my girl

You are beautiful and perfect in every way...i love you

Why do birds suddenly appear Every time you are near? Just like me, they long to be Close to you...
Why do stars fall down from the sky Every time you walk by? Just like me, they long to be Close to you...
On the day that you were born The angels got together And decided to create a dream come true So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold And starlight in your eyes of blue....
(Carpenters, close to you)

Happy Valentines Day & Anniversary... Steven

When you love someone - you'll do anything you'll do all the crazy things that you can't explain you'll shoot the moon - put out the sun
when you love someone
you'll deny the truth - believe a lie there'll be times that you'll believe you can really fly but your lonely nights - have just begun when you love someone

when you love someone - you'll feel it deep inside and nothing else can ever change your mind when you want someone - when you need someone when you need someone...

when you love someone - you'll sacrifice you'd give it everything you got and you won't think twice you'd risk it all - no matter what may come when you love someone you'll shoot the moon - put out the sun when you love someone
I love you Steven Paul

Zucchini brownies

These are probably the best brownies i have ever ate! I got the recipe from my co-worker Lisa, she brought in some recipe books and i copied this one:

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups shredded zucchini
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in yogurt and vanilla. Combine the flour, coca, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Fold in zucchini. Pour into a greased 13x9x2 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 35 - 40 minutes or until a a tootpick insered near the center comes out clean.
Frosting: combine the choclate chips and peanut butter in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Spread the frosting over the warn brownies. Yield: 1 1/2 dozen.

Record bowls....

i just checked these bowls out on: search_query=record+bowls&search_type=handmade . They were so easy to make and man, could I make some cash!

Don't hate me.....cause i went thrifting!
