While Driving...

Today I drove from Oakland to Orange County to visit my family, friends and drop my car off down here so my Dad can try and sell it for me (Let me know if you're interested in an amazing Nissan 350Z). During my too long of a drive, I learned a few things that I wanted to share. So, with no further a due:

1.) Watching a blimp land is super cool. I watched the Good Year Blimp land and when it lands, there are people on the ground who grab these long strings attached to the from and help to pull it down. Can you imagine if everyone played a prank on one person and let go of the ropes?! See ya later sucker!!

2.) While I know that pesticides are bad for our fruits and veggies, I watched a crop dusting helicopter in action and almost ran off the road because it was so fun to watch! It does quick turn maneuvers to not miss a crop - it almost looks like a video game.

3.) Driving long distance brings out the race car driver within me. I raced with a yellow corvette, a black BMW and a huge truck- and won them all :) I had to stop to go to the bathroom (too much water) when I was racing the corvette and I ended up catching back up with him an hour or so later before the 5 merged onto whatever freeway it merges with. I was VERY proud!!

4.) When I drive, I think that I am a rockstar. I crank the music up as loud as I can stand and then I sing at the top of my lungs. And I personally don't think I sound that bad....but that is all relative I guess.

5.) While being a rockstar, I was reminded of how many song lyrics I sing wrong. Ask Michael about this one. I think that if I did kareoke I would have culture shock when I learn how many words I am singing wrong. But I am totally ok with this and I think it is an endearing quality :)

Anyways, I wanted to share these things for no particular reason. I am in Orange County for the next few days then I am going to venture down to San Diego to hang out with some friends! I am planning on being better at writing more get ready for some fun ones!!

xo and much love,

can't get cat is sitting on my lap and won't let me get up. Now, for those of you who know my cat, you probably know that ever since we got Delilah, she has gotten a mean streak. Well, as I sit here on the couch needing to get up to go to Target for some essentials, Elle is sitting on me and meowing and moaning every time I move just a bit. And this isn't a nice meow. It is a "try and move me and feel the wrath of my claws!!" kind of meow.

(can't you see the evil in her eyes?!)

So, here are my choices: A) remain here on the couch until she decides she is ready to move. This could be very soon or VERY long from now. B) Try and pick her up and move her and risk getting punctured by 10 inch long talons (maybe a slight exaggeration).

Right now, I am going with A, but my patience is wearing thin and my desire to go to Target is getting the best of me. I think I am going to try and move her- I hope I don't pass out from too much blood loss....

Yummy!! has been a while since my last post. What a slacker! I realize that I need brush up on my blogging more often! Sorry about that!

So, I wanted to share with you the yumminess that I baked yesterday. Well, before I describe it....just take a look:

OH SO YUMMY!! So, I found the recipe for this off of this new baking blog I am in love with ( and I knew I just had to make it. It is brownie mix with chocolate chip cookie mix in it. Heavenly. Then I frosted the top, since I am a frosting fanatic, and it is amazing! I have a feeling that this one won't last long here, if you know what I mean!

And on the note of sweets - I have decided that for Lent, I will be giving up all sweets. This is a hard one for met, as my day is not complete without something sweet and yummy. But, I am going to do it and do it well! And I am going to read more since I have not been doing that lately and I really love it.

So, I will keep you updated on how the sweets-less 40 days/nights go. Wish me luck!!
