The McHusband and I enjoyed our date night at the DPAC on Friday. We saw 50 Shades! A Musical Parody. I definitely enjoyed it more than the book – it was raunchy and funny and fun.
I had a nice surprise on Saturday when I picked up a dollhouse for Shannon for Olivia’s birthday. The sellers are moving to the Outer Banks and they were looking to get rid of a ton of stuff even if they had to give it away. I mentioned having an almost-one-year-old at some point and just before I got in my car to leave, the wife asked, “Would you like one of those pull-behind bike things for your son?” She said, “No charge, I would just like to see it go somewhere useful.” I told her that if it would fit in my car, I’d love to take her up on her offer. The dollhouse was already in the trunk so I did what I’m sure the McHusband would’ve done in the same situation: I shoved that sucker into the backseat.
Good thing I did because someone’s already a fan of the new toy.
On Sunday, after some bird-watching and book-reading, we headed up to our local Fantastic Sam’s for Connor’s first haircut.
Connor sat on my lap so I could help hold his head still as necessary. The stylist was very patient and while it’s not a perfect haircut, she did a good job.
(Sorry I don’t have a better before, during, and after series for you guys. I was there as a mom not a blogger. )
The weekend wrapped up with a crockpot dinner and a Bundt cake. I had the overripe bananas as well as a reason to bake with them. My office has a breakfast meeting this morning, and I like to take advantage of those to try new recipes. You know I love my
guinea pigs captive audiences.
You guys. This cake is delicious! I didn’t even make the frosting and it is fabulous. I love the pieces of apple, and the spices work together perfectly. Plus, it was really, really, REALLY easy to throw together.
I think everyone is going to go nuts over this cake, and you will too if you give it a try.
