I can only laugh as I tell this story....a couple of weekends ago, Carter and I were going to make cupcakes. The recipe called for something I didn't have (actually I did have it, but couldn't find it at the time! Surprise, surprise!) So I put the frosting, cupcake liners and sprinkles on the counter.
Well, the following Saturday, with my missing stick of butter in hand, we got ready to make the cupcakes. Then I realized all of the stuff I had placed on the counter was missing. Seriously, I literally spent over half and hour looking for those things. I basically took everything out of the pantry trying to find the stuff. I even called Theo at work to see if he knew where they were but no such luck. So we made a plain cake (since I didn't have any liners) and we made a special trip to Target just to get more frosting.
A couple of days later, I was cleaning out the car. As I got Carter's Diego backpack out, I noticed something bulging from the outside pocket. Lo and behold, it the missing frosting! I was relieved to know I hadn't lost my mind but still puzzled about where the sprinkles and cupcake liners were.
Today, I am doing laundry. Under the massive pile of kids clothes was another one of Carter's bags.
My first thought was "Oh no, please don't let there be food in here". When I opened up the bag, this is what I found:
Guilty as charged!
Theo was right next to me and we both just busted out laughing! At least I haven't toatlly lost my mind :)
And because I haven't posted many pictures lately, here are some for the grandparents (and our friends!).
Olivia also has another tooth (her top right side tooth) and I keep expecting more to pop through. If you click on the second picture to enlarge it, you can see her little tooth just barely poking through :)
Also, I have been doing a lot of shopping lately (much to the dismay of Theo!). He said I am acting like I have this itch I just have to scratch. But then I realized it's because I haven't had a chance to buy cute summer clothes in four years. Last summer, I was big pregnant with Olivia. The summer before that I was working. The summer before that I had just started working so I bought work clothes. The summer before that I was big pregnant with Carter. Now, I want some cute clothes! But I am nothing if not a savvy, bargain shopper. I scrounged up a lot of old gift cards and had over $100 to spend. That doesn't include the gift card Theo gave me for my birthday. I bought this dress from Ann Taylor Loft.
It was originally $70 and I paid $20 for it! I wore it to church today. Theo really likes it. If I get him to take a picture in my other clothes, I will show you those too (not like you really care but I like to brag about my good bargains!)
