Well, it turns out that I am not a very faithful blogger! I just haven't had much to say this week. It has been a fairly boring week, which honestly, I should be grateful for. I'm glad that it is Friday, and I have a whole list of things I want to do this weekend. I am going to FINALLY do my spring cleaning, and work on the closets. No more excuses! I have got to get rid of stuff before our apartment starts busting at the seams!! So, I will hopefully have a good report on Monday!!

Why can't I bake?!

I don't know what my problem is. I can cook, and seem to be getting better everyday, but when it comes to baking, I JUST DON'T GET IT!!! Yesterday, I decided that I was going to try to be a good wife, and make sugar cookies from scratch for my hubby. (one of his faves) Not so difficult, right?! WRONG!! It was a disaster!! They just melted together while they were in the oven, and turned into one big, flat cookie. It was ridiculous! And the sad thing is, something goes wrong every time I try to bake. I guess it is a good thing that I am not big on sweets, because I would be in big trouble!

By the way, I STILL didn't get to those closets! (maybe next weekend...)

This has been such a long week!! I don't really know why, it was no different than any other week, but my lord, I thought it would never end. Somehow, my hubby and I have managed to have something to do every evening this week, which means that I haven't cooked once all week. Maybe that is the problem. Cooking is my stress relief. I love to cook, and am usually quite relaxed when I am in the kitchen.

We took both of our boy cats to get fixed today. They have gone crazy in my house this week, and I just couldn't stand it anymore. There is definitely a reason you shouldn't have 3 cats in an apartment. Let's just hope this stops the peeing problem. If not, I know two young men who are going to be packing their bags!!

So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can actually make time to clean out closets this weekend. They are out of control. I've been saying this for almost a month, but I really mean it this time. I'll update on Monday!!

My very first blog!

Well, I am very new to this, but I am looking forward to having an outlet for all of my randomness (and believe me, there is plenty!). As I said before, I am a newlywed. My husband and I got married October 27, 2007 in an absolutely perfect wedding. It was by far the most awesome day of my life. I'm always looking for new things to do and try, and I'm hoping that blogging will be one of those things. (I sometimes get really excited, then let things die down, but my goal is to keep this blog current.) My main purpose for blogging is to share recipes. I would love, love, love to hear about the things that other people cook. I love to cook, but I don't like fancy, complicated things. So feel free to share!!
