Weekend Update - Hanging Out

This past weekend was relaxing. I had a cold, but it never got too bad. The added rest over the weekend helped a lot, I think. I went to bed obscenely early on Friday night because Saturday is my day to wake up with Little Miss while Husband sleeps in. Saturday, I woke up with Little Miss. We watched some tv, had breakfast and then got ready to take a walk. It was a little cooler outside than I expected so we just went to the mall. Little Miss got a new pair of shoes which she insisted on wearing out of the store. Then, I picked up an Easter dress for her on sale. When we got home, she wanted pasta for lunch so I boiled her up some elbow macaroni. She went into the kitchen drawer and pulled out a wooden spoon (just like the one I was using to stir the elbows). Then, she ran out of the room. She came back with her wooden spoon and her step stool. So, under crazy supervision, she "helped" me cook. She's been very fascinated about watching me cook and "helping". It'll be fun when she can do more around the kitchen. Later, there was nap, dinner and bed time.

On Sunday, Husband woke up with Little Miss while I slept late and lounged in bed. When I got up, we did go to the grocery store after which Little Miss napped. Then, we played and cooked a special dinner for the Oscars. I won the Oscar pool. Husband, my mother and I have been doing this Oscar pool for about 12 years. Husband has won the majority of the years, but I have won the most in recent years. My mother did hit a personal high last night though and even beat Husband which has never happened. We enjoyed the awards overall, and I can't wait to see the few movies I missed, but I'm glad that I saw as many as I could.

I've been horrible about taking photos lately, but the above photo is right before we made lunch on Saturday. The below photo is from this morning. I thought I'd take advantage of the nice weather and dress Little Miss in something that said Spring. She seemed to like it and even wore the hat for awhile though I'm sure she took it off as soon as I turned my back. Those are the new shoes in the photo, too. Little Miss won't wear any other shoes. She even napped in them the other day, refusing to take them off.

Steak, stuffed tomatoes. Rob had buttered noodles and I made fried potatoes. I made fondue from Trader Joe's, but I didn't like it which was super disappointing.

I think turquoise might be Little Miss' color! The picture of the two of you is so cute.

I love the pictures, especially the one of both of you. Precious.

I LOL at the "crazy supervision" comment. Amazing how good the boiling water + child combination can make the senses go on high alert.
