Baking?? Who am I??

I don’t know what’s come over me but I think I have a problem, a big problem.

I have been baking.  Seriously.  I’m not kidding.  BAKING!  And some serious baking.

I saw some browning bananas the other day and normally I would wait another day or 2 to see if anyone puts them to use and if not I throw them into the freezer until the next 6 month bug I get to make my go to banana bread.  But no, not this past week, I saw them and thought, Hmmm I can make a banana cream cheese pie or a banana cream pie, I do after all have 2 graham cracker pie shells in the cupboard that have been there for quite some time…

I even looked on line for a banana cream pie/pudding/cheese cake recipe, I even checked if I had the ingredients and I made a list to pick up the missing ingredients I was missing during the next visit to the grocery store. *gasp*

Who am I??

Has my Mr. been slipping some herbal substance that causes increased domestication into my tea?  When it comes to the possibility of him getting more sweets and baking in the home, I wouldn’t put it past him…

Bickering

Do your children bicker?

Good Lord, help me.  Mine do.  And I know, I know all kids do.  Especially when there are three children in very close age proximity. (been there, done that, this is my second ‘batch’ of them)

But sometimes I am absolutely dumbfounded about the petty (to me) things that my children choose to bicker about.

When was the last time you made a new friend?

Don’t you love it when you meet someone that you really click with?  You know, that friend that you meet and you just know that you are going to hit it off with a fondness that will last for many years to come.

 

But don’t you love it even more when your hubby or significant other hits it off with their significant other too?  It’s so fantastic since we all know it isn’t as easy to have the couples hit it off and it sure as hell is much easier to make time for friends when your partners hit it off too, am I right?

But the icing on the cake is when you have children, approximately the same age that also completely hit it off!! Continue reading

Pinterest Success and Failures

Have you ever tried anything from Pinterest, a craft or a recipe?  I’ve tried many different things and half of the things worked out wonderfully and the other half, not so much.

Here’s an example.

For Eden’s 7th birthday we had a winter wonderland P.J birthday party (her birthday is in Dec.)

Some of the ideas worked our quite nicely like these full sized chocolate bars wrapped and decorated to look like snow men.

ImageI love these..it was so sad to see them all ripped open… Continue reading

Is your relationship a priority?

So we are off! I am going away for the weekend with the Mr. *does a happy dance*

Image

We go away 4 times a year, even if it’s just for a night at a hotel or a weekend alone at the cottage.  Last year we went away for 7 days to the cottage.  That was a real treat! I cherish our weekends away.  The time seems to just fly by.  I chose to share my life with Alex.  I’m so glad that I did. Continue reading

And we’re off…

I will be away for the next 2 weeks.

It’s family time.

I will be going to the cottage with the little’s and we will all be away from the inter net.  *gasp*

I will be there by myself with the kids *bigger gasp* Continue reading
