My Husband the Baker (and ‘class favorite’)
merry christmas eve!!!! we have a house full of dogs and boxes! we leave in 2 days (eeeeeek) to move back to portland so i’m shuffling between skipping around singing christmas songs and trying to throw all of our things into boxes! that’s my mother-in-law with her cute new haircut, that’s what i look like after i run (greasy and sweaty) and my sister-in-law ashley with some cute puppies!
about a week ago while we were still on the road, my husband got a hankering to bake a pie-specifically a pie that had a lattice topping to it. he texted his mom and because she’s such a great woman she went out and got all the ingredients for him when we walked in the door!
this was the very first time he’s ever baked a pie (i’m typically the baker and he’s the cook) but lucky for him he had 3 women politely suggesting different ways to do things. ha! that’s Farah-essentially his other mama when he was growing up and she stopped by!
he baked a delicious apple pie, all while supporting our alma mater in his fashionable apron.
i also found this little number when we were cleaning out drawers: my husband was not only nominated but won “class favorite” in high school! this feels like an absurd category to me, did other people’s high schools have this category?! i feel like “favorite” is such a bizarre thing. please also note he was also “mr. spirit.”
i’m probably still bitter i didn’t get first place for funniest in my high school. bitter.
oh and here are my beautiful hand-painted nesting dolls from Russia that my fantastic in-laws got me!!! i stare at them for about 7 minutes each time i walk by them! these will definitely be out on december 1 every single year to follow!
the new wifestyle: appreciate the time and treats with family!
1) any sentimental “must-have” decorations that go up for the holidays around your home?
2) were you nominated for any categories in high school?
3) what’s on tap for you today and tomorrow?
