kade’s room

In just a few short weeks, Kade will be here!  Lucky for him, his room is all ready!  I gave you a sneak peek of his room here, but now I’ve got the full story.  I didn’t do an idea board for this room–Melody (Kade’s mommy) and I just did lots of shopping and emailing about ideas and concepts for the room.

What do you think?  Isn’t the rug awesome!?  Melody found it for $160 at Overstock.com–pretty nice, huh?

On another fun note, Reni posted about my new business cards on the Bliss and Tell blog.  Check out the post here— I can’t wait to get my cards!  Reni is actually doing another giveaway on her blog for 100 custom designed business cards.  She’s awesome to work with and is an amazing designer.  All you have to do to enter is like B & T on Facebook or subscribe to their blog.  Be sure to stop by!

I’m looking forward to a week of perfect weather!!  Hope your weather is awesome too!

this and that

There’s a bunch of “this and that” going on, so I thought I”d use this post to catch you up and get your feedback.

For starters, my latest post went live on Dr. Mommy Online yesterday–check it out here.  It’s all about gallery walls!

Also, I don’t think I told you, but I won a giveaway a few weeks ago on Freckled Laundry.  It was for 100 free business cards designed by Reni at Bliss and Tell Branding Company–super awesome!

She just sent me first revisions this week and I have two options that I can’t decide between!

Option 1:

or Option 2:

I would so appreciate it if you could comment on which one is your favorite–it would definitely help make my decision easier!

On a random note, it has been unseasonably warm here.  I think it may have reached 80 today, and we even had a thunder storm.  Everything is in bloom…even flowers that usually bloom in the summer!

Is it really only February?!

My allergies have been going crazy {boo} and I can’t seem to kick it…  My chiropractor suggested a home remedy involving garlic cloves, coconut oil, and olive oil–apparently you make a paste and then put it on your feet {with socks}…hmmm not too sure about that.

Did I mention I hate pollen?.

Asa’s brother, Kade, is due in just a few short weeks.  Although all of the furniture in his nursery was pre-exisiting (from when Asa was a baby), he did get new bedding, window treatments, and some accessories.  I’ve been working with Melody to select fabrics and accessories and it’s almost ready!  Here’s a sneak preview of the room.

{more pictures coming!}

Finally, I thought I’d share this great recipe I found on Pinterest.  Every Monday night, my sisters-in-law and I get together for dessert and the Bachelor.  It was my turn to provide dessert this Monday so I made gooey cinnamon sticks:

The recipe calls for a can of pre-made pizza dough, but I bought a can of pre-cut bread-stick dough instead.  The garlic spread was in a separate container so I didn’t have to worry about garlic flavored cinnamon sticks.

Check out the recipe HERE–it’s so easy and quick!

Well…if that’s not a random post, I’m not sure what is!

Have a great weekend, friends!
