For The Record 03.14.14

It’s the time of the week again!  Join us on the host’s blog, Little Us, and share what’s going on with you in this week’s:


 1. Favorite Picture of the Week

View More:

Another one from L’s One year shoot! I promise to go with something else next week!

2. What TV show are you addicted to right now?

I am so hooked on this season of Pretty Little Liars!  I cannot wait for the new episode on Tuesday – will we finally find out who A is?

3. What Book(s) did you read this week?

Still reading “The Secret Lives of Fortunate Wives” by Sarah Strohmeyer.  I still really like it and would recommend it to a friend, I just can’t seem to find the time to read it.

4. Song you can’t stop listening too

Disney soundtracks.  L and I dance around the kitchen to them all the time.  His favorite is the Rascal Flats version of “Life is a Highway” from Cars.

5. Something funny/awesome that happened was….

We had a super fun play date with Lucas’s friend Bella and her mommy, Renata.  We went to a local play space and just let the kids have at it while we caught up.

6. Something not so awesome that happened was….

Honestly, I can’t think of anything really awful, or even a little awful, that happened this week!

7. Favorite blog post you posted or came across this week….

Shameless self promotion in 3…2…1…I LOVED this spaghetti squash recipe that I posted earlier this week.  As far as something I read that wasn’t from my site, this post really spoke to me.  I often find myself thinking I should have done more with L during the day.  I worry I’m not doing enough or that something is lacking.  But honestly, rocking L to sleep for his naps is enough.  Pulling all the clothes out of the laundry basket and him giggling hysterically is enough.  Having our pots and pan band while I get dinner ready is enough.  Sometimes a little reminder is nice though!

8. The best dinner you had this week was…

Sauce!  I don’t think I’ve made sauce since we moved into the new house.  I could eat sauce with a spoon (and that may or may not happen when I’m making it!) so this was a long overdue meal!  I make pasta to go along with it, just so you don’t think I’m feeding my family straight sauce.

9. Plans for the weekend….

Darrin and I are taking Lucas downtown for the St. Patrick’s Day parade and festival on Saturday.  On Sunday I am going to a breastfeeding photo shoot.  I am insanely excited for that.

10. QOTW (Question of the Week): What’s the #1 Kitchen Appliance you can’t live without?

Does the coffee maker count?  Or is that too obvious?  I use my immersion blender a lot, more than I thought I would actually.  I have a pretty inexpensive one, it was like $35 at Bed Bath and Beyond.  I would LOVE one like this though!

  1. I’m super disappointed to find out that come Season 4 we still don’t know who A is. It’s getting old IMO. I mean I’ll still watch but COME ON!

    I have an immersion blender, another thrift store find for like 3 bucks but I really want the KitchenAid Speed Immersion Blender, it comes with a couple of different attachments!

    • Are you caught up on Netflix/Prime yet? You’ll have to let me know where you are. I thought I would hate the twist at the end of last season but now I’m really liking it. I’m also really glad I never read the books, because my understanding is they are wildly different!

  2. I love the family photo! What a great shot. We love a good dance party to some Disney music around here! Thank God for Pandora 🙂

    And don’t try to lie…you know you put the sauce on the table, passed out spoons, and let everyone dig in 😉

    • IF only I could get away with just serving sauce! We have a place in my hometown that has “Sauce Sandwiches” on the menu. A toasted hoggie roll, sauce and cheese. I’m pretty sure Darrin with NOT think that was a meal!
