I've created & kept this blog to compile the thoughts, dreams and wisdom that I've discovered from others or merely written myself. This blog is, in a sense, an expression of everything that is me.. Whether I wrote it or not. The most recent entries are a series of quotes, lyrics and videos.. But travel back through the archives and you'll delve deep into my heart, through my own words.

To those who I've quoted or borrowed from: Thank you for being beautiful.. for deeply inspiring me in one way or another. I hope you find that I've used your material in an appropriate fashion.. I try always to cite my sources. I take NO credit for that which is not my own.

B-day Highlights..

As usual, our "family get-together" proved to be quite eventful.. Never a dull moment with this bunch! A day full of sarcastic quips, sibling angst, puppy chaos and delicious food, mom's birthday dinner was, surprisingly, successful. Happy Birthday, mom!

Graceon got to meet Khia, his new cousin. Needless to say, he's a spoiled little brat, so he wasn't too friendly toward her at first... It took about an hour of snarling, growling and snapping for him to realize that she was legit. After that, they were two crazy bud's, chasing each other around and rough-housing for the rest of the day/night. Try cooking in a kitchen with two psycho dogs tearing after on another.. It's a workout!!

Insert flying saliva from Graceon's mouth, along with slow-motion sound effects ("Ohhhh.. Noooo.."), and it's almost like watching an instant replay hit in NFL, is it not?! Replace fooball players with puppy dogs, and I'm sold on it.

I've been doing a lot of online recipe hunting lately. I found all kinds of awesome dessert recipes, including many for cakes and cupcakes. After a lot of hard searching, I decided to try to create a cupcake bouquet. I thought it was a cute idea. Dre decided to coin the term "Grandma Carissa", and so I've been labeled. Either way, I'm not knitting, and it turned out really well. I considered this to be an experimental run, and I think it was a success! I want to keep baking and practicing with frosting tips.. I'm always so fascinated by the neat things that people can create in/with icing.
