Musings

Y’all were so so sweet to leave Honey all those comments yesterday.  He’s quite a catch :-)  Someone asked for a picture of his Christmas beard and, unfortunately (?), he broke a long standing tradition when he shaved it early this year for a holiday party.  The really interesting thing is that it was not a costume type event…
 
Have you seen the train wreck that is Dance Moms?  As much as I don’t want to watch it, on the rare occasion I come across it while flipping channels I just can’t seem to turn it off.  Okay, who am I kidding?  I do sometimes every so often seek it out :-)

I am thankful for every.single.minute that I have with this little one at home.  He fills my days with so much joy, laughter and silliness.

Lest you think the baby is always tromping around in darling outfits, I thought I should set things straight and share how he looks most days.  I never had trouble dolling the PCP up in smocks and appliques, but this little one has a mind of his own and an (unfortunate) penchant for jerseys and strange socks.

So excited to have found this blog dedicated to reviewing Trader Joe’s wine – Trader Joe’s Wine Compendium.  Although it doesn’t seem to have been updated in a good long while.

And speaking of wine, this is my new favorite red.  It’s $12 at my Publix but less that $8 at my local wine store.  Thanks blonde AW for making our introduction…Apothic Red: The brambly spice of Zinfandel, dark fruit flavors of Syrah, the bold notes of Cabernet Sauvignon and the smooth elegance of Merlot unite to create this captivating red blend.  Apothic Red reveals intense fruit aromas and flavors of rhubarb and black cherry, complemented by hints of mocha, chocolate, brown spice and vanilla. The plush, velvety mouthfeel and the smooth finish round out this intriguing, full-bodied red blend.

I’ve also been loving the What Kate Wore blog.  You know, because it satiates my obsession with all things princess and fashionable.

And while I’m on the subject of princesses, take a gander at my half-baby.  I’m just a little obsessed with sweet CeeCee and am counting down the minutes till I can get my hands on her again.  And don’t you just adore the hat??!!  Sister found it on etsy.

The littles helped me make these pancake bites earlier in the week.  We followed the instructions in the actual blog post, not in the Pinterest write up and found that it only made six little muffins.  Aside from that snafu, we used what we had on hand (blueberries, bananas & nuts, strawberries and chocolate chips) and the littles adored them. 
We have a fun filled weekend of basketball, birthday parties and Falcons cheering ahead.  And the chore of finishing the cleaning and organizing of  this wretched closet.  Yes, I realize that the fact that I wrote “finishing” is surprising because from the looks of it you thought I hadn’t even started.  This is part of my "evaluate" resolution…

Happy three day weekend y’all!

I have to admit that I am a Dance Moms fan too Amanda. This season has been a bit over the top, too scripted. I wish that they would just dance and leave the made up drama behind. I loved your hub's post yesterday as well. Tech Men are quite a catch!!

My daughters old dance studio---had a child on Dance moms. It is completely scripted. This child was never part of the dance studio on the show. Lots of good stuff in this post!!! Now is the closet that holds your stash?

Dixie Delights said...

Donna White said...
