Taking a Break... to have a Baby

I know I have been missing the last couple of weeks. I had a little bit of preterm labor and now need to take it easy. I'm supposed to have my second child in April. So, I'll be taking a break from now until sometime in June. I have quite a few projects that I can not wait to share with all of you, like the wall we had taken between our kitchen and living room, crafts that I've done with my daughter and fun decorating things that I have made with the help of my Mom.

Can't wait to get back to writing and sharing all my adventures with you. See you in June...

Organization: Bath Toy Storage


I have hated the lack of bath toy organization in our bathroom for a long time now. It always looks like a hot mess. I searched Pinterest for a reasonably cheap solution to this problem and came across what you see above, a shower rod with wire baskets. Let me show you my bathroom storage before so you get an idea of where I was coming from.



Quite a sad place.

This pin did not have a working link, so I do not have an original website for you guys.


Materials:

-Wire Baskets - Organized Living Simple Basket, White $8 each
I bought this stuff on amazon, I've attached the link for anyone who is interested. All of these items were available for free super saver shipping.


Result:


All in all this was one of the easiest transformations that I have ever under took, taking a total of two minutes to put up. I love that the bath tub now looks and is more organized. The whole project cost me $35, which is more than I would usually spend, I'm sure if you shopped around you could find the items for cheaper.

Fun Food: Rainbow Cake

The rainbow cake recipe has been around Pinterest for a really long time, I've seen it in many different variations, rainbow cakes, cupcakes, pancakes, etc... I decided to make this for my daughter's birthday last year. It was really easy to make, it takes a little longer than making a plain cake, but so worth it.

Materials:

-White Cake Mix
-Food Coloring in various colors
-Cake Pan
-A few mixing bowls

Here is how I did made my cake.:
1. Mixed up a batch of white cake mix.
2. Separated the mixture into 6 different mixing bowls.
3. I added a different color food coloring to each bowl.
4. Poured each color into the cake pan one on top of each other.
5. Baked the cake.
