My good friend Audrey from Life as Louse tagged me in on The Sunshine Blogger Award. It’s not like a real award, where balloons fall from the ceiling and you get an oversized trophy. Nope. Not that kind of award. More like you get to answer lots of questions about yourself, ‘cuz apparently these sunshine people are nosy. Super, super nosy!
I’m not proud of this fact. Actually I’m really, really, really pissed off about it because it’s my fault. I dropped the ball. Me. First by not watching what I ate, then progressively eating more and more, followed by not working out. The resulting weight gain shouldn’t be a surprise but it’s still a disappointment. Worse, the blame lands solely at my feet. And you know how I deal with my emotions, especially bad ones, I eat them.
I’m in a mood. A silly mood. Okay, not really. I’m actually feeling grumpy but I want to feel silly and lighthearted and goofy. Grumpy Cat may amuse me, although Max is still the feline that reigns supreme around here, I don’t like being cranky. So whenever I turn grumpy and no one wants to listen to me whine about dumb stuff (like Max puking last Saturday), I go to Pinterest and look at animals and memes. Obviously, I am easily amused.
Back in my mindless spending days, I never gave much thought about what I purchased. If I wanted/needed it and had the money, I bought it. In a nutshell, my entire shopping thought process was a bad one. I was a huge emotional shopper, and my stress and boredom led me to the mall every weekend. My closet overflowed, my heart still felt empty and my frustration grew because I had nothing of real value or substance. And therein lies the rub. I was using my money on meaningless things because it had no purpose, leaving me adrift.
Easter is fast approaching so I thought now was a great time to share some of my favorite recipes since you’re likely fine-tuning your holiday menu. And I’ll be honest — originally I intended to share a new recipe for Easter today but … well, let’s just say I wasn’t overly impressed and I don’t share recipes that leave me feeling meh. I only share awesome recipes. Well, awesome to me at least!
My friend Jana had another edition of Three Things and I cannot help but play along. Sure, sure, maybe I didn’t have another post for today but still … I’d have found time to join the fun because you can never know too much about someone. This is a lie. I most definitely believe you can know too much about someone!
