The kids have now been on summer break for two whole weeks and keeping me busy but I love it! It’s amazing having kids in such different age ranges, you literally get to have a little fun doing a little bit of everything. Just today I took my oldest to buy his girlfriend flowers, then I took Robert to Target to buy Pokemon cards and while I was there bought Joseph some teething rings. It’s crazy but in the best possible way.
I’ve been looking for a flokati rug for a long time. It’s not that I couldn’t find one; I just couldn’t justify spending more than $20 or $30 for it. While at Walmart I found a decent sized rug for only $19.99!
One of my favorite saying’s is, “it is what it is,” so when I saw this mug at T.J. Maxx for only $2.99 I had to have it!
Finding a pack of 5 sleeveless onesies for only $7.99 at Marshalls – score! Not for me but a bargain always makes happy! Sleeveless are almost impossible to find at stores. Look at those chunky arms!
I love pesto but I’m tired of just tossing it with pasta. This time I added cheese ravioli (it was supposed to be tortellini but they were out), asparagus and sauteed spinach – yummy!
Last week I bought this green dress from Target – it was on clearance for only $16 and I loved it so much I went back and got it in deep rose and then ordered it in black. You can find the dresses
I actually love love love these curtains but I do eventually want a change. So I decided to look through some boxes I labeled decorative (aka stuff thrown around the garage) and I came across a bunch of antique plates that I always planned on hanging and use as decoration.
They didn’t offer much help for my room or living room because they didn’t match but I think they’ll be perfect in the kitchen. Most of them where handed down from my mother in laws antique collection but I also picked up a few of my own when I lived up in Jersey and went antiquing all the time. My original plan was to hang them inside an empty frame but I wanted to see what pintrest had to offer and I found some amazing ideas! I might still stick to hanging within black frame to modernize them a bit and it’ll give me the option of easily swapping them out. Tip: Look at stores like Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx or even Goodwill for affordable stylish plates.
