Happy New Year Everyone! I have the best son in the world; he let me sleep until 9:00am! Thankfully my sister Kelsey was here to help me through the day. I was able to get a good bit accomplished. I gave Mr. Ripken a bath and might I say he is the cutest little polar bear ever! I also received a dutch oven from my aunt for Christmas so, I decided to break it out and make a pot roast with carrots and potatoes. Considering the first few years of my marriage we ate either take out, mac n cheese or hot pockets... this was a monumental advancement in my culinary skills. It was quite yummy if I do say so myself. All together successful day!
