  4. Ashley says

    I actually read this post around 6:30 AM on Thursday, but I didn’t think it would be a good idea to be first so here I am! HOT – I absolutely adore aprons. Not only are they extremely functional (save me from a good number of splatters and such), but they are also incredibly adorable.

    Plus, I feel like aprons can say a lot about who you are – for example, my dad has a black BBQ apron, my mom a red Betty Crocker-like apron, and my little sister a pink frilly one with white lace. And personally LOVE the cupcake one above – the sleeves are my favorite!

    Thanks so much for everything!

  114. says

    Well, when aprons look like that they are certainly HOT. I’d love one and would certainly feel like a yummy mummy cake maker in it. Those sleeves and neckline are simply delightful. It makes me want to do some baking now. Domestic goddess certainly springs to mind.
