Daily Life: French Dipping It

22 Feb

Last night was AMAZING. It was exactly what I needed, when B got home I took a quick nap, woke up to him cooking dinner, finished the laundry (hoorayy!!), and crocheted while watching The Bachelor. I love crocheting when I am watching a movie or TV. I fly right through it without even knowing! So my latest project is s close to be done 😛

Then at 1:25 a.m. my cute little love bug decided that she was done sleeping and it was time to wake up and play!! So I gave her another bottle, hushed her back to sleep, and an hour later jumped in bed and passed out instantly! This morning I am still laying in bed while I am typing this! Although I am not really feeling like I missed a lot of sleep, I just feel really lazy. E hasn’t made a sound so I am assuming she’s making up for that lovely hour.

Today is run errands day! Aka accomplish something day! E gets to go over to Nana’s house and spend the day with her and Dodo!! She’ll be smiling ear to ear when I drop her off and when I pick her up. There is no doubt in my mind that she LOVES Nana’s house.

That will give me and my mom most of the day to run our errands and spend some quality time before I start watching the girls and become MIA. I’m excited about spending the day with her. It’s seems like everything I am worried about or anything that seems unclear just opens up and somehow she puts sense back into my life. I’m not sure if that makes sense to anyone else but me.. but it does!

Hmmm! While I am thinking about it I should probably try a new crockpot recipe!! Sounds like a plan to me 🙂 Stay tuned for a crockpot recipe I stole from one of the blogs I follow on a daily basis – French Dip sandwiches by http://journalofamom.wordpress.com/

Hope everyone else has a great day,

Love Always,


Deceptively Accomplished

20 Jan

Wow. I can’t believe I actually got it all done! Today was my grocery store run and start of deceptively delicious trial and let me just say I am exhausted!! I spent less than I thought I was going to (Thank Goodness!) and it took me about 2-3 hours to get everything ready to try out these new meals! If this becomes a habit I think it’ll take me about an hour like Jessica says, but since I am new to everything it took a little longer, and I had a little “help” to keep me distracted 🙂

Mommy’s little helper

I hid the puree’s in the back bottom shelf so B wouldn’t see them 🙂

Our seriously stocked refrigerator!

And super stocked cabinet!!

I am really tempted to see if we can live off all this food and NOT have to go to the grocery store for four weeks (except for milk I can only get away with two weeks on that one). That would be AWESOME!!!

Tonight I am making chicken cacchetori, which is not on the deceptively delicious list and I won’t be deceiving anyone. It’s just really easy to make and after a long day of cutting, steaming, baking, and blending, easy sounds fantastic.

I also plan to do Absolutely Nothing else except for crocheting (and playing with E) if I can get away with it. T’s blanket is getting pretty far! I am halfway through the fourth skane and originally didn’t think I would make it to the fifth by the end of the month! Looks like I will be making it after all 😉

Getting excited about the bottom part of the blanket. That’s where the fun is going to come in 🙂

Love Always,
