and I will rise up with fists

I am trying to be better with my food budget, and a big part of that is planning my meals ahead of time. For a while I was just buying a lot of fish and serving that with a side salad--but fish is expensive, and I have a mortgage to pay now.

Note: we still eat really well. It is not beans and rice only for us or anything (though sometimes I just want a grilled cheese or a bowl of ramen).

So here is my plan for this week, and I figure posting it here will keep a better record than notes on scraps of paper I will lose.

Monday: Pan-fried red snapper and cabbage and shallots cooked with salt pork
Tuesday: Korean braised beef short ribs with sticky rice and Chinese broccoli
Wednesday: Jerk chicken sandwiches with side salad
Thursday: Sweet potato, caramelized onion, and goat cheese galette with side salad
Friday: It's my birthday so I am going out to eat!

So I am about to drop some serious money on a wedding dress I've only seen online. It's kind of my dream dress but it explodes my budget. I haven't found anything else, though, and I wonder if I will if I don't just try it on. Now there is a 30 day return policy so I don't get stuck with it, but it's nerve wracking. Especially since the website selling it does occasionally have sales on its gowns, but there is no guarantee. Ugh, why couldn't this dress be on sale, too?

Packers Stock Sale Begins December 6, 2011. The fangirl irrational part of my brain wants this like WHOA. I'd basically be donating to the Green Bay Packers organization or buying a $250 piece of paper/memorabilia. But I wants it, Precious. I wants it so bad. But I can't justify it. But then I do start justifying it. Like, "I can pass this along to my kids." Or, "They only offer a stock sale every like, 15 years." "It's just one share you want, only a few clams, the amount of money you'd spend on a nice pair of boots," but you'd own the team FOREVER.

Of course, a Super Bowl win last year and an amazing season this year just makes my brain want it more. Would it be ridiculous to ask for it for Christmas? God, what's wrong with me?

So I'm watching Kdramas now (I just finished My Princess) and I loved it like a kid who loves sandwiches loves sandwiches.

Am I reaching or does anyone on my tiny flist also like them, 'cause I want someone with whom I can discuss all the cracky goodness! Gaah!

And this is my first post in a long time, so you know, time well spent.

Seriously, how cute is this?

Y'all, did you hear? MY TEAM WON THE SUPERBOWL. MY TEAM WON THE SUPER BOWL.



Also, I'm totally in love with Aaron Rodgers. Total fangirl sports crush. I'm following him on Twitter now and geek out every time he posts because I'm letting myself be delusional and thinking omg it's like I can talk to him (really, I do know better, and I enjoy watching the tweets fly between him and Clay Matthews and Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley). Let me bask in this moment for one too many days.

Turning 30 in 2 weeks and feeling ok about it so far. I've been ok about it so far but I know as the date comes closer I'm going to be like, OMGWTF.

Jim is planning a few events for my birthday though, which should be nice, and at work they're throwing a happy hour next Thursday to celebrate my birthday, though really you could say they're just throwing a happy hour that falls near my birthday. Still, it's nice to be included like that.

Also, in other news, I'm pretty OK with the fact that we managed to avoid Snowpocalypse 2. Right now it's just raining, and not even freezing rain, which would make the commute pretty unbearable. I'm glad for my friends in the Midwest though, who will actually get a snow day, though good luck digging out. It took us about a week here in the Mid-Atlantic to get out, and even after we did there were still problems.
