How Are You, Chloe Moon?

Firstly the Cinderella themed bridal shower went better than I could ever hoped for this Saturday! This may sound weird, but when you make someone cry while they're smiling because they are so happy...well that's the best feeling in the world. The "Prince Charming Chocolate Chip Cookie" Recipe in bell jars was an absolute hit! All my recipe cards were perfect. Later in the week I will do a Tutorial on how we did the jars. A bonus in last week's craziness was the Sock Monkey Cake Pops that my friend Erin needed help making for her son's 1st birthday. During this week I will also do a post on a tutorial for the Sock Monkey cake pops! Both worked out perfectly so I'm gladly putting my KitchenAid and my craft supplies away for just a lil while! =)

Well...after the craziness I finally got to sit down, chill out and take it all in. My world has been on auto-pilot for what seems too long and I have to take a step back and actually see what the fuck is going on with everything in my life. Excuse the bluntness, but it's the truth.  The Bridal Shower was the first event I've been to in a while where I would be seeing people I hadn't seen in the longest time, ergo those "LIFE" questions we all dread were asked by each & every guest. At first I know I said, "Oh I'm great! I'm doing well!" know to dodge further prying...but then you get to that guest who is a lil more than an acquaintance that needs more than a few short adjectives. Truthfully and honestly I  simply said I was happy with a genuine smile on my face, but that doesn't mean everything is perfect.

There are a few things that I need to think about and I need to find my voice to make things happen.  I just devoured Season Two of Girls and I hate to say it but it made me realize how GREAT of a place in my life I am. However there are decisions that need to be made that I feel like I are so make it or break it & it's scary. One of the guests asked me, "How long is your maternity leave at your job? That's something you should look into for the future..." It threw me for a loop but I realized shit I have to think about stuff like that. Do I stay at my company until I have a baby or find a better job if I don't plan on having kids in the next 3 years. Or someone asked "Oh you own your place? Oh well are you still paying interest or principal on your mortgage yet?" I stuttered and I think I made an excuse that I had to get more cake plates or something. Another asked, "Well you will be with Craig three years this June, so what's your limit of time you will stay with him if he doesn't propose to you?"  Well after that question I had a large glass of wine & handed my car keys to my mother. It's so much to take in...

Some of those questions I can't answer. I just can't muster up the words to configure an answer because I don't know the answers. But they are on my mind...more so than ever. I hope this week is full of warmer weather (*hoping*), kitty cuddling which is my new favorite thing with Angel & maybe a few steps closer to answers for those above questions and countless more... =)

Also I can't get "Feel this Moment" by Pitbull & Cristina Aguilera out of my head. It's driving me crazy that they used a sound clip from Aha's "Take On Me", but the song is pure addiction. Oh and I can't stop listening to "I don't care I love it" by Icona Pop. Girls Seaon 2 episode 3 was epic with that song!!!
