bits o' home

Bits and pieces of my surroundings. And nope, those marathon number tags aren't mine; they're my sissy's who is way cooler than I am. It feels nice to be back home, and I can't stop taking pictures of everything new and everything I've missed. I've been taking it (a lot) easy since I got here, just basically being a homebody, which is something I really needed. Working from home can be quiet, but I always have a list of things to do there. Now, the only thing on my list is "chill, yo."

I spent a few hours rummaging through storage, looking for things I may have forgotten to tote with me in Illinois. Namely all my crafty items and Lord of the Rings paraphernalia. I found the latter, but sadly, all the rest have been given away over the years. Lots have changed since I was home, but I'll tell you what hasn't-- these delicious corn fritters!

It may sound ridiculous, but as soon as got here, I made a point of procuring these amazing morsels and the sweet honey butter spread that makes each bite better than sex. Like, for realz. In fact, I've decided to reward myself with one after I write this post. I've tried fritters in tons of other places in the US and NOTHING comes close to Alaskan corn fritters. And now, please excuse me while I stuff myself with goodness.

  5. I didn't know your family home is in Alaska. That's so exciting. I hope you maybe get the chance to talk about how your family is in Alaska and you ended up moving to Illinois.

  11. Oh wow, I didn't know Alaska was home for you! Having just spent the weekend "back home" at my parents' house, I know how nice it is to just chill out and visit with your family and not really have to do/worry about anything for a few days. I hope you're enjoying every minute!
