heading home =)

So we're heading back to the Nasti Nati for the weekend. Jason is more excited than I am, it's a really long drive to just be there for 36 hours. I do get to see my mom (and hopefully my sister) and all my friends from church, so it won't be a total waste. Before we leave tomorrow, I want to use up some of the fresh produce I have in the fridge so I'm making veggie risotto for dinner tonight and I can't wait!

We had to take Buster to the vet today and they're going to keep him for a while. They are taking an x-ray and a urine sample because his belly is tender and we don't know why. I hope they call soon with good news! I'll keep everyone posted!

Trying new things

So tonight I went to my 1st aerobics class EVER and I learned the following:
1. I'm not as out of shape as I thought, I made it through the whole class w/o passing out!
2. I could never be a dancer! Those steps were so confusing!
3. I shouldn't have waited this long to go to my 1st class. I didn't feel judged like I expected to.
4. I can't wait to go again! (this one may change when I can't get out of bed in the morning!)

Thank you so much to Ashley for inviting me to come along, I'm so glad I did! I can't wait for the "aerobathon" on Saturday! I get to try all the other classes for 15 minutes to see if I like them and want to take the whole hour long class (plus we get food and a t-shirt!)

I decided to dive into this blog thing head first and participate in a SCARF SWAP with some fellow bloggers! I feel bad for whoever gets my name b/c they have very few post to use to "get to know me"...maybe I'll make it easier on them and post a question/answer post later this week. Then again, maybe I'll just leave it up to the scarf Gods and see what I get! It's not too late to participate, just click on the link above before Wednesday!

Yummy muffins

So part of my motivation behind starting a blog is all the awesome bloggers that I read. I tried a recipe today for banana cinnamon chip muffins that I saw on a food blogger's site. I've been thinking about them for a few weeks now, but I had to wait for my mom to send me the cinnamon chips because they apparently don't sell them around here(THANKS MOM). They were definitely worth the wait! They were so easy to make and taste better than I had anticipated!

Here goes nothing...

I'm not a good writer. Never have been and probably never will be, but I'm going to try really hard to improve as time goes on. For now, bare with me and don't judge...I warned you! I'll do my best to keep those of you who are reading informed on what Jason and I are up to and probably do a little ranting and raving in between. I'll share some of the delicious recipes I try as I develop my inner Suzi Homemaker. I'll probably post a picture or two...or hundreds and maybe every now and then I'll even get Jason to post, but don't hold your breath for that one!

For now, I'm off to make these =)
