The nursery, a local store, and a recipe...

Isn't that a good title? I don't have the time for multiple posts so here's what's going on in my world:

Robert and I are still on the hunt for a house. We want something we can renovate, and it's hard to find something in our price range we can put a lot of $$ into. I do realize that there will be a baby in our world in just a few (eeek!) months, so I have instead become focused on the baby's room. Which is much more fun!! I have a few things already I want to use.

White jenny lind baby bed (I got this at an auction for $75!)

My Dad's baby chest (needs a fresh coat of paint and knobs)
Birdcage wall hanging for pics and baby shower invite, etc.

Lamp - a gift from Robert
These last 2 items came from a local store here in Albany - Livi and Company. I have bought several things there over the years and their prices are very reasonable! It's a mix of old and new. Here are a few other things from Livi I have in my home...

As I mentioned before, Robert has been running, and he finished his second race a few weeks ago, the Gate in Jacksonville. I decided to stay home and rest (which if you know me is really big--I do not usually like to be alone, but I have to was nice!). I made a special congratulatory dinner for him that Sunday night and it was awesome!! I have never made anything by the Neely's (the show on the Food Network is a little on the annoying side...spice fairy anyone?) but this recipe looked right up Robert's alley. Here is the recipe for Short Ribs. Yum!

I followed the recipe from the website exactly, but I didn't have any red wine, so I substituted beef broth.

That's it for now...happy Spring!

PROPS my husband! He has been training for months and last Saturday in St. Simons Island, he ran his first 10K!! He placed 3rd in his age group and will be receiving a MEDAL. He wants to put it on our mantel, but I think it would look better in our upstairs guest room bookcase ;)

Congrats Robert!! So proud of you...
