Being at the ripe old age of 27… :) I guess you could say that I definitely feel like I’ve gotten things figured out. For example:
I know that two of the ingredients to a great date night are, #1-
my handsome husband, and #2-
a very dry cider.
And by trial and error, I have figured out that at The Federal in Durham
you ALWAYS throw caution to the wind and order your meal with fries and a side of poblano mayo.
Period. And you always order a side of poblano mayo for your date, otherwise they will eat all of yours.
I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. :)
I learned that given the choice between a juice pouch (which Ella enjoyed for the first time EVER)
and cake, Ella will happily choose
cake. The juice pouch is tempting, but not as tempting as that sweet, sweet frosting.
I also learned that balloons make the best accessory to an outfit.
No matter how big the bunch.
I learned that the secret ingredient to the PERFECT football game is:
And that same handsome husband…
…and when your team wins.
I learned that everything is WAY MORE FUN with Ella.
But I already knew that.
And she didn’t fail to remind me of how she earned her nickname.
She loves the gluten. One WHOLE hot dog and half a pretzel. Baby loves the carbs.
My bestie sister taught me TWO very important lessons this past weekend.
The first being that you don’t only check the ingredient list for gluten.
You also check the nutrition facts.
This tiny little bottle of PET Pumpkin Spice Nog may seem harmless, but that little baby is packing a punch. A whopping 200 calories per serving, which may make you think, ehhh…no big deal. Until you realize that that tiny bottle is FOUR SERVINGS. FOUR SERVINGS my friends. 800 calories. 36 grams of fat.
On a healthier note, my sister also taught me a brand new way to use greek yogurt!
And I will teach you how to make these babies tomorrow! :)
Speaking of learning, maybe you guys can help me find a solution to a BIG problem.
I woke up this morning with a GIANT “crick in my neck” and I’m honestly at a loss. I’ve never had one last an entire day, and this one is actually getting worse. I can only hold my head in a slight tilt to the left with no pain. Any other position is not even possible.
I’ve tried heat, and I’m afraid that made it more tight.
