Five Faves on Friday #7: Food

One of my favorite things in this world is eating delicious food. This is hard to pick just five things, but here are some of my five favorite foods. (All photos are mine).

Blue Crabs
Being from Maryland, it’s no surprise that blue crabs are my favorite food. My mom ate them all the time when she was pregnant with me, and I’ve been eating them since I was a little toddler. It’s really enjoyable to sit outside on a nice day and just pick and eat crabs for hours. The Old Bay seasoning makes them truly great.

Tacos
I love all kinds of tacos. Crunchy shell, soft shell, beef, chicken, shrimp, or fish. They’re all delicious to me. I’m especially fond of street style tacos with cilantro and onion.

Pizza
I don’t always feel the greatest after eating pizza. It tends to sometimes leave me feeling yucky, but I just can’t resist it. I love ham and pineapple pizza, and I also love to get heavily topped pizza’s with ham, italian sausage, salami, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, and jalapeños.

Buffalo Wings
I love hot buffalo wings. I feel like aside from the yummy taste, they’re also fun to eat. I especially like them with celery (and carrots too) and blue cheese dressing on the side.

Subs
I like different kinds of subs from different places, but my favorite is the Italian sub from a local shop here called Turtle’s. (The wings pictured above are also from Turtle’s). The rolls are super soft and fresh, and the lettuce is specially seasoned which provides a unique and delicious taste like no other.

100 Followers! + Shopping Trip

179

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who has followed me so far! I have now passed 100 followers! I opened this blog two and a half months ago, and I was nervous that nobody would be interested and I would be talking to myself. I didn’t think I would gain this many followers in such a short time. I do admit I get down on myself sometimes because I see other bloggers who started theirs around the same time (or even after me), and they have twice as many followers now. I have to remind myself that it’s not a competition or a popularity contest. As long as I’m having fun doing what I’m doing (which I am), then that’s what matters. Of course I want people to like and be interested in what I have to say. I think that’s something we all want. I’m just glad I’ve been able to continually grow my blog.

Yesterday, I went to the mall on a little shopping trip. I honestly can’t remember the last time I went to the mall. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a bit of a homebody. I also like shopping at stores that we don’t have in the mall here, so I tend to buy everything online. Well, I attempted to buy jeans online a while back too, and that didn’t work out so well. It’s a shame too because I absolutely loved those jeans, but despite being the size I normally wear, I couldn’t pull them up over my butt. From that moment, I decided any time I needed new jeans I would have to try them on before I bought them. That’s what triggered my trip to the mall. I’ve been wearing the same jeans for about a decade now. They got to the point where I couldn’t wear them much longer. There were big holes in the butt (where I had to wear a long shirt to cover it), and rips up the leg. I needed new jeans, asap.
