Broke

In broken stuff, memorial day on May 27, 2015 at 2:04 pm

So all that happened this weekend…  as well as Roo giving Kevin an extensive makeover which has now left him unrecognizable…

….   and in other news…

Happy Memorial Day a bit late…   Thank you to all those who have lost their lives serving for our country and all those who who are serving currently! A thank you is not enough…

Roo had her ride in a first as far as parades go…  she joined Graceway Bible Church and her Awana friends for the Hamilton parade.

I tried to hold together the camera lens long enough to snap a few pics…  didn’t quite want to focus…  Some part of me didn’t really think it was broken.  I mean… it was still holding on… Well part of it is still holding on to the base… lol.. I just thought it was going to take me an extra 5 minutes to take a photo each time.  Highly annoying, but doable and 1 out of 10 might be in focus… no big…

oh well…

I also thought it was funny that this dress Roo chose to wear has survived at least 6 closet purges in Roo’s room over the past two years…

We made it for July 4th 2013:

July-4-fitty-memorial-day-patriotic-madebyfitty-roo

and I think merely because she wears it often even just around the house, we just kept it in the rotation…

Besides the outer tuley layer it’s all jersey knit, so it’s quite stretchy.

Next year it will called a “top” instead of a “dress.”

I like her choice of footwear as well…

because these red star boots she used to always wear with it, (even in the summer)  are definitely too small and have now been passed down to smaller feet.

I just realized I have a handful of scrapbook layouts of her in this dress…

I think for this July 4th we’ll have to make something new…

Anyway…

The good news is the phone still works!  Perhaps I’ll embellish it with some cute washi and packing tape!  I have to say though…  I’ve dropped that iphone 4 soo soo soo many times, I’m actually shocked it took me this long to finally break it.  And this time it just kinda fell out of my sweatshirt pocket as I was taking it off.

Oaty Applesauce (Vegan) Waffles

In Fitty, Food Allergies, Recipe on May 2, 2015 at 3:02 pm

 

Breakfast- YUM

Ingredients

1 1/2 Cup Non-Dairy Milk ( I used organic soy)

1 tsp. apple cider vinegar ( white is fine too)

1/4 Cup Oil ( I used Safflower)

1 Cup Rolled Oats

1/2 Cup Applesauce

2 Cups Flour – (I used a mixture of wheat, white, and rice… your preferance. Whatever you have on hand should work.)

1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/4 tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Vanilla

1 tsp. Cinnamon

OPTIONS!

add dairy free choc chips

add fresh fruit

add…. love and hugs! ( Actually I should put that one in the must-have ingredients!)

Eleanor was trying to give the Applesauce bunny ears in this photo… but I cut if off a bit…

ingreeeeds!

Directions:

THROW ALL THE INGREDIENTS IN A BOWL, WHISK, AND POUR INTO YOUR WAFFLE MAKER! ok, no, but seriously… that’s for the lazies. Which sometimes we are, and ya know what… this method works. But if you have extra time and wanna add a little loving care, do this:

Add your wet ingredients together in one bowl, First the substitute milk, then the vinegar. Let that sit a minute. Then add the applesauce, oil, and vanilla.

In a seperate bowl, mix all your dry ingredients: flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon.

Then add your wet ingredients to your dry and whisk together. If mixture feels too thick, you can always add more soy milk or water even.

After that, follow your waffle maker directions. Some may need a spritz of baking spray to keep the waffle from sticking, some may not… some flip, some do not… Mine needs spray and does not flip. It takes mine roughly 5-6 mintues to cook a waffle.

 

DONE!

ENJOY!

GOD BLESS YOUR BELLIES!

Hey ya’ll.  It’s time for the YOUTUBE Layout HOP again!  It’s been FOREVER since I’ve scrapped. And a couple weeks ago I told myself I had to join the hop so I could get back into getting messaaaay!  (messy)

So this month’s theme is the POLKA! So I got out my accordian and played it while my legs took turns lifting eaches rescpective foot.  ( I just looked up “eaches” and yea no.. not a word..)  Lemme try again: So I got out my accordian and played it while each foot was lifted in turn by it’s respective leg!  ?  Well, anyway, you know the dance right? So this is needless and null of point! Actually, I’m not even sure if you would do that in the dance, but in any dance usually a foot leaves the floor at some point…  I should’ve looked that up too! Why am I still talking about the POLKA when that isn’t even the theme anyway!  Upon further inspection, I realized that the POLKA had some dots after it.

So this months theme is: POLKA DOTS!

Which I thought would have been easy, but I actually had a hard time at first.  I had a bunch of scraps of polka dot paper,  but wasn’t really feelin’ it.  So, I decided to involve the Silouette and cut out a bunch of holes in a 12×12 page to make it look like it was polka dotted.

Then I used one scrap of polka dot paper, and one piece of polka dot fabric to show through the holes from underneath. And TADA: Theme satisfied!

image

 

So I adhered the fabric and paper together with the good ol’ sewing machine. I went a little crazy…  But I needed some mess, it was looking to tidy.  Then I just stamped around and watercolored around… can’t say it’s my favorite layout… but I’ve learned to just keep going because your bad projects tell a story as well as the good ones.

The picture is of my daugher with a rainbow painted on her face.  I’ve posted before about her fascination with facepaint.  So ever since we finally got ourselves a kit at home, we facepaint frequently.  So this day was no different… I feel like it was snowing or raining or something…   so we just stayed in all day.

image

 

So I only used a couple little cards to layer under the picture, and then used letter stickers and wood veneer letters for the title.

image

I do like how some of the fabric got pushed up into the holes.  So there’s that…  ha…

So the Youtube Layout Hop involves making a video, so here is the process for this layout:

 

By the way, the word POLKA literally means Polish lady.  You’re welcome.
