sung by a lady

Everyday last week was nice and warm-ish and then the weekend decided stink and ruin all of our plans (I know it's silly to talk about the weather when you choose to live somewhere, but still, when I saw snow outside my window this morning I was not a happy camper) but we improvised.
Friday we were in bed at 10:00 and at 10:05 decided to deep clean our house and do 2 loads of laundry, and at 11:30 decided to take Burry on a 2 mile walk. Quite a randomly-productive Friday night.
Saturday I worked, I had to strike the set for "over the river" (which is so funny and so heartwarming and I literally laughed and cried.) My dear friend directed it as a student production and two dear friends were in it. I was so proud of them. Saturday night I went on a date with Laura and her roommate to Winco in IF. When your married to a ME major that is what your Saturday night dates look like.
Sunday we went to our friends Ryan and Lisa's house for dessert and some baby time. They have, hands down, thee most adorable 6 month old baby boy named Nelson. You seriously wouldn't believe how beautiful this baby is. I rocked him to sleep and sang him lullabies and could not wait to sing to my own. Late last night I made homemade Lara Bars via the little red house (still my favorite food blog ever) I love when something only has 4 ingredients and tastes that good. We'll be eating them all week. The photos are of cocoa, it's pretty, no?
(1&1/2 cup whole pitted dates, 3ish cups of almonds, 2 TBS cocoa and a pinch of salt in a food processor until it makes a paste then form)

Happy Monday! And BYU-I students! Only 2 weeks left of classes!

I like to believe that I have a pretty good attitude about the stinky weather here. UNTIL NOW. I detest the snow with every thing in me. I need summer!

I hate dates. Well, not dates with my husband, dates you eat. But I might just try this recipe. Because yes, simple, delicious recipes are super awesome.

Another yummy recipe I would try if only I had a food processor...I think it's time for me to take the plunge.

BTW I just checked out The Little Red House. All of her recipes look right up my alley. Thanks for sharing:)
