Marvelously Mundane

I realized today, that even at its most mundane points; my life is incredible.
I have finally accepted myself.
I do not try to gain other's approval.
I do not get my sense of self from an external source (people, things, or actions.... its actually really hard.)
I have realized my own limitations.
Most importantly, I decided I deserve nice things.
The problem in life is that so often we believe that we do not deserve the best.

you might be in denial, but those thoughts appear as 

"Do you think I'm good enough for him?"
"I will never have a job like ____, I'm just not as smart."
"I'm  never going to have that."

The real question is, Is he good enough for You?
why compare yourself to someone else? why does that affect what you can or cannot have?
What is keeping you from what you want?

As soon as you realize that YOU deserve the best, your life will be happier.

I sold my first etsy item today.
It was really exciting.

Jon left me this darling note the other day before he left for work.
It was surrounded by an array of rice side dishes and PB&J ingredients.
This is also evidence in Jon's own handwritting of referring to cat as "Madam Cat"

Jon is pretty awesome.
He is keenly aware that ridiculously absurd things give me happiness.
like bringing me home a snail.
I've never seen one like this.
Look at his little eyeballs!
He was delightful, we named him Gary.
I then released him into a marvelous clump of bushes.

I saw this tree that had these amazing leaves.
It made me want to make a necklace out of them.
Naturally occurring two-tone?
Some people felt bad for Eve because she work a skirt of fig leaves.
I bet she was super stylin' though.
I'd wear a skirt made of these leaves.

Jon's work paid for us to go to outback steakhouse.
they gave us both $20 gift cards.
So I ordered an 18 dollar meal.
and got a doctor pepper.
it was probably the happiest day of my life.

This is what I ordered.
Baby Back Ribs.

Now I have to amaze you with my housewifery.
these are red potatoes.
they are delicious.
as you can see, I had many of them.
so I made things like Hashbrowns, potatoes cooked in butter, breakfast burritos...
typical potato dishes.
But I still have 20 left.
give me recipe ideas.
I will feature it in my blog and tell you if its worth eating.
or we can make a mockery of how terrible I am at following any kind of direction....

I also miss Mexican food.
Utah doesn't have any delicious places where I can dine on my native cuisine. 
I made carne asada.
Doesn't it look delicious?
Then I took it, and made into enchiladas.
by using all the lovely things in the picture below.
Cooking is more than housewifery.

Oh, and here is a picture of Jon and I being adorable.
we are 27 different kinds of cute.
