Last night, I totally let my 19-year old self come out of its grave. I’m typically very modest when it comes to happy hours and I usually only have one drink. Last night I had three and if you know anything about me, I’m really light-weight and I don’t drink often, at all. I really think the $5 sparkling wine special during happy hour is what lured me in. Pretty much the worst temptation you could give me. I’m a sucker for sparkling wine and to give me a glass at $5…yeah, I’ll take you up on that offer ANY day. Oh man, I really haven’t felt like that in a while. The room was spinning and I was just blabbing away. I don’t remember half the things that came out of my mouth. Well, I sort of do. I know I was being obnoxiously loud and cursing like a sailor and talking with my hands too much. I probably looked like Giada on fast forward. Bobbing my head around and moving my hands all over the place. I was with my manager and coworker & we had a rough week and we were just decompressing. No harm, right? How I wish today were Saturday…

I was seriously contemplating last night not even writing this blog post. I was sloshed and lying in bed and I felt great, but lazy. Super lazy. Like I just wanted to pass out into a deep sleep. Alas, I decided to get on my computer and write this blog post. I’m not even sure if any of this makes sense right now or if I’m offending anyone by talking about being drunk and drinking too much during happy hour. I apologize if it’s making you uncomfortable, but I swear it’s the sparkling wine in my blood that’s still yapping away and making my fingers type.

I definitely don’t encourage you to do this, ever, nor am I going to let myself get like this again (don’t quote me on this, I love a good time, haha), but it really does bring me back to the carefree days of college and how much I miss being at school. I’m not saying I miss the excessive drinking, I’m saying I just miss being worry-free and not having anxiety over the petty stuff. No wonder why being an adult is no fun, you just worry all the time.

Ha, and speaking about worrying all the time, I’m having passport issues…AGAIN. I’m going to the Bahamas for a press trip in 3 weeks and I sent in my old passport earlier this month to get my name changed on it. Well, they didn’t start processing it til June 17th and it says it’ll take about 4-6 weeks to process. I seriously hope they’re lying about this and that it’s just a huge timeframe they give so you don’t yell at them if you don’t receive yours after a month has passed. I’m praying I get mine before my trip, but if I don’t get anything and it’s a week before, I’m going to have to freaking go to the passport agency and get it done there. Why do I have the most horrible luck with government identification documents AND my name change? Argh. I can’t imagine getting divorced and having to change my name all over again. Or getting re-married and doing it all over again. When I was at the social security administration last month, the lady said she was doing this girl’s name change and it showed on her marriage certificate that she had been married three times. THREE TIMES. I’m not judging – I’m just thinking about all the annoying governmental paperwork and processes she had to go through, lol!

Okay, so done with my sob story about drinking and wishing I were young again..onto carbs. Delicious and HEALTHY carbs that you can make for this upcoming Wednesday. What’s this Wednesday you say? Well, this year is going by so freaking fast that you probably didn’t realize this holiday was sneaking up on you. Hint: 4th of July. With all that you’ll be eating at your cookout, this is one carb that you’ll be thankful for at your party. Greek yogurt is my BFF. Fo’ sho.

Easy and absolutely great tasting potato salad! I added a little white wine vinegar for added tangy taste.

Made this as a side for my lunches at work last week. Absolutely. Delicious. I subbed the whole wheat Dijon mustard with more regular Dijon, and did about a third of a cup of mayo and 2/3 Greek yogurt... Didn't plan my grocery store trip very well. Making it the right way this week. The dill, green onion and Greek yogurt go so well together. Best vegetarian potato salad I've ever had. Lasts about 5 days in the fridge, gets a bit funky after that FYI.

Can’t anyone post a recipe online without giving their entire life story along with it? Here’s a little tip for you: Keep it simple and to the point. Nobody reads the adventures of you; we all just skip down to the recipe so don’t waste your time writing about stuff that nobody wants to read.

@Julie Wampler, that guy is being rude about it, but it is pretty silly to have a long story attached to a recipe instead of posting your stories and recipes separately. 99% of people google "potato salad," to get here, not "Julie Wampler's blog," so of course everyone is skipping to the bottom. Don't you find it annoying, when you look for a recipe elsewhere, that you have to dig through unrelated information to get what the link said it would be?

Oh okay. Thank you SO MUCH for telling me how to use my blog. I mean, I wouldn't have known if it weren't for you!!! Here's a little tip for you: stop wasting your time trolling blogs; we all ignore your unsolicited advice and thoughts and keep doing what we love anyway. From Wikipedia: A blog (a truncation of the expression "weblog") is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (posts). Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject or topic, ranging from politics to sports. Others function as more personal online diaries, and others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company.
