i found a recipe for the brown sugar brie appetizer here. whee!
so guess what we'll be having tonight, along with a nice big salad with grilled chicken? mmmmm. in fact, i got all domestic and made a grocery list, clipped coupons, and planned out dinners for the rest of the week. i was all proud of myself and e-mailed the hub to tell him that he actually DOES have a real wife after all. heh.
and while he was, in fact, proud of my efforts, he reminded me that i didn't need to plan for one of the nights this week, since he's taking me out for birthday princess dinner. amazingly, i'd actually forgotten about it! hahahahaha! further proof that i truly am getting old and crotchety.
i went a little camera-crazy with the bean this weekend. look:
inspecting those weird things that are stuck on her feet.
throwing me a bone, and showing me those teeth.
striking her best supermodel pose.
torturing poor mollydog.
practicing that standing thing.
lastly, the teen called yesterday when school let out.
"mom, can i come by to pick something up?"
"sure, of course, we'll be happy to see you." (she's with her dad this week)
"oh, cool! tomorrow is nick jonas' birthday and i left my "i [heart] nick" top in my closet. i need to have it so i can wear it all day tomorrow."
oy. and in the background, i hear a couple of guys shouting out "oh my god, are you SERIOUS??" "you're such a freak!" "can somebody say obsession?" and she mumbles "hold on, mom" and shouts out "shut UP! i love him. he needs to know that i'm thinking about him on his birthday."
holy mother of cheese, she cracks me up.
