In addition to the Easter gifts that my husband and I got her, my parents also got her a pink polka dot tent! While it's definitely not gender neutral, I love it and so does SC! It's become a cozy little reading nook for her.
One of my friends is having a baby in a few weeks, so I got the crazy idea to try to cross stitch a little something for her baby boy. It's become way more time consuming than I realized, so I'll probably be talking about this again, but I've been hard at work trying to make progress on this thing! So far I've only finished the border and one of the arrows...
I love sending cards, but they can get pricey quickly. I can easily drop $15 on just a few cards, which is kind of insane. Awhile ago, my sister gently suggested I try checking out the Dollar Store, and it has helped save a bit of money. This week, I was able to pick up some for Mother's Day, so we are slowly getting ready for that holiday! May is a big month in our family, so I'm trying to start early because I always end up feeling a bit overwhelmed.
While I've still made a few trips to my beloved Target, I have really enjoyed shopping at Aldi lately. One thing that is a bummer is that they really rotate different specialty items quickly, so you have to jump on it. I tried this flatbread a week ago, and was sad to see on Thursday that it was just a one-time deal. At least it is fun to try different foods that way, but next time I'm stocking up if I see anything I think might be good!
For some reason, I feel like our house is starting to feel a little more homey. My sister bought me some prints that I finally hung in SC's bathroom. My husband stocked up on frames when he stopped by IKEA last week, so we're hoping to get a few more things hung up this weekend. It's funny how just having something on the walls makes such a difference!
