Can’t post, won’t post.

I cant post tonight because I was out late night shopping and eating delicious Thai food with two special friends and I ran out of time! I love it when my real life gets in the way of my online life, instead of the other way around!

Summer meal planning.

Would you, could you, eat a donut burger?

A week or so ago I left a comment on one of my must-read blogs A Cajun Down Under. I love Christy’s blog and have followed her recent adventures back home to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and salivated over her diary of some of the food she enjoyed, aptly titled Cajun P0rn! My comment was a […]


This week I have been a domestic goddess. I woke up on Monday morning after a Sunday afternoon adventure (blog post about that coming tomorrow… stay tuned, its a goodie!) and I decided that I need to cut out the crap from my diet. I have been at bootcamp since the beginning of the year […]
