Of dreams and smiles- Part II


I have been sleeping well lately *knocks on wood* that I have started to get dreams!! I started losing sleep when I was in my third trimester of pregnancy due to pupps. Dang those rashes were so itchy and painful that I had to wake my husband or my mom up and cry to them to slather hydrocortisone or sandalwood paste all over my bump, legs and hands. I couldn’t sleep well for more than 2 hours at a stretch. As if this wasn’t enough I had to get up for peeing. Pupps went away after I delivered but I had to feed baby every 2 hours and she used to drink for an hour or so and then sometimes she wanted me to comfort feed her to make her sleep after that one hour of feeding. So basically no sleep so no dreams.

Floral Nursery Tour

This time last year I was obsessively creating mood boards on Pinterest for baby’s nursery room. Eventually the room came together and I’m very happy how my Pinterest dream came true. We painted the room, we assembled the crib, I stuck pompoms to curtains because pompoms are SO cute, we arranged the closet (she has her own closet with tiny hangers!).  What was not on my ‘floral’ themed mood board was ‘jungle’ themed wall decal, it was baby’s dad’s idea and I was ok with it as it had some pastel colors. Here’s the tour of Sammy’s nursery room, I shot it long back and even uploaded on youtube but it took me more than a month to write a wee blogpost about it.

Quiet Book

Ever since I got pregnant, I wanted to do something for the baby. Like some people knit scarf/mittens, some people sew dresses. But I can’t do either of them so I settled for making headbands and something that is related to book. I wanted to create a story book but I can’t sketch to save the life of me. Great, now I feel like I’m not good at anything!! I came across this idea of quiet book and thought this looks cool so why not! You can find them easily on Amazon or any bookstore but the creative satisfaction that I get when I was making it or when I read this book to Sam is nothing compared to reading the mainstream books. I’m sure she will treasure it in future and I’m hoping it stays in one piece for her to treasure . Here’s how it looks, let me know how you like it!! 🙂

Brownie Batter Overnight Oats


If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I seem overnight oats obsessed. The thing is I’m not obsessed but I’m surely getting there. I get a lot of DMs asking how come I love oats so much. LOL. I don’t love oats but I love the convenience of making it in advance and just grab and eat whenever I want. I love how I can channel my creativity and develop my own recipes. Here’s one such recipe that I love and this is how I make it.

Ajwain Crackers

Postpartum cravings are real! I din’t crave much for anything except apple and watermelon during my pregnancy but I’m craving a lot these days. My dad used to but us these crackers and cream biscuits from a local bakery and these were our after school snacks. I din’t know what these crackers were called so I had to guess the ingredients and google the recipe and both google and my tastebuds din’t fail me. I found a recipe which seemed close and I tweaked it a bit.

How we named our baby.

Previously on ‘Treasured Chronicles’, you’d have read about ‘how we found out that we are pregnant‘. and that ‘we had our baby girl and how obsessed I’m about dressing her up‘.
So, when did we start brainstorming the baby names you ask?  As soon as we knew that we are having a baby gir… no wait.. Actually it started way before we even got pregnant like I think when I was in school. LOL. Jokes apart, sometime in 2016, I came across this name and kinda liked it. Who would have thunk that we would get pregnant and have a baby girl the next year? But it happened. My dream came true!! 🙂 Straight outta soap opera, right? 
So, our baby girl’s name is
