brooklynlimestone Drying some acorns in the oven. Does this actually work? #acorns #fall #crafts #experiment #isitfallyet 1d
  •   kikislc I'm going to be in NY in a couple wks. We should try and meet up if possible. 1d
  •   brooklynlimestone @kikislc definitely - let me know when you are coming 18h
  •   brooklynlimestone @auntiecakesevents do you just freeze or bake+freeze? 18h
  •   kmktaylor Nope but maybe I didn't do it long enough. Didn't try the freeze thing with it though. I've been too traumatized to try again! @brooklynlimestone 18h
  •   auntiecakesevents I have always done both, but that might be overkill. Baking should take care of them. I always wash mine first too, with a damp paper towel, and I open the oven door a few times while baking to let the moisture out. When you bake them, they shrink, so be prepared for all the caps to fall off. I just hot glue them back on. 17h
  •   brooklynlimestone @auntiecakesevents I baked for about 2 hours at 175 degrees last night. They turned kind of greyish so maybe I burned them? But most of the caps stayed on so maybe I didn't do it for long enough? They are in the freezer now. 16h
  •   auntiecakesevents Hhhmmmm, I have never had mine change color, and I have prob been doing this every fall for the past ten years or so. I typically bake mine around that temp too, so I don't think that would be it, maybe it has something to do with the moisture content when you started? Or the type of acorn? 13h
  •   auntiecakesevents I think I usually bake mine for about an hour, so you should have been long enough. 13h

brooklynlimestone Summer is fun but I'm ready for pine cone season. Who's with me? #bringonfall #pinecone #autumn #overthehumidity 2w
  •   lynnmihok True that!!! 2w
  •   chatelaine08 Autumn please. 2w
  •   andreab781 Noooo ️ Summer for life! 2w
  •   andreaserie I'm so over the summer! I'm ready to say goodbye to sand and traffic to get anywhere near the water! 2w
  •   4dsfromlhp Fall is my favorite season. 2w
  •   shuttersnappy Holla. I'm done with humidity and schlepping kids to mosquito-ridden playgrounds. Bring on the fall foliage and apple cider! 2w
  •   brooklynlimestone Oh the mosquitos are insane on my block and nothing I do makes a bit of difference. Over it! @shuttersnappy 2w
  •   fizzyparty Yes!! 2w

  •   sballalatak Thank you so much! It really is difficult to find the perfect grey. My weekend mission...find that color 2w
  •   andreaandboys Love those! 2w
  •   momendeavors Love your pillows and that wall color!! 2w
  •   killa_bonilla_ @therealjoshuarosario guest room color? 2w
  •   sandyp1267 The sun destroyed the fabric. It completely faded the fabric turning it a yellowish color. The shade was lined white. It was fine in the inside, but the outside which matters to me as well, was just ruined as if I tea stained the shade. 2w
  •   sandyp1267 PS - it was from JC Penny too. :-( 2w
  •   brooklynlimestone Oh that's a bummer @sandyp1267 - hope that doesn't happen to these but I don't see why they wouldn't suffer the same fate. Did it destroy the string mechanism that makes them cordless too? 2w
  •   sandyp1267 No it didn't affect that at all. I called JC Penny and they did say that the sun with time does yellow white window fabric coverings or fade dark fabric. 2w

  •   laurenzerbey No, we're still doing diapers at naps and night. I'm not in a rush on that. :) 2w
  •   brooklynlimestone @laurenzerbey I'm oddly not even that bothered by diapers at all but we have a lot of friends still not completely trained at 6,7,8 - so I totally agree with the authors approach, I'm just dreading sitting home for days chasing a pee trail ;) 2w
  •   laurenzerbey Yeah, it does seem like it gets harder for people after their child turns 3, so probably a good time. The at-home thing wasn't actually that bad. Avery was also good at just self-initiating and not asking or telling me she had to go. (Of course, that independence sometimes backfires now when it comes to going number 2!). 2w
  •   brooklynlimestone Thanks for the encouragement @laurenzerbey - I think we will try Labor Day weekend. Wish me luck. 2w
  •   keightyfour We just did this about two months ago with our almost 3 y.o. son. I think this book is great but you always have to tweak things to make them work for you. Good luck! :) one thing I think she is right on about is that a few days after you do it (and it seems like things are going great and you're done) you will get a period of resistance from your kid, but try to power through! 2w
  •   knockedupabroad We tried so many times and ways for V, but in the end, she just did it when she was ready. Would try every morning to use the potty and then all the time. The "captive" approach didn't work for us, gradual was better. She was 3.5 which is a little old by few accidents by now and none at night! 2w
  •   brooklynlimestone Thanks @keightyfour - that's a good tip. I'll remember to stay strong ;) 2w
  •   brooklynlimestone @knockedupabroad thanks meg. This book has a sort of different philosophy than most of what I've read so we shall see how it works. I do think it's more about me than it is about her. Id be fine with diapers for a lot longer but I think she is capable of taking the leap if I stay consistent but as you know, that is harder to do than it seems. 2w
