That Was A Fail

Hello and happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. Have a great day πŸ™‚


I woke up to Alex’s alarm and felt so well rested. No idea why but I’ll take it. I got ready for work and went to get breakfast. Remember how I made a big thing of baked oatmeal on Sunday and left it on the counter for days? Apparently I was supposed to refrigerate it to keep it as leftovers. I discovered this because it tasted funky after I heated it up. Oops! Lesson learned. I quickly scrambled an egg and had it with a piece of pumpkin bread for breakfast.


I started my newest book while eating my lunch at work. Sandra Brown is one of my go to thriller writers. Whenever I want a book I know I’ll enjoy I will grab one by her or Harlan Coben.Β “Play Dirty”Β is about Griff Burkett who spent the last five years in prison. He has no job outlooks but before his release, gets an invitation from the owner and CEO of an airline, Foster Speakman. Foster and his wife, Laura, want Griff to impregnate Laura in the natural way and not go the typical donor route. I’m so excited to see where this story goes because I was taken about when I found out about the job offer.


After work, I ran an errand before heading home. I tend to leave all of the breakfast dishes for the afternoon so I cleaned those up. Alex had an early night last night so instead of getting home after 7:30, he was home before 5:30! It’s the little things like that which make my day πŸ™‚ He poured us some wine and we hung out on our porch since it wasn’t hot or humid finally.


With Alex working in the city and having a few hours of commuting every day, I’ve picked up some more of the household chores. It totally comes with the category of living with your boyfriend so I don’t mind. Instead of having me heat up leftovers, he decided to let me have a break from cooking and ordered us takeout as a treat. I thought it was super sweet of him and I definitely enjoyed the break. I had a cheesesteak and some cheese fries.

After dinner, we started an episode of “Burn Notice” but turned it off about halfway through so we could just hang out and chat. We headed to bed pretty early (9:15 lol) but we were both so tired. I think our 5:15 wakeup is catching up to us and our bodies are finally tired earlier.

Question of the day: Do you have any kitchen fails you can tell me about so I feel better about mine?

  1. Hmm…I tried to make a stuffed shell recipe I found on Pinterest and it was a failure. It tasted okay but I just couldn’t get the chicken and broccoli into the shells. It was edible, though. At least you are cooking!


    1. I love stuffed shells! They really intimidate me because I feel like there are so many ways for it to go wrong. At least it was edible! That’s true! I do love cooking so I guess everything can’t always work out perfectly.

      Have a great day, Jessica πŸ™‚


    1. Me too! It was so nice to see him for a few extra hours πŸ™‚
      Coffee cake is delicious and it probably made your house smell delicious. If seems like it could’ve used more flour like you said.
      Have a wonderful day, Emily!

    1. Yes it is! I love that he loves his new job and that’s it is more in line with what he wants to do with his future but to go from him being home around 4 to 7:30 or later is rough.

      Have a great Thursday, Dawn πŸ™‚


  2. I don’t think your kitchen fail is that bad! Once I baked cookies for forgot to add the flour (apparently I though nothing of it when the batter made way less cookies than usual…). The “cookies” ended up melting all over the cookie sheet and left a huge mess in the bottom of the oven!


    1. No you’re right, it’s not that bad more so just annoying. Oh my gosh that’s so funny! You were probably just on autopilot and didn’t think anything of it!
      That reminds me of something my mom did once, she made a pitcher of Kool-Aid when my siblings and I were younger and forgot to put sugar in it.

      I hope you have a great day, Erinn πŸ™‚


  3. Yay for Alex getting home early! Isn’t it the best to just have even a little extra time with your man? I always enjoy that! Also, way to go on doing more of the household stuff. I bet Alex really appreciates that!!


    1. It was amazing! I think our apartment would be a mess until Saturday if I didn’t do extra. I have the time so why not do a little more ya know? We both live there and neither of us like messes.

      Have a great day, Allie πŸ™‚


  4. I filled my whole apartment with smoke yesterday because I accidentally put my spaghetti squash in open-side up, rather than open-side-down like you’re supposed to. Kitchen fails are my hobby lol


    1. That is 100% something I would do! A few weeks ago, I put a bag of takeout in the oven to warm it up a bit (somehow it was cold when we got it home 5 minutes after picking it up?) and all of a sudden I smelled smoke. I set the bag on fire while it was in the oven lol.


  5. I was making tea on the stove the other day while getting ready for church. About halfway through service I told my husband that I never turned the stove off. When left in the middle of church and rushed on to find a smokey house. Yikes!
