I am warning you in advance that this post is heavy on the baby pictures, sometimes I just can’t help myself.
Our afternoons in a nutshell:
You thought you had crazy hair when you wake up? Brooke wins that award.
The streak lives on.
My cutest friend Katie read on the blog that I had ran out of my happiness and realized how big of a tragedy this is and restocked my supply complete with a fresh box of the good stuff (remember you can’t even think about going with the store brand of FMW, the Kellogg’s version is the best). So after an afternoon full of naps, FMW and getting ready (actually, that is a lie… the getting ready part never happened and who knows if it will happen today either) we made some pizza.
We had some dough from Whole Foods (I actually like their pizza dough better than TJ’s) that was getting close to its expiration date and so we were forced to make cheesy pizza before it went bad. My tips to making homemade pizza:
1. Heat your pizza stone up for an hour before you actually put the pizza on it. I think this helps make it crispier on the outside.
2. Put cornmeal on the pizza stone.
3. Rub that dough in olive oil and pizza seasoning once it is rolled out.
4. Bake the dough for 4-5 minutes, take it out and then put your toppings on it and then finish cooking it.
We don’t mess around with pizza in this house.
After dinner we drove to go see my Aunt, Uncle and Cousin (I LOVE living so close to them). In the car Brooke made sure to show off her newest talent, blowing bubbles. Billy and I are both very proud because this is very advanced for a newborn. We expect her to be walking and reading any day now.
Brooke is spoiled rotten:) They got her the fanciest swing ever… it has 6 speeds, it plays a million different songs and nature sounds and it is the Rolls-Royce of baby swings.
A huge success. The only problem is that the swing no longer gives me the excuse that I can’t put her down and get ready or do anything productive with my life. Let’s be honest, I will just sit in front of it and stare at her anyways, don’t worry, I won’t be getting anything done.
I don’t really even know what Marionberry is but I do know that it was delicious and I will probably be having another piece for breakfast.
Random: I found this on Pinterest the other day and I loved it:

Any tips that you have to add to making homemade pizza?
What is your run going to be today?
In your opinion, what is the best type of pie?
