This is what Anneliese’s room looks like right now…


We’re finally getting ready to paint her room the color we’ve had in mind since before she was born. I just hope it turns out the way I have envisioned it. I didn’t do a patch test with the paint, so I’m not positive, but I did have the paint chip up on the wall for a long time.


I can’t wait for the paint to be finished, so that we can put her room back together and actually hang her art on the walls. I feel sad that her room hasn’t been “finished” and we’ve lived here for more than half of her life – 6 months!

Meanwhile, I’ve been in the kitchen, mixing up a spice rub



…and washing some local carrots…


… for the best roast beef. Ready for the oven! (It’s in there now.)


I’m also going to make some mashed cauliflower for us. Too much food for 3 people? Maybe so, BUT I’m loving having my husband home again, and having an excuse to actually COOK-cook. Making roast beef for 2 adults is only half as crazy as making it for just one. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

(Also, husband home apparently = more blog posts. Go figure!)

Have you missed me?

I love the father and child sitting moment. It is really nice to see both parents spend time with their kids.

Glad to see you back. I understand blogging more when another pair of hands is around to help out! Hope the paint turns out how you want!

I always love reading your posts, and yes, I’m creepy enough to admit I miss you when you don’t blog. ;)

Seriously, Anneliese is the cutest baby ever.

Glad your man is home again.

I know what you mean about the cooking! My dh just got back from a year in Afghanistan at the end of February, and the change in the amount of food I need to prepare, besides making *real* meals, has probably been the biggest adjustment since he’s been home! Chicken and dumplings was his first meal back, followed closely by roast, potatoes and carrots :) It’s GOOD to have them home where they belong, isn’t it?!?

Thats okay, we have lived in 3 apartments since Capri was born and we have never gotten a room ready for her. Currently she sleeps in the living room. And we are hoping to move again at the end of the summer…which hopefully means a place we will be living in for a LONG time which means she will have a room then.

I can’t wait to see after pictures. and I want your supper…yummy…drool.
