It’s not easy bein’…

Square Piece got a little wild this weekend.  And by “wild,” you know that I mean just the opposite, right?

Let’s face it.  I’m a homebody.

So what pried me away from Bennett and Brian on Saturday?

  • Happy hour
  • Step aerobics
  • A class on cheese making

If you guessed the cheese one, you know me all too well!

So, yes, on Saturday, my friend, Bree, and I ventured into the terrifying traffic patterns of D.C. to redeem our Living Social vouchers.  Within minutes, we were carefully concocting our very first batch of ricotta cheese.  (It didn’t hurt that we got to taste our cheese with crustini, fig preserves and prosciutto!)

Man, I love to learn!

    I would love as well. Bought fig preserves last weekend. So good with goat cheese brie!

    Glad you are taking some time to yourself. Just to
    fulfill your needs. So important.
