A good indicator that this girl is growing up? The evolution of my text messages with friends. (In case an anthropologist ever studies my communication and tries to make some broad statements about my personal growth and development)
Middle School: no text messaging...only AIM and personal phone lines

What are you making for dinner?
Who would of thought? Life changes, but I am forever grateful that I have wonderful friends that I chat with about anything and everything. Even the little details like dinner.
I only made a half batch of the cornbread, but it blew up in the skillet and was super fluffy. I thought the batter was pretty bland, so I added some honey and sea salt and it turned out fantastic. I paired it with the soup (I added some extra spice and a couple drops of liquid smoke) and a little DIY toppings and dinner was served. This was so easy I felt like I was cheating.
The soup was a perfect serving for two, but we had plenty of cornbread left over.
Cornbread with breakfast, cornbread with lunch (Amy's vegetarian chili)...
I wish I could send leftovers via text message. You technology people should make an App or something.
What makes you realize you're actually an adult? Taxes, being called "Mrs", using eye cream, Spanx, seeing girls half your age at Forever 21 and realizing that you are the outsider, getting a discounts on your car insurance for driving for 10+ years, reading the newspaper, buying wine and not getting carded, buying furniture at places besides IKEA and Craigslist....
Have you ever made cornbread from scratch? I can't remember, but I want to try it.
Favorite kind of soup? Anything from a Thai restaurant
