1. Kendra Scott on sale!
Tuesday was A DAY...like, one of THOSE days. It was a crazy busy day at work - I missed a pump time, left work an hour late, there was terrible traffic on the tollway and I nearly ran out of gas, I was an hour and a half late picking up C from daycare (within 4 minutes of getting charged), and Blair's conference call ran like 2 hours over, meaning that I couldn't make it to the Moms ministry speaker and dinner at church. Soooo naturally I did what all responsible adults do....retail therapy online, in the form of new (and on sale!) Kendra Scott earrings. I have 3 pairs of the Elle earrings (Cobalt, Maroon Jade, and Yellow) and have had my eye on the Alex style...so, since they were on sale, and I had some money leftover on a Nordstrom gift card, obviously I needed them. I got the slate catseye and the magenta magnesite...I'm not sure whether I'll keep both or only one, but since Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns, I figured I needed to snag them both before the sale ends!
2. My New Wreath!
I love the look of burlap wreaths and have been wanting one for a while, so I finally took advantage of all my time on "house arrest" (due to a baby with a 7:30 PM bedtime and a husband working busy season hours) to make one. I picked up the supplies at Hobby Lobby and made the whole things in less than an hour - so easy! I used the instructions from this blog to do the burlap (it took 3 15-foot rolls), and then just modge-podged some scrapbook paper onto a wooden P (because who doesn't love a monogram?) I plan to change out the Easter egg picks for various season/holiday-appropriate accents throughout the year!
3. Google+ App
The vast quantity of photos and videos of C on my iPhone far exceed the 5 GB of free iCloud backup space, so I keep getting annoying pop-up windows suggesting that I buy more storage from Apple. While researching options, I found that I can just download the Google+ app and it will auto-backup all of my photos and videos for free...which is even better because I can access Google from anywhere (I don't have iTunes installed on my work computer). Score!
4. Finally, springtime weather in Dallas?!
Can it possibly be true?! Is it FINALLY going to be spring weather in Dallas? I'm pumped about the forecast for this weekend and can't wait to break out the short-sleeved shirts and maybe some sandals!! Perfect weather for a walk on the Katy Trail with C!
5. Women's Small Group Saturday
Tomorrow is our monthly small group with the girls from our Sunday school class at church -- one of my favorite times of the month! We started this small group last fall after collectively deciding that we wanted to have a Bible study/small group, but that the constraints of working, being moms of littles, and having busy lives meant that it would have to be low key and flexible - so, we have it at 8:00 AM one Saturday morning a month, because that is the frequency that we can commit to at this stage in our lives, and 8:00 AM is the only time we aren't otherwise booked up. The theme of our small group is "come as you are", which means that coming in PJs, no makeup, with or without babies in tow (depending on if husbands are home to watch the kiddos) is the norm. No homework, no fuss (even for the hostess - the only expectation is coffee). Love it!!!
