Sorry to announce, The Caribbean just didn't happen. This past week was kind of nutty, along with a myriad of unwanted events...I learned that my motives this week were just shy of being pure. I spent way too many frustrating hours mulling over recipes, thinking of what in the "hay" I was going to make, and in complete frustration broke down Thursday night. It all ended when I laid my weeping body in bed proclaiming, "sweety, we aren't going to the Caribbean tomorrow night." After that decision my heart wept but my anxiety disappeared! what a relief!! We ended up having a very nice dinner I must say, stress free, and I made a recipe I have been wanting to try for a while. I even got to have lunch with my mom and coffee with a friend all in the same day! I guess you could say my "trip" was visiting with some people I love! :)
What I learned through this mess: I am a perfectionist with prideful issues...
What I did in this realization: confessed. My Savior is a forgiving GOOD God!
On a much lighter note..I made homemade bagels this weekend. Yummy to my tummy Apple Cinnamon Bagels. We had them this morning because I spent a better half of Saturday prepping them. Yes, they take a bit of time, but really, I think they are worth it...Nothing feels more satisfying than some time well spent on scrumptiousness (i know that's not a word but WOW it sounds good!)
Tasty traveling might resume this next week, but eh, Im not stressing over it! (or at least i'll do my best not to!!!)
