my kitchen

i decided to redo my kitchen a month ago and i'm still getting ideas for it. i repainted the grassy green a calm cream color and am very happy with the change. (thanks lacey for the color!!!) i've begun a collection of nicknacks, that have so far cluttered up my countertops and sill, and soon plan on sweetening up my husband to build some shelves on the empty wall above the stove for display. husbands are such great tools for housewives to have :) maybe some apple cobbler will do the trick?

here's some of my clutter. the new paint color is to the left. i'm always on the look out for colorful pots for plants, fyi!

my sister got me these measuring cups last year and they became part of my inspiration for the kitchen.

i've also decided to start an herb garden. these are taking residence in a south facing window in the den, basil and sage respectively. i'd also like to get rosemary because lately i've been using it on everything!

meet allie

this is audrey's new doll allie. i can't help but notice the resemblance to myself as i was five years ago: black hair and a camera. baby is asleep and what does mama do with her precious free time? hang out with allie, and blog it. oh and quilting, there's that too.

my little sunflower!

"i love sunshine!"

"it brings out the highlights in my hair, which my mama is very jealous of"

"okay, enough of that. time for exploring!"

"i see grass!"

"ooh roughness..."


"... and holes"

"if all babies had grass..."

"...they'd all be as happy as me!"

"it's best when it's wet and clumpy"

"that makes it chewable"

"the end!"

happy new year!

i apologize for no pictures, but our macbook had an untimely end with an 8 month old.  we were able to save our files, thankfully, and we've been using michael's elderly powerbook from college since.  we're shopping around for a desktop and are planning on setting up a simple desk in the den.  we're hoping that will be more audrey-proof!

UPDATE: michael brought an extra mouse and keyboard from school and the macbook is working now!  we call it our franken-computer or lil' frankie for short ;)
