New Jobs and Pie.

 It’s Monday.

It’s also the first day of my new job…oh gaaaaash.

I’m going through a whirlwind of emotions, mostly anxiety, excitement, and nervousness.

Oh m gee.

This is my first really real job if ya know what I’m saying.

Like corporate status, yo.

I have so many what if’s going through my mind…what if they don’t like me, what if I am not good at my job, what if I tank this career?

No what if’s, Chels…pull it together.

It’s a job…you got this.

Plus, there’s always pie.

Pie has been there for me.

Pie will always be there for me.

It was there for me this past weekend when i had job anxiety and couldn’t sleep a wink.

But have you had brownie pie?


Yea…brownies…in pie form.


It’s all buttery, chewy, and gooey on the inside w/ a crisp outer edge.


I might even go as far to say that this might* be amazing topped w/ a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


That’s a huge might, though.


I mean, this pie is INTEEEEEENSE.


I’m pretty sure this will be my cure-all for every problem that I have now.


Plus, I kind of drizzled some extra chocolate on top and let it seep through the pie.


So, then it’s pretty much fudge heaven from there.




here’s to my first day at my new job.


Pie for everyone!

    You have just cured all my problems. This is going to be dessert tonight. Maybe dinner too. And breakfast tomorrow.

    Would a nut butter (like almond or peanut) be an appropriate substitute for the coconut butter?
