When in Doubt...


Loaves 1-3 of 6

I'm making pumpkin chocolate chip bread for my classes tomorrow because

A) It's nice to be in a district that doesn't ban homemade food,
B) I want to celebrate my birthday somehow,
C) Baking is one of my favorite stress releasers, and
D) It's October and while I've been bookmarking things that pop up on my blogroll like this, this, and this, I compromised with something that I've made before and that is more reasonable time-wise.

And it is also delicious.

I am also excited about playing with this after school tomorrow:


I received it a month ago, and while I know exactly what's inside and while the givers, i.e. my parents, insisted that I could open the gift early; I am resolved to wait until my birthday proper to play with it. Having a birthday in the middle of the week in the middle of a month of speech meets doesn't allow for much celebrating, and I really wanted to make sure I had something to look forward to tomorrow.

And I am very much looking forward to playing with what's inside that box!

    Happy Birthday!!!

  2. Is having dinner with Ben and Rachel not something to look forward to? Maybe you forgot that we wanted to do that... well, we do!
