Right Now I'm Loving...

This Baked Potato Soup I made last night. It was so delicious and super easy too. I thought it was a bit thin so I added another large potato. Next time I might try to add more cauliflower. I had the leftover for lunch and dinner so it's pretty safe to say this recipe is definitely a keeper!

All of the fun things my sweet girl is doing these days. She has become pretty independent recently and so...big. Yesterday I sat back and watched her as she stood up and dug through her toy basket. It's crazy to see her leaving the baby stage and heading for toddlerhood.

Today when she woke up from her nap she noticed her hippo from Mimi up on the shelf and wanted it down. She spent the next 20 minutes examining it.

And then it was time to show off more of her recently acquired skills:

I love every little thing about her!
I've met some really sweet people over the last few weeks and gotten to know some of my awesome neighbors a little bit better. It started happening literally the day after my post about being lonely. It just goes to show that God is listening and he really does answer prayers!

It's time for the weekend and we don't have any plans! Jesse has been busy with an inspection this week so it's been just E and me most nights. We're looking forward to just hanging out together and relaxing all weekend long.

The potato soup looks so good! I made a crock pot potato soup a few weeks ago, but yours looks so much better! E is too cute with her new skills!

The soup looks wonderful. E is definitely in the toddler stage. She is such a big girl. Mimi has to get busy and embroider her some more clothes. Have a fun weekend. Sorry I missed your call. I had a horrible headache and stayed in bed until 10:30. Wind is blowing not helping my sinus headache. Love you
