What a week!  There are sooo many fun things to report on that happened last week; from being featured on a local news story, to finding out the gender of our new little one to revealing it with my class, to planning the new nursery.  So.much.fun.

I plan on doing a few specialized posts about all of the above, but until then, here are a few snippets:

Thursday I was featured on a Channel 6 story about making your own skin care products at home.  More info to follow on this, but I had a blast with Tara, the producer, as she and a camera crew came to our house and taped me playing around with food.  What more could a girl ask for?  I loved it!

What a great weekend!  

We had a blast with berries, buddies and beautiful weather.  Here are a few snapshots of our time at Southern Hill Farms (more detail about the farm coming in an Orlando Moms Blog post soon!).  Now to get busy making some new recipes with the 5 lbs. of berries we took home.  Eeeek!

Dollar Decor - Kiddo Edition

Of course the inspiration for this post comes from where else?  Pinterest!  It's funny.  I kind of have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.  

I love to look, gather ideas, plan and flat out day dream when looking at Pinterest boards.  I love taking ideas and running with them and then creating something original and unique from that initial starting point.  I don't love how much time I spend pinning those said ideas sometimes and/or making an exact replica of anything I see.  I will even try to tweak recipes so they aren't exactly the same.  It's just one of my pet peeves.

This dollar decor idea however, is 100% customizable and can be used in hundreds of ways (see the bottom of this post for more useful ideas).  With Nursery #2 on my mind lately, I am always looking for inexpensive, yet creative wall art.  This teacher friendly website hit both dead on.

Wow!  What a difference a week makes!  Last Saturday morning we were bundled up hunting Easter eggs in 30 degree weather and this weekend we were at the beach with temps reaching close to 90!  Everett enjoyed both equally; as long as he's outside, he's a happy camper no matter what the event or temperature!
