Cooking and baking have been two of my favorite pastimes for several years. I can’t remember how many times I put dirty shirts covered with flour and who knows what else in the laundry, much to my mother’s chagrin. She always said, “Just wear an apron!” But I would usually forget during the hustle of meal preparation.

 In the last couple years, I’ve acquired several aprons, and subsequently I’ve become a much more faithful apron-wearer. Although I still occasionally forget until bacon grease spatters all over! 🙂 Instead of changing from my nicer clothes to a “cooking” outfit, all I have to do is put on an apron.

My sister Gretchen is doing an apron blog carnival on her blog, so now I get to share with you the aprons I love to wear!

One of my sister’s aprons

This polka dot apron was given me for my fifteenth birthday, and it even has a J monogrammed on the pocket. Polka dots and pink…you can’t get much better than that!

I love this apron! My cousin Abbie brought it back with her from Africa. She and my cousin Melissa have similar ones, but we have yet to snap a picture of all three of us wearing them at the same time.

As I was taking the pictures, I found this apron stuffed in our official apron and hot pads drawer. I don’t think I’ve ever worn it before, but I love the pink, so next time I’ll have to give it a try!

    I love your pink and polka dots one; very cute! :)And the African one is amazing!Aprons are so handy to have on (esp. when one remembers to put them on before cooking!)

    You and your aprons are adorable. ;)I think that last one might have been from Great Grandma Alma's collection–that was her signature style. And a picture of you and Abbie (and one with Melissa whenever you three are together again) in your aprons is an absolute must. Looking through pictures for this week's posts, I was sad to realize that, as much as we girls and our moms and grandmas have worn aprons through the years, we apparently usually take them off before we take pictures!
