I love this swimsuit!!! I took a
Sewing class Thursday night and learned how to make this. I love, love, love it! The pattern and instructions are on the current issue of Sew Beautiful magazine. It is really simple to make.

It took me about 5 hours to sew. This does not include the time it took me to transfer the pattern and cut out my fabric. Let me know if you make one too!

I FINALLY got to finish sewing my nursing cover, and I LOVE IT!  I can't wait to use it with Brantley...only 9 1/2 more weeks until I am due!  For those of you who are curious, I followed the instructions provided by Angel at TaDa! Creations. It was sooooo simple to make!

Thanks, Angel!

Butterfinger Pie


My best friend, Kelli, told me about this easy-peasy, delicious pie. You can't mention a dessert to this prego right now without me thinking I absolutely have to have it!
Soooooo, while I was grocery shopping today, I happened to pick up the 4 ingredients just in case I wanted to make it. Well, to be honest, I picked up enough ingredients to make 2 pies. I knew I would love it! Don't judge. I told you I am pregnant.

The four ingredients are:
-Graham cracker crust
-1 1/2 pkgs of the small butterfingers-crushed
-1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
-small tub of Cool Whip

Mix the last three ingredients and put it in the crust. Chill and serve!

Thanks, Kelli, for sharing this wonderful dessert. Madison had fun helpig me make it.

What a Great Day!

The day is not even half over and it has been great! My niece, Sophia, is here to play. After a little playing inside, we headed to pick up my sewing machine. (It had to be cleaned.) While we were there I signed up for class to learn how to make those adorable bikinis for little girls. Yay! I can't wait!!!

Next, we headed to Krispy Kreme for our free doughnut in honor of National Doughnut Day.

Then, we stopped at Subway to pick up our lunch which we will eat later. Yay for $5 footlongs!

Now the girls are swimming in the pool. has been a great, morning!

Easy Summer Meals: Meal #2

Corn-on-the-cob, how do I love thee!  Let me count the ways. I could eat fresh corn-on-the cob every day!  This meal was super easy.  Prep your corn and slice the squash.

The menu: pork chops, corn-on-the cob, and squash. You will see some fresh green beans...ignore those.  I was trying it out....FAILED! If anyone knows how to grill green beans, please let me know.

I put the corn on the grill first. Turn it slightly every couple of minutes.  I drizzled a little butter and Kosher salt on the cobs every once in a while. Be careful, the flames will try to get you when you do this! Season one side of the chops with seasoning salt and garlic salt.  Place the seasoned side down.  Season the backside. Place squash on the grill and season. Turn as needed.

P.S.  I don't always cook pork chops.  The package had 6 in it. Three for one meal, and three more for a meal a couple of days later.

I PASSED my test!

Read my previous post if you don't know what I am talking about. :) Have a great day! I know I will!!!

Glucose test

I am sitting at the doctor's office reading this book. I was obsessed witht his book when I was pregnant with my first child, but I have barely touched it during this pregnancy.

It's notthat I am not reading anything. Now that I have an iPhone I have this neat app that gives me a little bit of info every week. The app is calle Baby Bump.
I am waiting to take my glucose test. I really hope that I pass it the first time! I did not pass it the first go 'round with Madison. I had to return for the 3-4 hour test, which is NO FUN! Prayers have been prayed and my toes are crossed (I can't cross my fingers and type at the same time.) I'll let you know how it goes.
