Super Seeing Powers

  Look what I got today!  Look like Ugg Slippers, FEEL like Ugg slippers, totally NOT Ugg slippers!  I got them at Target!  They are SO comfy and they are dead ringers for my old pair of Ugg slippers (who wants to pay $100+ for a pair of SLIPPERS?! Ok, besides a college student riding on the gravy train! LOL). 
DSC_2177Here’s the side view.  These are the Chandra Scuff Slippers, by the way.   DSC_2178Inside – nice and cozy!  Be jelly!  I’m not takin’ these off all winter long! DSC_2179Avery woke up a little cranky from her nap today.  I was doing my best to try and cheer her up.  She wanted nothing to do with this photoshoot. DSC_2182She did, however, want to see herself in the picture after each picture was taken.  A little something she picked up from her brother.  She’d say her name and point to herself each time.

So angry!   DSC_2185

I will NOT smile.   DSC_2187 DSC_2188I invited Dylan to come join us.  Thought maybe he held the key to Avery’s smile.  Apparently not.  She had just finished screaming at him for sitting next to her on the couch.  I should have known she was still “in a mood.”   DSC_2189

Things perked up (for me, anyway!) around dinner when this tasty dish came out of the oven.  Gotta hand it to Miss OSG Angela for another wonderful dish!  This is the Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chickpea Salad.   DSC_2191

It was DELISH.  We had an extra yam (yam, sweet potato – same diff!) from earlier in the week so I was quite pleased to come across this recipe today.  Love that it was only a few ingredients! DSC_2192

Notice the little hand coming into the frame.  Someone was ready to “eat, eat, eat.” DSC_2193

Her brother, on the other hand, was not.  He took one look at it and said he wasn’t eating it.  So off we went on another discussion about why he needs vegetables in his diet.  “Well, what does a sweet potato do anyway?”  “It helps your eyes to see better.”  This worked because then he was convinced that his eyes were getting bigger and better with each piece he ate.  Soon, he declared himself a SuperHero with Super Seeing Powers.  Whatever works, kid.  Only problem is that now he thinks that sweet potatoes can make people with bad eyes see better.  He decided that on Monday, he’s going to tell his friend Evan at school (Evan wears glasses) that all he has to do is eat a sweet potato and he’s good to go.  Thinking


Well, that’s it from us!  What are YOU up to tonight?
