The Saturday Post

I couldn’t seem to keep ahead of the game this week, but I was still able to find some really cool stuff hanging out in my Google Reader.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I adore cupcakes. I think these cupcake gift boxes from Sew.Craft.Create. are pretty much the cutest thing ever and I’m thinking they would make great little favor boxes for my sister’s bridal shower next month.  You can find the tutorial over at Little Birdie Secrets.

This delicious looking Blood Orange Margarita from White on Rice Couple this Web Deliciousness: Cinco de Mayo yumminess post from Pioneer Woman.

I thought these Cupboard Door-Gone-Art Desks from iCandy Handmade (tutorial featured on Ucreate) would be great to have for the boys to use in the living room while they’re watching TV.  Maybe by the time Luke is old enough to use one, I’ll be brave enough to give it a try.

I’m always looking for breakfast ideas since that’s generally the only meal we get to eat as a family.  These Creme Brulee French Toasts from Smitten Kitchen look amazing.  We’ll be trying them for sure.

What fun things did you find on the interweb this week?


(Almost) Wordless Wednesday


I ordered a half yard of each of these today with a very special project (for a very special little girl) in mind. So excited!

Weekend in (iPhone) Photos

It was a long, crazy weekend.

The boys and I went to a friend’s house on Friday night to decorate cookies.

On Saturday, I cleaned like a madwoman prepare for my mom’s arrival.  L did this on the couch while J napped in my bed.

After the boys went to bed (temporarily in J’s case), we colored eggs.

Remember how I said it was temporary?

Once everyone was FINALLY in bed, the bunny visited.

J and I went for an early morning Starbucks run Easter morning.

We had brunch at my Gram’s.

J hunted eggs in the backyard with his Great Gram.

We found lottery tickets in eggs (and won $8!).

We ate this Sunflower Peep Cake I made.

And then we attempted a photo shoot. Clearly, everyone was over Easter.

All in all, it was a good weekend, but I am really hoping for a little calm this weekend.

**Some of these photos are the Instagram version because for some reason all my originals didn’t save even though I have it set to do that.  I think the app is messing with me.  :/
