Blog Makeover

I’ve been trying to makeover my blog, but it’s not going very well…I’m just not sure if I like the new changes.  I was totally starting to get bored with my old look, but I can’t seem to be happy with the new look.  Hmph.  What now?  Any thoughts?  Perhaps this new look is a little too stiff or boring? Who knows. Eventually I will be content with the changes, until then…let me know what you think, please?

A Blogging Funk

Unfortunately, I have been MIA in the blogging world lately.  A couple of months ago I started getting into a blogging funk, which was then followed by an overwhelming amount of studying at school…resulting in me not blogging for over a month.  I am sure all my reader(s) missed me dearly. Quite honestly, I missed me.

I do have some exciting news though,  I have recently been “re-inspired,” and well…I’m back!!!! Have any of you seen the movie Julie & Julia?  I finally watched it today and it was excellent!! Totally recommended.  I won’t spoil it for those of you who have not seen it, but in short:  The character Julie decides to start a blog about how she will make every recipe from Julia Childes cookbook, all within a year.  Now, now, don’t get too excited….I don’t plan on writing daily about every recipe from a cookbook, however, I am hoping to get into a much better blogging routine, just as Julie did.

I’m excited for this new found inspiration.

A Masquerade

A couple of weeks ago the dental school held an event called “A Dent in Diversity.” The event hosted minority dentists from the community.  The focus was to encourage these dentists to donate money to a scholarship that would allow for more minority students to attend OSU’s dental school.

Enough about why the event was held; more importantly, it was a MASQUERADE!! How much fun is that? Brilliant theme.  Loved it.

The Mask


Masks + People

Jess and I


Its official, masquerades are my favorite kind of themed party. I proudly wore my mask for most of the night and I discovered  that I kind of wish I could wear it regularly, as if it were an accessory to an outfit. That’d be a fabulous fashion statement.

Alias Katie.

I would consider myself a fairly patient person, but lately I have been loosing my mind patience with one of my classmates.  For the sake of privacy, we’ll call call her Katie.  Honestly speaking, Katie is super sweet and innocent–but, well…she’s also incredibly frustrating to talk to.  Allow me to give you an example of a phone conversation we had a couple of days ago:

Phone rings….

Me: Hi Katie

Katie: Hi Laura, its Katie.

Me: Yes, Katie I know.  How are you?

Katie: Hello??

Me: Hi Katie its Laura!

Katie: Oh, Hi Laura, It’s Katie.

Me: Hi, what’s up?

Katie: Umm. Well.  Oh, wait. I um forgot.

Me: Oh, ok. Do you want to call me back when you remember?

Katie: No, hold on…..ummmm……hello?? Laura??

Me: Yes.

Katie: Oh hey, ok yea so you know that email that we got. Ummm, well… wait what? What did I just say?

I am not even exaggerating in the slightest with this telephone conversation.  I don’t want to annoy you with the rest of it, but I am sure you could only image how it continued.  What do I do with this girl?? I can’t be rude to her, it’s just not my style.  But I wanted to jump through the phone and shake her!! I just wanted her to speak what she was thinking.  Talking to her in person results in a similar conversation, but she usually gets distracted and the conversation comes to quick end.

I guess I just have to hope that either her communication skills improve or that I become more patient. Oh, Katie.

It’s Officially Fall!

Although I consider myself a summer weather kinda girl, I must admit that a few of my favorite things come in the fall! The longer I live in Ohio, the more I learn to appreciate all fantastic things that come with this time of the year…


1. The change in the colors of the  leaves is definitely one of the best parts of        fall. All the different shades of red and orange are absolutely breath taking.

2. Pumpkin spice lattes – DELICIOUS!

3.  Apple picking is an all time favorite! I haven’t had the chance to go this
year, but it’s always an adventure. –> As a result of apple picking I get to bake apple pie, apple muffins, apple crisp, baked apples…

4. Crisp Air – although I LOVE warm weather, fall days where the temperature is perfect and this air is crisp and refreshing are always appreciated.

5. Scarves, my all time favorite. First off, they’re a perfect addition to any outfit.  Second, they keep me nice and warm !

6. Halloween – I love handing out candy to the little tricker treaters…AKA I love having an excuse to buy candy to eat.

7.  Now that the weather is cooler, its the perfect time to start enjoying all those                                                        warm foods and drinks that you couldn’t enjoy during summer -chili, tomato soup, hot cocoa, warm apple cider…etc!

So basically, how could you not love fall?
