DIY Whimsical Baby Mobile

DIY whimsical baby mobile - made from string tassels

Less than a month from my due date, and I don’t have a nursery even close to being ready for baby girl. In all honesty, I’m not sure if it will even happen until after baby is born. For someone as neurotic as myself, I guess you could say I’m being extremely relaxed about this whole thing… relaxed, or lazy, take your pick…

For someone who spends their days wearing t-shirts and men’s basketball shorts (I’m in my third trimester, so hardly anything fits theses days, plus it’s like a million degrees outside and I’m chasing a toddler around), I secretly love all things fancy and wish it was a normal thing for adults to play dress-up.

The Fresh 20: Because Meal Planning’s Not for Me

Meal Planning
