Dear Friends...

As you know I will be spending 4 weeks in China. We will visit lots of different places and I will be really, really busy. I created blog just for my china trip. And since I heard that Blogger is blocked by Chinese something ( not sure who controlls that), then my friend will update for me. I will email her and she will copy and paste. BE patient!!! I'll BE BACK....

and here is my new blog address that is empty right now.

Way to exited to do anything at all. lol Few days ago I found out that my camcorder has no manners . lol battery lasts only 10 minutes and images look kind of all off color pinkish. So today I went to Best BUY and got myself new awsome toy. I wanted to get camcorder with dvd in it, but after 20 minutes of touching and flipping and talking and other things I decided to get regular one. I got myself Canon Elura 100 digital camcorder. It is nice and small and beautiful :) Maybe now I get China into my computer just the way I want it ;)

My complection...

Proactive is my answer. I swear. That thing works. After my first wash my skin felt smoother and cleaner. On third day I had 70% less break outs and now, week later I started using it, by skin is getting better and better every minute. I only use it for my body, not to my face, and I feel really exited that finally SOMETHING works. :) LOVE IT :)

4 more days and we are on our way to CHINA!!! ! yeah, I can not wait . I sooo want to get out of here and see and experience china. :)

Last time I had my hair done by professional hairdresser I paid 100 dollars and it was year ago for color( highlights). So , On saturday afternoon I went back to my hairdresser with an Idea and she was more than exited to do it because at least I wanted something more " funky" and "original". lol After 2,5 hours I ended up looking ALMOST the way I wanted to look. Color was littlebit OFF but I was happy. BUT what made me almost pass out was THE pricetag my head came with.... 200 dollars+tip..... I was not ready for that price. I had no Idea that prices had gone up so much on that hair place ( THe Art Of Hair). But oh well, that was my fault, I did not check with my hairdresser first.

1000 dollars poorerererer. Yup, thats me. I had to take my car back to dealership to get it fixed. Yesterday, after I dropped Regina off to school, I was on my way home when suddenly something weird happened- My car did not want to stop.... So warning signs, no weird guys yelling- YOUR BRAKES ARE OUT, YOUR BRAKES ARE OUT.. Luckily I was driving only 10 miles an hour and hand brake did the thing.... Brakes, and fuses( or whatever they call those things that light up those warning lights) , and rotary something costed me almost 1000 dollars. Yuck. Now at least I do not have to worry about brakes another year. ( yup, ever year almost same time, same problem).

And. I am not sure what the heck is going on with this CA weather. One day it is steaming hot and then suddenly it is cold and raining. So stupid . Global warming??? duh... Well, all that weird weather has invited some outdoor bugs indoors. I flushed 6 spiders today and got bitten by one. And they keep coming in. Small, big, black, brown... . spiders... I hate spiders and kids hate spiders... yuck...

AND I AM EXITED to tell you that one more week and I'll be out of here... I hope China can handle me...

Mexican Burgers.

I really think that America has gone grazy.... lol Next new best thing- MEXICAN BURGERS. lol Who knew that mexican have burgers, ( but of course since Estonians have them, why not to let mexicans have them also....

Well, here is the recipe. I really needed to eat something different today, so I made these burgers.
Recipe came from Cooking Pleasures magazine..( Photo by Diana Tan)

Mexican Burgers
1-1/2 lb. ground beef
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
1 pickled jalapeno chile (I used diced green chiles)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon grate lime peel (I omitted)
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 slices Monterey Jack cheese

1/2 cup Jalapeno-Lime Mayonnaise
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
1/2 cup Quick-Roasted Chile Salsa ( or any other salsa)
1 cup Quick Guacamole

In medium bowl, gently mix together beef, cilantro, green onion, chile, garlic, chili powder, lime peel and salt. Shape into 4 patties. Heat grill. Place burgers on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal hrill 4-6 inches from medium coals; cover grill. Grill 8-10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center, turning once. Top each burger with one slice cheese, grill 1 minute or until cheese has melted. Spread each roll with 2 tablespoons of the Jalapeno-Lime Mayonnaise. Place lettuce on top of tolls; top with burgers, salsa and guacamole.

I loved them. I am not big on buns, so I just had a burger, lettuce, with all the other stuff on it. And it tasted delicious. :):):) Simple and great and tasty recipe. :):)

I just made one of the biggest mistakes of my life... I opened bottle of red whine that is just horrible. ( I should not be drinking red wine anyway, but I do not trust my doctor- I am planning to tell him that- glass of wine , keeps a doctor away..... Anyway, we are members of Wine club of California and every month we get 2 bottles of red wine delivered to our doorstep... Last month they sent us Caparone family winery wines. One that I opened is Cabernet Sauvignon. It is just WAAAYYY to strong and overpowering. I absolutely hate it. yuck. Yuck, yuck.

But, my latest good wine experience is thanks to Leila. For my birthday she gave me bottle of Rawsons Retreat Shiraz Cabarnet. This wine just tasted right. It was very smooth and calming (;) I LOVED IT. My new fave :):):)

Ok. Now I have to figure out what am I going to with rest of the Caparone bottle. Yuckkkk...
