{Chicken Salad and Addictive Fabric…but it all starts with a Pancake}

Our day began an hour earlier than usual, which seems to be the NEW usual. Sigh. The kids have been waking up early, and I have been unable to sleep anyways- a mix of insomnia and my round tummy being eternally uncomfortable. Come September it will return to normal, but until then…Sigh.

So, one sleep deprived Mommy, and two antsy kiddos equals-

And also-

The sun was shining beautifully, and a storm is supposed to be rolling in…So we headed out to my favorite fabric store EVER. I have been hunting all week for the bedding that I want to use in LaLa’s room for her BIG GIRL BED! Ack! I ordered hers (you’ll see it in a moment…) and decided to make a quilt for Baby MnM who is arriving in September.

Did I mention we found out the baby is a girl???

So, I purchased LaLa’s bedding, and I decided to try to find some similar fabrics for the baby’s quilt. They will be sharing a room. So we headed out to Country Village.

And saw this cocky rooster-

Did you see that wig he has? Hilarious.

Below is a little snapshot of what we did. Buy fabric. Chase rooster. Shop for fabric. Eat hot dog. Sit on merry-go-round horses. Enjoy sunshine.

Keepsake Cottage Fabrics is also how you spell T-R-O-U-B-L-E. Look it up. It’s in the dictionary.

Here is the fabric I chose for the quilt-

I L.O.V.E fabric. Oh yes. I find it addictive. It makes my mouth water. It calls to me.
I came home, put the kiddos down for a nap, and made myself lunch. I have been anticipating today’s lunch since last night, when I made my mom’s famous Chicken Salad. OOOOh yes. First I made some home made lemonaid, and threw in some fresh raspberries and a sliced strawberry-

Oh Chicken Salad, this photo does not do you justice.

At the grocery store they had these GIANT strawberries, and so the kids and I will be having some when they get up-

And I will be having this-

Ok, I PROMISE you all that a TWO coffee day is R.A.R.E. Promise. Cross my heart. But this week? It’s just one of those weeks. Know what I mean?

Speaking of this week, my son’s fever broke on Sunday, Praise God! He is healthy and well now. What a relief.

Do you all want the recipe for my chicken salad? Let me know, I’ll post it if you do.

Now, about that quilt. I’ve never made a quilt before. Uh-oh. I am not the most patient person, so I don’t get into very many projects that require exactness. Usually I just let the artist in me flow.

And? I plan to do it THIS WEEKEND. Yep. I’ll post photos of my progress. Yikes! I want to be able to get more of the fabric for decorative pillows and such, and if I take all summer to do the quilt, I don’t know if they will still have it all!

It looks like the storm is here, the wind is blowing, my power just flickered off and back on, and the kiddos are up!

I’m going to start figuring out that quilt…(And I might just eat some Chicken Salad for dinner too…)


(P.S. If I ever seem food obsessive on my blog or when I comment on YOUR blog, I shall blame it on pregnancy. But really? I love food. FOOOOD. But you didn’t hear that here.)
