We had a great Christmas, with lots of memories and a few too many helpings of the Pioneer Woman’s iced cinnamon rolls. Seriously, the woman makes me look like a gourmet chef. Which is almost like making me look like a laid-back flight attendant. Unlikely to say the least.
Might I say here that if you do not own this cookbook, you are living as a mere shadow of the person you could be with 11 more cups of butter and a room full of people who think you hung the moon? Seriously, y’all. There isn’t a bad one in the bunch.
Life is good…
I have been soaking up all the time I can get with Charlotte, lamenting every morning that she looks older and that soon she is going to be off to college and in love with some blue-eyed boy. What can I say? It’s the season for melodrama I am most definitely the worst mommy blogger on the planet because I have posted next to NO pictures of my sweet little one! I apologize, and I will do so as soon as I remember where my connecter-doohicky-thing is. Because I am a technical guru. And also, a pilot.
In other news, I have been working like a fiend on my book, which is due next month. I know that some of you must be praying for me because I am making progress!!! Thank you SO much and please continue to ask the Lord for favor, as it has really exhausted me. It is a beautiful mess of God and me right now, hopefully way more of Him. I have about 38,000 words as of tonight (But who’s counting? Oh wait. Me. Every three sentences I check it again.) and I need to have 60,000 by the end of January. Which, incidentally, is A LOT.
I am going to make a New Year’s Resolution this year, which I hardly ever do because I tend to like making them more than keeping them and then it just leads to lost motivation instead of weight. I am still fighting to get the baby weight off, but she’s worth it That, however, is not my resolution, because I haven’t decided I like my skinny jeans as much as the cinnamon rolls.
BUT, I am really going to try and be better about posting on here. I love the community and I have just been so busy with writing that when I come here I have no more thoughts left other than “need coffee…” and I just don’t know that this makes for great posts. Regardless, I love hearing from you all and I am going to get more on the ball and post more often (and maybe less deep for awhile while I work on the book…). I know this doesn’t affect your daily life, but I wanted to write it so that I would have something to look at while I’m kicking myself for breaking another resolution.
Cue the convo…what are you doing for New Years? Do you celebrate? Is Snooki really going to be in the ball on New Year’s? Are you going to make a resolution this year?
So many valid questions.
And so little icing.
I mean, time.
Love to all, and SEE YOU SOON!!!!!!!
p.s. I’m AFRAID I can’t share exactly what I’m writing about just yet, but don’t be FEARFUL about it, because I will definitely be announcing it soon. I am really SCARED my editor is going to pounce on me for this (she’s too nice to), but I couldn’t resist!!!!! Happy New Year!!!! To the year of writing more and fearing less…
