A Burnt Supper Day

Tonight, I burnt the supper. I was getting crazy with throwing something together and got distracted and burned it to pieces. Our whole house smelled like burned food and my eyes were tearing up from the smoke. Addi was exhausted and was only wanting to be held and I was at one of those "overwhelmed" points. It had been a long LONG day and Addi had thrown a major fit while we were having lunch with our friends, Sara and Lola (more on that in a sec) and it just really rattled me. She is definitely coming into the toddler stage of throwing a fit now when she wants to do something! Anyways, so I was incredibly stressed with hurt feelings over having just burned our dinner. Josh was my hero tonight when he went and got Olive Garden take out for dinner, put Addi to bed and made me sit still on the couch and relax and watch our Thursday night shows. My revelation in all this, is we all have "burnt supper" days and sometimes we just need to sit on the couch and watch the Office. Ha ha!

So today, we went to the Wonder Place with our playgroup! Addi had a great time! Sara and Lola came and met us too!

I decided to break out some of Addi's Halloween outfits. This is one that Fran made. I think it's so cute!

After playing for awhile, we went with Sara and Lola to Panera Bread for some lunch. I just have to say, Lola is such a sweetie. She stayed in her highchair the entire time was just so pleasant! Addi on the other hand, was acting like I was pinching her the whole time! She really wanted to get down and crawl around and go outside, but it was quite warm and I had dressed us for fall weather not thinking, oh it's going to be 90 degrees this afternoon, so I didn't want to melt. Anyways, Addi just cried and threw a fit pretty much the whole lunch. This is the first time this has happened and it really shook me up! I was pretty embarrassed! I'm sorry Sara that we didn't get to talk much!!! Haha! When we got home, Addi took a good nap for me thank goodness! When she woke up we went outside and sat on the swing, and Addi pointed to things and asked what they were. I do have to brag on her for a little bit. Two days ago, we were sitting on the swing and our neighbor left. As her car pulled away, Addi waved and said bye. Well this morning and this afternoon, Addi has looked over at the neighbor's house and waved and said bye! She remembers!!! I thought that was so crazy!!! Haha!

I hope y'all had a great day!

  1. No worries Ashley! haha I have been there on more than once occasion! I love that about children! I'm sorry Addie was stuck to the hip and you burnt dinner. I have done that, but the sad thing is I was paying attention it's just my cooking skills aren't quite there yet. I just need my someone to tell me if I'm cooking pork chops long enough and when chicken is past the point of "dangerous" but not cooked passed the point of no return.... I'm so getting there and one of these days I will feature my great dishes and look to meet Paula Dean too! (haha in my dreams I know) Well I did have fun with you all! Thanks for inviting me and I am already looking forward to the next visit! Have a great Friday! Yea its friday!
