Goodbye Summer...Hello Fall

I meant to post this on the first day of fall last week; however, I had a very busy week until it came to a screeeeeching halt.  Yes, that is right, my last minute TO DO list for the baby has been put on hold.  I went to the doctor on Friday and learned that I have Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.  What does this mean?  It means that I have high blood pressure that can only be solved by having the baby.  However, the doctor isn't quite ready for me to deliver (18 days until my due date), so she has put me on bed rest.  BED REST!!!  Sigh...boring.  Luckily, I have wonderful friends and family who have been keeping me company. are a few memories from the summer.

Yummy In My Tummy: Easy Taco Bake

A while back, I posted a recipe for Italian Pizza Bake.  I decided to shake it up a little bit and make a Taco Pizza using the same basic recipe. 

First off, make the crust using 2/3 cup Bisquick, 1 egg, and 3 Tbsp of water.

Now for the sauce...I substituted salsa for the normal pizza sauce. 

Add a healthy layer of leftover taco meat (another great way to use leftovers).

Now you can add all your favorite toppings.  I used tomatoes, peppers, and onions.  YUM!

You can't forget the cheese!

Bake for 20-23 minutes in a 400 degree oven! 

Now how is that for an easy weeknight din din!

Nursery Update...Continued

There was one piece of very important furniture missing from the nursery.  I didn't have anyplace to contain her toys and books.  We all know that this child is going to be spoiled and her toys will be endless.  Lucky for me, I found this adorable piece that matches the colors in the nursery. 

As you can see, it is already stuffed with all the gifts from the baby showers.  I still haven't found homes for all the baby's necessities. It is most definitely a work in progress.  I better get a move on...less than a month to go!

These Boots Were Made For Walking

This past week, I was lucky enough to have not one but TWO baby showers.  One was thrown by my sisters (you can read all about it at Gal in the Middle) and the other by my co-workers at the chip factory.  I will have to say that I am totally blessed to have such giving friends and family. 

These was most definitely a couple common themes at the baby showers.  I would have to say that people love to buy baby girl clothes because between the two showers, I received over 65 outfits for the baby.  HOLY COW!  This baby is going to be one well dressed child.  Good thing that I loved playing dress up with my dolls growing up!  Here is picture of what the closet in the nursery looks like post-baby showers (there are more clothes in the changing table). 

Another common theme from the showers was boots.  I think it must be the farm thing.  All farm girls need boots, and this child is no exception.  Check theses out...

These were a gift from GAL.  The funny thing is that my HHBL hates when he sees grown women wearing these types of boots.  Good thing he isn't in charge of dressing the baby.  She is definitely going to be showing these off.

These were a gift from my partner in crime (PIC) at work.  Can you believe and John Deere combined into such ultimate cuteness.  Daddy has to love these.

Another pair of incredibly cute boots.  Daddy is happy because these have no pink on them whatsoever!

She did get a few pairs of other types of foot wear; all of which are super duper cute.  If only they made shoes these cute in Big Momma sizes!

Nursery Update: Getting Closer

We had this cheap bedside table in our spare room at the house.  Since my HHBL is so handy, I asked him if he would sand it down and refinish it to match the rest of the furniture in the baby's nursery.  Of course, he obliged and here is the final result. 

Now I have the perfect place to put a lamp and baby monitor for the room. 

Stay tuned...we have done a lot of work lately in the nursery!

Random Shots: One Pathetic But Cute Dog

I was looking through all the pictures on my digital camera from this summer and found a bunch of random shots of my doggie Zuma.  My sis, Gal, inspired me to share with you all these random photos. I guess it won't be long until these random shots of her are replaced by ones of the baby (my due date is just 37 days away).

The Great Garage Sale: Baby Stuff Galore

The majority of the items that I bought when I was at the garage sales were for the baby.  I got several onesies, bibs, and other little outfits for between $.25 and $1.00 each.  I probably spent about $12.00- $15.00 total on baby clothes.  Off the top of my head, I got at least 4 sleepers, 8 onesies, 2 hats, 2 bibs, a jean jacket, 2 pairs of jeans, 2 fleece zip-up sweaters, and the cutest pair of boots in the world!

Total Spent: $1.00

Total Spent: $3.00

Total Spent: $.25 each

My momma was looking for a spare Pack-N-Play for all her grand-babies.  She already has one but decided it might be a good idea to get another spare.  Guess what?  I found one at the garage sale!

Total Spent: $20.00

It has definitely been used but with a good wash down and a new cover for the mat, it will be good to go! I would have to say that it was all money well spent!

The Great Garage Sale: Items for the Nursery

I ended up getting some super cute curtains for the nursery when I was hitting the garage sales last weekend.

Total Spent: $3.00

These curtains match the nursery perfectly!  They are from JCPenney, so I am sure they were orignally much more than the $3.00 that they cost me!  My HHBL even ended up liking them, and he normally hates curtains! 

Total Spent: $1.00

This little basket is being used right now to hold the baby's barrettes and head bands.  It was too cute to pass up! 

Can you see a theme?  There seems to be a lot of pink going on in the nursery!
