pretty print (just $15) from little things studio
+ the other day at the park, benji saw two ladies walking on the trail and said, we're much too busy to walk. we've got to get to that playground! i love three year olds and their go-get-em / let's live it up attitudes. we played red light, green light for forty minutes last night before stories.
+ am working like a busy bee at my real job; designing. it's wedding season and i couldn't be more excited about the invitations brewing.
+ if i'm not working in my studio i could be caught eating Phish Food and reading the Hunger Games.
am on the last chapter and am torn on whether or not i should finish it tonight. of course i will, but i just hate finishing up a good book! luckily two more await.
+ thank you for your insightful thoughts on bravery from my last post. i needed your advice. i love when this place becomes a forum of good, helpful exchanges.
+ i've loved hanging out with our families lately. i feel so thankful for their friendships (and to live nearby!). i'm a sentimental fool these days and can't imagine life without them.
+ we're planning a pizza night with friends; what are your favorite pizza toppings? am thinking the pioneer woman's basil-tomato pizza from the back of her love story book will be excellent. (seriously, that was such a quick wholesome romantic wonderful read.. i highly recommend it. again.)
+ for some odd reason i rarely make pancakes from scratch but have decided to start. (how's that for a resolution?!) pancakes are listed among dan's favorite food groups. (my go-to are the baked puffy german pancakes, but alas, dan loves the original round cakelets.) so i read through a few recipes and was blown away at the idea of adding the egg yolks and whipping them in with the flour and milk, etc., but whipping the egg whites separately and then folding them in at the very end. fluffy, addicting, incredible pancakes. where have i been? then add blueberries, ala curious george makes pancakes, and voila, i'm falling in love with pancakes again.
+ pinterest is still holding my interest. no matter what my mood.
+ our cloud dough is still working wonders; i guess it may last forever. it's the best i-have-to-sweep-anyway project to bust out before bath time.
+ any big family traditions for st. patty's day? am racking my brain for something simple and fun. all i know is we are for sure making mint brownies.
+ my favorite thing about march thus far is our standing weekly lunch date with dan. it's the perfect answer for late night worker bees like us. we dress up to match daddy's attire, head out and walk the busy sidewalks as a family and decide last minute where to eat. and play catch up over ketchup. (last week it was havarti and turkey.) it makes me super happy.
+ one thing to get off my chest: many of you wrote me the nicest emails when i was having my mini blogging crisis at the beginning of the year (so glad that's over). i've been meaning to respond and still haven't been able to find the time (or the right words). enter guilty feeling here. please know i'm so grateful for every single one of you and your added efforts to write me a line and cheer me on (and read and support my blog). seriously, i save those emails for rainy days. thank you.
+ will be posting lightly for awhile. i'll be back on the saddle soon. i'm just tying up some loose ends. and reading books in bed (with Tums by my side) like a crazy (pregnant) person.
