PINTEREST LOVE BLOG CHALLENGE: THE STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE OREO TRUFFLE

I threw down the gauntlet of recipe love with my very first Blog Event. I talked the talk, but can I walk the walk?

I chose the difficult choice, but I figured it result in something that my family would enjoy and I was right. The Strawberry Shortcake Stuffed Golden Oreo Truffle was sweet and rich which is everything a proper Valentine should be. To give credit where credit is due, many thanks to the Life Made Sweeter blog for the wonderful adaptation of the Kraft Foods recipe. Continue reading

I was just about to post that I didn’t feel like I was getting older

After my almost mind-erasing day at a near miss bad opportunity, I was fixing to write that I object to the premise that I am getting older. I wanted to loudly say that I will not be defined by my birth certificate or by my crinkled up eyes.

Please don’t tell my husband, he is a Fox News kind of guy, but I’ve been following a series on The Huffington Post about women reinventing themselves post age 50. The funny thing is, I wonder when I got to the point when this would catch my attention. Sure, technically I am a baby boomer by a few months, but does that mean I need reinventing? I’m not entirely sure I’ve ever invented in the first place. And most importantly, does it mean that I need to change the name of my blog? Continue reading

Let’s Make A Deal: my automotive consultant career in a day.

As promised…my new job!

I responded to an ad, fixed an interview and got hired on the spot. So, what’s with this? What am I doing? I can tell you that it is not the dream job of a few blogs ago, they passed on me.

On Tuesday, I was hired for a job in car sales. According to my trainer, Mister F, my title would be “Consultant in the Automotive Industry”. Because, you know…car salesman? The connotation is not good. The ad stated that only honest and ethical people need only apply. Continue reading

go go go goals!

I’ve just started in Blogging 201 as of today and our assignment is to set up some goals!

I consider myself to be a goal-driven person as an ideal. But please don’t ask me why I haven’t exercised for a few days! I like to put goals to paper and look at them and make myself accountable to take the necessary steps to achieve them. These days, I have more motivation to start getting things achieved.

As some of you may know, I have more than one blog, I am hosting the up and coming hunnedo.com, which is a Pinterest bucket list with my three daughters, so all of my goals will include this endeavor as well. Inventingreallife has been a great project for me, personally. I’ve enjoyed connecting with a wider audience since taking Blogging 101. This site will continue to be my outlet, my chance to let it all hang out. Continue reading
