I'm in my 40s, and just hosted my first 'dinner party'. I mean, I've had people over for spaghetti and games, but this was the first time I cooked dinner from scratch and had appetizers and desserts that didn't come from a plastic container.. Everything went great, but I'm exhausted! How do people do this? Is it only for people that don't have a full time job? Or maybe I was too ambitious having it on a week night? It was pretty last minute - a friend came into town, and I had promised I would make her this special dish the next time I saw her, and then we realized that we should invite our mutual friends... And then I realized there wouldn't be enough food, so I added appetizers and desserts and a side dish...

My favorite wines are made by Barefoot and Charles Shaw. Both are under $6 and are awesome. I love serving them to my wine snob in-laws, who always rave about them.

Your food looks like shit. Sloppy and not appetizing looking at all. Quit saying you nailed it and quit posting pictures of your food when it is half-eaten. Put some time and detail in the presentation at least. That's why the stuff you see on Pinterest (which is where you get your ideas from) look so nice and fun, because they put time and effort into it!!

My mom makes me nuts sometimes. My sister and I are super gracious guests. Every time we visit half way though dinner, when we are all discussing something else, she'll say-You girls can clean the kitchen. No kidding. You have only said this on every single visit during every single meal since I moved out 16 YEARS AGO. This summer myself and my kids and my sis & her DH are going back to visit for a week. The first thing she says to my sister is-Well-you can buy some groceries. Not-yay for family fun. Nothing. And the crazy part is we always pitch in-buy food, change sheets after leaving, wash dishes, don't leave messes. We are super gracious guests. I swear, I don't get what goes on in that head of hers. Goodness, I HOPE I am not like that when I grow older.

I need some good book suggestions for vacation later this month. Maybe a new series? Please note: I am a fraidy cat. Nothing too scary or vampires/zombies.

In a situation where DH was totally in the wrong and I really thought he would argue with me and be defensive, he surprised me. He was FB friends with a woman who tried to sleep with him (at her request). I told him it hurt me deeply, even though it was 5 years ago- because WE were married at the time she tried. I said I hated her and it deeply hurt me he would have any open line of communication with her. He said he'd not spoken to her in years and deleted her. Just like that. No argument, nothing. Speaks volumes for how much we have grown as a couple.

Every time my dad gets annoyed or mad at my siblings or me he brings up my mom and all the cheating she did on him. For example, I got mad because he calls me up at 6am (after I worked a long shift) to gripe at me about my brother.I was annoyed and told him to call me back when I was more awake. This led to a lecture later on about how I talked to him angrily (Angry? No. Annoyed. Yes) and how I have to remember the Bible and then he starts talking about what mom did to him and how he didn't react angrily. That's bull. Because he DOES react angrily by bad-mouthing her to his kids and his new wife. He's passive aggressive and it pisses me off. Their divorce was 20 years ago and whenever one of us do anything bad its the long tirade of the martyr. Next time he brings up my mom I am going to tell him that not only did BOTH of them screwed up that marriage but that it has nothing to do with the issue with one of his kids. It's sick when a parent badmouths another one to their kids regardless of the age. The beautiful part is his wife (who is MUCH younger) bashes my mom like she knows her. I crashed that down the moment she brought up my mom. My dad got mad and tried to make me apologize and I refused. I refuse to this day.

The Wine Snob is annoying. I had a guest in my house go on about how his family drinks only the best wine that is so costly. That jerk drank my whole bottle of Moscato ($6) and went on about how good it was and that it had to cost a fortune. What an ass. I got that at the liquor store around the corner.

I like bananas and don't know what the problem is. One of my favorite healthy desserts is baked banana. It has honey, a little bit of brown sugar,vanilla powder and some cinnamon and I just throw it in the oven. It is so good! Sometimes I will have a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side when I want something more.

so, I was laterally moved to that position that they were/weren't going to give me. I started training today. The plus side is, I have dual monitors. The bad side is I have to do both jobs
