sunday scones

i picked up the ingredients for these 'skinny' chocolate chip scones from trader joe's on saturday.  i've been craving scones since my delightful mani-pedi at the ritz-carlton in tahoe {had a cranberry scone - devine!!}.

sunday morning was perfect.  maddy slept from 8pm-6:30am (WHAT!?!?!  YES!!!) and then went back down for a bit.  it was amazing!  (especially because she woke up at 11, 2, 5, and up for good at 7 the night before.  jack woke up at 6.  i went to bed at 10:30pm, it was a rough one!)

while she took that extra morning snooze, i mixed up the ingredients and enlisted the help of jack for the kneading.  he had so much fun, he played with some extra dough for at least half an hour - perfect amount of time for the scones to bake and cool!

pete got maddy up, and she joined in the family baking:

 they turned out so well!  yummy deliciousness with the nicest light brown crust.  SO good with coffee!!

i know you'd like to hear about my experience at the ritz!  it was the most perfect surprise during a week of cabin time! the whole thing was amazing and delicious, especially my mani-pedi and kid-free time!

here are my nails:
that's malaga wine, opi, my FAV
