The Muffin Experiment

July 20, 2011
Last week, I was blog hopping and saw a recipe for banana and chocolate chip muffins. This immediately prompted a trip to the grocery store. Unfortunately, once I got to the muffin aisle, my enthusiasm for baking from scratch disappeared and I found a .99 cent bag of ready-mix blueberry muffins. Processed with Oh My Good Knits’ freebie action: Hazy B&WDon’t get me wrong, they were tasty, but I should have stuck to my guns and made the banana and chocolate chip muffins. In fact, I fully plan to execute my plan…um, this weekend. More than anything, this little baking...

The other day I happened to ask my mom if she’d seen my flute lately. As a result, on Friday, I received a package in the mail.

Birthday Party!

May 18, 2011
You may remember that I attended my niece and nephew’s birthday party a couple of weekends ago. I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had much time to process the photos until earlier this week. We had such a wonderful time and these pictures are just a taste of it!Alyssa (7) and Carter (2) are obviously five years apart, but they were also born about two weeks apart. I’m not sure that they’ll always have joint parties but it really worked this year – besides, when have you known a two year old to notice the difference. There were two bounce houses...
