Busy : ( I have busy for a not so great reason! My Granddaddy has been in the hospital and is not doing well. While there is no place else I would rather be than sitting with him in the hospital I do miss running. I got in 10 miles Saturday morning because I was so stressed and sad but know I will not be able to run this week. I am going to try to run at night on the treadmill for a little bit. Anyone than runs knows you get antsy when you can not run and when I am under stress I am awful to be around if I have not been able to run. Friday night I was very emotional about loosing Granddaddy and I cried all night. So Saturday before I went to the hospital I ran my 10 miles and cried most of them but it helped so much! I just feel like I can deal with things better when I have an outlet for my stress. I am sure people were thinking "if it hurst so bad why is she running?" But I am not a crier and I needed somewhere to leave my tears : )
BUT spending time with my Granddaddy and watching Parker get kisses from his namesake is priceless and I will not run for weeks just to have more time with him.

If you could meet anyone living or dead who would it be and why?
I would love to meet my mom's dad. He passed away a few years before I was born and I hear a lot about him from my mom and her sisters. He just seems like a real neat guy. I have always been a little sad about that fact I did not know one of my grandparents.
Why did you start blogging and what did you expect when you started?
What is the one book you could read over and over again?
I have read "Flowers in the Attic" by V.C. Andrews at least 10 times since I read it for the first time in 5th grade; I think I was too young to read it then. Other than that I do not read books more than one time. I love to read and when I have the summers off (I teach) I ready no less than 20 books during the summer. When I was at the beach this summer I read a book everyday. Favorite authors and series include: James Patterson, Nicholas Spark, Patricia Cornwell, Mary Higgins Clark, Twilight series, Sookie Stackhouse series, Mitch Album and the Harry Potter series. I have also started reading "running" books such as Run Like a Mother.
If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
My bucket list of places to travel to is LONG! I want to see all 50 states and travel Europe before I die. BUT if you made me pick one place it would be Hawaii. I have in my head that Hawaii is going to be some magical island where I will be laying in the sun getting a golden tan, drinking fruity drinks, eating fresh fruit and swimming with sea turtles. Don't ruin my fantasy!
If you could have a TV show on the Food Network, what would it be?
What was the best meal you ever had?
I know I have walked away from a lot of places saying "That is the best meal I have ever had" but for some reason right now I am at a loss! Hands down good Mexican is always a BEST meal. I am lucky to have a great Mexican restaurant where we live. The one meal that sticks out in my head at this moment is an anniversary dinner at The Melting Pot. Not sure if the food was the great or just the night itself; or the ending the meal elbow deep in a bowl of melted chocolate.
Who has been the greatest influence on your love for food and learning to cook?
Learning to cook?? Well lets say I got my lack of cooking honest. My mom is a great cook and is capable of cooking anything in the world but we just don't like to do it. My love for food probably comes from my husband. When we met I was PICKY. If you think what I eat now is bad you would not believe how horrible I ate 10 years ago. Scott has done a great job of introducing me to new foods and encouraging me to try different foods.
