My Evening With President Clinton
Earlier this month I was asked by a friend to be her date to her company's holiday party in New York City. She happens to work for the Clinton Foundation...as in the former President, Bill Clinton! Um...let me think about this...YES! Of course I'd go with her to the party!

The party was at a place called eSpace and it was gorgeous with white furniture and an awesome DJ. The drinks were incredible and I couldn't get over the amount of secret service walking around.

After about 20 minutes, the man of the hour walked in himself surrounded by four secret service men, it was former President Bill Clinton! The whole energy of the room changed. Men stood up straighter and fixed their ties and women (including myself) ran to the bathroom to put on more lipstick and check their hair before meeting him.

Then it was our turn to go up to him and have a picture and a quick chat. I told him I saw him speak in Milwaukee when I was in the sixth grade and he mentioned how much he enjoys Milwaukee and the large German population that is still there (which I appreciated, since I'm German). He was extrememly charming and it's true what people say, he makes you feel like you are the only person in the room when he speaks to you.

It was a night I will never forget and this is a photo I'll be sure to show my kids.

How to jack up a car...
Have you ever had a flat tire and no one was around to help you? That was me yesterday. The car was parked in the garage, thanfully, but my husband told me over the phone I needed to jack it up.

What?!?! How do I do that? After going back and forth of how to handle this I decided to YouTube how to fix a flat tire on my iPhone and sure enough this video popped up!

Would Add This To Your Food?
Do you ever run into those moments when you look into your refrigerator and you realize that you have a lot of one item. That was me the other day with carrots. We had two whole bags of baby carrots for some reason.
 
So I decided to chop them up into small pieces and throw them in my spaghetti sauce. And you know what, it actually tasted really good. The crunch was something different for a change!

Now This Is Cute!
Thank goodness for Pintrest. My friend Mandi and I decided to throw our pregnant friend Sarah, a small baby "Drizzle" since we couldn't make her shower.
 
Mandi saw this idea on Pintrest, decorating onesies with stencils. Check out the some of our outfits - aren't they cute?!

Best Dessert EVER!
Do you like bananas? I'm not the biggest fan of banana desserts, but over the weekend I had brunch with my husband Aaron at the Golden Mast and I had to try this - a banana foster.
It's made with butter, brown sugar, bananas, banana liqueor and dark rum over vanilla ice cream. It's amazing!

Eco-friendly Control of Thrips
Poorly developed flowers, stunted plants and silvery streaks on leaves are indications thrips may be feeding on your plants. These tiny insects have file-like mouthparts they use to puncture the outer surface of leaves, stems and flowers and suck out plant sap. They are very small and difficult to detect. Hold a white piece of paper under the plant and shake. Or remove the petals of damaged flowers, place in a sealed jar with 70% alcohol and shake the jar to dislodge and detect the pests. Control is difficult and often not needed as the damage is discovered after the thrips have finished feeding. Provide the proper growing conditions and care for your plants. Avoid excess nitrogen that promotes lush succulent growth these pests prefer. And remove spent flowers that tend to harbor the insects. Manage weeds in the garden and keep thrip-susceptible plants away from weedy areas where the pest populations tend to be high. A bit more information: Beneficial insects like predatory thrips, green lacewings, minute pirate bugs and some parasitic wasps feed upon plant damaging thrips. Invite these good bugs into the garden by planting a diversity of plants and avoiding persistent pesticides. Visit the University of California IPM online for more details on this pest.
