Baking Therapy - Lemon Yoghurt Cake

So at 39.5 weeks pregnant, what better way to pass the time than to bake a delicious lemon yoghurt cake!!

This is a super easy cake to make and tastes delicious.  I've tried a few different recipes, and this one is the best!

While I seem to be getting rounder by the day, keeping busy has been a good distraction from the aches, pains and tiredness of the downward slope of the last trimester.

....and the plus side of being pregnant, is that I can sample the goods guilt free!!

Nursery Makeover

The most exciting part of moving into our new home has been setting up the nursery!!  With only a few days until our little one arrives, we've just added the finishing touches to his new room.  After many months of obsessive nesting, everything is finally ready to go...although my poor VISA card is a little worse for wear!!  

Now we just need the baby!! 

When we moved in, the paint was a drab half duck egg blue, half slightly pink combination.  After some narrowly avoided paint colour arguments in Bunnings, we decided on Dulux Shimmer Quarter.  This is now my favourite room in the house!!

We wall mounted some of our favourite Ikea Kallax shelves to store all his new toys and books.  

My favourite purchase would have to be these gorgeous baby animals prints by the animal print shop.  
I wanted to find some grey chevron curtains but couldn't find them anywhere in Sydney, so I ordered them to be custom made from Etsy, and they turned out beautifully!!
