Five Posts I Never Wrote

Anyone else have a whole bunch of "drafts" sitting in their Blogger or Wordpress account that they look at occasionally, but never finish?  Both of my hands are raised for sure.  The worst part for me, is that for many of them, I even have the photos - I just never got around to writing the posts for one reason or another.  I still use 2010 iPhoto on my Mac Book and create folders for all of my photos.  My most pulled from is "future blog" where I drop everything I think I'll use for blog posts.  I also have CHS Restaurants, House Updates, Food Photos, etc.  Right after the new year, I decided to clean out these folders, and I found photos from years ago.  It was pretty funny, actually.  Here's what I never got around to:

Charleston restaurants: While there are tons of amazing, popular restaurants in the city, there are also those spaces constantly rotating.  We love trying new places, and unfortunately, a couple like Leaf and Lee Lee's Hot Kitchen shut down before I got the chance to hit publish.  Sadly, even a couple of places I have written about, Parlor Deluxe and DeSano have closed recently, too.
Girl Crack: When Mike and I took our bridal party to Maine for a bonding trip before our wedding (summer of 2014 - haha), we learned one of Mike's groomsmen's secret talent: he can bake!  He brought up this delicious dessert that we deemed "girl crack."  Imagine rice krispie treats but made with golden grahams and way more delicious.  So good.  We went at that mountain of crack all weekend (in addition to the tons of other food on our "snack table").  I've been meaning to put up the recipe, but I know that if I make it to take more photos, I will eat the whole thing!
Makeup finds:  A couple years ago, I bought these great spring 2015 e.l.f. products at Target.  I still use (what's left), but alas, more photos I took and never posted. Apparently, the line must be popular because you can still buy a similar eye kit here and lots of shadow colors here.
Home updates: Before we left our house in Connecticut, we had plans for a lot of remodeling.  We even signed a contract for new windows literally days before I was offered my job in Charleston.  Same with the apartment: before we decided to build our home, we had ideas to make our apartment feel more like home with little updates.  I took some before pictures...then we moved.
Shrimp scampi: This recipe will probably still get posted, but I thought it was a funny story.  Working with Sutter Home, I totally misread the instructions.  I had applied for campaigns for both a DIY and a recipe, and I thought I was accepted for the recipe campaign.  I made my scampi, photographed it... then looked at my email again... I was supposed to do the DIY.  At least now I have another post I can put together pretty easily!

Girl, I've got so many posts in the "draft mode" that are ready to publish that I haven't hit publish on for one reason or another. I'm right there with you!

I do totally have posts that are sitting in my draft and sadly enough I have pictures for it, but cannot get around to publishing them. I know I need to prep them so that when I need a quick post I can just hit publish and breath easy!
