It's pretty much the Birchbox for mommies and babies.
Maybe Baby C will be sweet and I'll have to treat him me to this!
(and if you don't know what Birchbox is, then I have some serious 'splaining to do!)
You basically sign up for a monthly subscription (as low as $21/month for 6 months)
and receive a cute little box full of the "so hot right now" baby/tot products.
I google image searched "citrus lane" and here's some examples of people's boxes:
So cute right?!
I think this would make a unique shower gift for my gf's who are preggo too!
And besides, who doesn't love getting a little package on their doorstep every once in a while?!
Every year, Mr. C and I alternate between families for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
(wish we had a teleporter so we could be with both!)
This year we were in Weatherford with Mr. C's sweet family.
And oh my gosh, did I eat too much...as per usual on Thanksgiving.
One of the culprits were my blue cheese puffs. (recipe below)
We also watched TCU beat UT!!! GO FROGS!
And I got to spend a whole Friday funday shopping with
Auntie Julia and "Ninjie"!
(Mr. C's Sister and Mom)
And now for THE blue cheese puffs:
(these are a real crowd pleaser, I promise)
(makes about 40-45 puffs)
(Almost) One loaf whole wheat bread, sliced, cut into 2-3" rounds
(I use a mini biscuit cutter or shot glass turned upside-down)
1 c. mayo
2) 8 oz packages of cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. fresh chives, chopped
1 c. crumbled blue cheese
1 tbsp. dried minced onion
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste
Paprika, sprinkled as a garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all above ingredients, except for paprika, in small bowl. Cut 3-4 rounds out of each bread slice and place on a baking sheet. (No need to spray with non-stick cooking spray; but you could line the baking sheet with foil for easier clean up) Top each bread round with approximately 1 tbsp. of the cheese mixture. (Does not have to be perfect!) Bake for 12-15 minutes- sprinkle with paprika and serve immediately. Enjoy!
*You can make these in advance-Once bread is topped with cheese mixture, cover with plastic wrap/foil and refrigerate until ready to bake.
The rocker is finally here!
(Baby C and I are doing a little jig!)
By the way, I think as part of marriage counselling
couples should have to put together a piece of furniture.
There was some light assembly required for this rocker
and Mr. C and I put our patience to the test. :)
I must say, I'm liking the way his little room is coming together...
just a few more things to cross off my list:
(in this order, I hope)
