(I’m joining the party late, which is what I do now!)
Last night I informed Hot Hubby I wanted to change everything in the house and revamp the blog and a few things for Eli’s Lids, i.e. the tags and get the ball rolling on the new line.
With a great sigh and forlorn look into the heavens he said to himself, “I forgot about this part.”
Um… “WHAT?” I said with a knife pointed at him. It just happed to be in my hand because I was chopping veggies. It’s not like I got it out of the drawer to point it at him… this time.
“Nothing. I just forgot about this pregnancy thing.”
“The part were you think of a bunch of projects for the sake of projects.”
“So… you don’t think the kiddos need bunk beds, or the sewing room/nursery can be made into a useful space, or we need new tags for the Lids OR that the staircase should be transformed INTO A BUTTERFLY CAVE/READING NOOK!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
This is where we start laughing. Both knowing the list above is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to “projects” in the next few months.
Speaking of projects…
I stumbled upon this easy Easter Egg banner on Forever Folding Laundry.
I also noticed in another one of her blog posts she mentions In-N-Out Burger. You know how we love INO!!! I couldn’t comment on her blog, but if you read this Keri… Keep going to INO and support my family!
Then I saw these Glue Yarn Balls from Make and Takes. This looks like so much fun to do with the kiddos because you get to be messy! Perfect for spring.
Easter is just 3 weeks away! We just pulled out the decorations last night and they are beyond sparse. I have a few things in mind but a trip (or 5) to the craft store may be in order. I would also like to streamline our Easter baskets. I have a thing for matching and the randomness of them is eating away at my soul (too dramatic?) I would also like to find something without a large handle for easy storage. Ideas???
I’m linking up to 5 Minutes for Mom’s Ultimate Blog Party because this post sums up my blog – a lil’ about my family, a lil’ about my biz and a lil’ about my crafts. If you are visiting from the party, I look forward to seeing your blog!
(now you have the ROSS song stuck in your head)
This week I got a cute leaf bowl and vintage looking turkey plates at ROSS… We were at ROSS to pick up some shoes for Eli, because he only has one pair at the moment – Rainbows (filp flops) that are 2 sizes too small (once again I get the Mother of the Year Award). I saw the bowl and plates and instantly fell in love. I ran over to Hot Hubby to show him my amazing find and the conversation went like this…
Me: OMGosh! Look at these! The plates are only $2.50. Is this an awesome find or what??
HH: What are we going to use the plates for?
Me: Um… to eat off of… duh!
HH: We have plates.
Me: Yeah, but these look like vintage plates and we can use them in the Fall. It will be festive! It will totally become an enduring memory for our children… they’ll remember our Autumn candlelit dinners with these plates forever. Then when we die they’ll fight over them.
HH: Um…OK. What are you going to do with a leaf bowl? Me: An easier question to answer would be, what can’t I do with a leaf bowl?? I can put anything in it for potlucks and when I have to make something for big family gatherings. AND everyone will say how awesome it is because it’s a bowl that looks like a leaf… are you not seeing how adorable that is??
HH: You never have to make anything for big family gatherings because everybody knows you suck at cooking aren’t blessed in the kitchen.
Me: So you think I shouldn’t get the delightful leaf bowl?
HH: Well, if you can find a good use for it…
Me: I’ll eat my cereal out of it if I have to…
And I did!
I’m making a vintage apron with one of my grandmom’s patterns from the 50’s.

On our actual anniversary we went to:
Sushi Box is a TINY hole-in-the-wall place in Costa Mesa. A friend recommended it as a “cheap good sushi place.” We got all this food for under $20…
It’s about 10 square feet and the decor was… unique. But the place was hoppin’.
Then we headed on over to the Orange County Performing Arts Center to see the Bolshoi Ballet in Don Quixote. We (yep, we) love the Performing Arts Center! There is just something so fun about getting dressed up for a live performance… no matter what it is! (FYI Hairspray will be there April 6th-11th & The Lion King, May 26th- June 13th!)
After the show we cruised to The Melting Pot for dessert!
$15 gets you a small fondue pot and loads of goodies to dip into it. Yum!!
