A few months ago I accidentally purchased ten 32-ounce bags of carrots. I was ordering online and thought I was purchasing 10 individual carrots. This is why reading is important, people!! Instead of heading into the store to return them, defeating the entire purpose of using Amazon Prime Now to purchase my groceries, I decided to take it on as a challenge. And I have to say, I crushed it. I made Carrot Breakfast Cookies, Carrot Fritters, I roasted them, cooked them in an air fryer, AND I made a Moroccan Carrot Salad and fell in love with the recipe. The hardest part about this recipe is grating the carrots. And if you think getting bigger biceps isn’t worth it, I can’t help you.
Can I send you a little update from my bathroom renovation life? Because I think I may need therapy after it’s all said and done. You guys. This bathroom renovation has been going on since APRIL 1ST!! This is insanity to me since our bathroom isn’t big…like at all. Things moved much slower than we expected, then we had a fabricator who took our money then wouldn’t call us back, then we finally got our money back, got a new fabricator who came in to cut the marble yesterday, then guess what happened? Our bathroom would be done by Wednesday once the plumbers and electrician came through…then our contractor drilled a hole in the wrong place of one our cabinets. Which means another week has been tacked on while we wait for a new door of the cabinet. This all bums me out because I’m going to need YEARS before I do any other renovation. My question is – do renovations EVER go smoothly? Has anyone out there actually had a good experience? Please say yes!
On a much more fun and happy note, can we just take a second to PRAISE Taylor Swift for her new music video and song?! I’m obsessed. I’ve watched it about 20 times at this point and I already can’t wait to watch it again. Whenever someone asks what my favorite concert was, I quickly say TSwift. She was one of the best performers I’ve ever seen. And she works her ass off to spread love and equality, especially to the younger generation. Why can’t we have more lovely celebrities like her?! Now excuse me while I go watch her video again and remind myself that there are still good people out there in this world. Sometimes it’s easy to forget. I love her.
