Where the hell have I been?

No seriously, if you know, please raise your hands, because it seems like days and weeks have gone by with me standing here going “wait, what?”

I’ve been super busy, once again. I figured I should probably fix up the spare room in my apartment given that I’d nailed up a bunch of wood and left the cardboard tile ceiling a little on the saggy side. I shanghied a handy pair of friends into helping me last weekend and then tagged along on their trip to the Junction Arts Festival for honey-and-lavender ice cream, random fridge art and copious amounts of bureks and perogies. Every Saturday I’ve been at May’s for knitting and pie (one hideous cardigan finished, one super cute hoodie about halfway there!), there’s been a trip to Niagara for Talea’s wedding plans, dinners with family and a ton of baking for corporate client events. Oh yeah, and I’ve got a boyfriend to spend with too! Josh has been busy building an extra room onto his brothers house with him (today: stairs) so I try to line up my free time with his as often as I can. I haven’t even had time to do grocery shopping – and I do my groceries online! It’s been sad amounts of takeout this past week for me.

There’s been zero time for blogging, or even time for structured thought on anything I’d like to blog about. So what do I do when I don’t have time to type? I post pictures. Much, much less time consuming.

Since I haven’t had time for groceries, I thought it would be good to remind myself that yes, at times, I have consumed real food. In that spirit, here are some pictures of me eating whilst on my not-so-recent vacation – have I mentioned I’m already in dire need of another? Also included are pictures of me about to eat, having just eaten, or generally in the midst of an eating type environment. You can’t visit the south without taking a bite, and Josh and I do love our delicious meal times.

Mmm, breakfast! With a side of white trash bra.

Edamame! I don't think Josh had seen them before. I have two kinds in my freezer.

We rode from dinner to the movies - even though it was in the same plaza.

    You are so photogenic! Even stuffing food in your mouth, LOL. I’m glad your absence has been filled with good things! Sometimes it’s nice to be so busy that we lose track of time.

    It is good to be busy! At least most times – other times I wish there were more hours in the day!

    Aw I kind of love this. I am ALL about food and eating. 😉 And can I just say, you are SO pretty. Your hair is all sorts of awesome too.

    Aw, thanks! 😀

    I have catching up to do. You and your man need to mail Xmas cards and get them done at Kmart. Seriously. You guys make cute couple. That’s not a very dude thing to say, actually.

    Have you seen ‘’? I’d love to pose for a super trashy photo in front of Walmart and use that for the cards. My poor family would have successive heart attacks. 😛 And I won’t hold your brief lapse out of dude-ness against you, we sometimes have that mushy effect on people 😉

    When I get to live with Josh, I’m pretty sure he’ll insist on white trash bra all day long. 😛

    birdpress: Why thank you, I always felt my sexiest whilst eating. (yeah i know you weren’t talking about me, let me have my moment of glow before bursting my bubble)

    Urbanvox: French toasts = crepes. Just go with the flow. The next picture is french toast.

    Will: I want to make some Merry XXX-mas cards, but I have this feeling she’s not going to agree easily.

    Hey baby 😉 We can make Merry XXX-mas cards, I just won’t send them to anyone! 😛

    Asian Butterfly: Thank you very much. We (NC men) are a rare and amazingly sexy breed of men. And it is our blessing and curse that we attract an even more rare breed of sexy women far outside our league. But it is our cross to bear, and as far as burdens go, dating super hot chicks is a pretty nice one!

    Ah Em, I’ve missed you, and I totally relate to the “wait, what?” feeling!

    By the way, you looked like a hot-ass bitch on Josh’s ride, and umm…a side of trailer-trash bra???!?!?!….lmao…

    keep it real sister, so much to do so little time! 🙂

    I kind of heart Josh’s scooter, especially with the antlers! And I feel like I haven’t seen you in forever! We must do coffee or gather at May’s again soon! ^_^
