My Birthday Wishlist

It’s my birthday today! 🙂  Every year, I write out a little wish list, and usually I do it a few weeks before my birthday, but this year things got away from me.  I kept saying, I’ll think of things next week, next week, next week… until my birthday actually came! Here are some of the things I’m wishing for today:

01 // Rose Gold Teething Necklace from Finity Handmade

I’ve been following Finity Handmade on Instagram for the longest time, and I’ve loved this particular necklace for a while.  It’s so pretty and shiny and pretty :hearteyes: And I’m getting it.  I ordered my own birthday present last night haha You can get it here!

02 // lace doily coasters from Little Stitches by Brandi Little

03 // Garden Party Tula Toddler Carrier

I’ve been loving on the Tula carriers for a while, and it would be nice to be able to wear my daughter at the same time as my son and this would be perfect.  Plus, look how pretty!! You can find it here

04 // STARBUCKS
I love Starbucks, and I always want Starbucks gift cards any time of year 😉

Five on Friday: Bye August

What a week, y’all! But then, I feel like I say that every time. Having 2 under 2 sure makes life busy 😉

01 // Having a vehicle
This week, I was able to use the car all week, and it’s been SO GREAT.  Andrew usually takes the car to work, so I am at home without a vehicle.  It’s not a big deal, and we are able to use the car when we need it for doctor’s appointments and things like that.. but overall, we stay home or go places we can walk to.  I plan to start taking the bus places, but anyway! This week we had the car, so I wanted to use it as much as possible.  On Monday, I went grocery shopping during the day. Awesome.  On Tuesday, we went to the library.  It was really fun, and I liked being able to let Autumn walk around there.  She likes being there, too.  On Wednesday, I went to pick something up from a buy/sell group person, and we went to Michaels.  On Thursday, it was raining, so initially I thought we’d stay home.. but we went to a thrift store that’s supposed to be good for records (and it was). And today, we’re going to visit my Amma and we’re having lunch with her! It’s been a great week.


02 // I bought a LOOM
One of the things I found at the thrift store yesterday was a wooden loom.  I need to figure out how to use it, but I’m excited to see what I can make with it

03 // Autumn’s getting a big girl bed
We bought a twin bed for Autumn last week, and she’s going to be switching to her big girl bed TONIGHT! Wish us luck.  I’m so excited for her though! My mom saved my old Beauty and the Beast sheets from when I was a kid, and we picked up a railing.  It’s going to be the cutest little bed.  <3


04 // Christmas
I know it seems a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but I don’t really care? haha I love Christmas!! My goal for this year is to be finished Christmas shopping by Halloween.  Aside from one or two gifts for like a gift exchange or something, which I won’t know who I have to buy for until November/December.  All the people I know I need to buy for, I want to have their present ready to go.  Last year, I did a thing where I purchased from local shops, or handmade gifts, and I want to do the same thing again this year!  I am starting earlier with the homemade stuff, because that does take time.  I’m excited with what I have so far 🙂 (And, for fun, there’s a picture of Aiden wearing one of his sister’s Christmas sleepers haha bc when your first baby is born in November, their Christmas sleepers might fit your second baby in August 😉 )


05 // Little Stitches by Brandi Little
I was chosen to be a brand ambassador for this amazing little etsy shop, and I made my first order this week!  I’m so excited to receive it!  You can visit her shop here! Isn’t everything just adorable?

Hope you have an excellent weekend!

xoxo,
