On Mother's Day morning, both my mom and mother-in-law opened their gifts and cards to find these little "recipe" booklets. My mom informed me she thought I sent her some gluten-free something or other, and was infinitely more thrilled to see it was in fact a baby we had cooked up. My mother-in-law, on the other hand, is a bit sneaky sneaky and straight up asked if we were having a baby just days before. Naturally, I had to lie to her. I bold-face lied to my mother-in-law! Do you know how stressful that is? I couldn't ruin the Mother's Day surprise, though. This was just too good. What better gift can you give a grandma on the day that celebrates motherhood?
I threw these booklets together on a whim, using the materials I had on hand. In my dreams I had planned out a more professional, artistically designed and ornate book, but who has time for that? I'm not gonna lie, DIY shenanigans and crafting give me a headache just thinking about them at this point. Me, the lover of painting everything and anything I can get my hands on, cringes at the thought of glue guns and making crap. Pregnancy turns me into a different person (a crazy and waaayyy too emotional person, but we'll talk about that another day).
Anyway, this is as close as I am getting to DIYing for now, but I thought I'd share how we announced our pregnancy. All you need is a computer, card stock paper, string and washi tape. It's a cute and easy way to spread the news of a bambino on the way!
