this little piggy went to the market...

...and wouldn't that piggy have looked even cuter wearing this: Sorry piggy, but I know who will look CuTE and have LOtS of fun wearing that sweet apron!

And no, I didn't make that one. It's baby steps around here folks, baby steps! Found it at Quaint & Quirky, a tiny little shop on etsy.

I heart aprons. And you know what else I heart? This: Which makes me think of my mama since today is her birthday and she's been eyeing one of these. They come in all sorts of fun colors. Which is your favorite? HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO AN AMAZING WOMAN I AM BLESSED TO CALL MOM. I LOVE YOU! ...and yes, your Tres Leches Cake is on its way! :)

Oh my! Of course I love the apron, but why did Kitchen Aid have to come out with an aqua mixer/blender/hand mixer? So. Need. Them. Now, how to make them work into my grocery budget. LOL

That Martha robin's egg blue mixer is the one I've been waiting and waiting to get, but somehow everyone but me keeps forgetting that I want it (and it's been at least two years now). I also love the golden yellow one.

Your mama is so lucky to have someone to make her tres leches! YUM!!!

They remind me of sweet Easter eggs! I love my Kitchen Aid mixer! My parents bought one for me Christmas 2008. It is stainless. Have you ever seen the show - "How It's Made"? One of their episodes was how they make Kitchen Aid mixers. I was enthralled. The care that is put into making just one - they are worth the price!

I, too, want that aqua mixer!!!! I've been asking Eric for one for years, but I'm glad I didn't get it sooner because I would have def. missed out on that color. I want to make homemade bread and pizza dough with mine ... one day ... when I get one!!!

Leave it to Martha to come up with THE perfect color for the iconic KitchenAid mixer!!! I love it! The price...not so much :O

Angel~ when you figure out how to squeeze that in to the grocery budget, let me know LOL!

Susan~ Time to cut out a huge photo of that mixer and tape it to the refrigerator...Mother's Day is just right around the corner ;) And the buttercup one is my mom's favorite :)

Amanda~ Lucky you!!! What color? You know Lance is obsessed with those shows! He can watch them for hours ;)

Cori~ I keep looking everywhere I know to find a "deal" on that aqua mixer. But so far, no takers. Maybe I can put all my earnings from the upcoming Reruns sale toward that mixer!

Yes! I've decided it is going to be the buttercup one... at least that's what I'm thinking at this moment...
Thanks for the Tres Leches cake. It tastes YUUUMMMMYY!And many thanks for my birthday gift. You really know me, dear daughter of mine. I really appreciate all the effort and love that you put into making the cake and also into helping Grace with her beautiful card for me. I loved my "at home Birthday party. Wasn't it great?
Love, Mom/Noonie

We are building Reese a play kitchen for her birthday and painting it to match her room incase we want to put it there(after the rocker gets taken out). I wanted to make an apron to go with it along with some hand towels and oven mit(maybe). I need some apron inspiration and thought there was no better place then your blog :) (BTW...there are alot of post when I searched apron...lol) I came across this post and can't believe this apron!! Would this not be perfect!!! I also like the apron from Tiny Sprouts...might have to whip up teo...hehe!!!
