Behind The Butter

in my kitchen

…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.

    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. πŸ˜‰

    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.

    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 πŸ™‚

    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!!!
