But that doesn't stop us... because much like this McDonald's DP that I gave my four-year-old, we see things as half full around here. And for the record, DP and cinnamon toast cure anything.
So here are a "flu" of my favorites this week.
Texts from Ryan...
I can always count on texts from Ryan to make my late Monday nights a bit sweeter. Also, he's the greatest grocery shopper ever. I need buy fun things like drumsticks. But he never gains weight. Ever. I try to avoid the temptations.
Speaking of temptations...they are also one of my favorites. (Not the band, although they are pretty amazing, too). Cookies. Cookies are my hands down favorite dessert.
We have been doing lots and lots of baking of the cookies. Y'all I have about as much willpower as Barbie has bellybuttons. Oy. Ryan has actually perfected the cookie recipe so much so that his look about like this:
(And yes, I am that bad of a blogger that I google searched cookie).
(The truth is we eat them so fast I don't get a pic.)
(The actual truth is that I just eat the dough).
It was kind of by accident. We were short a stick of butter and he made them anyway. Y'all. It made all the difference. The secret recipe that Phoebe loves so much called for too much butter.
So while I am stuffing my mouth with the best cookies ever, I'm also reading about how to keep it shut...
I sometimes have a hard time keeping my mouth shut. And by sometimes I mean allthefreakingtime. The only three times in history that I can remember being actually speechless:
- Directly after our band won the state competition my senior year in HS and my band director asked me say something. What? (And yes, proud band nerd here.)
- After all 3 kids were born
- In a meeting at work when I was so angry that I literally could not speak.
I'm also reading with two of my dear friends and we have been texting back and forth our goals, our fears, our triumphs! Excited for the next few weeks!
Okay, that was a random assortment of mess. Hope you made it this far because, she happens to be one of my favorites, too!
