Well folks, I got a job!

Ok, I’ll say it again…I got a job!  I really wasn’t looking, as I have been blessed to be able to stay home with the little ones since day one.  It’s been about 8 years since I’ve had a job and was “Me” instead of “Mom”.  Well, as you all probably know from reading the blog, I love kickboxing and the Martial Arts Studio that I Kickbox at called me one day and wanted to see if I would work Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-8pm.  UM YEAH!  Time away from the home, not too demanding and a super fun atmosphere!  I jumped on it.  Now, I’m “Me” for about 5 hours two days a week and can hang up my “Mommy” hat and have adult conversations!  I love it!

So that’s what’s new in my life…Hubby gets home tomorrow night…thank God.

The Facebook page for the Bunco Game Shop really has been doing very well and I wanted to thank you!  You guys are so awesome!!

My dogs are looking at me weird…Maybe I should go feed them or see if they are out of water.

Hey ladies!

This weekend we had our bunco night at Sandi’s house and it was a blast!  We played a couple of rounds of bunco and then some LCR.  I believe I drank too much wine and had too much food.  The food was wonderful and everything was wonderful except one thing…no one brought a camera!!!  AHHHHH!  I guess we’ll only have the memories…no photos.  🙁

My daughter wants to do gymnastics and I’m super excited to find a place for her.  This will help with her attitude…I’m hoping!  She has so much energy and needs to be a part of something.  Anyway, I’m hoping we can get her into it very soon.

My hubby took my son snowboarding Sunday and they had a blast!  That’s my husband’s favorite thing to do and he’s been snowboarding for about 20 years and is so excited that he gets to take the little guy.

They had SO MUCH FUN!  It’s nice to see the quality time together.  🙂  *H A P P Y*

We’ve been getting more “likes” on our Facebook page and I’m happy about that too!  Can’t wait for the giveaway!!  🙂

I feel like crap…you know, that lingering crappy feeling that just won’t go away?  Well, I shouldn’t complain because my dear friend has been walking around with a severe case of bronchitis and after a few weeks, finally got some good meds.  So….I won’t bitch anymore.  😉

Here’s another fab and healthy recipe for you!  😉

Skinny Taco Dip

8 oz 1/3 less fat Philadelphia cream cheese

  • 8 oz 1/3 less fat Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 8 oz reduced fat sour cream
  • 16 oz jar mild salsa
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2.25 oz black olives,

In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream, salsa and taco seasoning and mix well with an electric mixer. Spread on the bottom of a large shallow glass dish. Top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese and black olives. Serve with baked tortilla chips.

Hugs to you all!

After hearing about Pinterest…I finally looked into it and was invited!  I have one for Bunco Game Shop and I must say it’s pretty freakin COOL!
🙂  Lots of fun and pretty addicting.  I love seeing the other bunco lovers out there and all of the great ideas!  I’m going to share something I found today that I really want to try:

 

 

 

 

Arnold Palmer jello shots! 1 box lemon jello, Firefly sweet tea vodka, 10 lemons.  Cut the lemons in half, juice them, pull the pulp and skin out (I did it with my hands, but make sure your hands aren’t dry at all or it will burn!) Line the halves up in a cake pan so they’re snug. Then make the jello, put the mixture in a measuring cup with a spout for pouring and fill the lemon halves. Refrigerate over night and then slice in half again (with a sharp knife) before serving.

Now that I am sucked into pinterest…ahhhhhh!  Another obsession!!!

Today was a good day, I got lots of cleaning done!  Yay!  Hubby comes home tomorrow and hopefully I will sell my treadmill too!  I have someone coming to look at it so cross your fingers for me!  I really hate running…I went through a running phase and my wonderful husband bought me a really nice NordicTrack and now it just takes up room.  If I want to workout, I’ll go Kickboxing or do some P90X or Slim in 6.  So, if I sell it we will have “fun money” for date nights. 😉

My daughter is a ROYAL PAIN IN MY ASS.  I’m hoping you heard that right….she’s a PILL.  Boy, do I have my hands full.  God help me.

Anyone out there have beautiful evil 5 year old daughters?  PLEASE let me know I’m not alone.  🙂

Tomorrow night we are taking the kids to a hockey game!  I’m so excited!

Off to drink my glass of Vodka Tonic and watch some TV after a busy day!

Ta-ta for now!

Hey there all my loyal readers!!!

I had to share a couple of things with you that I thought was a good idea for your bunco night.  I’m wondering if everyone has the big fuzzy dice?  Of course every bunco group must have the big fuzzy dice and if not, you should look into it here

We use it when someone gets a bunco then the fuzzy dice is tossed to that person and then it goes to the next person and so on.  This is a funny little story a fan told me on our Facebook page.

“Just out of curiosity… does anyone else’s Bunco group THROW the big fuzzy die when someone else yells BUNCO!? LOL I’m not talking about a friendly toss… let’s just say it’s a good thing the fuzzy die is soft! 😉 “

We have our January bunco this Saturday the 28th and I can’t wait!  It’s always super fun!  Maybe I’ll win…something.  🙂

I came across this *healthy* Red Beans and Rice soup recipe and wanted to share it too.  With this cold weather, I am ALWAYS wanting soup!  MMMM….plus, it could be good for a Mardi Gras bunco theme too.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups dried 365 Everyday Value® Organic Red Kidney Beans, picked through
3 quarts low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
1 yellow, white or red onion, chopped
1/2 cup dry red or white wine
3 bay leaves
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup red rice
1 tablespoon no-salt Cajun seasoning
1 (16-ounce) package frozen 365 Everyday Value® Collard Greens or Blue Curled Kale
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

Method

Soak beans overnight in a large bowl of water; rinse and drain well. Heat 1/2 cup of the broth in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until deep golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Add wine and cook, scraping up the browned bits, until almost absorbed, 1 or 2 minutes. Add beans, remaining broth and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until almost tender, about 2 hours. (Skim off and discard any foam that shows up on the surface.) Stir in tomatoes, rice and Cajun seasoning, bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until rice and beans are tender, about 20 minutes. Add greens and cook until hot throughout, about 10 minutes more. Stir in parsley and serve in bowls, topped with bell pepper.

If any of you would like to share some of your favorite recipes from your bunco night, please email me or leave a comment on the blog.  buncobetty@buncogameshop.com  I would love to share anything on the Facebook page!  🙂

Happy Monday!  🙂

There are many different rules when it comes to the game of bunco Knowing them all is relatively impossible. However, if you follow these general bunco guidelines, you will be on your way to claiming your prize.

The first thing to do is designate a head table. The head table will have a bell and one fuzzy die, tiara, or boa. All the tables will have 3 dice, a tally pad, and each person will have their own bunco score sheet and pencil. Next, you’ll want to look across the table. This person is your temporary partner, but you must remember not to trust them too much, they won’t be your partner for long.

To start off, the head table will ring the bell. The starting person at each table will then start to roll the dice. Each time a one shows up, the player will get a point. Once a one doesn’t show up, the turn is over. If you are lucky enough to roll 3 ones, be sure to yell BUNCO for everyone to hear, try to ignore their jealous remarks. When you roll the bunco, you will be given the fuzzy die, tiara, or boa to parade around in, 21 points on your score sheet, and full bragging rights. If you happen to roll 3 of a kind, other than ones, you get a funco. You will receive five points for each funco.

Once a team at the head table reaches a score of 21, the bell is rung. At this point, it’s time for the game to stop and everyone to switch places. This is where it can become a little confusing. The winning team at each table will remain at the table, but one person will move one seat. Two new players will join the table and each player will have a different partner. The losing team at each table will have to move to another table and get new partners. Get on your game face and prepare for another round.

Now, the head table will again ring the bell and the starting player will roll the dice again. This time you will be rolling for twos. Bunco gameplay will continue this way until you have gone through all six numbers on the dice, four times for a total of 24 rounds.

Now that you know the rules of the game, it’s time to get rolling on towards your victory.
