My fellow blogging besties. I have returned after a rather short but much needed personal time off. I hope everyone had a wonderful week. It is kinda of flying by for me. Maybe that was because I was too busy being a real girl wearing real girl clothes.
Before I begin and partially the reason I needed to come back so quickly. My bestie Anna, (better known as aDuBs…but only because I call her that and she hates it) has created and a blog and I’m going to personally make sure each of you become her biggest fan.
So go there now because she is amazing and fabulous and the only one to put up with me for 10 years. God knows no one else can. So go. NOW!
And because I’m on the topic of aDuBs…I goggled her name into my 1500 photos and found some winners.
This must have been over Thanksgiving.
This was in the middle of glassblowing class last summer. Clearly we were studious.
In one of those mall booths. I was so confused of what we were doing bahaha.
10th grade cruise! (and yes my hair is that color when I don't dye it)
As you can clearly see she puts up with my crap. ha.
Fun fact of the week: I wore real girl clothes and looked presentable every single day. I also wore a bathing suit and running spandex most days too but there were clothes that wouldn’t make you question that I was a member of society (as my dad says).
Whenever I don’t wear “real girl clothes” the daddykins always tells me I’m not ready to be a productive member of society for the day. Which 9/10 days I wear real girl clothes so I don’t have to put up with his sassyness.
Speaking of the daddykins, if you are in the VA Beach area and you go over the bridge right after the downtown tunnel off of 264, my dad’s old ship is in the drydock. I tried to have a photoshoot with the ship but it was an epic fail. No, I wasn’t driving and yes I will capture more photos because it will be there for a while.
Noms of the week:
I had like 20 salads this week. Have you ever just craved your greens? Each was pretty decent but the one at my favorite diner ever (the Silver Diner) was the best. Salmon, cranberries, mango, strawberries, spinach…other random things. The lady asked if I wanted to salmon filets and I responded with…a fatties got to eat. I guess that meant two because that is what she gave me.
oh yes and this deliscous black bean quasadilla too
Because I was feeling rather down in the dumps all week, my family thought it acceptable to fatten me up with ice-cream. I’m addicted and if you ever come visit we are going on many dates. My mom loves froyo but quite frankly nothing beats some good ole cake batter ice cream.
another time here...
I have also been putting my magic bullet to good use and making blueberry smoothies a lot. Nom nom nom.
My dad asked when I took this photo what the hell I was doing. I asked him what...you didn't do this in your youth.
You know of course, my day wouldn’t be complete without some good ole pancakes and waffles.
dark chocolate cherry pancakes
Strawberry waffle...we have a plethera of strawberries in these parts...
- peanut flour pancakes
Well anywho. I am alive and well and I hope you guys are too.
Question for you:
Tell something fantastic that has happened to you that you have been dying to tell me about. (I guess that is more of a statement but I’m over it).
