Long time no see

Hello! If you're a commoner around this blog, you're probably wondering, "What is taking her so long?!" Well, if you must know, I've been busy. Between getting more hours at work, spending time with the love of my life, being admitted to the hospital (again), learning how to eat healthier, and attempting to sew my first article of clothing, time just slipped through my fingers. I know, I know, I should have planned the get sick next month, right? Good news is I'm a lot better now thanks to antibiotics, but I'm not quite back to my "normal" state. Gettin' there though...

Anywho, Thomas came to visit this past weekend, and I enjoyed every minute I spent with him. On Saturday evening, we went out on a date. We went to Footworks and got him some new running shoes; then, we ate dinner at Panera (yum), and we watched "21 Jump Street." Afterward, we spent a few minutes at It Sugar buying candy. It was my first time in there, and I seriously felt like a little kid. I finally understood the saying, "I'm like a kid in a candy store." There were so many delicious treats that I just couldn't make up my mind, so I got a little bit of everything I like (mostly Jelly Belly and chocolate malt balls). While we were there, we could not help but notice the biggest gummy bear we'd ever seen. It weighed at least twenty pounds! Here are a few pics.

I could barely carry it from how heavy it was!
The next day, we all went to Islamorada Fish Company for a late lunch/early dinner, and the food was amazing, but the scenery was what sold me. It was such a beautiful day! The weather was great; there was even a stork trying to give away a baby to some couple. He kept himself propped on the rooftop, looking for the new parents-to-be.

Thomas' seven layer chocolate cake.

My key lime pie...sooooo goooood!

At this point, the stork had already given away the baby. :)

Well, that's all for now, folks. I've got a few baking adventures coming next week, so stay tuned!
