Wednesday mornings in Arroyo Grande, the local farmers hold their Farmer's Market in the parking lot of Spencer's Market from 8:30 to 11:00 am. The fruits and vegetables for sale are fresh, seasonal and mostly organic. Since it's "winter" here, cabanas featured brussel spouts on the stalk, carrots, leeks, butternut squash, oranges, all kinds of cabbage and lettuce, organic apples and even Artisan cheese and bread. At most cabanas, you get the opportunity to chat with the farmers or their representatives and taste before you buy. The price is right and you know you are getting food that was probably picked within the last couple of days. We are very lucky to live in a region of California where produce is grown and nearly every day of the week you can find a Farmer's Market somewhere in the county.

Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures. The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it.

Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart. The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla . These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake. Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, burp pads and
