It’s almost nearing two weeks since my last post, but like I said in my last entry, I would probably be too busy to post. That has definitely been the case.

We had water, soda’s, candy, muffins, grapes, cheese and crackers, mozzarella sticks, pizza bagel bites, taquitos, mini pigs in a blanket (hot dogs wrapped in a crescent roll), and crab ragoon. Everything tasted so good! You know I love some free food. They even gave me the leftovers to bring home. The muffins were so moist and delicious, and I’m not even a big sweets person.
