The pizza cutter trick, featured in my Thoughts throughout the day post.
Travis thought of this one. It's so quick and easy. Much better than a fork and knife.
The tumblr Mary Is My Homegirl.
Seriously - that lady is hilarious! You have got to check it out.
But Hallie, if you are post partum you might want to wait a couple of days. You will laugh so hard it will hurt your stomach muscles.
My new KitchenAid immersion blender.
I love this bad boy. We got the two speed one, on sale, with our tax refund money. It's been great with soups, whipped potatoes, smoothies, and milkshakes so far and I can't wait to use it this summer when I make fresh marinara sauce with tomatoes from our garden.
Here's a little updatae: I meant to originally say that if anyone is looking for an immersion blender America's Test Kitchen rated KitchenAid the best. We're big ATK fans and so that was all we needed to hear.
Also featured in my stream of consciousness post:
The "baby-proof the kitchen drawers" yardstick trick.
I learned this one from a woman in the parish I grew up in.
The boys also use the yardstick when they play Mass, processing in with it like it's a crucifix.
The tulips that my husband brought home for me. There were so many I have three bouquets throughout the house.
He loves me.
It may also be true that the other reason he got them is this:
He was driving home from Mass and I asked if he would be playing racquetball with his co-worker as he usually does on Sunday afternoons.
Travis: I don't know. Text him for me.
Me, texting co-worker as Travis, using Travis' phone: Are we playing today?
Co-worker: Yeah. When?
Me, again, as Trav: Any time. I just have to be home by 4 with flowers.
Co-worker: How about 12:30?
Me: See you then.
He was home by 3, with my favorite flower.
