I bet you didn't know...

I bet you didn't know that I dance with my dogs... I typically camp out in the kitchen while I'm cooking and wait for the food to need me again by listening to music and drinking wine.

Sidenote - I wish that my iphone would realize that I'm cooking dinner and am not in the mood for Snoop Dogg to pop up on the shuffle. Save it for Old School Rap Friday afternoons please. One day they'll come out with a "smart ipod" or maybe I just invented it? Anyone good with technology crap? contact me. We'll go into business and start selling our idea around. Then before you know it. Bam. I'm retired!
Phew, settle down Christine you're WAY off topic... If you're still reading, I'm impressed, gold star reader goes to you! Yay!

Back to reality, I re-created a pizza we had at UpperCrust one night and while I was waiting for the pizza to cook I think it was Ray LaMontagne that came on and I got the urge to dance. Lil Coop Dogg wanted to join me. So we danced in the kitchen.

Don't worry, I danced with Nigel too.... until he tried to bite my hand.
Don't worry, he's not a mean dog, his previous owners, Dave and his old roommate, just used to think it was funny that Nigel hated having his paws touched.I think he's scarred.
Ding! The pizza's ready, Nigel and Cooper were saved by the bell!
In case you care, this pizza was Deeeelish and it had the following on it: a little marinara, some scattered scoops of ricotta, chicken, sauteed red onion, jalapenos and mozzarella. Try it, you'll love it!
(yes this screenshot is from today, but the weather was the same!)

Last night the weather was perrrfect for dining alfresco, so we enjoyed some of the below after playing some tennis in the crazy wind. At one point I was in the middle of a leaf tornado, but it felt good to be back on the court! 

How have you all been enjoying this awesome spring weather? And by you all, I mean you ALL, I see you all reading and not commenting. Let me know who you are! I bet we'd totally get along and be bff! Plus if you comment, chances are I'll write you back something totally witty! If you're still just here to creep then you're in luck - I added a link to my twitter on the side - check it out! Follow me and I'll try to entertain you through all venues of social media! :)

Weather = awesome!!! Wish I was enjoying it more. Maybe a pandora station would be the cure for your perfect dinner needs?

Haha... I can't go on being called a creep! I agree- the weather here is PERFECT this week!

And for the record: we should totally get together for some tennis sometime! Enjoy your weekend!

I couldn't be happier that the weather is warming up. Usually I'll take the cold for as long as I can get it but this year I'm ready for sunshine. It's supposed to be 80 here today and I'm beside myself I have to sit inside all day at work. I'm considering dragging my office to the roof.

Have a great weekend!
