Every Sunday it's the same story: I have nothing to wear. The closet, in mere seconds, looks as if it were hit by a tornado. I tear it apart hoping that magically a long lost skirt has made it's way in there. No such luck. It's not a matter of fit (well, naturally I'm not into my pre-pregnancy clothes so those are totally off limits anyway), but hello who knew it was harder than h-e-double-hockey-sticks to find a long skirt? I mean seriously, when did they stop manufacturing them? I can't find them anywhere. Every Saturday I search high and low and always come home empty handed. I am in no position to be wearing short skirts and I can assure you the general public is in no position to see me in short skirts. So last Saturday, I took matters into my own hands and made my own. I wanted something long, almost to the floor, lightweight and full/flowey-ish. I went with a pale green & white stripped seersucker. Probaly not the best for a skirt, but it got the job done and I'm happy with it. It's not quite as full as I want, but I bought 3 other fabrics to make additional skirts with this week, so we'll see how those go. Oh and the flowers were a very quick and last minute addition. An embelishment, if you will.
And these, these little buggers are seriously prohibiting any future post-baby weight loss. I made them last week for a BBQ and thought I'd share. Chris loves peanut butter & chocolate. Be warned, I can assure you there is zero nutritional content in these bad boys (okay maybe a little from the peanut butter :)
1 c. butter
1 c peanut butter
2 c graham cracker crumbs
2 c powdered sugar
1 1/2 c semi-sweet choco chips
4 Tbsp peanut butter
Directions: Melt butter & 1 c peanut butter. Add graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar. Mix until well blended. Press into ungreased 9"x 13" pan.
