I Think I Can

This isn't a blog about how I am sorry I haven't blogged. Because when I read those all I can think is "Why spend your time writing that blog...why not jut start blogging?" But I do want to make sure that my faithful readers (or reader) know that I do want to blog. I do...I really do. I think about it all the time, and I read all the blogs I love thinking about how great it would be if I had an actual blog, like a big girl blog.
So this is a blog about a challenge to myself.
I am going to blog for one whole month.
There I said it, and now you can hold me accountable (if you wanted to).
So I am going to blog for the whole month of December. And I am really hoping that this will jump start me into blogging - like for real.

So 31 days (well really 32 if you count this one).

For now I will leave you with this cute little piggy wearing rain boots...until tomorrow!

I Am Bacon You To Stop

The other day I was watching TV and heard about Bacon Salt which is kind of like Garlic Salt...but you know...bacon flavored. I was mildly interested - I mean I enjoy stuff that tastes like bacon. I started imagining all the things that are healthy that I could sprinkle a little Bacon Salt on to trick my tongue into thinking I was eating something bad for me. Rice cakes, fro yo, celery. Then maybe I wouldn't crave things that were actually bad for me. You know...like...bacon.

But then I was browsing one of my favorite catalogs Think Geek (what? people still shop from catalogs right?) and they had a two whole pages dedicated to bacon stuff. TWO WHOLE PAGES.

Then I was online doing some Christmas shopping and I came across Bacon Flavored Envelopes. This whole obsessed with bacon thing is being taken a little far. I mean let's be honest it doesn't matter what flavor you make an envelope I am going to continue splurging for self sealing envelopes.

I heart Children's Books

While looking over this list I was reminded how much I love Children's books. I have always been drawn to them, and even have a few of them sitting on my bookshelf with my other books. The illustrations, the stories, the sometimes rhyming. I love the titles that don't really have any hidden meaning, and that identifying the moral of the story is usually done within the first pages of the story. And there is no guilt about them lying unfinished on your bedside table.
