You all are so nice. <3
Thanks for your kind comments, and for making me feel like it was okay to share such a special
few lots of hours of birth with you. I definitely debated whether to share or not, but finally decided I wanted you all to be a part of it too. And figured that if anyone had a problem with it, they would stop reading. So thank YOU from the bottom of my heart.
Lily got dressed in an adorable outfit.
That jacket?!? SQUEAL.
And 3 minutes after taking this photo, she projectile vomited alllllll over that jacket & myself.
I actually couldn’t stop laughing while it happened….simply because she looked OH so innocent as it all just gushed out of her mouth. Gosh she makes me smile–no matter what she’s doing!
Actually, that is a lie. I am not super smiley at 3 a.m. when she wants to just keeeeeeeep on eating. :/
I couldn’t talk about non-Lily items until I shared something about Lily first. Get used to it.
But now, let’s chat food.
Specifically deeeeelicious food.
My mom, while she was here, bought me a basil plant. (I know, right?!) She also bought a huge chunk of mozzarella & a bunch of tomatoes. She made me a caprese salad one of the days she was here, and it TOTALLY hit the spot.
I was mmmmming my way through the entire bowl.
So I’ve pretty much eaten it every day since.
I am sure you were wondering what I’ve been eating, so there ya have it!
- 2 large roma tomatoes
- 3 large, fresh basil leaves
- 1.5 oz fresh mozzarella
- 1 Tb balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
- Dice the tomatoes. Place in a large bowl.
- Chop the mozzarella into small squares. Dump into the same bowl.
- Snip the basil leaves into pieces, right over the bowl.
- Add the vinegar, oil, and salt & pepper.
- Toss to coat.
Makes one really large serving.
- I am grateful for burp cloths. Always have one around a new baby….always.
- I am also thankful for washing machines. I never appreciated one so much!
- I am real thankful for pumpkin muffins. Mmmmm!
Have a WONDERFUL day! <3
p.s. happy birthday to my cute niece!
