What I Made.

This past Saturday I attended a baby shower for my good friend Suzanne. I had fun making this onesie and bib for Esther!

(I think this picture might be blurry. Either that or I need to change my contacts.)
I think the pear my be my best applique to date.  That little leaf was a bit of a challenge, and it turned out so cute! I'm proud.

BFF Lauren shared this spin on chicken salad with me on Saturday. It is seriously delicious. I'm sure it has a name. And I'm sure I could find it on Pinterest, but I'm not going to try. I'll just call it Avocado Chicken Salad (even though it is so much more than that!).

Avocado Chicken Salad

Shredded chicken
(I used canned chicken...don't judge.)
Green onion
lime juice

There weren't any specifics when it came to amounts, so I just added as needed. I also threw in a can of garbanzo beans for fun.

I ate it with pita chips.

Steve said it would be good as a dip. I bet if you crushed the beans a little and added white onion and tomatoes, it would be like a salsa.  And Lauren suggested black beans instead of the garbanzos...

So many possibilities...

A Monday letter.

Dear Sergio Ramos, I really like your haircut. I mean, I liked your long hair too, and your cute headband, but this short hair is good.

Dear Kay Arthur, you are wearing me out in this study of Genesis. I'm sure if I worked on it day by day instead of cramming a week's worth of work into a few hours I wouldn't be so stressed. I'll try to do better.

Dear Amazon, thank you for suggesting I try the Cloud reader app for Kindle. Next time, can you make it work? That little circle is still going round and round...

Dear girls, thank you for finally learning the joy of an afternoon nap. Let's work on making it last more than an hour. And enough with the dirty diapers.

Dear summer, thank you for feeling more like a warm Spring day. And that bright blue sky was pretty nice too.

My next movie.

I'm not sure I've ever been so emotional over a movie trailer.

Oh.  My.
