ABC, 123

I’m a little slow on the uptake and realized that I was tagged by Rach to complete this lovely little alphabetic survey.  So here we go!

A- Attached or Single? Attached!
B- Best Friend? I am lucky to have more than one BFF.
C- Cake or Pie? Cake for sure
D- Day of Choice? Saturday without a doubt
E- Essential Item? I would say cell phone.

H- Hometown? Floral Park, NY

J- January or July? July!  It’s my birth month and anniversary month!  Plus in July, my fulltime job becomes beach bum.

R- Reason to smile? So many, my life is pretty good…I have a lot to be thankful for
S- Season of choice? Summer because I don’t have to work
T- Tag three people? I feel like almost everyone I know in the blog world has done this or been tagged… so no, I will not tag.
U- Unknown fact about me? In my senior year of high school I competed as a “Future Business Leader of America” and was named the number 1 typist in New York State.  I won a trip to Flordia to compete at the national level and came in 10th.   It was pretty sweet.
V- Vegetable? I never met a veggie I didn’t like.
W- Worst Habit? Procrastinating and being late (I guess they’re related)

How fierce is your cupcake?

Make it fierce!

NFR: Vote for ME!

I’m hopping on the bandwagon since many of my July 2007 Knottie friends have already done so.  The knot is having  a contest for the best of 2007 weddings.  I am entering, of course because my wedding was the bomb diggity ;), but also because my photographers were so awesome and took SUCH amazing shots.  I wasn’t able to upload all of them, but I tried to represent my wedding as best I could.  Here’s the link, don’t be shy…

Thanks readers!!

NFR: Billy Joel

I am so excited and I just can’t hide it!  I just got tickets to the Billy Joel concert at Shea Stadium (where my fave Mets play) on my BIRTHDAY!  Woo Hoo.  They were uber expensive, which gives me anxiety, but I can’t wait! 

Vent Complete.

Two birds, one stone…

So I was double-tagged.  I am going to completely cheat and do them both in one post.  How’s that for multi-tasking?  Two lovely ladies, CB and April.  I feel as if everyone who is part of my blogging life has been tagged as of late, so I’m going to be a loser and not tag anyone else…come on, who likes double-dipping anyway?  So here you go:

1 – Any mention of veins or eyes makes me absolutely queasy.  I cannot tolerate havig blood taken…I usually pass out.

2 – I have 2 tattoos.  Strange I know considering numero uno, but if the needle is not actually penetrating, I don’t have such a problem.  Plus, ink is cool.

3 – My husband is from Brasil.  We visited the motherland 3 years ago.  It is a beautiful place.

4 – I live around the block from my mom.  I like it.

5 – I could watch the Food Network for hours and never get tired of it. 

6 – I broke my right foot when I was 11 because I was “playing step aerobics” on the couch.

7 – I used to get excited when I would stay home from school because I was sick so I could watch the Price is Right and Martha Stewart (see?  born to entertain!)

Menu – 1/13 – 1/18

Sunday – Dinner at Mom’s

Monday – Baked Ziti

Tuesday – Parmesean-crusted chicken, steamed new potatoes, string beans

Wednesday – Orange-glazed salmon, steamed snow peas, rice

Thursday – Chicken Parmigana, pasta

Woo Hoo – Shopping Spree!

Last Christmas, my mom gave me a giftcard to Loaves and Fishes Cookshop (you may know it from the many trips Barefoot Contessa herself makes there on her Food Network show… although the one I go to is not “THE” loves and fishes). I discovered that my card had expired, but since I had a whopping $91.00 left on it, the kind people at L&F decided to extend me the courtesy of using the balance today only. Oh pitty, I guess I had to spend a lot on cooking and baking stuff. Here’s my booty:

  • A ceramic pie plate
  • a tart pan
  • one of those fancy skimmers all the food network people take the pasta out of the pot with… aka a skimmer
  • a new can opener
  • a pastry bag set
  • a pastry blender
  • a bottle of mineral oil to clean my cutting board and teak salad set
  • some linzer tart cutters
