Getting to know Kristen

Ever since I first learned about the sinking of the Titanic in first grade, I've been intrigued by History. My mom and dad supported my interest by buying me books. Of course it started with Laura Ingalls Wilder and American Girl books. I read everything I could get my hands on in the house. Encyclopedias and random World War II books. I even read some of my dads Kennedy Assassination books which were always disturbing when it got to the autopsy.
In high school and college I loved learning about Greece and Rome and then on to the Feudal systems and Europes always changing borders. I was lucky enough to travel throughout Europe in college. Seeing the exact places I read about in my studies.
Not to make this into a policital blog, I just hope everyone realized that our Country has been forever changed as of yesterday. Because I was such a student of History and loved Government class, I find it hard to believe that we are heading into the right direction. With a split government, loss of the American Citizens voice and not protecting our borders it is comparable to the fall of Rome.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Pics from St. Patty's Day on Sullivans Island 2007

Lucky for me the cafeteria today at work had corned beef and cabbage. True to every Wednesday they had boiled peanuts too.

Lookin' Tasty

As Spring Time rolls in, so does my taste for Berries, Mint, Lemon and Prosecco.
This little recipe from Something's Hiding in There looks wonderfully delightful.

ingredients (serves 4):
1 1/2 pints fresh raspberries & blackberries (about 4 cups)
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
6 large springs of fresh mint (about 2 ounces)
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup vodka
1 bottle prosecco (750 ml)

Reserve some berries for garnish. mash remaining berries, sugar, and herbs in a large bowl. stir in vodka, juice of 1 lemon, and prosecco. pour mixture through a sieve into a pitcher, pressing through; discard solids. pour into 12 oz bottles, add garnish and cork. keep chilled on ice before serving.

Shamrock Badges

Just because my last name is no longer Quinn,
doesn't mean I won't celebrate
St. Patricks Day!
Check out these Shamrock Badges from Design Sponge
Bring on the Corned Beef and Cabbage

Time for Sundresses and Flip Flops

Today I received a generous and thoughtful gratuity from a group that was just in the Spa. I rarely treat myself but I think I'm in need of a new Sundress.
Both of these are from Old Navy-- Yellow Dress is $24.99 and the Purple Dress is just $15.00

Big Busy Day

On the way home today
1) Got my teeth cleaned
2) Did load of laundry
3) Got Scout ready for our lunch date- I need a diaper bag for her
4) Went to Poes for lunch for my friend Amber's Birthday (3 other dogs joined us too)
5) Went to the beach and Scout played HARD in the sand and water with the other dogs.
6) Stopped by Leah's house on Isle of Palms for some water for Skeeter.
7) Got home and we both fell asleep outside for an hour.

Overall.. pretty big day. Now to fold laundry and figure out dinner.

Feelin' Crafty

Do you like my new artwork? I created it from toilet paper rolls. :) If you want to make your own all you need is:
Cardboard Tubes
Craft Glue
Clothes Pins

I Spray Painted the outside of mine BLUE

The dining nook in my kitchen is slowly coming together. I still need to recover the chairs and make some curtains.

Very Clever

I Love it when people turn negatives into positives. Check out Pete Dungey's Pothole Gardens.
