New Blog!

Dear faithful Look What Jeff Did readers,

It is with excitement and a little sadness that I announce I will no longer be posting here.  Oh your not surprised?!?  Is that because there has been no post in 6 months?  oh. Well, I am back to blogging, but with a fresh start over at www.hattiejaneblog.com.  Please come follow me over there.  I will still be posting about what Jeff does.  I have tons of projects to share with you that he has created during my 6 month hiatus. I will also be blogging about my crafts and our cute little family, which has a new addition since my last post.  Our little girl is also the inspiration for my soon to be new etsy shop: Shop Hattie Jane, hence the new blog name.


If you just found me through pinterest or google or something else.  Please hop on over to www.hattiejaneblog.com.  I promise some inspiring DIY projects are coming soon.


Master Bathroom Reveal!

So Jeff finished (99% finished) the bathroom quite a while back, but we never got to adding all the finishing touches.  I was waiting until it was 100% done before taking pictures, but then I realized that we will never get there, so here is our 99% complete bathroom.

I think it turned out great, and the best part is that we now have a second bathroom!!!

28 weeks!

I finally got around to taking some pregnancy pics and for some reason, they are all out of focus!  But you get the idea.  I'm getting big!


The best little ring bearer

A couple weekends ago, Wesley got to the ring bearer for his Uncle Mark's wedding.  I've been slacking on posting pictures of our new bathroom (which is 98 % done) and some other crafty projects I've been working on, but I hope these cute pictures of Wesley will hold you over.

Here we are with Wesley's cousin flower girl Violet just before the ceremony.

Fueling up with some happy juice (aka milk) to get the crankies out.

Waiting his turn to walk down the aisle.  It was the longest aisle ever and as soon as Wesley saw the people he froze!  I got him to take a few steps on his own, but daddy had to come rescue him.  Wes kept his cool though.

Once Wesley made it down the looong aisle (with daddy's help).  He was all smiles. 

A few shots of the beautiful couple.

Posing on the rocks after the ceremony.

With his Papa Dan

Here we are sleepy and exhausted from dancing the night away.


Wesley's First Haircut

We finally broke down and cut Wesley's hair for the first time this last weekend.  He had a big job as his uncle's ring bearer and his hair was getting a little out of control.  Wesley did really well, didn't freak out at all.  Unlike me, I was freaked out the whole time.

Doesn't he look like such a big boy!  I miss his little curls, but the new haircut is growing on me.  


A Simply Sweet "Baby Girl" Baby Shower

This last weekend, I helped throw my beautiful friend Rachel a baby shower.  Rachel had requested a laid back co-ed shower at the park where family and friends could relax and play some games.  Of'course, we still had to highlight that sweet little girl growing inside her, so we went with a simple "baby girl" theme and tried to not get too stuffy with the decorations.

I think it turned out beautifully.  We were blessed with gorgeous weather and some good food, thanks to the mom to be's grandpa (can you say carne asada?).  And I think our decorations were just enough to make it feel like a baby shower without making the men uncomfortable.

These napkins were picked out by the grandma-to-be and became my inspiration for the decor.

I made a simple burlap "baby" banner for the unnamed baby girl as well as some cute fabric flag bunting to hang across the gazebo.

I also strung up some onesies and outfits for the baby girl over the cupcake table.

Little pink bows went in between the onesies.

The cupcakes were made by one of the hosts' mother and were adorned with pick chocolate booties.

My good friend Kerri (who you can find over at The Creative Side) was in charge of the centerpieces and decorated the picnic tables with Mason jars wrapped in burlap and twine.  Little plastic pacifiers finsihed off the look.  I thin kthey turned out so cute!

For the pink table runners, we had the great idea of buying cheep plastic table cloths from the dollar store and cutting them in half to make a simple runner.  It was so much easier that my first idea which was to sew table runners from fabric!

Finally I decorated a basket for the baby's library since we had asked guests to bring a book in place of a card.

Here is a shot of the beautiful couple.  They are sporting the pacifier necklaces that Kerri made for the shower game.  You know, the one where you can't say certain words, or your necklace get's stolen?  The guys and kids loved the game.

And here are the beautiful ladeis that made this shower come together.

And me and the beautiful mom to be.  You can't even tell she's 8 months pregnant!
