Another Birdie Bib...

It seems I'm obsessed with making baby bibs lately. I've analyzed this addictive behavior the last few days as I've painted (and painted and painted) the ceiling in our kitchen/nook/family room area. Painting gives you gobs of time for self examination.

{For example, I've also figured out why I haven't been able to stick to a diet the last couple of years... 1.) I like to eat. 2.) I don't like to diet. If anyone knows how to make a diet more fun than eating, please leave a comment below. Your remark might be the breakthrough I need to kick-start a diet for good!}

Anywho, I haven't had a lot of time for creating lately, and a bib is just about the quickest project one can ever produce, so I'm sure that's why I've been compelled to produce a myriad of baby bibs of late. Like the little Birdie Bib I posted on Monday, this one has the same adorable embroidered pattern. You can find the pattern and inspiration for this bib here at Soule Mama.

As you can see I chose to add a little ruffle on the bib this time...

I finished painting the ceilings yesterday and today I begin the kitchen walls. I'm excited to give my kitchen a little boost. 

Along with the diet suggestions, if any of you know a good online source for lighting fixtures, could you send  the information my way? Maybe a store that has some different or more original items. I'd like to purchase a new semi-flush mount ceiling fixture for my family room, so I'm interested in a good on-line source. Thanks!

I seriously love your bibs! They're amazing and so detailed and darling! Oh and my number one diet tip is to take away temptation. At night when I'm looking for some chocolately dessert, if I don't find anything, I either settle for fruit or just walk away. Same thing with junk food and unhealthy snacks!

I've gone for years trying to lose weight. I seem to "find" it when anyone else has "lost" their weight. But I've lost 22 pounds since June. What got me going was my sister who lost 40 lately. There are several things that make the pounds just melt off without hardly any effort or hunger: (1)eat within the first half hour of awakening (an egg or protein drink around 100 calories); this starts your metabolism, (2) eat every 2.5-3 hours~about 100 calories of mostly protein and very little carbs ; this keeps your body from storing the fat (fat burning) because it doesn't feel threatened that you are in starvation mode. Have 5 of these tiny snacks during the day and (3) one lean and green salad once a day with 6 oz of meat/protein and lots of lettuce, arugula, spinach and the like.
Be faithful about the 2.5-3 hour "meals" and eating first thing in the morning. Drink lots of water.
I have a book I can recommend if you'd like to email me, I can send you a link.
Much love, and sending you positive vibes: you can do it

1. I also like to eat.
2. I also have a certain disdain for dieting.

There you have it. If you can't find anyone else that understands you, I do!

PS: Please don't tell your biological sons that I posted on this blog. Still trying to "seem tough" if you know what I mean.
