Lets play catch up. This week Pete, Mikayla and I had off from work/school, and boy-oh-boy has it been super busy! The week has been full of errands and family and friends and fun family things! First thing: My SIL Mary and her daughter Hanna were in town, so all of the kids (and Sue) went Rollerskating. I, of course, sat on the sidelines and didn't lace up... boo. It was Mikaylas first time rollerskating, which was super cute to see!

Pete and I both ordered chicken fajitas for our main meal. They were yummy, I never order chicken except during this pregnancy. Anyway, you cant go wrong with make your own fajitas.
Dessert was amazing. It was Caramel apple cheesecake: An old fashion cheesecake in a buttery graham cracker crust, topped with cinnamon apples, walnuts & caramel. Honestly, it was SO AMAZING! Unfortunately, we had to split it between the 3 of us, and Pete wouldn't ask the waitress for a dressed-up-cheesecake to go.
I also finally met my friend Amanda one morning for breakfast in Saratoga. She told me she knew a spot where they made the best pancakes, the Country Corner Cafe. Now, yes, okay, sometimes I enjoy a pancake, but I will never order them...ever. If I want to order something to drown in syrup I'm more of a french-toast type of gal. Usually, I enjoy omelette's in the morning. Anyway, once the waitress told me the pancake specials, I just knew I had to order them. Amanda ordered the apple cinnamon, I ordered the Banana Pecan, and Pete ordered the Cranberry Walnut. SO SO SO SO SO AMAZING. Hands down the best pancakes I have ever had, ever!
Mikayla really wanted to help pick things out for the baby, which was just so darn cute! I let her walk around and zap things with the gun... and she kept asking her baby brother questions and putting her ear up to my belly to "hear" the answer, then she would tell me what he "said". I love kids.
Then, one night we made pizza (shocker) (we probably ate pizza 87 times this week). The first pizza was shrimp, jalapeno, and olive. We pre-baked the crust for 10 mins as usual, then added the toppings.
I put jalapenos on half, and fresh cheese on my half, Monterey jack on the other half. Variety is the spice of life.
