FINDS!

A few weeks ago I was trying with all my might to not overload on buying baby clothes. We weren't sure it was twin girls - but the possibility? So hard to not buy cute matching everything. But I withheld (for the most part), but my not buying adorable sets of things did translate into buying pillows. I bought 6 pillows and made one in a week span. Oh my. 

In my defense, four were on 75% off clearance at Target and the other two were each a dollar at Goodwill. And during this time I only bought four items of baby clothes that were 90% off Easter clearance - so I'm calling it a win. 

Oh, but that not buying baby stuff....

That didn't last. It's yard sale season. When sellers find out I'm having twin girls, their eyes light up thinking I'll buy ALL their girl stuff or they try to "help" me by piling on all their girl stuff - but I know what I'm doing! I also bought Wade a few toys (what? not just tupperware?) - he immediately cared more about putting them in a box than stacking them. 

Wade also had some finds this week:

He found playing cards - three decks are now officially his. It's a pretty good tactic - I find, I ruin, they're mine. We also are continuously finding cards everywhere now too. He found a dandelion. He found a friend at the park - and he found sand! He found all my picture CD's. He continues to find potatoes, granola bars, onions and fruit snacks in my pantry. Just like the cards, I'm finding random food everywhere too. I can never trust that I'm out of anything until I've checked the crock pot, KitchenAid bowl and lid drawer. 

And Husband got an anemone! 

He's been wanting one and guy at work had a few, so he GAVE him one. How cool is that? Oh, you have no idea cause you're not a fish person (cause no one is!)? It's pretty cool. As much as I tolerate Husband's tank (it being in my dining room, the time it takes, the money it takes, and the supplies everywhere), it's looking pretty awesome.

Well, it's Friday and Wade just woke up from his nap - guess that means it's time to go troll for yard sales!!

Master Bedroom

Everything in our house is in transition. Exciting transition. The loft/play room has been painted, rearranged had new artwork created. The spare room/nursery has been painted and is coming along. Even the stairwell and upstairs hallway is shaping up. Things are looking so good! Except as EVERYTHING is in transition, everything is also buried in boxes and junk that needs to find it's home (perhaps the trash can?).

So here's a little share of our master bedroom. It's much the same as when I posted it here, but it's also had some additions that make it feel like we actually live here - we're not just moving in.

I need to put rocks in the bottom of the flowers - totally forgot until I saw this pic! Ha - amazing how quickly you get used to things being half finished.

Oh, that chair? It's Room and Board that I found for FREE on Craigslist.

husbands wall

I put together this wall for Husband's birthday. Still needs frames. But frames have been placed in the back seat for the next few months.

And now there's nothing on the bed side tables. There isn't much in them either. Wade is really good at making sure things stay empty. Ha!
