Date Night and a Few Answered Questions!

I’ve been MIA lately.  I know.  I’ve gotten a few messages about when I’d be back.
Geez, sorry for having children that require my attention.  I tried locking them in the bathroom, but apparently that’s frowned upon.  Also, I was afraid Little S would put Rae in the toilet.
But I’m back now.
Quit freaking out.

So last weekend Big S and I got to go on a date.

We went up to National Harbor.  We listened to music that WASN’T the Cars soundtrack.  I got to make out with his face and there was no 2-year-old ramming into my legs.
We went out to dinner.  I got to have TWO glasses of wine since I didn’t have to nurse Rae.

And I got a cupcake.  Pretty spectacular.  Then the night got pretty sexy when I was like “Hey babe.  Wanna hop in the backseat with me….I have to pump.”
SO ROMANTIC.

So I have been keeping up with T25.  I’ve been running as well.  Some one asked (Submit a question to the right of this post if you have a question too.) if I was still going to review T25 after my last post.  And yes I will.  I like working out.  It’s pretty much the only thing that keeps me sane.  I will try to put together a post with my first months results next week and how I think it’s going.

Someone also asked about all my bread.  So as many of you know, I do my little letter project every few days as a way to brighten up someone’s day.  I’ve also been baking bread every other day or so and have started doing something I like to call “Random Acts of Bread/Brownies”.  Kind of like random acts of kindness, but I’m not really good at that whole being “kind” thing.  I think it’s my sarcastic tone.  Anyway, so instead of being nice, I just bring people bread.  How do you get some of my awesome baking?  Don’t ask.  I like it to be a surprise.
Someone also requested a few of my favorite bread recipes, and here they are.

Cinnamon Bread– Probably the best bread I’ve ever had.
Honey Oat Bread– Before you roll the dough, add a layer of honey on the inside of extra calories deliciousness.
Amish White Bread– We use this for sandwiches at our house.
Sweet Rolls– Delicious.
Snickerdoodle Bread– Made this with the intention of giving it away.  I ate it all.
Apple Cinnamon Bread– Exchange the oil for 1 cup of applesauce to cut the calories.  Also, I added 2 tsp of cinnamon to make this a cinnamon apple bread instead of just apple bread.  Oh, and definately add some cinnamon sugar on the top to make it extra awesome.

Working with yeast can be kind of tricky.

This is what I came home to today, that’s what I get for trying to go shopping when I have bread rising.

I leave you with this:

You’re welcome.
