Happy Almost Friday! We’re looking at a busy Saturday (2 soccer games, Nutcracker prep class, birthday party…) but I’m hoping to get the kids caught up on sleep this weekend. The morning tantrums are killllllling me. Isla earned a spirit wear day, and this morning’s battle was why she could not tie up her shirt or tuck it into her leggings.
Last night was September book club at my friend Kate’s. This month we read The Whisper Network, which was kind of interesting because it was set in Dallas… but otherwise I thought it was just okay. Kate put together the most gorgeous cheese and dessert board for dinner, and I’m kicking myself for not snapping a pic.
I made a quick appetizer that I found on one of my favorite Instagram accounts, @cattlebaronincashmere. She posts the best gifts, recipes and memes. Love me a good meme.
This app was really easy. You spread apricot preserves on the bottom of a tray/plate, then place a log of goat cheese on top. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios, drizzle with honey, then top the whole thing with chopped basil. EASY! I got all the ingredients at Trader Joe’s.
It was really pretty and delicious. She recommends serving it with a sliced baguette or water crackers.
I didn’t go to bed until 1am, and then Isla woke me up at 3:30 to fix her sound machine. All that to say- my bed is sounding pretty good right now! Have a great weekend!
