Back to School……Back to School…..

‘Tis that time of year again! I got a lot accomplished this summer: gave birth, finished potty training my daughter….you know, the usual.   Thanks to Pinterest I got a lot of fun projects and recipes under my belt as well!  Here are my last 2 pins of the summer!

The Nap Mat:  Since my daughter is a giant and doesn’t quite fit in a Pack-n-Play anymore, she needed a new place to sleep at the babysitter’s.  The Babbysitter showed me a pin for this Nap Mat as a solution to our napping dilema.  So cute!  It was fairly easy, although I unsuccessully tried to “Courtney-ize” it by thiking I’m smarter than the tutorial- which I wasn’t.  If I make another, I probably won’t add the velco so the foam can be removed.  It wasn’t a pretty sight…..   No pics of my Sweet Clara using it, but she is loving it! Here is the tutorial picture, though.  Very Similar.

Egg Muffins:  In my quest to eat less carbohydrates I ate a lot of egg whites this summer.  With two crazy girls to get ready in the morning I did not want to make eggs every day, but didn’t want to give into cereal’s temptation.  This pin solved my problem!  What a great idea and so yummy!  I cooked a bunch of these suckers on Sunday and I can reheat them every morning and eat on the way to work!  Here is my variation and the websites pic.
