*While I have forgotten most of our wedding gifts, this one I will never forget since I use it frequently. My friend, Chalet, put together a book of some favorite recipes I had eaten at her house throughout Jr. High and High School. Chalet is the one that first introduced me to gooey bars (they go by many different names), which I have probably made a thousand times. It is my go-to recipe when I bake for people. 

*The first thing I do when I walk in from work each day is pack the kids' lunch boxes for the following day. I find it's much easier to refrigerate the entire packed box so that I literally put it straight into their backpacks in the morning.

 I realized one of the things that takes me the longest is simply deciding what to pack. This week I wised up and made a plan for each day. I included what snack I would pack, as well as what lunch if needed (they usually stay for lunch 1-2 days per week). I need to do this more often!!

*Kendall came down tonight in his lovely P.J. ensemble. :)

*On Sunday we attended the baptism of Cam's good friend. It was at a home and was such an intimate, special time. Afterward they let the kids swim, which was a nice way to end the night! :)
