Behavior modified

It’s funny how things turn for the better when you set yourself a goal. Full credit to my husband for the tough love since I’m fuckin way too sensitive. I didn’t realize that all things adds  up with tiny purchases- and I’m able to see now the bigger scheme of things, as opposed to the loser behavior of looking at things in smaller batches,  and living life to what society dictates and suffer later.

I love our life, our lifestyle and it fulfills me that our vision together is motivation to have a better life, and not to look at others lives. It’s fulfilling to see that we don’t have debts, never owed anyone money, etc.

new year, no debt

Unlike the majority of america starting this new month and new year, no january depression for me and my honey, no no no!

Why?

Because we did not insanely spend crazy last December. (Kinda sounded weird cos its only december yesterday)

After modifying our behavior specially the way i think, it has reinforced me to think weirdly about spending.

It blows my mind how my attitude shifted immensely after my hubby influenced me to watch dave ramsey. Marriage and money goes hand in hand and the more we communicate about our spending and financial fidelity the more i became more open and communicative to him. I am not even one of those spend crazy women but i know that all those impulse buys at ross, or target thinking “i deserve it” adds up.

nailing the fluffy fudgy chocolate cupcake

 

brownieI have to give this to my husband who critiques my baking, and I took it to heart to figure out the secret to a fluffy cupcake, I hope this one works this time. Because if i still went on with my insane method i’d be feeding him rocks instead.

Introducing, my fluffy 3x sifted goodness of fudgy beautiful mess.

Method: include the sugar with the dry ingredients and mix it before dumping the room temp butter as I mix.  the expert i sought to mentioned that the batter should have a a mousse-like consistency, not the usual watery dripping mess I’m so used to.

(because I am lazy to clean up hahaaha)

cupcake

what could have been improved with this mixture:

  1. it should stay in the oven for 15 mins, vertically because my oven is weird.
  2. don’t put the water underneath it anymore.
  3. i ordered a cake flour for next time hahahaha
