…just thought I would share the current earworm in my head – You’re Welcome 🙂
I hope you all had a great Easter – ours was, um…filling. Ham, potatoes, salads, yummy carrot-pineapple cake (trust me, you will never eat Carrot Cake the same way again). One new thing I tried was making homemade Ranch Dressing – I used this recipe, and it was DELISH! I used the leftovers last night to coat chicken before I coated it in breadcrumbs and parmesan – SO yummy! We have done well eating more REAL food – I am still counting points, and watching portions. I am only about 5 pounds down, but I discovered something on my cable’s On Demand choices – the 30 day shred. Any users/lovers/haters out there??
What is your most hated least loved homemaking chore task?
If you ask my former roommate
, she would tell you “All of them”
. I really don’t *mind* any of them anymore – I put on a cute apron, good music, and I can get into a Martha -type groove. But it’s still not my FAVORITE thing to do. Imagine my absolute joy
surprise to find my oldest LOVES to vacuum – and he actually does a decent job at it! Now if I can just get him to LOVE doing dishes…
I’m also still trying to get all the painting done – we did go with Behr Butter cookie for the living room (see above-just after painting)and breezeway/den/room where everything else goes. I had originally intended to use it in the kitchen too, but see those lemons up there in my header?? I thought it would be fun to have that picture made into a canvas to hang on the wall in the kitchen. It came out GREAT, but against the butter cookie walls?? Not so much. So NOW, I am looking for THE perfect green – kind of a spring-y, bright but not too neon or pea soup-y type green. I am choosing between sassy green and pear green so far – but I am open to suggestions!
I am off Monday to Cincinnatti to attend the Pampers Blogger Day with 15 other bloggers – I am looking forward to learning more about Pampers and their commitment to vaccinating children against tetanus
. It’s something we take for granted, but tetanus claims over 125,000 children every year in less industrialized countries. Thanks to Pampers and Proctor and Gamble, every time you purchase a pacakge of pampers diapers or wipes, it purchases a vaccine for a child – an easy way to help with something you might buy anyway!
I will try to update on the trip, but I will defnitely update next week – I have a new blog design to reveal!!
