This week has been kind of hectic, especially because I am just getting over a cold.

I spent this week doing a ton of school, and i made two aprons.

I had to do a demonstration project for school, and I did cooking so, I needed something to wear. You know to get people into the vibe! ;) My mom and I had gone to a fabric store a while ago, and I found the cutest vintage fabric. (I would like to make a cute sun dress out of it over the summer.) So I made an apron out of that, and then made another one for a lady who goes to our church. She cooks for over 100 people every wednesday night. Her food is always so gourmet and DELISH! Gosh if I tried to cook for that many people........

I will post pictures of the aprons, after we get some camera batteries.. That camera really eats the batteries fast!

I made guacamole for my demonstartion project


  • 2 medium sized ripe avocados

  • 2 TBLS lemon or lime juice

  • 2-3 cloves garlic

  • 1/4 TSP ground sea salt

  • sprig of cilantro

  1. cut avocados in half, using a spoon scrape out avocado. place into a bowl

  2. add salt, lime juice, and garlic

  3. mash with a fork ( food processor or blender)

  4. mince cilantro. Add to mixture

Thats it! There are soo many ways to make guacamole, with tomatoes, peppers.....This is just a short easy way. I believe it took 5 minutes. (well and a lot of talking!;)

I really wanted to post a video. Can someone clue me in on how to? I get how to press the button that says 'add video' but I don't really know how to save a video to add it.

I got a giftcard to I tunes and bought some songs. Have you ever heard the song at the end of the "ultimate gift?" well its by Sara Groves and is called 'something changed' I bought that one and I like it alot!

Sorry this post has been skipping around to some many things. Hope you have a great weekend!

Okay, you get one of my tutorial and helpful hints comments...lucky you. :P lol

1. Batteries for the camera...if it takes AA or AAA batteries, get the Energizer lithium batteries. They're blue and silver, a little expensive, but they last SO much longer in a camera. (They also have 8-packs of them at Lowes hardware, which are a better deal than the 4-pack).

So, once you get the camera going, I'd like to see pictures! Sounds cute! :)

I absolutely LOVE guacamole!!! Love it, love it, love it!!! Mmm...would the video have anything to do with guacamole? ;)

2. Posting a video...on YouTube if you look in the sidebar there is a place where it says "embed". Cut and paste this code, then look at it...where it says 425 and 344 you need to change those two numbers to 400 and 334 (and they're in there twice so make sure you change both. If the video happens to be a different size, you need to figure out the percentage. Divide the smaller number by the larger, then multiply that decimal by 400 (which is the widest the video can be to fit properly on your blog. So you'll end up making it 400 by whatever number goes with it.

Did that make sense at all? :/

Oh, you don't have to click add video, you paste the code into the main blog post. "Add video" is if you want to upload a video you took.

Hee-hee...word verification is "orifying"...probably what this comment is. ;)
