This: When you get the irresistible urge to bake chocolate chip cookies, I highly recommend doing so while jamming to Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers. Cookies go better with folk music.
That: Also? Follow the recipe on the back of the bag of Nestle chips, but add a box of vanilla instant pudding and substitute 1/4 white sugar in place of what it calls for, then add 2/3 cup oatmeal when you add your chocolate chips. You won't be disappointed. Promise.
This: Okay, don't faint, but I am actually making an effort to catch up with Project Life (while watching the Gilmore Girls). I know!
That: I will probably do a whole separate past about these long overdue scrapbooking efforts, since I was (am) sooooooo behind (like most of 2012, HA!, but I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel), but I can already tell you 1.) I remembered how much I adore the simplicity of Project Life; 2.) I realized I've missed it terribly; c.) I must start using my DSlR more, I just have to, iPhone photos are better than nothing, and are of okay quality (usually) but I've gotten very lazy about carrying my big dog camera with me like I used to; 4.) looking back at the completed pages and reading our stories make me--and my people--extremely happy.
This: Annelise had yesterday off from school and was highly annoyed that she didn't get to, um... celebrate April Fool's with pranks on her friends or on her teachers.
That: I tried to assuage her annoyance with a hearty breakfast down at the Cracker Barrel.
As you do.
This: I don't know if I told y'all that we broke up with American Idol and X Factor last year (and really, how has your life continued without that knowledge?) and felt like our TV rotation was quite full and satisfying (ha!) without any future music superstar shows.
We were wrong.
We've decided to watch The Voice.
Because all the cool kids are doing it.
And Annelise can watch it with us sometimes too.
That: I truly hope we can continue to be friends after I reveal this next morsel. I never thought I'd get attached to a show that revolves around survival after a zombie apocalypse, but apparently I am.
Oh, how I am.
Last night Scott and I settled in to watch the season three finale which was, of course, disturbing (I've learned the hard way not to get too attached to characters) yet in a twisted way, quite hopeful. And? I might just have a little crush on Darryl (no spoilers, but I felt AWFUL for him in last week's episode!)
This: Going to the vet is not her fave.
That: Why, oh why, is animal care so ding-dang expensive?
Do you watch The Voice?
How do you feel about zombies?
