Day 407: An Apron of My Own

Here is a shocking fact about me:

For my entire marriage, I've never owned an apron.

Shocking because I spend so much of my time cooking and baking.  My mama got me an apron when I went away to college, but I didn't realize my chef skills yet, so I folded it up and put it up on the top shelf.  And then, I don't know what happened to it.  I looked for it many many times, but it has never turned up.

So, I've been using one of the two aprons owned by HH.  Or just splattering batter and grease all over my favorite shirts.  Tragic, but true.  I've been dropping hints to HH to get me one for at least 4 years, but he always forgets and gets me some other amazing gift.

Well, remember how my 40 Days were up yesterday?

I went and bought me this little gem.  This photo doesn't quite do it justice, but you get the idea.  It's adorable!  A big ol' Thank You to my friend Anna for the tip off.  She knew I'd been thinking about sewing one, so when she found these for $13 she passed along her insider info.

HH is a big fan of it as well.

I baked with it today and I felt so pretty (and didn't splatter any batter!) and it was my Joyful Moment.  And I'm pretty sure the Double Apple Breakfast Cake that I made tasted even better because I made it in style!

Wishing you all stylish Joyful Moments!

Dang girl, you're smokin' hot!

Just had to say that.

ps. I'm on high doses of narcotics. :D

pps. But that doesn't make what I said untrue.

How ADORABLE! And earned! If I'd known, I'd have given you an apron years ago. But I'm sure it wouldn't have so cute...

My joyful moments were teaching our 6 year olds - they listened more than usual. I hope it's because we're learning more how to connect with them, and I acknowledge that it might because half the class was absent. :)
