Happy Friday! I've been waiting for this day all week... like I normally do, but for a different reason this week... I want it to be Sunday! Normally I dread Sunday because it means that it's almost the start of another work week, but this Sunday we have something exciting planned. If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know what I'm talking about. If not, you'll just have to wait until next week to find out!
Anyway, this week went by entirely too fast. Normally this is a good thing, but I felt so behind all week due to being thrown off my regular schedule and I literally just replied to emails from Sunday, yesterday.
Enough small talk... let's get to it!
Wine in a Can.
I saw Natasha from Schue Love share this Underwood wine a couple weeks ago and I was intrigued. I mean, I have a new love with rose, so I figured, why not. So one day when I was at Trader Joe's, I decided to pick up a can. It was a little more pricey than what I've been buying, but again, I thought, why not? It was $4.99 for a can (one can = 1/2 bottle) which is roughly $10 a bottle. Not very much, but hey, I'm cheap lol. The rose I love at TJ's is only $4.99 a BOTTLE so this was double the amount! I broke into it last night because someone decided to dump out all the Lego's we own. Twice. That called for wine. Also, after his birthday last weekend, we now have WAY more toys than I know what to do with so I plan to (1) go to IKEA this weekend to find a better storage system and (2) go through the toys we have and get rid of some. The shopping sounds way more fun than the cleaning.
Rainbow Chip Frosting.
Has anyone ever had this frosting? Rainbow chip frosting is my ABSOLUTE favorite frosting. Ever. I used to only buy this kind and then they discontinued it and turned it into funfetti. Say what? Vanilla frosting with sprinkles on top is not nearly as good those amazing rainbow chips. Thankfully it's back and I was able to make Mason some funfetti cupcakes with rainbow chip frosting for his birthday!
I got a new Hanna Andersson catalogue in the mail last week and to my surprise, it had a $20 off coupon! I swear I've NEVER seen that from HA before so of course, I had to take advantage! It was only good for in store purchases which is perfect because I was going shopping with my sister in law and friend at the Nordstrom sale on Thursday and there is a HA at that mall. Perfect timing! I had wanted to get Mason some more shorts pajamas since he's still rocking some from last year and they are entirely too short, but I couldn't find any in his size, so I got some for the Fall/Winter instead... if it ever gets cold. But I mean, I couldn't let the $20 coupon go to waste AND look at how cute these Star Wars pajamas are!
Speaking of the Nordstrom sale, I am SO over all the Nordstrom posts lately and here I am doing my own. BUT in my defense, I am really just sharing one thing I got because I LOVE it. This cowl neck dress. I'm a sucker for cowl necks and to be able to wear a real bra with this dress is pure perfection. And not to mention, IT HAS POCKETS. I got it in black but am thinking about getting another one in the black/taupe stripe. Nordstrom, here's my money.
Cute Pool Floats.
Ever since I saw those cute pool floats at Target, I wanted one. Unfortunately our community pool is colder than cold and we never go so I thought it was unnecessary for me to get a pool float. So I passed. And then my niece got these CUTE ones : a watermelon and a donut. And I immediately had FOMO. They no longer have them at Target anymore, but I'm eyeing them on Amazon just hoping they go on sale! I want to snag myself one so bad!
Back to School Supply Shopping.
I went to Target yesterday with every intention of sticking to my list. Well, that didn't happen. And then I walked past this section : the back to school section. I have to admit, I LOVE the back to school section! It was always my favorite part of going back to school as a kid because I LOVED getting new binders and notebooks and pens and pencils. And I have to admit, not much has changed since then. I still love planners and notebooks and pens!
Happy Weekend, friends!
