Ashlyn went to visit my parents for the weekend. We took full advantage of not having a toddler running around the house yesterday and cleaned out our laundry room, linen closet, master bedroom closet and bathroom.
In between nursing my baby, I also cooked. Like a madwoman on a mission. I now have 14 meals in our freezer - all kinds of yummy Rachel Ray recipes. To be honest, I can't remember the last time I have chopped fresh garlic and cilantro. It felt so nice to actually cook with real spices and seasonings. I even watched a YouTube video to figure out how to deglaze a pan. Don't you love the internet?
Meanwhile, my husband played dress up with Chase. Gamecock football kicks off next Saturday, and Christopher needed to make sure that his son had adequate attire. Dress up day with Daddy. While I was sweating it out in the kitchen. He pulled out all the stops - and I laughed so hard my stomach hurt.
Like me, you may be wondering if the toboggan is a necessary part of the outfit? It is August in South Carolina. But if you know the Newman clan, you know that no detail is spared when it comes to USC football. My poor son. Sorry little guy. This was all your Daddy's doing.
