How did I EVER stay away so long?

Y'all... Your comments from my last post were EFFING UNREAL. There is no other way to put it. They were so PERFECT, each and every one, and I feel so honored that anyone reads my blog, let alone THE SWEETEST LIL LOVERBUNNIES, EVER! I have felt every single prayer, thought, wish, *hug,* and blessing. I don't know what the hell I was thinking staying away from this community. But I feel so blessed to be a part of it again, and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for welcoming me back with such warmth and such grace.


I am taking each and every day, one at a time, to keep my face in the direction of the horizon. Yes, that IS a choice. Yes, that IS a choice. Yes, that IS a choice. And one that I have decided to take on FULL-SPEED. Even if I have to take it hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second, in the words of the BLOGGAH,


WHATEVA, I DO WHAT I WANT.




Now... Here's what I want from y'all. And get ready for some OVERKILL ON THE WORD FRONT: I want to know what you want from yo homegirl, S+D (not to be confused with the so ovah sugar-sub S+L). What do you want to see on my blizzlegizz (ew.)? Recipes? Grocery Pics? Animal Pics? Hawaii stories/pics? Product Reviews (I have so many secret faves, y'all... Well, not anymore I guess...)? Yoga talk? Buddha talk? Booty talk? Let me hear it! I want my blog to satisfy ALL Y'ALL PIMPS N HOES!




***Please note: I really have no interest and am not comfortable with making this a FOOD-DIARY-BLOG, though let's be REAL, it's SO MUCH FUN to read them!!! Come on... Who popped their cherry with Eat Like Me ??? ANYWAYS, I'm sorry if you want that. But I'm just not at that level yet. Who knows, perhaps someday I will be, but for now... That'll be a negative. Thanks ferplayin.***




I'm off to hit up some SUPER GIANT for some SUPER GROCERIES! I hear y'all on the Whole Foods front, but I must admit: Any type of drug emporium Food store is cool with me! I love them all and have found the BEST products at every one. I love the diversity of each of the chains, and seriously, little health food stores? I LURRRVE. {purrrr.}




So until we meet again, my pearls, here are some pictures of my PARADISE... The Magical Island of Kona (The Big Island) of Hawaii:

Gorgeous photos! Much nicer to look at the cold and dreary Minnesota sky that's been the cover of CEMENT for the last week.

All your blog needs is you to be yourself, and you're doing a mighty fine job at it, baby girl. Your honesty is so, so appreciated. Have a great day!

Maggie said...

*Erica* said...

Ummm, as far as what I want on ye ole blog...I like the booty talk idea. :-) LOL I just love YOU so I don't care what you write about, your laundry or whatever! Glad you're back BABY!!

Sarah said...

My comment got deleted and I'm pissed because it rocked your socks off.

1. Mis padres are in KONA right now! We went last Feb, my hubs wants to go in April. I hope moms and pops bring me some Kona coffee back!
2. You could blog the alphabet and I'd read it. Though Jenna popped my cherry, I'm starting to get heebed out by posting everything I eat. I'm thinking I might switch it up too, but I don't want to lose anybody in the process. They don't want me for my food, though.
3. 5'9" 1/2?????!!! HECKYA! Can I borrow some shoes? Size 10 or 11?

LOVE you for about a gajillion new reasons now!

Now please don't delete my comment, blogger...!

A Toronto girl out West said...

Is that where you live!??!?! That's STUNNING!!!!!!!!

It reminds me of Vancouver Island - I lived in Victoria, British Columbia for years and it was very similar.

Sigh . . .

Diana said...

Psssshhh anyone reading this post right now is gonna read whatever you post next, so no worries - you just post what floats yer boat. That's my philosophy - I even said so in my blog bio. :)

And yeah, it appears I'm not alone in having been deflowered by Eat Like Me. You always remember your first time! siiiiigggghhh

apluseating said...

ALL OF THE ABOVE! whatever you want girl sounds great, i always love recipes and product reviews though. buddah talk is quite intriguing as well!

love you julz!!!

beautiful pictures!!!

ChocolateCoveredVegan said...

I think you should blog about what YOU like to blog about, and people will love it!

As for the mayo, I bought the fat free one on sale a few weeks ao because it expires in March. That's the only one my grocry store had, and if you can believe it, I don't think I'd ever tried vegan mayo bfore! I just never thought to, because I never liked regular mayo. But I love it, so if you say the other varieties are better, then I think I need to look out for them!

ourkitchenadventures said...

BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS! These made my day---I want to be there haha!

Erin of Care to Eat said...

I'm sayin.' Whateva you blog about, I'll read about.

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

Beautiful pics Julz! I'd love some more yoga talk please. :)

eatingbender said...

Andrea of Care to Eat said...

You blog about whatever your pretty little heart desires - food, boys, carpet samples, whatever - we're still gonna drink it in and squeal with delight when a new post pops up in our G. Reader!

orangepop said...
