Wrap me up in Taylor Swift.


Time for another edition of … Things I made when I was working on Compendium Vol. 3! Today’s post : The wraps for team Tink’s dinner, and my final meal on set.. I’m going to be going through these in a random order, so bare with me people and I’ll get through them all.  As you all know, I tend to have a story for everything, and as the title suggests, this one involves my girl Taylor Swift.

As a true 90s child, I have a penchant for cheesy love song lyrics, and that of course puts me in the target audience for Taylor’s music. Every time I go through a bad break-up, conversing with Courtney or am driving anywhere with Carrie I listen to her music and it almost always cheers me up. Whether it’s her songs about revenge or new loves, or her way of reminiscing on past relationships.. I just.. love her.

Anyhow, this last week I had the chance to meet some of the new EBM13s and made fast friends with one Samantha Jewell. We spent two afternoons making sandwiches and wraps together singing Taylor Swift and other random tunes all afternoon and it was awesome, and I have yet another person to add to my TS singing roster. (Ellie, I didn’t forget you either!)

So because I was feeling fancy (and listening to her again as I write this), I thought I’d share some of my favorite lyrics from her new album Speak Now with ya’ll, mixed in between the wraps, enjoy!

Chicken Caesar Wraps

We forgot to take a picture of the chicken one so we made a make-shift one out of one of the veggie caesar wraps with cucumbers, but under normal circumstances it wouldn’t have any in it.  These ones were the most popular wraps.

The lingering question kept me up, 2am who do you love? I wondered til I’m wide awake. Now I’m pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door… I’d open up and you would say “It was enchanting to meet you, all I know is I was enchanted to meet you.”

Ham & Cheese

These were made with rosemary ham and cracker barrel mild cheese.

You with your switching sides and your wildfire lies, and your humiliation. You have pointed my flaws again as if I don’t already see them. I walk with my head down trying to block you out, cause I’ll never impress you. I just wanna feel okay again.

Veggie Salad Wrap # 1

Grand Parisien Salad (Lettuce, Carrots, Dried Cranberries, Feta Cheese, Nuts, Fancy Red Lettuce Stuff) + Tomatoes

Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you.

Well maybe it’s me and my blind optimism to blame.. Or maybe it’s you and your sick need to give love, then take it away.

Veggie Wrap # 2

Salad, cucumbers and caesar dressing

I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right. And how you held me in your arms that September night, the first time you ever saw me cry.. Maybe this is wishful thinking, probably mindless dreaming.. But if we loved again, I swear I’d love you right.. I’d go back in time and change it, but if I can’t. So if the chain is on your door.. I understand. But this is me swallowing my pride standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night.. and I go back to December. It turns out freedom made nothing but missing you, wishing I’d realized what I had when you were mine.. I’d go back to December turn around and make it all right, I’d go back to December and change my own mind, I go back to December all the time.. All the time. (As Sam put it, “You might as well just have said his name Taylor!”)
Well that’s it for this post, as always, thank you so much for reading my lovelies. (More Compendium Vol.3 to come!)
