You guys should just go ahead and thank me now for not sharing the photos I took Friday afternoon. I put Jack down for a nap, but then after less than an hour heard him in there talking. Peeked at the monitor and he was sitting up in bed, so I went into his room… and there was POO EVERYWHERE. On the bed, on his stuffed animals, all over his legs. Like he had fingerpainted with it. It was horrifying. What do you even say to that? I expected to teach him not to push or steal toys, but not playing with your poop? That’s kind of a given. Or maybe not.
(And oh yeah, I definitely took some pictures.)
Needless to say we spent the rest of the afternoon in the tub.
Brian’s sister, Maggie, came into town this weekend from South Carolina and it was so much fun introducing her to Isla and getting to hang out. The weather was gorgeous so we headed to the Arboretum on Saturday.
It is SO HARD to get good pictures of Jack anymore. Despite his awkwardness here, he had a blast with Aunt Maggie.
Isla and I at the Arboretum. She’s sporting the super cute smocked bubble that Maggie brought her.
So the Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Monkey Bread keeps popping up on Pinterest and I’ve been dying to make it. It’s much easier than I thought- you just quarter biscuit dough, throw them in a bag with some cinnamon sugar, then layer the quarters in a bundt pan. Top with a mixture of butter and brown sugar and bake for about 30 minutes.
Mine was kind of a mess and I probably should have baked it longer. The base was really crispy but the top and interior were pretty doughy. It did taste good, though!
Oh okay- so I need help! A Trader Joe’s finally FINALLY opened nearby (it’s technically in Plano, but still) and I’m planning a trip this week. For those of you who are TJ’s pros, what should I buy??? We always ship stuff home from the TJ’s in South Carolina, but I haven’t really tried any of their perishables or wine… give me some advice! Any must haves?
