8th Year Anniversary Meal

Hi guys,

Well, just to get you up to speed....Richard and I's anniversary was on the 3rd. We had plans to celebrate the next day. I had cooked dinner that consisted of chicken parm, baked ziti and the potato salad. Unfortunately, the day didn't go as planned as I spent the whole day cooking. Since I was a novice, I chose to finish making the meal instead of making an empty promise. 

Suffice it to say, he was appreciative but because I spent the whole day preparing the meal, it took away the time that we wanted to spend with each other. Around 10ish we had dinner. Afterwards we were greeted by guests. I wasn't aware that he had invited them over during the course of the day. An argument ensued and I stormed off! 

The anniversary was ruined! I was made at him and at myself (okay maybe a little at myself). He told me that  he would have been content with just the two of us and watching movies rather than me going through all the effort, stressing myself out, and wearing a dress that I wasn't comfortable in and finally almost breaking my ankle during the transport of the food.
My baked ziti.
Chicken Parmesan.
Variation of my Potato Salad.

Overall, I think I did an awesome job (for someone who was starting right out of the cooking gate). 

I think next time I will be better prepared for such occasions. 

Do you guys have any suggestions on how I can improve my timing?

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
