Beauty comes to those who have been waiting for something that is bigger than themselves.

I made black bean burgers for my family tonight. I'm sure many of you cook a lot, but I don't really have that much creativity when it comes to making up new food dishes. I just end up eating the same thing again and again until I get sick of it or go out to Subway. I am quite boring and uncreative when it comes to trying new foods. I mean, I am willing to TRY it, but if I know that I am going to Olive Garden, I will always get the Five Cheese Ziti because I KNOW it is going to be good! I am trying to get out of this habit, but sometimes you just don't want to take that chance of getting a dish you won't like, you know?
Plus, I've gone through a lot of those experiences with food where I hate the entire restaurant because the one dish I ordered was basically the freakiest item on the menu.
Oh, well. I guess I like what I like. I know I like vintage clothing.. you don't see me changing that or trying anything new anytime soon, do you? haha.. an old horse stuck in her ways!
I really hope you have a lovely thanksgiving to everyone who reads this. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting, you all are so special. I am having Thanksgiving at a BAR! (haha, I'll tell you later.)

I love the whole look, you are adorable. Black bean burgers sounds good. I'm not good with the kitchen, I have no idea how to cook, but I do love to bake. =) Have a yummy day.

oh man, i've always loved his voice--but i've only met a few other people who do, or who didn't have to "get past it for the purpose of listening to the lyrics."
there's something about it that just seems so raw and real, and i don't think his lyrics could suit another voice. :)
anyways, i love that cd too. good pick.

The quote at the top of this post is really so lovely! It is an uplifting thing to think of when you've been working hard at something, too. I sympathize with you about the cooking thing. I too tend to like eating the same thing all the time. The problem is that I'll look forward to it, so much so that then if I don't have it/try something different, I'm always so disappointed. :P

Also, your blog banner is so pretty!

Your little lace gloves are so so so cute! And i love Bright Eyes so much!

By the way, I looked through your flickr page for your artwork. I love your fashion dolls!!! They are so cute! And you oil painting are lovely too. I had no idea you were such a wonderful little artist! :)

P.s. Happy Thanksgiving!

Lovely photos, Polly! :) I hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving (in a bar! hehe). I know where you're coming from with not really wanting to try new things at restaurants! If there is something I LOVE on the menu, I tend to always order it! I never change it up! Until I try what someone else ordered & really love that... and then I start to always order THAT... haha.
