  Finding what you're looking for
I'm not sure if anyone still swings back by here, but I thought I would pop back in. Just in case anyone was missing the puns, corny jokes, cooking disasters, and all around mediocracy that is my blog. So where, you may want to know, has Punky been all this time? Why has she abandoned her little piece of land in cyberspace? The answer is so simple its silly, you may even chuckle at how ridiculously simple it really is...I've been really freakin busy.

Last June, Funkbobito popped the question, and after 4.5 years of very patiently waiting (and constant hinting) of course I said yes. So began the journey that is wedding planning. Next time I do this, I will hire someone else to do it all (and no, I don't really plan on there being a next time). Well, after hours and hours of picking colors, flowers, dresses, fonts, table cloths, etc, etc, etc, I wasn't much up for cooking, and being that this is a cooking blog, I thought you all would rather not hear the details of frozen pizza, take-out, and my beloved Kraft mac and cheese.

In November, I followed my life long dream to work a crappy job and accepted a promotion at work, I'm a supervisor now. No really, I like my job, it just isn't at all what I thought I would be doing and definitely not in the field I was hoping to work in. Oh well, you gotta survive right? My schedule got much more irregular and once again, cooking suffered. It was no longer something I did for fun, I now did it because I was tired, wanted to be off my feet sooner than later, and really didn't care what I ate. Enter canned soup, salad bars, and lots of eggs.

Well, all this craziness had to wind down at some point, and it finally did. On April 22, Funkbobito and I finally got hitched. He was definitely what I'd been looking for. The wedding was great and I can't believe I pulled it all off. Our photographer has a blog that has a few sample pics on it. What a fun day, can't wait to see all our proofs. Then it was off to Mexico for our honeymoon. Now that was fun. Our resort was gourmet all inclusive so the food was spectacular. Yummy.

On a sad note. About a month before the wedding, my sweet Gidget passed away. She had been sick for about a week and was showing improvement. I was going to take her in to the vet so he could check her and her heart gave out right before we were leaving the house. She was my sweetie for 16.5 years and I miss her everyday. Its still weird, over a month later to come home and her not be here. But Funkbobito and I are hoping to get a puppy sometime this summer.

Well that's about all I've got, hopefully there is still someone out there.
Congratulations on your wedding! Although I am very sad to hear about Gidget. Its hard to let go of the pets you have loved so much. I hope your life starts to balance out a little and let you have some time to play in the kitchen.
So, I'm not a food blogger, but a food blogger wannabe, but I have you on my links list and have been checking out your blog every now and then to see if there were any updates.

Congrats on the wedding!

I'm sorry to hear about your Gidget.
Congrats on the wedding you two!

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of Gidget! =(
Congrats on getting hitched!

I too am sorry to hear about Gidget.
Completely understand your not being around (I just got married in April, so I REALLY understand).

Sorry about Gidget.
