A Little Treasure

by Courtney on January 8, 2013

Well, let me tell ya. By the time I got home from my parents’ house last night after work, I was lucky I had the patience to even take off my jacket before diving head first into dinner. I was haaaaangry.


Luckily, I not only managed to get the jacket off, but I even changed into my cozies and allowed my goulash the two minutes it needed to heat up in the microwave. Winking smile


I thoroughly enjoyed my big bowl of mom’s goulash and a piece of toast with butter while reading through my latest issue of Rachel Ray magazine. There was actually quite a few recipes I tore out, including one for a Garlic Bread Bowl with Spicy Pizza Dip. Umm, yeah. That has Super Bowl written ALL over it.

As I was sitting at the table eating dinner and reading, I couldn’t help but notice my little sidekick.


He was eagerly waiting next to me with his fetch toy, so I played a few rounds with him, but eventually all he wanted to do was stare at the bottom of the fridge. If Cody stares at a fetch toy near the bottom of the fridge and doesn’t go after it, that only means one thing…


There were others under there that he had his mind on.


Sure enough, he was happy as a clam after that little treasure was presented to him.


Geez, he cracks me up.

As for the rest of the evening? Well, I had it all blocked off for one thing, and one thing only…


That’s right, baby. It’s Bachelor time. And Mr. Sean Lowe has my full attention for the whole season. Winking smile


*The Baby Tooth page was updated this morning! (It does have ultrasound pics, so just a heads up in case they aren’t really your thing).

Question for the Morning:

Where are all my fellow Bachelor fans out there?!? What did you think of the first episode?

How about Robyn who attempted the back flips and totally fell?!? I’m sorry, but that was just funny!

Oh I love the Bachelor – guilty pleasure right here! I didn’t get a chance to watch it last night, but I certainly plan on catching up with it today! Can’t wait for it!

I loved last night’s episode! Question, though…what happened to the drunk girl? I didn’t see her at the rose ceremony? Did I miss something when I stepped out of the room?!


3 Courtney January 8, 2013 at 8:44 am

Oh she was definitely there! No rose for her though haha ;)


4 Kristy @ Kristy's Health Revolution January 8, 2013 at 8:47 am

Haha! My cat does the same thing with these little rubber mice that I bought three Halloweens ago. She LOVES them, and she has 3 left. They always end up under the bookcase in the living room, and she’ll sit there and stare under it until I get a flashlight and dig them out. Silly kitties.

Sean held my complete attention as well—he is so incredibly dreamy! I was super excited Kacie was back from Ben’s season. She was a favorite of mine. IT should be a drama-filled season!

Cody is so stinkin’ cute! My cats love the like milk tabs, too. Unfortunately, one cat likes to chew & eat everything, so we can’t leave them around for her to play with very long. Supervised play only :) And ooooh – your mom’s goulash looks DELISH!

When you said something else under the fridge I thought you meant a mouse! My cat has gone into stare-down mode under appliances before…and usually it’s for something more sinister than his toy haha

I am a big fan of The Bachelor, but I basically just skimmed last night’s episode. The first episode is always too embarrassing and painful to sit through!

12 kim@hungryhealthygirl January 8, 2013 at 9:32 am

Loved the first episode!! I didn’t watch last season, so Sean is new to me and I definitely see what all the fuss is about!

Bachelor is definitely my guilty pleasure but if someone called me up and asked if I wanted to date Sean Lowe….YES PLEASE!

I watched the Bachelor last night and think this is going to be a veryyyy entertaining season. There were some interesting girls on there! I can’t believe the one girl with the 50 Shades of Grey obsession…can we say out of control? My favorite part was when she said “Don’t be mad at me, Mom.” at the end. Hahah!

I watched it! He seems so genuine, and cute :) That was hilarious when she fell! Some of those girls are Craaaaazy!

This might sound sad but I have never been more bummed that we got rid of cable than I am now. Sean was my favorite on Emily’s season and now I have to wait til Tuesday or Wednesday to catch the episodes online.

I told you sad, right? HAHA!

19 Shay M. January 8, 2013 at 11:30 am

That girl who got waaaaaasted was ridiculous! I’m also a little surprised he picked the girl in the wedding dress since she asked for a kiss. That was way awkward!


20 Stellina @ My Yogurt Addiction January 8, 2013 at 11:34 am

LOL about the back flips!!! And the girl who whipped out the tie! Really? I think the girl he gave the first rose to is adorable as well as the bridal consultant. Sean is such a cutie! I love this show even though the concept it kind of silly. It gets me everytime!


21 Lisa January 8, 2013 at 11:50 am

NOTE: Spoiler Alert to Those That Haven’t Watched Yet!

OMG!! I was totally glued to the TV and will probably watch it over again for its highly entertaining value last night. A few comments: 1) Why, oh why, would he keep the girl in the wedding dress??!! 2) Totally laughed at the girl who was trying to do the back flips but also felt kind of sorry for her. I don’t know too many people who can do back flips in a long, clingy gown!; 3) The girl with the 50 Shades of Grey obsession needs some serious help; 4) Was very relieved that the girl with 1 arm received a rose; 5) Can’t wait to see future episodes with Tierra!! From the previews they showed last night, she looks like she is going to be MAJOR trouble!!! 6) I really thought for a minute that Emily was going to be the last surprise girl to come out of the limo! I think that Sean is the best bachelor they have ever had. I will be totally jealous of whoever ends up with that man!


22 Hillary | Nutrition Nut on the Run January 8, 2013 at 12:21 pm

I don’t have cable, so Tuesday will have to be my Bachelor evenings when I catch up online. Sean is a QT ;)


23 Nicole@ January 8, 2013 at 12:29 pm

My parents cat does the exact same thing with the stove. I loved the first episode last night…I couldn’t get over all the crazies on this one!

That goulash looks amazing, I looked around the blog for a recipe but didn’t find one…. Any chance of sharing this one??

I second that. Your moms goulash looks amazing and would love the recipe. Mine never looks like that. :(


26 Courtney January 8, 2013 at 3:00 pm

I honestly don’t think she really has one! It’s basically just ground beef, tomatoes, and noodles haha :)


27 Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl January 8, 2013 at 1:30 pm

I just received my copy of Rachel Ray’s magazine in the mail last night and cannot wait to read it. I, however, am notorious for tearing out recipes, sticking them in a pile, and never making them. I really need to get with it and get that pile organized so that I will start utilizing the recipes!

I am a BIG Bachelor fan. I have watched every season since the beginning. Sean happens to be an all-time favorite of mine, so I am sure that it will be a great season!

Sean seems to be such a great, genuine guy, but what I don’t get is why he agreed to go on the show. He is a Christian guy with morals, and to me dating more than one person at the same time kinda violates Christian morals……just cause it’s on TV doesn’t make it okay (In My Opinion of Course)

I am a new reader, but LOVED your post with your kitty pictures!! I just love when they play with things that are so simple! :)

I am ALSO a Bachelor fan! I thought the first episode wasn’t bad- there are some crazies though! MAN! Like the girl in the wedding dress!! OMG! Also, the girl that did the back flips… oh my! haha It was a fun episode! My friends and I are doing a Bachelor Bracket, like a sports bracket! I AM SO EXCITED!!! :) hehe


32 Courtney January 8, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Welcome!!! :)


33 Mollie @Sprinkles of Life January 14, 2013 at 3:44 pm

That is such a fun idea to do the bracket thing! I may have to steal that in the future ;)


34 Lizzie January 8, 2013 at 8:07 pm

Haha Courtney – it definitely take another cat lady to find the humor in the refrigerator treasures! I laughed out loud :)


35 Avery @ Southern Belle Living Well January 8, 2013 at 9:56 pm

Ohhhh….Sean. I have a friend who knows him, and needless to say, I am JEALOUS. He sends her autographed items all the time…. :( Someone’s gonna make quite a bit on eBay.

I love your little “goulash bowl”! Where do you buy bowls like that?


36 Courtney January 8, 2013 at 10:35 pm

They’re from QVC. The temptations line!


37 Bek @ Crave January 9, 2013 at 12:11 am
