That's what I'm doing.
Today was my MARVELOUS dh's 36th birthday, so I didn't relax as much as I probably could have.
I made these AMAZING French Breakfasts Puffs. Seriously - go there NOW! Try them tomorrow morning. They were terrific! My kiddos ate 'em up. My muffins have always been, um, so-so. Kind of hit-or-miss. But these were terrific - I followed her recipe exactly (including the praying & fainting - ha!).
I got this recipe from a new site (a new site to me, anyways): The Pioneer Woman
I have been drooling over many of her recipes and am enjoying her photography as well. I like her style! Check it out if you have a minute~
We made up a batch of these this morning, plus homemade pizza for my hubby's birthday dinner. I made up the "Hole Cake" for his birthday (it's a cake made in a bunt pan - it's kinda a tradition around here now - "hey, there's a hole in this cake"). With all that, plus nursing, diaper changes, toy pick-ups and breaking up disagreements - that just about filled my day. The rest was trying to rest and read a bit more of my new books.
It has been a great day! I am so blessed by this man God has graciously put in my life. He is a wonderful leader & provider, yet tender and kind and loving too (yes, they *can* go together). He puts up with my quirks, doesn't put up with my attitudes, and loves me through it all! I am so blessed to have this man be the father of my children - I know they are watching his every move and I can relax knowing they have a great example of a godly man in their father!
So luv ya, hon (you are snoring behind me ~ poor tired baby, you work hard) -
Happy Birthday and thank the Lord God
He gave you the grace to put up with me! ;~)
p.s. more on the surgery and procedures and hospital to come....right now my lil' one wants to nurse and ever since I was away from him and couldn't nurse him, I am MORE than willing to nurse him whenever and as much as he desires. Sweet cheeked baby~
