My jokes trump my cooking

I'm known to laugh at my own jokes. The loudest. What can I say, I'm funny. Right? Say right. Well, whateva. My jokes, comments and stories are entertaining to me and if you're cool, you get me and laugh too. I can't promise that I won't laugh the loudest or hardest though because, well, it's hard to deny my comedic genius. So what if only me and my 3-year old niece get it.

Last week, Steven and I decided to make dinner. It was the first time we've cooked together since we got married 75 days ago. I know, we are so not domestic. Correction, I am so not domestic. As I began preparing the rice and uncorking the wine bottle, I mentioned to him that I already had preheated the oven. Knowing that my only specialty in the kitchen is wonderfully toasted bread, he looked at me and said "Ummm, who's cooking? Me or you?" I attempted to prove him wrong and magically whip up a gourmet meal, but I had to be honest, we'd probably end up at In-n-out had I taken a power trip. I would have burned everything. So, yes, my husband cooked us a yummy meal that night. And I'm okay with that because I look a lot better sipping wine than I do wearing an apron. Plus, I'm funny. And who needs to cook when you're funny?

Since I'm still reeling from the workshop I attended a few days ago, here's an image taken of me by the amazing Meegan, another photographer I was blessed to meet. Happy Thursday!

Girl, can't agree with you more! I'm the same way. Skilled with witty remarks but lacking domestic skills. It's my next quest. Or sit looking cute sipping a Pinot grigio, you know whatever works :)

I have faced the same cold truth long ago: biting wit and cooking endeavors just don't mesh. ehhh, over it.

I love that sassy little hip-action pic! You are to cute. Stealing your wardrobe, k?

The man once accused me of false advertisement because I cooked a big meal when first started dating but not on a regular basis. Um, his birthday was a week after we met...what was a sistah suppose to do?
