Recap:
After 6 1/2 years of Marriage, Now my Husband and I are expecting our First baby! :)
We are so happy, But this was not planned so I have not done anything around my home to be ready for a baby.

I'm 8 weeks and that only gives me maybe 7 months to get everything done and that's if I feel good to do it all because I'm so sick and sleepy all the time.(but hey sick is a good thing in this case)

Once I found out I was Pregnant I went online and looked for book, websites, blogs whatever I could find to get List and Tasks that I need to get done around the home before the baby comes. but once I started looking  there was No one place for everything, one book would be about getting baby's room ready and that's it, or a website would have getting your home clean before baby but didn't have any thing for getting your home safe or having the room ready.

 So after looking at many different things and looking around my home at the things i want to get done before the baby I have made my list of what I need to Get Done. That's where This Challenge Comes In!

In this Challenge I will be getting things ready for the Baby's arrival, Its Not Just for Pregnant Ones. Any One Can Do It! Because we are not just going to be having baby oriented tasks there will be things for cleaning and organizing your home as well. So Join us In this challenge!

This Challenge Is going to be a little Different Than Other Challenges in how its going to be Laid out I explain this all in "New Challenge Part 2".

All Post will be Located Under the Tab "My Pregnancy Journey" Located at the Top Right side of the Blog.

{DIY} Homemade Butter!

I love making homemade butter.
Lot's of times I will find a really good deal on heavy cream, when I do I like to use that to make homemade butter and butter milk.

it's a great thing to get the kids involved in, so if you have a little helpers have them help you!

today I thought I would show you how to make your own homemade butter and butter milk.

so let's get started!

What you will need:


  • 1 Quart Heavy Cream
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • Mixer
  • large Bath Towel
Instructions:
1.) using your whisk attachment put your heavy cream into the bowl of your mixer, add the salt cover the mixer with the bath towel you will need this due to a lot of splashing trust me you don't want to skip this part.

2.) put your mixer on high and whip until it becomes whip cream turn off mixer and change your whisk to your paddle attachment cover again with towel, mix on high, the mixture will become liquid again with some small butter chunks.

(at this point the splashing will get bad so keep that towel on)

3.)keep mixing on high until a large clump of butter is made, there will also be a lot of liquid in the bowl that is butter milk. once the large clump is formed the butter is done.

4.) stranger buttermilk out of the butter and set aside for baking or place in a jar and store in the fridge. (I like to use a mason jar)

5.) take your clump of butter and using your hands pressed out the excess of buttermilk under cold running water until the water runs clear. 

6.) shape the butter into sticks or balls.

Notes:

  •  the butter will last up to four weeks in the refrigerator you can freeze it also.
  • this butter is the best on bread and for baking
  • use the buttermilk to make buttermilk pancakes.
