It hasn't even been a year that my blog has been in existence and I already have 200 posts. So under a year, I have been busy writing and documenting my life. It's pretty cool.
Also, thanks to the wonderful people at Nutrisystem, I was given the chance to start a journey to a healthier me. It's slow going but I am slowly but surely losing weight. The most important thing is that I am learning to eat better and exercise more. Yay Nutrisystem and thanks so much for helping me out!!
In August, I went to my first blogger conference and had a ball and met some real cool ladies who I am still in contact with. Fall came and went and it was freaking amazing. It was a nice Fall and I miss it already.
I traveled here in NC and elsewhere. I had an amazing trip to Cancun with my sister. We also did local trips that were fun. Asheville, Dillsboro and we went to our first corn maze but I didn't get to see children with sickles who would kill you in a heartbeat like in the movie: Children of the Corn. Darn! A real high point came when I got the opportunity to play with an axe and pick and beat the crap out of Ghostface the pumpkin. *sigh, good times* I really liked playing with that axe.
A few months ago, my sister Yvonne aka Jackie (to me) did something really cool. She was able to go to a filming of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. For those not familiar with this Food Network show, it is hosted by Guy Fieri. Guy goes out and find just that: diners, drive-ins and boy some dives in search of cool cuisine. It is a great show. Plus, I love, love, love Guy. I could watch him all day long. Even Tom likes watching Guy's shows which is amazing since he barely tolerates my extreme obsession with the all things Food Network! But if Guy is on, he will definitely watch. Who wouldn't?
Anyway, while at the shooting of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives my sister met Guy. I am soooo super duper jealous! I would give anything to meet Guy!! But Jackie was so nice as to get him to sign a cookbook just for me. He personalized it and everything!! Woo-Hoo! And because my sister so rocks the house, she also got him to sign an extra book for me to giveaway on my blogs. And here it is for you to see. Isn't my sister the coolest? Thanks Jackie!!
So as a thank you to my loyal followers and to celebrate 200 posts, I am doing a giveaway. You can win this autographed copy of Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It's really easy to enter. Just follow the rules and comment!!
