For the Birthday Girl

We are attending a birthday party tonight for one of Clara's first friends...Miss Georgia! I can't believe that they are both one! I remember their first play date like it was yesterday. They had lots of fun getting to know each other...
Now they are both mobile and enjoying things like the aquarium and chewing on inflatable swords!
Georgia, we are so excited to celebrate your special day with you!

Georgia's mommy and daddy both went to Arizona University, so it's only fitting I made her this to show her school spirit and cheer on her Wildcats! I have made lots of skirted onesies, but have never made one with an empire waist style..

"Bear Down" was embroidered on the front of the dress as it is the official motto of UA. It also has a little ruffle around the bottom for that extra bit of femininity and fun! I really like the empire look and will be making more!
I also made the birthday girl this!
I love owls and made two other little birthday girls these a couple weeks ago. I used Ashley's owl download. I have since made my own owl modeled after the little owls on the fabric. I loved the flowers for eyes and their little wings. I make the owls larger/smaller depending on the size of the shirt.

I have been selling them in the shop, but really made the very first outfit with Georgia in mind. I saw these cute little guys at JoAnn fabrics and had to have them.
I paired the owl knit fabric with some stripes and polka-dots. I made a pair of mismatched leggings for those chilly Florida days. We do have a bit of cool weather in October and November (can't wait for those days).
I hope you have a fabulous birthday Miss Georgia! We love you!

Also, I am taking over the cooking in our house this week. I am not very good at it, but am giving it my best. My husband has been working really hard (at work)the past two weeks and I am trying to help out as much as I can. He usually does the grocery shopping, meal planning and cooking. I am pretty lucky I know...if dinner was always left up to me we would be eating a lot of Mac and Cheese! Anyway, he enjoys it so I go ahead and let him do it:) Who am I to deprive him of that...right?

He is a really good cook, so I fear that I can't live up to his expectations. But I think he enjoyed tonight's meal...

or at least he was nice and said he did:)

We had crab cakes with spring salad and apples. I found the recipe in Food and Wine magazine. I didn't follow it exactly because I couldn't find one of the ingredients...creme fraiche...which I later found out is basically sour cream. I will have to learn some of these fancy food names. I think it went off without a hitch. I didn't burn them under the broiler and it tasted good too:)

The meals I have planned for the rest of the week are...
Skirt Steak with Wedge Salad
Taco Salad
Black Beans and Rice

Who knows maybe I will become the permanent chef in our house!?!
Do you have any good recipes for a novice chef?

Hope your week is off to a great start!
