Living in Atlanta shouldn’t be as difficult as I’m experiencing. I don’t hardly get out enough. With all the food choices found in Class A resto’s lacing this southern city, you’d think I’d go out and have some. At least to meet people other than the 3 culprits I spend 80% of my life with (one married, one a wahoo of all things alcohol & the other brings his own syrup when we go to breakfast joints at midnight).
So exciting, I know.
Not so much. I was in bed last night, blogging for about 2 hours, and decided I really wanted to go to bed with a stomach ache. What better way to accomplish this, than to pull out a spoon (a really big spoon) and dig way deep into my Häagen-Dazs Green Tea ice cream. All the way to the bottom. At 2:30 in the morning.
I. am. not. a. glutton. for. pain.
1000 calories and 80 g of sugar later I’m feeling great! I find solace knowing this will not occur again until I get married and have kids. However, I must get outside now and run/walk 5 miles. Maybe 5.3.
COMMENTING: Thanks to those that leave comments. I really appreciate it. It lets me know you read and care about what I have to say. If I’ve not visited you in a while, holler at me. Literally. Call a girl out. For real.
AWARDS: I’ve been so consumed with trying to catch up on a whole lot that I forgot to mention some nice accolades dished by fellow bloggers.
Thanks to Margot of Coffee & Vanilla for making my “ARROZ CON LECHE” recipe and then awarding me with the “Yummy Food Blog”. But before that, she was so generous to think of me when rendering kudos for the “Arte y Pico” award. Thanks Margot, for your kindness and thoughtfulness!
And Nikki over at CanaryGirl was also too sweet in sending over the “I Love You This Much” award. I connect with her in a few ways so it’s cool to be recognized by her.
So I now pass on the kudos (wasn’t that a candy bar way back when?) to these blogs I really enjoy, especially when I can’t drum up energy to take pics and edit and write and fool around with html code and all that it takes to get a post up.
