These are the muffins I made this morning. These are the muffins of which I ate 2 (TWO) this morning. These are the muffins I will make again this weekend, after I go to the store and buy another jar of marmalade. Chocolate is much better than muffins, but right now the muffins are winning.
Thank you for your evil influences, Pioneer Woman.

This Easter was a fun one, having the kiddo along and all! We didn't hide eggs or baskets, but we did have brunch with some birth class friends. It was fun to watch the babies climb over each other.
This Easter was also special because Adelaide received several cards (with cash!) and packages: books, stuffed bunnies, toys. You guys are too thoughtful!
We're also going outside a LOT nowadays. It has been pretty beautiful out.

I took some time last month to measure out our front lawn and sketch up a to scale depiction of the garden space we're digging out right now (although somehow the actual garden looks like it won't fit all that stuff on the layout).
Can ya read all that scribble (Actually, if you click on the image it comes up crystal clear in a new window.) I'm going for shades of yellow, chartreuse, and orange, infused with a healthy dose of purple. I want mostly perennials and evergreens. The house is 'margarita green,' according to our lush neighbors, and the mailbox, house numbers, and planter are copper. The space gets strong afternoon sun (6-7 hrs), so I'm going for drought-tolerant plants. Any suggestions for the gap?
PS - Anybody visited the Amazon(d0t)com apparel shop yet?

Then April came. The weather has been wonderful, so we've invested in some baby sunblock (the cheap stuff, not the $25 bottle. Yes, really.) and went outside. Between breaks digging dirt, rocks, and sticks out of Adelaide's mouth, we've managed to also dig out a portion of the front lawn with plans to create curb appeal. I don't think I can get it done without Mr. P's help; his forearms are animalistic.
Meanwhile, Adelaide is nearing 11 months and has recently mastered the game of Peek-a-Boo. So apologetically, we have more baby movie to share with you. Ahem.
