Wednesday Blog Hops

I've been really slacking at blog hopping lately, so here's where you can find me today!  In other news:

I've baked three lasagnas today, cleaned up the disaster of a kitchen that followed the assembly of lasagna, unclogged a toilet, changed three diapers, done two loads of laundry, made a special birthday breakfast for my husband, froze two lasagnas, unclogged a sink and saved the world. 
     Ok, I really didn't save the world, but it kind of feels like I did :) Maybe a little?

   Still to go: Return library books, buy stamps, make a salad, mail out christmas cards and put away laundry.  Enjoy lasagna! Then put Emma to bed and enjoy some quiet time with my 28 year old husband and a cheap bottle of wine.  Simple things, right?

Happy Birthday Adam! I love you.

DIY Playkitchen!

Before reading any further you should go back and read this post, so you're all caught up :)
I apologize for taking so very long to post the second installment.

But if you can remember that far back, this is what our nightstand looked like before we got a hold of it and transformed it into a playkitchen for the peanut!

And this is what it looks like now:

Ta Da!!!

A real faucet with moveable knobs!
A "sink" made out of a stainless steel bowl,
Burners made out of popscicle sticks,
and stove dials that also move!

A sweet little chalkboard on one side to write out menus,

And a shelf that I made in woodshop approximately 100 years ago, on the other side! 

And inside we have a cookie cooling rack for an oven shelf!

A clock with hands that move,
a hook for hanging potholders or utensils,

And other pretty little details! 

So what do you think?  Is it an improvement?
Peanut loves it, and has spent many hours since we've given it to her, playing hostess.  She is constantly making cookies, or soup or pizza and serving it to anyone who comes into the house!

So all in all, we're pretty please with the result, and I think it was a pretty fantastic early birthday present!
