Mom says she was full of non-stop energy
and excitement her entire life.
Last week I bought myself a gift--an apron with a retro robot print from the absolutely divine etsy shop Boojiboo. Amy already owns three of this gifted lady's aprons, two with skulls and one with cupcakes, and they are all adorable! Boojiboo's designs are so feminine and flattering and her choice in patterns is terrific. I can't imagine where the heck she finds some of these fabrics! For a few months I've had my eye on the retro robot and the classic horror movie prints. One day last week they were both in the shop, and before I could even click on the 50s horror print with its wonderful Frankenstein and Dracula ghouls--it was sold! I snapped up the robot print as quickly as I could, as Ryan tried to purchase the exact same apron as a gift for me after I shared the link with him. When thwarted he bought these astronaut glasses instead from the Bread and Badger--another shop I can't get enough of. What can I say? He's a sweetheart.
Baking is my favorite hobby and being a clutz comes naturally, so believe me when I tell you I spill a lot of flour. This apron will see a lot of action in our kitchen.
It arrived today and I wasted no time tying its lovely yellow polka dotted straps around my waist. As I stepped back from the mirror I immediately smiled and said to no one in particular, "We're good to ourselves." I think Nana Irene would have approved.
