Now that the office/baby room is finally complete I have a new place to snap some pics!
I'll share more photos of how this room turned out later. I'm so proud!
Yesterday me and the husband went to Tyler, TX to join my family in celebrating my grandaddy's 88th birthday. I didn't know he was that old! That just goes to show how awesome he is.
I wanted to dress festively but comfortably (and warm for the occasion) because Tyler is two and a half hours away. I dressed for travel.
I'm enjoying my new office so much! No more tiny bits of metal from my jewelry making stuck in the living room carpet. No more beads and charms lost in the couch. Hooray! You're probably wondering why I would want to do such crafts in a nursery. Well River is only two months old right now and won't be getting into anything hazardous anytime soon. But when he gets to that creepy crawly stage, I'll probably just move my operation into the kitchen and let him have the room to himself.

At his birthday party, grandaddy got to hold his great-grandson for the first time. He was so tickled that he got a smile out of him. Aren't they cute together?

What cake can hold 88 candles??

Me, of course.

The gorgeous deviled eggs I made for the party
How to make pretty deviled eggs!
I saw a photo of pastel deviled eggs on Pinterest and figured I'd give it a shot. There were no instructions on how to make them so I just took a wild guess.
I'm terrible at DIY instructions by the way...
Prepare your deviled eggs like you normally do but soak the whites in a mixture of food coloring and water for about ten minutes. I think I used about 8-10 drops of food coloring in each glass.
Instead of just adding mayo to the yolks to make the filling I add all sorts of awesomeness: Miracle Whip, pickle relish, a little yellow mustard and precooked bacon bits (at the request of my mom and husband).
Tip: you don't need an icing bag to fill the eggs, just put your filling in a ziploc bag, cut the tip off the bottom corner and squeeeeeeze.
Top your eggs with a sprinkle of paprika and there ya go!
Have a great week party people!
I'm going shark hunting with Morgan Freeman in the arctic tundra now. Peace!
