10 Little Traganos Things

So E over at E Tells Tales does a weekly recap most Fridays (called Ten Little Ivie Things) and today she's made it into a link-up! So, I'm linking up! Here are 10 little Traganos things.

1. Meredith has been enjoying a new, fun activity in the evenings this week. Pretty awesome, huh?

2. Do you read Kelle Hampton? If not, you should. And also if not, you have to check out her North Pole party. It seemed like the most magical night for the little girls in attendance.

3. After seeing several Pinterest pictures of twinkle light Christmas cards, I gave it a try. I didn't get one I wanted to mail out, but I'm pretty happy with them still.

4. We ended up picking a family picture instead and ordered our pictures through Tiny Prints. They came yesterday and I'm so happy with them!

5. Is there anything cuter than a baby in cheetah pants with black flats? Doubt it.

6. We are having a date night tonight! First since the move. We have made some new friends here with a daughter with the exact same birthday as Meredith. We've decided to do a babysitting swap for date nights. So excited!

7. Did you read C. Jane's story of Erin Caroline's birth this week? OH.MY.GOODNESS. I don't think I'd feel comfortable enough, but at the same time, reading her story was like reading a dream I never knew I had come true.

8. This was a week for gift guides in blogging land. Here are a few of my favorites: Anna's and Joanna's.

9. My favorite meal this week was carnitas tacos. I used Smitten Kitchen's recipe. Easy (but a time committment) and so yummy.

10. I baked a couple times, too. My favorite? Homemade chocolate chip cookies, except instead of chocolate chips I added crushed peanut butter M&Ms (in Christmas colors!). I know! Delicious! Go bake some! Tollhouse chocolate chip bag recipe, duh. Chris said they were the best cookies he's ever had!!

LOVE this. What kind of toy is Meredith riding on? Me thinks Everett needs one of those bad boys.

Also, I read C.Jane's story and wanted that for myself too. One disappointment I had with my hospital birth was all the random people that came in right before he was born "just in case something bad happened."

@E, It's a push cart from Ikea! She LOVES it so much. But really, she loves anything she can push. She also has a Playskool Walk N Ride (since I'm guessing you aren't near an Ikea).

Anna {dear friend} said...

Love this!

1. Love the video, and the pics of Mere riding the push cart. Too funny.

2. Yes, found Kelle Hampton through your daily reads page and I can't get enough of her pictures and precious daughters. LOVE.

3. ADORE the twinkle lights pictures. !!

4. I'd like a tiny print, please and thank you. emailing you my address. :)

5. black cheetah pants? are you kidding me? so awesome.

6. Love how you guys are going on a date night! It's great you found another mom to do a swap with!

7. Read that story you linked to. Got my brains reeling in all sorts of ways. wow.

8. Thanks for linking to me! Appreciate it!

9. Tacos = delicious. And yours look incredible.

10. The Tollhouse recipe is my go-to. Never thought of changing it up with peanut butter M&Ms. How genius. Making these soon! Only I think I'll add reeses pieces because they're my fave!

Great post! Loved it! (And clearly had fun commenting!)
