Happy Hump day!!

Well, Today is my last day of fall break.. *tears swelling*
It's been fun.. but I must admit that I am super anxious to find out what I made on that History midterm.. I'm really praying that I passed it.. The last two chapters we studied were quite difficult and just had too many random events to remember. Guess we'll see tomorrow morning xcrosses fingersx
Onto other things! I got to try a fried Oreo at the state fair... mmm. .. and I'm totally craving one now! It was surprisingly delicious.. (and probably deadly lol)
I'll post about it with a picture or two soon.

Hmmm... Other than that! Any great ideas on something fun to do this weekend? I have run out of creativity in that department and my weekends are getting to be monotonous.

My Pastry Adventure :)

I finally got a little time to do something before midterms start and fall break.. etc.. I was online the other day at work and saw some icelandic pastries.. My grandma is Icelandic so the pictures inspired me to try something new..
I saw how they worked with the pastry and made it absolutely beautiful.. Here is what I ended up with :)
Sugar dusted butterfly with plum in the center. *flutters*
My favorite of the bunch... apricot and pear w/ cinnamon sprinkles
Plum and apricot... this one was tasty! The one that has the star in the center is the one I made for my grandmother.. she said they would call it a braid... Definitely love it :)

Fresh and flaky from the oven.... YuM

Some close-ups..
The plain looking pastry on the right was filled with chocolate hazelnut filling.... Heavenly.. it reminded me of kindergarten in Germany.
My lovely fruit and spice filled cups... :)
Alright enough for now!
Ciao :)

Happy Hump day!!

Ugh! I'm ready for the weekend..
Here's what's new right now..

  • I'm bored at work (the usual).. Looking at Halloween costumes online. I honestly doubt I'll even dress up this year.. I did, however, decorate the front door to my house :)
  • I'm frustrated about us trying to get a house.. I feel like we have to do it quickly or someone will steal the house we like.. (and prices will keep rising.. etc..) then we wont be able to afford one.
  • I envy pregnant women. I don't really think now is the best time for a baby...BUT that doesn't mean that I don't want one! ,,, In fact, I really want to start a family.. I guess I'll just continue to wait it out.. :0(
  • I went shopping on Sunday and bought lots of fun stuff to bake with!!!!! :) But, I have been non-stop busy and haven't had a chance to start on anything.. HOPEFULLY, this evening I can get to some baking therapy.
  • I hate my car. If it weren't for the fact we are trying to get a house.. I would totally look into getting something "newer".. But used and easy to pay off (NO crazy payments please!).. Hmmm.. I would also LOVE to look into a washer and dryer.. I absolutely dislike having to go out to do laudry and search for quarters.. I just wanna be able to do my laundry any time I feel like it and in my own home.. Oh how I look forward to the day we have our own set!!!!!!!

Well, I think that's all for now!

Hmm.. Booted from foodie blogroll..

Wow.. Just got on to check out some of the food pages I usually look at,, and BAM ... I've been foodie "jousted" from the blogroll.. W.T.F?
I guess I haven't posted 80% food blogs... or I haven't been on everyday.. But that doesn't mean I don't have a passion for food. Oh well I guess..
I'll just continue on.. blogging about my LIFE and food.. (without the blogroll)
