I have an appetite for instruction. I love to know where things come from, how they are made, the different techniques and the history behind it. Shoot, one of my favorite shows when I first moved over here was Unwrapped on the Food Network, and don't even get me started on the endless hours I spend watching cooking tutorials on YouTube.

It's been ages since I've updated my blog that I had to ask myself, 'are you still there?' And the answer is yes.
But just barely.
Sorry about that.
With the holidays around the corner and just a lot of every day stuff, it really beats you down and eats away at your day and by the end of the night, when the kids are in bed and the dishes are done, I have nothing left in the tank. But I'm going to change that, I swear! I may even have to start implementing my blogging challenge again.
So I looked around for something decent to share with you and found this - an article that I recently wrote for PJ Media's Lifestyle Section a while ago. When I started writing this I was researching like crazy on how to plan a trip to Disneyland with the two girl children. I found all the sites so very helpful, but I thought I'd throw in my two cents as well.

I'm always late to the party when it comes to food trends. First Chia seeds, now French Macarons. It seemed that for a while there every person and their dog posted pics of macarons. I know one girl who even changed her last name to 'Macaron' on her facebook profile, such is her love for them.

I ain't no spring chicken anymore, let me tell you. This morning, at about 6:30, I got up to go to the bathroom and the cracking of my ankle WOKE UP THE BABY. This has been going on for a while - when I move it's like a skeletal symphony going on underneath my skin. I'm not proud of it, but I have not been taking care of myself lately.
