I have had a pretty dern good week! I made my first tutu (actually, I made 2) and got to knock an item off of my "To Attempt" list and my goals for this month post.
3 times (so far) this week to stay competitive in the Get Fit Challenge over on Nap Time Crafters (see button to the right). Sweet huh? An added bonus is that the gym has child care while I'm there so there's a little over an hour 3 mornings kid free; it gives me the chance to not worry about anything and just rock out to some music (or a good book on tape, yes I'm weird) and sweat!
I filled in Jillie's month-by-month photo frame (from my projects for this month list)
kind of forgot about this birthday party for 2 little friends of Charlotte's today... so I made them some personalized birthday boxes too (plus one for a friend who's birthday we missed).
I made some homemade sweet potatoes (super easy! Nuke it, scoop out potato, puree, freeze, voila)
I updated the baby books
I became an Aunt for the FIRST time on Wednesday AND one of my best girlfriends had HER baby on Thursday!
Seriously, the only way to make this week ANY sweeter is to add chocolate... so here goes:
* not sure why my brother gets all the recipes named after him...
1-1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cups margarine or butter
1/4 cup water
In large microwaveable bowl, combine ingredients above. Microwave until butter is melted. Stir several times during cooking. Stir until sugar is melted and combined.
12 oz. package Semi-Sweet chocolate pieces
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract (or another 1tsp of vanilla)
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Spread into greased (spray with Pam) 13 x 9 inch pan.

was almost done eating all the brownies... woops
Enjoy! Happy Friday!
