ahem, how do I use this thing?

Oh dear… I don’t even know where to begin! At least I wished you all a happy new year, right? :)

While I twiddle my thumbs late into the night staring at a blank blog post, trying to think of a witty story to tell you guys why I’ve been missing for so long… I… I can’t come up with one. Frankly, this 8-5 lifestyle I’ve been living has sucked the fun out of me. I miss those days of doing absolutely nothing and doing absolutely anything and everything I wanted to with my trusty sidekick in tow, of course! Sigh, those were the days…

Over the weekend, he made me promise that I continue blogging and well, here I am!! I have hundreds of photos and stories I want to share! Of course these stories go way back (like our friendship, hehe :). I’ve got pics from Thanksgiving, Christmas, weekend misadventures, Superbowl Sunday, Valentine’s Day, and tons and tons of foodie pics :D

I am still that same girl that makes her boyfriend stop eating midway just so I can snap that perfect pic :). Now he’ll actually shift things around for me so that I can get the perfect angle, that’s my dreamboat sweetheart!!

Before I spam you with a million photos, I have a confession to make. I have been practicing vegetarianism for the past few months. I am a veggietarian Monday through Friday. Why? Because I’m a health kick and who doesn’t want to live a healthier life? But don’t worry, I still indulge in my beloved bacon every now and then and I do eat meat occasionally, call me a social meat eater, and when I am with my carnivore loving boyfriend :).

Okay, onto the pictures!! The weekend was spent with his family and at one of their informal family gatherings/mini parties. The weekend before, his parents said they brought a trunk full of fish with them back from vacation and his dad said he was going to make fried fish. I had his fried fish before and it’s amazing! Let’s just say, I waited impatiently for this fish all week… :)

I will let the pictures do all the talking :D

fresh fish!!

Now, fish bones scare the bejeezus. I cannot eat a fish with it’s bones attached, I fear the horrible fate of choking to death. I remember once I ordered special fish of the day at this fancy restaurant in Berlin and the waitress came back with a whole fish on a platter. I was like “ermahgerd!” Oh memories lol :)

  1. Wow that’s amazing about the fish! I bet those were delicious. And amazing to see you on here! HEHEHEHEHE Good to see you darlin. I was a vegetarian for about five years so I understand the vegitarianism thing! It’s all good! I’ve been so busy I have completely abandoned some of my social networks too. It’s hard making a living, enjoying one on one time with your spouse and having time for other things! XOXO
