  1. Hi Christina! I've finally had a few minutes to come check out your blog (found you through alison) - love that you say "What the FLUFF?" - that totally cracks me up! I added you to my Google Reader so I can keep up on your blog. Looking forward to reading more!

  2. I am totally adopting "What the fluff?!

  3. I hate slow walkers and talkers too! Well hate is a strong word ;) I guess strongly dislike is appropriate. Cute About Me section :)

  4. Hi! Visiting your blog for the first time and I'm in love. I haven't uttered the words, "What the fluff" yet but "What the french toast" is said on the reg. Girl, your hair is beautiful! Looking forward to more posts!

  6. Hi, just found your blog and it's so cute :) MY mom's last name means "the green" in Italian, haha. :D

  7. Hi,

    I found your blog thru another chocolate lover's blog. I have a sweet tooth and love desserts and chocolate. You have a cute blog and I love all the colors. I'm all about bright colors.

    "What the fluff?" makes me think of that gum commercial when they said, I think this is how it goes "What the french toast?", both funny.

  10. Very nice blog! Hope to read more of your posts!

  11. I love that you are as obsessed with Chick-fil-a as much as I once was. It was my favorite place to eat and I always secretly wanted to work there. Now I don't eat meat, but I've seriously considering having their nuggets as my first non-veg meal if I ever go back. Have you had the special sauce - LOVE!

    PS - Your rugelach recipe looks fab. I'm glad I found your blog!

  14. I love your blog already! And seriously, correct me on my grammar! I like a little constructive criticism when it's warranted. :)

    By the way, I'm so jealous that you live in SC. We go to Hilton Head Island in the summers and it's like heaven on earth!

  15. "What the French Toast?"....is my answer to "What the Fluff?", lol!

  16. I love how you put slow walkers/talkers as one of dislikes in the About section! I am the same way and most people don't understand that about me! Looking forward to reading more. :)

  20. I have no idea how I found your blog...I think it is like Facebook..I was just clicking away for hours and found you :) I am so glad I did because I just love reading all of your wonderful ideas and get jealous wishing I was a college student again. I have a blog http://shreddedinsix.blogspot.com/ that I just started this year. I have been looking at your site for ways to improve mine :) I have a ?...How do you get the word out about your blog? At first I started doing this just as an "online journal" for myself. Then, I started spending more and more time on it and started taking more pride in the quality of my work. Now, I want to share with the world, but don't know where to start...ideas? Oh, I also can't see a place to comment on specific posts which is why I wrote here...Keep up your good work, I enjoy reading it while I should be working ;)

  21. LAH-VING your blog!!!! Oh my goodness, you are too funny! I found you thru Ensley (haughtybynature) and I'm so glad! Totally adding "what the fluff" to my daily speak.. AMAZING! And i agree with you on the chocolate thing :)

  22. Hey Christina!
    I tried asking you this on formspring (?) but the technology was too much for me and I don't think it went through.
    Either way, I love your blog! I am moving to Charleston soon and am looking to join a gym...can you point me in the right direction? I definitely want somewhere clean (esp the showers!) not tooo crowded, and a non creeper environment...because even though I am all for babe watching, it's not a two way street haha.
    I'll be living downtown but am willing to drive a few miles for the right place- I am dedicated to my gymlationship :)

  23. What the fluff?
    I'm stealing it.
    Unless you'll hate me forever.
    Just landed on your blog today .. Me likey!

  24. Glad I found your blog! I live in California but i'm from SC and chucktown is my favorite place in the world. Loving your recipes and eats. I'll be following :)

  25. I just read your guest post on Une Vie Saine..loved it! :) Nice blog!

    I love to bake cookies too! :)

  26. Ew, I hate red onions too. Once I was watching this show on MTV...where the parents set their kids up on dates. Anywho, the son's current girlfriend ate red onions like apples...oh my gosh, made me gag. They are just too strong for my liking.

  27. Hi Christina! I am so glad you stopped by my blog so I could find yours, it's fantastic!
    I love that you say "what the fluff" that is completely amazing :)

    I'm moving to Charleston in June and couldn't be ANY more excited- I love hearing how much people like you, who have lived there for years, still love the place!!

    If you ever have blogger meet-ups or just want a new chick to show around/eat healthy stuff with/go to chik-fil-a with, I'm SO down! I don't know too many people but I can't wait to get out and about!
