T'was the week before Thanksgiving

Oh my dear blog.  I just can't seem to keep up with writing on this space anymore.  Not that I write anywhere else either.  And I love writing, so it is a shame that I can't seem to carve out time for my beloved hobby anymore. 

Things have been good over here.  I've been Christmas shopping, preparing for Izzy's 6th birthday party, and stressing out over goofy things.  I've also been baking up a storm.  I keep thinking that I should be taking pictures of some of my yummy creations, but I am just too lazy.  But I can recreate the image with words (and links)!  Basically, I make brownies and put things on/in them.  Delicious! Last week I made brownies with Reese Pieces inside and chocolate gauche incing on top.  So good!  This week I made regular brownies with a homemade coconut icing.  SUPER GOOD! 

We are having our Christmas pictures taken this weekend, which I am super excited about.  I feel all organized and prepared and shit.  Look at me!  I am thinking ahead for once in my life!  Aren't you proud?

In random, weird news,  we apparently have a gas leak at the curb in front of our house.  Some gas worker dude knocked on my door tonight with the bad news.  Apparently one of our neighbors smelled the gas and called to report the problem.  I am feeling kind of stressed about the whole thing.  I am afraid I am going to start my car and it will EXPLODE.  John seems largely unconcerned.  I am probably overreacting.  Anyways, the gas dude said that someone will come out to fix the problem "soon."  I am hoping that soon means NOW.

How have you been?

I feel your pain. It's been forever since I last posted, and even longer since I have checked in on all the blogs I follow. Finally taking a little time to do both...

Your thinking Christmas and it's not even Thanksgiving yet... I've got a turkey, that's ahead of the game, right???
