A few days ago we had the first Perfect Spring Day of the year in Austin.
The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot. The wind was blowing, but not too hard. Just the Perfect Spring Day.
Perfect Springs Days fill me with a rush of gratitude. So here are some things I am just super thankful for lately:
This post was thiiiiis close to being another edition of “let me tell you all the crazy things that can happen to the brain.”
I have decided not to subject you to this, and for that, you’re welcome.
Instead, let’s talk about the great and honorable intentions I have for spring break.
I always approach breaks from school with faaaar too much ambition. There is usually a huge gap between what I dream I will accomplish, and what I actually end up doing. My rough goals for spring break look like this: Continue reading
Oh. So one time, I made scones a full WEEK before Valentine’s day so that I could post them in time for you to make the perfect breakfast for your love!!! They were even semi heart-shaped, and full of red jam, and I planned them out for at LEAST 4 days. I was so on top of my game. Continue reading
Now that we’ve overloaded you with cookie recipes, let’s take a brief break and make some cornbread.
I’m a little embarrassed, because I’ve been meaning to share this recipe with you since, oh I dunno…Thanksgiving. Remember that holiday? It was only 3 1/2 weeks ago, although it feels like it was about 13 lifetimes ago. Once again, I lost weeks of my life to learning about a single organ in the body. This time, the kidneys.

I took my first final of the semester yesterday.
Especially whew because, um, I thought my exam was three hours and found out as the proctor was telling us the exam instructions that, no, it was in fact a four hour test. That’s a nice(?) surprise. Thanks to the parking gods for not giving me a ticket even though I only paid for three hours of parking, not four.
Since my first final was yesterday, my first test ritual of the semester also occurred yesterday. Test rituals are weird. But everyone totally has one. And they’re all totally psycho (in the best way promise).
I just basically slept for the last week, and I feel SO much better. It’s amazing what a little lazing around can do for a girl.
I’m super looking forward to baking (and posting!) more regularly again. This summer was a whirlwind that did not consist of butter, sugar, and flour. And those are my least favorite kinds of whirlwinds.
So. Anyway. Decisions. Those are things.
Woah. What day is it, y’all?!
The last thing I remember is downloading Justin Bieber’s new album and pressing play.
And then all of the sudden it’s a week later. JB Time Warp for real, you guys…
