Are you sure we aren't in Key West?

Sadly we are not in Key West. anyway. This past time in Florida I got addicted to key lime pie, so when I came home I knew Ben & Jerry's had an ice cream flavor in key lime, it's great as well. But nothing compares to the real, or close enough to an actual Florida key lime pie. This past weekend I decided to make one, and let me tell you I'm not a baker at all. Trust me I've messed up Jell-O before, how much more sad can you get than that? I figured it would be easy......and it WAS not a mess up at all.

Below will be links to the pie filling and crust.

A simple graham cracker crust, just: unsalted butter, sugar, and of course graham crackers.
In the process of mixing a loveliness, in the bowel: sweetened condensed milk, 6 egg yolks. Wouldn't want to bore you of pretty much the same stage, since when you add the key lime juice it looks the same. the key lime is in the mixture as well.

Just out of the oven. Above picture.

Refrigerated pie over night, in the recipe it doesn't say to but seeing as I it was done around 5 o'clock.

And the finished product. I'm quite proud of myself too.

Summer guilty pleasures, what are yours?

It's that time of year when we're either watching re-runs of House or CSI: Miami to take care of summer boredom, until new fall seasons start. But why wait when there are countless summer series to watch? Just like anyone I like my reruns (Gilmore Girl's on SoapNet?) still sad that it ended over three years ago, how time flys. These are just a couple of my summer guilty television pleasures.

There really is only so much to say about two of the Kradashian sister's, in Kourtney and Khloe take Miami. There is just about a no hold bar with these two. I can only say but to take the 30 minutes to watch these two, you can't not but like them and the show if you watch Keeping up the the Kardashian's. Sunday's on E! 10/9c.

Unless you've been living under a rock since 2008 you probably have heard of, watched, or watch True Blood. Many people that have watched the last two seasons will say season two was the better out of the two.....but in my opinion it was far from better than the first. Possibly too many orgies for me, or how much Sookie's' character changed from one to another. Still have yet to watch the first two episode's, but they are are my DVR waiting to be watched. Maybe that is what I'll do after this post?

9/8c Sundays on HBO.

Photo post coming the the next few days. Thanks for reading.

Models, photoshopping, Blackberry.

Sorry for my lack of entries this week, I'm in a "photography-block" if you will nothing seems inspirational lately. Anyway. This post on CoCoPerez today caught my eye, some people may remember a while ago Ralph Lauren fell under bad press with photoshopping a model to unrealistic proportions. This time however Nordstrom has photoshopped Ralph Lauren model, Tao Okamoto, already thin to have a young child's proportion(s). Do you think Nordstrom should remove the photo from their website? or do you think it's part of the fashion business?

On another note, today I upgraded my phone from an LG Chocolate to a Blackberry Pearl it won't arrive until Monday (crosses fingers it's here tomorrow) it has over-night shipping but with it being Saturday I'm thinking Monday. If you have a Blackberry do you like it? pros & cons, this will be my first one.

Have a great weekend!!

Quick update

Hello. Hopefully your weekend is going well and hope your week was good as well.

No photography today (or should I say night) I just wanted to update quickly. This weekend are my last dance recitals, I've finished two and one tomorrow, my poor dad has to spend his Father's Day at a dance recital (what I'm sure all dads want to do. haha). It's crazy that after 10 years of dance it's over, but more than likely I'll take a class during college to help keep off the freshmen 15. Every year the studio I attend does a "funny number" really just spoofing a song, TV show, movie, etc, as long as it goes with the theme. I am apart of it again this year and a girl from the 1980's Robert Palmer 'Simply Irresistible' video.

Again have to good Sunday.

Long waiting

Hope everyone's weekend is going well, if you aren't already out of school. As said in my last post I am blogging about my vacation to Central Florida from the end of last month. Manly there are just the "highlight/landmark" photos, I wouldn't want to bore anyone for to long with a bunch of random photo, but the few I did add.

In the the years I've been to Disney I've never seen Hollywood Studios this crazy packed. Actually I don't have many pictures from there, we got there around 11:15 and stayed for about 30-45 minutes. Fast Pass for the Rockin' Roller Coaster return was 5:45-6:45 nuts huh? and it was not even noon.

I can't believe my senior dance year is almost over next weekend are my recitals, I have two on Saturday and one Sunday. This week will be crazy running around for this and that for it, tonight I have a three hour practice, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday as well. Friday is dress rehearsal. ahah. Luckly enough I'll get home just in time to watch the season 3 premiere of True Blood.

How should tthis be tilted?

Reason number one why I hate summer: Bugs. Currently as I type there is a fly annoying the living @#%$ out of me, for the last 45 minutes I've been trying to either kill it (no offence to animal rights people) or get it out of this room. Ughhhh. My mother and sibling are probably thinking I'm crazy. Anyway to get away from that @%$& fly problem. haha.

I know it's been so, so long since a last photo update but to be honest I haven't been taking many photos in the last weeks. I was going to make this sort of a double post and update with a few photos that were taken when I went to Central Florida at the end of last month. Sometime this weekend they should be up.

Just a couple from the last few days. not great by any means.

Have a great weekend! and if your already done with school for the summer have a great summer as well.

I must be the worst person for blogging in history, plus a bitter sweet week

And I really mean it it's going on a month since my last post, ekk. As I've said in probably other posts I have good reasons now I'll take you on my long list of them, since right now I actually have time, as it's 2:34 A.M. and not able to sleep. As I type I'm watching, or listening, to Dear John (I won't say what I though about it as this moment) anyway. It's a bitter sweet week, I really cannot believe the four years of high school are over, as of 4 o'clock this afternoon I was officially DONE with high school, it's been a long yet short road (if that makes sense). It was sad to think that this will probably will be one of the last few times I'll see some of these people for a while (if at all again), yet happy to think we're all moving forward in life to become all that we can be. How I'll miss some of them. It's really starting to hit me 9 hours later that I am really not going back come September, It's bitter sweet to think. But whatever life has in store next...the unknown that may be, I'm ready. Here is to the road unknown.....and to now looking for a summer job. Job hunting here I come.

Here is to the class of 2010. Great job!
