Annalie’s new apron

April 8th, 2008

When we got home from our trip to visit Troy’s sister and her family in North Carolina (more on that to come soon), there was a fun surprise waiting for us from Anna, AKA BeachMama: she sent Annalie one of her handmade kids’ aprons!

Apron from BeachMama!

Annalie was thrilled and wanted to put it on immediately and paint. And even though it was late and we probably should have been getting ready for bed, I couldn’t say no. Because you know, sometimes when the urge to create art strikes, you just gotta give in.

Anna was sweet enough to include a couple of Aero bars for me, which may or may not have already been eaten. I plead the fifth. But Aero bars aside, isn’t that the coolest apron? It’s really well-made, with adjustable ties at the waist and neck, and it’s lined to make the apron more durable. I love the fabric choice, too. Anna remembered that yellow is one of my favorite colors and that I like dots.

Want your own kids’ apron, or maybe a reusable coffee cup cozy? You’re in luck! Anna has opened her own Etsy shop! Go check it out.

Thanks again, Anna!

    The apron is lovely!!

    I’m scared to click the Etsy link… I might end up with 20 aprons!

  2. Ever since I first read a mention of Aero bars on your site, I’ve been wanting to try them. Well, the other day I found some at Cost Plus World Market. I got a milk chocolate one and a mint chocolate one. I told my husband I would split them with him, but he’s been working such long hours, he’s never home until way late.

    I may have to just try them on my own and then go buy some more. ;-)

    Bethany, thank you so much for the compliments. I am so happy that Annalie loves her apron and that the colour choices were just right. I will be posting a few more aprons on my Etsy site this week as I only have one there right now.

    And Aero bars are deadly! The worst part is that they are right beside the cash, the best part is that they come in King Size, Extra Large, Regular and Singles (100 calorie pack). I heart chocolate, can you tell?

    Thanks again Bethany!

    I LOVE the apron! Baby Bug got a green one a while back. I wish I would have blogged it now! Beach Mama is the BEST.
