Share the Covers--Take On Me

Since last week's Share the Covers was a little darker, I'm lightening the mood today with a new rendition of a classic 80's song. 

In other news, I tried to curl my hair.  And until it stormed half way through the day, it actually held up to my delight.

I was going for an 80's-ish nautical look with a punk/ska-ish twist to go with the song o' the day.  But apparently I looked very pirate-esque because Patrick held no bars making pirate comments this morning.

Also, I think that I have created a monster.  In my daughter.  This will require some backtracking.  So every Friday night in the summer, my kids and I have movie night.

And every Friday night, no matter the weather or season, they require hot cocoa.  Well, we ran out of the packaged stuff and my daughter was not havin' it. 

Luckily, I had seen a recipe for some hot cocoa using only milk and Nutella--both of which I had.  So we made some and it was gooood.

Here's where the monster explanation comes in--unbeknownst to me, Brielle had never had Nutella before.  Let me just say that the moment her tongue hit the spoon, she was hooked.

And I don't mean hooked like in an "wow, I liked that" sort of way.  I mean hooked, addicted like crack to Nutella.

She spent the rest of the weekend sneaking fingers full of Nutella from the cabinet and begging me to give her more. 

Ultimately I had to find a recipe to use the rest of the Nutella just to keep her occupied.  We made Nutella cupcakes.  They were good.  And hopefully enough to hold her over for a while . . .
