Paper cutters can cut more than paper....

Remind me never to leave a paper cutter blade on the floor
while cleaning out my crafting dresser
And also that we need to buy some grown up band-aids....

Being 6 Months Pregnant....

Being 6 months pregnant means a lot of things means changing clothes multiple times a day from "sneezing accidents" means bawling at the movies Snow Dogs and Old School means wearing the same pants 10 days in a row because they actually fit. means sleeping with every single pillow in the house... plus some couch cushions. 

But you know the best thing it means?
It means this baby is getting closer to joining our crazy family.
I can't wait to meet her. 
I hope she likes crazy.

Angel Food Delight

Fooooood. Fooooooooooooood....
I love you so much.... in a very unhealthy way. 

My husband was trying to come up with a good date idea yesterday
I told him, that unless it involved food, I didn't want anything to do with it. 
Addiction anyone?

This is one of my favorite food addictions...
because while you're eating it, you don't feel like you're getting fat...
so you eat more...and more....and more....
and pretty soon your 5 notches out on your belt. 
Now that's what I call DELICIOUS!

Angel Food Delight
because I don't have beautiful dishware!
Box of Angel Food Cake
Frozen Berries (strawberries are the best)
Large box of Jello (Sugar free works great)
2 Tubs of whipped topping (I used light)

Cook the Angel Food cake according to the box
Cook Jello, using 1/2 the water it calls for
Mix the frozen berries into the jello before you put it in the fridge. 

Break up the Angel Food cake into small cubes (really, I just tore it up with my hands...who can tell the difference?), and place 1/3 of them at the bottom of your bowl. Do a layer of jello/berries, then a layer of whipped cream. 

Repeat these layers until you've used all of your cake/jello/whipped cream. Top with the remaining whipped cream.

Yep. That's it. I know. SOOO fancy.

Nautical Headband Tutorial

I love the whole "Nautical" trend going on right now
...well... on OTHER people.
See, stripes make me look like a bucket o' fat
I'm already almost 6 months pregnant...I don't need any extra help. 

But I found a crazy awesome nautical headband that I had to try.
And well...headbands don't really make you look fat.

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15 minutes
Cost: cheap
Fun-o-meter: DUH!

Thick yarn or rope
Glue Gun

Step One: The Knot

Step Two: The Band

Step 3: Putting it all together

And that's it! It may look complicated, but this little baby isn't hard...and it won't make you look fat
Unless you're preggo
then sorry

How to mortify your husband...

My husband is a pretty easy going guy
I mean, he has to me seeing as he took the plunge with me. 

Last night I mortified him. 
Even I was a little embarrassed...
And embarrassing me is not easy.
Heck, I accidentally peed my pants last week in (pregnancy...what gives??) 
and it didn't even phase me.


Last night I was out shopping with my husband at Ross, trying to find some maternity clothes that don't make me look like a whale (My celebrity look alike is Free Willy as of late).
 I was going to and from the dressing room, and they kept this meticulous count of the clothes I brought both in and out.
 I guess I can't blame them. 
I look like I'm stuffing clothes under my shirt with how fat I'm getting. 

I was in the aisle and I found a top that I wanted to try on. 
Now I did have an undershirt on, and I really didn't want to go back to the paranoid theft prevention fitting room attendants, so I ripped off my top shirt (leaving my undershirt) to try on the top. 
Cute right?? Don't worry, I bought it. 
But when I looked down, my undershirt had disappeared
And I was standing in the aisle wearing...well...not much.
 My husband turned to talk to me and his eyes went HUGE. 
Like a "What the heck are you doing?!!" look. 
I tried to quickly redress myself, but you know how shirts are...I couldn't find the sleeves...

All I can say is that the patrons of Ross got quite the awesome show last night.
And my husband...well...he's recovering

Harry Potter forever...

Some of you may remember my Harry Potter Wand Tutorial...

Or my HUSBANDS recreation of my tutorial.....
(I know, I know...his is much cooler. Why is my husband always one up-ing me??!)

Well, with Harry Potter 7 coming out I couldn't resist... tonight I'm going to try my hand at creating a t-shirt with this design on the front...

because I have 2 younger brothers that may be as Harry Potter obsessed as me
And well...It's been a while since I sent a package that way.
