So not only have I been reinstated here on At Home with the Hinkleys, but I have started a new blogging venture, The Life Gastronomic. The name is based off my favorite movie ever, The Life Aquatic. It is a food blog in which I am cooking through some of my cookbooks to hone my cooking skills, because I don't really have a whole bunch of them. I was getting to a point where we were eating the same 5 things for dinner on a rotation and nothing was ever even that tasty. I am starting with the Aarti Paarti cookbook (she won food network star a couple years ago) and I am IN LOVE. I feel like a legit Indian person with what we are eating every night. So if you feel like checking it out, it would be great to have a reader or two :)
I also made a post over on Girl vs. Flab where I talked about that Nicole Arbor fat shaming youtube video. I was kind of in the heat of anger when I wrote it, but I still pretty much stand by everything I said.
So I have gone to not blogging ever to writing all the blogs. I think I am a glutton for punishment, but for now I am having fun and am enjoying the fresh sprouting of ideas.
I haven't given up on the CPA thing just yet. I actually hope to get a job upgrade here pretty soon, and hope my job will offer to foot the bill for the exams. I can't waste any more of my money taking these exams at my current salary.
I also have exciting side projects! I am the Controller of my dear friend's start up out of Austin, which is doing amazingly awesome. They are some of the most talented creative minds money can by, if you know anyone who's looking. And I also closed a deal with my co-worker's club volleyball team to manage their social media. Exciting! I am on a 3 year plan to buy our (my) dream townhouse in the city, so everything is falling into place nicely. :)
Oh yeah, Bluebell is back too! Life is good!
