5 Things I Love About Myself

Tagged by pregnant-with-ittybitty

I’ve been staring at this for almost an hour. The worst thing is, I really can’t think of five things I love about myself. But here goes nothing. 

  1. My eye color : If the sun hits them just right, they have little yellow specks in them.
  2. My empathy : I feel for everything. I will listen to anyone. I will care for anyone. I feel like, if you try and you are a good person, you deserve so much. (I wish more people were like me in this way)
  3. My cooking : I’ve been cooking since I was able to reach the stove. I’m constantly finding new combinations for food and new ideas. It’s about the only thing I’m amazingly creative with and I can actually piece decent thoughts together. 
  4. My hips : Even though they’re not even close to visible anymore, I can still feel them. I don’t know why, but I just love the shape of the bones and how my skin feels over them.
  5. My son : (I know, he’s not me but he came from me.) How I made something so very perfect and wonderful. I still have no idea how I did, but I’m thankful for him every day. 

I’m not going to tag anyone, since I did a mass tagging in my 10 facts post. Basically, if you see this and you feel loving to yourself, post it!

Benjamin is almost 10 months old and he still doesn’t hold his bottle.

I keep getting told, “You should start weaning him off his bottles and get him to use cups.” How the fuck do you suppose I do that? It’s not that he can’t hold his bottle, because he will after he eats and he just wants to play with it. But he’s a lazy mooch who won’t hold it to eat. I’ve tried. I just sat it in front of him many times and haha. He just cries and screams bloody murder until you put it in his mouth. I’m not putting my child through that. 

He’ll learn to hold his cup in his own fucking time just like sleeping fully through the night. I don’t need to fucking train him. Just fuck the fuck off.

Nutella Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Fluffy Nutella Cream Cheese FrostingIngredients
Dark Chocolate Cupcakes 
1 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons table salt
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1 1/4  cups buttermilk
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Nutella Cupcake Filling
1/3 cup Nutella
1/4 cup melted butter
Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened (I like to use 1/4 cup salted and 1/4 cup unsalted)
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup Nutella
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350 F. Line two standard cupcake tins with paper cupcake liners. 

In a large bowl, whisk together cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. 

Whisk in eggs, yolk, water, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. 

Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each about halfway. Bake cupcakes, rotating tins halfway through, until a cake tester inserted into the centers comes out clean. About 20 minutes. 

Let cool completely. 

Nutella Cupcake Filling 

Combine the melted butter and nutella until it’s almost a liquid. Pour the mixture into a pastry bag. Insert the tip into the center of each cupcake and squeeze until you feel you have enough mixture in each center. 

Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting

In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter and cream cheese on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 4 - 5 minutes. Add the nutella and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Add powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time and continue to whip until pale and fluffy.

10 Facts!

Tagged by tired-mommy
*I’m so horrible at these things. I have no idea what kind of facts people want to know. So here’s some really random facts about yours truly.

  1. I absolutely love the smell of a brand new Scotch-Bright dish sponge. I will take it out of the package and just take a deep inhale before using it. I have no idea why I love it so much.
  2. I’ve had a total of 11 cats, 1 dog, 7 robo-hamsters, 2 gerbils and 1 ferret in my life so far. As far as I know, 6 of the cats, the dog and the ferret are still alive and well. 
  3. I call Benjamin a little Seahorse because at his gender scan, the very first image I saw of him, was his spine and he looked like a seahorse. 
  4. Benjamin’s name came from two Star-Trek captains. Benjamin Sysko of DS-9 and of course James Tiberius Kirk. This was Josh’s idea, and seemed to be the only name we could agree on. 
  5. I hate writing in blue ink. I will write in any other color possible, but I will switch pens if possible when it’s blue. 
  6. I haven’t lived in a place for over a year since I was 14. (7 years.) And moved a total of 11 times, spanning over four states.
  7. I plan to become a preschool teacher. Right now I’m taking classes for my CDA certificate to get a better resume to get a job in a daycare. Once I get a job, I’ll be starting classes for my associates.
  8. My hair has never been longer than the middle of my chest and collar bone and hasn’t been it’s natural color since I was 12. It’s been shaved once. 
  9. I am the same height as my husband and I absolutely love it. He’s easy to kiss and since I can reach longer than he can, he has to ask me for help. It’s wonderful! (He doesn’t like it very much.)
  10. I always have paint on my nails. Sometimes it’s badly chipped, but once one nail is bare, I repaint them. 

And I tag(and I’m going to tag a lot because I love so many of you)!;
