Couple Things…

Here’s a photo recap of our week:

Cinco de Mayo continued with jazzed up leftovers (this is black beans cooked with cilantro topped with crumbled queso fresco).

Z has been using this little Mexican towel for snack time picnics ever since I got it out for Cinco de Mayo.

Here is that towel again while we were snack picnicking in the living room (yes, Z is trying to eat her pear with her toes).

We also shopped at Trader Joe’s for fancy cheese.

Our Z is obsessed with this giant yellow tulip in our front yard, she *smells* it every time we get home from somewhere before we go inside.

It was warm enough for shorts early in the week!

Hope you have a great weekend and Mother’s Day! Here are some fun links:

Met Ball recap…and gallery of dresses.  I loved SJP’s interpretation of the punk theme, who doesn’t love a fax-hawk at a formal event?

And the cartoon version!

Here’s an interesting article if you ever wanted to know why some people remember dreams and some don’t (I always seem to remember snip-its of dreams)…

Once you make your own butter, you can shred it for easy spreading!

Sometimes I appreciate a good Game of Thrones episode recap, so much happens in 1 episode!

And here is the most wonderful indulgent gift you can give to a new mother…

Couple Things…

I just have a few photos to share this week and they’re mostly from Easter Sunday.  We had a trying few days with a grumpy/tired/teething/whining girl and days like that don’t seem to beget many photos. She seems to have gotten out of her funk though just in time for the weekend! I have some fun girl plans Saturday night (shower and mom’s night out!) but other than that we’ll be doing some good old hanging out as a family.


Here is a photo from our first egg hunt on Easter Sunday, Z kept the ears on the entire time and found all 8 hidden eggs all by herself!



We did seem to capture a nice family photo at our second egg hunt of the day and look how proud she was of herself after gathering another 6 eggs at our Church egg hunt!



We brought this orange and poppy seed cake to Easter dinner and it got rave reviews, you should definitely try the recipe!



Look at this face! Even when we have a bad week of moody grumpiness and I remember just how hard this parenting thing is…I am always reminded that she is just the best thing ever.  =)


Have a great weekend!  Here are some fun links:

After Z’s crazy days I immediately bought this book.  Have you read it?  Was it worth buying?

New Great Gatsby trailer – can’t wait to see this movie!

We just bought our Z a play kitchen, but the link to this DIY one has been floating around this week, I love it!

RIP Roger Ebert.
