Lunch! I wanted eggs and a salad for lunch so I decided to make an egg salad, just not the “usual” kind. I made an egg patty and put it on top of a big ol’ bed of lettuce, onions and tomatoes.

About an hour and $5.00 in tolls later () I met up with … [Read more...]

Ben and I break glasses like we live at a Jewish wedding. We must break at least 1 glass a week! But, yesterday I broke something special and I was very sad :( My mom bought us Mr. and Mrs. mugs from Disney World and I had the important task of bringing them home. When I took them out of the box I saw that Ben’s mug was broken. Boo. I broke it before he even had the chance to … [Read more...]
