{Shannon & Santa Fe}

I feel the need to start this by saying I usually don't get so freaked out/excited over a TV show... but MAN!!!!!! did you see The Bachelor last night? Holy Crap. {DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA}

I was ready at like 7:40 p.m. for it to start; Zack was out in the garage. He came in just a bit after 8 and caught a glimpse... and he was hooked. Soooo, we watched the rest of it together. Me and my garage fixer-upper Man :)

I really do hope The Bachelor is on next Monday night, because if they skip a week I don't know what I'm going to do. I need to know more about this DeAnna coming back into Jason's life, AT THE HOUSE!!! And I need to know which girl gets crazy obsessed, which is pretty obvious if I may say so myself because she {coughSHANNONcough} got all crazy stalker-like last night {and she knew she was getting that way}.

Just watch this for yourself:
Remember to turn the music off at the bottom of my blog.
{And remember to watch Jason's expressions. Eeek.}

I'm hoping to set up my sewing machine and/or room tonight. That would be pretty wonderful. I know I've been talking a lot about sewing lately but haven't actually done it yet. It's mainly because things have been very busy with us lately. Traveling and holidays. I also want to set up my sewing room once I have everything together... I'm a "do it once and do it right" kind of girl. So I'm just waiting for the right time. And the right lighting to I can photograph some new things ;o)

I made a new dish for dinner last night.

Santa Fe Chicken Salad
  • lemon pepper grilled chicken, cooked then diced
  • home-made ranch dressing
  • mango peach salsa
  • southwestern corn
  • black beans, drained and rinsed
  • lettuce
  1. Pound the chicken breasts to make them a little thinner, seasoned with lemon pepper and grill on the George Foreman for about 12 minutes or until cooked through.
  2. Wash and dry lettuce, tear into small pieces.
  3. Arrange lettuce on large dinner place.
  4. Add corn, black beans, and chicken.
  5. Drizzle ranch dressing over all, top with a big scoop of salsa.

It was really, really, good. Right Zack??? :)

I only used one chicken breast, since it was so large, but I think next time I'll use two. Zack loves chicken grilled on the George Foreman... He loves the George Foreman in general...

I watched the Bachelor too! It is pretty crazy. I haven't watched it in like 4 years, and I forgot how DRAMATIC it can be. :) Ted was definitely disgusted...I tried to get him hooked...didn't quite work ;)
