never had I used it before. I am making a beef roast for dinner tonight. I hope it turns out well. I have not made a roast before but it smells so good and it's only been cooking for an hour. 

Tonight, I have my first college TEST! Ahhh. It's for my Business Law class. Wish me luck!

In the meantime: For all my mommas, my DS is 22 months old. He seems to be so emotional lately. This morning he woke up happy and then 10 minutes later is was upset. It seems like a roller coaster with him. First he's angry then all of a sudden he's bouncing off the walls all giddy! Is this normal for the age?

Good luck on your exam! I can't wait to see what you sew. I always wish I were better at sewing. I break the needle all the time and get so frustrated. It doesn't help that I can't even sew a straight line.

As far as your 22 month old and his mood swings, I think it's completely normal. Maybe he's frustrated with some developmental milestone? I don't know though. I have a 3 year old and an almost 16 month old and they both have such mood swings. It's as if they are bipolar sometimes with really great moods followed shortly by really mad/sad periods. At least it makes the days interesting, huh?

Good Luck on your Exam. I took business law as a requirement for my first degree. I loathed every moment of it. That's a tough class.

Hi! Have fun with your new sewing machine! I took a years off from sewing and am finally starting to get the hang of it again. Do you have something in mind for your first project?

Hope your exam went well!
