There once was a comedy wife,
Who lived a very fine life,
Though she was well-loved,
She lamented because,
She wished she had wed Ryan White
Pay-It-Forward 2013 #2
So here is my second creation for the “pay-it-forward” adventure. I made this Max Pacioretty pillow-thingy for my homeboy, and fellow Habs fan, Scott.
I stuck to the “lucky charm” theme and tried to give him a little extra magical awesomeness. We’ll see if it’s working during the game tonight.
I took a photo with a baby for scale. The girls liked him, so I might have to make some for them too.
And I got my “pay-it-forward” surprise from Katie! She made us a wicked awesome lasagna that had secret tofu in it. I should have guessed because vegans are always into that sort of trickery, but I didn’t even notice! I only found out at our playdate today, and I felt a little betrayed but mostly impressed.
It’s V-day today, so I need to go pretty myself up for date night with the hubby! So excited! We’re going to Bice which randomly changed it’s name to Beatrice. What’s up with that? Super weird.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
I decided to hop on board the “Pay-It-Forward” train that’s been roaming around Facebook. My first taker was a friend of my bro’s, Liam. I’ve been waiting for him to receive his gifty before blogging it because I didn’t want to ruin the surprise.
Liam and I met during a poker game, so I made him a little poker idol. Hopefully it will help throw the odds in his favour (but not if he is playing with me, of course!).
His name is Brobro McDonk, and his lucky little secret is that he has a horseshoe up his arse. Actually, he keeps a few up there because you can never be too lucky!
I hope he brings Liam all the luck in the world!
One down.. four more to go: Cone, Chisling, Vernon and Heidi!
And of course, I’m anxiously awaiting my super-amazing, extra-special surprise from Katie, the one who got me into this mess in the first place. ;)
Outrageous Coconut-Cream Meringue Cake
Check out this ridiculous looking cake I made yesterday! Despite being kinda weird looking, it was really good. Pretty labour intensive, but I would say worth it.
Recipe here: http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/outrageous-coconut-cream-meringue-cake.aspx
I took a big chunk out and sent the rest to work with Ryan, since eating this entire cake myself would be a bad idea.
I’m trying to figure out which cakes to make for the girls upcoming FIRST EVER birthday party. I feel like they each should have a cake of their own - and, for varieties sake, I’d like to make two different kinds. I’m worried about how I’ll have the time for it, though. I’d like to make them from scratch and not have to resort to the box… We’ll see.
I’m pretty much stressing about the party in general, but that should probably be a blog post unto itself. I haven’t been posting enough. My friend Alli just started a blog (read it here: http://thisbusymom.tumblr.com) and she is definitely being a better mommy-blogger than me. It’s making me jealous. Also, Laura deleted her blog (the one that inspired this blog!) and that makes my heart sad. She’s such a loose cannon.
Anyway, maybe after the girls go to bed tonight, I’ll have time to write some more - fill you in on birthday party madness.
