Best Snaxkie Ever!!

Hello Hello My Lovelies!

Can you believe I have a day off? Oh my goodness, well two, actually!! I was off today for some routine doctor visits and then had to hop over to the Municipal Court to pay a pesky ticket I got last weekend. Driving FAIL. I made it from 16 to 25 before I got speeding ticket ONE and now, I have two. One isn't on my record though so...sssshhhh!!

Back to having a day off, YES - tomorrow, I HAVE A DAY OFF! That is quite good considering I'm going into the most head-spinning, busy week of my year. So, tomorrow is filled with relaxation and who knows? I may actually take down the Christmas Tree. *hides and giggles* Ah, yes ... it's still Christmas in the Liz-Matt-Kosmo-Miller-Olive-Roxy residence. Year of Cheer, anyone? Ha!

I'll leave you with a photo of my new fave snaxkie!

Honeycrisp Apple (last of season, really trying to hang on while I can)
2 T Better n' Peanut Butter

I'll be back tomorrow, kiddos.

Over n' Out!

Thanks for reading!!

Question: What's your favorite afternoon snack that tends to really get you through until dinner time?

Need A Life Change

Happy New Year!!

....what? Am I late? Yes, I know - I know! I haven't been around and I'm sorry. Just when I had you all biting your nails all day for my next post, POOF, I disappear. Please accept this apology?

I come back tonight with no food descriptions or photos of food eaten lately. I come tonight missing my blog, missing my blog readers and missing the blogs I used to follow daily. I come tonight needing a change. You see, I'm NOT happy. I'm working like a dog (insert description of 68+ hour work week here) and I'm so worn out. I don't have time for the YOGA and running I want to begin again, I don't have time for my fellow foodies or to even indulge my own inner foodie. I'm not my best person right now. Not for me, not for anyone and it's starting to become evident. I guess you can say...I come back tonight in search of a soul cleanse and a catalyst to begin in a new direction that will take me back to being happy and feeling fulfilled.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not some pathetic, drained sap just moping around. That is NOT the case at all. I can just tell it's time for me to make a change and make some cuts and figure out what's really important for ME. I have to figure these things out, although I'm almost sure I know, and make some necessary compromises to achieve ultimate happy ME.

I ask for you to hang on and don't lose faith in me while I make the transition back to the fun, food and life loving ME you've known in the past. I'll be back. While I can't say I'll be able to post DAILY for a while ... maybe even WEEKLY is a more attainable goal. Just hang on with me. I am determined to make 2010 the best year yet, for myself, on a personal level. I'll be back to commenting on your blogs again soon as well.

I'm empowered and determined! WORLD... WATCH OUT!!!!!!!!
