I'm slightly [read incredibly humiliated and sad] embarrassed that I have not updated this little blog in quite some time. Upon contemplating my given excuse as to why, I had to look up how to spell embarrassed. I was flabbergasted at the spelling. No wonder I always spell it embarresed [note: this is NOT how you spell said word. please don't take after me and decide to spell it wrong ALL the time]. Really, I need to take lessons in spelling, grammar and the like. It doesn't matter that I have a college degree as it obviously did not raise my english pedigree [no matter that i boast of a minor in english].

Not that you would know, but I just took a fifteen minute respite from writing to venture to the library for French tapes. Then I realized that I'm not living in the '90's, and they are in fact French cds. I'm not exactly the best at picking up languages at all, but I going to Paris in December! And guess who gets to learn a little bit of French before we go. I do. Because my siblings are lazy. 

My goal is to blog more often. Feel free to heckle me if I am not actually doing so.

I'll leave you with some of my baking accomplishments this summer.
