What are you up to this weekend? We’re going to our friends’ house for pizza tonight, and Alex and I watched the Godfather this week—I forgot how good it was! Also my mom gave Toby this apron and now he’s totally inspired, so I’ve been teaching him how to crack eggs, slice bananas and stir oatmeal:) Hope you have a great weekend, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
