Thursday Morning (with an insight to my crazy life!)

Ok, so I'm pretty sure that its safe to say that I've been M.I.A. lately, but that's not my fault! Swear! ..Ok, it is, but I promise that I haven't forgotten about this little project of mine. Its just that I've been busy, and that part really is a true statement!

A few things you may not have known about my crazy life:
-I'm engaged to an amazing man. :)
-This man happens to have 3 equally amazing children.
-I work for the Government, specifically the county elections division.
-Since I don't want to be there forever, I'm also a full time student, and up until about 2 months ago had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.
-Did I mention that I've been in school for the past 2 and a half years??

There's so much going on in my life, and that's the reason why I started this blog up in the first place. There's some pretty good stories to hear, and lots of crazy antics! In short, I'm going to do better about posting, and there will always be something good to read!

My First Daring Baker's Challenge: Nanaimo Bars!

The January 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Lauren of Celiac Teen. Lauren chose Gluten-Free Graham Wafers and Nanaimo Bars as the challenge for the month. The sources she based her recipe on are 101 Cookbooks and

I was very excited to do this month's challenge as my entire family on my Dad's side is from Canada, and this is supposed to be a true Canadian dessert.

I was a little disappointed with the way that mine came out, but it may be because I used the weight watchers version instead of the one that Lauren gave. I will be posting pictures later, I stole the one above for now! :)

Better Late Than Never, Right?

To say that I have been busy for the last few weeks would be a very large understatement. I don't think I have ever been so worn out in my entire life! So, that being said, I did not get the chance to upload pictures of my amazing dinner that I mentioned, especially since I couldn't even find the camera cord to get it hooked up with the computer anyway. Ah, my life is so blissfully unorganized.

Anyway, it's been about 4 weeks since we brought little Bella into our lives and unfortunately, 4 weeks hasn't seemed to have any effect on her resolve to "have fun" on every surface of my brand new home (for lack of a better term!). I don't know what we are going to do about her! I love her to death and she's just a sweetie, but I can't take mopping my floor twice a day EVERY SINGLE DAY. I'm definitely not a woman destined for extreme housework, that's for sure. I've been thinking about taking her to the PetsMart puppy training class, but I have no idea if they even address the issue of potty training. I guess I will make a call and see.

Hopefully things will slow down very soon so that I can catch up on my crazy long to-do list and get back to some fun things. I will be posting my very first Daring Bakers Challenge, so look forward to that!
