Hey Guys! Oh my goodness, this past week has been NUTS here in NYC with all the events leading up to the big day on Sunday. As you might know, I'm a huge football fan, I discussed one reason for this in a previous blog post, go to this link if you're curious (http://www.applesthemule.com/1/post/2013/11/ask-apples2.html), but what you probably don't know is that I used to play when I was a kid! I was the kicker on a pee wee football team, the Portland Thunderstorms. I was the only girl on the team and the only mule too, but it should make sense because we mules are known for our kicking ability! It was super fun and guess what - I have a photo to share to prove that I'm not making this up:
Since the football isn't in this picture you'll just have to trust me when I tell you that I kicked that sucker far! I set all kinds of local records and maybe if I would have kept it up I'd be the first female mule in the NFL. Who knows, anything is possible! Have a great weekend everyone, enjoy the big game and GO SEAHAWKS!!!
That's right, it's time for another addition of:
The holidays are coming up so I was wondering if you have any holiday cooking or crafting tips you'd like to share.
Sincerely, Mary Stalwart
Dear "Mary Stalwart,"
Are you sure that's your real name? It sounds like an alias to me. I think we both know who you are...Martha Stewart!!! Excuse me for being paranoid but I've been convinced for years that Martha Stewart has a camera somewhere and is stealing my recipes and crafting ideas. I swear to you, I'll come up with something on my own and then it'll show up in her magazine the next month! What the heck?! But since you asked "Ms. Stalwart," I'll give you a few tips.
1. Roll your turkey in kitty litter before roasting it, it'll give it an extra crunch!
2. Decorate your holiday table with barbed wire. It'll catch the candle light in the most beautiful way - and prevent people from overeating because passing dishes is a challenge!
3. To save space in your refrigerator just dump all your leftovers out on the front lawn. Raccoons like to celebrate Thanksgiving too!
So there you go "Mary Stalwart" - three tips for the holidays. And if you're not actually Martha Stewart in disguise, well, please disregard these tips. Hahaha!
You seem pretty busy during the weekdays. How do you like to spend your weekends?
Hi Sarah! Yes, I tend to be pretty busy Monday-Friday but there are so many cool things to do in NYC it's often hard for me to relax on the weekends! I love visiting the Met or the Natural History Museum, wandering around Prospect Park for hours or meeting up with friends and getting brunch at one of our favorite spots. Now that it's getting colder I'm starting to stay in a little more and I gotta admit that I LOVE watching football! There's something about hefty guys crammed into spandex smashing into each other that I just can't get enough of......or maybe it's the butt shots - hahahaha! To demonstrate what I'm talking about, may I present to you "NFL Butts!" You're welcome!
