Creepy Cat Lady Practices for the Real Thing!

A bit of help...

By now we have heard about the devastating floods in Australia. Thousands of people losing everything in the floods. Including many who have lost their lives. It's such a sad thing to see happening and you feel rather helpless.
There is an etsy artist (and I'm sure there are more) who is donating 100% of her sales to a family of four with a baby on the way who have lost everything in the flood. If you would like to check out her shop you can find some really cute garland!
Go visit This Neck of the Woods for all her cute stuff for sale.
I bought this super cute garland for the baby's room today:

TWD ~ Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Oh my it's been awhile since I've made a Tuesday with Dorie recipe! Let's rewind a bit... in August I got married, went back to work after a month off, and then found out i was pregnant! And not long after the morning sickness set it, but it wasn't just morning it was all day long! UGH. Soon Christmas was here and then off to our honeymoon in Hawaii. When we got back we decided to move into my husbands house and put my house on the market. Which meant a bathroom remodel and moving into a new house. Soooo.... now that we are all on the same page, you can see it's been a bit busy and not a lot of time to bake, or even the desire to bake when i was really sick to my stomach. I am feeling so much better now and ready to get back into the swing of things. I haven't actually made the Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins yet, but I do have the lemons and I'm ready to go. Just need to find my muffin pans! :) Stay tuned...
It's been ages since my last post. We've been to Hawaii and back, moved into a new house and had a bathroom remodeled. So needless to say it's been a bit crazy. The baby has been kicking up a storm, big kicks every so often. We bypassed the butterfly flutters and went right to karate kicks.
I would blog more about Hawaii, but I have no pictures to post... yet! i need to find all the cords and download those babies. But yes, we had the most wonderfully relaxing time. The Big Island was beautiful, sunny and warm. It is hard to come back to freezing cold and snow ALL THE TIME!
I am getting adjusted to living in a new house. We only brought our clothes, tv and had a new bed delivered. We were in desperate need of a new bed... and i love it! Slowly i am going to make this house into a home and I'm super excited to get started on the baby's room! This weekend will be a lovely 3 day weekend! We plan on making cinnamon rolls and lazing about, Saturday night we have dinner …
