I should be ashamed of myself to keep you waiting.
I've been super lazy with blogging lately. I've been reading other blogs, just haven't kept up on mine. I even have pictures to post. But they're on my phone. And posting them would take effort. Wow, I'm a real trooper, aren't I.
So here's the dish:
Okay, okay I'll upload the pics.
I got this cute H &M shirt from Rubbish, an online thrift store by Meredith. 5 bucks, including shipping! Thanks, Meredith. I loooove my shirt.1. 20 weeks. Little Abraxas Fitzwilliam (I came up with that this morning. Facebook friends will have seen it before. Brilliant, isn't it?) is getting more active. It seems like just when I start feeling concern about him being still for too long, he gives me a little jab or two as though to say "still here, Mama. Stop your worry-warting."
This is the "cute" side of my belly. The rest of me is so not cute. Trust me.
2. We celebrated Oreo's 100th Birthday this week. We never buy Oreos. Like, ever. But we caved when we saw a commercial and thought, ohhh that looks good. One quick run to Wal-mart later, we were happily dunking and eating those delightful little cookies.
And I wondered if the guy discovered the recipe by burning the brownies.
Because even though Oreos are delish, that's kind of what they taste like.
"Mmm, this is actually really good! But it would be even better with a little bit of creamy stuff on it. Just to sweeten it even more."
"Mmmmm.... I got three words for you. Ur-eek-ah!"
And thus the Oreo was born. From a burnt brownie.
Okay, I don't think that's true, but you never know.
3. I'm making two maxi skirts. Those things are just too fun. The first one is sea-green and has a diagonal knit pattern to it, so I tried to make it into a chevron-type zig-zag pattern.
And I cut it too small. Yeah, take the measurements the girl with no butt and a pre-pregnancy size 2 gives you and double it. It'll be okay though. I bought more fabric and intend to add more panels. It'll add to the style of the skirt, I'm sure. And I'll just hate my butt for a sec.
I'll post pictures of that when they're done and include the link for the tutorial. I got it off Pinterest. Wow, look at me! I'm actually doing something from Pinterest instead of just pinning and admiring and commenting on it! Yay!
4. Speaking of Pinterest, I want to create a "tried and true" board, but with a cuter title. It'll be things I've tried and were successful. And opposite that, a "tried and denied" board. (I like that title) It'll be stuff that I made an attempt at and it didn't go so well.
Like drying fresh strawberries in my oven. Meh. They were good when they were hot, but once they cooled, they were half dry and half cold strawberry mush. Yuck. Going to try fruit roll ups next time.
