It’s coming along so much! I finished the top before we left for Las Vegas, and I made the backing when we got home. It’s all sandwiched, and I started on the quilting this weekend. That will be a time task, I’m doing different motifs on every square. And actually, every part of each square.
I almost never remember this anniversary, but yesterday it just hit me. Adam and I were both home sick with different bugs, and I was poking around in my calendar. And I realized that today is the 16th, and that’s my blog birthday.
We are wild about mini muffins around here, and this is one of my tricks for getting more fruits and veggies into Hannah’s body. But the little stinker knows now that I sneak things into her muffins, so she only wants to eat them if they come out of a mini muffin package from the store. So…I may have started saving the store packages to sneak my own muffins into them. I’m not above trickery when it comes to feeding this kid.
This recipe from Umami Girl is a double whammy. Bananas and sweet potatoes, so much good stuff. You don’t taste the sweet potatoes, these just taste like banana bread. I dotted chocolate chips into them after I’d poured them into my muffin pan to make them extra enticing.
Ugh, mini frittatas. They were such a promising idea while I was trying to continue my trend with Hannah of getting her to eat things in mini muffin form. But I just cannot get these to work. I’ve tried three different versions, and no matter what I do they glue themselves to the inside of the pan. Mine is now a scratched-up mess from trying to liberate them. And, strangely, they seem to shrink up and deflate inside the pan. Not quite what I had in mind.
Other posts on this trip: Spring Break in Las Vegas on the Strip.
As much fun as we had running around on the Strip, I think it’s safe to say we had way more fun on this trip sightseeing in the rest of Las Vegas and the desert beyond. There were so many cool things to do.
We just got back from a week in Vegas early yesterday morning. We’re all still very jet lagged, but I’m putting my photos together from the trip. I’m splitting them into a couple of posts just to spread them out a little.
A week in Las Vegas with a three-year-old is a very different animal than a week with just adults. The last time we were there was almost exactly 4 years ago, also on spring break, with my mother- and stepfather-in-law. This trip was very different, but so much fun.
Yes, I know it’s April. But it occurred to me that there were lots of fun things about last month that I didn’t want to write about as standalone posts. So, why not combine them? Especially since the grim weather is finally starting to disappear, and I can remember all the good times winter and I had without feeling stabby about the snow.
You guys! I loooove these Stately Type Moda shirts. Jaybird Quilts regrammed a photo of these, and I just preordered the Maker and “Do-Re-Mi” designs. If you preorder by tomorrow (the shirts will ship in late April) you can get 20% off with the code MODA20. Find the Stately Type Moda shirts here.
I’m a bit late with this, it’s been a week. It’s been a month. Hannah turned 3, I had the stomach flu for a week, spring never came. Huge highs, some lows. I’m glad March is over, but I’m also bummed. There’s no buildup to Hannah’s birthday anymore, and suddenly we just have a three-year-old.
