excited to sew and shop

So I just got this book because the Amazon preview just looked so good.

I'm excited to get our nursery all ready for the little one and looking at sites like rate my space just gets me that much more excited.
I mean just look at this from user grettacole! The bright fun colours, I am in love and I'm looking forward to a trip to Ikea :)

Iced cappuccinos, particularly those from Tim Hortons but any frosty creamy coffee flavoured drink is one of my favourite summer indulgences.

On a good day caffeine makes me wired so I avoid it, now being pregnant I have an even better reason to avoid caffeine. So I have been making my own iced capps at home. The tastiest recipe I've found is this:
homemade iced cappuccino
1 cup skim milk
1 tsp instant coffee powder (or you could use a bit of brewed coffee if you had some leftover)
4 tsp sugar
4-6 ice cubes

Blend until slushy and frothy and enjoy.
This also has much less fat than the store bought variety so I can enjoy it with less guilt :)

But I have been experimenting and to make it even better I save any leftover decaf flavoured coffee that I make every so often in the morning and freeze it in ice cube trays. I cut the instant coffee powder down and use frozen flavoured coffee cubes, mmmm. I hear the blender calling my name now :)

Not to mention this way is much cheaper, so that's what works for me.
