Painting the Nursery


You’ve no idea how long it felt like I waited to paint my baby’s nursery. We had to wait until the spare bed was moved out of the room, which was planned to be out before the wedding in December. But then we had people stay with us over the wedding and that was put […]

Painting the Crib


If you are anything like me, you try to be as thrifty as possible. I like nice things, but also know that money doesn’t grow on trees. So when it comes to buying things, if it makes more sense to buy second hand and put my own special touch on it, that is what I’ll […]

Wedding on a Budget


Both the MR and I knew that when we got married, we didn’t want a huge production where good money is spent on a party rather than more important things. Sure, you only get married once (Or that’s the plan at least) and might as well celebrate your day as best you can. But neither […]

A Look Back at the Second Trimester


My first trimester was not so fun, and being my first pregnancy, I had no idea what to expect in my second. Depending on when you count it, the second starts at around 13/14 weeks, and ends at 27/28 weeks. All I can say is ‘Whew, we’re on the home stretch!’ I can’t wait to […]
