Thanks for the support on my last post. Ah - the struggles and questioning about going back to work.
Bill is away this weekend and Nick has been great. My sister came to stay with me yesterday and to make Christmas cookies. She came over around 3 and had been out the night before, so by 8pm she was passed out on my couch. No cookies were made. Haha. This morning I made pancake Sunday for her, but she was totally not into my healthy pumpkin pancakes. And as a side note, we met at a raw cafe over the summer and she was looking at her food like it was going to bite or attack her. We don't have the same eating habits and she can definitely eat more than me and still look good. The unfairness.
Today after we woke up and made the pancakes, it was time for some cookie baking. She picked out some recipes - peanut butter chocolate and black and white macaroons. She did most of the work - I have a cookie exchange on wednesday night so I wanted to use one of the recipes for it. The macaroons while totally horrible for you, were the winner since most people are bringing peanut butter/chocolate cookies. I'll post pictures later.
GUM - I was a gum ADDICT. Recently I stopped buying it and have been able to live without it!
I read in Runner's World yesterday that if you want to try to eat something healthier than desserts, buy some sugary cereal for your sweet tooth and you'll get a load of vitamins! So I took their advice and bought some reeses puffs today. Oh man - they are so good. None for Nick though! They are the perfect size for him, but way too much sugar.
For my airplane birthday theme, I'm working on the invites and favor labels. I think the favors will be some kind of food, maybe peanuts for the airplane thing or small cookies - any ideas?
Next I'm trying to think of a birthday banner - maybe airplane scrapbook paper as the background with big letters of his name saying Happy 1st birthday Nick. There is so much cool stuff on Etsy - I go on and get ideas, then make them myself!
