the dog house

It's hard to believe it's been a month since I've posted anything here. To tell the truth, I have been in a bit of a storybook state. Sean and I are expecting a baby. For three months, I was the dormouse from Alice in Wonderland, sleepy all the time. Now I am Rapunzel's mother, insatiably craving green leafy foods. We are only about half-way through, so there is plenty of time for more tales to unfold.

This weekend is Valentine's, so I think I will have to make something with pink frosting and sprinkles. Also:
Happy weekend.
