Women who TALK BACK will be SINGLE FOREVER unless they SUBMIT to a MAN

I rarely, rarely re-post these things. However, seeing as I am one “smart mouthed” female I resonated with this a lot. Worth a read!

Real News


Women who TALK BACK will be SINGLE FOREVER unless they learn to SUBMIT to a MAN

If you’re the type of woman who always has something smart mouthed to say, constantly speaking your mind when no one even asked your damn opinion in the first place, so quick to call a man out on something he did, told by males that you’re the type of woman who “loves to nag a man about what he isn’t doing right”, well then you are just everything life has to offer. You’re amazing young queen. You’re damn near perfect. You’re attractive as hell to a Mentality Mature Man. You’re just the type of woman a king wants, because a king wants a queen who can match his strength and speak life into him with her so-called smart mouth.

Fun Friday

It’s Friday, Friday gotta get down on Friday.


Now that that song is stuck in your head, commence Friday’s post.


It’s finally the 48 hours of sweet, sweet freedom every cube monkey salivates for all week. Fridays at work are a mixed bag. Time either stops or it flies by. My cube neighbor is on a solid “Funk Friday” bandwagon where he insists on playing funk music throughout the day. Needless to say, it’s an adventure.

Here are some things to help you make your Friday, or any day, Fun.

1. Cube Castle


Does this even warrant a description? If you don’t want to turn your cube into a castle, you need to get your head checked. I moved into a prime cube setup. It’s just me and another guy tucked into 2 cubes in the corner. The plans we’ve drafted for all the possible cube creations put the seven wonders of the world to shame.

2. Fro Yo Anyday Friday

Fro Yo

Again, no description needed. Fro Yo Friday, or any day, is pretty much guaranteed fun and happiness. You pick your fro yo flavors and can scoop all your toppings. AKA no telling the poor ice cream scooper to keep dumping M&Ms on your ice cream. It’s quite embarrassing to ask for more toppings. With fro yo you can have the tiniest amount of fro yo and TONS of toppings. Pure bliss.

3. Listening To My Super Sweet Work Playlist

Uhmm if you haven’t listened to this playlist, you are missing out. Check it out here: Cubelandia Survival Playlist

4. Take Endless Buzzfeed Quizzes

What spirt animal are you? When will you get married? How lazy are you? Who’s your 90s cartoon BFF?

Buzzfeed quizzes tell you A LOT about yourself. Take a few and discover a whole new side to yourself. It’s also a great way to learn more about your fellow cube mates. Gchat a couple good ones and you can truly find out just who you sit next to.


The moral of this post is don’t take life too seriously. Don’t dictate your day by some routine. Mix it up. Life is meant to be enjoyed. These are just a few ways to make your day fun. I try to do something little everyday that’s out of my normal realm of activities. Whether it’s going for a walk in the park, scheming up a new cube game, decorating from the free table, or finding some semblance of summer, do something fun, for yourself, every day.

^^ Point #5 was SUPER corny sounding. Sorry guys I didn’t mean to go all Hallmark on you. I just want to make sure everybody is making a conscious effort to enjoy life. ^^

Pantry Staples: Healthy Baking

As you’ve read, I make a lot of my own food from scratch. I also substitute things frequently in recipes. So here are my pantry staples for baking. Note these are only staples for my healthy baked goods. The fat kid treats have their own staples which I’ll touch upon in a later post.



This is the most organized this shelf has looked in a long time. Don’t be fooled.

1. Gluten Free Oats

6 months ago I was told to eliminate gluten from my diet. During this time period, I got REALLY creative with baked goods. The gluten free flours are treacherous. I did a lot of process of elimination to find a good one. If you are in the market for a decent all purpose gluten free flour, I highly recommend King Arthur’s Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. This is in almost every grocery store now and has the least weird flavor. Be sure to do your research on adapting regular gluten filled recipes for gluten free.

Anyways, it was during this time that I found gluten free oats. Not all oats are safe for a gluten free diet so you have to buy the ones labeled gluten free. These oats from Bob’s Red Mill are thicker than normal and have a decent texture. They don’t go to complete mush. I use these a lot in muffins, granola bars, and other quick breads.

2. Organic Whole Wheat Flour

I pick and choose what I buy organically. Flour is something I’ve recently started to buy organic. It honestly makes my baked goods better, especially using organic whole wheat flour. Any “quick bread” recipe that calls for white flour, I will either use all whole wheat or do 1/2 white, 1/2 whole wheat. Whole wheat flour adds some fiber and whole grains to the dish. My mom used King Arthur Flour growing up which means I use the same. I can’t use any other brand. I’m convinced stuff won’t taste the same.

WW Flour

I need a manicure and a better camera. Ignore both discrepancies please.

3. Ground Flaxseed

Isn’t this exciting guys?!? FLAX! Ground flax meal is an easy to addition to almost any baked good. It adds some fiber and omegas. If you have never cooked with flax before do some Googling on it. It’s nothing something you want to add too much of.


4. Unsweetened Flaked Coconut

You all know my love affair with coconut. Coconut oil, milk, or raw coconut I love it all. You can add unsweetened flaked coconut to a lot of baked goods. I’ll add some to muffins or even to cookies. It adds a nice texture and coconut is rich in the MCT fat I talked about yesterday. Sometimes I’ll even add it to smoothies or on top of yogurt.


5. Natural Applesauce (Just Apples – Nothing Else)

I cannot speak highly enough of applesauce. You can replace any oil / butter in a quick bread / brownie / muffin recipe with applesauce. You won’t notice a thing different. It saves you so much fat in a recipe. You can also use less sugar by replacing the oil / butter with applesauce. I would not recommend swapping applesauce for butter in things like cookies or cakes though.


6. Coconut Milk

More coconut! Surprised? I hope not. I will bake a lot with coconut milk because it helps any type of dish last longer. Plus, I love coconut anything. And no, this will not make your baked good taste like coconuts. It’s pretty much flavorless.


7. Real Good Vanilla Extract

A quality vanilla extract will change any dish. The higher the quality, the better the flavor. It’s one item I splurge on.


This is from my last trek to The Fresh Market. I do not shop there anymore because frankly it’s just not healthy. They put up a good front but it’s not filled with healthy stuff. 

8. Baking Quality Peanut Butter

Listen, I know I’m a big advocate for minimally processed food. However, if I were to buy the all natural PB every time I made a PB based baked good, I’d go broke. My fellow office mates are big fans of PB. So when I bake stuff for work I try to incorporate PB into whatever I bake. Those Peanut Butter Blondies I made used almost a whole jar of PB. It’s wild. Anyways, I try to look past the processed-ness and get Skippy’s Natural Peanut Butter. It’s less expensive and bakes really well. I try to keep a jar of smooth and a jar of chunky on hand at all times.


9. Pirate’s Booty for Good Luck

This is not what I use for baking. But this is what I snack on while I bake, especially with fat kid treats. To avoid eating all the ingredients and / or dough, I’ll portion out a serving of Pirates Booty to snack on. I LOVE this stuff. Seriously think I could live off of it.
