How's your weekend going? Mine has been going well and I love the productive feeling I have when I am crossing things off my to-do-listleft and right. That termlazy weekend morning? That doesn't happen so much 'round here and that's fine by me. I love handing Skylar off for a few hours with Scott and I go do yogaand then run errands at warp speedwithout having to utter the phrases"honeyplease don't touch anything" and "we look with our eyesnot our hands" a hundred times.Makes the shopping experience a little easier and fasterno doubt. What have you been up to? Cookingor strategizing what you're going to cookfor the Big Game tomorrow? Any plans? As I've mentionedI am laying lowdoing nothingand am thrilled about it! Thanks to everyone who's left recipe links in the comment fields about what you're making....great ideas!
