They should! Too funny.
When I get laundry out of the dryer I dump all the clothes on to my hubby's side of the bed to fold. I've always done this. Like, since we started living together 6 years ago. I always forget to pick up the bounce sheets after I'm done and somehow they always end up on my hubby's pillow. Sometimes, even under the fitted sheets or under his pillow or maybe under the blanket and I'm sure under the bed as well. Oh and it's always on his side of the bed only. This drives my hubby absolutely insane. He actually accuses me of doing it on purpose as a cruel joke. I swear I don't. I have no idea why I always forget to pick those suckers up. I think it's because I can't see them...our duvet cover is white and I don't wear contacts when I'm at home. Actually, that's a flimsy excuse. I have no excuse. It's like I have bounce sheet amnesia or something....~sigh~
2. Make a fabulous (low calorie) dessert for Hubby
My poor Hubby is passed out right now. He is snoring up a storm too. I think I made him pass out. He's been complaining about not feeling well all day and he was running a slight fever. I decided to be a good wife and make him a yummy but healthy dessert. Well, it was a disaster! I decided to make this recipe for tiramisu because it looked super easy to make and at only 200 calories it looked like a winner. OMGosh, it was disgusting. First of all, 1/2 cup of Kahlua is waaayyyy too much liquor and second, I think it was a mistake using fresh (soft) lady fingers. I think I might be a bit tipsy...yeesh! I've made tiramisu before, like, 5 years ago from scratch and it was very time consuming but delicious. I guess this is what I get for making "instant" dessert. Anywho....I served my hubby a small slice of this "creation" and he promptly passed out. Boo me!!
Oh and did I mention that I had an accident with the cocoa powder? Yep, I accidently spilled it everywhere! Ugh! I did manage to snap a few pics with my phone....lol.
PS - I don't actually think it was my cooking that made him pass out (I hope), I think he is truly sick.
3. Watch a movie of Hubby’s choice
Friday night my Hubby wanted to watch Tron so I gave in and watched it with him...it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I did fall asleep about half way in though....hehe...
6. Visit the Capital of Texas Zoo
We made it out to the zoo yesterday and it was very meh. Austin does not have a cool zoo…we have 2 very small zoos. I think they are more of an animal rescue/sanctuary than a real zoo. Austin also lacks cool museums. I grew up minutes from the museum district and the zoo in Houston so I was a bit disappointed when I moved here. Oh and we don't have any amusement parks either….lol.
Anywho, I did have fun though….it was a beautiful day yesterday and it felt good to get some sun. I didn’t take my camera but I took some pics with my phone.
This little guy was so hilarious! He was bouncing up and down with his back to us and I was trying to take a pic of his cute butt and he turned suddenly and leaped on to the front of the cage! It was so cute!
A whole lotta guinea pigs
Mr. White Tiger
They had a lot more animals but I didn't take pics of all of them. I’m glad I went but I won’t be going back again. It was kind of depressing. It was painfully obvious that they are in serious need of some major funding. It was very sad…if I was a millionaire I would donate whole lotta money.

All in all I think it was a successful weekend so far. We might be taking a drive out to look at Tiny Tot Rat Terrier Puppies this afternoon. I'm still on the fence though....puppies are soo much work! My hubby is practically begging me to get another one but he's not the one who has to take of it all day! If we do go I will for sure take pics!
Jina, loved the pics! Your dinner looked really good, and the animals were very cute. Even the low cal dessert looked fab - sorry you didn't like the way it turned out. You are doing great on your list!!!
Thanks Alissa! I let the dessert sit in the fridge for a few hours and I guess the lady fingers soaked up the alcohol and it was quite edible! Maybe even good! lol

Cooking the beef! I had to make it in two batches....

All together now!
The finished product!
I think it was a success! My hubby LOVED it and I did as well. The prep work was a bit time consuming but so worth it. I like having everything ready to go before I start cooking so I can wash dishes while the food is cooking. lol I like having the dishes done before we sit down to eat...
Jina, that looks amazing! I *must* have the recipe!
Jina, I have to ask.. have you tested again yet? I'm kinda stalking you Rachael

Rachael, Hi there! Thanks for stalking me...lol. I did test 2 days ago (7 dpo - I think). It was a BFN. I *know* it was way to early but I just couldn't help myself. I'm going to try really hard to not test until AF shows up but I'll probably end up testing in a few days......haha!
I'm going to start stalking you too (hope you won't mind)!
