I had different plans for my life.
I was going to be someone else, do something else, live somewhere else, wear different things and have like 1.4 billion more dollars than I do now.
If I had things my way, I’d be a member of the Pussycat Dolls and have two Oscars by now. I’d have a contract with Oreo and Leo would know all of my deepest, darkest secrets and guard them with his life and heart. I’d probably have my own Vegas show on the stage in between Britney & Celine.
God had a bigger plan for me, though. He continues to reveal that His plans are always better than my own. I love seeing how He has intimately orchestrated every event of my life to lead me where He wants me to be. He always provides & never leaves my side. Like, I’m pleased He answered “No” to my prayer to become a Tony winner by age 18. He just knew better.
But I have faith He will use my killer hip hop moves & vocal range for good some day.

Oh girl. My plans for my life did not include ever getting excited about new appliances but this where we’re at. New fridge on Wednesday, which means everything must go. Somehow, this is exactly what turned out, plus some onions, parsley, and just a dash of parm. Yum.
Nothing gets me more jazzed than home maintenance. I feel ya, boo.
Yum! Perfect use of end of summer veggies!
