Favorite Food

I am having a really hard time with these challenges! When I tried to think about my favorite food, all I could think of is that I love food! I never thought I was an indecisive person, but I haven't been able to narrow my answers down to one choice. So here is what I came up with:

One of my favorite restaurants is Pita Jungle. My family and I just love it! Close seconds were Wildflower Bread Company, Lucille's Barbecue, Sweet Tomatoes, Black Angus, Logan's and My Big Fat Greek Restaurant.

My second page is a food category. My name is Lisa and I am a carboholic. Whew! I said it. I like all things carb. Fresh bread or rolls with butter, crusty french bread dipped in olive oil and spices, not to mention yummy bakery treats. Occasionally I try to eliminate sugars and not eat anything for purely entertainment value, but man is it hard. I love my carbs!

I Have the Best Friends

Seriously, I do!!!
I just happen to know some of the most creative, talented and caring women EVER!
I'm just saying....
First off, my friend Amber is quite the artist. She has started painting again and is more talented than I ever knew! She surprised me at work with this amazing piece of art:

Yup, that's our Sadie, and yes she painted it! She used the photo shown with it, from one of my blog posts. Simply amazing!!!! You can see her from my sidebar "Truely Amber". Thanks for the surprise!
And then there is my friend, Toni. She is a really awesome scrapbooker, and her work has been featured on many a scrap site. I love her work, and she is such an artistic inspiration to me. She gave me a belated birthday gift of some hand made embellishments from Etsy:

I can't wait to use these beauties. Thanks Toni. {PS: she can be seen on her blog, "reconsider everything", on my sidebar, too!}

And a small shout out to my work friend, Erika, who is doing a really great thing for a local non-profit. The organization is raising money to make boxes to give to parents at the hospital who have lost their babies. They are planning events to raise money for this endeavor, so for my local friends, you can learn more at:

See? Can't argue with that! I have amazing friends!
