Day #7

A Week in the Life of the Paper Poppy


Thank you everyone for following me through a week in my life
I have come to the conclusion that my life is a bit boring!
But I wouldn't change it for the world

Ashton, Alex & Claudia

Ashton, Kevin (Kazan's husband) Eric (my husband)

✸ Woke up at 9:00 to my laptop brought to me and fresh coffee, Thanks Eric!

✸ Bummed around the house until 11:00 

✸ Took a shower

✸ Eric & Kevin met to play golf 

✸ I took Claudia to the club to practice her golf game

✸ Claudia and I had brunch at the club

✸ Off to practice in the freezing cold, brrrr

✸ Stopped by the grocery store on the way home

✸ Kevin, Kazan & the girls are coming over for dinner

✸ Had turkey tacos for dinner

✸ The girls played

✸ The boys watched golf and had a few beers

✸ Kazan and I chatted and had wine

✸ For dessert we had Dutch Apple Pie. Kazan insisted that I try it with sharp cheddar cheese! 
I think it's a english thing. After a lot of begging and pleading, I tried it! It wasn't bad...If vanilla ice cream was in short supply, I might, consider eating my apple pie this way;)

✸ The Clarks headed for home after a lovely evening 

✸ Eric helped me clean the kitchen

✸ Wrote my post for 2S4Y and this one too!

✸ In bed by 10:00pm, Gym in the morning

Mmmmm.....Dutch apple pie....I love it!! To be honest I would never eat it with Cheddar cheese. Dutch apple pie combines best with whipped cream. That's so yummy!!
