Feb 28, 2014 - Life is Marylicious!

Today, I finally bought the domain name of my blog!  Yay!!!

Thanks to a creative and productive brainstorming session with GL over dinner, I got the idea to combine my name with a meaningful word for my blog name!  GL had initially suggested "maryvelous" - the combination of Mary and Marvelous...  while I do agree that Mary is Marvelous ^_*  that word combination sounded too much like a tongue twister... 

So, after more brainstorming by myself, I came up with the idea of "Marylicious"!!!  The combination of Mary and Delicious is just perfect for my blog, since I will be blogging mostly about food!  Plus, "Marylicious" can be used as an adjective to describe my adventures while traveling!

While I was thrilled with my own creative genius, I knew I had to contain my excitement until I am the owner of the actual URL...  So, I went to and started typing "marylicious" into its search engine...  Imagine my happiness when the list came back and showed that "" was actually available!!!  

Sure, I was a bit bummed to find out that "" had been snatched up already... but since I am writing a personal blog and not starting a business, the ".me" extension actually works much better!  So, obviously I bought "" without hesitation!  Woohoo!!!  

I was so over the moon that I immediately announced the purchase to my siblings, and of course GL ^_^ Everyone was in agreement that "" was a genius idea!  Although, Pharbs did indicate that using "marylicious" alone could lead readers to think that the site is an adult-material site...  that's a valid concern...  but I think the content would clear that up very quickly ^_*

So, now that I have a great name for my blog, I really need to get started with the actual blogging... 

Let the Marylicious blogging adventure begin!  Woohoo!!!
