I Cried In Front Of People!

Ok, so it wasn't one of those long, ugly, dramatic cries, but I shed some tears. Usually I keep my emotions confined to the walls of my house so this was new for me!

My lovely coworkers (who I also call my friends because they are the bomb like that) hosted my first baby shower this past weekend. It was really hard for me to stay in my lane and just let them do it. I'm so used to being a member of the planning committee. But I let go and let them have full control! I was so surprised when I got there. I had no idea what the theme was. They chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle! It was so awesome and like nothing I had ever seen before! You've all read the book right?

When I walked in, I wanted to cry. But held it in trying not to look too much like a wuss. It was the most amazing time!
Me and My Fabulous Hostesses!

Notice the balloons look like the caterpillar!

There was this DIY Onesie station and Amy in all of her fabulousness ordered The Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric so there were some that were customized for the theme!

Then all of the food was the food that the caterpillar ate in the book! It was so creative!

This was an awesomely amazing shower and it was for me! The ladies did a fabulous job and I can't say THANK YOU enough! I got some awesome gifts too! People are still talking about the shower and I'm glad everyone had a great time!

Thank you again ladies! A very special thanks to the Grossberg family for hosting in your home! And the tears came when I was opening gifts, but I tried to keep them hidden. But this was such a kind gesture that I didn't mind them flowing...this once!

For the favors, I wanted to do something homemade and something that if it were given to me I would like. Since there were so many hostesses, I decided to do cupcakes and body scrub (both things that smell or taste delicious). The cupcakes are always a hit and so far I've had a few good reviews on the scrub!

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

This was a big hit! It was my first tim…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…
