{This 'n That}

with Jena & Katie

My friends Carla and Jordan [finally] had their second little bundle last week. I say finally cause the poor girl is always late. Troy Andreas came 11 days late but is beyond perfect.
I mean - if this photo isn't the cutest thing you see today then you are seeing some ridiculously cute stuff!
I am so excited to cuddle him and see big sister Laurel on Saturday.
{Troy is Jordan's middle name, Andreas is Carla's Dad name}
Both of Carla's kids have her beautiful eyes. Lucky kids.

I am officially obsessed with Kale Chips.
They are delicious and nutritious. I had them once when a co-worker made them and then once at Christmas when our friend Rock made them and loved them so I finally remembered to buy some kale.
And kale is so cheap!
All I did was cut the kale up (next time I will cut it into "chip" size bites).
Massage it with extra virgin olive oil so it is lightly covered. Then I seasoned it with pepper and sea salt. 
(Rock used Hy's seasoning salt and it was delicious too!)
Then I baked it at 350 for 10 minutes, flipped it and baked it 6 more minutes.
Then I ate it all.

We watched 2 new shows this week.
The premiere of The Following - it was SO good. I cannot wait for the next episode!
 And we watched the first episode of season 1 of Shameless. It was good, a little strange, I need to see more.

The end. Can I get an amen that tomorrow is Friday!?

What a sweet lite boy! Precious photo of brother and sister.

I made kale chips once before and I think I burned them? I just remember it not working out. I'll try them again. I made tortilla chips the other week and they sort of turned out! The recipe said to bake them for 8 minutes then flip- that was wayyyyy too long so the first batch was a tad crispy- aka garbage!

Gorgeous kiddos! I've made kale chips once and wasn't too into them. I'll have to give it another try. I watched the following premiere also and thought it was crazy! Can't even imagine that sort of thing happening, but it does. I'm actually looking forward to watching the show!
