more birthday, some basics, and a book

28 April 2017


1. Typing this with one hand so excuse (or enjoy?) my brevity for once. It's a long story that I'll type out when I'm back to two handed typing.

2. I know I already threw an identical snap up on Instagram but when I'm old and grey and flipping through my blog (unlikely but let a mother dream) I know I'll get a kick out of Sebastian's clasped hands. The best thing about birthdays around here might be that all the other kids act like it's their birthday too (Julia always, "needs to have a private discussion" with the birthday honoree after their presents have been opened so she can begin the bartering process .... ).

3. I've been listening to this song on repeat. Or shall I say en la repeticiĆ³n? I SHALL. I've even converted Simon - a feat.

4. L-O-V-E-D this article - I laughed out loud and sent it to Simon (sitting next to me at the time) to read it too and he agreed it was a gem. Thanks to Mary for sharing. I've always though Tracy and I would get along (we are on a first name basis, after ALL).

5. Recently discovered super cute kid basics (from a Facebook ad of all places - target audience bullseye) - first time orders get 20% off and free shipping. I've been having a hard time finding an affordable and simple swimsuit for Sebastian so I was really happy to discover that they just started making swimwear TOO.

6. Never NEWS news but everything is 40% off at LOFT at the moment and they have tons of cute new summer stuff.

7. Okay I don't know what possessed me to start reading The Young Wives Club this week but I have and it's not great but I have to know how it ends. I don't really recommend it but I had to fess up that I'm reading it. And I'm about to go finish it right now.

Hope your Friday night is a little more lively!


  1. Is it terrible that I had ordered a bunch of stuff from loft at 40%off, then the next day it was 50% off so I reordered it and returned the first bunch.

  2. Not a Catholic. Not even religious. But loved the wedding story and it could apply to anyone.
    Funny and insightful

  3. i'm one handed typing over here too!! sliced my thumb, 5 stitches and tendon damage. hope your story is better!!

  4. I'm laughing out loud at that article! This was the perfect stress-reliever before my own very Catholic wedding in three weeks. Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. Love Primary! Their zip up pj's are so soft and great for little babies. Love everything I've ordered from them so far and they've become my go-to for baby gifts.

  6. Use your phone!!! Dictate your blog post instead of typing. You can email it to yourself and then copy and paste on your computer if you don't like blogging from you phone

  7. Ooh... thanks for sharing Primary! I have never heard of them before, but their website looks great and it IS always hard to find simple kids basics.

  8. That article!!! Love it. Also, just ordered my boys swimsuits there too! Hope your hand is okay!
