Hey My Delicious Chocolate-Covered Strawberries! <3
Thanks for all of your comments on my last post. I always have fun sharing the recipes I come up with – especially ones that are super nutritious AND delicious!
I’ve been having fun babysitting the three little ones this week. They are always smiling and have the cutest laughs ever. I have won ONE game of Chutes and Ladders, but we were playing it “wrong” by having the slides go up and the ladders go down, so I guess it doesn’t count. I’m still really bad at Wii Baseball, but I’m really good at Wii Bowling (not real bowling sadly) and I’m okay at Wii Tennis, so I guess I’m getting there. Because I’ve been watching these kids, my life has felt NONSTOP. I can’t remember the last time I took a nap, but at least I got to sleep in till 8am this morning. Breakfast was delicious as always. I dropped by the bank to make a deposit (since I had a little more cash in my wallet then I was comfortable with) and went to Fantastic Sams for a haircut afterwards – I got about an inch off with lots of layers and side sweeping bangs and face framing layers too. I have a BetterChip review I need to finish up, an award to post about, and a few new recipes to share with you, but I’ll hopefully get a picture of me to share with you by WIAW so you can see for yourself. I’m also going to redo my post on my Homemade Bread — I’ve taken new pictures to explain the process better. I’ll take you step-by-step in how to do it (with tips on what you should look for and how it should feel). I’ll let you know when I get all of this set up.
Speaking of breakfast…

How often do you get your haircut? I get it done every 6-8 weeks, or when I feel like I need one. I hadn’t had one for a while, and sometimes there are just those days that you feel like you need one. So I went and had some fun – tried some styles I haven’t had before.
Do you ever take naps? I love taking them when I get the chance. Usually I get through the day without one, but I will take one if I can. It’s pretty weird that I love taking naps now as a young adult, because as a child I hated them. I stopped taking naps when I was two years old! But now, I love them!
