I’d like to wish Aly from Fudging Ahead a BIG congratulations on her pregnancy!!

Aly’s beautiful baby boy is due soon and I wanted to do something special for her.  After all, she threw me an amazing virtual baby shower.

Since she already gave me a shower and I know I couldn’t duplicate its awesomeness, I decided to go a different route.  I’ve decided to let her pick her own shower gift.  I know from personal experience sometimes you later regret putting items on your registry or you receive too many of the same item.  Sometimes you have a favorite item but you don’t receive it and sometimes it’s the surprise gifts that are truly the best of all.  So I’m providing a mix of all these options and giving Aly the choice to pick which gift she’d like best.

My twist?  Pandas!  I know Aly and her husband love Pandas so most of the gifts she can pick from have a Panda theme.  I may have even created a Panda Pinterest board in preparation for this very moment.

Let’s begin the parade of pandas! (Oh and clicking on the pictures will take you to each product page for more details.)

Question of the Day:  Which present should Aly pick??  Help her decide!

I went out on a limb for today’s Thrift Gift Facelift.

TGF-Button-8

I broadened my horizons, stepped out of my comfort zone, delved deep into the recess of things I never thought I would do . . . that’s right . . . I hand sewed.  Did you catch the “hand” part?  This is epic people, epic.

I don’t hand sew.  I tried cross stitching once in college (my sister loves it) and after about ten minutes I wanted to rip my hair out and run screaming into the night shouting make it stop.  That’s how much I hate cross stitch.

This wasn’t so bad.  I’m not saying I want to hand sew for a living and I must admit my dreams of opening an Etsy store to sell Onesie Pillows have been squelched, but I did have fun trying something new and I’m pleased with the results.  That’s really what Thrift Gift Facelift is all about right?

If you have no idea what I’m talking about you must be new to The Bite so click on over here to read the haps on this swap that Supermom and I created, mmmmm K?  I don’t want to bore the rest of you with repeat information.

It’s no secret that I’m pregnant and it’s no secret that I’m having a girl and it’s no secret that Supermom has two girls of her own.  What you might not know is that a good chunk of the girly hand me downs we’ve received for Baby Number 2 have been from Supermom, including the world’s largest stack of onesies.  Onesies are a baby staple item and nice to have around, but I probably have enough at this point for the babe to wear one every day and not be seen in the same onesie twice.  Okay, I’m embellishing a bit for effect, but you get the point.  We have lots of onesies.  From Supermom, from my sister, the gender neutral ones I saved from Sweetey Petey.  It’s a onesie smorgasbord over here and one less onesie in the closet isn’t going to cause Baby Number 2 to crawl around naked.  I’m embellishing a bit for effect again . . . babies don’t crawl at three months.  Sweetey Petey was booking it at 5, but three is pushing it.

So I made a onesie pillow from a three month onesie.
