A Few Random Things...

*I loved this article in the NY Times about building forts with your kids.  It's such a universal experience, isn't it?  I remember so clearly building forts when I was little - it was one of my favorite things to do.  I used pillows and blankets inside; I used lawn chairs and towels outside.

*I made this for dinner last night.  It's a really good vegetarian dinner.   (Emily and Mom - print this one out and save it!)  Aaron cleaned his plate!  It's easy and super yummy.  A couple notes:  I omitted the jalapeños to make it more kid-friendly, and I used diced tomatoes because that's what I had.  I also didn't have cilantro.

*I really liked this post.  I can completely relate, right down to the music choices.  I don't feel like a middle-aged mom, but then I guess this is what it feels like.

*I'm reading this book right now.  Totally different from my usual books, but it's fun and interesting so far.

*It turns out I am a fan of Jack White.  That took me a bit by surprise, but I am kinda digging his new album.

*Another music link - If you want to hear a little bluegrass.  You can't go wrong with Gillian Welch, and there are some other fun ones in here too.

*The wrinkles around my eyes are getting out of control.  I blame my kids.  They make me smile and laugh too much.  Do you have any good eye cream recommendations?

*Date night tomorrow night.  Dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday and his new job.  I'm thinking we should go see a movie too, although there aren't many decent movie choices in the Spring.  Maybe The Hunger Games?  Hm...

Have an awesome weekend!


  1. I ran into Jack White in my hometown (Janesville, WI) at the Perkins a few years back. So Random.

  2. Love that fort article!!

    Don't love wrinkles :)... I'm a fan of Boots products @ Target... excellent reviews/affordable prices- win/win.

  3. I have just the thing for wrinkles...it will be on its way to you soon I promise... L x

  4. That book sounds so interesting. I just finished up The Law of Dreams, it was unlike anything I'd ever read before. I loved every page of it. My reading style has changed so much over the last year. I used to only read things that were educational, because reading and not learning seemed to be such a waste of time, but lately all I want to read is stuff that doesn't relate to the world I live in whatsoever. Happy weekend! And pass on the wrinkle advice.

  5. totally felt the same about jack white!

  6. good random thoughts - liked the link about being a middle aged mum - interesting.
