Five on Friday – February!!

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I have a few things that I’d like to chat with you about.  Some things that I’ve been thinking about, or obsessing over, and what we’ve been doing lately!  To say life is busy is boring and a little bit expected, right? Everyone’s life is busy.  We’ve been busy doing a variety of things, both boring and interesting.  Like these five things:

  1. My Letterboard!

    I am OBSESSED with my letter board.  I got this for Christmas from Andrew, and I’ve been putting some fun messages on it.  Like the above!  I am constantly looking for fun little quotes to add to it (some you may have seen on my instagram, feel free to follow me there!)  I am really enjoying it.  If you want your own, mine is from Letter Peddler!
  2. Spotify
    Near the end of 2017, we purchased a bluetooth speaker.  Before that, we had this really crappy old cd/cassette player.  It would randomly turn the volume all the way up by itself, and wouldn’t play most cds… so we decided to upgrade.  And one of the best things we did since was get a Spotify account.  I’ve been listening to all kinds of playlists on there and I love it!  This week, I’ve discovered that there is a LOT of S Club 7 and 2Ge+her on there.  SO amazing.  This is my current favourite playlist, just in case you were looking for something different to listen to 😉
  3. My shop
    I’ve been doing a lot of work for my shop lately, between May Market and a couple of Auction groups I am part of, I am so excited and in love with the things I’ve been making lately.  In particular this romper:

    I am OBSESSED with the way this looks!! On one side, we have pink lace and on the reverse side, vintage lace ruffle bum.  So cute. <3
    Check out my group: Alysalovely Littles VIP
    And my shop: Alysalovely Littles
  4. Aiden’s first haircut
    I gave Aiden his first haircut the other day.  I cut Autumn’s hair for the first time this past summer, and her bangs were getting pretty long again, so I asked if she needed a trim.  She wanted me to, so I did!  THEN, I asked Aiden if he wanted his hair cut, too.. and he said yes!
    Before:

    During:

    He cooperated really well because he was watching Moana on my phone!
    After:

    My little sweetie!! There are definitely things that I would do differently next time, but it’s hair so I will get a second chance 😉
  5. Activities
    It’s still cold AF out, but we are having the car during the day on a more regular basis, so we’re going to be able to go out more often!  I’m so excited to be able to take the kids for activities… such as to the dentist!  We’re also going to the play area at the local malls, to play groups, and for library programs.  I’m looking forward to seeing what other activities I’ll be able to find for us to do during the day.

What are you excited about lately?

Currently Creating: What I’ve Been Making Lately

It’s been pretty quiet around here lately, and I’ve missed writing here.  I’ve just been on a roll with making bonnets for my etsy shop!  I’ve been doing a lot of summer bonnets, and I just love how they turned out, so I’d like to share with you some pictures of my most recent creations:

I’ve also started making things for Aiden’s first birthday!! I’ll share those after the party 😉
