I'm pretty sure that the reason I woke up early is because I have worried myself sick about Scoot. No, there's nothing wrong with her except she has fleas. GROSS. The bad thing is that I put Frontline on her monthly and she's never gotten them before. We stayed in a cabin this past weekend in the middle of the woods, so I'm pretty sure that they came from there. Anyway, to make a very long story short, Drewby (what a tolerant soul he is...) and I went to Wal Mart this morning at 5:20 and got flea shampoo so that I could give the dog a bath so she wouldn't itch.
I just reread that and realized how completely insane I sound. Good Grief. BTW: If you guys get bored today, please call me and make sure that my eyes are still open and I'm not napping on my desk. I'm exhausted already.
This is the recipe off of All Recipe's.com but I think that it is pretty similar to mine. They didn't use the pineapple juice with the gello but I changed it because that's the best part!
2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups hot pineapple juice
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen strawberries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Stir together crushed pretzels, melted butter and 3 tablespoons sugar; mix well and press mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until set. Set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Fold in whipped topping. Spread mixture onto cooled crust.
Dissolve gelatin in pineapple juice. Stir in still frozen strawberries and allow to set briefly. When mixture is about the consistency of egg whites, pour and spread over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until set.

I'm not sure if everybody else is as excited about this as I am, but I came to a realization this morning... GREY'S ANATOMY STARTS TONIGHT... Holy Cow. My life will be complete again. I really love summer time, its my favorite time of year but the TV sucks. So I guess if it has to be cold (and rainy...), at least we'll get good TV!
Anyway, I hope you guys are having a great day and I guess I'd better get back to work :)

Paula Deen's "Goulash"
1 tablespoon Paula Deen’s House Seasoning
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 bay leaves
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 (15-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
3 cup water
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large onion, chopped
2 lbs lean ground beef
1 tablespoon Paula Deen’s Seasoned Salt
2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
In a Dutch oven, saute the ground beef over medium-high heat until no pink remains. Break up the meat while sauteing. Spoon off any grease. Add the onions and garlic to the pot and saute until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Add 3 cups water, along with the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, bay leaves, soy sauce, House Seasoning, and seasoned salt. Stir well. Place a lid on the pot and allow this to cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the elbow macaroni, stir well, return the lid to the pot, and simmer for about 30 minutes. Turn off the heat, remove the bay leaves, and allow the mixture to sit about 30 minutes more before serving. Serve with garlic bread and a salad.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 35 minutes
Yield: 6 servings (unless Bobby’s eating, then only 3 servings)

So anyway, I guess I should end this now... Like I said, kind of like a novel. Drew and I are starting this week as happy campers though... His triathlon is done and I might, might just be one step closer to showing horses again!
Y'all have a great week!
BTW: What is up with Kanye West... Why does he suck? Poor Taylor :(

So this could end up being the world's craziest weekend. Drew and I are going to be all over the world between early Saturday morning and Sunday night. I guess we should start at the beginning... Saturday morning at 4:45, Drew and I are leaving for Lebanon TN for his triathlon. Yes, 4:45... His race starts at 7 and will probably last about an hour and a half. That is his goal at least. I am sure that he will do so well, he has definitely worked hard for it.
After that, we will be headed to WKU for the football game! We are so excited for the first game of the year. I never tailgated until Drew and I started dating. He likes to think he introduced me to it. HAHA... Anyway, check out this old school picture of us from our first homecoming together in 2005! Neither of us were Greek, so we both just dressed comfortably (thank goodness) and had a great time! The difference this time is that Drew actually wants to stay and watch the game since we are playing USF. I personally think that we, Drew especially, will be absolutely exhausted but we'll just have to see how that goes.
Sunday is the last day and really all that we have to do is drive west and then ride with my family. We are going to get my new horse trailer! I AM SO EXCITED... SO EXCITED... I guess that would seem a little odd to most but I feel like this is one step closer to showing again. I can't wait! Plus, it's going to be sooooo cute (don't worry, I'll post pictures!)
Oh well, I hope that you all have a great weekend too. Are any of you planning on tailgating anywhere?

One more interesting thing to mention about this weekend is that it is the National Corvette Homecoming in BG... I'm convinced these people are insane. Not to mention that there are now millions (ok, maybe slightly exaggerated) of crazed Corvette owners here in Vette City. Its bizarre, they are from everywhere. I've seen so many from California that it's not even funny. This picture shows a view of the museum from I65 and doesn't really do it justice. It is nuts.
Oh well, I hope that everybody has a great three day weekend! We are headed west in the morning and should be back soon!
