New Diapers!

These are my new 'Smarti Pants' diapers (er... not my diapers, but the twin's diapers!).  After my diaper disappointment with Kushies, I had a wild idea of making my own, but that was a failed attempt at best, with little time on my hands, I just couldn't get that project accomplished, so I was frantic looking online for a good replacement WITHOUT velcro!  That would wash and wear better than those other diapers I was using.  I found Smarti Pants by chance and thought I'd try them out, as there was a $20 off coupon for 10 diapers and soakers!  It was also free shipping, so I only paid 79.99 for 10 diapers!  That's a STEAL!!!

So far, so good, they are really working out well, and I LOVE snaps.  These are also less bulky than the other diapers I was using.  They're so good, I can't always tell if the diapers are wet, because they keep the wetness away from the babies' skin so well!  (Is this where I'm supposed to say that I'm not being paid for writing this? I read somewhere that when reviewing a product, you have to make a statement?) Anyway, on with this...

This is where I found them... At... Bulk Cloth, and just now, looking at that site, you can get 10 diapers for 69.99, but it doesn't include inserts, but you can use a folded regular cloth diaper as an insert too, if you wanted.   They arrived quickly, from the East Coast!  I think I got them in 3 or 4 days.  And they came with WONDERFUL directions on how to take care of the diapers.

You can read more about them at which offer them for a 
3 pack for 39.95 and 10 inserts for 19.95.... Bulk Cloth Diaper's Seconds is a great deal!

More pictures...

these are the inserts, micro fiber... do a GREAT job at soaking it up

here's how it looks as you're putting in the insert

Eagle Beach

Sunday afternoon was beautiful so we decided to drive out the road to Eagle Beach.  When we got there it was really windy and Connor didn't want to walk on the beach with Daddy and Michael, so the twins, Connor and I stayed in the Explorer.  There were a lot of geese hanging out there too...

Homemade Buns

I got this recipe from one of my favorite blogs -
Raising Olives and the recipe is here.

One thing she doesn't mention is how many buns you'll be making, I counted 41, so depends upon the thickness you like and the diameter you use (I used what she recommended - wide mouth mason jar ring).

Plus, it took me more time than she suggested, just because I have so many distractions in my home.  These turned out wonderful!  I've used them for sandwiches, toast and rolls, I haven't actually used them for hamburgers yet!

I guarantee that you'll love them!
