Sausage, Apple and Salami Flatbread

Sausage, Apple and Salami Flatbread | simplerootswellness.comSo there is a new revelation happenin’ in these parts. I finished a grad school assignment three days, count it three, before it was officially due. Is it i possible that I could be getting my life in control? Probably not, ->SIGH<- but it does mean I get to enjoy the weekend just a tid bit more. Plus we actually have plans for the weekend. I won’t spoil it for you but hopefully it goes better than the apple orchard incident earlier this year. Prayers would be appreciated.

Unfortunately we now have a four year old ->TEAR<- and that means that she is starting to realize that there is a holiday which allows her to dress-up, get way too much candy and carve a pumpkin. Seriously how am I suppose to compete with that? Lame mom tried to convince her that we could do pizza (aka flatbread) and rent a movie of her liking. Yes, I said rent, people really still do that….I think? Maybe we are the only lame ones who actually enjoy going into a store scouring around and looking for the perfect movie, or not? Somebody back me up here!…
