linking up my weekly cell phone pics with jeannett again! if you’re on instagram, i’m thepleatedpoppy!
we started our saturday morning with a hike with friends – so much fun!
sean and lily have been way into making bread lately. each time they search around for a new recipe. i’ve pinned a couple of them on my pinterest food board, but i don’t have them all.
lily is a resistent reader, but reading along with audio books seems to be clicking for her! she was listening to the swiss family robinson here.
santa brought lily a baby alive that sips and tinkles. after wetting the one and only diaper it came with, we decided to make our own. she made a paper pattern, traced it on an old towel, and i sewed on some velcro and some extra padding.
one of my new years resolutions was to be a better friend. giving cookies is friendly, right?
super cute packaging from garnish made it even better!
after a long homeschool day, i gave myself an hour break to finish up this project before dinner. i forget how rewarding creating for my self is, rather than for sale.
apparently most of my instagram friends are from central oregon. when i posted this pic of our homemade yumm bowls, i had more questions/comments than i could answer! background: our good friends live in bend, oregon, and they made us yumm bowls at home, copying a local restaurant, cafe yumm. they had the special yumm sauce, and we didn’t, so we had to do without and it was still yummy! here’s the basics: rice, meat (we used diced pork tenderloin), beans (black or pinto), cheese, avocado, olives, cilantro, sour cream, and yumm sauce, if you have it.
i had a little project to do at school. my parents and i made this huge wood piece to cover some switch boards on the wall, and i wanted to dress it up with our school logo and a quote or something.
this is only partway done, but i’m loving it so far! i love the bright color contrasting with the rough wood.
and i’m throwing in this pic just because it makes me happy. on our way home from oregon we passed this truck place that had rainbow colored trucks! red, orange, yellow, lime green, grass green, light blue, royal blue, and purple. how cool is that?! if i owned a truck company, i’d totally do this!
