Midweek Randoms


We had a busy week and weekend last week.  But this week is already proving to be much calmer--thank goodness!  So here's whats been going on lately (complete with random Jack pictures thrown in):

* I took my French test on Saturday...so glad to have that over!  I hope I passed.  It wasn't that hard, but I am not too great with pronouns in French.

 

* We have had a lot of CA responsibilities, and have a lot more coming up.  We just had a Valentines Day tea (which I made 70 cookies for!), and next week we have Mardi Gras and a Black History event.


* Buddy boy had some off nights last week.  All of a sudden he was waking up twice a night, crying and wanting to eat.  But thankfully he is back to sleeping through the night again!

love this little thinking face!

* I have had an exciting week as far as possible plans for next year.  Everything is still just in the beginning phase, so I will share when things are for sure!

sweet yawns

* We hosted the Classics club dinner Friday night.  There was lots of yummy food and fun conversation.


* My mom and little sister are coming here in 3 weeks and a day (and my dad and brother will come a few days after that)...CAN NOT WAIT!  I do hope that it snows for them (my brother is going skiing).

Jack playing with his Valentine's happy from Bella

* But that means that I am presenting a paper SOON...ahhh!  I need to revamp it!


This weekend we plan on taking it slow!


And, finally, our Valentine's Day meal.  I made panko crusted goat chese, baked fries, and chicken sandwiches.  Obviously, I am not very good at frying chicken.  Oh well, I just tried to pan fry it in the slightest bit of oil, so I think that was my problem!  

And the final touch...Nando's sauce!  Nando's is a South African chain that Bech and I love.  They had a location in Malawi.  And there is a grocery store here in Burlington that sells their sauces. 


My Valentine!

Oh, now I really wish we had met in VT! My mom (who lives in Fort Ethan Allen) is South African, and my husband and I lived there for a summer. My cousin lives in Malawi and all my extended family is in South Africa and Botswana.
