Happy Valentine’s Day!
That was a fun weekend. Saturday I baked a chocolate chip peanut butter cookie cake while Wizard went to see Turbo. Turbo met Grandpa at the door and immediately took him in his room to play. It’s just too cute, and Wizard was so happy when he came home. Then when Grandpa had to leave, he told Turbo he had to go home and take care of Maggie. That’s what we always tell him. But Turbo said, “No you don’t, Grandpa. Grandma’s there taking care of Maggie.” LOLOL! Busted! Long story short, Grandpa was an hour late getting home because Turbo wanted him to stay. I accepted that excuse
Then Sunday we celebrated BLB’s birthday with just BLB and his wife. Sometimes it’s nice to keep it small. We made tri tip and shrimp, then had the cookie cake which came out pretty well. I’ve never used this recipe, and I converted it to non-dairy, so I wasn’t sure how it’d turn out. The important thing is Youngest was happy with his birthday cake. His actual birthday is in a couple days.
Also, they brought us a bottle of wine as a congratulations for our news, which I’ll share now Wizard and I signed a contract for a new house one week ago today. We’re excited (more like thrilled!), but it’s going to be a long process as it’s a new build that won’t even begin forming the foundation until next month or later. It looks like it’ll be September or October before it’s finished. I’ll be sharing a lot about the house and our experience over the next few months.
It was so fun taking Youngest and his wife to see the models. They were both so interested, and my daughter-in-law is great at decorating on a budget so I was chatting to her about everything and she was being very helpful and sweet.
I’m also excited that this house will have a great space for an office. I really haven’t given up on writing.
So that was my weekend, how was yours? I hope everyone had a fun and safe weekend!
