Happy Finds

Being home-bound is really starting to get on my nerves. I’m not supposed to drive while on the combination of medicines I’m taking for my hyperemesis, plus I rarely feel like leaving the comfort of my recliner and pajamas. I’m getting bored and lonely sitting in this house with minimal interaction to the outside world. Here are some random things that have made me happy today…

Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs Recipe

May or may not be a good idea to learn how to make…

Make at your own risk.

Baby Ballerina Slippers from Homemade by Jill

I’m really hoping I have a need to make these in the near future.

We won’t find out for another month or so, but these are on the list if it’s a girl.

Don’t tell Jonah, but I’m really hoping for a girl.

P.S.–If it is a boy, I’ll be fine too. I’ve got tons of hand-me-downs.

She always comes up with the greatest ideas.

Love the little lightning bolts and rainbow pom-poms!

Doxology Print from Gus & Lula on Etsy

I love this print. I can’t remember how I originally found the Gus & Lula Blog, but I’m so glad I did.

They are traveling to get their babies (boy & girl) from Ethiopia very soon.

Will you join me in praying for them?

And while we’re talking about Gus & Lula…just check out the Bunting Blankets she made to go with the Doxology Print.

Blame it on the cuteness, but I think I will have to copy.

Sound of Music Flash Mob

I was literally bursting with excitement about this one. And yes, I was singing along.

So there you have it…some things that made me smile. Hopefully they make you smile too!

And maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to get out of the house soon and have some fun…and get my eyebrows waxed. Seriously. I actually paid attention in the mirror today. It’s terrible.


  1. Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs!!!??? I don’t know whether to love you or hate you. I can tell you one thing my hubby will LOVE you. He eats through those things as fast as you can unwrap them. They are some crazy deliciousness!

  2. Jill @ Live Laugh Blog says:

    I’m so sorry you’re still so sick with your HG. Did you stay that way with your son the entire pregnancy? We’re at 20 weeks and about 16, 17 weeks I was finally able to start eating some. Al long as I have the Zofran every 6 hours, I’m okay. But if I miss, it’s no fun.
    Prayers for an easier pregnancy to come your way!
    (By the way – we found out yesterday we’re having our third girl!)

    • Thanks Jill! I was like this until around 28 weeks with my first pregnancy. (Ugh, I’m only 13 weeks, 5 days!) It feels like it started immediately for me this time. I also found out earlier with this pregnancy so I feel like I’ve been suffering a lot longer even though I’m not very far along. I’m on the pump still, and have a whole crazy cocktail of other things I’m on, too. I was in the hospital last weekend, and have felt better this week, but the medicines are making me so sleepy. So, the choice is throw-up or sleep….I choose sleep 🙂 Congratulations on another girl!!! Maybe I’ll feel like sewing and make those ballet slippers for your little one if I have another boy! They’re too cute not to make!

  3. I came over from “It’s Almost Naptime” and wanted to say, “Hey!” I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far, and I intend to come back!

    • Welcome to the “Happy Brown House” Nikki! You’ll find all sorts of things here…I can’t seem to stick to one subject! Adoption, crafts, preschool activities, recipes, and ramblings…everything under one roof! Thanks for popping over and introducing yourself!

  4. I’ve been up and down lately and posted on happy things too:-) Following you cute blog.

  5. Thank you so much for featuring my print! I’d love to see how your bunting blanket turns out if you do end up making one!

    • You’re so welcome! Praying for you as you travel! Do the Ethiopian adoption cutbacks affect your court date? I’ve been worried for you as I know you’re traveling. We’re so early in the process, that lots can happen still.
