How was your weekend? Is the weather where you are as gorgeous as it is here in San Diego?
I made the raspberry ricotta cake in the picture above this weekend. It turned out really well and was soooo easy. It’s definitely going in the “make again” pile. You can find the recipe here.
Did you watch Mad Men? What did you think? I thought it was a little slow especially since only five episodes are left in the entire series, but still entertaining. I think because it is going a little slow, it leaves me wondering every Sunday night how things are going to wrap up. Maybe that’s Matthew Weiner’s plan 🙂
I made the slow cooker beef stew I mentioned here again and I think I liked it better this time then last. The first time I made it I had a 3-week-old baby and was in a complete haze, so I think this stew was bound to taste better this time around now that I’m more rested. The only thing I did differently was that I didn’t add the frozen veggies – it was still delicious and filling.
Since my body has acclimated to getting little sleep, I now have the energy during Cecilia’s naps to do things around the house and read. I got back into reading The Girl on the Train and I’ve been totally sucked in. If I had the time, I’d never put it down. It’s getting dangerous if I read a little before I got to bed because I just want to keep going, but can’t because I know the little one will wake up in a few hours.
Are you watching the show Lip Sync Battle? I told you last week it was my new favorite show and this week’s episode rocked. It had Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt facing off. Now, I’m not generally an Anne Hathaway fan (although I did like The Devil Wears Prada), but she absolutely killed it. You can see what I mean here. Also, I’ve decided I want Emily Blunt to be my BFF.
Since I wrote my post about my March Bluum Box, my daughter has fallen even more in love with her Angel Dear Blankies. It is the sweetest thing. I’ll put it in front of her and she’ll totally cuddle it and rub it up against her face. Seriously cute.
Do you love Stella & Dot jewelry as much as I do? Do you still have gifts you need to purchase for Mother’s Day? If so, I have an online trunk show going on right now! You can shop this link and purchase some gorgeous jewelry and bags!
