Five on Snowy Friday

No theme.  No topic.  No main idea.  Just 5 of my most random thoughts of the week and things I need your help with too!  

One.  The girls are on the move.  I swear every day I have laid them down in their gym and the next thing I know they are halfway across the dining room floor.  We're not crawling yet, just avid rollers and wigglers.  Like a Jurassic Park dinosaur, somehow they find a way.  I got them a Graco TotBloc and it looks great.  Very happy with it.  It's basically just a bigger version of a Pack n Play.  Main problem... I can't find sheets for it anywhere??  I don't even really see them for sale online.  Anyone have one of these things??  How do you protect it from spit up and exploding diapers?? 

Two.  I don't know what's gotten into me but somehow I've gone all ballsy in the kitchen and have started throwing random sh*t in a bowl and cooking it up.  No recipe.  No measurements.  Just taking a bunch of stuff that sounds like it might be good together and hoping for the best.  So far... so great!  Made these healthy banana muffins this morning and was quite pleased!  Here's what I put in them...

  • Mashed bananas
  • Eggs
  • Rolled oats
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Honey
  • Dash of baking soda
  • Dark chocolate chips
Steps:  1. Dump what seems like a reasonable amount in a bowl.  2. Mix until it looks like a batter.  3. Bake until it looks like a muffin.  

Haha  great recipe right?? 

Three.  Shared this video on my personal Facebook page this week because I thought it was so hysterical.  Maybe it's having two young daughters myself, but it totally resonated with me and I can hardly wait to see what kind of stuff my own come up with!

Four.  Valentine's Day decor.  I was so sad putting away the Christmas decorations earlier this month and thought to myself that this would be the year that I would get together some good Valentine's stuff.  You know, just to make the transition a little less painful.  Well I went to ALL of my go-to spots.... Michaels, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby.... I find nothing!  Nothing I tell you!  Nothing but some stupid aluminum confetti looking hearts.  Where do you people with cute Valentine's Day mantles find this stuff??

Five.  I'm writing this from the comfort of my own couch.  At 2:00.  On a Friday afternoon.  Snow Day #1 is here, and with the Blizzard of '16 on the horizon, the family and I are ready to hunker down and tough out the storm (i.e. drink wine in sweatpants while snuggling adorable babies).  It did briefly occur to me that this would be the first year that we cannot simply walk to the bar in the snowstorm, but with daughters this precious, I hardly consider it a sacrifice.  Stay warm everyone!

  2. Your twins!! I just can't get enough of them. Can't stop laughing at your recipe! I've never created a recipe, but if I did, I'm sure it would sound the same way!
