we call her giada

we really do.
she loves to be in the kitchen
usually baking.

a sweet friend sent her this way too cute apron
& a fabulous recipe book from anthropologie.

dan requested some oatmeal cookies for father's day
so she was quick to jump on that one!

& ps. 
those are her eyes.
without color contacts.
just her eyes.
lucky girl

this cookbook is entirely fabulous!
full of places to journal about special events and meals
and memories.
i think i may need to grab one for myself too!

love you madi
so glad your love language is making cupcakes, cookies & cakes too!

ps. we arrived home last night from our week at the beach.
all safe & sound.
how i treasure those eight days with the ones i love the most.
i probably should apologize in advance
for the next several posts 
will be full of images from those days

I love to bake too, i don't do well on the cooking end of it(except when I use one of your recipes:) ). I love cookies, cakes and bars! What a cute apron and wonderful book; I may have to check one of those out!:)

Madi is so beautiful; love her rich blue eyes! :)

I can't wait to see more pictures of the trip!! :)
Take care! Jodi

Dear Paige,

I love the apron (the color and the pleats) and the pattern/color of that cookbook.

She should also set up an account
on All Recipes. There is a link on my blog under Organization.

She is just lovely!!!

Teresa Sheeley said...

She looks like she could already be on set for her very own cooking show, and those eyes would just captivate an audience! :)


Maggie said...

i've always thought she was so stunning with those eyes! a real knock out for sure.

Christina said...

She is so beautiful! And I just love to see her having fun in the kitchen!

Vickie said...

She does have absolutely gorgeous eyes. My little 4 year old "grand" daughter has eyes like that, they are literally blue beacons. I wish I could see her more, her eyes are always laughing and sparkly. Madison is beautiful and lucky you she can cook! Can't wait to see the beach photos. We just returned from our beach house also. Have a great week.

Those eyes! Gorgeous girl. I love a girl that enjoys spending time in the kitchen. You can send her my way if you get tired of her.

Tiffini said...

your such a lucky mama...she's beautiful and an added bonus that she can cook/bake so well.
I know about the eyes. Grace is the same way. Her eyes are so blue I get asked if Nikki ( my oldest ) photoshopped her eyes. She never touches them. Lucky girls:)

Kat said...

Yay! Love this post. Love your sweet girl, perhaps, you, Madison and I should get together some time soon and swoon over cookbooks! So glad you are back from the beach and super excited to see your fabulous pictures. Madi is such a beautiful girl, both inside and out. Just like her precious Mama!

Kim said...

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, you've got yourself one awesome mama in the making - keep it up girl!!

Gorgeous eyes!!! That apron is so cute and so fitting for your little chef. I adore that book and may have to get one for myself. Now I want some oatmeal cookies.
