Project of the Week

I have been home for several weeks without being called for work. I came up with the idea of making something to show for all of this time being at home! I have wanted a headboard for our bed, or ANYTHING to jazz up the wall that our bed is against. We just don't want to spend our money on furniture right now, so I decided to make one! I drew up the plans in Microsoft Paint (very high-tech, I assure you), and then made a mental shopping list. I even figured out which wood to buy when I went to Home Depot! I didn't want to seem like an ignorant idiot in THAT store! It was a week-long project from start to finish. I designed it last Saturday, and this morning we put it behind our bed. Pretty nifty, eh? I am proud of it, and it still tickles me to walk into our bedroom and see it. I have a handy husband who is very patient and helpful. Waiting for the stain to dry was the most time-consuming thing I have experienced all week! I think the end result is amazing, if I do say so myself. I think I will have a Neiman Marcus cookie in celebration!

Move Over, Mrs. Fields!

I hate to brag, and that is a very un-pilot thing to do. It is rare to find a pilot who is able to undulge in a little bit of self horn-blowing. But when I say I make the best cookies in the world, I mean it! These things are the best! I found the recipe online, and apparently they are the same cookies made in the expensive department store, Neiman Marcus. I don't know if that is all a folk tale, but I DO know these cookies are insane. Lots of butter, sugar, and even some blended oatmeal as one of the ingredients! The recipe is below in my "Site Seeing" section, if you need to test my theory that these cookies could create world peace.
