oh boy.

thank you for all the goodness about my bulk food / cellophane wrap idea. i buy the cellophane bags in two sizes and try to always have some on hand. they are my wrapping weapon of choice. perfect for making little things look that much cuter. xpedx has the greatest selection of high quality bags. i also like stacking cookies or muffins in them too. ribbon, baker's twine or a strip of fabric ties it up pretty.

i am cutting out early today to prep for guests. whit & co. are coming! hip hip. am going to attempt to whip up something delicious and pray that the weather behaves. methinks we'll celebrate father's day with pancakes, sliced bananas, syrup and bacon. the four basic food groups.

i cannot begin to put into words what it means to have watched dan become a dad. lets just say, it doesn't even compare to the first time i saw him skate his seventies heart out at the roller rink. or the first time i sat in awe of his neil diamond impression. or the first time he took me snowshoeing and brought along hot chocolate in a thermos. or that time he left tulips on my porch for no reason. seeing him with our son is like falling in love with him all over again.



happy first father's day, dan.
you have won both our hearts. xo.

Cute, cute baby! There really is nothing sweeter than a good dad.

Glad I am not the only person addicted to cellophane. Target has the cutest mini-cellophane bags for a FABULOUS price.

Dan has to be one of the cutest dads around. Who takes his tiny son to Fathers and Sons before he can walk? Lucky baby boy.

anna jo said...

I can't wait to see this change in pete. I know he's going to be a rock star father.

Hi Marta!
If I can borrow a moment... WHERE have you found baker's twine in the SLC area? I've looked at all the usual haunts (craft stores, Xpedx, OH Gygi, etc.), but nada. nothing. zilch. Except for the little Martha Stewart set at Michaels. Have you found a real spool of it somewhere, and would you share the secret?
