Exhibit A: burnt croutons. Bummer for my dinner salad huh? This is a lesson to you girlies, do not leave your broiler unattended, not even to change two poopie diapers, because your croutons will burn. Oh well.
I might do another food week again, a girl's got to eat right? And who doesn't love talking about their yummy meals. I promise to try to take better (i.e. more appealing) food pictures for next time.
Sunday was my birthday. Holla! I was glad to celebrate with my family. It was a pretty low key day, which I like, and once Big Tall Hubby and kids remembered it was my birthday, they were pretty nice to me. Thanks all! I kept thinking all day I wanted someone to take a picture of me with all the kids but I couldn't get them all wrangled in at the same time. Oh well, again.
One of my friends put this in my mailbox and I didn't even wait for the M&M's to warm up (it was quite chilly outside) before I tore them open and ate every last one. By myself. No sharing. I dare say, they were my favorite gift! ;) Thanks awesome friend who brought me treats! ;)
I usually interview my kids for their scrapbooks so I thought I'd do the same here. I don't really have any wise, sage advice to share this year, so I'll just talk about myself. Although, I think I am done celebrating birthdays for a while. Now I just feel old. Once you get past 26 or so, you are in the "old" category. I don't think I want to celebrate until I'm like 60 or so, then you are considered wise and quirky or spunky. Those things I like. Old, not so much.
