Hello hello girlies! I had a super busy weekend and I can't believe it is OVER! Friday night hubs and I went grocery shopping...what an exciting pair we are! Saturday I had to work all day at a job fair for private schools as a representative for the school I work for. When I got home I had to cook cook cook ! Today I was having my inlaws and BIL and SIL over for MIL's birthday lunch/dinner. It was a great chance for us to show off our new kitchen but I always get stressed cooking for them b/c MIL is an amazing cook and can be super hyper critical! They are hard-core Italian so they like good food and lots of it! Here's what I made:
-lots of apps including guacamole, tomatoes with basil and fresh mozzarella, crackers and brie, olives, sopressato sausage and fresh figs
-homemade butternut squash and sweet potatoe soup
-roasted potatoes with rosemary and sea salt
-brocoli with olive oil and balsamic
-chicken stuffed with leeks and sausage and served in a wild mushroom sauce with shitake mushrooms
-sauteed peas, onions and mushrooms on the side
-baby spinach salad with red peppers, sliced almonds and goat cheese
-SIL brought a chocolate cake and hubs made yummy cappucinos!
It was a HUGE and great feast! Everyone seemed happy so that means I was happy!
I told SIL (who is 8 months preg) about my cysts and the fallopian tube and so maybe they will all stay off my case about the babies for a while! She was nice about it but also went on to tell me that her current hubby left his ex-wife b/c she couldn't have kids and he couldn't bear the thought of it just being the two of them forever....thanks SIL that really makes me feel great!
I don't take this too seriously though because another reason BIL left his ex (and this is what HE told us!) is b/c she "was getting a big ass" and "wanted to watch movies on Friday nights". He is an ass. Obviously. To emphasize how much of an ass, he also always tells my 8 month preg SIL to stop eating and leave room for the baby, tells her she's fat and that she better enjoy this preg while it lasts b/c the way she looks is unacceptable otherwise! What a f'n dick head eh!
I also found time this weekend to go and buy myself this dress to wear to a wedding in March. I was holding off getting a dress b/c I thought I might be lucky enough to be "fatter" come March! Not going to happen! So I figured if I can't be preg atleast I can look hot! The dress is super cute and fits me perfect.
Well, i'm off to bed! Have good dreams bloggies!
