10 More Things to Buy at IKEA for under $50

10 More Things to Buy at IKEA for under $50

So, this funny conversation happened at my house the other day.  We were sitting on the back deck, eating fajitas, and I had just written my first post about things to buy at IKEA.

Giving Birth 3 Ways: My Home Birth Story

I remember the first time I was pregnant.  I was 24, and while the idea of having an infant wasn’t worrying to me, the idea of labor and delivery was fairly terrifying.  The unknown was definitely looming large! When I finally went into labor, I remember being out in my neighborhood, walking the blocks because I didn’t know what else to do. Anyone relate?  If you’re expecting your first baby, I’m willing to bet you know exactly what I am…
