Mother Nature Is Confused
I think Mother Nature is confused? We've had wind chills as low as -25, tomorow the high is going to be 56 and right now it's raining and it's JANUARY!

Instead of snow boots, I had to wear my rain boots this morning. I can't remember when I've ever had to wear the polka-dotted boots during winter...very strange.

Happy Birthday Dad!
Have you ever thrown a surprise birthday party for someone? Let me tell you, it's fun, but stressful at the same time!

Today my Dad turns 60 and we had a surprise birthday party for him on Saturday. I almost had a heart attack when my sister called to say that my Dad was on his way to the house already - which meant he'd be there a half hour early!!!! Thankfully we were able to stall him and we pulled off the surprise!

Happy birthday Dad, thank you for teaching me to follow my dreams and for being my biggest cheerleader! xoxoxo

Rumchata Cupcakes!
My boss brought in the most amazing cupcakes this week at work that his wife, Katie, made!

And they were made with Rumchata, yummy! A lot of people have asked for the recipe and here's what Katie gave me:

Start with 1 box Pillsbury Dark Chocolate cake mix. Instead of 3 eggs, use 4. Instead of water, use RUMCHATA, then add the 1/3 cup oil AND throw in a cup of sour cream and a cup of dark chocolate chips. Mix it all up. Put it in a gallon ziplock bag and cut of a corner for squeezing it into the cupcake tray. (cut the hole big enough to let the chips through!) Bake for approx 18 min. at 350*.

Boo-Hoo I'm Bummed
The Packers season is over and I'm bumming. We had a great run despite some injuries and the mishap in Seattle with the replacement refs earlier in the season.
 
And as a Packers shareholder, win or lose I still love my team. Below is my buddy Sarah doing our "missing man" photo because our boy Donald Driver barely played in the playoff game against San Francisco. Not sure if he'll be back, but it was so much fun cheering for you these past few years Double D that's for sure!

Getting my Butt Kicked
Are you headed to the gym, especially with a new year getting started!

I can't say enough good things about my trainer, Lottie at The WAC downtown! She kicks my butt, that's for sure, but she's motivated me to add elements to my workout...like suspension training with TRX.

It absolutely kills, but I can tell you the payoff is well worth it!
Check out the plank I'm doing here, so hard...but you'll see great results! Good luck with those new year's resolutions! Remember, summer bodies are earned during winter :)

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.
