The meanig of a name

We have had a name picked out for a baby girl since we knew we were pregnant with Benjamin in 2008. I am a planner and start early. I like really creative unique names and Daniel likes very traditional. Totally opposite. I gave into Benjamin because Daniel has wanted the name for as long as he can remember. I figured if a GUY thought that about a name, then I should go with it. I am easy going and the promise of other children made me more ok with it.

Then we got pregnant with #2. We attended a baptism and someone commented on the childs name being the mothers maiden name Alexander. I didn't think it was a cool name till I found out it used to be the mothers. I totally didn't think Daniel would go for it, so I made a sarcastic comment that it was too bad my name was Tayrien. Then he turned to me and said, "Why?" Then we both decided right then and there that it would be Tayrien. If he was for it, I am totally for it.

So I have figured out a way to get unique names while still being traditional...family names. Ok, the next pregnancy happens and we still have the same girl name picked out, but we were struggling with the boy. I had a ton of options, but Daniel didn't care for them. Then one night I pulled out a family history chart from Daniel's family and we started reading names. Daniel mentioned August and I jumped at that one. I have wanted that name since Tayrien, but couldn't convince Daniel of it, till he saw a family member with it. YEs!!!!!!! we had both names picked out.

So that brings me to our latest baby #3. I like the idea of taking names and rearrainging them to make new names. So one day in church sometime in 2008 I was playing with my name and found a combination I loved. Daniel liked it too. My middle name is Laurie after my mom. So i just took the "L" and place it at the end of the name to create "Auriel". I loved it. You pronounce it like a pirate saying Arrr, the letter "E", and the letter "L". Or the way sebastian the crab from the little mermaid says Ariel.

I couldn't think of a middle name that would work. I thought Brittany was more of a first name and weird as a middle, but after some convincing, I am ok with it. It will become more common I am sure as the years pass by and all the Brittany's have girls.

So now that we have named all of our children and y ou know the story behind it, we can move onto the crafty goodness. The baby will live in our room for a wile, so I want to decorate a little bit and my favorite thing is I want to spell out her name with mismatched letters and but a frame around it.


So today I made the first letter. I found a paper "A" in the target dollar section. So I started by painting it with a brush, but it was taking forever and looked bad, so I broke out the spray paint and painted it a glossy white. Then I made some cute rosettes that will match her theme of shabby chic. I am so excited to find another letter! I am thinking of a horseshoe for the "U" and painting it bright pink or something. Any other ideas for letters???

Baby A and the ultrasound

Yesterday was my first ultrasound of this pregnancy. One good thing about my doctor is he was trained to do his own ultrasounds in medical school so he does EVERYTHING for me (including the meds for my c-section). It is nice to know that it is just one person who is taking care of me instead of a bunch I don't know and don't trust. Anyways, back to the ultrasound, he is such a good doctor and went right for the goods first thing. Every other ultrasound mde me wait till the end to find out the gender. He is also a very detailed doctor so he explained everything. We got to see a heat index of the blood flow to the baby and the pull from the uterus. Both are as healthy as could be. He also said the brain looked healthy, the heart was pumping correctly, all the vertibray in the spine were lined up and none out of place. We got some good pictures of which he E_MAILED them to me! It was so cool. I printed copies off at home for the baby book, but I don't have to take a picture of a picture to show all of you! The coolest part was near the end, he captured a short video of the baby opening his/her mouth and the tongue and got a still picture for us. It is a really cool pic.

Check back here tomorrow for the gender reveal!

Baby Ruff Ruff

 So I saw this idea to make a baby carrier for a doll or a stuffed animal and knew I had to make it. Tayrien is very attatched to his little pug puppy and named him Ruff Ruff. I knew he would love this! I had some hand me dow fabric and went to work. The hardest part about this was the pattern, so I have done all the hard work for you! 

Here is my first ever attempt at making my own pattern for you guys to print off. It all fits on one regular size peice of paper except for the straps and I give measurements for those. You have to let me know how it goes.

  • Cute out all peices using pattern. Sew two of the body peices right sides together leaving a 3 in opening to turn right side out at the bottom middle. Sew the other two body peices together in the same way.
  • Clip each corner.

  • Clip each curve every 1/4 in so it can bend

  • Turn them each right side out and poke corners so they look nice.

  • Sew the center peice right sides together down each long side. Turn right side out.

  • Stick the center peice into each hole of the front and back peices. Pin.
  • Top stitch around the whole peice making sure you catch the center peice in there on both sides.

  • Sew the side peices together by overlapping the front onto the back.

  • This is what you should have at this point.

  • Cut the long straps out and sew one short end and the long end.
  • Turn right side out.
  • Sew the strap to the BACK body peice in two places. You will overlap by 1" and sew the strap edge and then the back kbody peice edge for a totaly of TWO strait seams.

  • Add a botton hole to the FRONT body straps.
*Tip, you can put a pin on either end of the buttonhole and use s eam ripper to cut the hole. THis way you won't ruin the hole you just sewed!

  • Sew a button hole to the other strap ends.
  • Add a button on the side and back strap/body strap where you made a connection seam.

Isn't he adorable!

He loves it and we tested it out by taking it to the park. He had his puppy with him and he stayed CLEAN! Benny liked it so much that now I have to make another for him!!!

Bumbo recall

I love my bumbo seat. I mean LOVE it! I used it all of the time with my boys. Daniel let me know that there has been a recall on them. I guess some kids wriggle free and hurt themselves, so they are sending people a seatbelt kit to add to the chairs. It is super simple and just need the info on your Bumbo to recieve the updated belt. Thought I would let you all know!

Oatmeal cupcakes

Well, they aren't really cupcakes, but that is what the boys were calling them so they are known as oatmeal cupcakes in our house!

I cannot post the recipe here because it is copywritted, but here is the link.

This is when all the ingredients are mixed together. It is really soupy and I had to use a ladel to pour it into a double lined foil then paper cup. They stay really moist after you bake them and the foil helps them not leak.

Here is how mine turned out. They are super moist and the boys LOVE them! They ate them for dessert the first night I made them. I also froze half of them since it made so much. I used a few different toppings: mini chocolate chips, strawberry jam, butterscotch chips, jam and mini chocolate chips. They all tasted great!

New chapter and a Winner!!!!

So today signifies the end of my year of posting every day. Whey! What I learned on this journey is that posting every day doesn't always produce great posts. I think I will still post all of my fun and creativity, but I want to be happy with every single post I put out there. So keep checking back for more nuggets of fun!

I am preparing for the boys birthday coming up, which is a superhero theme, and I created a symbol for each of the boys and a super hero name. Ben used to be called Silver ricochet, but it was a mouthful for him, so he is now Super ricochet.  Tayrien is Captain Taynk and I love his symbol!

This is the first step of the birthday planning and preparing so I am getting excited! I haven't figured out how I am going to apply them to their super capes. I may just have to cut out eat piece in fabric and sew them on, but that is A LOT of pieces! Stay tuned for that post! OH and since I love making these symbols, I am very willing to make some for my followers! Just leave me a message of what the super name is and if you have an idea for the symbol or colors. I will whip them up and send them to you! 

Now on to the best part of today's post the winner of the "365 days of posting" contest:

Coconut oil - Day 359

I saw this great tip to use coconut oil on your hair as a hair mask for 30 minutes before you shower. 

Major fail.

Don't get me wrong, my hair felt really soft, but it also was really greasy. Even though I shampooed twice, it looked like I hadn't washed it in five days. I had to dump a whole bunch of baby powder on it to make it presentable. I don't know if I put too much on, or maybe I did something wrong, but it was gross:(

Be {you} tiful - 358

I saw this really awesome activity on pinterest and used it for Young Womens this week. It was a HUGE hit.  It is called Be {you} tiful and focuses on loving yourself for who you are and respecting the Temple Heavenly Father gave you.

 I found a lot of my material on this post. I didn't use all of it, but here is the link if you want it all.

Dictionary.com defines Beauty as:
“the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from [1] sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), [2] a meaningful design or pattern, or [3] something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).”
I then wrote on the chalk board a model like this:

 (Not my diagram, I just used the main points in mine. I did not include repentance)
I had a popular magazine that I tore some good and bad examples of clothing and modesty and asked the girls the sort them. I posted them around the chalk board with the diagram. 
A Catholic blogger recently wrote an article called “The Death of Pretty,” in which he lamented the prevailing trend to abandon “pretty” in favor of “hot.”
“Once upon a time, women wanted to project an innocence.  I am not idealizing another age and I have no illusions about the virtues of our grandparents, concupiscence being what it is.  But some things were different in the back then.  First and foremost, many beautiful women, whatever the state of their souls, still wished to project a public innocence and virtue.  And that combination of beauty and innocence is what I define as pretty.
By nature, generally when men see this combination in women it brings out their better qualities, their best in fact.  That special combination of beauty and innocence, the pretty inspires men to protect and defend it.
Young women today do not seem to aspire to pretty, they prefer to be regarded as hot. Hotness is something altogether different.  When women want to be hot instead of pretty, they must view themselves in a certain way and consequently men view them differently as well.
As I said, pretty inspires men’s nobler instincts to protect and defend.  Pretty is cherished. Hotness, on the other hand, is a commodity.  Its value is temporary and must be used.  It is a consumable.”
The prophet Joseph Smith taught: “We came to this earth that we might have a body and present it pure before God in the Celestial Kingdom. The great principle of happiness consists in having a body. The Devil has no body, and herein is his punishment.”
Sister Susan W. Tanner added (and I highlighted the part I really love):
“Satan learned these same eternal truths about the body, and yet his punishment is that he does not have one. Therefore he tries to do everything he can to get us to abuse or misuse this precious gift. He has filled the world with lies and deceptions about the body. He tempts many to defile this great gift of the body through unchastity, immodesty, self-indulgence, and addictions. He seduces some to despise their bodies; others he tempts to worship their bodies. In either case, he entices the world to regard the body merely as an object.
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland spoke directly to young women (and women) in general conference, and said the following about current body-image trends:
Frankly, the world has been brutal with you in this regard. You are bombarded in movies, television, fashion magazines, and advertisements with the message that looks are everything! The pitch is, “If your looks are good enough, your life will be glamorous and you will be happy and popular.” That kind of pressure is immense in the teenage years, to say nothing of later womanhood. In too many cases too much is being done to the human body to meet just such a fictional (to say nothing of superficial) standard. . . . . In terms of preoccupation with self and a fixation on the physical, this is more than social insanity; it is spiritually destructive, and it accounts for much of the unhappiness women, including young women, face in the modern world. And if adults are preoccupied with appearance—tucking and nipping and implanting and remodeling everything that can be remodeled—those pressures and anxieties will certainly seep through to children. At some point the problem becomes what the Book of Mormon called “vain imaginations.”
Elder Richard G. Scott warned:
“Satan has unleashed a seductive campaign to undermine the sanctity of womanhood, to deceive the daughters of God and divert them from their divine destiny. He well knows women are the compassionate, self-sacrificing, loving power that binds together the human family. He would focus their interests solely on their physical attributes and rob them of their exalting roles as wives and mothers.”

Armor of God:
The world’s version of beauty tells us to put on sexy clothes.  Deep beauty tells us to put on the armor of God. When the First Presidency wrote the standards as outlined in For the Strength of Youth, they asserted:
“The standards in this booklet will help you with the important choices you are making now and will yet make in the future. We promise that as you keep the covenants you have made and these standards, you will be blessed with the companionship of the Holy Ghost, your faith and testimony will grow stronger, and you will enjoy increasing happiness.”
The guidelines state:
Prophets of God have continually counseled His children to dress modestly. When you are well groomed and modestly dressed, you invite the companionship of the Spirit and you can be a good influence on others. Your dress and grooming influence the way you and others act.
Never lower your standards of dress. Do not use a special occasion as an excuse to be immodest. When you dress immodestly, you send a message that is contrary to your identity as a son or daughter of God. You also send the message that you are using your body to get attention and approval.
Immodest clothing is any clothing that is tight, sheer, or revealing in any other manner. Young women should avoid short shorts and short skirts, shirts that do not cover the stomach, and clothing that does not cover the shoulders or is low-cut in the front or the back. Young men should also maintain modesty in their appearance. Young men and young women should be neat and clean and avoid being extreme or inappropriately casual in clothing, hairstyle, and behavior. They should choose appropriately modest apparel when participating in sports. The fashions of the world will change, but the Lord’s standards will not change.
Sister Silvia Allred, of the general Relief Society presidency, taught:
“One of the challenges members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints face today is obeying principles of modesty in an increasingly immodest world. Difficult though it may be, we can show our discipleship to the Savior Jesus Christ by obeying the Church’s standards of modesty. … For Latter-day Saints, the way we dress demonstrates our understanding of and commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ”
Body + Spirit = Temple:
The world would teach us that the body is an object.  Deep beauty relies upon the doctrine that the body is a sacred vessel for the Spirit.  The scriptures teach that when we are righteous, the body is full of light.  This is what Sister Tanner taught about appropriate goals for our bodies:
“Happiness comes from accepting the bodies we have been given as divine gifts and enhancing our natural attributes, not from remaking our bodies after the image of the world. The Lord wants us to be made over—but in His image, not in the image of the world, by receiving His image in our countenances.  . . .
Our bodies are our temples. We are not less but more like Heavenly Father because we are embodied. I testify that we are His children, made in His image, with the potential to become like Him. Let us treat this divine gift of the body with great care.”
Elder Holland echoed her plea:
“In this same vein may I address an even more sensitive subject. I plead with you young women to please be more accepting of yourselves, including your body shape and style, with a little less longing to look like someone else. We are all different. Some are tall, and some are short. Some are round, and some are thin. And almost everyone at some time or other wants to be something they are not! But as one adviser to teenage girls said: “You can’t live your life worrying that the world is staring at you. When you let people’s opinions make you self-conscious you give away your power. … The key to feeling [confident] is to always listen to your inner self—[the real you.]”And in the kingdom of God, the real you is “more precious than rubies.”Every young woman is a child of destiny and every adult woman a powerful force for good. I mention adult women because, sisters, you are our greatest examples and resource for these young women.”
Then I handed out cards to the girls and they were to think of someone they admired. They were to think of the qualities that makes them admirable and then write them a thank you you note for being a good example. 

Then This part was really fun. Each girl took a turn standing in front of the chalk board and the other girls wrote good qualities all round them. I took pictures and will hand them out on Sunday so they can always remember what other admire in them. It turned out super cute!

Ok, now for the craft, I bought little hand mirrors and used my cricut and left over vinyl and cut the phrase Be{you}tiful out. So I handed out mirrors and the strips of vinyl and they put the phrase on the Mirror. Now everytime they use the mirror they will see the phrase and remember the lesson and hopefully make good choices concerning how they treat and dress their bodies! 

Oh and then we had treats!

Ruffle dress - Day 357

 This was a really hard dress. I think it was so hard for me because I had made another dress already that morning. I cut the shirt just like the Maxi dress. Then I cut four different ruffles. The are all 80 in long. The first width is 6 in. You extend each layer by two inches. So in order it goes 6 in, 8 in, 10 in, 12 in. The first ruffle you will attach is the bottom one. I cut a rectangle 80 x how ever long I wanted it. Then I sewed the bottom ruffle to it. Then I added the top ruffle. Then I would tuck the next layer a little under the top layer and sew. Same with the third ruffle. This way the seams are hidden. Sew the ruffles to the shirt. I also cut a few inches of the bottom of the shirt that was left over and slid it over the seam of the ruffles and the shirt. I like the bunched up look. I wore it to Young Women's last night and they girls loved it and thought I bought it.

Ruffle duster shirt - Day 356

 For this mash-up I used a white t-shirt and a pillowcase. I decided to make a ruffle bottom instead of an empire waist number. So I used some left over fabric from the third project for the bigger ruffle. I cut the bigger ruffle 6 in. wide x 80 in long. The smaller ruffle is 3in x 80 in. Hem the bottom of the ruffles. Line up the tops of the ruffles and run a stitch so that you can ruffle the ruffle.

Once you have them ruffled, line them up with the bottom of the shirt and sew. 

I then took lace and top stitched it on the seam.

There was a little strip of lace on the pillowcase that I used to line the neckline.  
I knotted it on the side.

Super cute right?!I think it will be even cuter with a bigger belly!
