The Great Blog Search

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their son today! I've loved following their relationship and wedding, and it's so fun to see them become parents! Despite the negative views some have of the Royal Family, I think Will and Kate are handling their roles quite gracefully.

To celebrate, tonight I set the table with a little British flair. So cheesy and so ridiculous--please don't judge me too harshly--but fun nonetheless. As Terry pointed out, this is what happens when he cooks the meal and I have too much time on my hands. Clearly I'm much more controlled when I do the cooking.

The picture frame was a gift from my friend Amanda. We got married three months after Will and Kate and then went to London on our honeymoon, so she was hoping we would meet them and become good friends. Still working on it.

Terry grilled a fantastic meal tonight: bison tri tip and grilled corn, plus leftover Brussels sprouts from last week and some garlic bread and Stella too.

Earlier in the day, I had hoped to bake scones, but that'll need to wait until tomorrow. For today, the British dinner and tea had to suffice.

And now moving along to far less important concerns, like the blog search I'm currently undergoing. See, I read several health and fitness blogs; some of my favorites are The Fitnessista, 100 Days of Real Food, Peanut Butter Fingers, Best Body Fitness, Sweet Tooth Sweet Life (about to pop!!! good luck Courtney!), and Daily Garnish. I read several others, but those I check every day. But I'm now trying to find some blogs on other topics to expand my blog roll. I really love reading about healthy living, but there are so many other topics I've never even thought to explore online.

I'm interested in any of the following topics:

  • travel
  • literature
  • the English language/grammar
  • parenting
  • San Francisco or the Bay Area in general
  • general humor, especially relating to super sarcastic responses to recent events
Any suggestions? What's your favorite non-healthy living blog?

Also (more importantly), how did you celebrate the royal birth?


  1. Have you read/visited Hungry Runner Girl? I think you would like her...

  2. It's hilarious that you set the table that way! I'm sure you're not the only one excited about the royal baby! My friends and I watched the super cheesy movie about how they met and then watched the royal wedding...which was cool but it seems so unreal, you know? They are pretty dang adorable though. Did you see pictures of Kate a day after giving birth? She looked gorgeous! Unreal. ;)
