A zig zag chevron baby quilt
- Published on Wednesday, 25 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsWhy, yes. My son most certainly does need another navy and white quilt. Why do you ask?
After finishing the houndstooth quilt, I made this zig zag chevron quilt for Henry in May and scheduled a post about it on May 25, Henry's birthday. I had planned to finish binding it the week Henry was born. Needless to...
A family vacation
- Published on Tuesday, 24 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsRyan and I typically take a vacation every summer:
- 2011 Montreal
- 2011 West Coast road trip (Washington, Oregon and California)
- 2010 Southern Illinois and Missouri
- 2009 Atlanta
- 2008 San Francisco
However, with Henry arriving this year, we didn't plan a trip. (Good thing, too, since he made his arrival a...
- Published on Wednesday, 18 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsI have had several comments and emails asking whether I would post Henry's birth story. I honestly never really read birth stories on other blogs. Mostly, because they are long. (Just being honest.) And also because I figured that every birth is so different.
However, I started writing this post in June and in the...
Pretty painted porch railings
- Published on Tuesday, 17 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsOne more check in curb appeal progress. And this is a biggie.
I finally painted the railing that Ryan built in May. And boy, oh boy. I'm glad that's done.

My new favorite lunch
- Published on Friday, 13 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsBeing home with my little Henry means that lunch has changed. I obviously try to eat at home more often (although I still go out more than I should). The problem? I'm not really a cold cut kind of girl, and I didn't want to make big meals for one.
Then, I took Henry to a local coffee shop a few weeks ago to get out of...
Chick Fil A nuggets at home
- Published on Wednesday, 11 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsIf we are going out to eat and if Ryan is choosing, you can bet your bippy that Chick Fil A is on the top of the list. And we ate at the local Chick Fil A so often during my pregnancy that I'm surprised Henry didn't come out smelling like a chicken nugget.
And while we will still frequent our local establishment (far...
Barn board inspiration
- Published on Tuesday, 10 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsRyan has made big progress on the barn deconstruction front. He got it completely down and after three trailer loads on a 104 degree day, it's stacked up on our property ready for construction.
The plan is to pour a concrete foundation and then reassemble on the property. Although he won't be reassembling it exactly as...

A bean burger
- Published on Friday, 06 July 2012
Authors: Kim @ NewlyWoodwardsWhen I spotted this chipotle black bean burger on Iowa Girl Eats, I knew I had to try it. After my complete bean burger failure last year, I was a bit scared. But, Ryan and I love black beans, so I figured it was worth a try.
It helped that I had everything on-hand. (Love it when that happens.)
The verdict? Yummy!...
