Jelly and Jamming

JAM-featured
I like jelly, jamming and puns. (I’m feeling slightly opinionated today. This is my disclaimer.)

I think dieting is bullshit. I am under the belief that my body knows what it needs: I crave it. Then I eat it. Sometimes that might be pineapple for a solid week, sometimes celery for breakfast and pancakes for dinner. As long as I eat lots of colors (no sprinkle doughnuts sadly do NOT count) I feel that I’m in good shape.

COFFEE_FEATURED

Today is a snowy snow day. I thought….what better way to warm up then with a good ‘ol cup of Joe!

There is something about making coffee that I find relaxing and I just wanted to share that relaxing feeling on a snowy day.

What better way to do this than with a party?! Come on guys and gals. Get your party hats on and let’s plan together.

The PickMeUp

PICKMEUP lIST

Sometimes life gets messy and my life currently is: A. Mess.

So, it’s time for me to start cleaning it up. In order to get through the chaos, I have to assign myself “projects” just like I’m back in middle school – where learning was something that is forced upon you because you had no interest in doing it if you were left to your own devices.

Spring-Cleaning out Jars

LIDS_featured

I woke up this weekend like a bear coming out of hibernation. I awoke to the wonderful Spring sunshine pouring in through the curtains and walked into a nice living room full of light. Birds were chirping all around just like Snow White.

Then I walk into the kitchen, my favorite room in the apartment. But all I could see was MESS. Jars stacked onto jars. All of my dry foods sitting around and my cabinets barely closing because they are packed to the gills!
