Daughter Micah's baby shower creation!

My daughter, Micah, is going to a friend's baby shower and she wanted to get her something really different. So she decided to make her something. Now this may not be a new idea to some of you out there, but I hadn't seen it before. It's called a diaper cake! I think it turned out really cute!

In case you can't tell from my photos, she used a pizza pan as her base, covered it with a folded baby blanket and then stood a bottle of sparkling grape juice in the middle for a support. Then she rolled up tons of little disposable diapers and arranged them around the bottle holding them together with rubber bands. Then she stacked another tier of diapers on top of the first and then a small third tier. Then she secured a ribbon around each tier and tucked baby items into the ribbon. It's about $50 worth of stuff, but this is one of her best friends so she thought it was worth it.

Oh, and here is a photo of the first lettuce from our garden, with Ranch dressing. You can't get any simpler than that, but it was delicious. Later editions featured boiled egg, bacon bits and garbanzo beans. My favorite combo!

Well, I'm off to enjoy my day!

    Your lettuce looks scrumptious! Does it smell good, too?
    I hope you had a happy summer day, friend!
