Thankful Thursdays #29: friends with benefits

Posted on

I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving.  Here’s what I am thankful for this week!

Thursday: Free tupperware! (Went to a Tupperware consultant meeting and got a free Forget Me Not onion keeper for attending. It hangs in your fridge so you don’t forget it!  *Note: I did not give in to the dark side and become a Tupperware consultant. hehehe)

Friday: Girl-time! (Co-hosted a Tupperware party with my sister at her shop.)

Saturday: Miniature Golf! (We got to play a round for $1 as part of the River Festival activities. Today was the last day of RiverFest.)

Sunday: Friends with benefits! (No, not thooooose kind of benefits!  I mean the benefits that come with having an artist for a friend that can turn an ink stain on your jeans into a work of art. Booyah!  Thanks Miss Tara!)

Before–plain jane jeans with an ink stain:

After-my razzle dazzled-up jeans:

I love it!

She even did the leg…

and pimped my booty too!

This is the same friend that pimped my hubby’s guitar with a drawing of Medusa and won second place for it in the misc. art division at the state fair:

Does she rock hard, or what?!

Monday: Dollar Tree & flash cards! (I found a pack of Disney princess multiplication flash cards at the Dollar Tree, where everything is $1. These are helping me with my pre-test studying as I forgot some of my multiplication tables and needed a refresher for the math portion of the test.)

Tuesday: Screaming bananas! (You know, the bananas that have been sitting on the counter so long they turn black and start screaming to be used?  Don’t be scared of them–they are perfect for baking!  I made the most delicious all-natural, sugar-free blueberry muffins with them.)

Wednesday: My hubby! (I locked my keys in the car at a gas station and he left work to come and save me.  I’m also thankful he has a job with the flexibility to clock out whenever he wants to and for how long he wants to, as long as he gets in 40 hours by the end of the week.  We were able to have lunch together before he went back.)

About Veronica

I have a kitchen addiction and love to collect & share recipes. My passion is baking but I love to cook as well. The only thing I don't like to do in the kitchen is wash dishes, but my husband generally does them for me in exchange for his dinner.

  4. The artwork on the jeans and guitar is simply gorgeous! Wow!
    And those bananas are a little too black for me to even think about touching. I can just sense the mushiness lurking beneath . . . (I know they’re great for baking, but I have trouble approaching any banana that’s not green).

    • Believe me, I understand. I can’t eat a banana unless it has at least a little green on it, but I have come to recognize how great baked goods with banana are if you use really really overripe ones. Which also keeps me from wasting. Win-win!

    • Thank you, Melissa! It does help me keep from getting too whiney. :) My sister has a gift boutique in Wichita, KS, where she sells her homemade soaps and other arts & crafts and antiques. There is a link to her facebook page up there if you want to check it out, or her website where you can make online orders is here: http://www.dani-creations.com
