Baking Day

Today is baking day!!  Tomorrow we are going to Disney World, and I thought we'd bring along some homemade treats for snacks and breakfasts.  It's more economical and healthier... and I get a good excuse to spend a day in the kitchen :)  Here's what we're making today:

Sour Cream Banana Bread (2 loaves)
Apple Bread (2 loaves)

Right now the banana bread is in the oven and I'm going and I'm going to do some laundry.

My (imaginary) Cutting Garden

When I grow up, I want a great cutting garden surrounding my home. I love the idea of planting and tending, so that when the time is right, I can go outside with a wide-brimmed hat and clippers, and cut beautiful bouquets right from my yard at a moment's notice. Until then, the local Stop-n-Shop flower department will suffice... I picked up these flowers for our bathroom this week. They didn't translate well on my camera phone (my camera needs to be fixed... again...) but I'm really happy with my selection. I have no idea what they're called, but I think of them as my "Dr. Seuss" flowers.

Hopefully, Matt and I can start some container gardens this month... I don't have much experience gardening- anyone have any ideas or advice?

Favorite New Top

Let's face it: I love to be comfortable. Seriously. Love. The Comfort.

And, I also love to look pulled together and cute, which can be difficult for a stay-at-home-wife because most of my day is spent, well, in the home. I can (and have) gone the entire day in my sweats, only to change just minutes before Matt gets home.

So, when I find a piece that is (a) soft and comfy; (b) cute and stylish, I nearly keel over in excitement. I purchased this Ella Moss top while in Seattle a few weeks ago. It looks great on and it's soft as can be. I know I will wear this all spring and summer, and therefore didn't mind the absurd price tag :)

I have no idea who this girl is...

Laundry Shute

These are the stairs to the basement (which is 90% finished; there is no ceiling...).  Our washer/dryer live down there; and consequently, our stairs have turned into a make-shift laundry shute:

Look closely and you'll see that I've thrown clothing, towels, boxes, buckets, and wrapping paper.  It is creeping half-up the stairs.  Not so organized or pretty... need to work on this.
