Come January

Come January we will be moving to Alabama.

It kind of makes me wish that when Rhett had that chipped out tooth, I had just let him keep it. I bet we would feel like we fit in better if I had.


I have never lived in the Deep South before. It will be an adventure.

This post makes it sound like I'm reluctant to move, but to be honest, I'm laid back about it all. When your world is the four walls of your home, it's so much easier to be fine with switching one set of four walls for another set of four walls.

As Rhett says, "If they sell chocolate in Alabama, you'll be just fine."

And really, isn't that the truth?

I know I should be modest and retiring about this and pretend that I'm only telling you this because my husband is making me (yes, Pioneer Woman, I am looking at you). But I don't mind self-promotion.

Also, I've already told you I think I'm awesome. Despite the almost overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

So. There's this new blog magazine thing. It is pretty cool because it reviews all these blogs (You know how you never have enough blogs to read to completely avoid housework? This will solve your problem!) and it looks pretty slick, too.

This month I am a featured blogger. Hooray for me! Actually, I should really be groveling and thanking them for taking me despite the fact that I have blogged only like four times in the last year. But, whatever. I'm awesome.

Here is the link if you would like to take a look. I am on page 20ish, but look around. Have fun. Ignore your kids. Don't do the laundry. Heaven knows I'm not.

How I Will Get Famous and Stuff

In the last four days, I have eaten almost 100% candy. Breakfast? A fun-size Kit-Kat, a banana flavored Laffy-Taffy (banana flavor=fruit), and two Reese's peanut butter cups. Lunch? Three fun-size Nestle Crunches, a Fun Dip sugary stick, some candy corn, and again, a fruit-flavored Laffy-Taffy. Dinner? Snickers, M&Ms, Tootsie Rolls, and Milky Ways.

I should warn you off of this kind of diet, because just imagine the caloric intake here. And also, the lack of vitamins.

But, I'm going to make millions off of this because I've lost three pounds by eating nothing but candy.

I'm a freaking diet genius!
