More Projects

We finally got up our new curtain in our bedroom! Before we just had a short black curtain. I think we'll still put it up behind this one so the sun doesn't come through so much but that will require hammering and Layla is asleep :) 

This one is a work in progress but Antony is going to make me a mail'll make more sense when its done :)  But I stained it this past weekend and really love the color! I'm excited to see the finished product. 

Layla is very picky about food these days and its hard to get her to eat vegetables that aren't in baby food puree form. I overheard a lady at the pool the other day say that she puts veggies in pancakes to get her kids to eat them so I thought I would give it a shot! The veggies were still a little too chunky but she ate it covered in applesauce! Still didn't fix the problem of me having to feed her but we'll get there. At least she's getting some form of veggies. I added some cinnamon and pear puree for sweetness and extra flavor...and I promise it looked better once it was cooked :) I just didn't get a picture of that.

Those are all the projects for now! Tomorrow the in-laws come up for the day and then Antony and I are going car shopping on Saturday! So excited!! We also celebrated 2 years of marriage yesterday with a little ice cream date while my sister and brother-in-law babysat. Layla got some fun playtime with them and her cousin Macey.

Red, White and Blue

I just wanted to share my dessert I made for tomorrow's 4th of July celebrations! My creations never turn out so pretty!! Although some are a little messy, I really like how they look! The filling is cheesecake flavored pudding, heavy whipping cream and almond extract. Next time I'll leave out the extract.

Here's the link to the recipe if you'd like to try them. I used cheesecake pudding instead of vanilla

More DIY Projects

With a couple '1st birthday' photo shoots coming up (Layla's and a friend of mine's daughter) I decided to get a new photo prop for the sessions.

I found this bench for $10 at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be PERFECT for little people to sit on or stand at for a pictures :)

I stained it (my first time using stain...) and here's how it turned out! Its a little darker than I wanted but I still like it. 

Layla and I (and my mom) made her 4th of July shirt today...Its slightly messy but I think that adds to the cuteness! 


In other news...Layla got her first pancake today. To make it 'healthy' I added a raspberry. *Side note: fruits like raspberries do not hold up well on skillets*

These girls LOVE animals and get so excited to see Jake and Riley at Grandma and Grandpa's.
