The Art of Sporadic Blogging

So...I started the blog...I wrote two. And then stopped. Life got busy. Hectic even. "More stuff to blog about," stated Mindy (who convinced me to blog in the first place.) Trrrrue, but somehow, it got pushed to the back burner anyway. So, I may be a sporadic blogger. Just warning you...

And the second part of this entry will be entitled "A Strange Dream."

The other morning I woke up, wracking my brain to remember the details from my dream. I knew it was about me making an important phone call to somebody advice, I thin. (I just typed "I thin." Huh, I wish.) I meant to type "I think." my dream, I had gotten this great advice (which I cannot remember now to save my life) but I couldn't remember who I had just called. John somebody. John, John, John...I kept saying it out loud in my dream and in the waking stages, too...fighting to remember John WHO?? It was somebody I knew. Or maybe just thought I knew. Because it FINALLY came to me...John Krasinski. Seriously?? I laughed out loud. (Not a bad way to wake up!)

Yes, I feel like I know, personally, "Jim" from "The Office." I loved his character - and had a crush on the actor - for several years. And then married Jeremy, who is MY very own "Jim." =) Which is very happy. And now, the character "Jim" is still great and cute and funny, but I've moved past the "I need to marry a Jim!" - mainly because I really did get to! (Sometimes I still can't believe it.) And just enjoy "The Office" for what it is...a way to still make me laugh on Thursday evenings. But back to the was nothing romantic at all. Just a phone conversation in which I was asking for advice from a friend. You hear that, John K.? We're friends. It was nice. =)

Blog Title

So, earlier this evening I was trying to finish up my first post before a friend came over after church - and I totally forgot to say why I had named my blog "The Way I Am." First of all, I love Ingrid Michaelson and I enjoy her song of that name. (And I discovered her before the song was in the Old Navy sweater commercials. So there.) I think her voice, songs, and attitude are just fantastic. I even used her remake of Elvis' "Can't Help Falling in Love" for my bridesmaids to walk down the aisle to. Look it up. It's completely beautiful. Anyway, "The Way I Am" is my ringtone for when the husband calls me...even though he sometimes makes fun of how much I listen to Ingrid. What? I know. I try not to get mad. ;) Back to topic...I thought it was a good name for a blog. Don't be expecting overly personal blogs from this girl, but I plan to write about recipe triumphs (and disasters), music I love/hate, TV I love/hate, things I believe in and why, and the like. Should be fun!

My first post

I have long wondered about entering the world of blogging...I've always enjoyed writing and I absolutely love reading other people's blogs. But apparently I needed a push. And my friend Mindy gave me that push just fact, she gave me a deadline. By March 30th (Or does it have 31 days? 30 days hath September, April, June, and November. All the rest have 31. Got it.) I must have started my blog. I promised. And didn't even wait until March 31st, as my procrastination tendencies might have led me to do! =)
