Its been almost a month...Seriously?!

Ok, I think it is fair to say that we have established the fact that I am a terrible blogger. I have good intentions, but that is about as far as it goes. On top of that, my camera has had an attitude lately, so I can't even post some of the pictures I would like to post. First of all, I would like to tell you all about a blog swap that I participated in recently. I found about the blogswap from the blog The Pink Potpourri. She matched me with Brandi, and it was AWESOME!! She was a great "swap buddy"!! I have a picture, but since my camera is holding it hostage, I'll just have to tell you what she sent. I got the cutest little fall cookie cutters, which I already have several ideas for, Sour Patch Kids (yum!), an apple coaster from the Apple Barn, some cute post-its, some of my favorite lotion from Victoria's Secret, a turtle trinket box, a mix for Key Lime Cheeseball, which I can't wait to try, and 2 of her own recipes. I feel like I'm forgetting something, but my stuff is at home, and well, I am not. :) It was SO much fun to get a package in the mail. (Brandi, if I left anything out, I apologize!!)

Now, on to my latest "crisis". Ok, so it really isn't a crisis, but that is the best I can come up with! I have been in a cooking "funk" lately. I definitely haven't been cooking as much lately for some reason, and when I do, it never turns out very well. I don't really know what the problem is, but I would love to hear from other people about what they do to get out of their cooking funk. Since fall is here, and it is my favorite time of year, I love to cook foods that make my whole house smell wonderful. I need to "revive" my cooking skills!!

We are also quickly approaching our 1 year anniversary. I cannot believe that it has been a year! I am taking a week of vacation the last week in October, and we are going to Pennyrile State Park for a few days of R&R. That is possibly my husbands favorite place on earth, so I'm excited to go there for our anniversary. Well, I think I am basically caught up for now. Hopefully I will get better at this soon!!
