Buffets Are Nasty Unless You Like Your Food Sneezed On

Disclaimer: I’m not a fan of Buffets…

But I’m sure the Title gave that away.. LOL


The Nasty Buffet


The other day I came across this above picture on Pintrest. It was an article on Huffington Post.  I had to laugh as it pretty much sums up my thoughts on most buffets.

I know for many of you, Buffet’s might be the wholly grail of fine dining. After all, who wouldn’t love 8 plates of crab legs? Oh yea, me… I hate seafood remember.   :-)

Some of the longest lines I’ve ever seen are those at a casino’s Buffet. Heck, people will pay $40-$50 for those seafood buffets! That is crazy. Go to a nice restaurant people!  lol

While you may see a buffet and hear the angels sing, I see a buffet and just see food that is an hour or more old, hands picking through it, sneezing, germs. People playing with my food. Cooked with zero seasoning and barely recognizable as the true food it is.  crablegs

Heck, even those crab legs you love so much have you spending hours cracking and digging for little meat and lots of water. No wonder you need to eat 8 plates.  LOL

Now, I will say in defense of Buffets, they are one step up from the grosses thing on earth…PEAS!  Yep, if you recall, I think they are little round balls of puke!

So, what do you think of buffets?  Nasty or Heaven to you?

Have You Started a Pay it Forward Wave Yet? Start at McDonalds

Pay it Forward

Giving and Getting Can Feel So Good!


the waveWe all remember sitting at a sporting event and watching the wave of people standing and flinging their arms created a “wave”. If you have not had the opportunity yet to be part of a modern day wave at McDonalds then you are missing out. This one comes with a big smile and lot of happiness.


Like many of you, I run out the door every single day to go earn my keep. Unfortunately the bills do not pay themselves (at least not what I’ve been able to discovery yet).  Occasionally as part of my routine I go through our local McDonald’s for a sausage McMuffin and a drink. Being on a tight budget I allow myself this $2.38 splurge a couple times a week.


On more than one occasion I have been part of an amazing trend happening at McDonalds across the world. I’m not sure how big this is in your area or your town but in my little city our citizens that frequent our local McDonalds have loved a Pay it Forward Wave.


McDonalds ArchesHere’s how it works. On my most recent trip to the golden arches. I pull into our drive thru and order my normal breakfast splurge. I have a gift card that is burning a hole in my pocket so I’m all prepared for my expensive $2.38 meal. While waiting, I noticed a weird thing going on at the pay window. Every car that stops seems to be having an issue. The kid looks to be explaining stuff to them and it doesn’t look like they are verifying a caramel latte vs an iced coffee. All of a sudden I smile because I have seen this confusion before. Yes, I know exactly what this is as I have experienced this myself a few weeks ago.


About a month ago I was making this same routine stop. When I got to the window the teenage clerk just smiled at me and said “You don’t owe anything as the car ahead of you paid for your order.”  I can only imagine my face because I’m sure my look was one of being dumb founded. All I could do was just stare at the 18 year old with a look of confusion and thoughts racing through my head of what am I supposed to do next? So I froze and said, “ah ah… thank you”. Feeling stupid because I really didn’t know what you’re supposed to do next.


As I pulled away, I realized I was just part of the magic moment. Yes I was part of a Pay it Forward McDonalds moment. If you’ve ever been part of one you know the feeling I’m talking about. I also knew that if it happened again, I would know what I would do. What I had to do.


The neat thing about these Pay if Forward moments is they are totally random. So on this particular trip the other day I could see from the confusion going on in front of me that we might be on another wave and I was not going to be the one that broke that wave. No I was not going to be the person sitting in my seat with my arms crossed, a scowl on my face not wanting to participate in this event. This time I was going to jump out my seat with all the enthusiasm I could muster.


Pay it ForwardWhen I got to the window and was told that the car in front of me had paid my $2.38 breakfast I knew what to do this time. First I waved at the car in front of me a thank you (not that I think they saw me but it felt like the right thing to do). Then I asked what the car behind me owed. Now in this situation your worst fear is that it’s a lady with 8 kids in a van. So I looked in my rearview mirror and noticed one person in a car so I felt pretty confident that I was not going to get stuck with a $30 breakfast order. While I was prepared to do my part, my gift card was reminding me that it only had so much on it.


She smiled, looked at the next order than with a little look of disappointment told me that it was more than mine as they owed $8.62. But I knew that wasn’t going to end this wave! Not today. I knew I needed to make another person’s day. I knew I was paying it forward!


So I pay the $8.62 and slowly start to crawl up to the next window. All the while looking in my rear view mirror hoping that not only do get to make the next person’s day but they will continue the wave and make even more people happy this morning. Sure enough the smiling clerk is trying to explain what happened. I see the finger pointing at my truck and then I see it happen! I see them hand over their credit card. Yes! They were continuing the wave! They were paying it forward too! They were paying for the next car!


No I don’t know how many cars we’re in that wave that morning. But I do know that at least from what I could see there were 7 cars for sure. Seven people who started their morning with a big smile because somebody cared about them and then they got to do what made them feel good. They got to pay it forward too. The act of giving feels so good.


McDonaldsNow some of you might think the joy over having a $2.38 breakfast paid for seems so minor. But it has nothing to do with the $2.38. It has to do with knowing that there is still joy in the world. Love in the world and people that care. With so much negativity on TV and in our social media it is nice to know there are still people out there who get joy in helping others. No matter how small.
So if you have never experienced the McDonalds Pay it Forward Wave then I challenge you to start one. On your next trip to McDonalds just casually ask the cashier what the car behind you owes.  Then offer to pay for their meal. Don’t have a lot of Money? Then do it at breakfast. Most people are like me getting a sandwich and a drink and many others are just getting a coffee. It isn’t about how much you pay it forward just that you do pay it forward.


So go on out and make someone else’s day. I promise it feels good!

Two New Kiddos in the House

Meet My New Babies


Upton and BuddyA few weeks ago I brought two new babies home. Please meet Buddy & Upton. These two little guys make me smile and laugh each day!

Buddy is on the left and Upton on the right.

Granted, I’m not laughing at 5am when they want to go out to go “potty”. LOL

Living in the desert has its challenges with little dogs. Having no real backyard, it isn’t like we can just let them out to roam around. They must be taken out to go and they always think it is play time.

The other thing I’ve learned is, neither like thunder! We have had several storms (including one right now as I write this). Ever see two 5lb Yorkies shaking like there is no tomorrow?

I’m sure I’ll be sharing some of our adventures in the future so I thought I’d take a moment to introduce them to you.

I better go, the storm is getting worse and they need to be held. Time to be a good mommy.   :-)

Laughing for No Reason ~ Minion Style

Laugh Just Because

Minions Laughing 2

Have you ever been driving down the street and catch something out the corner of your eye that just makes you start laughing for no reason what so ever?  I do…. All the time.

Ever find yourself just smiling for no reason?  I do…All the time.

Life is too short to not find joy in the little things.

When I catch myself laughing for no reason I just start laughing more at how silly and stupid it is that I laugh for no real reason. LOL

Then I realize…It is just the happiness that lies deep within us trying to come out!

Many of these times I don’t think I’m happy or even sad..just there in the moment.

Then BOOM!

Happiness and Laughter sneak out.

(sneaky little laughing buggers they are)


Enjoy those moments. It is ok to be happy for no reason.

It is ok to laugh for no reason.

Who cares what other think.

The Minions don’t care…so why should we?

Just enjoy the feeling

Laugh for No Reason!!

Cornfield + Summer in Arizona = This

So, I’m confused… 

Here in Maricopa out by where I live there are quite a few of these Cornfields


I’m driving home and got to thinking…

(scary, I know)


With Arizona being 110 – 115 degrees and having a dry, hot one of these

Shouldn’t this field look more like this? 

Now that I think about it….There are cows near by so if we use them for this….

Then we are all set!!

Riddle Me This….

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?


StudyingI love riddles. I love taking on the challenge. However, when doing simple basic riddles, sometimes we can be made to feel that we are NOT smarter than a 5th grader.  LOL

The other day I was doing some riddles with a 12 and 8 year old. I was pretty impressed how well they did. Turns out their dad does them with them. A great idea, get those problem solving skills going early and hone them as they grow. Otherwise they become like us….not smarter than a 5th grader.    😀

Ok, here are a few easy riddles to stretch your riddle muscle… Answers Below…Good Luck! 


Q 1: Mary’s father has 5 daughters – Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono. What is the fifth daughters name?


Q 2: Is an older one-hundred dollar bill worth more than a newer one?


Q 3: Mr. Smith has two children. If the older child is a boy, what are the odds that the other child is also a boy?


Q 4: What travels around the world but stays in one spot?


Q 5: In a one-story pink house, there was a pink person, a pink cat, a pink fish, a pink computer, a pink chair, a pink table, a pink telephone, a pink shower– everything was pink!
What color were the stairs?


Ok, Let’s see how you did….






A 1:  Mary is the 5th daughter

A 2:  Of course it is. A $100 bill is worth more than a $1 bill (newer one)

A 3:  50%

A 4:  A stamp

A 5:  There weren’t any stairs, it was a one story house!



How did you do?

How many of the 5 did you get right?
