Hello, friends. I am entering a new decade tomorrow. The big 3-0. Gulp. But hey, 30 is the new 20, right?
To start the "30" celebration a little early, we had dessert for dinner last night - My Granny's Chocolate Cobbler. Ummm...it was deliciousness in a bowl topped with vanilla ice cream. Ashlyn would describe it with her favorite expression "OHHHH MY!" In fact, she may have said it a few times after licking the batter spoon (don't worry Mom - there are no raw eggs in the recipe).
You should make it. It is easy and wonderful. I have no baking skills at all and it still turned out yummy.
Christopher took Ashlyn to the zoo Saturday morning with the Hong's while Chase and I relaxed at home. What a guy. He loves spending time with his little girl.
We also went to Lowes yesterday, and I spotted a rug in the clearance section. It was super cute - so naturally I was trying to figure out why a 5 x 8 rug was marked down to $34. While I was inspecting it, a sales person came up to me and told me I could have it for $15.
$15! What?!?! SOLD.
He made me feel like I was doing him a favor by taking it off his hands. Maybe he knew my birthday was tomorrow. Or that I have been looking for an entryway rug since we moved in this house over a year and a half ago. Whatever the reason, I was happy to take it out of the store.
Happy Birthday to Anne.
Hope your weekend has been wonderful. I wonder if I will wake up feeling extra old tomorrow?
