ANNOUNCEMENT & NURSERY REVEAL

Well hello! Another long hiatus from blogland. I know I say this every time but I really do have a good excuse! :) We welcomed Selah (pronounced "say-lah") Lynn into the world three whole weeks early on Wednesday, July 22nd. We are a little bit biased but we think she is absolutely perfect. (For those that know me, I was really ridiculously worried that she would be... well, ugly. No worries! Just like I said, perfection!) She was born weighing six pounds, nine ounces, and was nineteen inches long.

LOW CARB FREEZER MEALS

And we are at 36 weeks, as of this past Tuesday! We are going to the doctor's every week (and sometimes twice a week!) just to make sure everything is going okay and the baby and I are healthy. In the meantime, I have assembled several freezer meals for post-delivery. We plan on using these after the baby is born and the inevitable day that I go back to work. Boo.

RICE KRISPIE TREATS TWO WAYS: BUTTERFINGER & OREO

So my birthday was at the beginning of June. I love celebrating my birthday! It morphed from a birthday-day into a birthday-week to a birthday-month. Next, I think I should celebrate each birthday-year! What do you think? :)

BREADBOX, BIRDBOX, OR BABYBOX?

So, I got this old wooden breadbox several months ago on a yard sale site for $10... or maybe less. This has been sitting around in our living room for so many months that I just don't remember the original cost!

FLORAL NAME LETTERS

Announcing, Selah Lynn! Ok, so she isn't here yet (less than two and a half months away!), but we finally picked her full name. Selah (pronounced "say-lah") is a Hebrew word that can be found in Psalms. It means to take a pause for meditation or reflection. Lynn is after one of Todd's close family friends.

LEMON FROSTED SUGAR COOKIES

Nothing says warm weather like fresh lemon! I just LOVE lemon desserts because you can eat and eat and never feel heavy-full after. (I know you know what I mean.) Lemon is just so refreshing and light! I whipped up these Lemon Frosted Sugar Cookies for a potluck dinner and they were a smashing hit! They were super easy and quick to make--- so skip that bagged mix and give these a try!

LIFE UPDATE!

Wow. Sorry for disappearing from the world of blogland! I have been super busy with life and baby stuff, that I haven't had time to squeeze in a post that I thought was "blog worthy". So, I guess this will be more of a "life update" post.

I have been (sporadically!) making miniatures, although in the past few weeks, that has been put on hold. (I'll explain why soon!) I have been almost done with one scene for over a year now... and it's still that way- almost done. Anyone hungry for some freshly baked, warm muffins with creamy butter?
