I got the best of gifts in the mail yesterday -- something hand made!! My super crafty friend Jen (who is also a master baker and my inspiration to read lots of books) made me this great bathrobe from the Amy Butler In Stitches book! It's so cute and even fits over my big, pregnant belly!
The cropped jammy pants are my creation. I tried to make them really stretchy in the waist using some really nice, thin elastic, but I'm finding that they are kind of falling down. Oh, well...guess I can just open them up and tighten things up a bit!
Tonight I also made my favorite peanut butter cookies, but I added bittersweet chocolate chips. Here's the *super easy* recipe:
1 C butter
1 C peanut butter (I prefer chunky/extra chunky)
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
1 t salt
1 t soda
1 t vanilla
2 C flour
Cream butters. Add sugars and mix well. Add remaining ingredients. Add extra flour if needed. Spoon onto cookie sheet and press down with floured spoon.

I have a coworker who is expecting her second boy any day now. Tomorrow I'm heading over to a conference room where she works for a little baby shower gathering among her closest coworkers. I figured what more appropriate way to wish her and her new baby well than with a Tiesie, or what I like to call "Business Casual for Baby."
I whipped these up with a stash of vintage ties I found at an estate sale. I thought they turned out pretty cute. In fact, they aren't all going to make it to the shower tomorrow...
