Remember when I used to blog all the time? Yeah, me neither. Life has gotten so busy, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, so I need to find a way to make this part of my life again because I enjoy it so much! I’ve got some recipes and books reviews already created to show you, so expect me to step up my game at least a little in the coming months!
So, what have I been doing you might be asking. Well, first of all, I got engaged! I’m really excited, and I know that is absolutely not an excuse to have slacked on here, but planning a wedding does take up way more time then I ever imagined it would. (I know, cry me a river.)
I’ve also been hard at work at my two jobs and night school! All of which are going well. I’ve completely learned the language of stenography and am now just building my speed. KWR/HRUFB/T/FPLT/KWR/PH/SOE/TKPWHRAD/KWR/STKAOEUD/D/TAO/TKAO/T/FPLT. <—— That says “I love it. I am so glad I decided to do it.” See what I mean about learning a language?
The interior designer I work for opened a retail space downtown which has been a huge learning experience. I’m her only employee, so you can see here what I helped set up. I also helped with setting up the online shop. I’m also still working at Gregory Paul’s selling his amazing food. If you live at the beaches and have not tried it yet, you are missing out! I’m not trying to make excuses here… ok maybe a little.
Having so much to juggle has definitely made me less creative in the kitchen. On nights I have school, I stand by my old crock pot and casserole recipes. It’s too risky to come home after a 14-hour day and not be positive that I have a delicious meal ahead of me because I tried a Pinterest experiment. I also work for a business that makes fresh prepared meals that I just have to put in my oven when I’m ready to eat. It takes a bit out of the incentive to cook. I do still LOVE to cook though, so I will be trying more things in the coming weeks.
Two of my best friends had babies since the last time I blogged, and I can’t resist showing them off here!
A couple of weeks ago, we also took some time to expand the garden for the spring! I cannot wait for it to start growing like last year! We got so spoiled last year by all the fresh veggies, so I’m hoping for luck this year too. We have tomatoes, green onions, peppers, eggplant, broccoli, herbs, strawberries, beans and carrots just to name a few. Oh, and I also insisted on getting a tree that grows cocktail lemons and limes. If I’m going to drink alcohol, might as well be as healthy as possible about it, right?
So, long story short, I will do my very best to post more regularly in the coming weeks. I know you have no reason to believe this, but just check back in and you will see!
