And Now For Something Completely Different...
I'm about to do something really weird and it might freak you out a little, but I think we need to have a heart to heart. I love this blog and all the people that read it. Like LOVE. But I have this little issue. And that's that I have this double life going on and I don't know if I can keep it up much longer! Here's the scoop. I am just one person, and like all people, there's lots of facets to me. Oh, yes, I'm a complex gal. You see as you know me I'm all Adoption Girl and Save Africa and everything. And that's true and real. But there's another part of me you don't know. The truth is that there's more to me than that, and my blog just has to show it or I'm all stifled. So here's the real deal. In addition to being Adoption Girl, I'm also a sugar fiend, a design nut, a photographer, and avid Flylady enthusiast, a Christian, and a mess. And I think it's time you got to know the real me. Because I bet most of you are just like me. If you really want to talk adoption all the time there are so many awesome blogs that do that. And if you really want to talk recipes and crafts and design all the time there are so many awesome blogs that do that. But if you can handle it, I'd like to do both. Maybe the internet has room for something like that. We're still going to give $1 every week to a new family adopting from Africa. That's the whole point, people! We'll do that on Monday, but every other day we'll be talking straight from my heart. Of course there will still be adoption and Africa and Jesus in there because I'm still writing it, but if you don't mind, right now I'd like to talk about rice krispy treats. :)
The Modern Marigold is one of my favorite blogs and Amanda has started doing this super fun thing where every week we have to actually DO something we saw on Pinterest and blog about it. Then we link up. And I just have to play! So this is what I did. Brown Butter Pumpkin Spiced Rice Krispy Treats. Kind of lame because that's what Amanda did last week, but I was out of inspiration and they just looked pretty good. And they were, really good. I recommend. They were easy peasy and the kids thought they were fancy, but not too fancy to eat a whole pan in one day. Here's the pin I found it on. But here's another rice krispy fave. Cake Batter Rice Krispies. I love those.
Now, hang with me while we try out this new weird format. I really want to get to know you guys too. I'm sure Lindsay, our mama of the week is freaking out right now, so if you haven't given your $1 yet, please do to reassure her that it's all going to be ok if we cut up a little too! We're going to be a dynamic group of girls that can whip up a wicked rice krispy treat and still fund an adoption a week. No problemo! Right? Can I get an amen if you don't think this is way too wacky?
