Can I have some more chocolate?

 

When my son was in first or second grade, we used to stop at a coffee shop near his school for breakfast.  He would often get a chocolate croissant.

One morning while he was eating, he shared that he wished that the layer of chocolate went all the way to the edges.  He didn’t like the part that was just bread.  Luckily I did and he would give me the crusts and I’d happily eat them, scavenger that I am.

I suggested to my son that he could tell the coffee shop folks about his comment.  He told them and do you know that they started making them with more chocolate?

The moral of the story?  Speak up!  And, more chocolate is always better!

 

Heart Hat

I made heart hats for my nieces.  This idea was inspired by these adorable heart socks from Erica at Caught on a Whim.  Check out her fantastic blog at Caught on a Whim.  She’s got so many great things there.

I set out to make the socks but couldn’t find any good socks!  So I made hats instead.  I bought simple hats, 1 piece of red felt.  I already had embroidery thread.  I had only planned to sew the hearts on but once I was done, decided to add initials.  They were very easy and fun!  Thanks for the inspiration Erica.  :)
