Every Beebs Is Working For The Weekend

I am now 5 days P.V. (post vacation), and it is still amazingly hard to get going in the mornings. It took me zero time to adjust to sleeping till 9am, but lord help me if I need to get up at 6:30 am. Not to mention getting the hubby out of bed is like asking politicians to agree on a national budget. Bah-dum tishhhhh! I just need to keep up with my 6:30 am wake up call through the weekend. Maybe that will trick my body into setting itself back to rights. That is my plan any way, I'm not saying I might accidentally slip and turn off my alarm and sleep in. Don't judge me!

I see you judging me!!

So occasionally, I get the cooking bug. I didn't have it AT ALL while on vacation. Which is odd. Possibly because we didn't have schedules. Like I said before, we ate and ate and ate and ate and, well you get the point. But we had junk food for miles, and are still fighting the leftovers we have. (The trashcan is only so big!) So I have decided that I need to make cupcakes. Specifically lemon cupcakes. Even more specifically homemade from scratch lemon cupcakes with lemon/cream cheese frosting. I swear I amaze myself with my randomness sometimes. Why just last night I turned my kitchen into a mexican restaurant and made some kick-butt carne guisada plates. What was initially planned for our family that was here was intercepted more than a few times. So the hubby and our on again off again (currently on again) boarder feasted like kings.


So yes, we have my youngest bro-in law staying with us again.  It is always an adventure to have someone staying with us. Not that it bothers either of us, but life is different when you share your common spaces with someone other than yourselves. The spontaneity of togetherness as a couple (if you know what I mean, wink-wink smile) either becomes very creative or non existent. Also, you are unable to hang out in your underoos. Which isn't such an issue, but come on, there are days you just don't want to put pants on! Am I right?! Well, out of love for our boarder, I will not do that. But there are other things like, having someone we have to behave around. Less temper-tantrums are thrown when there is a 3rd party within shouting / door slamming distance. Which is pretty much a moot point because the hubby and I are getting along quite fine these days. Adjusting dinners is a little hard, but my plan is to cook for my normal 2 people, and make sure the boys get the majority. What an inventive way to lose some of this vacation flab right?

Any who, the weekend is here. I am ready to enjoy it. Got a friend coming for dinner and drinks tonight, tomorrow is swimming pool and bbq, and Sunday Beebs is taking me to see Harry Potter and then to a late lunch. He doesn't know about it yet, but I think we both deserve a date. Wish me luck on my cupcakes, and eminent sunburn!
