New Here

Not sure if you noticed but my blog is different. Hopefully you found it ok.

After the Central Florida Blogger Conference, one of the points I took away was that going to your own domain and switching to WordPress was the way to go. I had been thinking about doing it for awhile but that was the final push. The site is still going to get a bit of a facelift and I will be adding to it as (if) I figure out what I doing. - You know who else put his friends into circles? Dante.


(Yes, I’m on Google Plus. No, I do not know how to use it or exactly what the point is.)

J had a class tonight so I usually do a quick dinner. I picked this up at the grocery store on Monday.


After I read the back and saw this.


That is a lot of good stuff in something that is ready to eat and only a few bucks for the bag. I am not a huge fan of coleslaw, so I wanted to try something a little bit different.

Mediterranean Broccoli Slaw

  • One tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • A few handfuls of broccoli slaw
  • One tablespoon of diced and rinsed capers
  • 1/4 of a cup of sliced kalamata olives
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
  • Salt to taste

Stir all the ingredients together.


Tangy, olivey, and really quick. I asked J to try some as he was leaving and he kept shoveling it into his mouth.

If you read one (other) blog post today, please read about Emily’s Ironman Lake Placid race report. It is inspirational and really entertaining. As someone who is going to start training for their first half (next week!), reading a race report like this leaves me in awe.

  1. I’ve been wanting to switch over to WP for a while and finally set up an account. Then, With transferring from TypePad to WP I became completely overwhelmed. Do I start over? Do I try to transfer everything? Any tips would be great!

    The recipe looks tasty. I just read Emily’s race report and like you was completely in awe.

  2. I know what you mean about being overwhelmed! I attempted to move things over myself, realized I had no clue what I was doing, and then decided to enlist some professional help. I just wish I had done it sooner and would have saved myself the time I spent trying to do something I did not have the time, or even the inclination, to learn.

    I contacted Ryan at Revive My Blog ( and he was a huge help. Would recommend if you are not technically inclined and want to bring your readers with you.

    Now I just have to learn how to get the blog to look how I want.
