Now You Know My ABC’s

I’m addicted…


I kid you not when I say that Cinnamon Chip Scones were probably one of the first three things that popped into my head this morning. (The other 2? “Why is Jay making so much noise right now…?” and “I really need to pee but I’m too lazy to get up.”) Winking smile


To go along with my scone, I enjoyed a black cherry Chobani, which somebody else apparently had his eye on…creeper alert!


And of course, I sipped on my coffee. Mmmmm. Smile


In case you’re wondering, we’ve been brewing Caramel Macchiato coffee from The Fresh Market these past few weeks. It’s probably one of my favorites, but a little pricier so we don’t but it too often.



Time to Learn Some ABCs!

Last week I was reading through Gabriela’s blog and absolutely loved her “Alphabet of Gabriela” post! Then yesterday, as I was getting ready to type up my own, I noticed that Julie had read my mind and posted her “ABC’s of PBF.” Great minds think alike! Winking smile

So now, I’m going to go ahead and do my own ABC’s, because really, who doesn’t like learning a little bit more about “the face behind the blog”?!?

    I hate moving the clothes from the washing machine to the dryer. I think it’s just a pain in the neck and the machines should learn how to do it themselves!

    My job title is Marketing Manager/ the President/Office Manager/Sales and Branding Consultant. You name it, I do it.

    I’m 5’8″, I think? I don’t even know the last time I checked, but I’m sure I haven’t grown in the past few years.

    What a fun post! I might put it on my blog soon.
