This morning, we had something extremely unusual occur in our house. We had to wake the twins up at 7:00 am. I can’t tell you the last time we woke them up in the morning–if ever. They are usually up by 6:00 or 6:30, if they even sleep that late. When we went in to wake them this morning, we found them snuggled up in the same bed together. It was so sweet that I had to take a photo before waking them.
After my post on Day 13, my cousin sent me a message asking what size pants I needed because she wears scrubs to work now and had some dress pants I could have! I love my cousin, and obviously she loves me because I received a box from her today with four pair of pants. How sweet is she! Of course, I can only fit into two pair, but I am determined to lose 10 pounds, so the others should fit soon enough.
- We had breakfast and lunch at home, except my husband had lunch at work and my awesome mother-in-law took the little girls to Chick-fil-a for lunch after she took them to a petting zoo.
- My mother-in-law also took the girls to Costco today and bought us some milk and chicken breasts for meals and fruit snacks for the little girls. (Have I mentioned how awesome she is?)
- I had to fill up my car with gas today, so I spent $31.57.
- This evening, we had baked potatoes with all sorts of toppings, including leftover bacon and pork tenderloin from dinners last week. I “baked” the potatoes in the crockpot for the first time because I had a teacher meeting this afternoon. They turned out really well. I just washed and scrubbed them well, dried them and poked holes in them, wrapped them in foil and put them in the crockpot on high for 4 hours. I read that you could alternatively cook them on low for 8 hours. It was super easy, and they were ready when I got home.
