A peek at the past week (how I’ve been): It’s been a strange and busy week 23 for me! Lots of Christmas/Holiday parties, lots of baking, cleaning and time with friends and family.
How far along am I? 24 weeks, 1 day.
I am thinking… about our holiday and renovation plans.
I am thankful for… all the tasty treats that are at the office lately! Chocolate everywhere!
From the kitchen… Lots, but mostly cookies. This week I tried baking gingerbread for the first time (Ginger cookies from Bridgehead is one of my all time favourite things in the world, so I had to give it a shot) and was really happy with the results. I used this recipe. I also made mint brownies again (made them the year before last), and unbaked cookies/frogs/haystacks/macaroons. I will be sharing the family recipe for the unbaked cookies in the next couple of days, so keep an eye out.
I am wearing…Same ol’, same ol’. Hoping to pick up some new sweaters and shirts for myself soon, as I’m quickly growing out of EVERYTHING. Liam is apparently ginourmous.
I am creating… lots of baked goods and another post for the Ottawa Mommies. (post should be up soon)
I am going… enjoy my time off. The college is closed for the holidays so I get a week off (sadly, unpaid). We’re planning on resting and decluttering. Hopefully we’ll get the basement done in prep for the renos!
I am reading… Some baby books (namely re-reading The Baby Book by the Sears family) and The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin, as well as rereading one of my favourites: Outlander. Don’t judge me. Those books are AWESOME.
I am hoping… for some luck. I may have had a job interview today for a full time permanent position on campus!
I am hearing… Nothing new, really. Listening to a lot of holiday music. Namely, the Michael Buble Christmas album.
Around the house…Nothing new, yet.
One of my favorite things…An appreciative audience when I provide baked goods :D
