Happy monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.
Let me ask you something, who cooks in your house?
In this house, Will is the master chef. Not only does he enjoy it more than I do but, he is definitely better than I am.
These days however, Will has a little helper in the kitchen with him. Lily has taken an interest in cooking and being in the kitchen with her pai.
She loves putting on the apron and reminds him to put his on if he doesn’t have it on already and, she loves putting on the dish towel over her shoulder just like Will does.
Ever since she was able to sit on the kitchen counter, Will has sat Lily there and talked to her while cooking as well as taught her about spices by letting her smell every single one of the spice jars.
Even though I am a bit blown away by Lily’s 2 year old interest in cooking, it doesn’t really surprise me and I find it to be a beautiful way for Will and Lily to spend some bonding quality time together. (and hopefully she will come out cooking better than i do)
What about you guys? Are you the chef in your kitchen and do you cook with your little one?

Oh! I almost forgot…. and the winner of the feather headband giveaway is…
Congratulations Natasha! Hope you, Olivia and Marco enjoy the feather headband. Please send me your address so I can send it to you.
Hello everyone! Are you ready for our very first tutorial?
Well, it all started when I cleaned out my dresser drawers on thursday and finally got rid of favorite pajama pants that had holes and tears with no repair.
Since I wanted to make Lily a birthday “2” headband, I thought it would be a great idea to use the fabric from my very favorite pajama pants.
So, if you have old pillow cases, aprons, t-shirts, sheets, or pajama pants that you are holding onto but don’t know exactly what to do, make some headbands! (or mobiles. tutorial for that another day)
The only thing you will really need to know, is to sew a button. That you must know in order to make this headband.
For Lily’s birthday party, I made flowers for the girls and feathers for the boys.
Since Thanksgiving is around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to make a feather.
So here we go!
What you need:
Paper (on the thicker side so it doesn’t bend or fold), pencil, sharpie, scissors (good one that will cut through paper and fabric), glue stick, a button (or buttons if you are making more than one), needle, thread, any kind of ribbon (if you are using pajama pants you can use the ribbon-tie) and fabric.
Today is my brother’s birthday and this is our last weekend here so you will most likely not hear from me until monday or tuesday.
I would like to leave you this weekend with a giveaway.
Some of you are my friends on Facebook and when I posted a picture of the traditional pottery at the market, there seemed to have been interest in the salt and pepper shakers like the ones in my mother’s kitchen that I grew up with since I was a little girl.
So, I went back to the market and got a pair in order to give you all a chance to win a little piece of Portugal. 🙂
All you have to do is leave a comment on here. You don’t have to be a follower, all you have to do is leave a comment saying “I want them!” or something like it.
We will be leaving back to Miami on thursday so this giveaway will stay open until sunday November 06.
