Love bracelet

I just love this bracelet. Simple. Sweet. Beautiful.

And, how delicious does this applesauce recipe sound? I'm going to try it this weekend and add some brown sugar to the batch. Yum, I bet the smell in the house will be amazing!

Searching for Sugar Man

What are you up to this weekend? I think husband and I are going to check out this movie (doesn't it look great?) and maybe get sushi, and we're having dinner with some good friends. It's supposed to be around 70 degrees tomorrow, so get out and enjoy it!

Whatever you're doing, I hope you have fun! xo

Pregnancy humor

As I am about to start my third trimester, I find myself "getting" more of this pregnancy humor. My belly has been expanding at a rapid rate and I can no longer get out of a chair without groaning. Bending over to tie my shoes is becoming more and more of a chore. So much so that husband has had to help me on a couple of occasions. Soon, I have a feeling that slip on shoes will become my new besties.

Husband and I start childbirth classes tonight. I have this mental image of lots of he, he, he, hoo, hoo, hoos. It's probably nothing like that, but hopefully I don't laugh out loud and illicit those "what's with this lady?" looks.

And, how about that win last night? It's so refreshing to see the country still hopeful for positive change. Obama's speech was on the mark. Congratulations, Mr. President. Now, make us proud!

p.s. Way to go Maine and Maryland!!! And, to Minnesota for refusing to perpetuate hate.

The Faithful

““Do I love you this much?” she’d ask us, holding her hands six inches apart. “No,” we’d say, with sly smiles. “Do I love you this much?” she’d ask again, and on and on and on, each time moving her hands farther apart. But she would never get there, no matter how wide she stretched her arms. The amount that she loved us was beyond her reach. It could not be quantified or contained. It was the ten thousand named things in the Tao Te Ching’s universe and then ten thousand more. Her love was full-throated and all-encompassing and unadorned. Every day she blew through her entire reserve.”
-          Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Just wanted to share a little essay that I really enjoyed reading today. Friends are one of life's great joys.

Broccoli soup

Doesn't broccoli soup sound yummy? I love cauliflower soup and this recipe for broccoli soup caught my attention. We'll be giving this a try for Sunday dinner.
