Favorite Blog Post 2/15/08

My favorite blog post this week was posted at Get Rich Slowly but written by Lynnae at BeingFrugal. Here's the link:
How to Prepare for a Baby (Without Going Broke)
Sure, it's a little premature for me to be thinking about having a baby, but I really enjoy reading and learning about these things before the hormones kick in :) For example, I'd never even considered the idea of using cloth diapers instead of disposables or of using a midwife instead of going to the hospital. Now I have a couple of years to casually read about these topics as I see articles about them!

Carnivals
I was included in the Make It From Scratch carnival this week. I entered my recipe for Easy Lasagna. I definitely want to try out the recipe I saw for Dark Molten Chocolate Cakes - they look so delicious!

I was also included in the Carnival of 20-Something Finance. I entered one of my "Saving Money of Your Wedding" articles: Bridal Accessories.

Lastly, my husband did the sweetest thing for Valentine's Day. There were 3 roses in the bathroom when I got up. Later, I found 3 more by my breakfast bowl, 3 more by my hot chocolate mug, and 3 more by the front door! Each set of flowers was in a plastic water bottle with a handmade wrapper on it where he wrote something sweet.
Pictures are below. I sure do love that guy!

Love the roses; very creative!! If you start thinking seriously about the having kids at home/cloth diapers stuff, I'll have to connect you with my sister; they've had 3 kids that way! :)
