Baby Break!!

Pin It Now!

Hey everyone! Sorry for being MIA lately, but Im finally down to my last week of pregnancy and have been SUPER busy getting things ready..I've literally been a nesting whore (yea that totally describes me). I've been cleaning, baking, and getting the last minute necessities for this little guy! How I'm still carrying this judge belt around, I have no idea...Due date is set for the 23rd  but everyone is saying he's coming this next week. My wonderful friends even have a pot going on this! So we will see..

I will be out for a little while being a new mom and adjusting. I'd say around 2 weeks and I should be back at it. Thank you everyone for your support and well wishes! Ill be sure to post pictures of the while family once he's here :)

Manic Mondays: Fusing Plastic

Pin It Now!
I would really like to thank the first person who thought of ironing plastic bags together to make a thick piece of plastic that could be used for about 10 GAZILLION things....But I have to sleep sometime so I'll just list 10 things at the end of this tutorial.I didn't use any bags for THIS tutorial though. I had about 6 Dollar Tree plastic tablecloths left over from my baby shower so instead of throwing them away...I kept them! And I wasn't sure what for exactly till this weekend when I came across an article for fusing plastic bags. I thought I'd give it a shot with the tablecloths, and come to find out...It works!

What's Cookin' Wednesdays: Yellow Jasmine Rice

Pin It Now!

Last week, hubby came home raving about how one of his co-workers makes some mean Jasmine rice. Like it's that hard to make...I'm a huge fan of Mexican rice, but I'm open minded and hubby isn't a big rice eater so it surprised me he liked it so much. And it's obviously healthier, which I don't mind one bit! His co-worker chef just uses butter with the rice but I decided to take it up a notch (watch out Emeril) and add some turmeric to make it more of a Thai dish. Which complimented perfectly with our rice noodle soups (which were gluten free btw). YUM!!

Manic Mondays: DIY Produce Bag

Pin It Now!

We have started to become regulars at our local Farmer's Market these past few months. I love the idea of fresh produce, meats, and eggs. Plus all the handmade soaps and beauty products are wonderful treasures!! Only thing is I hate bringing home plastic bags. I have yet to accumulate enough reusable grocery bags for our weekly grocery store trips (we eat a alot) so we have waaaay more than enough plastic bags.
 Thanks to Pinterest  though, I found a way to make my own reusable produce bag that I can take with me to the Farmer's Market. And it's out of OLD T-SHIRTS. Yay for being cheap frugal!!!!!
