Holy moly, it’s been a weekend for the record books. Between work, house adventures, family, surgery, friends and appointments, I’m ready for a calming Sunday. I’ll dive into all the details of our adventures once the dust settles around here a bit but the Red Head is on the mend and that’s all that matters. While I go swap his ice pack and gather his next round of pain pills (fun!), enjoy these links from around the web.
This date has been circled on the Erickson calendar for far too long. Early this morning the Red Head had some much needed shoulder surgery. Send good vibes for a speedy recovery, patience for me (my mom is the nurse, not me!) and some cooperative wi-fi because we’ve got plenty of Netflix to keep us busy. Catch you Sunday!

IDEA ALERT! Use those semi-awkward mail cubbies in your kitchen to store dry ingredients you use most often. Of course, my containers would be heavy on the chocolate chips and less on the dry beans side of things. To each their own!

The Snickers. Oh, the Snickers. Last night, if I had to estimate, I stole about 7 of those little buggers out of my nephew’s trick-or-treat loot. That is not OK behavior but at least he’s young enough to let this transgression go unnoticed and unpunished. The older nephew, though, not so much. He counted his candy piece by piece and proudly hauled that stash from door to door. I’m thankful for that, though, because without his eagle eye the Snickers count would have continued to climb! I’ve abstained from the Snickers today and I’m off to the gym to try and work a few off. Enjoy these links from around the web while I do!
Halloween is upon us! I’ve got a four special visitors on their way right now, Cole is done with his licensing exam and I am so, so excited… and ready for a cocktail. Here’s to a couple of spooky days unwinding with family and friends. We’ve all earned it!
