Thanks

Thanks for all your encouraging replies to my last thread. You know how sometimes you just read other Blog's and all you can think of is how perfect they are compared to yourself? Well I was having one of those days...or weeks...well actually lives. But whatever.

Anyway, I will post my Bun recipe soon. I really will. My friend Emily gave it to me months and months ago...and I sort of didn't write it down very clearly. Trust me, it's a guessing game every time I make the buns. They turn out really good each time...but I'm not sure how to explain the thought process that went into my recipe. It's all in 'Meagan Shorthand' and it would take hours to explain to you on this BLOG. So, I'm going to go through the recipe again and find away to make it easier to explain. Or...maybe I'll just ask Emily for it again.

So until then I'll just share more stories from my life. First of all, I'm not sure if I made Ben out to be that great of a husband. Well I guess a good husband is one who lets you buy whatever you want for your Birthday...but a great one wouldn't make me go out two weeks late to pick up my own gift which was supposedly his idea. But really, he is great. And to prove it, he brought me home these flowers:


And then because things were even, and he wasn't comfortable NOT being in the Doghouse, Ben pulled out this fancy contraption.


I can just hear my Mother in Law laughing right now as she looks at this picture. It's the train set that Ben's dad had when Ben was growing up (and maybe even before that)...and even though it's cool and all, the kitchen table is not my idea of a good place to set it up - permanently. So I'm 100% sure Ben's mom is laughing right now because she finally got rid if it, and now knows that I have a life time of trying to keep it out of sight.

And then Finally, Hailey now belongs to the tu-tu club. Unfortunately (or fortunately - depending on how you look at it) she doesn't belong to the "my mom is crafty and made me this tu-tu" club. Oh well. Actually I was planning to make her one - but then my friend Laura posted pictures of her Girls in some really cute tu-tu's...so I asked he if she could help me make mine. And she so kindly informed me that she bought her tu-tu's. GASP!!! A stay at home mom bought tu-tu's for her daughter?? No. But it's true! I guess she did some calculating on what her time was worth, how much tulle is, and how long it would take to make a tu-tu. In the end, it made more sense to buy them off Etsy rather then make them herself. And she's super crafty, so if she decided it's not worth it making her own, then I will agree. And that's what I did. I bought mine off Etsy and I couldn't be happier. So here are a few shots of Hailey the other day...this was a bit of an impromptu photo session - so there are no real amazing shots...not that there would be even if I planned it. But they're cute still. Enjoy.
