This week’s quick takes are going to be quick. Imagine that.
My dear friend and Maggie’s godmother Elizabeth visited this week! We had a lot of fun drinking mango margaritas and wine, taking our kids to the Children’s Museum, and watching awesome TV shows like Say Yes to the Dress and Parks and Rec. Be jealous.
It was sweet. And Maggie told us she “needed some wine”. Am I winning or what?
I have a cd of ACDC that I love to listen to in the car. Apparently Maggie likes it too.
As we were driving to playdate this morning, Back in Black came on. Maggie said, “Mommy, Maggie likes this song.”
Damn straight. My Mother of the Year award can be mailed any time now.
We had a very successful library trip this week, for both Maggie and myself.
Maggie found a stash of Dr. Seuss books, including The Lorax, If I Ran the Zoo, To Think It Happened on Mulberry Street, and a non-Seuss called Isabella’s Garden.
Mommy found two Agatha Christie books (The Secret Adversary and Poirot Investigates), Dorothy Day’s biography of St. Therese, and Simplicty Parenting.
Libraries are awesome.
I am going to my very first 31 party tomorrow. I’m excited because I have been noticing these cute bags for a while now.
If you have any of them, what kind and what do you think of it? I’m in the market for a mid-size cooler type bag, and a tote I can use for the farmer’s market.
Our home is offering many prayers for the people of Boston and West, Texas after the tragedies. Seriously America, what a crappy week.
I just have to say, and I am getting zero compensation or anything for saying this, that the Pioneer Woman Cooks Food From My Frontier cookbook is a-w-e-s-o-m-e. I have made about 15 recipes from the book and have yet to be disappointed with even one.
