the plan is to have no plan at all.....

Today I want nothing more than to go to the grocery store.....without a list.

I want to wander up and down the aisles tossing in whatever suits my fancy.

No plan what so ever.

I don't want items that will make a nice meal or things that are on sale.

I want good stuff....perhaps I will venture so far as to say junk.

Well perhaps not all junk, sometimes those clear glass jars of grapefruits slices do look extra tempting.


To execute this plan-less plan, I need to get going and plan my outfit. But after that, the plan is to have no plan.

Or at least that's what I'm planning on.

You know you have a problem if.....

Whilst walking through the grocery store for your weekly stock up of food stuffs,

you place a call to the tasty Chinese restaurant down the street for a carry-out order.

Even worse, if you whisper your order for fear the other shoppers will hear you

and your absurdity, then point and laugh.

Not that I know anything about this.

I'm just sayin, you might have a problem if these scene is familiar......

ps: couldn't the leftovers technically be catagorized as 'groceries'??????

Look Who's Here!

It's my new nephew Emmett!

(or Easy E, as some peeps in the family like to call him)

He was born at 4:34am on March 13th (his due date) weighing in at 7lbs exactly and 20in long.

He is sweet as can be.

We are all in love.

The Woman I Want To Be (in regards to my pantry)

I want to be organized
I want to be creative
I want to be prepared for birthdays (aka: ingredients for cupcakes on hand)
I want to be coupon savvy
I want to be gourmet
I want to be fresh from the garden
I want to be international

But mostly I want to be the woman who when faced with 3-5 unexpected dinner guests doesn't suggests Chinese take-out....instead she whips up a kick ass meal from things she already has on hand.

Mi Madre is like this. My sister is like this. I fear the hostess with the mostess gene might have taken a hop skip and a jump, missing me entirely.

At least I have a super friendly telephone voice when ordering the take out......
