Coconut Cake with Whipped Frosting (and My First Trip to Disneyland!)
I WENT TO DISNEYLAND FOR THE FIRST TIME and I am hashtag blessed. I went with some experienced Disney veterans and I’m so glad, because one thing I discovered is that Disney is a giant, whimsical STRATEGY GAME OF DOOM.
There are plenty of people drifting around like so much flotsam and jetsam in a sea of mouse-eared confusion. They end up in interminable lines and make the mistake of bothering with Autopia. They probably have fun. But then there are these OTHER people … people who straight up DO DISNEY.
THEY HAVE PLANNED. THEY HAVE PREPARED. MAXIMIZING FUN IS THEIR MIDDLE NAME (it makes for awkward business cards, but they manage).
Tuna Melts in Avocado Boats
Okay so all my plants are dead. It’s been a few weeks since I planted them in preparation for last week’s post, which I say so that you know I didn’t kill them immediately. Just, uh, quickly.
LISTEN, I WATERED THEM and I tried not to water them too much and I put them in the sun and I took them out of the sun and I whispered affirmations to them each morning. And they all died.
BUT I’M NOT GIVING UP.

How to Create a Cute Edible Garden in a Tiny Studio Apartment
Hi, my name is Julie and I can kill a plant in three days flat. NO SERIOUSLY: some people joke that they have a black thumb but then you find out they have cute little succulents thriving all around their cute little apartment. LIES.
Meanwhile my last struggling cactus keeled over a month ago. In the words of Demetri Martin: I am less nurturing than a desert.
UNTIL NOW. I’m turning over a new leaf, y’all. Maybe. I hope.
Sheet Cake with the BEST Cookies and Cream Whipped Icing Recipe
I bought a ticket a long time ago for a concert I wanted to see in San Diego in March. Every time I’ve thought about the concert, I’ve thought about how far away March is and how much longer I still have until I have to google the venue and sort out parking. Yesterday it finally hit me: wait, it IS March. It’s March right now. And the concert was definitely . . . last Thursday night.
