Answers for you, because I just love you like that.

I love the questions. I say it, and I mean it. So, keep them coming.

Melissadishes asked for the recipe for my family's Baked Cornbread Stuffing Recipe from our Thanksgiving Menu

Baked Cornbread Stuffing
3 Jiffy cornbread mixes prepared (To lighten up the mix make it with skim milk and egg whites)
mix all three of these according to directions together and cook in a 9x13 pan

In a food processor combine: 
2 cups finely chopped celery
1/2 cup onion chopped (food processor) together

In a large bowl combine celery and onion mixture with 
1 cup melted butter (The original recipe called for 2 cups. GROSS. We cut it down to 1 cup of butter, but I think you could use 1/4 cup of butter and 1/4 cup natural applesauce because the recipe has some sweetness to it.)
1 cup chicken broth (save the rest of the can in case you need some more liquid)
1 cup sugar free apricot jam
Add in crumbled corn bread, and toss lightly. If needed add more chicken broth you want it to be moist.
Spray two loaf pans. Cover them with foil and bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Remove foil for the last 10 minutes. This recipe feeds a LOT. It's super delicious!!

Holly asked about the applecore I got for Christmas.

Here are some closeup photos...
 The Applecore is a product that my dad found for me to keep my headphone cords manageable. I ran with it today and the jury is still out on my decision. Because of the jacket I was wearing I tucked it into part of my jacket, and I don't feel like I had the full effect. I need to give it some more test runs to decide...I'll let you know. 
I can tell your right now that these Skull Candy headphones from Target are my favorite things EVER. I like my music loud. (I know I'll be deaf in like 5 years...but it pumps me up!)

I also got an email about the way I lace my running shoes... Sorry for the repeat on the kankle-brace photo, but you asked for it...
The wonderful man at the running store that I get my shoes from laced them like this for me for the following reasons...
- By taking the tie pressure back to the ankle there it allows for more room in the toe box, which to me is more comfortable.
- Stops your toes from sliding forward. This is key for distance running. I've never had a problem with black toenails. I'm sorry if you have...yikes.
- More ankle support, which is real good for me right now.
- It looks really cool.

I don't know if it makes an HUGE amount of difference, but I've always tied mine like this, and I like it! Do you tie your shoes any special way, or am I just weird? Don't answer that if it's the latter. ;)

Meg asked how I get the words/descriptions on my photos. I use Photoshop! If you want more info on that email me and I can give you more of a step by step tutorial!!  

Hopefully that answers some of your questions! I love them, so keep them coming!I hope you're having an AWESOME week!

I have something like the "applecore" It's purple and shaped like a man, lol.

I love it. Though I do have to tuck under my shirt, because it bounces and bugs me. ANything that bounces, including my hair, bugs me though.

Oh my, what a post chock full of ideas, especially the way you lace your running shoes. It makes so much sense.

Thanks for singing by "my place." I'll be back!

Before I got photoshop I used powerpoint or even paint to add text to photos!

thanks for the recipe! Dan wont eat it, but I will. He's weird with things being sweet, especially anything with cornbread or veggies. I on the other hand LOVE things like that!

I dig the shoe lacing and you know what, i never noticed in other photos that it wasn't the tradtional way!

Howdy! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it's new to me.
Nonetheless, I'm definitely happy I found it and I'll be book-marking and checking back often!
