Nog Scones

  • Let me take a second to complain.

Dear Rain,

You have ruined what was supposed to be an aWeSoMe winter break. I no longer can take Baby Boo for a walk,(which equals no exercise for mamma), driving anywhere is completely unsafe and crazy, (that’s also a jab at last minute shoppers), and your constantly going all night keeping me, and MORE importantly, baby boo awake.

I would also like to blame you for the sickness my hubby has which has him in bed sleeping all day, and therefore can’t play with Baby Boo and I.

So with that being said,

I hate your stinkin’ guts.

Sincerely,

Pissed off.

Moving on…

When mamma is cranky, mamma bakes.

I was only going to eat half since I had already had a pound of bark for breakfast, but I devoured the whole thing…

It almost made me forget about how pissed off I was at the stupid rain…until I saw this sunshiney yellow plate.
