Ok, sorry, little sensitive. I'm over it now. Ayden's got a fresh diaper and is playing on the floor next to me. Carter (neighbor's baby that I babysit a few days a week, he's 2 months younger than Ayden) has a fresh clean diaper and has just gone down for a nap. I should have enough time to do a little catching up.
Just because I haven't blogged since...March 10 (yes that was my first weekend update (bad SNL reference)), doesn't mean that I will ditch out on what I have been doing. I have been trying to think of how I will play catch up. Should I do the first missed week and the current week? And do 2 updates per week, or should I just do them in separate posts until I am caught up??? Then I thought...IT'S A BLOG, STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND JUST TYPE. I can't help that I plan EVERYTHING!!!
So...here we go, let's see how much I can get done before a baby needs me. (((I guess not much...Ayden is upset over something) brb, ok he's good now
The crafty project I started this week, I didn't finish. I am making a recipe binder. For years, I have been trying to think of the perfect way to keep my recipes that was both cute and functional. Right now I have the printouts and handwritten papers curled up in a vase that sits on top of my fridge. When it's time to need one of those recipes, I just pick through until I find it. So I found a cute idea that is quick and easy (all 3 things I like) :) I started it this week, but did not get a chance to finish it. This was the week that I started on stuff for the bridal shower that I co-hosted. This is also the week that I started watching Carter. So...coming soon, will be the finished project of my recipe binder
The new recipe I tried was Strawberry Cream Cheese filled Crepes.
(ok...time for some one-handed typing. Mr Ayden decided he didn't want to play on the floor anymore. He wanted to see what mom is doing).
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
- 4 cups sliced strawberries
Something I learned as a new parent that week was not to plan too much. Top priorities are; take care of Ayden, take care of me, then take care of the house. Crafts, blogs, pintrest, etc. can wait. So what I do now is write on my calendar things that need to get done on a specific day, then I take a blank sheet of paper and write down the other things that don't have a deadline. I don't feel bad if I don't get that list completed in one day, that's not the intent.
Nothing really exciting. Gonna go play with the baby, he is too energetic for one hand,
Have a great day!
