started saying no and then started sharing some of my favorite recipes that my family found on Pinterest and really enjoyed.
real honest about that mess! We also celebrated Weston's fifth birthday with an airplane party that was so much fun! I also started the month off by talking about why we are called to create. It was such a fun and busy month!
special pie in honor of pi day! It was delicious!
living room makeover and gave some history behind the house!
We also took some time to for an adventure to Yosemite before it got too busy and we wanted to see the Falls at their fullest. It was beautiful and the perfect day trip!
cake involved, too. Can't leave that out. It's chocolate, which sounds amazing as I type this!
sugared jam cake!
cinnamon chocolate chip pancakes and shared how I make pancakes easy on busy mornings with my favorite pan! This pan has been a lifesaver for me since Ethan started school, and even more so with both boys in school. I'm kind of sad that Crate and Barrel doesn't sell them, but I've heard you can still find them on amazon or wilton's website.
soccer party and my husband got super into it by turning the backyard into a soccer field. It was a fun evening of delicious food, family, and friends, and lots of soccer!
Banana Chocolate Espresso Muffins! These were delicious and they gave me the perfect excuse to buy some espresso powder I had been eyeing for months! I celebrated my birthday by getting pampered and hanging out the my family. I also wrote 37 things about myself because it sounded like fun! I got to share about my love of street tacos and my problem with finishing projects.
And with that, the year was over! It was a great year with challenges and adventure. It wasn't perfect, things didn't always work out the way I thought they should, but it was a good year. I grew as a baker (I made a lot of bread and had an almost successful batch of macarons!). I stepped out of my comfort zone and grew in my relationship with God. I am excited for 2017.
