watermelon sorbet and a failure

Last week I told you I was going to make watermelon sorbet. I looked online at a few recipes and just decided to keep it simple. My watermelon was a bit old (not the best texture) and not super sweet. So I cut it into chunks, blended it up, strained it, and added 1/4 cup sugar for ever 4 cups watermelon puree. If your watermelon were sweet, I don't think it would need any sugar.

Then I put it in my ice cream maker, and we ate it. If you don't have an ice cream maker, you could just freeze it in a casserole dish, take it out, leave it out for a few minutes, and scrape it with a fork to make it like a slushie. The kids loved it!

As for the failure. I thought I'd try to make a skirt, a pregnant skirt. So I used some fabric I already had and made it, remade it, and still hated it. It's horribly ugly. I can't even show it to you. So frustrating to spend even a few hours on something, not to mention a bunch of fabric, and then hate the result. So I'm ordering one from Old Navy soon. Somehow I got rid of all my pregnant clothes from last time, except for 1 shirt, which is way to big for me this time. Weird.
Also - I made my appointment for my ultrasound for this Friday. I'll be letting you all know as soon as I can!
