  • Food, Glorious Food!

    I don’t really check this xanga and have email alerts turned off, so if you want to get in touch with me, please contact me through my personal blog.  Thanks!


    I’m back from my 5 days in LA!  The time just flew by because I was so busy taking care of my parents’ sick pets and running errands.  I didn’t really have an appetite unfortunately because I was so stressed out, but my parents still managed to get me to eat a decent amount.  If I ate as much as they wanted me to, there would be twice as many pics!
