It's suppose to rain all weekend, so I'm thinking a Twilight Saga marathon is in order and then go see Breaking Dawn 2, again. I saw it last night and it was amazing. Going to make some soup and that's that. I'm so excited for Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving and Tamale night (All next week). The weekend always starts with so much promise, I think the key is not to have a hangover Saturday ;)
I've pinned a lot of recipes for cheddar garlic biscuits (knock off Red Lobster) and have tried 3 or 4 over the past two years. I took a little from one recipe and a little from another and came up with this winning combo...
Happy 3 day weekend! No big plans here. Our calendar is already filling up for the holiday season, eek! I should finish some projects this weekend. I also need to find a new book to read, any suggestions? I had my first book club meeting yesterday it was awesome, I didn't realize how much I would enjoy it. Have you ever been in a book club?
I am super stoked that pinterest is now offering 3 private boards. I realize that it wouldn't be good if all boards were private that would take away the entire purpose of the repin feature but now you can plan a surprise birthday party for your husband or best friend and they wouldn't know it (not that Joe is on pinterest).
I hope you all have a happy weekend! It seems like a soup kind of weekend, doesn't it?
Kristen and I both have sewing machines but rarely use them well actually I have had mine for 3 years and used it once and technically my mom used it. We attended a baby shower Saturday and thought we should try and sew part of our gift. We both love personalized/handmade gifts.
Kristen found a tutorial on burp cloths, that she thought would make the perfect addition to our baby shower gift. We made a total of eight burp cloths, while at the fabric shop we found two types of fabrics one that had a little stretch and one that didn't, the one that didn't was MUCH easier to sew. The stretchy fabric would bunch as you we were sewing, lesson learned. Maybe after some practice we can use the stretchy fabric.
8 Burp cloths
Lotion & baby wash
12 Onesies w/month stickers (stickers purchased on etsy)
Small toy for center of bow
Yay! It's the weekend, tonight I'm working on my fear of my sewing machine and will be making burp cloths with Kristen. She is so sweet she got me goggles since one of my fears is that the sewing machine needle will hit a pin and it will break off and well you know stab me in the eye lol. Baby shower tomorrow for a friend and then a pimp and ho party. I really had to dig for a ho outfit, if I was in my 20's this would be easy I probably had a closet full of ho attire j/k, pictures to follow. No big plans for Sunday except trying out a new pulled pork recipe and staining my new monogram (see below).
