Where to begin?

In all honesty, I'm not too sure why I've decided to start this. Possibly out of boredom, maybe a little bit of curiousity, but probably because I think it will be fun. I've been going back and forth about how to get started, and feel that a typical get-to-know-me introduction is the way to go. A tad cheesy, but as many know, cheesy = me.

So I live in sunny, southern California. One dog, one boyfriend, no white picket fence because well let's be serious, real estate is insane out here. I love that I can walk to the beach. I love even more that in the spring time if the weather is just right, I can go skiing in the morning, and make it home in time to bask on the sand before the sun goes down. I work for a sports media agency, which makes my lack of interest in sports even more hilarious. I LOVE to cook and bake. I'm constantly making cookies, cakes, lavish dinners, and anything else I can think of that will fatten up my tall, lanky man. It still hasn't worked, but I don't think he's complaining about my efforts. I'm the captain of a kickball team, and while it's not exactly challenging, I find that I play significantly better if I have a party cup in my hand. I'm also making an attempt to go back to school. I say this only because I really don't want to be back in school, but I know I have to finish it. So while you're galavanting across town, I'm getting my quadratic formula on! See, I try to get excited, but I really think that school is totally interferring with my social life.

I moved here almost two years ago from Maryland, right outside of DC. I grew up on a cattle farm, a fact that I think some of my new friends still don't believe. While I obviously miss my family and friends, it's the little things that have really started to tug the strings to my little heart. Like when my little sister sends me pictures of the tasty, refreshing Yuengling she's drinking, or talking to my mom and hearing about the frost and the leaves turning. Or getting to ride my horse around when I should help vacinate the cows. I miss having a bar on the first floor of my office building. Nothing beats being able to take the elevator downstairs after a tough day, and drinking vodka tonics, eating lots of fries, and gossiping with my best friends.

Phew! That's a start. A bit all over the place, but I had to start somewhere.

Yay! You have a blog now. I miss the days of drinking downstairs at the bar.

Here's gossip for you, Nick Perez just had a freaking baby with his ex-girlfriend and both are living with his Mom. Isn't that great!?
