Sorry team but this post may be a little shorter than my normal eight page ramble. I was an incredibly good wife and went and cheered on B-mister at his baseballs games. We got home at 10:47 and I am just now writing my post (I am usually in my 3rd cycle of REM by now and I WILL be waking up for early morning pump……last one before it is cancelled at my gym).
I wanted to start things off by making you drool. A student brought in this cupcake from her sister’s bakery. This would be an ice cream cake cupcake. The icing tasted just like mint chocolate chip ice cream but it wasn’t. It took me off guard but I ended up licking the crumbs off of my desk (I desperately wish I was kidding, and I know you are all picturing me do it as we speak), so I guess it was a winner. I asked my student why she didn’t bring this to me at the begining of the year because it would have guaranteed her an automatic A if she had.
After a faculty party (those Utah valley teachers sure know how to have a good time) we went over to the parentals because these kids really can’t live without me. Seriously, they can’t. Don’t even question it.
Steak potatoes, green beans and rolls. If you remember from this post, my dad is on his journey to a healthier lifestyle, he has lost 19 lbs now. This is quite a common dinner (they switch up between chicken and salads too) for them these days and I am not complaining (He skips the rolls and potatoes, my mom makes those especially for her carb loving daughters).
And for dessert…..French Vanilla hot chocolate made with milk. Billy’s games were FREEZING and I needed something HOT to keep me from sneaking into the snack shack and sitting by the heater and stealing all of their Skittles during the game.
Billy helped my sister upload books for her Nook. She reads at least 2 books a week and I posted this picture for your opinion on Nooking…..(PS I hate that Barne’s and Noble called their eReader a nook….just sounds iffy to me).
Do you use a kindle/nook/iPad to read? Do you think you will? What is your favorite genre of reading? What are you reading right now?
-I LOVE reading off of the iPad, except when I am outside it is a little harder to read but still doable. Remember, I now have three months of nothingness….book recommendations are welcomed with open arms.
Who cooked more in your home growing up….your mom or your dad? What about now?
-Mom cooks and dad makes a killer grilled cheese, stack of pancakes and knows his way around the BBQ. Billy is a WAY better cook (I am a better baker) but he just got me some new kitchen tools so that I can start my very own culinary arts school in my kitchen:) Expect a lot of good recipes people!
