Since I have a baby on the way and going through the process of buying a house, I have been wasting spending time on the internet looking at home decor and decorating ideas on a budget. I love all the free printables available online! So many cute things that just need to be printed and framed.
Here’s a list I have compiled (and still compiling) on Pinterest. I have a few invites left if you need one, just send me a message or email.

Here are some of the free printables you can find on my Pinterest (click the image to view the different printables and links)
Seems like I haven’t been too productive these last couple of weeks. I pick up the house, I babysit my Godchild (who just turned 1!), make dinner (nothing new or exciting) and chill with the husband.
My pregnancy at this stage is super easy; feeling pretty normal except my stomach is growing and I still can’t stomach steak or bacon. Our little guy is moving around lots lately, which is always neat (except when he kicks in certain places that shouldn’t be kicked!).
We have started looking into purchasing our first home. We just started viewing potential properties this last Saturday. It’s interesting to see other people’s style and preference. House hunting also reaffirms that fact that I don’t really care to spend a lot of money. Our rental lease is up at the end of April and I am due mid-May, so it will all be very interesting to see how the last months of my pregnancy look like. I am generally a pretty laid back person but I wonder if I will be feeling rushed and overwhelmed; hopefully not.
Sunday we start our Bradley birthing classes, in the evening, much to the chagrin of my SF 49er football fan husband. He keeps asking me if the class will happen during the Super Bowl as well.
I have library books I need to read and three quilts that need to be completed; all of which are in different stages of completion.
Since I’ve been pretty boring, here are some great sites I have been frequenting lately:
Better After blog - an easy to read site filled with Before and After shots of homes, rooms, and furniture - most that the average Jane can replicate
The Gawkerverse – Craftgawker, foodgawker, etc. Easy to view pictures and projects and lots of great blogs.
I have been on the hunt for natural and safe beauty products. Sometimes choosing more natural and organic products means you have to pay a little more. These recipes can save you money and you can make some for other people too!
