Oooh… shiny

It's all new and stuff...

It’s all new and stuff…

I’ve moved up in the world, y’all. I got a deal on a domain name for a year and just went for it.

Update all your bookmarks so that they point to You’re welcome. 😛


In Closing…


Today’s prompt: As another Diabetes Blog Week draws to a close, let’s reflect on some of the great bloggers we’ve found this week. Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved during Diabetes Blog Week, and tell us why they’re worth reading. Or share three blogs you’ve found this week that are new to you.

Okay – you’d think that since I was on “vacation” I’d have all of this time to catch up on blog posts from the community. NOPE. I’m a terrible human being on the interwebz. However, when I received comments and pingbacks on my posts, I definitely checked out each respective blog in return. Here are some noteworthy ones to see.

The Blood Sugar Whisperer

Type 1 Fun

Type 1×3

Fifteen Wait Fifteen

Girl Glycosylated

I look forward to posts from them in the future. Thanks for following along this week. 🙂

It’s beginning to look a lot like Pinterest…

On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer, on Guinness... what?

On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer, on Guinness… what?

So I’ve really taken this Pinterest thing way too far today. My 6-packs of normal beer have been holiday’d to present as gifts. My mother in law told me that I’m in charge of desserts for Christmas Eve, so I started pinning stuff that I know I’ll never ever bring down to share. I even tried cleaning my bathroom with white vinegar and blue Dawn. (Which assaults your senses. My nose is very offended right now.)

I won’t knock it now that I’ve joined the masses of women who pin random ass remedies for sore throats, soap scum, and highly allergic children. But it’s seriously taken over my life. And I knew this would happen, which is why I avoided it and everyone’s Facebook overshares when it came out last year-ish. But too many people kept talking about how many fantastic things they were discovering in the deep crevasses of the interwebz. So I got curious. Because maybe I wanted to be more creative too.

Some things have been great: for example, this chicken recipe, this soup, these cookies, or whatever the heck this is.

Some… not so great. Like using vinegar (again!) to clean my make up brushes. Yeah – not so much. Or those flourless chocolate cookies that were really only made with powdered sugar and chocolate powder. (Chemistry 101 anyone?)

It’s also awkward when you start following your mom and she’s pinning holiday jello shot recipes. Ummmm…

I also use it to save stuff that I find on Etsy. In fact, I had my own Christmas List board because I was tired of answering the parents’ questions about lists and having them shop at stores they’ve never heard of. Here, I can just point them to a link online and have them click-add to an Amazon shopping cart. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I also like having more people to follow. So feel free to add/follow me. I like finding other PWDs with fun modifications to their recipes. So the more, the merrier.
Follow Me on Pinterest

Awww, I feel all warm and fuzzy…

After the day I had, it was nice to see this Pingbacked to me. Thanks rarasaur for the nod. She was one of my first followers. Since I’m new to the blogsphere, I’m guessing these are kind of like chain letters you used to get. (Answer these questions and then tag erry’body you know.)

Since I don’t follow many new bloggers yet, I won’t tag this on. But I’ll answer the questions. 🙂

1) What can you say about dreams?  They happen. I’m often caught in the middle of one as my mind wanders during the day, or while I drive. Mostly dreaming up new choreography for a song stuck on repeat.
) If the sky is not blue, what color would you like it to be? PURPLE
) What is your favorite work of art? Starry Night or a really sick piece of showcase choreography.


It’s another convention weekend, which means I’m high-tailing it to Chico for some fabulous west coast swing dancing, classes, and competitions. And it’s supposed to downpour all weekend long. At least I’ll be indoors for most of it.

And then it’ll officially be December and my showcase will be in 2 weeks. GAH!
