Today I Am - March Edition

Is it really March already? Yikes. We woke up this morning to 5-ish inches of snow, according to the weather guy. Our first snow and it happens in March. Tennessee is so weird.

Today I Am:

Reading: All about Raised Bed Gardening. I don't have the space for a huge big garden, but I definitely have room for 2 4' x 8' raised beds. Loving it. I have been spending lots of happy hours browsing through Johnny's Seed Catalog. I am envisioning cucumber and pumpkin plants.

Listening to: Adele - Make You Feel My Love. I heard this version of the song while catching up on episodes of Lipstick Jungle on Love, love, love it.

Obsessed With: Brothers and Sisters. I don't watch a lot of television, but when I have lots of scrapbooking to do I watch episodes of shows that I have never seen before online. I had never seen Brothers and Sisters before and I am now addicted!

Thinking About: Breuklyn. Worrying about Breuklyn would be more accurate. I am ready for the school year to be done. Hopefully first grade will be better than Kindergarten.

Planning To: Read through My Cookie Bible and try out a few new recipes. I made these Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies on Friday and they are to die for. They are basically an inside-out carrot cake. Delish. (Recipe coming soon, hee hee!!)

Dreaming Of: Birthday cake. March begins the run of birthdays at our house. My birthday is March 8th and then Paizlee's is March 15th. Carolyn and Breuklyn have April birthdays, so I am envisioning lots and lots of cake. Is it bad that I am going to make my own cake? Want a hint as to what it will look like? It will be covered in chocolate buttons! You're not surprised, are you?

Enjoying: Having a friend whose children are the same age as mine. Rebecca watches my kids once a week and I watch her kids once a week. It is bliss to be able to volunteer or run to the grocery store without stressing over my in-laws "watching" my kids. Plus, there is the added bonus of gossiping with Rebecca. It's a win-win situation.

Vowing To: Stop drinking so much diet Pepsi. I swear. My kidneys are going to revolt.

Working On: Magnetic fishing poles. My mom made them for us when we were kids and we always had a lot of fun "fishing" for the fish that had paper clips attached to make them magnetic. I think that they would make a fun alphabet game for the kids.

Excited About: CAROLYN WILL BE HERE IN 19 DAYS!!! Um, yeah, I'm a little excited.

What are you up to???

I should also do a today I am - mostly the march edition because March is also my birth month. I can't believe on Weds I'll be that much closer to 50 YIKES!!

Those cookies look yummy. I made a carrot cheesecake this weekend. It's in Better Homes and Gardens this month. OH and chocolate buttons - how fun!

Isn't fun to have something to count down to? I'm sure you'll have a lot of catching up to do with Carolyn and I'm sure your kiddos will be excited too!

MMM, those cookie sandwiches look good! And if they're carrot, that means they're healthy, right?
