The Rundown


img_9974Making: apple cake (I snapped the baking process if you care to follow along — chelseac7off)

Cooking: Ina’s mac and cheese this week. It’d better be delicious.

Drinking: water, because I’m a responsible pregnant lady.

Reading: No Bad Kids — Toddler Discipline Without Shame. I actually just finished this and really liked it.

Wanting: this pumpkin loaf! Gotta find some pumpkin around here though…

Looking: at warm clothes for P and the baby. I feel very unprepared for “real” winter.

Eating: apple cake… in like an hour.

Wishing: that this apple cake baked a little quicker.

Enjoying: the new lights we bought over the weekend at IKEA. Our apartment isn’t such a dark, depressing cave now.

Loving: the local chocolate. Tony’s Chocolonely is going to be the death of me (or really just the death of my moderate pregnancy weight gain).

Hoping: to book our tickets back to California for Christmas this week!

Needing: to figure out dinner. Ugh, everyday.

Smelling: fall spices! I made a scent on the stove and now the whole apartment smells wonderful all the time. (In case you’re curious, I used orange peels, whole cloves, a cinnamon stick, half an apple, a knob of ginger, and some whole allspice berries.)

Feeling: pregnant

Wearing: maternity jeans that are constantly falling down. I’m a mess.

Watching: Stranger Things with KC (I know, I know, we’re so behind). Ummm it’s kind of totally creepy.

Bookmarking: new fiction to read. I really need to get back into the groove of reading every night (and not just parenting stuff!) Send along your recommendations if you have any!
