Cooking Up a Storm

I wish that I didn't have to work full time outside of the home so that I can more crafting projects. I've also having been trying to figure out a better system for my grocery bill and to feed my family dinner. Honestly I get lazy when it comes to feeding my family dinner. So I decided that I would go through my Pinterest Food boards (Food and Meatless Meals) and see what I had pinned for ideas. So for the last 3 weeks I've made dinner pretty much every night! Yea go me! My grocery bill has reduced significantlly since I try to buy food items that can be used in mulitple recipes. So here are my families top 3 dishes so far.

*I'm posting the links to my Pinterest pins which will link you to the original link.*

Curried Qunioa w/ Sweet Potatoes

Asian Spaghetti

Citrus Oven Roasted Chicken

I tweaked the recipes to my families liking but these so far we love!

Dress Tutu

Yesterday while I was home hanging out with my baby, the creative bug bit me and I had to make something. Since my daughter's 1st birthday is a month away and she her first photo shoot soon I decided that I needed to make her a tutu. We headed out to our local ribbon store. I bought a few things to accessorize what I already had for one of her outfits. I found a pink 6 inch crochet headband and a pretty flower that I can make her tutu with. I already had tulle at home in my closet. No joke I had 2 large bags of tulle. I'm a tulle hoarder, haha. For the colors that I needed most of it was already cut into strips. So I got to work. I love the final product!! It's so pretty!

Pink Sparkle Dress Tutu
 I can't wait to have my daughter wear this for her photo session! I will take custom orders for this. They will run from $30-$50 depending on the size of the tutu.

I was born and raised in Arizona, in the year 2011 I married my wonderful husband Brenndon and 9 months later I was blessed with a beautiful little girl Irish! She turned my world upside down and my life has never been better! My family loves to go on outings and play dates and just spending time together! My husband is in the airforce and he works very long shifts so when we all get together we have the best time! So as you can tell my entire life revolves in a few things my family, the Air force, and Irish Bowtique!

My shop is names after my Daughter, after she was born I began making bows and tutu's for her. and my friends and family started to want to buy them! So in September 2012 Irish Bowtique was born! I design and create bows and tutus for all ages!
