I had a pretty fun weekend. My Mom and I and Kathi my Mom's/our friend went to a craft show in town. I think it was the first one of the fall season, so the entire town was there. It was fun to walk around but it was very crowded, so not the ideal shopping experience. We saw a lot of cute things, but we didn't end up seeing anything we were dying to buy. The weather was gorgeous too, so that was a treat. We usually don't get cool days until closer to Thanksgiving. I'll take it!
I thought these books were cool
I have been working hard on the food blog, and I really think my cooking skills are starting to improve. Not that I can just whip up something tasty with only my brain, but I am feeling a lot more comfortable and like I know what I am doing a lot more. I even got some comments this week! I think I really enjoy the process of growing a blog from nothing to a little bit of a following. I kind of hit a wall with this blog after a while, which is why I didn't bother with it for so long. Now there seems to be SO MUCH information out there on how to really kick it into high gear and take your blog up to the next level, so I am excited to see how far I can take it. Below is one of my latest recipes, masala shrimp 'n' grits. It was outstanding!
In other exciting news, I started a little side project of managing the social media for my co-worker friend's volleyball club. It is cool to get creative and come up with interesting content for something I know little about. I am enjoying the challenge though, and I think I am doing pretty alright with it. They've had some significant activity on their ignored social media accounts, and I even got an inquiry from a prospective player on Twitter. It is funny to me how I can be so anti-social in real life, but in the social media world, I can't get enough.
Speaking of, my favorite show to hate tweet is back! You are going to have to mute me on Sunday nights because Sisterwives is back. It is crazier than ever with the story lines they are trying to sell the audience on, so it is ripe for snarky commentary! #joy
