I’m usually pretty good about planning things.  I mean, I would hope so, considering I was once paid to be a Special Events Director of a nonprofit.  I can put together calendars, to-do lists, minute-by-minute schedules like no body’s business.  (Wait, are these things worth bragging about?  Or are these things that make me seem completely neurotic? )

I say this because, in terms of my upcoming move, I have done NOTHING.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  I’ve done lots of passive things–research places to live, put together a to-do list, and more research.  In terms of putting actual deadlines and dates with each of these items, of getting a sense of urgency associated with these things–I’ve got nothing. In terms of acting on any of these items, I’ve got nothing.  Just the sheer act of writing down the list, of putting it on the wall, made me feel so good that I’ve stopped stressing out about my lack of progress. To an extent.  But now the list mocks me, each morning, cause I haven’t crossed anything off of it.  It’s a pretty obnoxious list.

I can’t tell if it’s because I’m in the midst of a full-blown attack of senioritis, or, if I’m just in denial that I’m about to upheave my life.   I’m asking SH and our dog to move their life cross country with me, so that I can (presumably) spend the next two years drinking a lot, going to football games, and getting my school-on.   Bless them.

Sorry, blog! I lied about posting once a week.  It’s totally June now, and I only posted once in May.   But, to be fair, I have been keeping track of items on both my 30 in 30 list and Cali list, so I think those interactions totally count. 

I’ve been attempting to take pictures of the food I’ve been making recently, but am quickly realizing that I am NOT a good food photographer.   My most recent food-related accomplishment is successfully making cake pops.  You know, little bites of joy that contain all the sugary, dessert goodness one needs, in one fell swoop. 

I’m not going to lie.  These were not easy to make.  I got the recipe and technique from Steamy Kitchen. I’m an avid follower of Jaden’s–her website and her food always look SO GOOD–and when she posted this a few months ago, I immediately added it to my “must try” list.  Continue reading
