I went to bed at around 10:45 last night. Then, I woke up at 12:30 this morning. I'm still awake. I'm going to pay for this come 1pm.

Yeah...so, I need to reset my 30 days without drinking soda. I was at the Relay for Life: American Cancer Society event today and I had to have a cold Coca-Cola to fuel my energy. The cold Pepsi was to go with my pizza.

I Heart Water

I'm attempting to go thirty days without drinking soda. So far, I've been doing amazing! I haven't had a drop of soda in 10 hours. I also just woke up about 5 minutes ago from six hours of sleep.

When I asked the hubby if he thought I could last a month without the bubbly beverage, he replied, "Not without a lot of complaining." I think I'll be ok with that.

America's Next Top Chef

I had a top-chef moment on Thursday. Lately, my pantry has been in desperate need of restocking and my refrigerator emits lonely cricket sounds when opened. Come mealtime, my selection is very limited. Not wanting to eat a warm bowl of malt-o-meal on a very hot summer day, I was desperately in search of an alternative. I remembered the mushrooms that I just picked up because they were on sale and I cooked them with a little butter. I had some chicken adobo sauce (sans any chicken) in the fridge and added it to the mix. Yes, I'm ghetto like that and save the chicken adobo sauce to eat with rice the next day. It reminds me of the chicken adobo dinner we had the night before. It also reminds me that we are pretty broke and that I have to resort to such desperate measures. Anywho, I cooked up a pot of white rice and voila! instant gourmet. It was delish and I shared it my 3-year-old who hates mushrooms. I tried to sneak a small piece within her rice but she immediately spotted it and it was ejected with the quickness. She is my daughter and has yet to find out that she actually loves mushrooms. I didn't find out myself until 5 years ago when Uncle David taught me how to cook them.

I realize that to a spectator, my little concoction might not seem so top-chefy. I suppose the more top-chef thing to do would be to serve the mushroom creation on a beautifully plated serving of malt-o-meal. But that would just be narsty.

Happy Birthday, Alicia

My Sexy Skissors

I just got it this week and I'm in lust with it. It's light-weight & serrated. The serrated-ness is what's making me so crazy about it. I've never felt so passionate about a scissors before. I get excited when I come across something that needs cutting for my scrapbooking or card making needs. I keep thinking about my skissors...hence, the name of my new blog. It was either that or "Breastmilk". That's also been on my mind.
