Friday Photos: the view from here


Thursday afternoon this little guy showed up. (along with his mama, my mama, and his three brothers) Our apartment was alive. Two were crawling. Two were racing up to the attic, their new found secret hiding place — which turned out to be not-so-secret as we questioned the stability of the ceiling taking on their game of tag and dodgeball. 😉

We stayed up too late, ate more cookies than we should have, sang our ABCs at least 54 times, (it’s the soothing tune that will catch the bubbas’ attention in an instant and keep them calm) watched Uncle Mark entertain all four boys effortlessly while we secretly praised him from the kitchen for letting us girls sit down for coffee together, packed up the cars and headed to our GF Get Together celebration, played in the snow, welcomed a photographer from the Journal Sentinel for a photo shoot, and celebrated National Margarita Day in style — what.a.weekend. (hence Friday Photos showing up on Sunday — that will happen sometimes, you know this blog is real life)

Take a peek…

The Journal Sentinel is doing a piece on gluten-free living, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks with the media — and in case you missed my debut last week, check out the video on Fox 6. Stay tuned for more details on the article!

Our 3 Year Anniversary Gluten-Free Get Together Celebration was BIG FUN at Cocina DeLeon. Each year, Linda hosts us for a private event fiesta, turning the store into a “restaurant” for us — with an all you can eat buffet!

Friday was National Margarita Day — did you celebrate? You can get my only-four-ingredient margaritas right here.

We sure did. 🙂 Made a quick addition of frozen strawberries and blended them for some fruity fun.

My Mamasita is staying with me this week. (sadly, we had to say goodbye to my celiac sista, the bubbas, and the boys yesterday) She’s recovering from hand surgery, so I get to cook for her!

And she loves eggs too, (we think Mark is intolerant, so I’ve been eating them solo) I filled her up for breakfast.

We found these cute super scoopers yesterday, perfect for gluten-free friends.

We skipped the scoops and filled our bowls with deconstructed banana splits today — while we fed our addiction to Downton Abbey. Thought it would be fun to start watching with her on Netflix… after Season 1, we realized that was the only season on Netflix. 😦  But I think I’ve got us hooked up via Amazon Prime for free live streaming, so that’s our plan for tonight — with a bowl of Italian Chili, which I’ll be sharing with you this week.

Anyone else have a Downton Abbely addiction? Or is your vice banana splits?

Hope you had a JOYful weekend!
