Random Stuff-Babysitting Buzzy

So it was my 28th birthday {again} and look at what I {I mean my adorable hubster} got me!!! It's one of those UH-MAZING cast iron enamel pots that can do just about anything except clip your toenails! {cause...gross} How nerdy is that?! I get excited about cast iron! These are very expensive, though, and I've been wanting one forever so my dreams have come true! {too bad I don't feel like cooking...}



And also - check out my cute little apron holder hookie!!! *I found it half off at Hobby Lobby - aak!* It fits SO perfectly on that teeny tiny space and it doesn't look all "in-your-face-I-have-cuter-aprons-than-you." So I guess I'm going to have to make a bunch more cute aprons to hang on the hook since I now have somewhere to discreetly display them.


Oh, and I found the most scrumptious yarn (at Hobby Lobby once again) and I couldn't resist making another baby nestie blankie! I can't say who it's for yet because it's a surprise - and I know she's on here like every single day - so I better keep it quiet. {just kidding - I don't even think she knows I have a blog...}

Anyway-I borrowed the preciously treasured "Buzzy" from my daughter this morning {I took good care of her, honey} to model the blankie. Buzzy has been my 7-year-old daughter's best friend since she was 6 months old and I'm not kidding.

So I had a fun photoshoot with Buzzy. She was a little hard because she wouldn't give me any eye contact, but I guess there were a lot of exciting things going on around us.






















You don't even KNOW how hard it was to keep her from eating the vegetation...

Happy Birthday! I have had my eye on that pot for a while... and now I will HAVE to head over to Hobby Lobby for a few of those hooks, hopefully they have them!

You're hilarious! I have Ikea's version of that pot, but it's not ceramic on the inside, it's the cast iron raw, right atcha. It's a pretty green one, and I have it in two sizes. Yes, I splurged. Yes, I deserved it/them.

DARLING! And sweet pot. And who is pregnant? And I hear you are a bit busier on Sundays+?

Joanna said...

I would love to have a cast iron pot like that! Oh the chili and soups I could make...Yum! I love my cast iron skillets!!

Cute blankie..and sweet bunny. My oldest daughter which is now 10 still has Bingo, a stuffed dog that has seen more trips to the washing machine then a pair of children's shoes! And SO many surgeries, poor little guy!

Terri said...

I have cast-iron pot envy, just so you know! But I am happy for you, because those are great pots, aren't they? It will last forever - you'll be handing it down to your grandchildren! :)

Love the Buzzy nestie! :)

You are too funny! I also recently celebrated my 28th (again) and I got the exact cast iron pot you did - I'm not kidding - mine is even red! I was so excited to finally get one! Next on my wish list is an immersion blender...

Abby said...

NO WAY! How cool that there are so many cast-iron nerds like me out there!!! {relief} Jen V - I can't believe we had the same magical b-day treat! I can't wait to use it.

And Laurylaro - I'm TOTALLY going to post the nestie blankie instructions...as soon as I can write it all down! I'm going to have to stitch and write as I go. hehe. I was thinking about that today and the fact that I pretty much just go by feel and if I wrote down instructions, I could make them identical each time. ...so stay tuned...
