G.D. shouted out Stacia‘s gorgeous, haunting blog about her pregnancy and impending motherhood, which you can read here.
Jamelle shouted out a new, fancy toy.
Monica (that’s me) shouted out her (my?) peanut sauce recipe, which I’ll paste in the comments below, but I should have shouted out Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which she’s watched on repeat since she got sick this weekend. I feel for today’s kids. We had the best cartoons, and the best teenage shows. Sigh. I miss the long-lost WB.
