Martha....eat your heart out....

or your scrumptious apple pies...that always turn out better than mine do....I swear you don't really bake anything at all...I truly believe I have cracked the conspiracy...which is you have a gaggle (yes gaggle) of oompa loompas...or rejects from Top chef....hiding in your home in Connecticut or Maine...(I don't keep up)...I'm too busy trying to be the next Rachel Ray of Baby food......or you martha...there...I said it....I'm trying to be you....


and I think....maybe I succeeded......to the level...that I maybe even bested you....ha....burn......how bout them apples...(since you do have an entire orchard tucked away in your backyard)....I don't even believe it's yours....I bet you really just lease it....seriously...who has an entire orchard...I bet the birds sing like they do in Snow White too.......in your little la la land ...that really doesn't exist.....


My Fab Find for this Friday....is.....Drum Roll PLease......A fabulous...well constructed Birds nest...that was unfortunately abandoned sometime between...oh spring and now....I think they must have defaulted on their loan to the bank...and with the last of the leaves finally having dropped....I noticed out my window today while trying to be good and actually clean my house...instead of sitting here with you...all my friends......sorry...it won't happen again...

and....for some reason...the 4 year old that still resides in my head...decided that she had to covet this mass of twigs and mudd...and bird spit.....so in it came...and sat on my counter....Pooh wanting to eat it....the dogs wanting to eat it....I was the only creature in the house who DIDN'T want to ingest the thing....(too much fiber).....and I'm allergic to bird spit....


Then....around the time Take Home Chef comes on...cause you know I'll drop anything to watch a good looking man...actually stir a spoon in a pot.....the energy efficient light in my head turned on...(just doing my part),,,,and I said...I'll make a beautiful centerpiece out of it....


So....as I'm scrounging around my garage...for design elements...otherwise known as useless crap....I found a flower pot...I didn't use this spring....some potpourri that someone I know regifted...which I was going to regift this season...someone is going to be SO bummed they didn't get that....


And VOILA....my masterpiece...which I am completely surprised to say...looks pretty darn good....I was so proud...I actually decided to write a post about it....and share it with you all...and Martha of course....



So Martha....at this rate...I just may get my own show...my own magazine...my own orchard...and some oompa loompas to bake my pasteries.....ain't that sweet.....


Oh...and before I forget....and so much more importantly....


Pooh celebrated his 8 month Birthday on the 19th....Yeah...another milestone....doesn't it remind you of when you were in highschool and you had to celebrate every months anniversary with you boyfriend/girlfriend.....some like me...never get over that...(repressed feelings)....

and every month...I have to take a picture...to immortalize....that special...unbirthday..birthday....and...I always need another good reason to film my little ham-hock....

so I present...Pooh at 8 months......sorry there was no cake....just more homemade baby food....


And a little side note....he did just do that pose on his own....he knows how to work the camera....my little ham-hock....

I like the bird's nest in the flower pot. Happy 8 months, cute baby!

I remember month anniversaries with boyfriends! I also remember my mother kinda scoffing at that. I hope I scoff at the silliness of it all, at least out loud.

Why does Martha keep showing us how to do stuff? I really don't think she wants us to be better than her!
