After another long disappearance...

Hellloooooo readers! Have you all run away since I have been the absolute worst at posting? Let's do a big combo update post, shall we?

  1. Bakesale plug
  2. Life updates (woooo) + plans for the blog
  3. An outfit post (scroll down if you're just here for pictures and not words)

If you're in the SF area, stop by this coming Saturday and buy some baked goods made by me or many more talented food bloggers from the bay area (hint: there are a lot of them). Or, if you're not from around here, see if there is one in your area (sorry, looks like Tennessee isn't feeling the love). I'm hoping to make some pie-themed cupcakes (lemon meringue, coconut cream... maybe a third option if I'm feeling overly ambitious!) - I'll post an update about that later, hopefully before the sale. I am hosting a party later that day and won't be able to stick around and sell the baked goods, alas, but they'll be there for your consumption!

Obviously not much happening for me in the blog world these days, but real life continues to be exciting and crazy. Work was really not doing it for me (pay and job security are/were fine, but no sense of satisfaction) so I recently switched teams, and now I'm taking a week and a half off to pump myself up for the new stuff I'll be doing. I'm hopeful and mostly excited, but also still a little burnt out and hoping that clears up by the time my vacation days run low. I'm also still figuring a lot of things out in my personal life, which is good but tiring and sometimes (often) stressful. In my free time (and even on my new team at work) I'm planning on getting a little more into web development and some UI/frontend work, so I hope to finally give this blog a facelift soon, to get some practice. I also have a huge backlog of food/recipe posts to share - it'd be nice to get back in the habit of posting those when I find a few free minutes! This is probably all rather boring, but if you know me in real life you might care, and honestly it's all a pretty big deal to me, so there you go :)

Oooh, pictures
Outfit! It got super hot here in the bay area last weekend, so I busted out the shorts and my brand new Ssekos sandals! Seriously, love these shoes.

A couple of self-portraits featuring my lovely cozy bedroom and palm-tree-shaded spring sunshine.


shorts, lacy tank: Express; black shirt: Gap; necklace: Delia's?? from my childhood; watch: Target; sandals: Ssekos

Yay, photography by Tim, thanks dear! Also thanks for remembering that I wanted to take photos before it got completely dark out (the blur in some of these is due to setting sun darkness).
