I feel like I have officially joined the land of the "real" food bloggers.  Ladies and gentlemen, yesterday I bought my very first food processor!!!  I cannot tell you how excited I am to now be able to make all those elusive recipes that I see other bloggers making, only to be restricted by my lack of said processor.  I can finally make guacamole!  I can make Angela's banana soft serve.  I can make a crapload of stuff from Julie, and Avery.  Possibilities are endless.  Do you have a food processor recipe you want to give me??  Because I can't wait to break in the bad boy!!
I had the work schedule from hell this weekend.  Starting Friday at 7am, I worked 24 hours out of the following 32.  NIGHTMARE.  I am currently laying in bed with the laptop, trying to avoid walking because my feet hurt so bad.  And in case you thought maybe I would get a break, well, you would be wrong.  Up and at it again tomorrow for a lovely 8 hour shift at Target.  I was dreading this weekend all week long, and I am probably the only person on the planet who can't wait for Monday.  I work at Target only 20 hours next week... tomorrow being 8 of those hours.  I just need to get through tomorrow..
I am also not ashamed to admit that the majority of my dinner tonight was a DQ blizzard.  Its so damn HOT in NC lately, temps right around 100 for the past week and forecasted for all next week.  I had no plans for this when I left work today, but all of a sudden I had a craving and had to get it.  It was ah-mazing.  For someone who usually has food guilt, I have no regrets.  Because it was PERFECT.
I am debating taking Molly for a walk later tonight, after it cools down.  It depends on how my feet feel.  My poor feet.. and yes, I wear good shoes.  Its the bad leg blood circulation that runs in my family, thanks to all the women on both sides.  For now, I am going to veg and read some blogs, watch some TV, and decide my walk later on.  Have a lovely Saturday night :)

You are VERY fancy!! I had a food processor once and when I took the damn thing apart to wash it, I couldn't get it back together. I later found the parts in a zip lock baggie in my breast pump bag. Like, way after I'd stopped breast feeding. So strange.

The Blizzard sounds yummy and, if it's anything like TX in NC right now, it's never going to cool off. EVER. You might as well enjoy that Blizzard and save the walk for another day!

Have fun at work!!

Candance: Seriously, what were the food processor parts doing in the breast pump bag..? That is beyond hilarious. And the Blizzard was perfect, chocolate ice cream with cookie dough and oreo. It was gone in about .2 seconds. I highly recommend :)

Please post food processor recipes you try. I tried to use mine for the first time the other day and it was a huge failure. I don't even know what I did wrong- haha!

Can't wait to see what you make :)
