I'm sorry I've been absent from blogging. The week just got away from me!
The easiest way to catch you up would be via Instagram:
Do I have your attention?
I have never been a fan of bacon - Please don't leave my blog!! - but hubby loves bacon.
I became the world's best wife when I had a hot BLT sandwich waiting for him when he got home the other night. His sandwich got double the bacon (see below)
Does that basket weave of bacon look familiar? Thank you Pinterest!
For 10 year old nephew
Knowing there were 16 kids at this party, none of which are ours....we decided to pre-drink.
Shake your head all you want. It didn't help. They still drove us crazy. And once the parents knew we were drinking, they wanted some!
Mexican Loteria game and St. Patrick's day confetti.
A collision of cultures
A goal of mine is to take more pictures of J's family. They see each other all the time, but don't have enough pictures of each other. This was taken on my phone in a dark room, so next time I'll bring a 'real' camera. But it was a success! As soon as I posted this on Facebook, J's sister who lives in Ohio commented on it. She likes to SEE her family.
Picture frame Template
I cut out the sizes of my frames and hung them up to see if I liked the placement.
One week later, these have moved around multiple times and I'm still not satisfied! Good thing I didn't put holes in the wall! Saved by Pinterest. And no Salmon is not my first choice in wall colors, but it's growing on me.
Kid Friendly Breakfast
My Sister in Law was traveling this weekend, so I baby sat her kids (that's a whole other blog post). She got sick while she was on the road, so the morning she gets back her kids are like "yay! Mommy's back! What's for breakfast?"
I had just bought bacon and eggs so.....
Bacon + Muffin tins + eggs + cheese on tip = Breakfast!
Kid-friendly too! The nieces and nephews (ages 5-10) helped me make these.
Chef Mommy was taking a break!
Organize Organize Organize
We finally used some wedding gift cards and went to Bed Bath and Beyond this weekend. I would have spent $107 but with all the gift cards only spent $11!
First thing out of the bag: a Real Simple drawer organizer. So much easier than situating a bunch of baskets in a drawer. Thanks Danielle, Aunt Edie, and Patterson's for the gift cards!
Which reminds me, I have GOT to get my wedding Thank You's in the mail. That's what I get for DIYing....
