So here is a wrap-up of stuff since last Friday. Little Sis and I did this:
This is Little Sis's go-to TV show. I never realized how many of her strange sayings and behaviors are coming from Bessie Higgenbottom. That said, I love that she prefers Bessie to Disney Princesses. I'm nervous that Netflix might not renew their contract with Viacom. We'd miss The Mighty B around here. (Amy Poehler rocks! I hope this is still around in a few years for Big Sis.)'
EDIT: Since I wrote this post, Netflix discontinued their arrangement with Viacom, which owns Nick. Now we watch The Mighty B! on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
We're reading this at bedtime right now:

I'm still collecting mac and cheese recipes for a future post. But I have a confession: I keep forgetting to photograph the ones we try. I have a definite leader, though. And since I've made it three or four times already, it's pretty sad I forget to snap a stupid picture.
Tomorrow is May the Fourth, which is a very punny "holiday." By the time I was Little Sis's age, I had seen all three of the original Star Wars movies in the theatres, and we owned the first two on Selectavision CEDs. I raced back to the theaters my sophomore of college to see the special edition re-releases, and while they were disappointing, I did see all three prequels in the theater. (Multiple times for episodes 2 and 3.) But my daughters? They refuse to watch Star Wars anything. It's driving me crazy. Mr. B and I insist we will have a marathon viewing of the original trilogy this summer. Anyway, if you have the time to celebrate May the Fourth, here is a Pinterest board of mine full of inspiration. And May the Fourth be with you!
And this is stuck in my head right now:

And I hope you fit in more books than I probably will this weekend. Merry Weekend! Happy Reading!
