World's Best Grilled Cheese Sandwhich
Markus had Monday off work from working late on projects the week before. When I came home for lunch on Monday he made me this incedible GC. Rudi's Multigrain gluten-free bread with some Earth Balance soy-free butter alternative, and Roma tomato between two slices of Horizon organic American cheese. Love this with a side of mashed avocado mixed with some Himalayan sea salt for dipping. Made for a great start to the week!
The Incredible Easter Basket
Since Markus and I do not have babies of our own and we have not one niece or nephew between us yet, we love to get our "kidd stuff" fix by adopting Christmas Angels or doing other shopping projects for children's charities. One of my favorite Dallas charities, Community Partners of Dallas, did an Easter basket drive. The baskets were then distributed to Dallas Child Protective Services case workers to pass out to children. We did a basket for a 13-18 yr old girl and it was SO fun to be able to go crazy on Easter goodies that I knew would not be sitting around my own house staring at me later. This is definitely a new tradition in our family! Like Community Partners of Dallas on Facebook to see all of the incredible baskets they collected and visit their website to learn more about their amazing programs for children!
Celebrity Sighting: John Ralphio
I am not one to use my smartphone to take and share photos of people I do not know (Dallas is too small a town and I have too bad a memory for that). I did have to break my own rule this week when I was at a stoplight by my house and spotted THE John Ralphio chillaxing in his car next to me! I knew Markus would never believe me that I got to basically hang out with J.R. for a full 60 seconds this week.
In case you need an update on the celebrity and swagger of the John Ralphio, below are some of his greatest moments on Parks and Recreation.
One Tiny Chair - Accompanied with Mass Amounts of Pressure
|A little dusty for now but hopefully in use soon.|
Probably something my mother also says re: my reproductive system.
Just kidding about the pressure. But I had lunch with my godmother this week and she gave me this hand-wrought iron chair that was in her son's nursery...since, you know, I am the next lady to have a nursery in her home. So precious and perfect for a future young prince.
My ovaries hurt.
What were you up to this week?
Do you ever look back through your iPhone albums after a hectic week to try to rememeber what it is you actually did?
