I'm back in action!

Okay, okay, I know I haven't been around much lately. I am so sorry! I miss you, blog friends! I promise to be much more diligent about my updating this week!

How was your Labor Day? I spent it riding around on Blue Betty and hanging out with friends. After all, how can you let a Labor Day go by without time spent with friends around a barbecue?

And just because I know you are all DYING to see her again...

Please do not hold my no make-up look against me. Besides, who gets all dolled up to exercise? Well, who other than Mariah Carey? :)

Blue Betty loves Keva Juice too!

Well, now that Labor Day has come and gone, it's time to start thinking about fall! Do you have any fall traditions? What is your favorite thing about this time of year?

For me, the best things about fall are the cool weather and comfort foods. I can't wait to start whipping up pumpkin and squash dishes! Oh, and I'm especially looking forward to a pumpkin smoothie that is coming up!

Some of you may know that I grew up in Louisiana...land of top notch cooks. I have been asked by Twitter friends @the_pink_owl and @nololos to share my super-secret-super-awesome gumbo recipe. And, of course, I'm happy to oblige. You can find it HERE. If you try it, please remember that a good gumbo takes time and is NOT a 30-minute meal. As long as you are patient with it, you won't be disappointed.

  1. Blue Betty is gorgeous! My bike (since you asked) is a Nirve Hello Kitty Beach Cruiser (one speed). I guess you can add me to the Mariah Carey camp because I never exercise/leave the house without make up. If I could get away with the natural look, I would, so I say good for you that you look great without it.

    I think my favorite part of fall is the smell of the leaves and the crunch of them as you walk on the street. And I *love* anything pumpkin! I think the pumpkin pancakes will be in rotation very soon.
