No, I didn't fall off the face of the Earth

 I'm alive and the baby's kicking (not that I can feel but we saw on the ultrasound today.) It's a wiggly little thing. Our doctor was surprised at how stretched out it is. I guess most babies are curled into a ball at this point (12 weeks).
 I'm way behind on updating my blog. So here's a quick peek at what I've been up to besides growing a baby and sleeping.

Nothing fancy but the girls don't care.

 A little bit of sewing for the Miss Mina.

 And a bit for my little cousin. She just turned 5.
And a few projects around the house I haven't gotten around to photographing. Like a new toothbrush/towel rack for my bathroom, chandelier and the start of the nursery/craft room. I promise another update by Friday.

I just cleaned my shower with an orange and some kosher salt

That's right. With food. And it worked great. Even better, it smelled great! So I'm addicted to Pinterest (and spend too much time on their site) and found this idea. Now my shower will never be dirty again. (By the way I'm about 10 weeks preggo and have the super smell ability, which means the smell of comet, scrubbing bubbles and yes, bleach make me wanna vomit.) So it had been a while since I'd scrubbed the shower. Like almost 2 months.
After a test spot.
Don't judge me too harshly for the disgusting before.
No chemicals means I get a little helper.
And I have a feeling it will look even better when I clean it again next week.

 Super simple directions.
Cut orange (or lemon or grapefruit) in half
Sprinkle liberal amount of salt in tub/shower
Rub fruit in small circles, picking up fresh salt every now and again.
I scrapped out the worst of the salty-pulpy gunk but washed the rest down the drain.
