This is why I don't blog

Confession: Today I made stir fry. In the oven. Because I was too lazy to stand over the stove and stir it.

I needed a break today. It was one of those days where I got home, took a nap, and woke up thinking it was tomorrow. Then I crawled out of bed and baffled over why the heck there was astroturf all over my jeans. Just one of life's many mysteries.

Anyways, since I spent all day dreaming about the delicious kale rice bowl I ate yesterday, I decided that toasted coconut and I were going to have another get together. Then I remembered that I had put my jeans in the wash with a blanket that I had used to sit on to watch my roommates soccer game on an astroturf field. Mystery solved? You betcha.

It's definitely one of those days. Lucky for me I found a new food blog that I am crushing on. Now my "oven fry" (I can't really justify calling it a stir fry) has joined me on the couch for a mixture of reading blogs, blogging blogs, and finding a documentary to watch on netflix.

Here's the important part. I realized that the reason I never blog is because I never have pictures. I never take pictures anymore. If I did you would end up reading blog posts that were full of pictures of toast with jam. I can't help it. I'm just a girl with a crush. I'm not ashamed.

The thing is I have been trying some fun yummy new recipes lately, but I haven't taken pictures of them. So I haven't posted them. They are delicious though. You can trust me on that one.

P.S. Want to hear the best part of my day? You do? Ok I will tell you. Today I decided not to skip my international health class (it's my favorite class as of late) and we had a guest speaker. And he looked exactly like Dr. McDreamy. And I'm pretty sure he was wearing Jcrew. The only thing that could have made that class better would be if I had a slice of toast with jam on it. McDreamy. McJammy. McLove.

(Just FYI, we all entered into a social contract that we would make silly faces for this pic.
Grandma sure slyed her way out of this one.)

You guys. (Or should I say you mom, because I think she is the only one who still reads this blog) (Or maybe you Laurel, because she is just plain awesome) I am in one of those moods. It's the weather. I can tell. Anyways, for some reason I have been crushing on everything today!

I'm not kidding around. There is so much to love out there. I hope your day has been just as dandy and full of love. I'm going to sign off before this gets too lovey dovey.

Hey Dee Hey

So listen. It's 2012. Are you loving it or what? 2012 is going to be a great year. I can just tell. It's going to be full of wonderful things. Count on it. I've been working on a few new things this year. I'm not one for new years resolutions, but I do love a good fresh start every now and then.

Reality check time (Grab your tissues): My best friend 'o life went to Spain for a year. She is busy eating eggs with potatoes, and hiking, and speaking a beautiful language. I miss her so much I could cry, or curse, or litter. So I take all my blogging/writing abilities and cram them into overly dramatic emails for her to read, and have neglected my already neglected blog.

Do me a favor. If you have a best friend who is not in Spain. Give them the biggest hug of your life. Tell them you like their new shoes. Watch a funny youtube video together. Recall the embarassing time you ate granola together. Recite some inside jokes. And then tell them, for the love of everything, never to go to Spain unless they pinky promise to take you with. Learn from my mistakes.

Now it's time for some binizz. I'm going through an existential crisis. I'm not really sure what the purpose of this blog is anymore. Plus this punk kid told me my blog is lame. He is lame. I hope he reads that. (Colton). Anyways. Maybe I'll turn this into one of those blogs where I post pictures of cute animals and crochet tutorials. Maybe I'll make one of those blogs where I put on vintage clothes and take pictures of myself looking at the ground and then tell you where to buy each item. Or maybe I will just keep sporadically posting whenever I feel like it.

Deal? Deal.
