Sofia had the best bath of her life tonight & stayed in there until her little hands and feet were wrinkled all over.
Also, I just went in to check on her, usually she's sound asleep but tonight she was wide awake. She stood up arms in the air, I picked her up, she pointed to the rocker & told me to "SIT!", then looked up at the monitor and said "Dada, wa wa" - Mike was there 30 seconds later with a fresh water and big girl straw. I swear she's 1.5 going on 16! ;)
Our weekend was busy - we watched my niece, went to a wedding Saturday & stayed out entirely way too late which led to bad decisions, like McD's for a late night fish filet (Sofia woke up at 6:58am, that was a fun one!) & the guys stained the deck all day Sunday while I tried to pick up the pieces of our life (aka laundry, cleaning, grocery store, change the sheets & plan our week).
Monday| Beef stir-fry with steamed rice. I buy one of the Birds Eye stir-fry frozen mix bags & cut up whatever veggies we have fresh and add it to a big skillet of cooked beef or chicken then pour in teriyaki, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic & sriracha then let it cook down for about 10 minutes.
Tuesday| Skillet Shrimp with broccoli and pasta shells with butter, garlic & parm.
Wednesday| Bacon Asparagus Pasta adapted via
Thursday| Ranch Chicken Pasta Salad - this is a quick one, cook 2 chicken breasts & cube it, also cube 1/2 block of cheddar and dice a couple cherry tomatoes then mix with this pasta salad and sprinkle the top with bacon.
Friday| Out - not really out but more like take-out in bed, which happens to be one of my most favorite times of the week! ;)
Saturday| Grilled steaks, loaded baked potatoes & asparagus. Speaking of potatoes, did you know you should always buy organic? Potatoes carry a huge amount of pesticides - the soil they grow in is treated with chemicals, they are sprayed with more toxins before hitting the grocery store & it all survives in the meat of the potato, yeah the part that we eat.
Hope your Easter week is off to a great start!
