Whatcha Want?

by Heather on February 23, 2010

Good morning everyone!  How are you now that it’s not Monday anymore?  I know I felt a lot better about life this morning… :)

Last night’s dinner was soooooooooooo good!  I would very highly recommend this sandwich from Eating Well any time since it rocked my face!

We served it (the Hot Chile Grilled Cheese, that is) with a bowl of fresh fruit salad – strawberries, blueberries, and orange.  SO good and SO colorful!

Here’s the side view of the sandwich.  It doesn’t do it justice though…the only thing I would change is a TAD more salt (because that’s how I roll).  Also, if you are married to guy like Nate or Mr. How Sweet who really just wants meat, grill a chicken breast, and butterfly it and add it.  Nate enjoyed his as well!

Right after dinner I hit up the grocery store for some much needed shopping.  I went with a full-blown list this time, and it was a quick and relatively short trip…hurray!  And I got to talk to my parents which is always a huge plus :)  I love them :)  While I was there I found this tea, which sounded fabulous:

Honestly, this was the perfect dessert…and no sugar/sweetener needed!  I had my peach tea in a Waikiki Beach Starbucks mug…I think I’m ready for summer!  I made something awesome last night…but I can’t share it yet since it’s a surprise for someone else!  Can’t wait to share tonight!  We finished up the night with some snuggling and went to sleep around 11, which is actually really good for us!  GO SLEEP!

I got up this morning a little sore, so I did 30 minutes of yoga instead of 30-Day Shred.  Hopefully I can do the shred tonight before community group!  Breakfast was a breakfast cookie…I haven’t had one in so long!

This one was really good…I don’t know what I did differently, but there was almost a hard shell on the outside and the inside was super gooey and yummy.  Whatever it was I’m glad it happened!  We got to work early today, and I had a mug of my favorite tea with a fabulous message on the paper:

I think this was a cool message to share with everyone today, no?  Wisdom is an invaluable tool, and the good news is we all have some.  I’m so thankful for the wisdom that you all share on here every day!

My question today is super important to me.  One of my biggest reasons for having this blog is to continue to facilitate community and interaction among the people who read this blog.  The question is:  what would you like to see more of on here?  Pictures, nutritional info, product reviews, recipes…you name it!  I want to make sure that I’m giving back to the community that’s given so much to me! :)

That grilled cheese looks amazing. Yum.

I think you should post/write about what’s in your heart, girl. I remember wanting to ask a similar question on my blog at the beginning because I wanted it to grow faster. My hubby convinced me not to. He said it needs to be what I want it to be, since I love it so much. If you are true to yourself, the community will grow! :)

My yogi tea inspiration today is “The beauty of life is to experience yourself”

With so many food blogs today, I love to see a more personal side to any blog – pictures of life, people, yourself… only if you feel comfortable. I know there are some that keep a pretty tight seal, but I always love to see and read more about the author! =)

Hey Heather! My advice for the blog is…stick to your instinct. Don’t change it for anyone but yourself. So….my question is…what direction do YOU want to take the blog in!? ;) You’re giving back to the community just by being honest and being yourself! Keep at it girl

I gotta agree with the ones who said “what do YOU want”!? I like tons of blogs for all different reasons, but it’s obvious when people really love blogging and put time and effort into it (oops, I’ve been slacking here lately). I read some for simple everyday meal ideas, others for crazy & interesting recipes, some for entertainment, some because I like their humor/personality and I think we would be friends in real life (is that creepy?), etc. I like reading yours :D keep it up!

I agree with Jessica! Write whats in your heart!

Your blog is for you. If you love what you do and what you write about, readers will love you too! :)

Crap. I was caught up in my love for Hawaii and forgot to answer your question.

I love your blog because it is just about you. Write what makes you feel inspired and happy. For real.

I always love seeing recipes but really just love to keep up with your life. I don’t think that makes me weird just honest :)

I need to make one of those cookies!

The sandwich and teh tea both look good!

The blog question is a good question… I have the same question in mind and honestly have no answer as I am still figuring out what it is that I want to get out of the blogs.

I like your current blogging style – whatever you feel like writing for the day.

I really like the fruit teas from Celestial Seasonings – my favorite is the blueberry one.

I think your blog is great. Recipes are always good. What you are already doing is fantastic.

Just wanted to let you know that it takes a few hours for your posts to show up in my feed. Not sure why.

That grilled cheese sounds (and looks) UH-mazing!!!

I agree with the other posters– do what YOU want to do, because otherwise, you’ll get tired of it! :-)

I know it has been said already, but take the blog wherever YOU want it go. One of the most appealing aspects to your blog is how honest you are, in such a graceful & kind manner. You are real and I think many of us relate to so many of the things you write and feel. To me that is one of the most important things one can do to give back to the supportive community.
