Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #193

TGIF! I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek into the week of This Scattered Life.

This week seemed to go by in a flash. We’ve been making plans for house renovations and getting rid of anything we don’t really love or use. Now that we’ve been in our home over a year, it’s time to get busy on some changes. We have our master bath remodel almost complete – and I can’t wait to get started on the next project. (Self admitted character flaw – I tend to get things about 90% complete and then I’m off doing something else. I’m working on it!)

But you can’t focus completely on a project and not have any down time. Lately for me, that seems to consist mostly of “downward dogs” and experimenting in the kitchen. This week it’s been Thai Chicken Bites, jalapeno poppers, more onion rings, Amazing Chicken Wings, Jalapeno Artichoke Dip and these Chocolate Ecstasy Fruit & Nut Bites. Damn, they’re good!

It hasn’t all been food and work though. I also went to a friend’s house for a paint and sip party. AND, my first ever Denver Nuggets game. Our friend had complimentary suite tickets. We enjoyed the company, the people watching and the food, (surprise, surprise).

But what I didn’t expect – was to like the game so much. It was down to the wire, and Denver pulled off the win with only seconds to spare. Who knew basketball could be so exciting? I really may become a sports fan yet!
