Hey hey hey! It's my rest day!
I think I might have taken the rest day tooo literal today! I had great intentions of getting up and going for a nice, brisk walk with Brian, but he had other ideas..... resting to him does not include walking. So we loaded up in the jeep and took off for a drive. The tops were out and it was a good time, we always have so much fun together, even when we aren't doing anything in particular.
I did manage to get a LOT of cooking done this morning! Homemade spaghetti sauce is in the crock pot. I made a small batch for me (no meat) and then the big batch for the fam. Everyone is coming over for dinner tonight for a little celebration!
I made brownies - can't wait to eat them, from my new cookbook from one of my favorite blogs - Peas and Thank You! Then look and smell delicious. Hope 6:00 gets here quickly!
I added dairy-free chocolate and butterscotch chips to the top!
I also made, brown rice and quinoa in the rice cooker, soup and lentil stew. I should be set for the week. Brian is looking for a good meatball recipe, if anyone has one, please pass it along!
I got new kicks this week. Not sure I'm loving the purple laces, but it is fun for a while. I am so hard on shoes and just got my last pair about a week before the tornado hit, but I have used them like crazy...
Brian got me an early anniversary gift. A new camera!!!! My old one was perfectly fine, but it was OLD! It was only 8 pixels and had about a 4x zoom. I was eyeing the new ones and I think I might have started drooling a bit :) So, now I have a new one. I've been playing around with it and not really sure how to use all the features, but it is fun! This one has 14 pixels and a 10x zoom and the ability to load straight to facebook and you tube. Not sure I will use that feature, but fun none-the-less.
Since this is such a random post, check out this photo of my sweet babycakes. I was the official "make Madelyn smile person" for her 2 year old and family photos!!
Didn't do my job for this picture huh? Oh well, I know the other ones will turn out GREAT!
I think I've rambled on long enough and the kids are getting here for dinner now, so I'm off to spend time with the fam!
