1) I love dancing. I haven't met a a dance floor I didn't love. I can do the electric, salsa, the chicken, swing, the macarena, skank, the dougie, mosh, the cha cha slide, the truffle shuffle, but mostly just fake it 'til I make it. I was even chosen out of many (at least 20 girls) to be in the (eerily prophetic) Deep in the Heart of Texas dance number during our high school variety show. Naturally, zumba was a no-brainer for me, right?
Well to all of you, my "friends" (and I use that term loosely), who high-fived me on the dance floor, or gave me a winning grin and a thumbs-up to keep on moving - You got some 'SPLAINING to do!! After years of affirmation, I discover now, at the age of 31, that I suffer from Terminal White Disease.

2) Crossed off my bucket list: Making my own butter
3) I love real food. And unrelated to the ridiculously delicious raw butter overdose this week, I'll be diving right back into Zumba tomorrow at 10. My favorite part is freestyle.
I totally got this. Pass me 'nother biscuit. *I did it. Twice now. Twice the dancing. Twice the embarrasment. And twice the glory. Zumba is awesome.
5) A couple more things I can finally cross off my bucket list, AND, start doing on the regular:
Homemade Sourdough Bread!!!
Once I got my sourdough starter all bubbly and ready to go (in only 3 days!) the bread part was simple.
My kitchen smelled like fresh baked bread for 2 days while it was rising!!
I'm not sure if it was related, but after 2 slices of this sourdough at lunch, I had absolutely no hunger at dinnertime. I have heard that it keeps you fuller longer, but wow. This stuff is go-OOOD!
I used some of the leftover starter to make some sourdough pancakes for breakfast.
They were just a vessel for getting more butter in my mouth.
And I also finally got around to making homemade yogurt for the first time!! So easy but I was so intimidated for so long!
I really need to invest in some more jars. Or figure out how to get the darn labels off...
6) The kids are even more excited about all the homemade food they get than I am!!!!
7) Jason left for England yesterday morning. And since I can make a mess of the house guilt-free, I pulled out the sewing machine to finish the kids Christmas morning jammie pants. Are we still at least within the Christmas season????
They are so painfully homemade
But I think the print makes them fun enough that I don't care how poorly they fit her!!
