Volkswagen Bulli Concept

The tale of Volkswagen's Bulli goes back to Wednesday, April 23, 1947. That's the day Dutch VW importer Ben Pon drew a rough sketch of the now internationally famous Transporter 1, or T1, van. In the States, it was known as the Microbus. In Germany, marketers labeled it the Bulli. And this year, in concept form at the 2011 Geneva show, the Bulli has returned with a retro-inspired design, modern usability, and a zero-emission electric powertrain.
The latest six-passenger Bulli is a reinterpreted reinterpretation of what's been billed as the world's first van. VW showed a retro van in 2001 at the Detroit auto show, and like that concept, the more evolved Bulli has a variety of simple, attractive, and classic traits.

The slightly extended nose, for instance, sports an extra-large "VW" badge in the middle of a distinct V-shape. Flanking it are bright L-shaped wraparound LED headlamps and dominant lower fog lights that add a bit of personality to the front clip, while slight intakes provide cool air to the electric powertrain.
The two-tone paintjob divides at the beltline and runs the vehicle's entire 156-inch length. Body panels were machined to portray a seamless look, and blacked-out pillars add a sense of size. The tailgate spans the Bulli's 68.4-inch width, making it ideal for loading cargo. Each corner sits on a chrome-dipped retro-look 18-inch alloy, and, as you can tell, the overhangs remain stubby.

Interior designers continued to meld modern style and classic cues by incorporating twin bench seats. Both can be folded down to maximize passenger comfort during trips, and if need be, the rear bench can completely stow, increasing overall interior space.

Oh how I love, always finding good deals at places I already shop or eat at, and then getting deals to try new places that I want to try, but wish I had a coupon to try them out. For those of you who have never used here is how it works:

1. GET IT - Check your email, Facebook or Twitter feeds for daily deals on cool local businesses.
2. SHARE IT - Groupons are more fun when used with friends. Pass along deals by email or broadcast them to your social networks.
3. ENJOY IT - Print the voucher or bring it up on your mobile device, then present it at the business to get your deal.

So not only can you visit on your computer, but those of you with smartphones there is even an app. No reason not to have Groupon

And it snowed

 Had to take the trash out last night.... had to venture out in the snow!!!

The view from my back patio

The snow didn't last long, by 5:30 this morning it had started raining, melting the snow off. There is still snow of the ground, and the schools where closed today, but really it's just a bunch of slush!!!

The Little Things in Life

I just logged in to facebook and this message was in my inbox. This has made my day, and has me in tears. I will leave the doctor's name off this post, but they have a huge place in my heart. If it wasn't for them and the many other staff in the DNCC Raegan wouldn't be here with us today. Thank you is never enough, and I am glad we can change your life, just has you have done ours ♥ 

-This pic is by my computer in the gets me through the day!


              Many of you know that I never watch the news, and the weather, well when you have lived in Washington your whole life what the weather man says means nothing! The other day I overheard people talking about it starting to snow over the weekend, so just out of curiosity I went to and looked at the 5 day forecast. Sure enough it showed snow for the weekend. Since you can never really count on what the weather man says, I didn't get my hopes up. As an adult you don't get snow days, so the thought of it snowing and sticking just seems like a huge pain when you have things to do. I guess for Raegan's sake I hope we get some snow, since this will be our last winter here in Washington. I guess we shall see overnight what will happen in this wonderful place I currently call home!!!


Waffled Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Baking cookie dough in a waffle iron takes about a minute and a half, a real time-saver when you've got to have warm cookies right away. These cookies, excerpted from the book Dessert Express, look like mini waffles, but they bake up just like oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies, with browned, toasty oats on the outside and gooey, melty chips. Once cooled, they look cute garnishing bowls of ice cream.
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose or unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, if desired

  • Heat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

    In a large bowl, whisk the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.

    Coat the grids of the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Use a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop to portion out a cookie onto each waffle square. Close the iron and cook until set and beginning to brown, 1-1/2 to 3 minutes, depending on the heat of your waffle iron. Use a thin metal spatula to transfer the cooked cookies to a wire rack and repeat with the remaining dough, coating the grids with spray as necessary.

    Makes 42 cookies

    Make Ahead Tips

    The cookies will keep in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days.


    You can substitute raisins or chopped dates for the chocolate chips and add 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg for a more classic oatmeal cookie flavor.

    Dear Dad

    Dear Dad,
    Happy Birthday!  As always, I hope things are well for you. I’ve got so many good things going on lately and wish you were here to see them. I have been volunteering a lot at church, helping on the security team on the weekends, and on Thursday nights I am a table leader for the woman's ministries. Last weekend I was asked if I would plan 10 year high school reunion so I have been busy this week trying to get details worked out. Can you believe it's been 10 years since I graduated!!!

    Raegan is getting so big, I wish you could be here to see how much she has grown. She is just like me, and I see so much of you in her. She no longer needs services on a weekly basis, which I am so excited about. We are struggling with potty training, but I know we will get there soon. She is stubborn just like her Grandpa <3

    I love you, Dad.  And miss you more than I thought I would.  Not that I thought I wouldn’t.
