That's right, Baby Plattner is expected to be here November 2013!
*Now you know why there have not been so many posts lately... juggling the first trimester and a full work load is tougher than I thought! But don't worry, summer vacation is around the corner. :)

The pin basically suggested that wrapping the stems of the bananas with foil would help them keep longer. Not seeing any side by side evidence, I decided I needed to test this out a little more scientifically .. well, as scientific as I get.
To begin, the husband and I bought two large bunches of bananas from Costco. (Seriously, their 'nanas are super cheap and tasty... so worth it if you can!) We tried to get two bunches that were alike in color and size. The unscientific part is that we ate some of the non-foiled bananas as we went. They were too delicious to resist, but I tried.
We then put both bunches of bananas in one place in the kitchen. One bunch we left untouched, the other bunch we wrapped foil tightly around the stems. (Note: in another trial we discover that the foil must be wrapped tightly around the stems or it does not work.) We took a photo every day around the same time. Here are our results:
|Day 1: March 12|
|Day 2: March 13|
|Day 3: March 14|
|Day 4: March 15|
|Day 5: March 16|
|Day 6: March 17|
|Day 8: March 19|
If you try out the "foil" method, let us know how it works for you! :)

This week I experienced a few beautiful sunrises on the way to work in the morning. I absolutely love watching the fog hover over the grass!
We said goodbye to my old, comfy couches. They found their next home at my brother's house. Now we wait for OUR new couches.
And we concluded the weekend doing work...I spent all of Sunday working on report cards, but I was all done by 11:00... pm. (Note the excessive caffeine usage!)
