This was something I never thought I'd see. Steve and Lily during High Tea. You see, Steve is a hunter-gatherer...a manly man...enjoys greasin' it up in a car engine and eatin' steak while it's still bleeding. So, this was hysterical.
He had to show her how to properly drink "tea"...pinky's always out...
I was not invited..."Leave, mommy! Go away!" She'll want me back. They always do.
This was a very exciting arrival yesterday. I've wanted a KitchenAid mixer for ages! Ages!!!!!! My feet got a little sweaty and my heart sped up as I opened the box! Ahhhh, tis a thing of beauty. If Lily hadn't been watching, I may have kissed it. We christened it by making some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. (And by "we," I mean, I made them and Steve ate them.) I can tell I'm going to have some special times with this mixer.
(I feel it's important to say...Never eat 10 pumpkin chocolate chip cookies right before bed. You will regret it several times during the night.)
It's new home...
This just looked funny, so I threw it in. Lily trying to be a participant in my mostly daily "work out"...
Okay, so we went to Burger King last week and I got an Oreo Shake. It came with this freakin' huge straw! Have you ever seen one so large in all your life?! It was like drinking through a PVC pipe! It felt VERY strange to drink through it. I told Steve that it's not the kind of thing you'd want to do on a date with someone you didn't know very well. You'd feel like a moron wrapping your lips around it...not delicate or lady-like at all.
Seriously, over a half inch!! I'm not kidding when I say I've never seen a straw so wide!
Heather, look...I made one. Not quite as pretty as yours, but it's for my kitchen, so I was going for a kitcheny look.
This is the new addition of food storage we added last week. I went to the Cannery for the first time. It was a whirlwind! I was surrounded by old people that all seemed to know what they were doing and they were getting irritated by this "infant" that didn't have a clue what to do. I was actually pretty impressed how fast these old people were moving!
Incidentally, there was a 6 can limit on wheat per family because there's a shortage--which means you better go and get wheat while it's semi-affordable and you can find it! One #10 can at the Cannery was $4, around there...pretty good price. I'm hoping to get more at the next ward Cannery night. They also said that powdered milk was going up and up, so get it while it's not through the roof. There's a lady in our stake that sends emails every couple days on prepardness and items--she said that oil and shortening is also going to be going up really soon...so you know.
For $79, I got 6 wheat, 3 milk, 2 rolled oats, 1 apple slices, 1 black bean, and 3 sugar. Pretty good deal--and all I had to do was help put stuff in cans.
This is Lily sporting her new big girl undies. She only had them on a few minutes when, from the other room, I heard her say, "What happened?" She was truly concerned...and wet.
That's a wrap.
