All Over the Place
One of the big disadvantages of not having enough time to blog is that when you find the time, it's hard to pick just one subject. Plus I'm having a bit of a focusing problem today. It may be the sugary cereal I started my day with. It may be a personality disorder.
One night this past week it was just us girls for dinner and not feeling the need to have a meat and potatoes meal Maddie and I made the Barefoot Contessa's Grown Up Mac and Cheese. You can find the recipe here. It was de-lish! Although next time I would skip the bread crumbs on top. It turns out I'm not a bread crumb on top kind of girl. My sweet girl Jayme also posted a mac recipe and rumor has it this girl and this girl also have a mac post coming up. It's a mac off. None of this was planned by the way. Scary, isn't it?
I still haven't chosen a paint color. Thanks so much for all of your suggestions though. I did finally decide on bedding and went with something inexpensive on ebay so that I can easily live with the regret. It is from the Simply Shabby Chic line and should please my man and still allow me to mix in some cottagey (read flowery) prints. Tricky, huh?
My beloved bloglines is shutting down in 2 days. I've tried Google Reader but I'm not digging it. The truth is that I don't like change. Unless it's my idea. And then I'm still kind of iffy. I'm wondering how you guys keep up with blogs and how you save the blog posts that you want to reference again later. I'm feeling panicked. I don't want to lose all of those ideas that I will never have the time or money to do. You understand that, right?
