Things I’ve Googled recently

So, I was googling something recently and my google search history popped up and it was craziness all the random things that I think about and/or look up. . .. so I thought it might be amusing to share with you some of the recent things I have looked up. . .

Amaretto sour recipe – I was double checking the “correct” way to make an amaretto sour. I always make it with amaretto + sprite and it’s delicious.


But apparently, the actual recipe has sour mix in it as well.

Mr. Golden sun song. Do you know that song? Scott looked at my like a was crazy when I started singing a little part of it to Luke one afternoon and then I couldn’t remember how it went, so I looked it up. And Scott swears he’s never heard it.

The Heir – Keira Cass.

I can’t believe I still haven’t read this book. I loved the first books in the Selection series and was waiting and waiting for the final book to come out. So, I checked to see when or if it had come out. .. it was released in May. If you haven’t read the series, I can’t recommend it enough!

How to peel garlic? Also known as.. .  there is no good way to peel garlic.

Average temp in Key West in January? because we are going there in January!!

how does Dexter end?

I couldn’t remember if I had watched the last season of Dexter or not. Bad news for me, I haven’t watched it, but I didn’t figure it out until I read most of a synopsis  of the very last episode of the series. Total spoiler.

what is the most expensive buffet in Vegas?


Yup, $58 is an insane amount for a buffet. But the Bucchanal is amazing. Still not worth it, but still delicious. For the record, the second most expensive buffet is at the buffet at the Wynn at $40.

cosmopolitan fire.

The last time I was in Las Vegas, Laura and I stayed at the Cosmopolitan {btw – I would totally recommend that hotel – super nice!} and they had a huge fire at their pool this winter. And apparently, Scott hadn’t heard about it, so I pulled up pictures to show.

why does mayo clinic have three shields?

I just attended a leadership conference at Mayo Clinic and Scott and I were talking about the Mayo Clinic logo and the three shields. He thought it was to honor the founders, Dr. William Worrall Mayo and his sons, Dr. William James and Dr. Charles Horace Mayo, but I was pretty sure it was the representation of the three main activities of Mayo Clinic-patient care, research and education. So, I had to look it up to see who was right. . . and yup, it was me. Smile

how to tell when a fig is bad.

I tried out Hello Fresh meals (use this code P4W57Z for $40 off your first delivery!) and got busy and didn’t eat one of the meals for about a week and when I took the figs out of the container, I had no idea if it was still good or not. And honestly, I’m still not sure if they were good or not. I decided to err on the side of caution and didn’t use them. The meal was still awesome.

can you bring a razor in your carry on? I probably fly twice per year, so I can never remember all the TSA guidelines, so I always have to double check while I am packing. The answer was yes.

What crazy or interesting things have you searched for lately??

  1. Love it!! I read the selection books over the course of a week and was SO MAD when I read “the heir”. I thought the heir would be a baby and we’d wrap up the issue. Since they decided to fast forward I was okay with that, a little twist to the typical story line, but I was not a fan of the ending.

  2. Dean sings the sun song at his story time each week! I barely recall it from my childhood but it is a fun one and kiddos love it 🙂 Also, is it bad I’m considering crashing your vacay for a day so I can see you?!! 😉 You’re going to have so much fun and I am going to do a few recaps next week on the blog to hopefully give you ideas of things to do. Or you know, we could be normal people and talk about it, hahahah.
