Watermelon Baby Carriage Fruit Salad


While this isn't a recipe, I felt it deserved it's own blog post. My sister and friend Vickie threw a beautiful shower, complete with delicious food, gorgeous decorations, and so many adorable gifts. When we discussed the menu, I told my sister what I'm currently able to eat, which is still carbs and fruit. She sure delivered with a huge bagel assortment as well as muffins, stratas and fruit salad. I came across a photo of a baby carriage bowl, and mentioned it to my sister. She was a little weary, but we thought my mom would love to make it. We were right. Anything with a saw, she's on it! Well, the saw wasn't necessary, but she did construct this gorgeous baby carriage fruit salad bowl. She filled it with watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and grapes. It was divine!

This will sound weird but try sleeping on an incline. I had horrible heart burn with my first daughter and this time around have been sleeping on a back pillow that is a good 1/2 foot high at the back. Took some getting used to but has really helped with the heartburn.

You are the cutest pregnant person! It so suits you, though sorry to hear the eating hasn't been as good. :-( Glad to hear everything is healthy though! Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy.

Get someone to get you the Petite Gourmet Cookbook if you do not already have it. They have a great recipe for Lemon pancakes...it only has a sprinkle of lemon juice on top. It is like a dutch baby and is great with a sprinkle of confectioners sugar and some blackberries. Good luck and god bless with miss violet.
