Fantastic Friday

Emily (and the schleppers) survived the first week of preschool!  Exhausted, nonetheless, all of us!

On Wednesday afternoon, I took the "biggles" to the Hasbro open casting call.  Also exhausting.  We'll see if anything comes about.  Thanks to good ol' OnStar, we found our way.  My GPS couldn't call up the address-Newton Center, Newton Highlands, Newton Upper Falls, Newton Lower Falls.  Thank you OnStar!

Mommy had a playdate last night with two of her finest friends from her teaching days in Sudbury.  It was nice to finally catch up with "Teacher Amie" and "Teacher Melissa."  Oh, and the frozen margaritas and home-made guacamole made it even more fun.  I couldn't find any shot glasses, but I'm not telling what I used to measure the ratios!  A big thank you to Daddy for grilling for us!

Today, I ventured off to Dream Dinners for my first encounter.  WOW!  I survived; I made some yummy stuff and I cannot wait to try them all.  It feels unbelievable to have so many dinners already prepared and ready to be popped in the oven/grill.  I had FUN too.  No mess, no clean up, no browsing through cookbooks deciding what needs to go on the shopping list.  UNREAL.  Came home, fed the monster and took a walk by myself.  Quite a beautiful day.  Here's the list of what I concocted:

  1. Hearty Back-to-School Beef Stew
  2. Cornflake Crusted Chicken with Dipping Sauce
  3. Savory Grilled Pork Chops with Sweet Potato Fries
  4. Pesto Cheese Ravioli with Chicken and Walnuts
  5. Buffalo Ranch Chicken
  6. Nana's Lasagna
  7. Classic Chicken and Dumplings
  8. Arroz con Pollo
  9. Orangey Asian Chicken
  10. Salmon and Crab Pinwheels
  11. Monte Cristo Chicken
So what's a girl to do with all her free time?  
Bake Cookies!

Did I forget to mention that my little monster SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT LAST NIGHT?  YUP!  He did it.  He went to bed around 9:30 and survived the night all the way until 6am.  I remember hearing Chris turning over around 5am and mumbling something like, "I guess he's not getting up to eat...."  WOW.  Let's hope he keeps it up!

And my dear friends Jenn and Will welcomed their first baby into the world last night at 8:05pm.  Welcome to the world Benjamin.  I'm looking forward to some snuggles.

Beautiful Benjamin!

We have nothing on the calendar this weekend - HOORAY!  I love that.  We are wondering where the Traverse should take us.  Perhaps apple picking?  Don't forget to start following my blog or join Annie's Traverse Travels on facebook for your chance to win a trip to Story Land!  Winners will be picked in just a few short weeks! Good luck!
