This Will Be Our Year

How's 2013 going for you? Here, scootch near me and we'll go through mine so far, okay?

First, I made a cake from this Christmas present.

Then, we welcomed 2013 on the roof with friends, glitter in my mouth and champagne spilling all over my gloves. In a totally unexpected strategic move, we managed to see three or four different fireworks displays from that little corner of Prospect Heights.

After that, I discovered incredible WWII spy thriller Restless and made chicken and dumplings (with homemade chicken stock, naturally). This was my "make do and mend" portion of the year.

And a few days ago, I hit beauty junkie jackpot by making the Sephora VIB list. It's the very small, shiny things, ok?

During a potentially illegal public bathroom selfie sesh, I realized I need a haircut.

This weekend, I made the short and enjoyable journey to Briskettown for breakfast tacos.

My compadre there had about 4 brisket, bacon and brussels sprouts tacos by himself.

Aaand, I've already seen three movies since Christmas. Personal best!

Les Mis: Total sobfest for me. I wept openly during I Dreamed a Dream, but managed not to spill any popcorn.
Jack Reacher: Not the Bourne knockoff I so desperately wanted.
Django Unchained: Solid bloody gold.

And I would be remiss not to partake in a few oysters while they're in season.

Last night, we took the KitchenAid pasta attachment for a spin and watched The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Did you know about this? It's Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds, singing and being sexy. Our local movie theater featured it during a country brunch this weekend, but tickets sold out before we could get there. (Check it out on Netflix Instant.)



2013: keep it up.
