My very first post!

Hello Readers!

So, I figured I'd jump on the blogging bandwagon. I'm still working out the kinks but hopefully should be fully functional soon :)

A little about me - My name is Elizabeth (Eli, to my friends) and I live in West Miami. I have a love-hate relationship with this city. The weather is great most of the time, though not really cold often enough for my taste. It's over-crowded and the traffic is ridiculous. I love living in a big, vibrant city where there is always something to do, but sometimes crave a quieter, laid-back lifestyle. Maybe someday, when I can convince my family to come with me.

Somehow I was lucky enough to end up married to the most wonderful, understanding,
kind guy I know. There is nothing I can't tell him. It doesn't hurt that he's tall, dark and handsome, either.

We have a spunky little silky terrier named Chewbacca, who likes to bark at bugs and brooms and other harmless objects. I am secretly convinced that he fully understands me, and but for the lack of vocal cords, would be able to carry a more intelligent conversation with me than many people I know.

I'm a legal assistant. For now. This is not a career for me, only a job. I know plenty who have chosen to stay in this field for their whole lives, but not many that are happy. I figure when the right career finds me, I'll know it.

My husband is a chef and everything he makes is pretty awesome. I'm lucky, I know.

My favorite pastimes? Reading. Working on the great American novel. Baking (especially cupcakes... see Sugarcups, my cupcake blog, for pictures of my goodies). I'm a TV junkie, and not ashamed of it. I'm a hopeless fan-girl, and love all the usual suspects - Harry Potter, Twilight, True Blood, Lost. I love music, have an unhealthy obsession with my playlists, and could listen to Muse and Ray LaMontagne all day and not get bored.

My dislikes? Oh, the usual. Liars. Hypocrites. Mosquitos. Bad hair days. Anchovies.

An important tidbit about today - It is my husband's 28th birthday! Happy birthday baby!

So, that's just a little glimpse into my life. Hopefully this year will bring me lots of exciting experiences to write about.

Tata for now!
