- I am feeling so blessed to have such wonderful friends as I sit here on the couch and stare at the corner of baby gifts that is taking over the living room.
- I am grateful that my days of early morning seminary are behind me. I may have woken up to my sister’s alarm last week, but at least I got to go back to bed at 5 am when she got up. (seminary is basically daily bible study class for the four years of high school)
- I like living with my husband. We’ve spent plenty of time apart since we’ve been married (last year I think the days totaled almost 2 months)… but generally I like it less and less. It is always great to be back together and to fall asleep in the same bed (even if I cacoon myself in my body pillow).
- I’ve been wearing these shoes around the house (I started in New Hampshire because of the vast wood floors at my parens) because by the end of the day my feet hurt. I guess carrying around an extra 25 pounds is taking its toll.
I love the idea of packing these small plates for little summer picnics or having on hand for hors d’oeuvres for last minute dinner guests. For now though, with 15g of protein, premium meats, and bold flavors they’ll be fabulous afternoon snacks 🙂
And while I’m sitting here getting all excited about baby things and reminiscing about the past two weeks – here are a few snapshots from this weekend:
