BACON! That is all you need to know!

This may look like a very unhealthy meal, but everything is lighter versions of originally high calorie foods. Minus the bacon. I thought about buying turkey bacon, but it just isn't the same. :)

Most of my day was spent thinking about new domain names for my blog. I am ready to drop the Blogspot. With Huck's job we can move any where, and I know I do not want to live in Florida for ever, so I thought about dropping the Florida. Also isn't available. 

Lots of thinking to do!! I'll be sure to keep everyone informed!!
