So far... and something fun!

So far this week...

I may have cheated a bit on my "modified bed rest" to make some de-E-licious oatmeal cookies, where I ate way too many right out of the oven.  Am I the only one who can't stop after 4, 5...maybe 6 freshly baked cookies?? (alright fine! fine! 7!)

 E apparently channeled her innner zoolander.

 There's been many moments of this face looking at me and me thinking "Is it seriously just 9 am and I have already exhausted all my resources?  Seriously?!"

 There's been many hours of playing "pasta play-dough .  O, you don't know that game??  Well you cut and roll play-dough in all sorts of different pasta shapes, not gonna lie, I am pretty professional at making orichiette by now.

Ok-and I am really excited about this one.  I kind of learned how to crochet!  Thanks to the help of two darling friends and many MANY youtube videos, I have learned how to make a granny square!  

 "Mom quit bragging about your granny squares and focus on me"

Ok ok one last look.  Ahhh, the therapeutic sigh of accomplishing something.  I am proud.  So so proud since I almost gave up more times than I can count...

 "Moooom!  Seriously!"

 Okay okay, that's enough about me.  I have a little one who wants to play another round of pasta play-dough.  Ahh the joys of motherhood:)....but seriously, oh the many, many joys.  I'm being serious! :)

O, and I know you are dying for that oatmeal cookie recipe, so go ahead and head on over here to get it!

And here's for something fun!  My darling cousin has a super cute fam blog and she is having a giveaway!  Make sure to head on over by clicking HERE and comment on her post in order to be entered into the giveaway.  Yay for giveaways!...alright, and a little crack of the knuckles and I am off to create with some playdough.

  3. So proud of you! I still have to figure out how to make a granny square... seriously. I love reading your blog. :) You're too funny.

  4. I love this post! Makes me miss you two so bad! And Eleni looks so stinking cute with her hair in a fountain! (PS. You gotta teach me how to make those granny squares--and those cookies--when you come out ;)

  5. I'm so glad you learned to crochet. I can attest to its sanity saving qualities during times when one needs patience. Plus, the act of creating something fills up the soul. I love the colors you picked for your granny squares, too! I'm so happy that things are on an even keel for you; I think of you often.
