Even though I am currently a lady of leisure, I have somehow managed to jam pack my weekly schedule. Fortunately, this schedule consists of mostly things I want to do. Though I’m quickly realizing how easy it is to prioritize these fun activities over some of the basic chores I should be doing on a daily basis. But, there are justifications for every activity:
I’m back in the kitchen and it feels so good. Cooking is easy without measuring cups and spoons, but baking…not so much. I managed to survive by taste testing many different Swiss chocolate bars.
Which is also why I need to start baking again. But with a healthy twist. I have a wedding dress to fit into soon and just like every other girl in my position, I want to tone up for the occasion. I can’t handle the newest Paleo or Whole30 diets, since I simply don’t have the desire or willpower. But, I have strong beliefs in the power of good ‘ole calorie counting. Then I can still have my desserts and French fries, just in moderation.
After two months of living out of a suitcase, we were ready to get our stuff back. We moved into our “permanent” apartment last week which meant the moving company could finally deliver our things! These things came into our apartment on this really cool lift through our balcony. Did I mention we have a balcony? Well, we do. Two actually. It’s pretty exciting.
Another Christmas season calls for another cupcake Christmas tree! Last year’s tree went over so well in person and on the interwebs that I had to make it again; this time with some new ornaments and garlands. Surprisingly enough, the tree survived transit to my brother’s house for a delicious potluck, with bacon wrapped turkey and all.
