I had the Jazz court all to myself! Well almost...

Marc had the opportunity to play on the Utah Jazz court tonight with his work SOS Staffing and it was tons of fun for the guys. At the end I took the opportunity to take a couple shots for myself, who wouldn't want to shoot on an NBA court into an NBA hoop! Here's the proof!

I was short on this shot so I moved closer and made the shot pictured below.

Test results part one

Well, the results came back yesterday on my blood tests and every thing's in the normal range which is comforting. Now to wait for the heart monitor results which I'll know for sure on the 25th.

Enjoy your day!

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

I got this recipe in an email and I wanted to share it with you! It looks soooo good and I can't wait to eat one tonight!

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world ?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Tuesday's Ramblings

So nothing eventful has happened these past few days, but here are a few fun things that did happen.

Marc and I got a Wii and a Wii fit and love them. I didn't realize how challenging the Wii fit would be until I started doing it and wow, it's great! It's going to be a lot of fun and I love how it tracks your changes. We bought it used and also got Guitar Hero 3, Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz (haven't tried that one yet), and Call of Duty 3 in the whole deal. We bought on the side Mario Kart and the Wii Fit and holy cow we're having fun! The kids have picked up on it like champs!

Still no word on my blood tests and heart so here's to more waiting and such.

Our 6th anniversary is coming up on March 1st and to be honest, I'm looking forward to a fresh start. Our 5th year started out perfect and then it went to pot as the year went on. I'm starting to be grateful for the challenges that came with 2008 but still struggling with loss, anger, hurt and forgiveness. I'm so grateful for all my friends who have pledged their support. I still don't know what to do for the anniversary so who knows if it will be big or small. Too bad it's on a Sunday!

We also rearranged our living room and so far we like it.

Yes I know this post was a little boring but I felt the need to share our news be it great or small.
