Pinterest is a huge help in my day-to-day life, I use stuff from it every single day from recipes to fitness routines to just cool lifestyle ideas. Every week I like to round up a few things that I really liked recently.

Inspirational and Educational:

I love these types of to do lists! Now if only I’d do them.

My husband got me flowers for Mother’s Day and I used this recipe for flower food to keep them going, and they still look beautiful.

I love the colors of this capsule wardrobe, I just might switch the cream for white personally.

I like how everything goes together without being overly matchy.

I’m seeing a theme in my taste for the week. If only I had a waist anymore.

Too Good to Waste by Victoria Glass

This book will be released on May 16, 2017. I received a copy through NetGalley.

Who hasn’t gone through their fridge and got depressed seeing all the produce they meant to use but forgot about? This book attempts to deal with all those food scraps you need to use up like that bag of wilted lettuce. It also shows you how to use things like squash skins and empty pea pods.

This is a great book for an adventurous cook who wants to use everything they can. Unfortunately for me, I just don’t buy and cook half of the foods in here. But take a look and maybe you’ll find inspiration for your next meal to use up those scraps in the fridge.

I’m making cake for our twin nephews again this year, and they’re into firetrucks this time. Last year it was Elmo. I’ll be making a sheet cake in the shape of a firetruck like the one below, and two dozen fire cupcakes.

I’ve been pretty bad with eating healthy so far in my pregnancy, though I try. I’m going to work this week on healthier snacks and lunches, and get a lot more fruits and vegetables in. This avocado toast with scrambled eggs looks delicious.

I also like the look of this tuna and white bean salad maybe for a sandwich.

I keep looking for good quinoa recipes because I’m not the biggest fan of it, and this looks really easy and delicious.

For style this week, you can see I’ve been into dark florals and skirts.

These look so good. I might have to break out my underused food processor and try these!

I love this idea, especially for baby. It looks like a great easy lunch idea.

I’m not the biggest fan of soup, but this looks delicious. I might try chickpeas instead of white beans.

Style:

I wish I could pull off outfits that look this effortless.

Lace is always a good idea.

We might be taking a quick trip to visit family later in the month to the southern states, and I found this outfit while looking for travel wardrobe ideas. I need to find some good simple sneakers.

It’s A…

Sorry the blog has been so quiet lately. I’m working on it but things have been a bit crazy around here. It’s been a mess of house renovations, baby stuff and my cousin is getting married this weekend so there was present buying, showers to attend and relatives coming into town before the actual event tomorrow.

But on to the news you clicked on this for:

Yesterday we went for our first (and only) ultrasound where the baby is perfectly on track for growth, everything seems normal and healthy, and the ultrasound tech told us with certainty if it’s a boy or a girl.

I’m always looking for cleaning schedules I’m not going to follow, this seems simple enough.

This is a big one for me, I don’t want my kids to be so dependent on technology.

When the cleaning schedule fails and you have guests coming…

I adore tortellini and spinach but I can’t stand butternut squash. This might be good?

Scallops with orzo and asparagus. I am so glad it’s asparagus season again!

There’s nothing I like more than a bunch of greens, but maybe if you add some shrimp to it…

More asparagus! It goes great with pasta.

I’m interested in doing baby-led weaning when it comes time for that. Read up on it, it’s super interesting!
