Mark took me tonight to sign up for cake decorating classes. I mentioned before how I wanted to take a sewing and a cake decorating class, so I guess I better get started on it. I was actually planning to be in sewing classes as of now, since I was positive I was going to have a baby girl and would be making her tons of clothes, blankets, bows, hats, etc. and now that plans have changed, I didn't think there would be too many things I could actually make for a boy. The good news: this has saved us a ton, and I mean a TON, of money so far.
The classes start on July 5th and are every Monday night for 4 weeks. We will see how this goes. I was a bit disappointed that I am expected to bring loads of supplies and purchase many things to bring to class, but this is Michael's, and not some fancy-shmancy bakery.

I made my first ETSY purchase and now I LOVE this website. I am pretty on top of all online shopping, but didn't even really understand what ETSY was...until now. It's basically an EBAY, but the sellers HAND MAKE everything!! I ordered Dylan's 1st baby book from this lady Julie on there and it is the cutest and most perfect little book. I am always trying to find things different from everyone else and the boring baby books in all of the stores just weren't doing anything for me. I wanted to share this lady's etsy website incase others are looking for adorable baby books for themselves or a friend!

Peanut Butter Dog Cookies
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk
1 tsp. of vanilla
Preheat oven to 375'F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container.
* I didn't have any small little cookie cutters, so I just rolled small balls into thin strips and folded them like little pretzels!
