The Little Monster Is...

Well almost everyone I know voted boy except for my sister and my mom.  This is what I had guessed here.

Looks like this little monster is gonna wear pigtails.
It is a GIRL!!!
I guess I will never go off my motherly intuition again :)


Boy Parts or Girl Parts???

Today Paul and I get to find out the gender of our little Gremlin growing.  About 3-4 weeks ago I had a dream I was at the ultrasound and it was a boy.  I guess we shall see if I have any motherly intuition or not.

Place your vote now if you have one.

PS. I have something tricky up my sleeve to tell all the parents the gender since no one lives by us so stay tuned, I'll announce later today.

Homemade Witch Hat

My sister called me today asking me if i knew how to make a witch hat as she and my other sisters and mother are going to Witch A Palooza at Gardner Village in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is a fun experience to get the ladies together, let your inner witch out for the night, watch great dinner theater (This year will be Taming of the Brew), and admire some amazing Halloween Decorations.
Witchapalooza Music Dinner Theater

Many of the women wear impressive witch hats that you can purchase for about $40-80, but I say why pay when you can create on your own brilliant witch hat.

I went to pinterest and the web for inspiration

Here is what I suggest you purchase to make a great witch hat

Hit up your dollar store or Michaels or Hobby Lobby (don't forget the 40% off coupon)

-basic black witch hat (or another color if you like)
-tulle (orange, purple, green, black)
-feathers (I like the black feathers personally)
- plastic spiders
-wire (black if you can find it)
-anything else you can think of (spider webs, toy bats, etc.)

Get out your glue gun or super glue and get a creating.  You have to remember to keep the thing light so don't load that sucker up with pumpkins or heavy spiders.  The wire is incredibly important to wrap around the inside of the top to make it stick straight up or curl around like so
For a cute idea if you aren't a hat wearer I found this on the great and talented Martha Stewart website, a Bat Headband.  Directions can be found here.

Maybe if I am feeling extra creative I will rig one up for you guys to see how I did it.

Recipe Fail & Prenatal Yoga

So I guess my idea to have others share their favorite recipe via their blog address was a major fail.  It could mean a couple of things

1. No one reads this blog so it really didn't stand a chance to succeed
2. My readers also don't know how to cook
3. No one cared

I can take it though. It is fine, Paul will just continue to eat the crap I cook for him or the gourmet food he cooks when he has time.
I am heading to Prenatal yoga in like 2 seconds and I feel weird every time the teacher tells me to place one hand on my heart and the other on my baby and then send the baby loving energy. My eyes are supposed to be closed, but I keep opening one eye to see if others are actually participating and usually the women all look so blissfully happy rubbing their bellies.  Wonder what is my problem?

Have a great weekend.

PS. I posted on Charlie's blog about my first fall sighting so check it out.
