First: A big, huge, grand, enormous, THANKS to Jen for her unbelievably sweet mention of my small potatoes blog in her Quick Takes today. I'm not going to lie, I am still smiling over it-- I think the girls are wondering if aliens came and abducted their real mother replacing her with a fake, happy, mother: I kid, I kid.
Second: I am kind of jumping out of my skin with excitement over an upcoming kidless day trip to Milwaukee to see my brother and sister-in-law: they are expecting in a month and will be going up to attend her baby shower. I am very proud of keeping up a teeny tiny bit with sewing and making said sister-in-law one of my homemade nursing covers. Nothing says "Congratulations on your new baby!" like an over-sized bib to "Cover those things up!"
Third: Plus I get to pick up my little sister on the way who just got a job outside of Chi-town and so now lives a mere 2 hours away from me. Best ever.

Fourth: I am very lucky to have a husband who is in school and so works from home almost every single day and will come upstairs to save me from impending insanity when need be. Therefore I feel a leeedle bit guilty for leaving him with the
|trusty, always used couples picture! OMG!|
Fifth: I made these cookies yesterday, cutting the recipe in half and only using butter and dark brown sugar instead of regular. They were the very best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. In my life. Promise. Make them. Now.
|not my picture, but it sure makes you want to make some doesn't it? doesn't it?|
Sixth: We have taken to AWESOME fort making here during these rainy days. This is the view from my perch as I type.
|Yeah, I am pretty good.|
Go see Jen for more!
