Banana Bread

My mom is diabetic so we don't really use sugar in this house, we use more artificial stuff. While its not much healthier, it's better than why the sugar will do to a diabetic.

Mom made some very yummy and somewhat healthy banana bread. It's sooo good. I'm currently just eating the last piece now.

It was made with sweetener instead of sugar and light becel margarine instead of butter. Plus we had some very ripe bananas so she put more bananas in than the recipe called for. It made it very yummy!

The Irish Rovers - "The Drunk Scotsman" (Lyrics)

I was driving to my friends house for a nice night of board games, and I had my iPod on shuffle. Now you must understand that I get a bunch of music from just about everyone I know, and it all goes onto my external hard drive. Well recently I just put everything from the external hard drive onto my iPod and I don't even know half of what I have.

So as I was driving, I stumbled across this little jem of a tune and it had me in stitches laughing as I drove along the highway. I figured I would share, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Dropkick Murphys - "Black Velvet Band" (Live - 2006)

Mom and I were rocking out to this song in the car yesterday and having one wild party as we drove in the beautiful summer weather. We had so much fun blasting it from my car speakers and singing at the top of our lungs! That's how to spend mother / daughter time together!

Females Fix Cars

It seems hilarious to me the number of my male friends who are shocked that i'm not afraid to get under the hood of my car and attempt to fix things.

For the past couple of months, I've been having problems with my car overheating in a very stupid and silly manner, but it has been too cold for me to go and attempt to fix it.

Finally it became warm enough so I decided to tackle changing the thermostat!

I went over to my friends house who also had to work on his car, and we had a car fixing day. When it came time to work on my car, I was the only one who knew how to change the part! ( I have to mention that one friend is a major car enthusiast and the other is an engineer)

They watched as I changed the part and even said that I taught them something.

Huge thanks go out to my mom and grandpa who made sure I wasn't a helpless damsel who couldn't fend for herself! I felt so handy changing the part myself, and in the end it only cost me $15. I also haven't had an overheating problem since! Hurray!

Introducing Lilly

This family are really big animal lovers, and when it comes to me, it's not just house pets but wild animals too! My mom and I are really big cat people and when our 4 year old cat had to be put to sleep in November we were devastated. As part of our healing process, we took home two lovely girls, Spring and Lilly.

Spring is my moms cat, and Lilly is mine. They're both adorable! They're a half Siamese and half Tabby crossbreed. They're litter mates that were born on October 1st 2011.

So below, I introduce my very cute and fluffy baby, Lilly!

A Grand Hello

I'm pretty much well aware that no one is likely to ever come onto my site and read my blog, and to be honest I don't care.

This is me re-doing a blog site because I realized that my last one ha too much personal information about me and for all I know someone could be out there stalking me right now because of it (unlikely).

I decided that I didn't want a blog about just one specific thing because my life has too much in it! Life is diverse!

I may not be a great writer, or even an overly interesting person, but I am a person with an opinion. I'm a person who lives life. In the end, I'm all I need to be, and I like the idea or having a place to write it all down an express myself in any way that I see fit.

So here I am, as myself! Unedited, unfiltered! This is me!
