Diaper Stash

Still working on it, have a few more packages on the way. In the pic: extra Little Lions unbleached prefolds, Babykicks Bumboo side snapping OS pocket, kiwi GroVia with extra soaker, emerald Haute Pocket, retro cars fitted by Little Fancy Pants, b&w skull Cooshie Tooshies AIO, white Yucky Duck pocket, and five Fluffy's covers stuffed with Little Lions prefolds. Next pic: 3 dream eze fitteds, one vanilla and one mandarin GroBaby with 3 soakers. I'd like to try some bottombumpers, knickernappies, haute pocket with snaps instead of applix, and BG's.

Way Cool!

I was browsing MSN and saw this cool article with pics included. I have been fascinated with repurposed shipping containers since I first saw them in a ReadyMade mag. I was telling Corey how cool it would be, when we get a place with a big backyard, to have a place for the boys to hang out. Corey says he needs one for himself! I guess I wouldn't mind him having his own xbox retreat. These things are really neat!

The big THREE!

I so cannot believe my child is THREE years old now! I have a three year old. That sounds so weird right? I do realize they grow, but I wasn't expecting it to happen so fast. There are so many things he can do on his own now, but sometimes he just wants his Mommy, and I'm always happy when he does. He is so smart, and funny, and a great big brother. He puts his arm around Jhett and tells him "You're my friend!" How awesome is that?!

I had to see him off this morning. He is going on vacation to Branson with Nana and Poppa. He stuffed his backpack full of toys and waved bye to me and climbed up in Nana's truck. And then he was gone. I thought I would cry, but I didn't. (Not yet anyway, I still have all week!) I have a feeling when he comes back he will be even bigger. I can't wait to hear all his stories about the fun places he went and what he saw there.

I miss you Eli!!!!! Mommy loves you. Goodnight! xoxo

Love this one!

Got this one from Little Fancy Pants on hyenacart.....I opened the package and it smelled soooo good, like sugar cookies! It was so soft and fluffy and smelled so good! Corey laughed at me for smelling a diaper, but I told him it was okay b/c it hadn't ever been pooped in(yet).

Cloth Convert

Jhett is going to be a c.d. baby! I don't know why, all of a sudden one day I just decided to switch. I'm making cloth wipes and solution, and buying from diaperswappers and hyena cart here and there until we run out of pampers. I have been eyeing a couple patterns and thinking *maybe* MeMe could make us some, or maybe if I ever learn how to use my sewing machine I could try. We'll see!

Stuff I Like

Prison Break
Say Yes to the Dress
Cake Boss
Secret Life

Waiting for new seasons of Sons of Anarachy and Law & Order: SVU. We finished watching The Riches, and hoping that the movie will eventually come out to tie up all the loose ends. ONE DAY, I will catch up on Heroes, LOST, and CSI: Miami. Those are shows I love but got put on the back burner for a while. Now that we have Netflix, there are so many more shows to watch than we had before!


Lately I am more interested in sewing/crafts. I quit paper scrapbooking and started digital scrapbooking instead. But I am months behind now that Jhett is here. I am still taking tons of pics so when I get in the scrappy mood I will have lots to work with. Right now I am drooling over baby stuff on etsy, and looking for cloth on diaperswappers for when we run out of sposies.

The Cake Show

I have been watching Cake Boss for the past few days and even got Corey and Eli into it. Eli loves cupcakes! He gets excited when it's time to bake. He pulls up a chair next to the counter and helps me by putting the cupcake papers in the pan, licking the beaters, and telling me how good the batter is. So when he saw that there was a whole show about cakes, he parked it right in front of the TV, saying "Daddy, Daddy! It's the CAKE SHOW!" while clapping his hands. He especially loved the cool dinosaur cake that Buddy made. I would love to learn some neat tricks and in the future, be able to make awesome birthday cakes for the kids. Eli's birthday is just around the corner so not this year, but maybe next. Tonight after we finished up season 1 of the show, Eli and I made Milky Way Cupcakes, with Milky Way Dark bars. Looking forward to a yummy breakfast!
