We got to finish out our nice long weekend with Stu making french toast and scrambled eggs for Mother's Day breakfast (sweet boy!). Then we headed out nice and early to IKEA to get new bins for Kaden's toys in his room. I also picked up some pillows that I plan to de-stuff to use for stuffing knitted toys I have in progress. (And we needed diapers, floss and broccoli so we stopped by Carrefour)
We came home and I set to work on Kaden's room, organizing all of his toys by category and brain-stimulating level, which he promptly destroyed. Haha. But now he has some bins I can easily dump his toys into to "clean up". I finished organizing my little nook in our room and I am so excited to have a place in our house that is mine and that I don't have to share. It's been a long time since I've had anything that was only mine! :)
We finished the night ordering in Chinese food and watching Jerry Maguire (which says the f word a LOT and I never noticed that before I was watching it with an almost-two-year-old-who-picks-up-everything-we-say-now. So we apparently need to be a little more choosy when it comes to movies from now on.
Last week after I finished The Wednesday Letters (pretty good, easy read), I picked up A Girl Named Zippy, which I had been passing by every time I was looking for a new book to read. In true judging-a-book-by-its-cover form, I ignored it because it "looked" boring. Wrong! I loved it. It was clever and laugh-out-loud-funny in parts (just as Stu!) and I really enjoyed it. I was bummed when I finished it last night. (I won't even tell you what book I picked back up once again... but I swear it's only temporary since I have a final today and tomorrow... then I'll pick a new book!).
Today I spent the morning making "dinners" which entails me making stuff I plan to put right in the fridge for Stu to be able to take to work throughout the week. I made Broccoli Soup and Chicken with Biscuits... two of my favorites. If you need something new, they are both on my food blog and are fabulous!
That's about it for us! I great weekend and this week is the last week of school.
