Running Errands

I like to walk to one of our local markets to stock up on fruits and vegetables every week or so.  I usually opt to have our groceries delivered to us from Countdown – we don’t have a vehicle, so this is the best option for us.  However, I soon learned that the fruits and… Read More Running Errands

Erupt Prints – More Nursery Designs!

Since we’re renting, our decorating options are a bit more limited than if we owned a home.  The room that will eventually become the nursery has 3 light colored walls with 1 dark charcoal gray wall.  It’s very “blah”.  Since we can’t paint {and who the heck would want to with our 20 foot ceilings},… Read More Erupt Prints – More Nursery Designs!
