What's going on party people? I hope everyone is fantastic. I sure am. Always!
I'm in the middle of planning our town's very first beard and mustache competition. It'll be a fundraiser for my faire of course and I'm pretty stoked about it. I'm studying how to judge and all the rules and technical stuff. I'm wondering into a whole new realm of event planning and I can't wait to get it started!
Speaking of faire, I've been getting some pretty fantastic entertainment lined up for the 2013 faire. I've got my blacksmith and poetic pirates again, my wondering gypsies on horseback and an awesome fire-spinning group from Memphis, TN called Radiant Spirals. YAY!!
I also started a new blog called "Events In Texarkana" which is a MUCH needed site for what's happening in town and the surrounding areas. It's catching on slowly- I mean, it's only been a few days since I started it but I'm more than sure it'll be a success.
So here's what else I've been up to lately:
I've been on a serious Pinterest recipe kick lately.
Here's some er, what is this? Oh yeah, cilantro lime rice with chicken and avocado sauce, I paired with edemame and toasted flour tortillas.
Salmon sweet potato burgers. I topped this with an avocado sauce and sauteed baby bella mushrooms. I deep fried the patties instead of baking them like the instructions say to do so they came out crispy on the outside and mushy on the inside... so the burgers fell apart and needed to be eaten with a fork and lots of napkins.
My new favorite drink! I've only seen it in Mexican grocery stores but I recently found it at the Dollar Tree. It tastes like thickened lemon-lime Koolaid with bits of tasty stuff in it. Mmm... that's honeslty the best I can do it describe it.
Now that my office/craft room/baby room is clean and set up, I've been making a lot of steampunk jewelry and accessories and revamping my Etsy store. I also opened a Storenvy shop to try to get rid of some books and other little stuff I don't want anymore.
So today me and the husband are off to do our taxes so that we can (hopefully) get our tax return in time to pay for our trip to New York for my sister-in-law's wedding in June. Great, now I have to comb my hair and look presentable. I've really been digging the dreadlocks I've been developing since Easter.
Have a superdeeduper day my lovelies!
