Hiatus until further notice / Stylish Blog Award

Hi all,

I'm so sad that I haven't been able to update lately. I've been so busy with school. Homework is piling up and I'm already behind! :( This Respiratory Care program is kicking my butt and I've just started! Anyway, I'm not going to be updating for awhile. I hope to be back soon!

Special thanks to My-My for being such a sweetheart and awarding me with the Stylish Blog Award! Please follow her, she's GREAT! & her reviews are so helpful!

When I come back, I promise to redo this post and post up my 7 favorite blogs that I follow and also 7 interesting things about me.

So I went ahead and tried this recipe! My first time attempting to cook anything... so it wasn't perfect. It was good though! I think next time I'm gonna use less noodles and more parsley. I didn't use the full 3/4 cup.

Hello my loves! Happy New Year to all!!!! I can't believe it's already 2011! 1-1-11 is almost over already wow! My new years resolution is to be a happy and healthy person. I think I'm gonna try to be a little more nicer to people... I'm kind of a big meanie. But we'll see. Ha Ha. I also thought about actually printing out the pictures I take and start scrapbooking again instead of just uploading my pictures to my laptop! I hope everyone celebrated NYE safely as well! <3 <3 <3
