Hello and happy Friday, all! This week has been crazy for me. I’m terribly sorry for not keeping up with all the posts that have been going up from all my fellow bloggers out there. I feel like the Queen of Slime, the Queen of Filth, the Queen of Putrescence. Boo. Boo. Rubbish. Filth. Slime. Muck. Boo. Boo. Boo.*
*Beware, this post is funny and full of quotes (even though Game of Thrones doesn’t have anything to do with The Princess Bride).
Hey guys, sorry this post is coming late in the day – I’ve been so busy today! Eeek! I’ve been busy in general lately and haven’t been keeping up with all of the other lovely blogs out there either. So sorry about that. I’m going to make more of an effort to keep up with it. If I’ve missed one of your recent posts, it’s not intentional, I promise! Please post a link to it in the comments if you want me to read it and I will definitely do so. I’ll also do my best to go back and read them without your prompting.
For tonight’s recommendation I have a movie that stars my all-time favourite movie star crush: the incredibly handsome and ever charming, Kevin Costner. Now that you all know about my undying love for Kevin, I have to admit that I might be a bit biased when it comes to his movies. There are a lot of movies he did that received pretty terrible critical reviews and I still LOVED them. Namely, Waterworld, which has a whopping 42% on Rotten Tomatoes and The Postman which has an incredibly underwhelming 9%. I really liked these movies. Anyone else out there with me on this? I should have added them to my Guilty Pleasures list that I did with David over at That Moment In but I really don’t feel all that guilty about it. I digress. Mr. Brook didn’t receive the best reviews but it’s still a good movie and certainly worth a watch tonight. Let me tell you why.
There are a couple items that I consistently get in my weekly fruit and veggie basket. One of them is zucchini. As someone who didn’t eat very much zucchini prior to these baskets coming, it was becoming a bit of a struggle to continuously find new ways to integrate them into recipes. You can only have so many Zucchini Boats. Last week I received two more. What in the world was I going to do with them? That’s when I realized – when all else fails, batter em’ and fry em’.
Happy Monday, all! Remember when I made over my dinning room set? Yeah, that was a LONG time ago. I actually finished the upholstery not long thereafter but I never got around to editing the video and then I kind of forgot about it. Well, here it is in all it’s glory. This was a lot simpler than I thought it would be so if you have a similar project on the go, don’t be afraid to jump right in.
For those of you who would like to see the process, here are the previous steps in this project:
I know I say in the video that I will give a price breakdown for all the aspects of this makeover and I will, I’m just going to finish posting the last two upholstery videos after this one and then I will do a recap post with all that info.
Have a lovely start to your week!
