falling, wearing, making, smiling, learning

I'm currently falling behind on everything; blog posts, crafts, my etsy shop, letter writing, etc. You name it, I've fallen behind on it. I have to admit, I've gotten lazy ever since last May when I graduated college. It's like my normal routine and my brain just shut off and all I want to do is relax and sit around. When will I snap out of it?

I'm currently wearing lounge shorts and a t-shirt. Oh, and a boho bracelet. 

I'm currently making lunch more often for my fiance and I. The other day I made baked sweet and sour chicken. It was so fudging good.And yesterday I made BBQ chicken cornbread pie. It was really good. 

I'm currently smiling at my fiance's jokes. He makes me laugh all the time! 

I'm currently learning that life is short; enjoy it and live freely. I'm also learning how to network and market my Jamberry Nails business.

craving, cleaning, daydreaming, growing, reading 

I'm currently craving food of all sorts. This year all I want to do is eat. My love of food has grown immensely, which I guess is because I'm going out more with Jose, so I'm trying new foods. Plus, I want to go to culinary school and I've been cooking more.  

I'm currently cleaning my room....slowly. Ok, I admit I haven't kept up with it and I also admit I'm not the best cleaner. But I do it eventually, so that counts right? 

I'm currently daydreaming of autumn! I can't wait for the crisp weather, the leaves changing, the pumpkins, the decor, Halloween, and everything in between. It's funny, back in May and June, I was raving about how I couldn't wait for the summer. I love both seasons, so I'm happy until December. 

I'm currently growing sunflowers, trying to grow tomatoes, strawberries, and an avocado tree. 

I'm currently reading Alphabet Weekends by Elizabeth Noble. It's such a good book! At first I was iffy on it, but I continued it and it's turning out to be really good. It's about 3 different couples; Natalie and Tom, who play a game where they do these different activities that start with the each letter of the alphabet. Lucy and Patrick; Patrick loses his job and Lucy gets fed up with him and starts cheating on him and Anna and Nicholas, Natalie's parents. Anna has depression and Nicholas gets a stroke. I definitely recommend it! Maybe I should start a book series on here? 

I know I've been quiet, I honestly try to keep up with this blog nowadays, but truthfully I have no motivation and I get distracted really easily. Like, I'll start one project, put it down, start something new, and never finish the first one.

Finish These Sentences


When I open the fridge, I always hope I find... something sweet, a snack, and something for lunch. 

My favorite article of clothing is... my corgi shirt. I wear it a lot! 

Last week I was really pissed when...
I don't really remember. I'm sure I was pissed off, but I'm so laid back, I forget about those moments. 

One thing nobody understands about me is... I'm a routine person. If it's out of my routine, I freak out, I panic, and I won't relax until everything is back to the way it was. 

One thing I don't understand is... Oh god, I could go on and on with this one. I don't understand men's mentality, how you can forget your child in the back set of a hot car, math, and tons more. 

The world would be a better place if... there was peace, everyone got along, and everything was FREE. 

If I had a million dollars, I'd... buy a house, a car, new clothes, go on vacation, get married to my fiance, donate some money, and quit my job! 

If I knew I'd die next week, this week I'd.... get married to the love of my life, travel the world, and learn everything I possibly could. 

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be... my weight. I want to be skinnier; I'm tired of being fat. 

Something that can always make me happy is... my fiance, Jose. Oh, and food. Food always makes me happy. 

Something I'll never blog about is... I'm pretty open on here, so nothing's off limits. Ok, I lied; since this is a family friendly blog, talking about my sex life is off limits. It's private and it's going to stay that way. 

If I could go anywhere I would go...
to Europe. More specifically, Ireland, England, Southern Italy, Poland, Germany, and Sweden. Mainly Ireland and England though. 

If I were an animal I would be a ... Elephant? I'm not quite sure, haven't given it much thought.  

A job I've always wanted is... I've always wanted to be an actress, but I have stage fright. 

My idea of a perfect day is...
a WHOLE day (night and day) with my fiance. Since we don't live together at the moment, that'd be perfect. Go to a hotel, stay in with him, order room service, watch TV, cuddle, and do other couple things ;)

Kid Friendly Party Food

Pancake Muffins. Yes, two breakfast foods in one. Fluffy, golden brown, and oh so delicious.

These muffins are great for kids; they can just dip the muffins into the maple syrup but they're also great for parties. You and your friends/family can gather around the table and just eat and dip them.

They're very versatile too. You can add chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts, etc. to the batter. You can cut out the middle and fill it with your favorite fruit compost or other favorite filling. I added raspberry jam and some maple syrup.

All you need to do is make your favorite pancake recipe and fill a muffin tray, either 24 or 12 muffin tray. The recipe I used was a simple and classic. Actually the best recipe I've used for pancakes. The recipe calls for 1/2 to 3/4 cups of milk. I used both amounts, because I found the batter to be dry; it worked out beautifully.

After you make the pancake batter, butter your muffin tray and pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. But remember I used a 12 muffin tray, so adjust the time if you use a 24 muffin tray. After they're golden brown, check if they're done by poking a toothpick or knife in the middle. If it comes out clean, you're good to go. Take them out, let them cool, and put them on a plate. Then you can jazz them up however you want. Again, you can use fruit compost, other type of filling, out just good ol' maple syrup.

That's it! That's how simple it is to make these delicious muffins. Enjoy!

I'm sorry I've sort of neglected this blog. Writers block and no motivation equals no blog posts. I have ideas to write about, but nothing happens. Bare with me please.

watching, wearing, wanting, waiting, winning

I'm currently watching some old TV show that my mom likes. 

I'm currently wearing a pink shirt with comfortable lounge shorts.

I'm currently wanting my own apartment, pancakes (I'm craving them right now), to go shopping, cook, and go to culinary school. 

I'm currently waiting for dinner to be ready, I'm really hungry, I can eat a cow. 

I'm currently winning nothing. I used to enter a ton of giveaway but I haven't entered many lately.

Currently & Announcement

snapping, checking, learning, dropping, saving

I'm currently snapping nothing. 

I'm currently checking job boards online. I lost my job the other day :( Back to square one again.

I'm currently learning it's ok if you lose your job and to cry about it for a day. But after crying for a day, get back up, update your resume, get back onto those job boards, and apply. Oh, and call people back when they offer you a job. I have yet to do that...eek!

I'm currently dropping everything. I dropped my anxiety medication a few days ago, I dropped a fork I was using today, I've dropped my phone, etc. I could go on forever. I've been a klutz. 

I'm currently saving money by being frugal. 

Now for the announcement. 

I'm expanding my blog! I'm including cooking and traveling now. Since I don't travel much, I'm looking for contributing writers for the traveling section. And if you want to contribute to the cooking section, let me know. So, if you're interested leave a comment with your email or shoot me an email at
