see my days really are full...takes me till thursday to get wednesdays post out!:)
where is this week going?
anybody else wondering that?
with soccer winding down and post season parties in the works, janey preparing photos for "star student" this week and both girls walking in the homecoming parade on friday each day has some major task that needs to be completed. days like that always make the week fly for me.
started my morning with this old favorite song and this new favorite.
i know that new one is anything but new but i am usually several months behind the popular music scene.:) i love starting the day with a good song.
speaking of good songs, my hip is finally feeling better and i am back to working out.
which means early, early alarms ringing and very little extra time to blog but i am trying to find that balance again. i miss and need it too much to give it up.
after our normal panera and library wednesday aubrey and i came home and decided to bake.
this sudden desire was fueled completely by my need for chocolate in a house that had none.
i made meg's cookies and aubrey made pink ones.
in daddy's steamer with his garlic press and ravioli mold.
the added sprinkles at the end were the finishing touch.
i went the easy route this time and pressed mine into a big sheet pan.
talk about simple.
i have never done that before...why?
it was tons quicker and kept me from eating way too much dough!
(does that gross you out? i know it is dreadful and i don't let the girls do it...but yummmmm!)
it was a great early dismissal surprise for the girls.
and funny story...aubrey and i were lost in our baking this afternoon, noticed we had 15 minutes to get to school for pick-up. i scooped her up and her shoes but forgot mine!
noticed as soon as i parked that i was still in my socks! my choices were to walk up to get the girls in my socks or janey's very yellow neon emergency flip flops (cause i'm not the only one in the family who has forgotten their shoes before). i was laughing so hard at myself as i was texting my friend there in line. i knew as soon as i saw riley the first thing she was going to say was..."why are you wearing THOSE shoes??!!" sure enough that is exactly what she said.
at least my hair wasn't in curlers or something completely dreadful like that!!:)
we had a little impromptu play date after school today since it was early release.
i just love our friends.
such sweet, sweet girls.
they played and i cleaned up the tornado struck kitchen that only a day involving baking, no shoes and a play date right after school can bring.
i think i might be a tad bit obsessed.
what do you think?
do you ever do that?
get a topic in your mind you want to research then get waaay to many books on the subject?
there are not enough hours in the day for me to get through these babies.
but i still promise to share everything i learn!:)
we have tried a few new smoothies this week.
i substituted yogurt where ever it said sherbet cause i couldn't quite justify sherbet for breakfast.
know what i mean?:)
they were yummy.
so how was your wednesday?
hope it was a happy one.
...happiest moment of the day so far...
forgetting my shoes and having a good laugh about it
have a happy day,
1. warm cookies
4. good music
