my keyboard is showing remnants of that fabulous trip i wish i was still on....

...big sigh...
I will catch up on where the heyo i have been soon but right now i am still buried under a pile of "computer work" and a load of life changing decisions...
(ya, start sending good vibes my way now)
so you might have to cut me a break and excuse my absence from blog-land.

the rejects:

Well I entered some photos in this contest and I have been so excited about the whole thing and I REALLY want to blog the ones I entered but part of the rules say the photos cant be posted, entered, or "seen" anywhere else!

So, I will share the "rejects" that didn't get posted in the competition:

First, the salty: Bleu Cheese Bacon Burgers

Now the sweet: Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches

Having all this food in the house (particularly the homemade peanut butter ice cream) is really putting a cramp on my "dieting plans"... so I have been telling myself:

"its OK, its all for the photos! its your art! who cares if its an extra 5,000 calories?"

to make myself feel better! Does anybody else find their art sabotaging their diets?

happy Wednesday.

will be back with real posts soon...

like when the semester is FINALLY OVER!
