I Moved

June 26, 2011

I know in the past I kept blog hopping and I finally landed back here. Well this time the move is permanent.

I want to blog about my life, but at the moment my life isn’t too interesting. Plus I’m just too busy to take pictures of little bits of my day. I don’t want to be a blogger who blogs meals daily or all the other mundane things that happen during the day.

So instead I’m going to focus on my passion – baking. As time goes on if I do something really interesting, I’ll blog about it, even if it’s not food related. I just don’t want to feel like I have to blog about my day just to get a blog post up.

So what’s the new blog?

Sweet Treats, Tasty Eats.

Go ahead and follow me over there.

Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

June 21, 2011

Today is proving to be quite the lazy day.

In an attempt to be productive, I decided to fold some laundry. You know, since it’s been sitting there for days. Oops.

Don’t laugh at my fish sheets. They keep me warm in the winter!

Yesterday after posting my Summer 2011 To Do List, I realized that some of my more farfetched to do items, might actually be within reach (2nd concert & roadtrip).

My sister and I have been wanting to see Gloriana in concert again, so I checked their site to see if any new dates were added. A date was added for upstate NY in September. It’s a 3 hour drive, but that’s probably the closest they’ll ever be to us. So it’s a roadtrip and a concert rolled into 1! Plus, it’s at a county fair, so it’s bound to be a lot of fun! I’m crossing my fingers, hoping that we can make it.

Did anyone else hear about this 51 year old actor who married a 16 year old country singer? Does anyone else find this extremely weird? I know age is just a number, but a 35 year age difference when someone is only 16 seems a bit extreme to me. Is it even legal? I guess since they’re married, I’d assume it is, but still…

Summer 2011

June 20, 2011

Tomorrow’s the first official day of summer! Most of the time I spend the majority of my summer indoors, even though I love to get outside.

Well this year, I’ve created a to do list for summer 2011. It’s nothing major, just some things I hope to accomplish this summer.

My Summer 2011 To Do List

  1. Attend a concert
  2. Daytrip to the shore (preferably Wildwood or Avalon/Stone Harbor)
  3. Grill a pizza
  4. Complete 3 mile loop around park
  5. Go to the movies
  6. Visit Washington Rock
  7. Go to an amusement park
  8. Apply to school or get a job
  9. Watch fireworks
  10. Go to the Balloon Festival

Seems like a pretty easy list. Most of these things I’m sure I can accomplish. I didn’t want to put anything on the list that was too farfetched. Although maybe that’d be a good idea.

So here are some things I’d love to do, but are less likely to happen.

11. Visit NYC.

12. Visit the zoo (preferably the Bronx Zoo)

13. Go to a baseball game (preferably the Yankees)

14. Go to a 2nd concert

15. Take a road trip somewhere.

There you have it – 15 goals I would love to accomplish this summer.

Daily Question: What is one thing you’d love to do this summer?

The Most Random Post Ever

June 18, 2011

Last night we had a visitor. An unwelcome visitor.

My sister walked in the door at 1:30ish and the moth must’ve came in with her. We quickly shut the bedroom doors and I managed to get this picture before he decided to fly into the kitchen.

We spent at least 10 minutes trying to find it, but we had no luck. This morning my sister went to take a shower and it was in the bathtub! Luckily this little guy was caught and set free. So much easier than squishing it.

From bugs, to food. What a lovely transition.

I’ve been obsessed with these Kashi TLC crackers. I’ve even gotten my sister addicted.

Here’s another lovely transition for you… food to feet. Better than the other way around….

My feet are always dry and cracking. When I read reviews online for O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet, I knew I had to try it.

So far so good. After 2 applications, there’s a decent improvement. And what’s even better is that it’s not really greasy. I’ve even been putting it on my legs since I’m the dry skin queen.

This was the most random post ever. Boring days = nothing interesting to talk about = randomness.

Bipolar Weather

June 17, 2011

Whew! The weather today was crazy!

I woke up early this morning to thunder and pouring rain.

Then at 4pm I headed out to the bank and CVS and it started pouring again!

And then in true crazy weather form, it stopped and the sun came back out.

Now I have to go to Walgreens. It would be my luck that it would start pouring again.

Smoothie Makin’

June 16, 2011

I woke up this morning, had breakfast, then decided I wanted a smoothie later. My dad had a variety of fruit in the fridge that will be going bad soon, so I figured I should eat some.

I froze some blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, and peaches. At lunchtime, my fruit was frozen enough, so it was smoothie time!

I combined the berries, peaches, ice, and orange-pineapple juice in a blender and 2 minutes later I had a delicious smoothie!

In addition to my smoothie, I also had a salad — cucumbers, hard boiled eggs, cheddar cheese, and egg noodles with ranch dressing. I absolutely love experimenting with salad ingredients. I was also tempted to add some rice to my salad, but I decided to wait until tomorrow.

Later in the afternoon my mom, sister, and I drove to the hospital to pick up my dad. I love the drive up there. It’s up in the mountains, so it’s pretty!

I wish I got a picture of my dream house. It’s on a cliff overlooking the cities below. I believe you can even see the NYC skyline in the distance too!

Peace and Quiet

June 11, 2011

The family’s gone for a bit, so I have the house to myself. It’s nice to have some quiet time.
