Some random happenings from our week…
O N E – Happy Mail
I ordered the cutest romper for Olivia from Nel & Witt last week, and it arrived Wednesday. It is so stinking cute and I can’t wait for her to wear it! Now we just need the warm weather to come back. And I just love shopping with small businesses. The amount of care that goes into each package that they send is just so extra special. Olivia’s romper arrived this week all wrapped in tissue paper and tied with twine, and they had sent a thank you note along with it that I later found out was designed using one of the owner’s artwork. It’s little finishing touches like those that make me find myself shopping small more and more.
T W O – Funny Assignment
Y’all may have seen this on Instagram last week. I meant to put it in my post last week, but it slipped my mind. It’s so funny I couldn’t let it go by without being documented, though. Jacob had an assignment to write a recipe and this is what he brought home:
I was dying, y’all. The way he spelled those ingredients is perhaps the funniest thing I had seen all week. I cracked up. Life with kids is never boring, that’s for sure!
T H R E E – Our Little Shopper
Last Friday evening, B and Olivia stopped by Cracker Barrel to pick up dinner to bring home, and they had to wait a few minutes until it was ready. For those of you who know and love Cracker Barrel, you know that they have a little store at the front of every restaurant and they have the best stuff. Well, Brian said that Olivia found the little girl’s clothing section, and she was flipping through the racks to find stuff that she liked. When something would catch her eye, she would pull the hanger off the rack, hold it up and eyeball it, and then put it back on the rack. He said that she looked like a pro! He also said that one of the ladies who worked there said, “Looks like you have a little shopper on your hands!”
And I’ll have y’all know that I don’t ever bring her with me when I shop because I always do my shopping alone on lunch breaks. That means that she didn’t get any of this from me! Maybe she’s just a natural… a future buyer for a big department store? A fashion designer? Only time will tell…
He sent this picture of her while they were there and she just looks so sweet!
F O U R – More Concert Tickets
Remember how last week I was all excited because Ed Sheeran announced tour dates in the US? Well, the presale for fans was Monday and we were able to get tickets for the Atlanta show and… the Nashville show! And the tickets for the Nashville show are in the FOURTH FREAKING ROW. I’m so excited I can’t even stand it. As of now, I would guess we’ll probably sell the ATL tickets and keep the ones for Nash. I have been dying to go, so this would be the perfect excuse. And it just so happens that it falls on a weekend in October when UGA is playing Vandy… which is also in Nashville! Well looky how that worked out! I think I feel an Ed Sheeran/GA Game/Nashville trip coming in the fall! #GimmeAllTheWallMurals
F I V E – Allergy Testing
If you’ve already seen my Instagram post, then you can probably just skip this since you already know. My allergy test results are in and according to my allergist I'm "like a fine wine..." I "just keep getting better with age." Haha.
At my last allergy test 11 years ago I was severely allergic to the majority of the things they tested me for. At this week’s test I was still mildly allergic to most of the things but only severely allergic to three – bahia grass??, maple trees, and sycamore trees.
Since I've improved so much these last 11 years, the doc wants me to try to manage my symptoms with three daily prescriptions instead of allergy shots. Not exactly what I was hoping for, but I am glad that I’m becoming less allergic to things as I get older, I suppose. I go back in six weeks to check my status and he said that if things haven’t improved we’ll start the shots.
I’m not sure which I would prefer to happen at this point. I, of course, want to get better, but I also don’t want to have to worry about these seasonal flare ups. Aaaand I also don’t like the fact that I’m now on three new prescription drugs. Eeeeks. It seems that it might be better to just start getting the shots. That way in a couple of years I should be shot and prescription free… I would hate to have to be on prescription drugs for the rest of time…
Finally, in case you missed it, I posted about our Leprechaun Trap earlier this week in case you're needing a last minute St. Patty's Day project for the kiddos.
And I also put together a roundup of all of my favorite off the shoulder tops… they are trending for spring and I’m all over it!
I'm so ready to put these guys away...
Well, we’re off to work and then to get the weekend started… our city is doing some fun stuff downtown for St. Patty’s Day this evening, so I’m hoping that we can check it out! Happy weekend!
