You might have noticed… I’ve been a bit MIA lately.
It started with the trip to Charleston. Then it was some orders. Then it was helping prep for a bridal shower. But you want to know the real reason?
I’m going back to school. Yup, it’s true. Yikes!
In just about two week, I’ll start graduate school. Officially. Full-time. Working towards a Masters in Education.
So, these days I’ve been working on a pre-req for a geometry class. And since I haven’t taken a math class in nearly ten years (double yikes!), it’s been interesting.
What’s that mean for you all. That’s what you really want to know, right?
My plan is to keep going with the blog. Can’t disappoint the fans!
But, I will be makin’ some changes. Changin’ to what? Well, that’s still to be seen.
I’m thinking more food, more sweets, more treats… meaning more recipes. But, it also means less posts.
Hopefully, you all will stick with me. Let me know what you want to see, what you think of the changes. I love hearing from you all and really appreciate the support… past, present and future!
Much to my chagrin, I’m back from Charleston.
It was an amazing weekend… filled with great food, delicious drinks, fun activities, charming people and beautiful sites.
The icing on the cake? My mom’s two best friends surprised me for the trip. It was fabulous, especially because I LOVE surprises. Job well done, ladies, job well done.
Thanks for all the suggestions! I’m not sure we left a stone unturned in Charleston. And don’t worry, I got my hushpuppies.
Mom and I are heading to Charleston, South Carolina for a four-day getaway this weekend. It’s my official 30th birthday present. Pretty awesome since my 21st birthday present was a belt from TJMaxx. Not that I’m complaining (and I’ll save Mom the trouble – “You were in London for the semester. That was your present!”).
This will be Mom’s first trip to Charleston, my third. If you’ve ever been, though, you know it’s a lovely city that never gets old. I think we are equally excited to explore a little, to relax a lot and to take in the Southern charm.
The last time I was there was more than four years ago. So while I know to look for some good shrimp and grits (can’t get enough), a tree covered in Spanish moss and friendly Southerners, I love hearing about new places to eat, things to do and spots for an afternoon cocktail.
Suggestions for not to miss spots? I’d love to hear them!
Well, it’s official. I have entered a new decade. I officially have to check the 30 – 35 box when answering surveys.
And, so far, 30 has been… exhausting! But, I don’t think I can attribute it to the age. No, I think it’s leftover from Party Prep turned Party Central.
I’ll be posting a lot of the details about the party in the coming days, but I’m happy to report it was a huge success. Tons of people, lots of laughs and really good eats.
I could not have asked for anything more to ring-in this new chapter!
I know, I know. So behind. No Fresh Baked Friday on Friday. No witty post today.
Why do you even come back?
But stick with me. Right now, I’m in the midst of party prep central (more details coming on that). And, I promise, Fresh Baked Friday, er we’ll call it Fresh Baked Monday this week, will be posted later today.
Thanks for your patience.
Oh, you want a little preview? Okay, here you go…
Just as an FYI – if you use a feed reader, such as Google or FeedDemon, Kristina’s Confections now will (well, should) show up with the correct title and all.
It took a little work on my end. Turns out writing computer jargon is not as easy as baking cupcakes or decorating sugar cookies. Well, at least not for this girl.
Anyway, go ahead. You know you want. Subscribe!!!
