I have been in a blogging rut lately... and thought I'd share some recent thoughts...
~ I made dinner all four weeknights this week - for me that is Monday - Thursday and lets just say that rarely... if ever happens. So I have already told my husband tomorrow night we are going out and I plan on ordering my favorite salad - even though I think it is overpriced. Its chopped romaine lettuce, gorgonzola cheese, dried cranberries, walnuts, grilled chicken, and a honey balsamic dressing. So far this week I made homemade pizzas, a whole chicken in the crock pot - easiest dinner ever, chicken tacos in the crock pot, and organic Italian chicken sausage with onions and peppers. Nothing fancy... but I am tooting my own horn for cooking... especially tonight when I didn't want to and my husband threw the Chinese take out menu out on the counter.
~ Madison is loving cheer leading. Every time I turn around she is doing a cheer. Tonight I went to pick her up and she was standing there... in the middle of the practice field... tons of people around... just in a sports bra. Let me tell you... I should have gotten my pajama clad self out of the car right then and there and yanked her up. Apparently she needed a reminder this evening not to get undressed at cheer practice. She "says" her shirt got wet... Umm... sure.
~ The week before last Georgetown Cupcakes was offering 40% off. I have always wanted to try them - so I ordered a dozen. They arrived a little bit mangled... and I have yet to hear back from the email I sent them regarding this which is a bit annoying... but even mangled they were some of the best cupcakes I have ever tasted. I think the key lime was my favorite.
~ I am loving the new show The New Normal. I hear some people are all up in arms about it because is portrays a gay couple in a positive way, but I thought it was hysterical and I plan on watching the rest of the season. I am also hooked on Abby & Brittany the show about the now 22 year old conjoined twins - the other week when they graduated from college - I sobbed because I thought it was so wonderful that they lead such a normal and happy life.
