Show & Tell Tuesday: Intro and Resolutions

I'm continuing my current trend of getting my posts up a day late and posting my Show & Tell Tuesday post today, on a Wednesday. This link-up is hosted by Momfessionals and today we're introducing ourselves and sharing our resolutions.
I'm Shoshanah. I'm originally a California girl from Long Beach, part of L.A. county. After graduating from a tiny liberal arts college in Maryland, I wasn't quite ready to move back home and instead went to grad school at Louisiana State University. (Hence my very clever blog name!) Little did I know I'd meet my husband in a math class and still be in Louisiana almost 10 years later.
The boy and I have been married 4 years. Just over a year ago we welcomed our baby girl, who goes by Elley on the blog, into the world. She is pretty much the most awesome, most adorable baby in the world, although my opinion might be just a tiny bit biased.

As for me, I love desserts and baking, although lately can't seem to find the time to make that happen. My husband has converted me into a LSU fan, but I think it's hard to live in Baton Rouge and not be brainwashed that way. I love to read pretty much anything, although tend to prefer historical fiction. I do still manage to get my reviews posted on the blog, just maybe not as timely as they used to be. My movie reviews have pretty much disappeared, although I do still love going to the movies when possible. (I've actually never written an about me section for the blog, but with a little work this post could easily turn into one.)
So excited for the new @Starbucks s'mores frapp! #plusafreecookiestraw
As for resolutions, besides writing an about me section, well I don't normally make them. I can't actually think of the last time I have. But this past year has been crazy and I still feel like I'm catching up. Which is why I'd really like to simplify this year as well as get a little more organized. For example, while I may have enjoyed watching Galavant last week when I was on maternity leave, doesn't mean I have to watch the new season. That's simplifying right? Especially since it comes on the same time as Downton Abbey which is definitely the priority.

Part of the reason that I want to simplify and organize myself is because I really want to get back to blogging more regularly. It's definitely taken a hit this past year and while I'm happy with so many of the changes in my life, I kind of miss it. So here's to kicking things off on the right foot!

What are some of your resolutions for this year? Also, it's you're stopping by from Show & Tell Tuesday, be sure to say hello!


  1. One of my resolutions is too get back into blogging too!!

  2. I don't make resolutions, instead I focus on goals as I feel like there is a more positive connotation with goals whereas resolutions often feel like they are made to be broken! I have some reading and fitness goals but one goal I am most excited about is carving out one day of the month where I only do things I want to do, not things I feel I 'should' do.

  3. I've been trying to get more organized this year too so I got a paper planner. Life gets so crazy when babies are involved. :)

  4. So fun to have you stop by for Show & Tell Tuesday! I love finding new blogs from link ups.

    I love that your wedding day and my engagement day overlap! We have two babes now and cannot wait to add more!

    Looks like all you need is another Starbucks trip and your about me section will be done!

  5. I'm making "monthly goals" this year instead of resolutions. Also, thank you sooooo much for introducing me to The Pink Carnation series. It's been one of my favourites this past year.
