Busy Week!

I took a bit of a blogging break last week, but now I'm back in action.  Life right now is a whirlwind of moving, packing, and getting ready for my husband to come home for good!  You can see my guy mailed me our entire spice pantry.  The movers won't take it from Guam...apparently spices don't clear customs and you know I wasn't going to leave that behind.  My two little sacks of Fiji Sugar, on the left box there, are my absolute treasures.  (Speaking of spices...I had a great trip to Penzey's this week, more on that later)

And tomorrow I'm running my second Half Marathon!!  I didn't train as hard for this one so I'm doing it more for fun.  Yes, I think running 13.1 miles is fun.

Peyton, a great Guam friend of mine, writes about her adventures in local, island eating for the Guam Guide.  She seriously finds the COOLEST things about Guam and really embraces the new culture that I'm going to miss so much.  You never know when you will meet a locksmith who also happens to be a Bee Keeper who sells local honey!  She recently tried out my Roasted Eggplant with Honey recipe with a Guam twist, read about it here!

A few months ago I wrote a very vague post (read it here) about being featured in a magazine.  I was so excited and a little hesitant about how to share it.  It was something that was so important to me, but didn't think it was a big deal to anyone else.  Then I decided okay, that's just dumb.  I don't care if it was a few months ago, I'm still so stoked about it.  I was featured in Fitness Magazine's February's I Did It! section.  Read More Here!!!

So that's a little bit of what's going on over here.  Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I promise to be back with comments, posts, and some fun stuff this week.
