What's Going on with YOU, Jenny?

Well since you asked...
  • I know I am the last person on the planet to visit Pioneer Woman's website, but I spent my day yesterday perusing the recipes and I am in LOVE.  I'm just sad I can't make everything right this second!  And that butter is the number one ingredient in every single recipe.  Okay.  So maybe sad is the wrong word.  Perhaps salivating is better?
  •  I shall be making 3 or 4 of her recipes in the next two weeks.  I'll let you know how they go!
  • We have another birthday party to go to this weekend.  And if I'm being honest, I could not be more excited!  My little Braden is turning one!  I say "my" like he's my child.  He's not.  But I want him.  How could you not?  

That little face gets me every time. And he's just the happiest little boy I have ever seen.  Oh I want to squeeze those little cheekies!!

Seriously.  I am obsessed with this kid.  I think I scare his parents a little.  And Matt for sure.

I need one.  Like now.

Then I had his name embroidered on the body.  Braden is all about the monkeys.  He was a monkey for Halloween and it's what his parents have called him all year.  So I thought this was very fitting for the little guy.

  • I'm feeling almost 100% better!  Right in time for birthday cake!  Thanks goodness.
  • I missed my 300th post!  Today is 301 in case you were wondering.  I can't believe I've blabbed on for 301 posts and I still have readers.  Ha!  Thanks for sticking with me friends.
  • I've almost hit my fundraising goal for the 3-Day!  Can you believe it?  I sure can't.  I have been beyond humbled by the donations I have received and could not be more thrilled at the progress I have seen.  Only $339 to go!
  • I have to walk 10 miles on Saturday.  It's supposed to rain.  Ick.
  • Can you believe it's almost freaking May!?!  For some reason that just astounds me.  This year is flying by.
  • My sister is coming next weekend!!  We're going to a casino night hosted by the Junior League and then we're going camping!  Yes.  I camp.  Well, I used to camp.  Now, I eat s'mores.  Same thing, right?
  • It's Friday!  Since I was out sick on Monday this week was a breeze.  I'm in favor of three day weekends.  Who's with me?

I haven't checked out Pioneer Womans blog yet either but just yesterday I read an article about her in WomansDay magazine so I think I'll check it out too! Have a great weekend!

What a cutie! Have fun at his party! I can't wait to hear which PW recipes you're making ... I love her stuff. Although mine never looks quite as gorgeous. And lastly, way to go on your fund raising! that's amazing.

PW is a goddess. but much like paula deen - she makes me extremely sad with her overuse of butter, heavy cream, and generally mass quantities of fat. then again - i'm sure that's why her stuff tastes DELICIOUS. i've made her mac & cheese before - unreal.

Love the monkey present, and Braden is too cute! I'm glad you are feeling better, and I totally can't believe it's Friday! I took Monday off for some extended b-day celebrating so this week has been a breeze! I love it and wish it could always be like this!!!

I'm with you. Babies like that? I must have one immediately.

The Shabby Princess said...

Um, I most borrow that baby. Stat.

Also, I can't even look at PW's food site without drooling. Hence, why I don't often go there during work hours. Ha!
