in my kitchen

by jenna on July 20, 2011

…I cook in ruffled aprons and red high heels. Just because!

…I eat random white bread from the supermarket when I can’t find it in me to bake a batch of these. Don’t judge.

…I don’t always clean up when I should.

I don’t want to grow up.

Hahaha – this post just makes me like you 1000x more. I can agree with everything (except the ruffled apron cause I don’t have one unfortunately) you said here.

I love your shoes! And I love the super artsy filter you put on it! Instagram I am thinking? It’s my latest obsession and passion. I love my iphone even more since I found I.G.! :)

Do you really cook in heels?!

Is that an Island in your kitchen? OhmyGod. I want your kitchen. Actually, I want A kitchen. “Alley” ones are disastrous. I’ve dropped more muffins and pizzas coming out of my oven from lack of space…

Wow – what fun shoes! Sometimes I wish I integrated the “girly” part of me a little more…maybe I’ll give my (1) pair of heels a shot in the kitchen sometime this week. ;)

The shoes are hot. And you are just about the best thing ever – can I just say that you rock? You totally do! :-)

Love this! Especially the part about cooking in ruffles and heels.

I rarely clean when I should! Gives my kitchen character. At least that’s what I tell myself… :)

Haha…I’m with you! I don’t want to grow up either. I think I’m having a mid-“twenties” crisis. Do you think there’s such a thing? LOL.

aprons are the BESTTT!

Lu @ Clean Slate to Who Knows July 20, 2011 at 7:44 pm

Love your honesty. Love your shoes. I think that cooking in ruffles is the only way to go. Who has time to clean up? Growing up isn’t so bad… I still don’t always do the dishes, but I always rinse them at least.

I don’t know if I will ever grow up – and I’m not too worried about it! I am also going to have dreams about your kitchen island…. do want.

i sure am glad i’m not alone on the random white bread thing! even my boyfriend gets at me about that one :)

Sarah July 21, 2011 at 1:54 am

I will never grow up because I’m scared it will mean I can’t titter at Uranus jokes.

This may sound corny, but you just make me enjoy life so much more! Whenever I read one of these posts from you where you are honest, funny and so relaxed I just say “What the hell”, forget all about work and should’s and do whatever I feel like doing at the moment.

In short: You make me remember that we should not focus on being someone we are not, but just enjoy life and exploit our own fantastic-ness :-)

Cute shoes!! I could never cook in heels… I actually NEVER wear shoes at all when I’m at home… or while driving… or to the grocery store (okay, kidding about that- but I would never wear shoes at all if I could get away with it!) classy lady!!!

Sarah Elizabeth July 21, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Thanks for being real. I love it! I really need to get me some ruffled aprons. You should do a fashion post about those.
