Updates: April 2014

still not dead

Things have been crazy busy around here with Free Comic Book Day around the corner, working four jobs, getting health care, car shopping, and bridesmaid duties.

Things to come:

Me not disappearing for weeks at a time. Woot!

I will be writing up a post about what I’ve learned about the car buying process because I went in knowing nothing and it was scary getting started.

There are so many reviews I need to shoot for books and comics, I can’t wait to share my new favorites with you guys!

May begins the Girls Only Comics Club at Collectors Corner- Bel Air, which I’ll be running. I am so excited! We will be reading Rat Queens volume 1. It’s such a fun read!

All of the art projects! Lots of goodies are in the works, especially things for bridal shower/parties so I am going to have so much fun showing you guys the process and outcome.

So. Much. Stuff. So excited!

Craftuber Tag and Avocado Mango Shrimp

Today’s video is another tag, the craftuber edition!

Here is the recipe I was telling you guys about:

Shrimp with Avocado Mango Salsa


Photo originally from Self

This recipe originally called for couscous but we replaced it with brown rice (it was 90 second rice, which we prepared according to the directions, not inside the packet) and because it was 9pm and freezing we baked the foil packets in the oven at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

It was delicious and surprisingly filling; Cliff hasn’t stopped raving about it to his friends. This recipe is a keeper.

Table Top Day 2014

Victor and Aly Table Top Day 2014

We had a great turn out at the store today. It’s great to see so many different kinds of people, strangers, enjoying each others’company. We had local businesses contribute delicious food, which we were able to serve for free, and we gave away a bunch of awesome door prizes and grab bags. My only regret is that I wasn’t able to play many games, but I am so happy to see so many local folks enjoy it as much as I do.

Here are some snap shots from around the store, including our raffle prizes, the winners, and our fantastic turn out.
