Bread Pudding

Drool. Need I say more??? Used sweet bread and loved it!!

Before I made this, I could probably count on two hands how many times I've eaten bread pudding. Always thought it was super difficult to make, so I didn't even bother looking at a recipe. But now that I've made this twice, I'm in love!

Breaking Dawn

Okay so I need to admit.... I'm a huge Twilight junkie. I've read all the books... twice. Have all the movies. Bought all the movie guides. I definitely don't like the movies for the acting (can you say horrible??). Don't know what it is..... maybe that forever love??? All that ridiculous drama? Team Edward vs. Team Jacob?? Whatever the case, I'm BEYOND excited for the final installment to come out in a couple of months (not to mention relieved that I won't have to wait for another movie to come out). While I'll wait a couple of weeks to avoid the teenage craziness, I'll definitely go pay to see the movie in the theater (which is an extremely RARE occurrence these days). Troy's not really a big fan, but I seem to have got my sister hooked on it!

Love is ALL around!

My cousin (well, technically my mom's cousin) at My Healthy 'Ohana posted about a blog post she read that lists "100 Ways You Know You're a Mom." Can I just say that I'm totally in love with this list?? A lot of giggles and MMHMMs have been coming out of my mouth while reading this. Here are some of my faves... I'll try not to list them all! :)

2. A trip to the grocery store alone is your idea of a spontaneous getaway. (But then poor hubby needs to watch baby.)
12. Lugging the baby carrier is your idea of a workout.
15. You can’t remember the last time you ate a meal while it was still hot.
26. You have an entire Pinterest board full of crafts you will never get around to actually doing. (This actually makes me sad. I really would love to actually do a few of them!!)
68. You couldn’t watch the Olympics without wondering if that might be your kids one day. (Troy said that Noah's going to be the next Michael Phelps. I'm not complaining.)
77. Cutting a tiny person’s finger nails terrifies you. (I made Noah bleed once and I'm so scared to do it again!)
and the best one....
100. You love deeper than today and further than tomorrow.

Life has been insanely insane lately. Hubby's brother got married over the weekend, so the past few weekends have been crazy busy with the bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal, and of course, the big day. Troy and I were both in the wedding party, so making sure Noah was good with his grandma was added stress. Just had to make sure she had everything he needed!! Good thing this past weekend was a 3-day weekend... allowed us to recover a bit. Such a perfect day!!

Congratulations Jesse, Jenelle, and baby Ariana!!!!
