Bennett went to the dentist for the first time last week.
This was the coolest dentist office I've ever seen and everyone was so nice which helped a lot.
In the waiting room, I was happy to see that he chose low tech over high tech toys:
I was also happy to find this in the mail:
(it's going to save us $120 on our new/fancy/crazy expensive double stroller!)
I was reading Bennett a book when he said "I'll be right back", 
then he ran into his room and came out like this:
(then he proceded to clean his ears and every time he would look at the q tip he'd say "eww"...haha)
Thursday was a random snow day.
We got about 3 or 4 inches!

Scout was jealous that he couldn't go play in it:
(his breed is a "Snowshoe" so it's in his blood right?)
then we warmed up with some mac 'n cheese:
(organic Annie's topped with ketchup of course)
in the afternoon I made these dark chocolate toffee cookies with sea salt:
(I normally like fluffy, soft cookies and these were more on the flat, chewy side but were still really good...
I've never met a cookie I didn't like!)
for dinner I made these quinoa veggie mexi bowls:
(super good, though I just used what I had)
B drew a picture of a boat:
spotted dragon fruit while we were out grocery shopping on Friday:
(how pretty are they?)
B got his strawberry milk when we were done for being a great little shopper:
(bribery works people!)
this conversation took place:
For date night Chris and I went to see Hunger Games just to see what all the hype was about. Neither of us knew anything about the books other than people were crazy for them. Apparently it's a "teen flick" and it had just opened the night before. We were lucky to even get tickets. I'll say that it wasn't a bad movie, but a very strange plot for kids to be getting so excited over (killing eachother? really?). 
Am I missing something?

Sunday, Chris played at church and we also started taking down some doors to 
paint them and put on the new hardware:
(B's fort = makeshift sawhorse)
B and I went over to play with Lauren and Fern.
He pretty much loves her:
Our little playdate ended with some delicious froyo at Yogurtland:
and B played keys at church Sunday night:
(no big deal)
and here is a little nursery progress:
(I just kind of threw this together, but I like it!)

and that is your weekend in review on a monday.
(I'm off to do a little painting and some walking to get this little man to stay head down darnit!)

    You got it in on a Monday, congrats :)

    We got our 20% off REI coupon and our dividend (Over $400!). Jeremy spent one night in bed telling me everything he wanted to buy. I just wanted to go to sleep!
