Week in review.

So, today marks the one-week anniversary of being a born-again blogger. It was a pretty good one overall, I guess.

We had a big event for work on Wednesday, which went pretty well. Most of the beginning part of the week was all about that, and the rest of the week was all about getting ready for the other million events we have coming up in the fall. Fall is crazy.

Robert and I had a fabulous weekend. Friday was great - we had dinner at Arepa City Latin Eatery in Harrisburg, just down the street from our apartment. It. Was. Delicious. I had an arepa (which is like a sandwich on a corn bun - think flat, round cornbread with less butter) with the most delectable roast pork and avocado. Fabulous. We came home and finished up season 1 of "United States of Tara," which is amazing and everyone should watch it.

On Saturday I made apple-pecan pancakes because I am obsessed with cooking food. I can't stop. We went to see Little Red Riding Hood at Popcorn Hat Players, which was one of my fave shows ever when I was a PHP-er. Then I got my hair cut and colored, which was really fun but HOLY CRAP getting your hair professionally colored is expensive. But worth it, I guess. I was really REALLY bored with my hair. I grew it super super long for the wedding, but I really needed a change. So, Matt (my hairstylist and one of my favorite people ever born WHO by the way is styling hair for THIS TV SHOW WITH CLINTON KELLY - I hope they get married) cut it to my shoulders and made it super cute. I will post a photo sometime... maybe later after I shower.

We hung out with some friends last night, played Clue DVD and watched Saturday Night Live. Good times. Made some breakfast this morning for Jeremy and Bri, and now I'm wasting time like I love to do. I plan to clean our bedroom, which is an absolute wreck, while Robert does his lesson plans.

Soooo, it was a good week. Looking forward to another good one.

My cat is annoying.

I could sleep in a little bit this morning, but I had some trouble on account of my cat being super annoying.

Picking up where Xanga left off.

I used to blog a lot, but I stopped. I got super bored with it, Xanga got really stupid and... well, I guess that's it. And now I feel like blogging again. Not sure why, not sure if anyone will read this, but I guess I'll just go with it, and, well, blog.

I had a great weekend with my in-laws, saw an old and fabulous friend, made some carrot-and-ginger soup and slept a lot. Exactly what I needed. On the way back to Harrisburg, we stopped at Tait Farms, where I have literally wanted to stop every single time I have driven past it and never have. Today I did. Robert stayed in the car and worked on school stuff and I wandered around the rows of fresh produce and pumpkins, and the last tomatoes and sweet corn of the summer. I bought a pint of honeycrisp apples (the BEST apples ever), some sweet corn, fresh spring mix, and some butter pecan pancake mix.

It's really strange how much these things excite me. I have always loved to cook and have loved food, but I have a real passion for cooking and creating fresh, delicious meals. Maybe I'm nesting, I don't know... but when we got home tonight I spent two hours in the kitchen making food for the week: the aforementioned soup, fresh guacamole and salsa... and it was a blast. Anyway... just get ready for a bunch of yapping about cooking. And a bunch of ellipses too, I don't know what that's about.
