    You are BRAVE girl – letting everyone see your MESS *gasp* hahah

    My office is worse than your laundry room with show stuff right now. I need to carve out some time to clean it up so I can feel productive again.

    I have totally gained weight and my house isn’t nearly as clean as it used to be – OH WELL. I think your video blogging is great so keep it up.

    I think you are hilarious, and your messy laundry room actually made me laugh and feel better about my messy laundry room. If you have to do less post to keep your sanity, we will understand. We’ll miss you, but understand. jancd

    Don’t worry Leslie, I am right there with you. Between kids, my school work, endless laundry, cooking and cleaning I am short on time. Sometimes I seriously consider stopping the blog. I’m on the fence.

    I was popping in to see how you liked the EGO light and was thrilled to see you showed it in your video post. Yay you!!

    It crept up slowly but surely… 10 pounds. Grrr… but I can’t stop baking, it’s my only enjoyment in an otherwise ridiculously stressed out life.

    Have a delicious day 🙂

    It did not want to be a depreciation, but I meant that for me it would be difficult to have every week a ww day!! I’m sorry for misunderstanding! Elga

    Hi Leslie,
    Glad your back with your video posts. Yes, it’s hard to juggle everything at home and the blog. If I could just hire someone to clean my house and do my laundry and put it away I’d be such a happy girl! I don’t post more than 3x a week. More than that, I’d seriously get NOTHING done.

    Let me know how you like your eco light. I bought one a few months ago and prefer the natural light pictures over the ones with the light. I’m probably not utilizing right! Maybe it’s just me!

    Have a great day!

    I totally agree with you! My house is a mess, I’ve gained soooo much weight, it’s all the cakes and brownies Mmmmm, but I’m going on holiday next week, bikini, eek!

    I tend to find that if I’m baking something, I write the draft of the recipe whilst it’s cooking and then write the other bits in later when I have photos, hope that helps???

    Well, it’s good to know I’m not alone in all this food blogging has consumed a lot of my time and neglected everything else in my house. ha! I thought I was the only one. Thankfully I haven’t put on the weight, but a lot of things in the house are neglected. Don’t get me wrong this food blogging thing is great and it’s an obession I love; a happy obession you know.
    I need to get a video camera so I can show you MY messes! OY

    Leslie! You are totally cracking me up!!! You are TOO funny! Yes, I think we ALL have the same issue! Between baking, 3 kids, 2 dogs and a hubby, my house is trashed. Blogging is MORE fun!!

  17. 17

    Lol, blogging is taking over your life?! What are you talking about?! 😉 I know what you mean…my husband does the laundry now…and he doesn’t mind it because he gets to eat what I bake (and usually it’s edible, not always :)!

    BTW, what light was it that you said you were using? I moved and don’t have my little photo studio set up anymore and don’t know what I should buy to recreate it :).

    Not only is my laundry room a mess but it is also old,decrepit and needs to be redone. I love your blog! I am too consumed by blogging,reading blogs and cooking. You just reminded me that I need to get off the computer, get some housework done and go for a run.

    Pam:Thanks..making the videos is fun!

    Jancd: The messy laundry room is totally stressing me out!

    Colleen: The purse is a Kate Spade is pretty dran cute.

    sometimes the blog rules my life too haha!

  21. 21

    You seriously are so funny! I love your video posts! Your laundry room is nothing compared to my house at the moment, it is a disaster zone, I need to get away from the computer and go clean my messiness.

    Yes, the blog-o-sphere is an evil place that sucks too much time from our days. The weight gain is exactly why I don’t bake. At least with entrees i can a two person portion but baking makes it harder. Except for cookies. I make a huge batch of them, make little balls and freeze them. I’d rather waste a lot of gas baking 4 cookies than have two dozen sitting around!
