Wow. Has it really been two weeks?! Where has the time gone? I have been busy to say the least. If it wasn't for the daily text message reminders that I've been delinquent in my blog updates I think it would of been even longer. I'm not going to name names or anything, but you know who you are! Payback ahead in the most subtle form. I'm sure you're wondering what I've been up to that I was too busy to ramble about my upcoming vacation. Let's say it together, "MATT".
Last weekend was Matt's birthday weekend. I decided that I would bake for his party. Three dozen tasty cupcakes & a batch of even tastier brownies later & the last thing I want to see is baked goods...tasty or not! I also had to clean and decorate for the party. Oh, and get lost in Nanuet for an afternoon because of my OCD mother & a GPS that doesn't GPS. Then we went to the city on Saturday to continue the celebrating. I also had to cook for a family in our church who just had a baby. Oh, and did I mention, Matt practically moved in? Sorry guys, if we're talking typing up a blog or spending time with Matt, I'm going to go with Matt. Not to mention it would probably take me about 4 tries to get each sentence typed out in full with Matt around. It would be an all day event. I'm blessed to have Matt here so much but it definitely takes some adjusting. He's awesome. He takes out the garbage without even being asked. How lucky am I? However, at times the garbage doesn't make it all the way to the dumpster, sometimes it lands outside the front door. That's fine and really doesn't bother me at all, that is until I step out my front door in the morning to head for work and nearly have a heart attack when the squirrel who has broken into the garbage bag is freaking out trying to get itself OUT of the garbage bag & take out my ankle that is a foot away from it! Who needs coffee? That'll wake you up real quick. Nothing like the smell of trash scattered across the lawn in the morning. I've also never watched so much Yankee baseball in my life. I think I'm developing a twitch. Having him here really is great... just we gotta work on the squirrel sneak attacks. Enough about that, lets get onto the fun stuff. Our Disney World vacation is 48 days away!!
Last I posted I talked a little about Food and Wine Festival. Well, now I'm gonna talk a lot about F&WF... because I can. What is Food & Wine Festival? Well, it's a fatty's tasty dream come true! Take it away Disney...
