Changing it up a bit.

As you can tell I've changed things up a bit. I tend to do that. I like an idea, I wear it out, and I pick a new one. Honestly, I haven't gone back to college yet because the only thing that sticks for me is writing. Like in a journal. Or on a blog. Or a status update on the Twitter.

Some examples of my not being able to pick something, anything really:
At one point in time I was really into cooking. I mean, I still cook. I just thought my calling in life was to work in a kitchen. If you could see my kitchen now, you'd know that did not last long.
Then, I thought I'd be a party planner. But my problem there is staying within a budget. More specifically, my own budget. I have three kids and one on the way, plus a husband. That's 5 parties per year that I plan and carry out on my own. I just over spend. A little. Anyway, I love doing it for my family, but for other people? That is a bit more complicated.

My point is that even though I'm a wife and a mom and many other things, I'm still figuring out who I am. I am filling in the blanks.
Today, I was a fashionista. Well, not really. I just had to buy a new pair of pants because I literally wear a pair out before I'll buy more.
Tomorrow, I shall be a baker. Because the brand spankin-new KitchenAid I got for my birthday is calling my name.

As is that recipe for Minny's chocolate pie. (The genuine recipe they used for the film The Help.)

Who are you today?
What inspired you today?
What will you do tomorrow?


  1. OMG, yes. I think I drive my husband crazy with all the new hats I try on. I was a teacher, then sold Mary Kay (I did NOT do well with that! But who doesn't love makeup?) I wanted to start martial arts make all natural baby food. If things didn't cost money I would start a new business every day! But I have found a few things I've stuck to these days and I can't believe they are sticking. Writing, Powerlifting, and making aprons. It's pretty nice to exercise so many different parts of my soul:)
    But I KNOW I will keep trying things out.

  2. How did the pie turn out? I know Minnie was supposed to make the best pie ever (at least, except for that last one..) so I'd love to hear how that recipe was.

    1. It was soooo good. I only had Hershey's cocoa powder, and it isn't my favorite, but the pie was still super yummy. I think if I had a different brand it would be even better. I had two deep dish crusts for the recipe and had enough filling left over to make a few little pies. I think I ate most of it... {:


Leave me a comment, tell me a story, or tell me I'm pretty. Just play nice.
