you might think that it’s all rainbows and marshmallows around here, but let me be the first to tell you that it’s not. sunday was a rough night – the short guy was up about every 90 minutes – so yesterday i was not feeling too fabulous. that said, my outfit consisted of leggings covered in dog hair and a t-shirt from 1986, topped off with an off-kilter ponytail and glasses. i’m sure my husband loved coming home to that. my mom tried to get me to take a picture, but i thought i’d spare you – i think the mental image is enough. but today is a better day! beckett slept so much better last night, and i’m a much happier mama.
i was watching the barefoot contessa in my stupor yesterday, and she made peanut butter and jelly bars – hello! i decided to get my hands dirty during nap time today using this recipe. i added about an extra 1/4 cup of sugar to the dough, and i think i’d add more jelly next time, (this is not a lo-cal treat, so why not, right?) but they are still so so good. an indulgent treat that harks back to childhood – doesn’t get much better.
