Mrs. Meyer's

Wanting to do things the natural way, Mom picked up some  Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Lavender Laundry Detergent. Come to find out after washing just about all of my clothes in  the lovely stuff, I'm allergic to it. Since I don't want to be using Cortisone all the time, it looks like we will be going back to Tide with Downy! 

Now, just because I can't use this product, doesn't mean that I can't use the other items in the product line. We LOVE the dish soap. If you haven't tried it, you simply must; it makes your whole kitchen smell divine!

Prep Work

It's that time of year again. Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
The torte is ready and in the fridge (new addition this year), two pumpkin pies on the counter, turkey is in the fridge and ready to go, prep work for the stuffing and now to peal the potatoes...

Monday, Olivia and I attempted to make this delicious-looking Baked Chocolate Mousse. Let me simply state the turnout: FAIL. Talk about stressful. From having to chop chocolate like a mad woman, double broiling a few ingredients and whatnot, we were stressed. The timing of everything was what maxed us out! Ha!! So, what do you do when it comes out flat...I mean super flat? Why, you have your uncle and brothers eat it, of course!

No worries, Mom and I made another one this  morning. It is now in the fridge looking beautiful. ;)
Pictures to come!

Baby Update

Here's Olivia around 14 weeks:

She is 16 weeks now, so we need another picture! It's amazing how one can grow in just two weeks. ;)
