Does your family like dried fruit as easy go-to snacks? Preserving foods by drying is a great way to ensure foods don't go bad for long trips or during warm weather. Many people dehydrate food as a hobby rather than a necessity, but dried apple slices and apricots make delicious healthy snacks. You can make your own snacks using an electric dehydrator or even in the oven to remove moisture and create stable, nutritious snacks for your whole family.
Now that I am well into my third-trimester the "nesting" bug is in full force! I am desperate to have everything clean, organized, decorated and ready to go! I think I'm driving my husband nuts with our to do list :) Good thing he loves me and knows how to handle me. Obviously my baby girl's nursery is on the front of my mind these days. I wanted to give you all a little sneak peak tour of the nursery we've been preparing for our sweet girl! It's not "Pinterest perfect." It doesn't look like a high end designer baby girl nursery. It won't be featured in Baby Vogue (no I don't think that really exists). But we put our love, time, hard work and thought into creating a cozy, safe and beautiful space to care for our little girl and that's what is important. Being about a month out from my due date, it's nice to feel like everything is ready to welcome Baby Girl home! So without further ado... welcome to our Baby Girl's Nursery! Come on in, and I'll show you around.
I love taking something that was discarded and turning it into something beautiful. I found this chandelier at a local ReStore and if I was perfectly honest, my first thought was how ugly it was. True, I was seeing it out of context and it probably looked beautiful in its original Victorian style home; but at the recycling center surrounded by a variety of mismatched light fixtures, it just looked scrappy. I also balked at the price, $100, but after the second loop around the store I was inspired. A coat of spray paint could make this light fixture the focal point of a modern home.
