Spring's a busy time for us, with birthdays and celebrations galore, and trips to see family always popping up. In the last month we've been to Pennsylvania, Cleveland and St. Louis to help mark milestones in our niece and nephews' lives (birthday, 1st communion and confirmation!). Add to it that O. is playing soccer again, and we're on our way to being a family with far too many time commitments.
Also, if I'm honest, being pregnant and trying to keep up with the blog is kicking my butt. Every time I have a free moment to sit down to post, I find myself just trying to keep my eyes open and my DVR from overflowing instead. I've been taping a Gilmore Girls episode every day on ABC Family to catch up on the few episodes I've never seen, and it's gotten to be a bit much. And oh no, here comes sweeps week!
Never fear, J. is traveling a lot in May, and with that always comes some insomnia, so I'm sure I'll have some good opportunities to share some more thoughtful thoughts with you soon!
Oh, and just to make this post something other than an apology, I'm making lasagna for O's family birthday party on Saturday, and I'm never happy with how mine turns out. Lasagna was the first thing I ever cooked for J., and he still raves about it (it was the standard Betty Crocker cookbook recipe), and comments that it's never tasted the same since then. I blame it on the fact that he was pretty buzzed when he ate it, after a day of hanging out with his buddies playing Golden Tee. Or maybe he was just drunk with love. Whichever, I think I need to try a new recipe. I've printed out The Pioneer Woman's "Best Lasagna Ever" to try, but am also open to YOUR suggestions. Thanks!
