a lazy weekend

Those are the best, aren't they?

Other than taking the little pumpkin to a friend's birthday party Saturday morning we didn't have anything out of the usual planned for this weekend. Thank goodness! I needed some down time after the last couple of busy weeks we've had.

We enjoyed our lazy saturday by making this and completely cheated by using a can of store bought frosting. Which brings me to this thought...why don't they ever put enough frosting in a standard can to frost a layered cake??? Making a sheet cake just isn't the same. I like to see those layers stacked on top of each other with gooey frosting drizzled in between.

And doesn't everything taste better when served on a cute little plate? The little pumpkin thought it was hilarious we served CAKE on a CUPCAKE plate.

I was organizing our linen closet when it grew eerily silent, and all you mamas out there know that usually SILENCE = TROUBLE when you have little ones around. I tiptoed my way into the family room and this is how I found Hudson: And so it begins...the love affair between a boy and his TV remote. He entertained himself for a full 10 minutes never once looking up to see his crazy mama snapping pics of him on the floor. It was a good thing it was a lazy saturday because it gave us a chance to put this in place Yes, FINALLY a sofa replacement! I love the chocolate chenille but I'm not digging the matchy matchy pillows that came with it. Hmmm...I see a sewing project in my very near future.

And while we were at it, we also picked out this new table for our breakfast nook No more big high chair WOO HOO! We just strapped down our travel chair/booster seat and now we can all fit around the table much better. Hmmm...looking at that picture reminds me I need to make some muffins with those ripe bananas ASAP.

Oh, and see that old-new urn on the coffee table in the corner??? Yes, I must be a glutton for punishment. That's the same spot Hudson pulled my favorite pitcher from just the other week. We'll see how long that one lasts. At least there is no sentimental attachment to it whatsoever. I just found it while organizing the linen closet.

So that's it. Nothing too exciting around here. Getting ready to work on a May Day project with the little pumpkin while trying to keep Hudson from eating paper and glitter :) Gorgeous weather...lazy day... surrounded by loved ones...I love it!
Doesn't get much better than that.

My pillows are the same material as my couch-talk about matchy-matchy! I'd love to see what you do for pillows-I need some inspiration.

I have been working on pillows for Reese's room all weekend. Can't wait to see yours :) And they can be easy sewing projects too!
