Hi friends! I am currently in the middle of a trial and so my life is CRAZY right now! Add that on top of Forrest's new practice opening, and you have a recipe for some tired Baileys. Here is a quick look at what we've been up to this week:

VOTING for Miss USA!
Yesterday, the Miss Universe website opened up voting for the next Miss USA. The contestant with the most votes will earn themselves a spot in the top 16!!

The weather has been SO nice lately, that I've been opening the windows for a while in the evenings once Forrest gets home. Brownie took advantage!!

I made this turkey sausage ratatouille on Monday night--one of my favorite dishes! It is chocked full of veggies and good stuff! I hadn't really cooked in a while and it felt great to get back in the kitchen!
