Friday Random Thoughts...

 

 
1.  In the last 18 hours we got a quick visit with my brother.  He swooped in last night and seemed satisfied with my homemade pizza (w/o cheese - because that is how he rolls).  He spent the morning watching Henry while Charley was at preschool and I ran out with a girlfriend to be moral support for her new house inspection.  Uncle Greg, who is a bachelor and hasn't probably ever changed a diaper - kept Henry occupied and even changed a poopy diaper!  Way to go Uncle Greg!  Thanks for fitting us in!


2.  I am attempting my first batch of whole wheat sandwich bread.  If it goes well I might be changing up our family's grocery list - it might not include bread!

3.  I HAVE NOT had one of those cupcakes yet!  Too busy today - and not cravin' it!  So Grandma Charlie - there will be one here waiting for you!


4.  I have several shows saved up on Tivo from the week and I can't wait to catch up this weekend...is it sad that I am glad we don't have a big social life so that weekends can actually be relaxing ends to our week.

5.  As winter slowly starts fading...the sun begins to shine more often.  Around 2:06pm every afternoon I desire the life of a cat.  I want to find a patch that has been blessed with the warmth of the sun, and I want to curl up and nap right there.

6.  I have found several friends who I can talk on the phone with for long stretches of time, going from one topic to the next.  It makes me think back to the days when my mom would pace our kitchen with the LLOOOOOOOOOONG curly cord that attached the phone to the wall.  I appreciate cordless phones.

7.  I am the mom of two boys...and this is what I deal with each day - all. day. long.

8.  I took a chance and played around with the HTML code and got rid of the border that automatically shows up on Blogspot headers.  I also became a premium member of this photo editing website!  LOVE IT!  And from this site I created, all by myself, the new header at the top of my blog!

9.  My mom and dad survived their week in the Dominican Republic with SEVERAL friends.  Sunday my in-laws head to Hawaii for a week!  Someday I hope that Ed and I can travel together like our two sets of parents.

10.  What should I make for dinner tonight...hmmm...what are you having?

Don't ya just love it when you step on one of those army guys or legos! Me and Justin want to travel like that when we get older too! So much fun! Hope y'all have a great weekend! Oh, we're having lasagna! I guess I need to get off the computer and start cooking! Ha!

Hattie said...

Okay I totally just changed my mind on that lasagna! We're out of wine! We're having chili now! :)

Those cupcakes look so good.

I love picnik. I use it to death, though I just use the free version.

Nic said...

I'm in LOVE with Picnik. I have been using it for several years now.

Thanks...I could sure use a chocolate cup cake right about now =)

Krista said...

um.... how does a girl get one of those cupcakes?? They look excellent. Thanks for stopping by my blog & for taking the time to comment. LOVE the title of yours by the way. I feel like I've used the phrase "for the love of naps" a time or 17 in the last few months.

My first visit to your blog and my first comment...

1. That cupcake looks insanely good!!

2. A cheese-less pizza?!?! GASP!!!!

3. I just heard about picnik and am going to try it this weekend.

4. We had barbecued pork tenderloin, steamed veggies and wild rice for supper. It sounds good but was just so-so.

Chrystal said...

I love making my own bread. I know 100% what is in it. Great job on the blog header.

Melissa said...

That cupcake looks amazing! They wouldn't have lasted two days at my house! And you did a great job with your header. What an adorable picture! Love your blog title too.

Jamie @ Six Bricks High said...

The blog header looks great! Way to go!

I want to know how the bread turned out.

Shell said...

Back to tell you that you have an award over on my blog.

Stepping On Cheerios said...

The toys....omg the toys there and here and everywhere, all the time! I secretly wish I could toss them all away!

Great header!

One Take On Life - Heather said...

To answer number 4, no not bad at all, isn't it just a stage in your life right now. At least for us with no family around, we don't have a big social life either.
#9 - Oh how I wish I could go back to Hawaii - someday. You don't need to wait till the kids are grown though, you could plan a mini trip if that is better and get away. I know easier said than done. We have talked about doing that.
#10 Dinner - breakfast for dinner - either pancakes or waffles.

Kat @ www.TodaysCliche.com said...

Love your site! I'm sooo happy I came across you! I think we were both given an award together... and I'm sooo glad I landed on you. I'm a follower now.

Love the name "Henry"! I soo wanted it for one of my (3) boys... Hugs, Kat

Crazed Mama said...

The changes look great! Sorry I didn't get by yesterday...cupcake looks yummy

Lisa said...

Uncles are great, especially the bachelor ones that haven't grown up completely yet and still think like a kid:) I have 3 brothers lol!

Those cupcakes are making my stomach grumble...

I have 3 boys and trust me when I tell you, the toys will be here to stay for a long time lol:)

You have a great blog and I'm following you now. Shell sent me over and I can see why!

CJ Sime said...

I love number 5. Divine.

The Gardiner Family said...

I will never understand how you went so long without eating one of those cupcakes.

Danifred said...

The photo of the toys on the carpet looks IDENTICAL to our house, right down to the carpet! It's the mess that never ends!

Thanks for playing again this week :)

HereWeGoAJen said...

I've got bread in the oven right now! We still aren't using it for everyday though, it's too delicious and we keep eating it as treats.

Tasha Lehman said...

I can completely relate to the picture of the toys all over! We even have some of those same ones! LOL

Fishsticks and Fireflies said...

Great job with the header! And I can't wait to hear how the bread turns out . . . I have perfected my wheat pizza crust, and am thinking I need to move on to bread.

Carolee / Home4ever said...

Love the header and we're having chili, too!

I've heard of tornado hunters, but I'm wondering if your parents are earthquake/tsunami hunters?!

Absolutely LOVE Picnik!!

OMIGosh! First diaper and it's a POOPY one? LOL That is too funny. Hopefully, the pizza will bring him back (that or the cupcakes :)

Thanks for joining in this week!!
