Go For It

Alright so I just sent in my application to Chopped as a Mom Amateur Cook. Not even joking! I am so serious right now. I had been thinking about it for some time, but it just seemed unrealistic with everything I had going on. But then I saw the ad again on Twitter and I thought, “hmmm…??” So I pulled up the application. I’ve had the tab open for a few days now, but I didn’t fill out the application. Why? I don’t know. I think apart of me felt ridiculous. I’m not a chef. I may not even get called. This could be a waste of time. But then the why not kept coming up. I mean really why not? There are so many things I wanna do and being on Chopped is one of them. From what I’ve learned over the past few months, time is super precious! I got this J-Pouch to help experience life since Colitis was holding me back from just about everything. And what if I did get on Chopped, even if I didn’t win, it would be great exposure for the blog and my non-profit idea. And what if I did win? So my cutting skills are up to par…they do have a section for moms and amateurs. Those sound like a category of folks that are in your same shoes.

Well I’ve spent the past few days watching episodes of Chopped, studying it like never before to see if it is something that I could really do. Then I mentioned it to my grandmother the other day. I fully expected her to say, “Girl, you better get to writing on that blog or editing someone’s music video!” LOL! You know, my voice of reason. Well she was the voice of reason. She said, “It can’t hurt! You should do it!” LOL! Soooo… I did. Just now. I typed a few words and then I clicked SUBMIT. And it sent. Lord have dibs! Why am I nervous?! HAHAHA! Well, I hope I make it! I hope this Crazy Creole Mommy makes the Chopped cut! Pray for your girl! Maybe I should start practicing now! 🙂
