You guys. What a whirlwind weekend! It’s amazing how fast you get behind with everything when you’re not home on a Friday evening and you’re gone all day on Saturday. It’s nice having the change in routine. A Friday night out is always welcome. Then Saturday we went to the Big E. Kelsey rode on her first ride, a little, slow-moving train. She was fine when she got on then as soon as it started to move she was screaming crying the whole time. I felt so bad but then as soon as it ended she wanted to go back on. Toddlers…
She went on some other rides and loved them, especially the merry-go-round. Her favorite though was riding the ponies. She is totally a horse girl. We even watched the horses in the equestrian events. She sat there for a good 20 minutes watching the horses doing the small course. 20 minutes! That’s like and eternity for a toddler. We had a great time until it started raining, which was a bummer. Not only did it rain but it got COLD. Like 58 degrees cold. But it was still a great day. We’ll be going back again soon, just not when there’s a chance for rain!
Since we weren’t home most of the weekend it felt like we were playing catch-up all day yesterday, which is why I’m a little late on this post! I was way too tired to work on it last night so here it is 6:30 on a Monday morning and I’m at the computer. Starting my Monday bright and early! But these cutie little mini M&M filled brown sugar blondies are a sure-fire way to make any Monday a little bit more enjoyable. I mean really, who can resist being in a little bit cheerier mood with these super bright mini M&M’s? Instant mood enhancer right there. Not to mention there’s chocolate inside those bright little shells. So do yourself a favor (or your co-workers) and make these brown sugar blondies with mini M&M’s a part of your Monday. These will totally make you the office (or home!) hero. Enjoy!
