Domestic Diva

I have been quite the domestic diva lately. I have been cooking and cleaning more than usual. (I guess there's at least ONE good side to these snow days we keep getting.)

Anyway, I used to hate to cook, so much so, I would have much rather cleaned the toilet. Now, being in my home for about 18 months now, I've found a love in my heart for cooking. Ordering from Angel Food Ministries ( has also challenged me to use what I have in the house and to try out new foods. They have such a variety of food every month, many I wouldn't even normally buy. So, it's gotten me on the menu bandwagon.

So now I start off with a basic recipe, but make it my own specialty by adding my own little spice to it. This month, I made Pinto Beans for the first time and they were DELICIOUS!! My family and friends are loving it and I am loving my kitchen!!

Yesterday, after finishing 5 loads of laundry...I pulled out my spool of thread to mend some pants...LOL

There is a reason for this domestic wave of energy I'm experiencing...preparation for the future. I think so.

Celebrating Me...all month long!!

February is always a good month for me!! I'm elated to be the Pisces that I am and I just LOVE February. I like the way it sounds, the way it's spelled, the way it spent!! The 19th is the most special day of all...of BIRTHDAY!!

This year, I decided to LIVE IT OUT!! I don't have a problem celebrating, but I've never really stepped out this much!! First, let me share the link to my feature in Lifestyles of the Pretty and Prosperous:

Next, I received a couple of contacts for other kinds of features. Can't reveal them yet, but I'm truly honored and blessed!!

Then...this weekend I will be acting in the University of Toledo Performing Arts production of The Vagina Monologues!! It is a dream come true and I'm looking forward to a freeing I'll be giving a high pitched MOAN on stage!! LOL

Now for the icing on my birthday cake!! I'll be spending my birthday this year in Los Angeles, doing what I love!! BEHIND THE MIC!! My online voice over mentor is having a VO workshop and I am SO EXCITED to be both meeting him AND attending his class!!

So you see...let me keep it simple...February is about CELEBRATING ME!! Cheers!!
