Rollin' in style

As if I didn't already suffer enough from the pregnancy side effect of excessive baking, Anthro has rolled out (teehee) this beauty that I'm sure make whatever you bake taste like rainbows. And at $24, it would also make a great gift!

Also drooling over this today. Forget George and his velvet, I want to drape myself in cable knit this season (or drape myself on, as it were in this case).

P.S. What's up with Tiger, yo?

Baby News

Yeah, there isn't any. If my belly button is any indication, it's long since signaled that baby is done. The doctor predicted we'd meet her last weekend but it looks like she's decided to hang out a while longer! She's actually full-term now but not overdue, so I really can't complain. However, in crafting news, there's much to report.

In between me ogling all the beautiful holiday clothes out this season I still can't fit in to, Tim and I had a quiet Thanksgiving and I finished this fantastic craft project - baby closet size dividers. I haven't quite figured out how to incorporate these into an adult closet (maybe color themed?) but they are fantastic for baby (and would make a GREAT baby shower gift). Sadly, the pictures don't do them justice!
Directions (and other cool crafts) here.

Kathy also hosted a fantastic shower for me and she knows me well enough to plan crafts in (adorable baby onesies)! It was such a wonderful, wonderful day!

Next time I check in, will hopefully be of a cute little baby girl in ridiculously cute little girl clothes!

It's a Pants-Off, Dance-Off

No, it's actually not. In fact, it's definitely a PANTS ON affair...but fun nonetheless, I promise!

For the third year in a row, my department is hosting a dinner, dancing and live music event to benefit the girls of the Settlement Home. The Settlement Home is a local orphanage and our goal is to give 17 of those girls a holiday. Right now, we've raised enough to support only three. They ask for the simplest things... even at 16 and 17, a lot of them would like tweety bird sheet sets or twilight posters. They do not have much to call their own and the joy we can bring to them at this particularly tough time to be without family, is immense.

Yes, we have a crappy date this year. It's a Monday, and it's the Monday after Thanksgiving. But if you can attend, we'd love to see you there. Amazing local band Del Castillo will be playing and they rocked the house last year! El Sol y La Luna will be serving delicious food.

If you can't make it, you can make a donation OR it would even be a huge gift to pass on this message to your networks. We do not want to disappoint these girls this year!

Details below:

Join hosts Keller Williams University and KWCares for the 3rd annual benefit concert supporting Austin’s own The Settlement Home for Children.

This year’s holiday event will be held on November 30th at El Sol y La Luna (600 E. 6th. St.) and will feature a concert by Latin rockers Del Castillo and a scrumptious Tex-Mex appetizer buffet.

Tickets are just $25 each for an amazing show. Purchase for your tickets today at If you can’t make it, you can still bring holiday cheer to the Settlement Home girls when you make a donation.

We hope to see you there!
