This past weekend, I decided to get over my procrastination and start on one of my DIY projects for the nursery. Originally, I was going to sew the hems but considering I still need to learn how to sew on a machine, I decided to do the no sew method. If you google “DIY no sew crib skirt” you will get plenty of hits so I took bits and pieces of couple of website instructions to create my own skirt.
Unbeknownst to me, my honey likes to use bath bombs. A fact that I learned when we went shopping for some Christmas presents for church. Finding out that it costs $5-7 per bath bomb, I thought it would be a great little DIY project for Valentine’s Day. 😀
TGIF! To be completely frank about my fitness regime, it has been pretty non-existent. I could blame it on the pregnancy but it’s not true. I’m just plain lazy and full of excuses. 😱 Initially, I thought I would do a gym workout in the mornings to get my butt in shape (literally) but I always came up with excuses… “I didn’t sleep very well”, “I’m tired”, I can “cuddle” with my honey, etc… and let’s not mention after work.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (or so it feels like to me…lol) and I was looking around for cute ways to celebrate it with my honey.
Initially, I found examples from Dating Divas where you give a treat everyday for 14 days with a cute note. Then, I found other examples from Carie’s Craft Corner. And one with chips from My 3 Monsters. But none of them had templates that I could change which I did not like since my Valentine doesn’t eat all of those snacks. So what did I do? Create my own template of course!
I have a pair of casual shoes that I love. Yes, they are pink and it’s my least favorite color. But I really love them because they are so comfortable.
Then, I had a revelation this morning. Another reason that I love them is because I don’t have to tie them! No traditional shoe laces. So what did I do? Googled it, of course! Continue reading

Anyone that knows me knows that I research the crap out of everything. Pregnancy is no exception. When we first found out that we were pregnant, I spent hours and days just looking up stuff…. One web page would peak my interest in several other subjects and hyperlinks and there went my day.
I am currently 19 weeks pregnant and I started trying to think of everything that I needed to get done before the baby got here. So what did I do? Googled “Pregnancy checklist (or To do list)”. Of course, I couldn’t find one list that had everything I wanted or it had way more check off items than I thought was necessary. So I created my own list based off the several websites like parents.com, babycenter.com, fitpregnancy.com, etc. I took out what I didn’t need and put what I thought made sense. Attached is my basic list (as of 1/5/2016). Continue reading
