the baby mantids hatched yesterday-

So about 2 months ago I found this weird thing under my rocking chair outside.  It turns out this is a mantid egg case!  So every other time I would take Mitzu outside I would check and check to see if anything came out of it...and nothing.  Finally I gave up thinking it was a dud or maybe not even an egg case!  Then...yesterday...I went outside mid-afternoon to see bugs all over my rocker.  Well, they weren't just any bugs!  They were baby, itty bitty mantids!!!!!  I ran for my camera, took lots of photos and even some video!
 This one was on my arm!!!
on top of the rocker!

New Ideas.

I think I'm going to try something new.  So I've been maintaining both this blog and my other "domestic adventures blog", but the fact of the matter is I haven't been "maintaining" or updating or anything.  I need something a little new and something to get me thinking creative again.  I've decided to combine my domestic adventures, my baking, my photography, and whatever wacky things I come up with right here. In case you missed it on my other blog, this is why I've been so neglectful: Meet Baby M!  He/She will be here in July.  We find out soon if Baby M is a he or a she so we will be sharing with you soon! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Some things I've learned so far: 1) If you are you will be extra tired for 3 days after that 2) Yea some heartburn happens but if it's bad enough you can't lie down you are probably eating/drinking something that isn't getting past your stoma
