You know how much I love a list!
1. My brother took his mixer back. Now I am back to mixing Sunbeam style. It is a perfectly good mixer. It just doesn't have a flour power rating. I miss that.
2. My dessert from last week, Warm Winter Lemon Cake, was simply amazing. Very easy to make. Very easy to eat.
3. I will be lucky to get in a new main course this week with Thanksgiving. Maybe I will try a recipe from another blog on Friday or Saturday. It is for BBQ Turkey Quesadillas.
4. Molly has started pulling up. Great, except with pulling up comes falling down! Today she fell from standing in the kitchen and bumped her head and now she has a bruise on her forehead. It is very sad.
5. Isabelle is still operating in a fog of birthday happiness. Everyday she plays with every single toy and book that she got at her party. My house has been a mess for 10 days straight.
6. Jason's birthday is in one week. He is older than me, so this is a fun time of year for me. I get to call him old. In six months, on my birthday, it all ends. Also, I have no idea what to get him. Men are too hard to shop for.
7. I want to buy every toy I see for Isabelle and Molly. I must say I never truly understood the spoiling your kids thing until having kids. It is not that Isabelle and Molly want the toys and beg and plead for them until I give in, I just want to buy them everything. I especially want to buy the classic fisher price toys and a pink kitchen for Isabelle.
8. This morning Isabelle was looking for Jay. She was yelling out the window, "Jay?" It was pretty funny considering that is what I did yesterday when trying to get Jason's attention while he was putting up Christmas lights.
9. Speaking of Christmas lights, here is a glimpse into our personalities. We have multicolored lights on the house. We needed more. I bought more at Target. The new lights included purple, which the old lights did not have, therefore they are going back so that we can get the lights like we already have. We also had to change the bulbs out of our existing lights so that two red bulbs would not be next to each other on the house. Meanwhile, at the entrance to our neighborhood is the house with rope lights, regular lights, blinking lights, icicle lights and yard inflatables. The blinks don't go together, the rope lights are in no pattern or regular shape, and the yard inflatables are past their prime. It is a mess. And we are worried about purple lights. On two strands of lights. That were going to outline the garage, not go on the house.
10. Isabelle doesn't like my kisses. Seriously, she wipes them off. Only mine, not Jason's, not Aunt Buh-Buh's or Scott's, not Cait's or Josh's, just mine. And she thinks it is funny. I do not. I thought the problem was lip stick or lip gloss or lip balm, but nope, just me. I hope she gets over this very soon.
