Teriyaki, Digestives, and Frigid Weather

Teriyaki, Digestives, and Frigid Weather

Over the weekend I made teriyaki and some homemade digestives. I was happy with all the results. I was nervous about making teriyaki. How the heck was I going to achieve the flavor Mark and I love about teriyaki without coming short. I’ve used teriyaki sauces before, they were disappointing compared to what you get at all the teriyaki places here. I don’t know why. Maybe they use the same thing, but since it comes in the take-out boxes from…

Crochet Temperature Blanket

Crochet Temperature Blanket

This coming year, 2017, I have decided to crochet a temperature blanket. I missed this bandwagon last year and didn’t hear about a temperature blanket until October this year, but I am beyond excited to start mine and finish mine next year. A lot of people I follow on Instagram in my crocheting/knitting community are still working on a Temperature Blanket, and I was inspired by them. My favourite has been Olivesandpickles and her projects. She has given me some…

Rattlesnake Ledge

Rattlesnake Ledge

  That was where we started. That peak up there on the right is where we are heading to, the taller of the two peaks that is. Known as Rattlesnake Ledge.

He was not looking forward to it, apparently he didn’t have good experiences…

I would have had a green house garden in my dorm room been a stricter vegetarian with stricter regulations for myself, I would have ignored dating…

Proposal.

Proposal.

Oh goodness! Mark proposed Saturday evening. He had his original plan foiled! He was going to take me up into a seaplane around Seattle and propose once we were done or something silly like that!! But LAKE UNION WAS FROZEN OVER. For Saturday and Sunday they said. Oh goodness. He planned to take me out to a VERY lovely dinner to El Gaucho in Bellevue. I chose an amazing swordfish steak and he had filet mignon. Our sides were steamed…

Don’t take your friends for granted.

Don’t take your friends for granted.

End of story. I am living alone right now and it has been hard because I love people. However, I do enjoy not living with Tyler. I have been able to have more friends over now that he is no longer here. I have had movie  nights with my nursing cohort girls, friends over to watch movies, and tonight I am doing a game night with friends. I am a loner and only child…. but I need you guys. You…
