DIY Fun Fabric Bibs

2016 April 26

My little guy loves to eat, it’s pretty adorable. So, making homemade baby food and feeding the twins has become  one of my favorite things at the moment! You should see how many bibs I go through…sheesh. So when I spotted these simple white cotton bibs at the craft store I thought, I could jazz those up! I always need more bibs. *correction at end of post.

DIY Fun Fabric Bibs

Here’s how I did it…

Supplies You Need:

White cotton bibs with pocket- I used this one
Cotton fabric
Liquid Stitch
paint brush or foam brush
scissorspaper & pen- for template

DIY Fun Fabric Bibs

Prep: Start by pre-washing bibs and fabric separately.
Step 1: Cut out a piece of paper to the size of the front pocket. (This will be the template)
Step 2: Use paper template to cut out piece of fabric the size of the bib front.
Step 3: Apply Liquid Stitch to bib front and paint on with brush.
Step 4: Press fabric onto glue making sure all edges are securely glued down.
Step 5: Follow packaged directions for drying & washing.

Now let’s eat some sweet potatoes!

*CORRECTION: After washing these bibs the liquid stitch did not hold up as well as I would have liked. I’m still looking for an alternate no-sew solution! Any suggestions?

Raspberry Rose Margaritas

2016 April 22
by Leah Bergman

Happy weekend, friends! I have such a delicious cocktail recipe for you to try: Raspberry Rose Margaritas! As you all know I love a good margarita and after making this sorbet last week I thought…this would be the perfect base for frozen drinks.

Raspberry Rose Margarita

It’s already packed with fruit, frozen, and almost creamy it’s so smooth. All you need is a splash of tequila, a few squeezes of fresh lime juice, and of course salt.

So, are sorbet margaritas already a thing? If not, they are now! The best part, you can always buy Carmela’s Raspberry Rose Sorbet if you don’t have the time to make it from scratch. That just means margaritas pronto!

Breakfast in Bed with Boll & Branch

2016 April 20

Last week Jason asked me what I would like to do for Mother’s Day. “Do you want to go out-of-town? Go to the spa? Go to a nice dinner?” My reply, “Honestly, I just want to sleep.” Says the Mom of twin 7 month old babies.

But really, nothing and I mean NOTHING is more luxurious to a new Mom than sleep. And I would wager that goes for any and all Moms out there, am I right?

So when Boll & Branch sent me a glorious new set of 100% organic cotton sheets, duvet, and throw for Mother’s Day, the clouds parted and a herald of sleep angels came down singing! I kid of course, but I was super excited to sleep on them. Few things are better than fluffy white sheets and duvet. Ah, memories of pre-baby sleep rolling around in my mind.

Anywhoo…in the spirit of sleep and Mother’s Day dreams, I also dreamt up a recipe that I would love to have Mother’s day morning for breakfast in bed. More like what I will make and have Jason reheat and serve me in bed, ha!

Buttermilk Waffles with Berry Syrup

Hey, you pick your battles and I got the sheets. Buttermilk waffles piled high with homemade berry syrup, vanilla whipped cream, and topped with fresh berries. The angels are singing again…can you hear them?

Buttermilk Waffles with Berry Syrup

So sweet and delicious, you might not even mind the babies sneaking in to cuddle with you in your fluffy new white sheets. So, what are your Mother’s Day plans? Breakfast in bed perhaps? I wish all of you lots and lots of sleep…and waffles.
