This past Sunday some very special ladies threw me & our sweet baby girl one of the most adorable baby showers ever! It was complete with yummy cake, dream catcher favors, & lots of laughs. I cannot say thank you enough to everyone that came out & celebrated with us!
I'm having a difficult time wrapping my head around the fact that this is what our garden looks like without us having to water like crazy...we've experienced a 6 year drought here in the high plains of Texas for those of you who aren't sure why I'm so amazed. Needless to say, I cannot wait to get this produce into the kitchen! Anyone have a tasty recipe for eggplants other than simply grilled or in eggplant parmesan?
I absolutely love this project by Dutch muralist, Telmo Pieper. The series is adequately named "Kiddie Arts" since the artist took original drawings from his childhood and digitally recreated them to look as though they were photographed in real life. Pretty sure I envisioned all cars with that same abnormally long hood & tall body style.
The moment I found out about this pregnancy I made a vow NOT to become consumed by the overwhelming amount of baby advice out there... from books & on-line forums to words from all of the women who have blazed this trail before me. Well, that lasted an entire 2 weeks, if that. I should have realized that my interest about the whole subject would get the best of me. I mean, these changes were happening TO me.
Anyways, I think I've done a pretty good job of learning about the whole process from a vast array of sources. Today I'm sharing three of my favorite places to go on the web when searching for baby & motherhood advice.
I've followed the first one, Bleubird, for some time now. The little glimpses into her family's daily life are pretty sweet, and she's got a knack for picking out some wonderful products for the wee ones in your life.
The second one is fairly new. I found out about The Ma Books from an instagram feed that I follow, HouseinHabit. It's packed with honest advice...they're anti-advertising so you know your getting the writer's actual opinion. Pretty sure I'll be referring to this page often once our babe arrives.
Last, 100 Layer Cake-let is a spin off from the ever inspiring wedding site, 100 Layer Cake. I find myself scrolling here when I want to drift off in daydream world about our growing family...who wouldn't want to take part in some of these little parties? They're soooo cute!
Things have been pretty quiet over here at ...from6th. Mostly in part to the busy retail season, but also because my husband & I recently trekked up north to the same spot where we tied the knot almost one year ago. It was the perfect way to unwind since I'm entering the final "stretch" of my pregnancy. Our trip consisted of a lot of fishing, swimming, and dominos. Baby must have really enjoyed that relaxation because I feel as if she doubled in size while we were away! Have any of you taken some time off this summer?
