Giveaway, Weekend Wrap-Up, Chocolate Martini Recipe all in ONE!

July 13, 2009 at 7:57 pm (Daily Ramblings, Dinner at My House, GIVEAWAYS!, Thought of the Day)

EDITED TO ADD: THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!!!! I’m using random line picker website thinger so it is fair and I will announce the winner tomorrow morning!! Thanks for playing and stay tuned because I like this giveaway thing there will be plenty more in the future!

We shall start with the weekend wrap-up:

Friday: Usual work day, a little slow but I got to cruise some of my favorite blogs! Traffic was the worst part of my day because when I got home M. and I went out to dinner and ran to the mall so he could get his phone fixed and I could pick up some stuff for our bathroom (new shower curtain, bath mat, towels). We got back home and cuddled ;)!

Saturday: Because we ran most of our errands on Friday night we got to just chill and watch some television and then M. wanted to help out his boss and take in the junk truck to a dumping facility, so I got to ride in the “death trap” truck! FUN STUFF EGH?! I know you’re all jealous! We got back and M. asked if he could help our neighbor/friend with his transmission that blew, I said yes because I have my third Jen Lancaster book and well my afternoon was pretty set! After M. was done with that we went out to dinner with all of our friends, we haven’t gotten together with these friends in FOREVER and because J. might have to go back to Iraq we all decided to have a good time! We started at Cheeseburger in Paradise where I discovered the Chocolate Martini (recipe to follow) and then we headed to this hole in the wall bar that is behind the Police station where one of friends works. Cheap drinks and darts (who could ask for more right?) Well, me being OCD, I had to SECURE M. and I a ride home before I actually enjoyed my drinks! Once the ride was secured I drank more and got a little tipsy, not too tipsy where when asked to makout with another girl in our group I had the stable mind to say “NOOOO I’m not that drunk!” M. took me home threw a bottle of water at me and we went to bed. One side note, I am very CHATTY when I’m drunk, if you ever want to know what I think about something just get me a drink!! 🙂

Sunday: Water damage in half our kitchen, cabinets torn down, moldy shit had to be cleaned, stress ensued. M. and I then decided to release some stress and went to a car show in the Camaro! We had a great time and went out for pizza and came home to clean up the house and relax!

The Chocolate Martini Recipe:

Ingredients: martini
4 oz. chocolate liqueur
2 oz. vanilla vodka
Splash of Half and Half
Chocolate syrup

Mix chocolate liqueur and vanilla vodka. Add a splash of Half and Half and shake over ice. Line a martini glass with chocolate syrup. Add mixture.
