March...was a bust. Do something for myself every week? Yeah right. Moving on :p

I *did* have a "do something" goal for April even though I never posted about it. I cooked a different meal every night for the entire month. We had three leftover clean up nights...didn't want the food to go to waste! But I didn't repeat a meal the whole time. And we haven't eaten from a restaurant (other than the occasional coffee) in close to two months now. Feeling a little bit healthier and proud of myself for trying some new things (nothing complicated but we did discover some easy new favorites :)

For May, I want to sew something. I've had the machine for like 3 months now but haven't summoned the courage to try it out. I suck. I will sew *something* in the next two weeks though. And I promise to share it even if it looks like something the cat coughed up. I have a few fabric remnants that I bought to try some stuff out and plenty of inspiration. It's the skill and motivation that's lacking. It will come.

Miss Izzy turned 10 months a couple of days ago. Pure craziness, I tell ya. Still just two little teeth on the bottom but one of the top teeth is visible just under the gum. She's not thrilled with that. She's walking along furniture, starting to let go for brief moments, carrying stuff in her mouth when she crawls (no, we don't have a dog so the smarty pants figured that out by herself) sleeping in her crib all night and for one or two naps during the day, LOVING food - especially pasta (because she is mine through and through) saying mama and dada all the time, still not a cuddlebug at all watching her brothers like a hawk - she is so into what they are doing! Basically, we love her to pieces and am trying to stall these last 2 months before one as long as possible. Oh, and obviously, she's in that won't-sit-still-for-a-second phase :p

School is over in four weeks and in that time we have one day off (Memorial Day,) three field trips, a school picnic, field day, a kindergarten program, a graduation open house and an awards ceremony. How will I handle it when I have three kids in school AND involved in actual activities? I don't know how you all do it.

Yesterday was my dear husband's birthday (happy birthday, sweetie!) And we celebrated low-key with hamburgers and the richest chocolate cake ever. Thanks for joining us, mom and Scotch...errr, Scott.

And watermelon. Definitely can't forget the watermelon (looking forward to diaper changes today - woo hoo!)
