Gettin my craft on



Since Jason's been gone I've pretty much spent all my free time crafting or at the pool/gym.
I came up with the idea to make these little Bears out of Tristen's baby blanket!
I didn't want to keep the blanket forever, but I could part with it...
so I improvised! Now he has a baby bear, and I'll always have the mommy.

Made him a taggie with the scraps and some crinkly stuff!
He LOVES the taggie, Noah loves the bears : P

I am making a pair out of one of Noah's blankets too,
but his blanket it furry so it's a bit more time consuming.

I have been told I should "sell" them
Have people send me a baby blanket they love but don't want to have sitting up in their closet for 40 years,
but I dunno.

I made a tutorial for them but I don't know if I'm gonna post that either >_<

Dinner: INCREDIBLE.

 

Easily the most amazing thing I've ever made in my short 22 years of life.
 http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/cooking-live/pork-chops-with-mustard-and-cream-recipe/index.html

differences I did...

I had no brandy so I subsituted white cooking whine.
No dijon, substituted Trader Joes Aioli Garlic mustar...
d sauce
Only used a spoon full of the minced garlic clove because mine was super ripe.
Threw in some green onions because I love green onions.

Had no fresh herbs. Had no lemon.

Still fuggin amazing.

Potatoes I totally winged, drizzled olive oil, sprinkled some of the garlic and shallots in, some green onions, salt, garlic salt, and paprika for some weird reason, 375 for 30 mins.

The friend who showed me this recipe followed it word for word and also said it was INCREDIBLE. And she's a total foodie who doesn't even like porkchops. O_O

I poured the sauce on my potatoes and greenbeans. YUM!!!!!!!!

Daddy's Quilt


I made this out of Tristen and Noah's outgrown baby clothes
for Jason to take to Qatar.
I love looking at it so it is blog worthy :)

Never will I make a quilt this huge again.
If only my husband were the size of a gnome.

Three-Horns NEVER play with Long-Necks.

So as I sat at the table, feeding Tristen his breakfast, listening to The Land Before Time in the background, Tristen sneezed baby food all over my face.

And I found myself, sitting there with pear and cereal on my face, licking it off in the places my tongue would reach, and wondering: "Why the F*** are three-horns such a**holes!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?"

I love being a mom.
