Have you heard Christmas music yet? I used to be one of those people who put Christmas music on the day after Halloween. This year it hasn’t even crossed my mind. I’m more of a “day after Thanksgiving” type now. I keep seeing references to Christmas list-making. Amazon sent me its holiday guide in the mail (which is great entertainment for Mazen), and we even SAW SANTA last weekend at Jack Fest! I know it’s November, but I’m not ready!
Here’s some of our weekly news…
Recipe Collaboration with Plenty
Last week Della from Plenty Cville came over for a cook day! We’re going to be collaborating on some recipes for KERF coming soon. Della has amazing creativity, kitchen skills, and recipes but no desire to sit down at a computer. I have a camera, a solid documentation process, and a platform. Together we’re two halves that make a whole dream team! I can’t wait to share more of our recipe collaboration with you.
This is what I ate for lunch all week:
If The Shoe Fits
I FINALLY got new running shoes! My old Brooks Ghost 10s had a 4-inch rip in the side, and I had been wearing them for a MONTH! That’s how long it took me to get over to Ragged Mountain Running Store and get fitted for some new ones. After watching me jog and walk back and forth a few times, the woman who helped me said the Brooks Ghosts were great for my feet, so I came out with Ghost 12s. I would have preferred shoes with a bit more style to them, but we agreed that comfort and fit >>> style.
Breakfast Used To Be My Favorite Meal Of The Day
Now I am literally forgetting to eat and shoving something in as I dash out the door! It’s too hard for me to prepare anything nice now that Birch is mobile so I have been waiting until our sitter arrives, grabbing something super fast, and running out the door. (Manicure has since been removed – lol!)
Luckily smoothies are great for on the fly. This was Daily Harvest Tart Cherry smoothie with granola (in a blue jar!)
Books in bed <3 I love how Birch is sitting. He’s also just starting to take a few steps!
He also has two top teeth! It’s made for quite the week combined with daylight saving time. We’ve been up very, very early! 🙁
Anyone else use their selfie cam to see if baby’s eyes are open?!
Oodles of Noodles
We had Plenty peanut noodles for dinner heated as a stir fry. So delish this way! Recipe to come soon!!
We have a floor!!! PS. Where’s Waldo?!
