Banana Nut Muffins and First Day of School!

August 13, 2015

First of all, I can’t believe we’ve gone from this:


…to this, in just a year:


Gah!  It’s funny—I feel like I’ve been way more emotional about Lila going to school *this* year than I ever was last year.  I blame the pregnancy hormones.  There’s been a little bit of this from me, these days:

…and a lot of this, on Ryan’s end:

Anyway.  She just seems so much more grown-up to me these days…I guess since I’m spending more time thinking about what it will be like to have a baby in the house again.  It doesn’t help that she has an adorably, ridiculously huge backpack this year:


So.  Grownup.

Other than that, we’ve been packing, packing, packing, and visiting the new house, where painting is afoot:


Eek!  Moving on Saturday, and I really can’t wait.  I’m so ready to get in the house and unpack.  Is it weird that I really like doing that?  I just love the feeling of getting everything settled. 

Meals have been quick and easy…tacos:


…etc.  Anything that we can throw together in fifteen minutes, basically.  But, Lila and I *did* do a little baking this afternoon, in an attempt to use up some bananas that were on their way out.  We used this banana muffin recipe, subbing oil for the butter (all we had) and adding walnuts and almonds (use up the pantry!).  They turned out really tasty!


Even Baxter wanted in on the action. 

Happy Thursday—glad tomorrow is Friday, even though I am spending literally the whole day in meetings.

    ahhahaha- that last gif is amazing. That is exactly how I feel both when giving and listening to powerpoint presentations. She has grown up so much. Sometime I look at pictures of Kaylin in disbelief….there is no way that’s my kid!
