Who Ate All the Cashews???

If you’ve ever opened a can of mixed nuts only to find it 2/3 empty AND the 1/3 that’s left is ALL almonds then congratulations; you’re a parent!


Guy and I always load up the fridge and pantry before Buck Wheat comes home for breaks. I like to think of it as just being good parents. It's sweet to have all a kids favorites on hand when they come home; to make them feel loved!


That’s not why we do it, but it sounded sweet!


No, we don’t load up on Buck Wheat’s favorite foods out of love or caring for the kid. We do it so she won’t eat all of OUR stuff!


It didn’t work!


Three straight days of “who ate the last of the shrimp salad?”


I got used to the disappointment and started learning how to satisfy my hunger eating that whatever she left behind! I assumed all that was over when I dropped her off at the airport.


I should have checked the mixed nuts!


Enough of that though, because that was hardly the first time in my life when I opened up something and got something else! If that hasn’t happened to YOU before, it’s about to!


For the last few months here, I’ve been telling you about the new work that I’m doing at Benjamin Moore. That work goes on and I continue to be excited about it and am looking forward to sharing more of it with you in the coming months.


But a funny thing happened on the way to the alter!


At the same time that I was speaking with Benjamin Moore about a podcast schedule for them I was also having conversations with other paint manufacturers (HEY, I had no idea where my conversations with any of these companies was going to go, I needed to keep my options opened). One of those companies was a dealer-owned paint manufacturing company called C2.
