An update since the last is over 5 years old.
- Knowledge truly is power. I’m grateful to those who share what fills their brain in an effort to make the world a better place.
- I’d be no where with out P!nk, my yoga practice, podcasts (Reply All is my favorite), #theroolife, this chocolate bar, and wine.
- I try to do something every year I don’t think I can actually accomplish. This year I gave up chips. It is arguably one of the worst decisions of my life.
- My life is complete with my boys, Michael and Skydoo. There is little in life they can’t make better and I get to marry the less furry one in less than 6 months.
- I could watch makeup tutorials all day.
- Last year I read all the Harry Potter books and cannot wait to read them to my children someday.
- I seriously cannot wait to eat chips and salsa again.
- My life changed drastically, for the better, after reading this quote. “How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” Thank you Wayne Dyer.
- Life also improved drastically when I decided to try just about anything, at least once.
- If salmon is on the menu, I’ll probably order it.
Me? Ok… you asked for it.
- I am on Trophy’s website way too much for not living anywhere near Seattle.
- Outside of food, if I can’t get it at Target (a.k.a heaven on earth) I probably don’t need it.
- I took band in high school to avoid art. I really wish I hadn’t.
- I use food as my secret weapon.
- Right now, I’m making my first ever batch of banana bread. (Who makes sushi before they make banana bread?)
- I try to eat in moderation. I try to work out. I try to cook healthy. I have good intentions. Sometimes bad is undeniably good.
- If one could make an Olympic event based on the awesome-ness (yes, I believe in “ness”) of their fabulous friends & family, I would be confident in taking gold.
- I judge people who don’t like ranch, peanut butter and cream cheese.
- I love comebacks, 90210, NKOTBSB, Bret Michaels and have you seen Jennifer Grey on DWTS? I could really go on forever here… but you get my point.
- I grew up in Texas. We visited New Orleans often as children.
What a silly rule.
As a 10-year-old, I yearned to remove the onions and peppers from the supreme pizza that sat before me. You can imagine my excitement when I was told we were eating these foreign, beignets for breakfast. I begged for another choice. Something. There had to be a croissant in New Orleans. Well, anyone who knows my Dad knows there wasn’t a chance on this earth for one of those option things. It was a rule, you had to try it once. I placed the unwanted pastry in my mouth with as much hesitation as I could get away with. I took a bite. And I loved it.
What a fantastic rule.
From that moment forward not only did I trust my father with my taste buds but, I looked forward to trying new food.
Thank you Dad.
