Recently Finn was lucky enough to get a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins. Let me just say...amazing!

She has been gifted other types of similar shoes and the Freshly Picked moccs blew me away with quality and fit.
Miss Finn has narrow feet, so most of the shoes I have gotten for her are too wide. The Freshly Picked moccs are elasticized around the ankle. Not only do they fit like a glove, but Finn can't get them off of her feet (and I promise you she has tried!).
Now on to the fun stuff! Freshly Picked has been kind enough to give a pair of their moccasins away! And to sweeten the deal, InFinnity Bibs is adding 2 bibs to the giveaway.
Here's the details:

1. The giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

2. The winner will receive 1 pair of Freshly Picked moccasins in their choice of color/size & 2 InFinnity Bibs in their choice of patterns.

3. The giveaway runs from 6/6/14-6/13/14. The winner will be chosen 6/13 at 7pm est.

4. To enter: follow @InFinnityBibs and @freshlypicked on Instagram and repost the giveaway picture posted on @InFinnityBibs with the comment #finnsfavs (1 entry accepted per day and no private profiles please)

5. For extra entries: follow InFinnity Bibs on Facebook and share the giveaway post
Finn's moccs were c/o Freshly Picked but all opinions expressed above are my own.
 
 
I thought I would share some of my summer staples.  I like to mix it up with my summer wardrobe, but there are a few pieces that I just keep buying summer after summer!
H&M Romper $9.95

I bought one of these a few years ago (I actually wore it in this blog post) and I love this romper.  It is super comfy and simple.  You can dress it up with a statement necklace and some great sandals or pair with converse sneaks and make it casual.  PS: I cut the neck tie string off and always wear it strapless.  This year I bought the romper in this pretty chambray-like blue and the striped style as well.
Old Navy Twill Shorts (3 1/2") $19.94

I have been buying shorts from Old Navy every summer.  They wash really well, don't get wrinkled super easy, and  they fit great!
H&M Jersey Tank Top $5.95

I have these in every color.  They are really long and flowy if you are trying to cover your booty.  But, they also look cute tucked in or tied in a little knot to make them shorter.  And, c'mon, you can't beat the price!
And just a heads up: InFinnity Bibs is pairing up with Freshly Picked for a great giveaway! Keep an eye out this Friday for Finn's Freshly Picked review and the giveaway details!
 
 

To Buy:

These earrings from Etsy.  I love the minimalist look.  I want in silver and gold because I can't get enough of the mixed metal look right now!

To Try:

I Found this on Pinterest--A Watermelon Breeze: 3 cups cubed chilled watermelon, 1 cup coconut water, juice of 1 fresh lime, ice if desired, sprig of mint.  Put all ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth. Makes two servings.  Sounds so refreshing for the summer!

And then there's my constant obsession:

Pigtails, Pools, and Sun Hats...summer must be here!

Don't forget to check out the Etsy Shop for lots of new summer InFinnity Bib styles!  I also have a deal going on right now: 3 bibs for $30.  Use code: three4thirty at checkout!
 
 
Since our kitchen was being put back together (and it feels brand new, even though it's all the old stuff except the floor!), I decided to organize our pantry.  We are lucky to have a nice sized pantry area with lots of shelving.  This is what it looked like during the construction:
There is nothing wrong with it, there just isn't much to it.  I only made a few minor changes to give it a little facelift.

1. gave the shelves a fresh coat of white paint
2. painted the interior walls of the pantry a nice light blue color
3. painted the outer lip of the shelves with chalkboard paint so they can be labeled
And there you have it.  I did it during Finn's afternoon nap, and I think it makes the pantry a cheerful and organized area in our kitchen!

Eventually I want to get some more organizing gadgets to make better use of the deep shelves.  I also want to add a few more hooks for things that need to be hung up.  But this is a nice first step!
 

Sale!

Just wanted to let you know about the InFinnity Bib Sale going on right now!
Lots of great patterns available in the shop!
 
 
Hi! It's been a looooong time.  My apologies.  I have been spending most of my free time sewing like a crazy person in preparation for some upcoming InFinnity Bib events!  But, before I get into that, how about a few updates.  First up, this kid:
I just love her so much, she makes me smile all day long.  And we are finally getting our kitchen put back together!  Hooray for almost having a sink and a dishwasher again!  With the reinstallation of the kitchen cabinets came a few updates to Finn's playroom.  The biggest of which is my mini office area, so we can spend lots of time together while I sew and she plays.
I will be doing a separate post on the entire playroom because I am obsessed with it!
As for InFinnity Bibs...we have an exciting giveaway going on today!  You can check it out over at MOPA.  And, if you live close to Dartmouth, MA you should definitely get some tickets to the MOPA Show, it looks amazing!
And lastly (for now) don't forget to mark your calenders for the Collingswood May Fair!  It's May 24th (rain date May 25th).  You can find more information about it here.  InFinnity Bibs will be having a stand with lots of beautiful bibs to check out!  Come visit us!
I will try to check in again soon!
 
 
A few of my purchases this week:
I have been eyeing this galvanized envelope mailbox at Target for a while now, and there was only one left when I went the other day.  Gasp!  I bought it, don't worry.

I have a slight obsession with all things fringed.  It's been a problem for years, and apparently it's sticking around for a while longer.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
Still waiting on the kitchen to get pieced back together, so no new fun and exciting recipes to share.  That is something that I am actually sorry about.

In more exciting news....InFinnity Bibs was accepted to be in the Collingswood May Fair this year!  I am super excited about it.  If you aren't familiar with the May Fair you can read all about it here.  Mark it in your calenders!  Come get your InFinnity Bibs!
Now if you excuse me I have to go sew until my fingers fall off...
 
 
Hmmm it's been a crazy couple of weeks over here. It was hard to break away and write a wrap up. I don't have any new recipes that I have tried that I can share with you seeing as my kitchen currently looks like this:
Thanks to a loose connection to our dishwasher we had to rip up the hardwood floors in the kitchen and cross our fingers that someone is available last minute to put it all back together.

So, I have been pinning recipes like crazy for when I have a functional oven again.
Quinoa Crust Pizza

Just to list a few.
While the kitchen demolition was going on, I was sewing like a crazy person. I have a lot of new spring pattern InFinnity Bibs coming out!  You can check out my current patterns here.  Lots of mod flowers, plaid, and gingham for the Spring!  And don't forget baseball season is around the corner!
An in other news...it's finally starting to get warm out!!! I foresee lots of outside adventures with my little peanut!
It's almost Friday...hang in there!
 
 
Wow, this week has flown by! Let's see, where to begin? I guess with a few recipes.

I kept it really simple this week, we are trying to clean out the freezer so I have been getting a little creative. I made this recipe for Shrimp Pad Thai which is incredibly easy and very delicious. Advice from someone who has made this probably about 15 times: don't skip or skimp on the fresh basil-it's the best part!
And I also whipped up a batch of these Clean Eating Cookies.
I only had 1/2 cup of almond butter, so I used 1/2 almond butter and 1/2 peanut butter.  They came out really yummy.

Moving on.

Yesterday someone turned 7 months!
After this photo, she promptly ate the sign.

She's getting so big!  I can't even stand it.
And just one more. I can't help myself. Finn is modeling her new favorite InFinnity Bib pattern.

I have been a sewing fool this week. There are a lot of new fabrics, if you are interested, you can see them all here.

Have a great weekend!  We are  going to Ikea, so hopefully I will have a playroom remodel update for you soon!
 
 
Happy birthday to me!  This wraps-up the end of my birthday(week).  That's right, week, not day, in fact, I worked on my actual birthday, so I needed the entire week to celebrate.  I am so lucky to have enjoyed multiple birthday meals and outings.  First up, we started the festivities out right by going to a charity ball with friends.  
Don't we clean up nice?  I haven't gotten all dressed up in a long time and we had such a great night!

This little peanut magically got 1 1/2 teeth this week.  Craziness...I can't even handle it.  Stop growing.
I can't get a picture of the little sneaky teeth though, so you will have to take my word for it.
We celebrated Finn's first Valentine's Day, which means I put her in all of her red heart accessories and paraded her around all day.  She was totally fine with it.  I think she is saying "put the camera down and brush my hair" in sign language here.  And my parents treated me to a home cooked birthday dinner, there were lots of brussels sprouts involved.  Sorry, I'm not sorry.
Birthday date with the hubby was amahzing.  We went to Tired Hands Brewery and tried some delish beers.  And we had candied bacon...consider my life complete now.  I wish I lived next door.  Small pours are right up my alley, this way I can try more things without getting full from having a whole pint.
And to complete the weekend, my MIL and FIL took us to dinner in the city.  We went to Route 6...soooo good.  Amazing seafood and a pretty decent craft beer selection.  The hubby thoroughly enjoyed himself some lobster.  And Finn got to flirt with the servers while I ate a few pounds of seafood and shellfish.

Here's to the big 2-8, let's see what you have in store for me!
