Something happened yesterday that brought my sister and I even closer. They had watermelon Saturday night with their dinner and she saved me some even though she had to guard it from other everyone else trying to eat it and not eating it herself either.
I have come to the conclusion that watermelon is my current biggest pregnancy craving. My sister is much better than I am at keeping her eyes open when she smiles.
I repaid her by making Snickerdoodles, okay let’s be honest I made them for my own selfish reasons. These babies got a 10 out of 10 by all of the testers. Make them. Recipe HERE.
My sister cooked up some incredible chicken enchiladas with corn tortillas for dinner and I made my own random version of Spanish Rice by throwing in corn, tomatoes and salsa into some rice. Happy Seis de Mayo to us.
We must have had too much sugar because we felt the need to start doing random things after dinner all of those snickerdoodles.
Billy is officially the strongest person in the house yesterday. I did not participate in the arm wrestling due to the fact that my 60 year old mother beat me a few months ago. I am almost positive my little nephew could beat me too.
Billy had never tried the challenge before (1 tablespoon of cinnamon in 60 seconds) and I have never (no exaggeration, we took a video of it) laughed so hard in my life. I cannot show you the video of it because the cinnamon challenge made Billy lose his dinner over the deck. Can you see all the cinnamon in the air?
I made sure to ask him if it was okay if I used this photo and he said YES…he is proud of himself for trying his hardest with the challenge and he even wanted me to post the video but I just couldn’t expose you to it but he made sure to send it to all of his family.
******EDITED TO ADD!!! Turns out that the cinnamon challenge can actually be quite dangerous. We had absolutely no idea of this and so please do not try this challenge. Instead see how many swedish fish you can eat in a minute!
After the cinnamon mess we started talking about how scary the movie Jumanji was. Did you see that movie? I think it is my least favorite movie ever. We decided to watch all of the scariest parts of the movie last night and now I will be having dreams of monkeys, lions, mosquitos and killer flowers.
Later on my mom whipped out these bad boys. Carrot cake cupcakes from Costco….this will be my after lunch dessert today.
Not sure whether or not to run today because my quads/calves are sore from the hills on Saturday….the weird thing is that running makes them feel less sore even though you would think the opposite….well, I guess that makes up my mind about today, time to get my run on!
Ever tried the cinnamon challenge? Ever seen anyone try the cinnamon challenge? Any other food challenges we should try?
What is the scariest movie you have ever seen? Did you see Jumanji? Did it freak you out too?
Anyone else have sore legs today? What is your treatment for sore leg muscles?
What would you rank carrot cake as on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?
