Just took my hair down (first time since going to the hairdresser.....a while back). I love my locs!!! I can't wait until they get longer.

The only thing I miss is how soft my hair used to feel after it was washed.

I am stressed. I am busy busy busy.

I am so busy that I haven't had time to do laundry and have now run out of clean underwear. But I still don't have time to do laundry.

scg, I died at your post. LOL.
That's how I act with infantile S^2.
My brain shuts down, I can't think of anything to say or do. I'm a mute.



today I made a poop joke in front of a male. He died laughing, it was a gross poop joke. Here's how it went

Classmate: I made smoothies with almond milk
Classmate 2: oh that's good
Male: Ew almond milk
Classmate 2: Yea I don't drink milk
Me: me neither milk makes me cry
Classmate 2: wait what...did you say milk makes you cry
Me in childish mode: Yea...from my BUTT.....just kidding *witch cackle*




*everyone crazy laughs like crazy childish people*






The male wizard cackled like a wizard on loon tablets, and then told me I was gross while still cackling

Coffee macarons with caramel-coffee buttercream.

Say It.  I Dare You.-imageuploadedbycurltalk1364259143.059797.jpg

I still find macarons too sweet, but I like making them. And I like that if I make French buttercream (which is the best style of buttercream, let's be real) I can use the yolks, so no leftover egg parts!

I'm so hungry my stomach is starting to eat itself and all these pictures aren't helping. Plus, dinner is done and it smells really good, but we can't eat yet because Mr. Spring is on the phone giving relationship advice to his buddy (which, oh my word this is so weird to listen to him talk about) and you can't rush that kind of conversation.

I could go for a pretzel. And a macaron.

That so stinks-if only we lived near each other as I just sold my older white Kitchen Aid for $50 to a friend. B got me a new one for Christmas because the white one was leaking oil. Then he googled the issue and fixed it. So I had two.

So I came home to my roommate cleaning up a storm and I was all set to feel bad bc I didn't help out, but it turns out her boo is coming over.

And they're cooking.

How much you wanna bet they use all these dishes and don't clean them before she leaves (tomorrow)?

I would've definitely bought it! I will have one soon, I have some other things to focus on, like buying a car instead of a kitchen mixer... BUT it will be minnneeeeeee

Ugh, why did my daughter's teacher send a note home today that they'd be having an Easter party on Thursday? That note should've gone home last week at least. You can't just spring that junk on people (i.e., me), especially when you're asking them to send in snacks. That's just wrong!

Thanks. It's really just basic bread-shaping technique. First you roll nice tight sealed rounds, which is key, then because pretzel dough is a very stiff dough and because it's made with bread flour which is high in gluten, you let it rest to allow the gluten to relax. Then it's just a matter of continuing to roll and rest until it's the necessary length (at least 16 inches).
The rest comes from the lye bath. Baking soda bath works okay for the color, but the lye gives incomparable(and true, classic) flavor and more sheen.

i was disappointed with the lack of selection in shoes and handbags and there were no plus sizes in the clothes, and the food selection wasn't all that different than a regular grocery store here, but the prices were pretty darn good!

I have yet to check it out (one opened about 2 minutes from work last week), but you're the first person I have heard sound the least pit impressed!
