sorry, did i make you drool? didn’t mean to. i got this amazing book from my mother in law for christmas, and just had to try out the technique! you make a big batch of dough (no kneading!), let it rise, store it in the fridge, and cut off bits whenever you want some bread! uh, yeah…my kind of bread making! it can last for weeks in the fridge. how awesome. it was delicious. we downed one of the baguettes in about 5 minutes, no problem. sadie kept saying “bea bea bea”. that means she liked it too.
it’s our tradition to have new years eve with the watsons, i think we’re going on our fifth year now? i wanted to make bruschetta, so i think i’ll whip some of these bad boys up tomorrow for that. yum!
my sister joanna went off to BYU yesterday for school. jo, janae, and i made a quick trip up to ikea on monday for some essentials. i got this ca-ute table and chair set for the playroom, and am in the process of painting it to match the kitchen. (the blue-green color) sadie loves sitting on the chairs and looking at her books. i need to get some plates for her so we can serve up some “food” on the table. today she made me fried eggs, with broccoli. (hmm) she also fed her baby doll some apple. the baby doll wasn’t as responsive as i was, so she gave that up pretty quick.
mostly, we’ve been laying low and enjoying the time together! rory has this week off from work. i keep trying to hint to him to finish some honey do’s, but he’s fixated on his new computer parts. oh well!
i got out the maternity clothes yesterday, can’t believe it’s already time to break those out! my pants still fit, and shirts as well, but i’m in that awkward stage where you just kinda look plump. grr! haha. we’re SOOOOO excited to find out the sex in about 2 weeks. then i can start planning the nursery, etc. although if it’s another girl, i’ll basically leave it alone.
we’ve been looking for toddler beds for the sadester. i can’t quite wrap my head around her not being in a crib. but she’ll be ready for one sooner than i think….at least we want her transitioned before the baby comes…is that too ambitious? mommas who have done this….advice?! please! help!
rory and i went to see sherlock holmes with the watsons last night, we liked it a lot! we’re seeing riverdance on friday with my parents, too! and star trek on imax on saturday! most of these were christmas gifts, btw. we’re going to be all dated out by the end of the week. lol.
anyways, that’s what’s been going down over here. stay tuned soon for that awesome giveaway i hinted at while back! i’ll post it on friday, that way i’ll start the new year with a bang!
