I haven’t been doing too well at telling you what we’ve been up to, or even what you really want, showing off cute pictures of my daughter.
So, here she is!
Evelyn is modeling her piggy jammies, as well as a sneak peak at our nearly finished reupholstered couch, a poorly done bang cutting job, and our throw pillow cover of the season. Steve and I have decided we like change enough that we’re not picking a color to decorate our living room, we’ll just change it up whenever we feel like it. I’m loving the green pillows right now, and assuming I won’t feel like changing them for April, since I’ll be having a new baby and all.
This is when I should show you other pictures of my house and tell you all about what our new place is like, but I have a couple more things I want to fix up/clean up before I take pictures, so… be patient with me.
But speaking of cleaning up, I’ve discovered an AMAZING housekeeping tool: Let me introduce you to the fort.
Our folding table with a cover over it was made for Evelyn to hang out and play with her toys under.
But Mommy has found a new special use for it! All I have to do is lift up the side, shove everything in on the floor underneath…
and viola! My living room looks clean! Or, it would if I vacuumed, but I’m still working on that.
Unfortunately, Evelyn isn’t really using it as a fort, so eventually my guilt at being a lazy housekeeper will catch up with me and I’ll take it down. But for now I’m loving the laziness.
And finally, to show that I do still eventually make food (since, you know, that is all I used to write about…) here is a quick pic of Steve eating his Pi day pie.
I started out the day planning on making pecan pie, then changed my mind at the grocery store and decided on key lime. Apparently I wasn’t the only one, since Pioneer Woman, Ree, decided to do the same 3 years ago for Pi day. You can’t go wrong with her recipes so I gave it a try. Fabulous! I used 3 less graham crackers than she did, simply because I ran out, but I was very happy with the crust/filling ratio. I also added a drop of green food coloring, since it seemed like I should.
And by the end of the day I was too tired to mess with adding more lime zest to the top, so I didn’t. But, ohhh…. it was so good. So good, in fact, that I think I will go enjoy a piece right now. Maybe in bed. Because I’m 37 weeks pregnant and that is what I should do. Right?
