A Wednesday Post That Has Nothing to do With What I Wore

Ugh.  I am so irritated with myself that I couldn't get my act together to take my picture not once in the past week.  I blame the extended days and billion orders.  {Really just the extended days.  That getting home an hour later does ugly, ugly things to my evenings.  Which is when I take pictures.  Because I leave when it is still dark.}  And I wore some super cute things this week.  Even though I had the worst interview ever, I looked pretty hip for it.  New things that I was saving special for the interview.  Big sigh,  and I forgot to take my picture.

We did have this for dinner though and I ate a ridiculous amount of food.  I could. not. stop.  It was so wonderful and yummy.  Kudos to Chris!

steak fajita (with all the appropriate toppings, thankyouverymuch), corn (our first of the season) and spanish rice....with a side of lime.  Six summers ago (omg, 6!) our dear friends Joy and Shawn had family in town (Kimberly and fam) and they grilled corn in the shucks, peeled it back, rubbed it down with lime and ate it.  I am not kidding you, I think I ate ten ears of corn in 30 minutes.  Then I wanted it everyday for a month.  And now, I can't eat my corn any other way.  The girls love it this way too and call it "corn with slime."

While I was mildly excited about the corn, Q was really, really excited about the corn.

It kind of looks like a turkey leg, doesn't it???

And here's another one.  He was yelling, "CORN!!!!" when I captured the moment.

I am still feeling pretty good about shop things, shipping wise.  I posted a message in my shop announcements that items will be shipped within 7 to 10 days of payment, and so far so good.  I have everything that's paid for from last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, shipped!  Yay!  The problem is (yes, the extended days, but you know that already) is that I have a billion ideas for new things swirling around in my head and haven't had time to put the thoughts into reality.  Cross your fingers for this weekend.  In the meantime, here are a few little treats that will be in the shop (along with some others) later this evening.  :)

Next time I eat corn, I will hold it high and yell "CORN!!!!!!" I think that is bound to make it taste even better. You know, like eating anything with your fingers does.

Try your grilled corn with mayo (you won't taste it once it's melted), Parmesan cheese and cayenne pepper, that's the only way Andy will eat corn on the cob.
