The results for Mog Madness round 3 went up late on Saturday night and JD let me know before he went to bed that the post should be up within an hour. (Helps to have one of the organizers in your guild!!) So I opened up his blog and kept F5-ing it until the desired post popped up. (His son is adorable and I stared at him for like an hour that night.)
There was some fierce competition and I am honored to say I got 2nd place in this round! Yay! For this next round we have to use the Tabard of the Illidari (either green or purple) to put something together. (Ugliest tabard EVER!) I have a outfit mostly put together for the purple one. I'm gonna see if I can put together one for the green one and see how it looks and then decide between those two.
During all this planning and thinking, we downed some bosses in Dragon Soul on Saturday evening. We did our usual heroic Morchok, then moved onto regular Warlord (since heroic makes me want to weep) and THEN did heroic Yor'sahj. It was one of those times that we were like "Hey, let's make a few shots at this and then we can just move on and head to Firelands." I think we did 3 or 4 attempts before it just jelled and bam, first kill. So now we're 3/8 in Heroic DS!
We did the first 4 bosses in DS on Saturday and then moved to Firelands. We were helping our resto shaman to get the first part of the staff done, the part where you drop all those things under the bosses feet or whatnot. So we did that and then helped him get the first part of the staff. After we did that, we cleared a ton of trash and did Shannox's achievement, Bucket List. This leaves us with 3 achievements to go for our pretty birdy from Firelands, 2 heroic kills that I know we'll get and Alysrazor's stupid achievement.
Other then that, I didn't log into the beta all weekend, though my husband did. I worked on my blood elf warrior for a bit, did some actual real life house things (like helped put up a fence in the back yard) and made a ton of food for Easter/my mother in law's birthday lunch. And while this isn't WoW related, I love to cook so here are the recipes I used for the things I made:
Gluten Free Angel Food Cake (was amazing and everyone loved it and what it was made into)
Strawberry Lemon Trifle (took angel food cake and I can't have gluten so I had to make it myself)
Avocado Deviled Eggs (everyone loved these but I hate hard boiled eggs and I'm never making these again!)
Baked Spasanga (this was AMAZING and everyone ate mostly this instead of the 'normal' food. I made it with corn noodles so it would be gluten free. In a HUGE dish, I only had 3 servings left over. Every single person had some. So 7 adults and 2 small children (2 and 4).)
So yeah. I hope everyone had a good weekend. I know I did. I also got to play my warrior for a bit and she did her 1st dungeon with guildies and also got to level 55!! Woo!!!
