i survived my first week of back to school traffic and guess what? it sucked so much crusty asshole. i will hate driving from now until next june because all the dillholes are out on the roads again.
but it's friday so you know what that means!
first order of bidness: you all get a virtual hug from me! thanks to everyone for your kind comments on my 10yr anniversary post yesterday. we do a true celebration next weekend when things aren't so jam-packed with birthday party jazz and whatnot. you guys are the best!
aside from the usual work garbage that did nothing but give me #RAGE the second i saw eleventy billion unread emails waiting to punch me in the face, there were some favorites from this past week i'd like to share:
guys, remember the apple butter i made that i couldn't stop raving about? i spread that shizz on some banana walnut bread i made a few nights ago and nearly jizzed in my pants, it was so fucking good.
while Project Organize my Kitchen is still in progress, my favorite area so far is my baking area. since baking is my jam, that was obviously first order of (organizing) business so i cleaned out what used to be my mom's alchemy cupboard of weird chinese herbs and made that my baking area since i do most of my baking on that side of the counter.
i wanted to maximize storage space and since we only have 1 shelf in there and a ton of open space, i decided to hang some small appliances to save space. seriously, i'm so close to pinning this shit out of sheer brilliance.
total project cost: $3 - $1 for the file folder organizer that holds my cutting boards/pot heat protectors, $1 each for the 2 bins. all from the dollar store, of course!
what you can't see: my aprons that are hung on the door for easy access.
favorite organizing accomplishment
i have finally figured out a tupperware system that works. bitches, i know you feel me when i say that the tupperware drawer/area is a pain in the fucking ass. everyone hates how their tupperware is stored because there's no good way to do it....until now. before this genius idea, i tried using a large bin for storage which obviously didn't work since it always looked like it was vomiting up storage containers all day long.
lids every where, containers stuffed into any available space and spilling over the bin. basically, #RAGE every time i opened this damn cupboard. obviously, my organizing kungfu wasn't as strong back then but check it now:
i bought a $1 dish rack that fit perfectly in my drawer. i sorted out my entire food bin collection and tossed ones that were old, didn't have lids or were never used and only kept the ones that we use on a regular basis.
i'm a contractor/consultant/company bitch at work which means i'm unable to work here for more than 2yrs straight otherwise they'll have to hire me full time and fuck that noise. i was supposed to have my "time off" starting in january but i heard that i can take my year off 3 months off in chuncks so guess what that means, bitches? I AM TAKING ALL OF DECEMBER AND HALF OF JANUARY OFF WOOHOO!!
also, i got a tweet the other day from steph indicating that i won her $50 paypal cash giveaway! i didn't even have to resort to unethical shit to win either, HOLLA!!
thanks, steph!! you totally made my night :)
Bates Motel. wow. i started this a couple of weeks ago and had to stop for some dumb reason. then i picked it up again a few days ago and it's all i can watch. creepy and awesome. get on it right meow.
dressing your cute dog up in a horrifying spider costume and unleashing him upon the world? YES PLEASE!
what are your favorites this past week?
