Apron Swap Happiness

I am very late posting this to my blog. Here is the glorious apron I recieved from my Sassy Apron Swap partner, the amazing Allison. It is made from oh so pretty spring fabric and here's the best part...it is a maternity apron, so it will fit me all year long! Oh! Surprize!! I am expecting a baby somewhere around October 8. My son is hoping for a brother to be on his team--he thinks his 3 sisters are a bit crazy sometimes.

Back to rhapsodizing about my apron...It has lovely large pockets on the front and it came with a matching hair tie. happy sigh. I wear it pretty much every day. Sort of like Gwenny, my 3 year old, and her sparkly shoes. I was telling one friend about the apron swap--how we have partners and we send someone an apron and then someone else sends us one. She got a really confused look on her face and said, "Why don't you just make yourself an apron?" I didn't know what to say. She just doesn't get it, so I don't think I could explain it. How you can make something way cooler for someone else than for yourself. And it is like Christmas to get that package in the mail from far away and be amazed and the perfect thing that a total stranger made special for you. And I got the most wonderful, sweet note from the lady I made my apron for saying how much she really loved it. That was the best part.


  1. Congrats on your pregnancy! Love the idea of a maternity apron! Had never thought of that before!

    Stop by sometime. I'll fix you a glass of iced tea & you can put your feet up. :D

  2. Congrats!! It's seems to be the year of the boy, so Benji could be jumping for joy! Do you find out before? or do you usually wait?

  3. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I love that maternity apron. So clever.

  4. Of course it's more fun to get an apron in the mail. There's the surprise and then just the great happy feeling of getting mail that isn't a credit card offer or a k-mart flyer. Plus, other people have way cool apron patterns and ideas. I love it! I'm so excited to see you in one month!

  5. Hi Rebecca! I found your blog a few days ago, but forgot how I found it (maybe through Jill's blog?). It's amazing who I find through others' blogs. It's fun! :-) You can check out my blog if you want to (jeffandvickihoggard.blogspot.com). And congrats on your pregnancy! That's exciting!
