I’m lucky to be surrounded by so many people who think my food crap is kewl.
Everyone is so supportive of my lil blog and instagram and they are almost used to waiting to eat their meals until I take photos.
Perhaps there is no bigger fan, though, than our friend Josh. This man has PLANS for my “brand.” I’m talking he wants to direct videos and introduce a musical element (you would have to hear his vision to fully grasp this) and ultimately just make me the next Food Network star with my own line of cookware at Target.
All to say, he’s an angelic creature…. who just so happened to back into my car this afternoon. I mean, pretty much smashed my left rear door. I was honestly impressed his little Civic could do so much damage. I could tell he was crest fallen, so naturally I asked Garrett if I could pretend to be really mad, but apparently that would be insensitive? An hour goes by, Garrett and I have forgotten about it, Josh shows back up at the house with a device to remove car dents that he just purchased at Lowe’s. Angelic, I tell you! Truly, I could care about nothing less than a car dent. I think it adds to my street cred. The mom-mobile needed a little character besides the Seahawks stickers I’ve slapped all over it.
But this is coming out of your commission, Josh.
