New car, green garden and guacamole!
I know I begin every post the same... "I haven't written in a while" and all that.  So I'm going to skip all that and go straight to the post! I got a car!  My job at Target is only .7 miles away from the house so I haven't really NEEDED a car and I am and ...

Pensacola pizza and Italian tomato sauce
The other day whiled we were picking up some things after I got done with work I was super ready to go home when Peter said that we had to swing by the hospital to pick something up for his mom.  I was suspicious because 1) It was like 7:30 at night 2) He k...

Garden progress and Bruschetta
So despite having no job and no car (I have inquired about both though), I have been up to a lot lately.  I planted my garden, made my own laundry detergent, cooked a few new dishes and even made up one of my own. Peter has been busy beautifying the outside...

Balsamic Tofu Burgers and Gardening
I feel like it's finally fall here in Penacola.  The air has a coolness to it, and it isn't so humid that every inhale feels like you're drinking a glass of water.  I have a recipe for this week!  Most days, I just make up meals but I never take pictures or...

Ci vediamo, Napoli
On Tuesday, I'm moving back to America for good.  Since the O'Brien family landed in Venice in June of 2002, Italy has been my home.  We spent a good four years on the Army base in Vicenza.  My sister went to the same elementary school that my grandmother t...

A short tribute to Italian food
So again, I have fallen behind on the blogging.  It's not that I don't want to blog, because I do, and I think about it all of the time.  I think it's mostly because most of the stuff that I do, I don't think anyone would want to hear about. I wasn't sticki...

Palafox Market, Around Pensacola and my fave stir fry recipe!
Yes I know I haven't written a blog post in a while.  My intentions are always good, but I never end up writing one or never write enough to constitute a full post.  This week I have finally done it! I have accumulated enough experiences to share with whoev...

Happy New Year!
So it has been MONTHS since I wrote on here.  I'd like to say it was because I am just too busy, but in reality I don't have that much going on.  I'm always doing something, but it's not exactly news worthy.  However, I've realized that no one's life is cra...

First weeks in Pensacola
I was nervous to come to Pensacola.  If I had to think of a US city to live in that was completely different from any other experience that I have ever had, Pensacola would be it.  This isn't the first time I've lived on my own, but when I did it was in the...

My Makeup Routine
Peter's gone and I am super depressed.  It's only going to be a little more than two weeks away from each other, but it's still sad and I do not like it.  A lot of my friends are military wives so I know that two weeks is basically nothing but I'm still all...

Weekend in Ischia
So I haven't blogged in a while.  This is because 1) I haven't done anything too interesting since I got back from Budapest, 2) I haven't had a lot of free time and 3) I wrote an entire blog and it didn't save and I as so frustrated by the whole thing that ...
