Company Girl Coffee 02.20.09

Good morning Company Girls!

This morning I am drinking cinnamon hazelnut coffee. It is quite yummy. I also had oatmeal with Splenda brown sugar for breakfast, with a couple Caramel deLite Girl Scout cookies on the side. So delicious. And so bad for me.

I didn't do wonderfully on my Small Things points this week. I had a lot of things scheduled in the evenings after work, which dwindled my free time at home down to zilch. Hopefully next week I will have a bit more time and can earn a few more points.

Yesterday was Dave's 28th birthday. :) I got him a couple 116 Clique CDs (a Christian rap group) that were highly recommended by his friend, Jack. I listened to one on the way to work today and I liked it quite a bit. (Yeah, Dave has one of those cool wives who likes rap music....hehe. ;) )

Dave also somewhat randomly bought a tent back around Christmastime that he said could count toward his birthday. Since I have yet to go anywhere with him where we've needed a tent, I acquiesced.

For dinner we went to Lilly's Pizza, one of his favorite pizza places, where they serve GINORMOUS strombolis for somewhere around 9 dollars. I ate maybe a third of mine. And they even fill them with really good ingredients, such as chicken, pine nuts, and sun-dried tomatoes. My only complaint was that I did not like the atmosphere. It pretty much felt like a downtown dirty bar. It was hard to breathe in there, despite the fact that there wasn't any smoking. It definitely wasn't a place I would have chosen. But, it was my honey's birthday, so I went. And the food was definitely awesome. I think next time I may vote for takeout.

Tonight a bunch of Dave's good friends are meeting us for sushi at Waraji. I haven't trained myself to eat sushi yet, so I will probably be eating some type of Asian stirfry. Then everyone's heading back to our place for half-cooked brownies, which Dave requested instead of a birthday cake (and I completely understand why).

Ok, so now for the trivia answer to last week's Company Girls post:

Q: What scientific fact did Isaiah mention in the Bible centuries before it was proven true by scientists?

A: That the world was round.

He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.

He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,

and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

-Isaiah 40:22

And now for this week's trivia:

True or False: Animals have to answer to God, too.

I hope everyone has a splendid weekend!

God bless,


  1. false?!
    I've never had half-baked brownies. What do you do, just bake them half of the time, or is there something special? Yum!
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Sounds like a great week...much better than nursing sickos all week! Enjoy the weekend!

  3. Coffee and cookies... there is no better combination. That Girl Scout Cookie is, I think, my favorite cookie of all time.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  4. What a beautiful blog - and thanks for the Girl Scout cookies and coffee - delicious! Hope you have a blessed weekend!

  5. MMMMMM...Caramel deLite cookies are my favorite! I never have to share them with my DH because he doesn't like coconut!

    My DH is making homemade oreos with the kids this evening. They'll be ready just in time for dessert!

    Have a good weekend!

  6. mmm I had decaf creme brulee coffee this morning, delish! Hope you have a good weekend and I'm voting false :)

  7. It could just be that I haven't found an acceptable pizza place in Seattle, but just thinking of Lilly's makes my mouth water. Their food is amazing, although I agree, takeout isn't a bad idea. :) Wow, I really miss that lil place.

  8. It took me awhile to get used to Japanese food. I would love some brownies right now...but I have my glucose tolerance test coming up, so I have to be good. Happy belated birthday to your hubby!

  9. Hmmm, I would say false...they don't have to answer for sins, but they do have to praise him.

    Half-baked brownies sound great. My mom and I bake brownies, and just before they are done we squish them down to make them chewy. Yummy...I may have to make some very soon!

  10. I think I will have to say "false" to the question..but you've stumped me before. I know someone who is convinced they live eternally, but I'm not quite sure about that.

    I have never had sushi....I just can't bring myself to try it! I know people who are addicted to acquaintance's 4 year old was quite a conneseur. (I'm too lazy to look up the correct spelling of that, I know it's wrong)

    I hope you have an awesome week!
