+ chocolate covered pomegranate seeds. That’s what’s on the baking menu for this weekend.
+ I went to bed in tears last night after watching videos. It was so incredibly moving and made me want to crawl in Jake’s crib and snuggle him all night long.
+ On Wednesdays we wear pink… it’s like an automatic sentence in my head. I digress. On Wednesdays when we don’t quite make it to storytime due to nap interference I try to do a craft with Jake. Yes, a craft with a seven-month-old. I may be insane. This week I made edible paint and we ‘painted’ leaves cut out of paper. By painted, I mean, tried to eat. I think we had some salvageable ones for cards though. More on that next week.
+ I received a box full of macarons from Sucré and have yet to indulge in one. I just can’t stop staring at the prettiness.
+ I have almost completely given up drinking Diet Coke. This post might just given me that last push I need.
+ I’m deep in the process of overhauling this blog…including a name change! Busy Girl was started when I was back in college (dating myself here…since this blog has been around for almost eight years on various platforms). But this has become much less about me as an individual and more about my family, being a mama, life in Cleveland and just general finds…fashion, recipes, diy projects. To say it is a lifestyle blog would I guess be the correct representation. I’m just starting to feel that the name doesn’t really reflect the content, nor am I really a ‘girl’ anymore. The ‘busy’ part. Well, that’s true. So some changes are a’coming! I am :::fingers crossed:: aiming for a ‘relaunch’ of sorts within the next two weeks, including some giveaways to be arriving on your doorstep by Christmas!
+ Also, we are about to start gutting our kitchen. Which makes tackling a blog relaunch all that more insane.
+ And there are only three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. (add another point to the insanity score)
