tuesday randomness via instagram

Hey there!!  It's Tuesday...you know what that means...Instagram!

I love to cook, but I can never find an apron that fits quite right.  I spotted this one at Anthropologie and loved it.

This is how it looks a bit farther back:

I love it.  And, yes I took this pic in Reid's room - he has the only full length mirror in the house.  How ridiculous is that?!  I literally run down to his room after I get ready in the morning to check my outfit before running out the door.  This is a problem that could easily be fixed.  It's on my list...

And did you notice my new iPhone case?

It's from Plum Street Prints.  Love their stuff.  My last case was from them too.  Same design, just a different color monogram.  I'm boring like that.
{PS I really do wear my wedding ring on the left hand, but this was taken in a mirror, so it looks reversed...}

Mark and I went out to dinner one night last weekend and our table had such a pretty view of the boats.  When I busted out my phone, Mark was like "What are you doing?"  Umm, instagram...of course!

I am loving this new candle from Anthro...Volcano by Capri Blue.  Mark bought it for me.  Sweet hubs that he is.  It smells really amazing.  Fresh and not too overpowering.  I put it in a big glass jar with some beach sand. 

I totally stole this idea from the merchandising people at Anthro.  Thanks merchandising people!

I have been shopping around for a new duvet...ours is pretty tired.  This one is really pretty...

Beautiful desserts from a local bakery.  I love dessert.

Here is the reason I wear cheap glasses!  Ha!  But, isn't he so adorable?!

Grant loves to be a big helper and he loves to cook.  And, he really is super helpful and interested in every step. 

We made Giada's Lemon Ricotta Biscuits.  They are really light and fluffy and they are quick to make so it's totally doable when you are cooking with kids.

You can tell by the fact that my cookbook is falling apart that this recipe has been well loved!  These biscuits would be a perfect addition to Easter brunch if you're hosting!

I liked this lantern arbor at Pottery Barn.  Mark totally scoped it out.  I think it would be fairly easy to DIY one.

A box of Red Velvet Cupcakes from a really amazing bakery by my parents house.  Sugar is my weakness.

Other random notes...

12 in 12 for April has started....I am trying to run every day for 30 days.  I'll keep you posted.

My parents took the kids for a few days over Spring Break.  It's been so quiet...and so clean.  No lego's or matchbox cars on the floor.  And I actually slept til 8:00 yesterday!  Whoop!  I do miss kissing on them though.   Those babies are coming home today and that makes me happy. 

I have the itch to paint some more furniture around here.  I think our bedroom set is going to be my next victim/project.


Have a great Tuesday everyone!
