Ed. Note: I had originally intended to publish this as part of “7 Quick Takes Friday,” then thought, hey, if I post it on Sunday I can leave the comments open! Is that…cheating, do you think? Of course it is! So sue me!
Better yet, get my husband to sue me. He needs the work.
Speaking of John, he had a birthday last week. (He’s four years younger than his wife! Quelle scandale.) Cate made his cake using a recipe from one of my very favorite cookbooks: a box mix doctored up with white chocolate and frosted with strawberry buttercream.
Yum. We definitely kept the “love” in Lent last Thursday.
Except...have you ever noticed that the bigger your family, the hardest it is to get a decent picture?
Of course you’ve noticed.
People come and go and never seem to stay put...
You get my point, I’m sure.
In the end, I did manage to take a photo I like.
So I’ve been thinking about bringing back my Weigh-in Wednesday Series. Thoughts? For one thing, I’ve got a good twenty pounds of baby weight left and I like the accountability.
When I'm not not painting my toenails, I am trying to make time for read-alouds. I am absolutely on board with Sarah's Read-Aloud Revival, and on that note, I absolutely recommend this book. (I found my copy at our library and am on the second renewal already.) You will come away convicted, trust me! Get it. Read it. Apply its wisdom.
Thank you, Suzanne, for the recommendation.♥
Do you plan to watch the Oscars tonight? Ordinarily I am a huge proponent of the ceremony but will not be in the TV audience tonight. (It’s a Seth MacFarlane thing. I’m just not a big fan of Family Guy or of the movie Ted, for that matter.)
Thanks but no thanks.
That man’s the devil.
(What? It’s true.)
And that’s it! That’s all I got. Leave a comment, please, because you can.
