odds & ends

1. 20 Habits to Quit in the Next Year.

2. Baby product recommendation! Brecken LOVES her playmat. Day after day we lay her on it and she still isn't bored by it. It's been hilarious to watch her progression of first just hanging out doing nothing to noticing the hanging animals to punching the hanging animals to grabbing the hanging animals! This is a great toy to keep immobile babies happy--she literally kicks her legs in excitement!
Garlic and Hummus Tortilla Chips - Aldi
3. If you're an Aldi shopper, be on the lookout for these chips! I picked them up on a whim a few weeks ago and they're now a regular part of the grocery list...we eat them with salsa but they're also flavorful enough to eat on their own.

4. I love this Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting as is, but my friend Sarah made a play on the original version, subbing almond extract in for the bourbon and the vanilla extract and omitting the cinnamon, and it was fantastic! I love anything with almond extract (like these cookies...mmmm!) and this cake was no different! Have you made an adjustment to a recipe you found here? Tell me about it!
