Bad, Bad Blogger

I'm a bad blogger.

So...5 weeks to the day that my purse (along with cash, credit cards, social security card, palm pilot, etc) was taken in Miami, someone went into my office at work and stole my phone and the cash in my purse!
I hate Miami!!!
Anyway, please send me a message with your phone number as I have lost them all.

Halloweeners :)

I've been called out about being a slacker with blogging. Thanks Kristen! :)
So...I was wondering what I would blog about, then it happened....I got my first trick-or-treater ever!!! That's right....EVER! I grew up trick-or-treating in Indiana. We lived out in the middle of nowhere, so we would have to go to some neighborhood kinda far away to get our tricks...I mean treats. :) Then if we were ever around home when it was trick-or-treating time, no one ever came to our house since we didn't live near anyone. Anyway...long story short, every year I get candy hoping that I will be able to experience the knocking at the door and the yell of "Trick-Or-Treat" from silly little kids all dressed up cute and every year I never get the knock and end up eating all the candy.
Well...THIS year was different! I bought a bag of candy today...which was dangerous since I'm trying to diet. I came home with the intentions of putting spider webs out on the front porch so it would look inviting for all those silly little kids. Well, I got sleepy and decided to try to take a nap instead. Then I woke up and I figured it was too late to put up the web, cause it was already getting dark (and I didn't want to look too desperate) and because I was worried they would stay up until next year (like our Christmas tree has stayed up since last year). So later I heard kids outside, but again I didn't want to look desperate by running outside with all my candy, so I waited patiently and hoped they would knock on my well lit door. But no, they didn't. I was so sad that I thought it was going to be like every other year, then it happened!!! A little knock at the door sent me running to grab the candy and open the door...probably a little to eagerly. Then there was this cute little boy in bloody scrubs with his face all messed up yelling "Trick-or-Treat"! It was the cutest thing ever! I offered him my jar full of candy and he took one piece. I was like..."you can take more!" He said no thank you and left. I was excited about what had just happened, but I wondered if I should have commented on his costume or made small talk or forced him to take more candy, but then I realized I was thinking a little too much about it. :) It was great....then later a big group, then a couple more stragglers came by. Fun stuff. I love Halloween. :)

Sugar Cookies

I want a sugar cookie soooo bad. I went on the South Beach Diet a week and a half ago and I thought my cravings were supposed to be gone by now. I hadn't had any major cravings until now, but now I want a sugar cookie...and I didn't think I even liked sugar cookies! Grrrrrr.

Two Posts in One Day

I just wanted to update about dinner (the Greek Shrimp and Scallops with Feta). It was pretty tasty. Next time though, I'll use mussels instead of scallops. If you like seafood, you should definitely try this one.

While I'm blogging, I might as well give you another piece of the picture. :)

Day 2 Ramblings

Here we are at day 2 of me having a blog. Look at me, I post EVERYDAY. :) Ok, now I'm just being a dork.

Not much to say today. I made a yummy Chicken and Tomatillo Soup last night. I had never cooked with tomatillos before. I don't know what they would be like in other dishes, but in this soup they were great. Tonight I'm going to try a Greek Shrimp with Feta dish...but I'm adding bay scallops.

Well, I guess that's all I have. Here's another piece of the picture. :)

New to blogging

So...this is my first blog and I'm not really sure what I'm doing. I don't know what my goal is on keep family and friends updated on my life, to journal, to blab, or something more meaningful. Apparently right now it is to blab, but I guess I'll figure it out eventually.

I want to post a picture here on my first blog, but I also want to keep you coming you only get part of it, enjoy. :)
