This weather is exactly why I refuse to wash my car in the winter. I keep getting sh*t from multiple people about how I need to wash my car. But here’s the thing, why in the hell would I spend money on someone putting water on my car when it falls from the sky every other week? Sure, there are salts on the road that can rust it, but I have personally never had that issue. Ever. So when all these people are telling me to waste my money on water, I’m letting mother earth clean it instead. Like a little happy hippie. Take that, you dumb dumbs.

Remember how I told you that my car smelled really freaking bad? The smell has completely gone away. And I didn’t clean anything out or throw anything away. It just went away. My theory is that the garage smelled and the smell was just leaking into my car. But that’s just a theory. Obviously a spot on theory, if you ask me.

Speaking of garages, I can’t wait to have my own! I have been bombarded with requests from the lender during this house-closing process and have screamed into a pillow multiple times, but it’s so close I can almost taste it. And it tastes like new kitchen cabinetry and toilets that have never been sat on. It tastes good. Ew. Next week, I leave for Pittsburgh to finish up the last of the photography for my third cookbook, Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook and as soon as I get back, I will hand over our life savings and hope for the best. Buying a house is so scary and frustrating and stressful, but I could not be happier or more excited about it. And I especially can’t wait to share pictures with you as we save money back up to decorate the place. Just like Fashion Fridays and Weekly Workouts, I plan on sharing some house decor and maybe even some DIY projects as I get each room set up! As of right now, I’m super excited to fix up the dining room and a vanity area in the bedroom. Ooo it’s going to be so fun. So girly. And did I mention fun? Just you wait! But don’t freak out if you hate everything other than food, there will still be plenty of weekly recipes shared on the blog. Don’t go getting your panties in a twist.

I did something for the first time in 4 years yesterday: I went to the dentist. I know I know, get your life together Juli. I don’t know why I hadn’t gone in so long, I honestly just kind of forgot about it. But I’m getting older and even though I’m a good flosser, I could just tell that I needed a deep cleaning. I am SO glad I went. Other people probably wouldn’t notice, but I see a huge difference in my teeth. And I take care of my body in so many other ways, why wouldn’t I take care of my mouth? So this is your friendly reminder to go to the dentist, because even though it kind of sucks having someone digging in your face with plastic gloves on, not having teeth later on in life sucks more.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I just built my first house last fall and having never sat on toilets and never used showers was probably one of my favorite parts! Haha

    Can’t wait to see your decorating posts. I still have a lot to decorate and I’ve been moved in for 6 months! Hoping to get some good ideas!

  2. I went to the dentist yesterday too! I’m good about brushing and flossing but I swear my teeth look whiter today. And they feel so smooth!

  3. I can’t wait to start seeing your DIY and new home posts! I just closed on mine last week, but this house is a previously owned home… we’ve always had new before. So #1 thing on our to-do list…. BUY NEW TOILETS! Then we’ll tear out the kitchen. Girl’s gotta have priorities, ya know?

  4. I’m in the process of buying a house too and it is so fun and so stressful all at the same time! I can’t stop pinning on pinterest and cant wait to see all of your new home posts!

    1. lol i can’t stop pinning either, but it makes it depressing because I know we won’t be able to decorate for a little while haha

  5. As a hygienist who reads your posts (nearly) daily, this one makes me especially happy! 🙂 I still don’t understand why people don’t think of the mouth as part of the body/overall health… It is how most things enter your body, after all.

  6. Hi Juli, I’m proud that you went to the dentist! Stay on schedule with recalls so maybe you will never have to visit someone like me. I’m a periodontist (gum specialist)…one of those scary dentists 🙂 . In all seriousness, we are not all so bad, but it’s far better to prevent problems than have to deal with them!!! Love your blog and recipes!!! Can’t wait for the new cookbook!!!

  7. Just made the meat using chicken thighs, and am making the fried rice tonight. That is, if I can stay out of the meat! Yum!

  8. I love cauliflower rice and I love pork. This one looks like it’s a keeper. And the dentist… well, let’s just say I might be double your time without going. Ugh. The agony. Thanks for the kick in the butt.

  9. I’m SO with you on the car washing front! I live in Los Angeles, where it only rains when I wash my car… and by “Rains” I mean, “Sprinkles just enough to make my car look messy but not enough to keep the Hollywood Hills from catching on fire every five minutes.” Stupid drought….

    I love your blog, by the way! You’re hilarious, and your recipes are awesome.
