For a moment there, I thought I was going to spend the entire weekend indoors. The wind sounded much worse than it felt. I have to say the best part about cold weather is how much more cooking I’m willing to do.  I enjoy being by the warm stove, like this weekend, stewing up my very own hot sauce, or pepper as we call it. I use a mix of scotch bonnet peppers, onions, garlic, ginger and a few other things. The hubby jokes that I’ve killed my tastebuds with the amount of hot sauce I consume. Who cares, I’m warm on the inside.

    I immediately thought to myself why not work my blog backwards instead of just keeping the ending in mind. Start with the conclusion (which sums up what you’re going to talk about) and end with the opening statement which many times asks some form of an open-ended question.
    Oh and while we’re quoting people . . . my favorite quote was from Albert Einstein – “If I had my life to live over again, I’d be a plumber.”

    In an age when fashion bloggers are wearing Chanel and designer purses to the grocery store, I am thankful that you keep it real with your outfits. I can see myself wearing those items and they are easy to find. Keep up the great work! I love how creative you get with your outfits 🙂

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
