I decided to experiment with mascarpone cheese and made these yummy muffins:

Plus, it gave me an excuse to use the lemons and blueberries I had on hand. See SpongeBob on the paper liners? Hee, hee!

Yay for Internet Access!

Ok! I can finally get online at home now! Here are the promised photos of the monarchs that were in my backyard.

The last one is a little "where's Waldo"!

Stitch 2007

Hey everybody! I know I haven't updated my blog recently, but my home internet connection has been nonexistent. I though I'd share this picture, though! My friend Diana and I went to the Stitch show in Austin last Saturday, and we had a blast! I think I look a little crazed/maniacal...what's going on with my face in this photo? Of course, Diana is glowing, as she should be since she is embarazada.
I'll post much prettier pictures of the monarchs I had in my yard a couple of weeks ago once I install my new internet package at home! Plus...there will be fabulous before and after pics of my house, which will be painted soon! Hooray!
