Andy's 35th Birthday! Cookies & Crafts

Today is Andy's 35th! Happy Birthday to my favorite husband...haha.

I felt ambitious today and wanted to do a couple of fun projects. I stuck Augie in the Moby Wrap...

he actually likes it (so do I...very comfortable). He fell asleep right away, long enough for me to do something creative. I made Andy some beer coasters, which I wanted to make him for Christmas, but never got around to doing. They are pretty fun and just have some different advertisements, etc for beer on them. Can we say Modge Podge? hehe. I hot glued cloth on the bottom so they won't scuff anything. Oh they are made out of tiles...

Then I thought I would make him some sort of good eats. I figured that we had the ingredients for oatmeal raisin cookies. So I whipped up a batch of those from one of my favorite foodie websites, Smitten Kitchen. I altered the recipe slightly, as I didn't have any eggs. I used a half of a banana instead. And I added some chocolate chips to the mix....just for fun.

Here's to a great Birthday for you Andy! Looking forward to spending the evening making you dinner!

Roller Derby Shower!

This is me, Sinful Sally, on skates just over a year ago. My last bout, before hanging up my skates for retirement, was in August 2010.

This is me now...

Today was the roller derby shower, hosted by my derby chicks that I used to spend 2-4 nights a week and numerous weekends every month.  I miss seeing them so often. And after skating a bout last night and staying out late to party, they made the baby shower a day to remember. It was, over the top, fantastic and a blast.

We played lots of games:

The baby picture game...bring your baby picture and try to pick out who is who. The draw what the baby will look like...using a paper plate on top of your head. The diaper game...split into teams of three, take one roll of TP, create a diaper as fast as you can with the WHOLE roll.

The name that tune (title and artist) with 17 songs which have the name Baby or Babe in the title. 

Turbo Trixie made a boat load of phenomenal food (I should have taken pictures: artichoke dip, homemade pretzels, mea…

Going Gluten Free-Dairy Free

Over the past several weeks I've changed my diet drastically. The wee one is a gassy little man and as I have adjusted my diet, I've noticed things have changed for the better. There is a lot of information floating around about eliminating certain foods from your diet which can irritate babies digestive systems. The major players that can affect infants are dairy, wheat, soy, eggs, beans, broccoli, spinach, peanuts, and citrus fruits, among a few others. I have cut all of these out of my diet except for eggs. This means no cheese, greek yogurt and other good things that I love to eat....however I've noticed that with cutting these things out, not only is Augie's digestive system is mine. It's a win win. Of course I still miss eating a few of these things (specifically cheese, greek yo and peanut butter!), but I feel pretty good with the whole process. 
So, with undertaking this adventure we have embarked on some new dishes in the kitchen. We are still g…

Compost Tumbler & Rain Barrel

They are done (minus still needing to put the overflow nozzle on the rain barrel). The composter is already loaded with yard and kitchen scraps. We mounted the barrel on it's side with castor wheels underneath so we can roll it and mix up the good stuff. And we are awaiting a little rain to try out the rain barrel officially. A had to try out the rain barrel (of course) and sprayed the roof with water. It went where it was supposed to go, so we should be all good next time it rains.
