I'm Backkk!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010
I'm back my bloggie loves! I know it has been a terribly long time since I've posted but I can certainly explain myself. I had asked my sister to do some guest blogging for me while I was away, but I saw upon my return that she has failed me. What else is new? ;)

I went on a really great trip with one of my best friends (the commonly mentioned Maria) and her family. We spent time at their mountain house, then Washington D.C., then a whole week at Bethany Beach, Delaware! This was my first time going to the beach and I had such a great time. We had beautiful weather (most days) and stayed in a cute house. It was great having a pool you could return to after spending time at the beach as well.

I did try boogie boarding and riding some waves, but I wasn't a fan of being basically beat up by the waves. Oh, and the sand. Yeah, sand is nice, but not all up in your bathing suit. I did, however, enjoy tanning, laying out in the sun, getting some rays, etc. I happily returned nice and tan and sunburn free!

The day after returning from that vacation, I headed off to Cedar Point with my own family! My sister met some friends at the amusement park, while my mom, dad, and I headed to Soak City. I DO NOT do well at amusement parks. My stomach can not handle it AT ALL. I strongly emphasize this fact because it is really bad. Ever hear of Kennywood Park? It's a half hour from my house in Pittsburgh and my school has a picnic there every year. I go, I get sick, vow I'll never do it again, and then end up going the next year. I just don't seem to learn.

Soak City was really fun. I love love love water parks because I never get s
ick. I love the thrill of the slides, especially the enclosed ones! It was a three hour drive to Sandusky and I drove the whole way=) And, I continued to do all the driving while we remained there. However, I allowed my dad to drive us home. I need to do some hardcore texting, and you can't do that while driving of course!

So now I'm finally home after two full weeks of vacation and ironically I feel like I need a vacation from vacation! Just time to relax and unwind and make lists. I love making lists. To be honest, though, I have so much to catch up on because my school insisted on calling me and e-mailing me numerous times throughout my vacation. I was appointed president of this group at our school called Student Ambassadors. I won't bore you with descriptions.

Foodwise, I went to this amazing place called The Thirsty Pony. I had lobster bisque in a sourdough bread bowl. I loved how they put the bread bowl in a bowl and then drenched the bisque overtop, allowing it to get all mushy and gooood. For a dinner I went to a Perkins for the first time. Ehhh. Nothing special at all. I also went to a Denny's for the first time and loved it! They're french toast is awesome and they had nice yogurt and granola. Not to mention some fab pancake options. Also, I hit up the Hard Rock Cafe in DC and got the S.O.B. burger. It was money.

Now I've been dying to tell you guys something. But I think I'll do a separate post because this one is super long. Hint: DC Cupcakes.

So, will I be back to baking? If I am, it'll be slow. I'm a little busy but it should slow down soon. I still have some old posts in my back pocket to use in the meantime. What I can reveal is that I'm actually going to be doing some cooking. Gasp! I know I know, but I have to hold true to my blog title somehow!

Thank you if you were able to make it through this whole recap! Check in soon for some recipes!
