A (Mostly) Handmade Baby Shower

My sis’s baby shower turned out really fun! We wanted to go with something unique and not store bought… so my mom and I got to work :) Thank you to Pinterest, as always, for the endless inspiration. Theme: Nautical (Ahoy! It’s a Boy!) Colors: Blue and Orange Games: Baby Shower Bingo Sperm Toss Tournament Guess Em’s Belly Size (I’m sure there is a better name for this game… but whatevs) :) My favorite part: I’m so glad I found this note on Pinterest before I sent out the invites. Actually, there are a ton of them out there with slightly different wording, but I think it’s is such a cute idea! Especially for my sis — she’s a big reader. She was able to leave the party with a whole collection of children’s books, and each with meaning because they came from all of her friends and family. For the invites, I finally broke out my Cricut! I got it for Christmas and back then I was super excited to start using it… then it …

Craft Stash

Okay okay… so I’ve always had a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to my craft stash – I realize this. But after seeing this post from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous, it made me laugh out loud because just the other day I think Danny finally realized the extent of it. He knew I had a lot of yarn and was accumulating a lot of fabric… but earlier this week he went looking for something in the guest room (or what I call my sewing room) :). He came back and said something along the lines of “I didn’t realize you’d filled up every drawer!” Ooops… he caught me ;) haha At least I know I’m not alone… :) Until next time,

Throwback Thursday: Mouse Edition

It’s been confirmed. We have a mouse. Or mice… not really sure yet. How do I know? Well… that answer is three-fold. For #1 I give you Zoe the hunter: She’s not very good at it – but she tries. And yes, on a side note, if you need any kind of electronic cord, just ask me. I have them all. These were all stacked in that closet; it’s no wonder the little guy thought it would be a decent place to hide. #2. Found a little pile of torn up yarn. And it wasn’t torn up like the puppies tear up yarn sometimes. It was in little pieces made into a nice little mouse bed. :/ #3. Yesterday morning, I put my foot in my boot only to find there was already something in it. Shook it out only to have a bunch of tiny pieces of dog food fly all over. Needless to say, Finn was excited… me, not so much. This brought me back to the last time I had a mouse experience… …

I’m turning 29! What!?!

Tomorrow is my 29th birthday! I’m not sure what happened there. I was at work the other day discussing my/our birthday (me, one of my techs, and one of our volunteers all have a June 29th birthday… best day ever to be born!)… and very nonchalantly I mentioned something along the lines of “I can’t believe I’m turning 28!” Eeeek! I thought it would at least be a little bit longer until I genuinely started forgetting my own age. But apparently it’s happening… now! I got home that day and mentioned something about it to Danny. He then proceeded to break the news to me, although not all that gently. I am, in fact, turning 29. It’s awesome nonetheless. I love my b-day no matter what number is associated with it (ask me about that in 11 years… that opinion may change…). But I can’t even begin to say how excited I am about 29. It’s going to be a big year. Moving back to California… starting a new job… moving into a home with …

Finnjury

Whenever Finn plays too rough and scratches or bruises us, we call it a Finnjury. Well, this time Finn gave himself a Finnjury. The pathetic little guy wouldn’t leave it alone so we had to cone him :/ He wasn’t very excited about the situation…
