Hello Again...

Perhaps i've been gone too long.
have I been missed? does anyone still follow this blog?

Some things have changed since my last post. I'm now happily married to Spit Fire.(who woulda' thunk!?) I have a son who is two. and I am a fitness center manager.

So lets pick up where we left off!
I've tried some new things I'll be sharing those with you soon.
Dating has turned into Date nights and family walks with my Hubby.
I am super focused on fitness and healthy eating, so I will be sharing some tips, tricks, and inspiration with you.

And my cooking skills have improved immensely! (I know! We never would had seen that coming in a million years!)

Cheers to comebacks!

Cleaning up Smoke damaged homes.

We had a little kitchen smoke accident the other night.
My hubby left a full pan of hamburger frying on the stove as we left for a 2 hour Roller Derby Practice. (He thought he had turned it off, but really did not...)

If you've ever seen me cook, you're probably saying this right now: "It was HIM, and NOT YOU who set the house on fire!?!" - I know! Right!?

We came home to our house billowing smoke out of the front door as we opened it.
We proceeded to run through the house and open all windows  after he had picked up the pan and taken it outside. I found and grabbed my cat, Paris, and took her outside with me. Smoke was pouring out all the windows of our house. It smelled horrible. 

Luckily it was not a huge fire. But there was nothing left of the pan by the time we found it.

Once the house was secure enough, We set off to the local store for basic quick fix cleaning supplies:
Febreez and air fresheners.

Then sprayed down our house, and started a load of washing clothes to wear the next day.

Today I've been searching cleaning tips for smoke damaged homes.
I found this great link which I want to share, because, you never know when it might happen to you.

Home Guides: How do I Remove Fire Smoke Smell From Apartment?

Basic how to:
- air out the house with a fan pushing air into the house to help drive out smoke.
- wash clothing, curtains, linens, anything you can put in the washer.
- wash down floors, walls, fixtures, all surfaces.
- some things you may prefer to just replace. but most can be saved with some TLC and lots of Vacuuming, washing, steam cleaning.

And don't freak out too much. It could have been a lot worse. If you were not in the house, and no one was hurt, then you are doing pretty good. These things happen.

King Ranch Chicken

We all know how bad I am at cooking.

Well, I gave it another try last night.
I found this recipe for King Ranch Chicken on Pinterest.

and then I  gave Hubby a big plate full. and he ate it quietly.
...then he got up and went back for seconds!
...and then went back for Thirds!
 I Did it! I made something edible AND yummy! Yay Me!

Here is my masterpiece
not burnt, not too spicy, not too soupy; just right.

Changes, Careers, New Adventures

I did it. I found a job which showcases all of my amazing skill sets.  I blew the interviews out of the water and wowed the manegment team. I'm  so proud to say I finally did it. I got a job that meets my standards and my worth.

My new position will consist of manageing a team of super people. Setting goals and advancing my already awesome skill set.

The only thing I am worried about is the very lax dress code. I'm stepping from a sales position of semi-casual work wear, into management of a 'nerd-world' where everyone is proven to be worthy and they essentially let them "just be comfortable". Many of them wear jeans and hoodies to work....
This thought is attrocious to me. I will inevitably be the odd one out with my cute skirts and dresses. I don't wear pants often. I actually hate the way I look in pants. So you can usually find me in a cute skirt of dress with all the accessories that go with it.  and I will never sacrifice style for comfort. I dont believe anyone has to.

this will be an adventure...
