miss undomestic

The other day I sat down to lunch and while flipping through the channels stumbled upon The Martha Stewart show. That woman has skills. Her craftiness is so over my head, but it's still fun to dream that maybe somewhere deep down in me I have the ability to carve a rotating pumpkin carousel with loads of glitter.

My odds of winning the lottery are better.

As I'm munching on my PB&J I cannot turn away. This show sucks you in I tell you. I also think this might have been the episode where Snoop Dog (is my spelling right on that) was the guest. Which friends that was a real treat because Snoop Dog shared some grammar and parenting tips with everyone. I'm going to have be sure to journal those words of wisdom and refer back to them when we decide to join the parenthood club. I can then tell everyone that we are parenting with the Snoop method.

But I became fascinated watching Martha polish these drop dead gorgeous apples and place them in a bowl for a table decoration. I'm thinking this is Megan doable and not only will we be become much healthier with our apples, but we will be left with a very Martha Stewarty looking display that will surely gather up some oohs and aahs.



Tada! Just don't look too close because my apples that I bought from a big bag looked like they were drop kicked. I don't think Martha would approve of my drop kicked apple display.


I think it gives it a bit of character though.

Oh hilarious! You know, not every apple can be a Martha Stewart apple.

I think it looks great! And if anyone has time to examine your apples, you should ask them to find a hobby! And then, ask them where you can get so much extra time :)

Very nice! You could also just buy some fake green apples for your bowl - that's what I did - but don't tell Martha!

Bruised apples - it would be the center of my cenerpiece too!!! Life aint perfect - even in Marth'a world - I'm sure!!!

And that's why I would put plastic apples in a bowl anyways :-)
