You’re Invited To The Pity Party. There Will Be Pizza, Sleeping, And Red Velvet Trifle

I am straight up cranky today, y’all. That may have just been the first time I’ve ever said “ya’ll.” What’s with me today?! It’s a cold, grey Sunday, and I am not looking forward to returning to the blah life tomorrow. Believe me, I get it, life is what you make of it, but sometimes, it just gets tiring trying to make it all the time. Wa- wa- wahhhhhhhhh. Okay, I’ll knock it off with the pity party. In order to cut it out, I’m going to need some pretty strong self-help samplers, fattening comfort food recipes, and maybe some celebrity gossip. I’ll see what I can do.

  1. I hear you about sometimes getting tired of always trying to ‘make the best of it,’ but I really appreciate your collection of articles. Paula Deen’s recipe looks amazing and the Oprah article is encouraging.

    Your blog is so much fun (and helpful)! Always something new and insightful. I’m trying to be more consistent when it comes to updating my blog, but it seems something always comes up. How do you make the time? Any hints?:)

    1. Thanks for your sweet comments! Truthfully, this blog has become an outlet for my somewhat less than fulfilling “professional” life. My job is pretty mediocre so I find myself looking forward to blogging each night. It’s therapeutic for me. Writing is a passion of mine, as is a lot of “fluffy” subjects like television and music, so I like to keep it light and fun. I spend many a lunch break bookmarking cool things to talk about later on 😉
