I killed our refrigerator the other day (basically…trying to defrost the freezer I ended up puncturing something that made a huge whhhooOOOOOOSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHH sound – which Google confirmed was the freon and not an easy fix).  It was kind of embarrassing, but I will say that we needed a new one anyway because this was the second time that the freezer had frozen up which kept the refrigerator from being in temp.  That, and I also had to keep a bowl in the back of it to catch water coming from…somewhere…..

Anyway, we had a new one delivered today.  But that’s not actually why I’m blogging.  The real reason is that I wanted to post some pictures of the cookies I made yesterday (with the butter and eggs that were still okay though not 41 degrees) and I feel kind of silly posting stuff on Facebook unless it’s, you know, interesting.

I got a huge bag of vintage cookie cutters at Southern Thrift a few weeks ago.

There were several more, but these were the best.  Using up the butter and eggs was a perfect excuse for making cookies and using these cutters, though (I guess if I had made them on Fat Tuesday, that would have worked just as well).  I decided not to try to ice them at all since the designs are so cute.

(Sorry that it’s so washed out.  I didn’t check the film setting on the app first….)


Aren’t they the cutest cookies EVER??!  Now I just need to find someone to eat them all since I will otherwise (and Matt won’t … as I believe I’ve complained about before).

Almost March??!

So I had to quit blogging for a while because the hard drive on our MacBook crashed (at least that seems to be the problem).  We went for a while without a computer…but do finally have one again (a PC this time, I’ll note).  

But don’t worry, you haven’t missed too much.  So I won’t catch you up and will instead tell you about yesterday when we had a mini Simpsons celebration to watch the 500th episode.  Did you know that only two other primetime, scripted series have aired more than 500 shows?  Those two are Lassie and Gunsmoke.  Just FYI.  

So after I got off work yesterday, we went to the store for sandwich fixin’s and some frogurt.  In case you don’t catch the huge sub sandwich reference, here’s a picture.

And here’s our sandwich.  Much shorter, but then, no sense in letting the mayonnaise turn.


It was delicious, too.  We also had Fresca.


Also from the Simpsons.

Naturally, there were some salty snacks and donuts.  Obviously, to make it complete we would have needed some cans of beer, but I wasn’t in the mood and Matt didn’t want to buy any either, but whatever.  We didn’t just eat, though; we played a few games of Simpsons Scene-It (Matt won all of the games) and watched some of season 3 before the show started at 7:00.  I think the episode last night had something to do with the Simpsons getting banished from Springfield, but I was getting a little tired of watching TV by that time and had started working a crossword. 

So that was that.  Right now I need to go clean up the kitchen and decide what to make for dinner, or else I would blog about the terrariums I made the other day.  They’re AWESOME.  But the kitchen is such a mess….
