My schedule has been kind of messed up lately and it has been my fault. Lately, I’ve been really tired. I’ve been slacking on attending CrossFit classes. There was one week I went four days in a row and then I felt terrible so then I took a week off. Trying to find the balance has been difficult.
This month’s giveaway will run until April 24th (Friday) and the winner announced on Sunday/Monday.
This is the SEVENTH giveaway for The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking cookbook. This is the cookbook I have been working from for my year-long blogging & baking challenge.
The coauthor of this cookbook, Denene Wallace, graciously donated 12 books and I have them in my possession. And she also autographed each one. So this is how it will work.
If you are like me, you have a favorite pair of go-to shoes for any outfit, right? I know I do. It’s only been recent that I found a favorite pair of shoes, at Stein Mart. They are called New York Transit – Swift Swagger. They are not expensive and I love them. However, I’ve only had them for a few months and already I have worn down that little black thing on the heel. I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS.
Every Friday I hope to bring you a new VLOG. This is something all new to me so I hope you can hang with me during this learning phase and also offer up some of your video blogging tips and tricks. I know, in this video my lighting is horrid! I apologize up front.
In today’s VLOG, I talk about what I am reading and what I want to read. Two of my favorite authors are Nora Ephron and Adriana Trigiani.
Every Sunday at 8:00pm central time, I try to participate in Mack Collier’s #blogchat on Twitter. Mack Collier is the author of Think Like a Rock Star and he is a social media strategist, trainer and speaker located in Alabama.
Mack and I met “online” several several years ago. I don’t know where or how or why but our paths crossed somewhere along the internet highway. It was back when I was young and immature and certainly before social media was around.
Yay, I have finally gotten to the point of where I have everything already stocked in the kitchen. No special trips to the grocery store. I had the almond flour, flaxseed flour, and the Xanthan gum on hand as well as all of the other ingredients. I can probably thank The Gent for having all the other ingredients such as cayenne pepper, onion and garlic powder. He’s the cook in our house anyway.
Starting to mess around with vlogging. Here’s one I did about my ginormous handbag that I lug around, all over the place.
I’ve decided to give my blog a little more structure. I hope you notice the difference, in a good and positive way. You can find a breakdown of topics underneath of the video.
Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a huge fan of Nora Ephron’s work. I have blogged about her a few times. And when she died, I was heartbroken. Nora Ephron is the epitome of what I wanted to be. But there was, and can be, only one Nora Ephron. I will always admire and adore her.
I must be getting old and soft because I am about to do something totally out of character for me. I am about to defend a celebrity. Of course, everyone by now has heard what Gwyneth Paltrow said about her parenting hardships and everyone by now has voiced their fair share of ridicule about her comments too.
