Bra and Panty cookies

This summer has been the summer of babies! Out of our close group of friends, which has about 9 couples, 5 of us are expecting!  ( all due within 3 months)    Because of the babies, or maybe its because our husbands also all turned 30 this summer, We just don't party like we used to!

Our friend Brad had his bachelor party this weekend. Knowing our husbands don't ( are not allowed) to party like they used to.  I decided to make these cookies for his BBQ.  ( After e-mailing between the girls for a day, we decided that a little scandalous cookie would not hurt anything)

I made a simple shortbread recipe, cut it in 1/2. I added lemon juice to one bowl for flavoring and chocolate to the other.

I used a heart cookie cutter for the outline.

I decorated the cookies with these.  These were really easy to use. I usually would make my own frosting, but I am moving in 2 weeks and most of my stuff is packed away.

These are the finished product! ( In my next life I am going to become an underwear designer)

Modge Podge Flower Pots

Look! a Pregnant Lady's perfect Saturday afternoon! a Modge Podge project and a Decaf Coffee Frappe!

But really, I made this for my mother in law in the beginning of July, and Mothers day was in May. Of course I can say that I thought of the idea in May, It just didn't happen right away.  

My In law's live on a wonderful organic Haven in Iowa!  They grow beautiful organic vegetables, they have fruit trees and fruit bushes, and they also have a wide variety of pretty plants all over their property!

I saw someone in " Blogland" during the spring who made Modge Podge Flower pots. I wanted to make them for my mother in law. Since her outdoor space is very  natural, I wanted to decorate them that way. 

I found some " natural" looking scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby.  and Modge Podged them onto the flower pots.

I did find it challenging to get the paper to Match up correctly around the pot. I just kept cutting the paper to make it look as nice as possible

This is the Rock Paper mixed with the Sky Paper.

I mixed the Wood paper with the grass paper

Wa La! Finished product!
