Now that I'm thinking of food I do have to back up my domestic goddess sister Sarah Kay. Her Turkey Dinner was just as amazing as she described in her blog-- and I just had the left overs! Gluten free stuffing, Wow. I'm willing to do anything for more! When I grow up I hope to cook like my sista Sarah...ok well maybe its too late for that, but I certainly have time to improve-Hang in there Rob. She makes gluten free living/eating not only bearable but enjoyable! Thanks Sarah!

Rob left for Salt Lake this weekend for Brant's wedding - so naturally I had to keep myself busy shopping at the mall to pass some time & I learned something kinda funny about myself.
I stopped by Macy's to look at curtains (hmm which I never got to) and I wasn't planning on it but I walked by the men's department-- I was knocked over by the strong scent of masculinity.
So then I was willingly seduced into the men's department and then felt the need to browse and was even tempted to buy random ties and shirts that I know Rob would probably roll his eyes at. Why? I absolutely love men's cologne. And while some people may be annoyed at the strong scent of 284579 bottles of cologne I must confess that I think it's the sexiest thing ever! I don't normally love men's shopping-probably because my husband hates shopping for clothes and doesn't really love anything that I pick out for him but last night I didn’t mind browsing in the cologne-saturated Macy’s.
I didn't realize that I was cologne obsessed but now that I think about it--this probably trickles down from my dad who is also cologne obsessed. I swear he had 3-4 bottles of different scents in the medicine cabinet growing up. And I think one of the first gifts I gave Rob was a pimped out cologne set which he still has 4 1/2 years later, I guess he's not as crazy about it as I am. haha, It's amazing how many ah hah! Moments I still have about myself...

Since that very lesson I haven't been able to keep anything in my body! Upcoming diet-I think I'll call it N/V/D, (loose 5 lbs in 2 days!) I've spent so much time in the bathroom that I've actually been thinking about new color schemes and subway tile -it even inspired a Home Depot date! Rob can't wait...
Something that I was preparing for but didn't want to think about....the two year lifespan of my overweight fuzzy friend Maisy was quickly approaching. (Call me crazy but I needed a pet!! ) Tonight Rob & I held our fragile panda hamster as she took her last few gasping breaths. As nurses we've seen several people take their last breath (Rob takes a weekly trip to the morgue) and we were surprised to be a little misty eyed as we watched her go. Funny how you can get attached so easily. I guess when you witness a little baby grow into an adult and an old lady-you come to love all of their little preferences (sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, feta cheese, extra fluff for bedding). It was inevitable. I'm glad I had the chance to spoil her rotten with the finest of hamster things (spacious 3 level cage, every chew toy on the market, pink sparkle hamster ball,finest cotton fluff...)
Although it's been kind of a crappy week here at the Card home, the lesson I taught/learned actually helped me laugh at myself and life a little more...& I'll have to be careful of what lesson I signed myself up for next week...
