I have been craving candy corn lately.
I am so behind on laundry this week. Camping last weekend and a sick boy have me really behind. I have never been so scared of the laundry room. I'm afraid if I go in I may never make it out. Layla even commented on how she'd never seen our laundry stacked that high.
We have been trying to eat healthy lately and I really miss cooking and eating casseroles.
Lasagna and chicken spaghetti sound amazing right now.
Neither one of the kids had ever been to the emergency room until Layla hurt her eyebrow recently and then of course last Saturday Hayden went. I'm hoping we don't make a habit of this. Once we walked in on Saturday night Hayden said, "Mommy I like this place!" They were really sweet to Layla and Hayden when we went, but I'm hopeful we won't need their services for awhile.
Oh my word. The crazy Sarah girl on The Real Housewives of OC last night. I DVR'd it. I have no words. She's lost her mind! My favorite line of the night, "Where did she park her space-ship!" Baahhhh!
I love Zoe's Kitchen. I went one night recently with a friend from high school and after that I was hooked. I had a dream about the salad I ate that night. It's their Tossed Greek Salad, but my favorite thing there is the Hibiscus tea.
It is so good. I have been searching for Hibiscus tea to brew at home. I have looked at a few grocery stores, but haven't had any luck. If you see it, let me know where I can get my hands on some!
Hayden's speech has changed so much in the last few weeks. I've noticed it and so has Gary. I didn't think much of it until his teacher also commented on it. He is using bigger words and talking so much clearer. He sounds like a little man.
One of Layla's friends was wearing a pair of glasses at school this week. Layla has been begging for me to get her a pair of fake glasses. Well, I have a HUGE stash of glasses from back before I had kids. I worked in an Optometrists office. I wore glasses for fun and acquired quite a collection. Layla's face lit up when she saw them. She tried on each and every pair. These are the cutest on her, but clearly they are too large. We had fun playing around!
And then Hayden joined in...
Such a goof!
Did you have a pen pal as a kid? I did and I loved writing her letters. It is probably pretty rare to have a snail mail pen pal these days with email and texting, but Layla has one. She is thrilled to be able to write letters to her friend in Arizona. I think it is the cutest thing. I hope their friendship grows and maybe one day they can meet in real life! I'd love to meet her Momma, she is one of my favorite blog/twitter friends. The four of us would have a fun time for sure!
Have a great Thursday!
