Fruit Salad is Too Chunky

I found this video the other day, via Natalie Hill. I've seen other videos from Improv Everywhere (surprise wedding reception, mp3 experiment, subway, etc.) but I think this may be my absolute favorite.

The Perfect Fall Dessert

{image via Rookie Cookie}

I saw a post over on Rookie Cookie, for Baked Apples with Granola Pecan Streusel. The picture looked so delicious, I made them tonight! And guess what? They were just as delicious as the picture looked. And easy too! The ingredients are pretty simple....most things you probably already have on hand. I'm not embarrassed to admit that I did have to look up what a pastry blender was though. It's this, in case you didn't know either.

Don't worry...you probably got it as a wedding present, and if not, you can get one for like 2 dollars and then feel great because you now own/know/used a pastry blender! I followed the exact recipe, except I threw in chocolate chips because dessert is not dessert without chocolate for me! You can check out the recipe here. It's the perfect fall dessert. Next on the dessert list...whoopie pies! And yes, I'm being serious. Gotta love PA!

Allo Allo

I've had a bunch of links saved of things I've loved recently. I'm finally getting around to sharing them. First, I spotted these greeting cards on Oh Happy Day.

Instead of using them as cards, I'm going to frame/hang them in a corner in the office. For only $3.95 a piece, they're a great, inexpensive way to get some art. Check out GreetQ, for other cards.

I've seen several upholstered headboards these days, and they've been tempting me to try it, perhaps in the baby room. I'm considering keeping a bed in there for reading, sleeping, guests, etc.

Grace is nice enough to include complete instructions on how to upholster the headboard.

You MUST check out this room makeover for these little girls. She gives some tutorials on some of what she did in this room, including the comforter and the window covering. There are lots of other pictures. I love that this room suits little girls without being to "cutesy" or "kiddish". There's no princess bedding, but I think the girls probably feel like princesses in the room.

And lastly, here are some recent pics. The day after we flew into Cancun (which I should put up some pics soon), I acquired a belly. It was literally overnight.

We are halfway through this pregnancy! I am currently 20 weeks and feeling great. I love feeling her move and kick. Yes, "she" is indeed a she.

We had our ultrasound Monday, and we saw three little lines this time confirming her girlness. We didn't get any great shots of her though because she was in the STRANGEST position the whole time. She was upside down, with her feet completely over her head. The picture below is supposed to be a profile shot. This was the best we could do, even though most of her face is obstructed by her body. Hey, as long as she's content... I tried to label so you could try to make sense of what is going on.

We are also halfway done with the office. We painted the walls last weekend (see above pic) and picked up some new furniture and light fixtures. We just need to wallpaper, finish the clock and add a few art prints and I'll be ready to show off the new office. We're loving it already!

We're off to Cancun! Sadly, I still do not have my camera fixed so all you will see are my crummy shots. Can't wait to be in the warm sun again. Fall/Winter came a bit too abruptly here in Provo!
