I think I'm going to change my last name to STEWART!

(as in related to Martha Stewart)

I don't know what it is, but I feel VERY domesticated. It could be the fact that I have NO children at home-- so I actually have the time to do this fun stuff... and not only do I not have kids here during the day-- but ALL week during the day!

I used to not really be interested in "playing house" or being crafty- but over the last year-- I light bulb has gone off in my head and I have fallen in love with throwing parties,entertaining, cooking better meals (mainly desserts), sewing, making bows, decorating,etc....

or in other words..

For example:

How cute is this skirt? If I had this pattern right now, I'd make Erin one! TOO CUTE... By Vintage Chic named after Nie Nie. I LOVE IT!

Instead I'm making one of these for her birthday!

along with learning how to make organza flowers all at Super Saturday tomorrow! I'm so excited to see her eyes light up on Monday! I'll most likely put the flower on a headband.

Not only am I learning to do 2 new things this week... I'm ALSO branching out in my cooking world. My friend Ashley told me about this really cool site: Our Best Bites.

From that site I will be making
Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos

Chicken Bacon Stuffed Pizza Rolls


Smoked Turkey and Artichoke Panini (looks DELICIOUS!)

Then of course on Monday I'll be throwing Erin's birthday party for her with lots and lots of fun decorations and food! Pictures will have to wait on that one-- but they'll be cute no matter what.

I'm trying to teach her early.. she is coming shopping with me tonight to pick out some of the fun decorations she wants for her party. She is SO excited to have a little girls night out!

I love learning new things and becoming interested in different things as I become "wiser" After all I'm almost 29! It's about time I grow up a little:)

What new talents have you been learning that you had no interest in before??

Isn't it fun?!

I'm into anything baby because I have my little squirt now and have friends that are preggo. Have you seen the nursing covers and the car seat covers? Easy to make and VERY handy! I have made a few for myself and friends.
