This is not a cutesy blog. I hope.

Although I am a dedicated/addicted blog-stalker, the idea of writing my own blog seemed out of the question. I mean, let's face it - how could I join the ranks of Oh Happy Day and The NieNie Dialogues? They're out of this world. My life, clearly, has nothing to offer. However, after several people pointing out the complete hypocrisy of my predatory existence (feed on the words of others - never offering anything in return), and a sharp challenge directed specifically at myself (here), I succumbed, although, being the procrastinator that I am, I put the inevitable off for a while, claiming "I haven't thought of a genius title! A blog is nothing without a witty and smack-dab-on-the-mark title." The ideas for the title were coming, mainly based on bad puns on my name which have developed through the ages, but none seemed right. You can't call a blog "Bad to the Bon" unless you want a connotation of harleys and black leather. Rippin' Sweet sounds juvenile, though appropriate. Bonsai suggests that you have wisdom regarding small, long-lived trees, which is anything but true, and "twelve stops and home" is too obscure, kind of random, and possible copyrighted. Conundrum. Clearly. The list goes on. "My husband thinks he can cook" implies that he cannot and Bon Losee says too much about hair (mine doesn't deserve comment). Finally, bon's bonbons presented itself. Or should it be bonnie's bonbons? Or possibly bonbon's bonbons? And is it too cutesy? I'll eat my textbooks before I accuse myself of being cute or sy. In short (caveat here), if you are looking for recipes on how to make delicious treats such as the ones pictured atop the page, look elsewhere (and then link your findings to me, because dang, those look good). If your expectations run more along the lines of little bits of wisdom all tied up with a bow, like pieces of candy dropping from my mouth, you're still in the wrong place. This is simply a way for me to record the things that I love, am into, think are interested in, or have been mulling over.
A list of my loves, both large and small.

What a beautiful picture. If he didn't sit by me everyday I would print the picture out. In fact, when you guys graduate and leave that's what I'll do.

Bonnie, post some more stuff! Sheesh.

I guess it is pretty awesome being married to a rock star. But you're married to an opera star which I guess is just as cool.

HAHA!! Bonnie! You rock. Actually the sharp challenge wasn't intended to be so directly directed at you! Oh, I hope you don't hate me. I was just sort of brain-spewing about my own innumerable insecurities. But, I have to say, I'm glad it inspired you, because I love your blog. You are a great writer.

I love this... I am so excited! and I love oh happy day. I didn't read nie nie until the crash (although my aunt and uncle babysat their kids when they lived in new jersey).
