I said goodbye to my "drug dealer"car and hello to my new Mom-Mobile. See--that's me standing by it. Pretty, huh? Don't mind the date...my camera is messed up. Or my hair or that I have grown A LOT (I think he may have dropped?) or the fact that I now live in a neighborhood and not on a farm...
Ohhhh just kiddin'. If anyone knows me well enough, they know I wouldn't be caught dead in a minivan (sorry to any of the minivan drivers out there who may be reading this--they just aren't my cup o' tea). Minivans are like Mom jeans.
They kind of just go together and I can't bring myself to do either.
Anyway, here is my new ride--for real this time. I love it already!!!
Gotta be able to haul around this pouty little guy in something safe, right?! (Taken on 10/14).
A photographer from Chicago came down to take pictures of farmers that use FiberMax to use in upcoming advertisements. Here are a couple of Jevon and I. I was working and missed out on the family photos, so they were nice enough to take some of us later that evening. They took quite a few and these 3 are my favorites :)
If this isn't love, I don't know what is! For your enjoyment- a teaser of our recent maternity photo shoot.
(I'm kidding and WTF???)
No, but really--I've had someone offer to take pictures of me free of charge because she is building her portfolio. I emailed her back and said, "sure, I'll be your guinea pig!" There won't be any bare belly stuff or me rolling around nude in a sheet. No thanks. Hopefully they turn out good--we shall see!
I ordered this polish today and am super excited to get it in. It's between gray and beige. I think it looks more green? Either way, I can't wait to get it in and try it out on my toes! I spotted it on AOL's homepage last week and according to them, this "greige" is going to be a hot color this fall.
Not a whole lot of progress made, but I did get the curtains hung. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the curtains match the bumper perfectly. I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along.
I never thought I would be so excited about finials, but I am and I think these go great in the room.
This bathroom is in the nursery. It's pretty much done. I'm kind of regretting not painting it. At the time, I felt like I needed to hurry and make a decision because painting needed to be done before we could tile and I just couldn't do it. I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I just opted to not paint. I've got towels at the monogram shop to hang on the towel bar and this is on order from Etsy (except it will say Logan) and will hang on the far wall:
Anyway, here is what it looked like before if you are interested:
It was close to 10:00 when we woke up (which was wonderful considering I was wide awake at 5 am yesterday morning- on a SATURDAY!!!). Anyway, Jevon cooked breakfast out on the patio this morning. Yum!!! He and David cooked on it last weekend--Hibachi style. I would have loved to have gotten a picture of that!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
They are soooo good! I'm on my second one as I type this.
We got to see our little guy yesterday. The ultrasound took about an hour and the little stinker had his foot and hand in front of his face the entire time. I was hoping to get a really good picture of his face, but he just wasn't feeling it I guess. He's weighing in at 3 pounds 8 ounces and is right on track.
I struggled with finding hostess gifts for my baby shower. When I buy a gift, I always try to find something that I would love to get. Sometimes this is really easy and sometimes it's kind of hard. I finally decided on these cute pouches from 31 Gifts. I'm pleased with how they came out (for the most part) and think they are so cute! I plan on filling them with notecards I picked up from Paper Source, someBath & Body Works lotion and of course a thank you card.
This is my second favorite room in the house and I am sad to say it has been dismantled and moved down the street. With Simply Sassy being as busy as we have been, it just made sense to move our stuff into a larger space and out of the house. Also, now that our guest bedroom is a nursery, we needed another room for overnight guests. So, here is the room now (we've stripped the bed and still need to paint it black, but you get the idea):
I'm a city girl that has been transplanted to a peanut farm. I live with my wonderful husband, 2 dogs, and bird. I like to spend my time reading celebrity gossip, watching reality TV, online shopping, rearranging, and decorating our home. Lots of substance there, huh? I initially started this blog to post a picture a day for an entire year (365 Project) and now I find myself writing about anything and everything. Enjoy!
