I am Totally Nesting!













Today was such a wonderful day: 


- church
- chopped veggies from our csa box
- put together Harper's bassinet (pack n play)
- sweep/steam mop the kitchen floor
- lunch at the Chattanooga Market - Famous Nater's Famous Good Sandwiches (delicious!)  - Starbuck's Half - Price Frappes and apple fritter (for me)...old fashioned donut (for nathan)
- some shopping - Target and Academy Sports Store. 


Once we got home, I felt the need to clean! The above pictures are my clean kitchen. I reorganized everything on my counter. I got 3 glass canisters for Mother's Day - filled them with lentils, brown rice and black beans. I will be ordering labels for them very soon from Mustard Seed Dream! Tara does amazing work and her prices are awesome! 


I also did a little more reorganizing in Hailey's closet - putting clothes away and organizing my stockpile - putting recent purchases away. I did one load of laundry and helped clean up Hailey's toys. 


I know what some are you thinking...you cleaned on Mother's Day?! Yes, I did. I felt the need to clean and organize. I feel so much better! 


I need to do some more organizing - our bedroom, hailey's dresser drawers and one more cabinet. I want to get rid of a few more items. Also, I am trying to sell our kitchen tables so we can buy new ones. Pray it is soon. 


What did you do today?!

  2. Hope you had a great Mother's Day!
    I have to share with you my latest find. I bought soda bread mix from Big Lots. It is $3 and makes 3 loaves. Ingredients: wheat flour, leavening, buttermilk, salt. For 1 loaf you need 1/3 of the mix, 1 1/4 milk and 3/4 TBSP oil. It took me 5 min to mix everything and 25 minutes to bake it. I only made 1 loaf to see how it comes out. It is delicious. So fluffy, with a crunchy crust and smells amazing. I am in love with this bread. No need for bread machine, don't have to knead or let it rise. I couldn't believe that the tiny piece of dough I put in the tin turned out into a nice loaf :) I'm going back to Big Lots to buy all the mixes left :)))

    1. Thank you so much! I sure did.

      I will have to look for that bread too - what is it called? I love to have homemade bread but don't have the energy to make it. :D

    2. Irish soda bread mix. I noticed that all Big Lots have a display closed to the registers where they have a lot of European foods: Italian cookies, pasta and such. That's where they had the bread mix.

    3. Im back with an update :) I dont think it's an everyday bread :) Unless you are Irish. I like better the bread I bake, that doesnt really have any flavor. The Irish one tastes a lot like biscuits, probably because of the buttermilk. It is a little sweet too, so I think it's more of a every now and then bread. I tried it today with butter and some orange blossom honey and I have to say that was sooooo good :) I think this bread is going to replace biscuits from now on :)
