Helen's Crazy Mind

Whatever is on my mind at that moment or something deep (LOL) I have been thinking about, it's all fair game with me!

So I started an online course for Graphic Design and I am so excited about it. I have already taken three exams and seem to be doing well. It’s a little hard doing the study on your own time thing, but so far I am ‘ahead’ of the projected path that I was given so that’s good!!

I did just finish my last exam and it was a little harder than the first two but I think that’s because I studied in more than one sitting. I just need to find a schedule for it, lol.

However I am still really really really excited and I will keep you all posted. Now I just need to buy some supplies and life will be okay.

Till next time…………………….

Yeah I know it's been a while since my last blog, but hey that just happens sometimes. The summer is almost over, wow did it fly by! Nothing much new is going on. Rob has been enjoying his time off with Nikki though she will be starting first grade soon! She is so excited.

I am hoping my new position at work will begin soon, it was supposed to start on August 2nd but we are so damn understaffed that it got cancelled, oh well.

Just got home from the Philadelphia Zoo, it was so nice. It's crazy that I have lived in PA now for nine years and that was my first trip to the zoo, lol.

Okay super tired, going to go crash on the couch!

Tomorrow is Easter and Rob and I spent the night putting Nikki's Easter basket together and setting up a scavenger hunt for her to find it! I think this will be fun.

Later we will be going to his Mom's for dinner and seeing his family.

I want to wish you all a Happy Easter!!

Birthday Night

So this weekend Rob is taking me to a dinner at Benihana's and then to see Shutter Island for my birthday! I am so excited.

I know some of you will go 'Helen you are so crazy' when I say, I FEEL OLD!! Wednesday I will be 28 and I don't want to get any older, lol. I don't want to turn 30 or 40. I feel like I still have so much to do that people would be like 'Arn't you a bit old to be doing that?'

So yeah maybe I am crazy but who cares!

Okay on to the bright side of birthdays, I got a new hairdo!! (pictures below) Rob got me earings I wanted (wearing in the picture!) and the next book in the 'Sweep' series, yay new book!!!

So now I am off to get my self all pretty for my hot day, LOL

New Blog!

I have created a second blog for my weight loss adventure, LOL so if anyone is interested please feel free to head over and read it. http://hwweightloss.blogspot.com/

Rob thought I should have just made it part of this blog but I wanted them separate cause this blog is for my craziness!!

So now time for that. I am really into the teeny supernatural books, like Twilight Saga, House of Night series, Sweep series, and my favorite Vampire Acadamy.

This week I finished the 6th House of Night book and I was so pissed off. When I had started to read the series it was going to be a 6 book series so I was like cool. Well turnes out it will be more. Thing is I am not sure I want to read it but I know I will just because I need to know how it ends (if the next one is the end)

So while I wait for the next book to come out and I am left with nothing to read because the Twilight Saga I finished and I am waiting on the next installment on the others, so any suggestions?

Uno Chicago Grill, not just Pizza anymore!!

Rob and I decided to go to 'Uno Chicago Grill' for Valentine's Day. I get e-mails from them all the time showing new stuff so we have wanted to go for a while.

I have to say I was really surprised by how much their menu had changed!

In case you don't know or remember it used to be called 'Pizzeria Uno Chicago Grill' and they basically had pizza and maybe some salad. Rob loved going there cause he loves deep dish pizza which was the specialty of Uno.

Now that the name has changed so has the menu in a really good way. They still have pizza but now they also offer a wonderful flatbread pizza. They also offer steak, chicken, seafood, burgers, sandwiches and much more. The appetizers are also very appealing, ranging from basic wings to potato pizza skins to the yummy (it's what we had) shrimp and lobster fun-doo (however I recommend letting it cool down because we both burned our mouths)

Rob had his usual farmers market deep dish and I had the chef's special thin crust, which just means I get to pick three toppings and I also got to mine with pesto sauce instead of tomato sauce.

My pizza was amazing! I got sausage, chicken and eggplant. It was perfect with the pesto sauce and the sausage was sweet which added a nice flavor to it all.

I had a bite of Rob's also which had spinach, eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions and pesto sauce. I am not a huge fan of onions or cooked tomatoes but it all blended together really nice too!

For dessert we both had mini deserts, which are just smaller portions.  We both got the banana's foster. It was the perfect size and was so yummy.

I definitely think they have upgraded from just a pizza place and I would love to go back and try some of the other items they offer but the best part is it's still a great place to have pizza or even take Nikki too because they have a pizza that the kids get to make themselves!

Yeah I know it's been a while but that is just how I roll, LOL
Last night and today we had a HUGE snow storm here and I LOVE IT!! We got about a foot and a half of snow and it looks so wonderful outside!

Nikki got a 'snowman kit' for Christmas and I think we will get the chance to make use of it tomorrow.
