According to this link today is shrimp scampi day. However they have no idea how or who originated it. I would make shrimp scampi today, I guess, but we don't eat shrimp since my mom is allergic to shellfish.
If you want to make it here's a recipe from simplyrecipes.com
1 Heat a sauté pan on high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the olive oil and butter. Once the butter melts, foams up and subsides, add the garlic and red pepper flakes. If using unsalted butter, sprinkle with salt. Sauté for a minute, or until you see the edges of some of the garlic just beginning to brown.
2 As soon as the garlic begins to brown, add the shrimp to the pan. Then add the white wine and stir to combine and coat the shrimp with the butter, oil, and wine. Spread the shrimp out in an even layer in the pan. Increase the heat to the highest setting and let the wine boil vigorously for 2-3 minutes.
3 Turn the shrimp over, or toss them so the cooked sides are mostly facing up, and boil the wine for another minute. Remove from the heat, add the parsley and toss to combine. Add the lemon juice and black pepper.
Serve alone, with crusty bread, over pasta, or over rice (for gluten-free version).
Tomorrow is apparently National Superheroes day? I heard it on the radio this morning, anyone else heard about it?

Oh and it's also daddy's birthday today!
Yesterday was a great day for me! First I was doing a garage sale with caylie and lots of people came and one guy kept haggling with us to the point where he was happy with saving just $1 another funny thing was this lady bought a shirt that was even too small for me (and she was much larger than me) and after she paid for it she said "I'm gonna stretch this to it's limit" I guess she liked it so much because it was from aeropostale. Also we were trying to get rid of this old vintage teddy bear and like 5 people were like "Is that a teddy ruexben?!" and we didn't even know what it was called lol. But no one bought it even though it was only $1. A guy was gonna buy it but he told us to sell it on ebay and it'd be worth something. Then at 10 my mom and me went to look at other garage sales (because it was a community garage sale) And I didn't get anything but alex got a cute purse I picked out and a $1 barbie purple beetle bug car! ($1 can you believe that?! just look up how much those things are sold for!)at another garage sale I also saw this really cute desk I wanted sooo bad and it was only $10 so I got my dad to come look at it, and we ended up getting it but the best part was that my mom and dad met the lady who was selling it and she home schools 4 out of 6 of her children or something like that. So they were talking about homeschool groups and stuff. Then after we went home she sent her daughter and the kids she was babysitting to come get Alexandra to play with, so Alexandra and I went to their house and played half an hour then had to leave because my pappy came over and we ate rice stuffed bell peppers, Lamb chops, and macaroni and cheese, and dinner rolls I made, all the dinner rolls vanished a few minutes after they left the oven. Then after pappy left the delivery guys arrived with our new leather couches! (I'll post a picture) Then caylie really wanted to meet Alexandra's friend's sister Andrea (she's 18) So we went to her house and asked her if she wanted to come to our house. I am going to go over there with Alexandra sometimes, and I am gonna try to get to know Andrea a little better. I really want to meet her younger sister that's 16. Idk her name though... Oh well! I'll find out when I meet her! Right now I'm wondering if you actually read all of this lol. Our goal was to make $85 dollars (which we didn't think we would make quite that much) But we made $62 I think then we took this huge oatmeal container full of coins and got it counted at Publix. Then we got up to $84, we only needed one more dollar! That would have been Teddy Ruexben... Oh well :D
I'm using Alexandra's computer cam for pictures so we have pictures again!
I haven't been able to do alot of posts mostly because of bible quiz since we just had a quiz I had to really study. And it was worth it because we got 1st place I got highest scorer award, and 122 average points per quiz.
We won first place again! Next quiz is in GA. may 24th if you're interested in coming comment on this post.

Bella got the passion fruit juice off but now she has newspaper ink on her paws because she spilled water on the newspaper that was in her box. The first time she got the newspaper stains I washed her feet and it came off so now I'll have to do that again.
I can't upload pictures from an actual camera yet because our USB cable broke.
So instead of pictures looking like this...
They look like..
But as soon as we get the cable they'll be crystal clear as always, The pictures from the computer arn't always as bad as the second picture but the camera is still better for me.
