This feels strange...I'm blogging! I don't know what's gotten into me, but I woke up yesterday with an itch to write a Five on Friday post. So here goes nothing...
If it's not raining, you can find my crew at the neighborhood park most afternoons. I'm not gonna lie, it's not the most exciting park. However, it has slides and swings and fresh air...and it's practically in our backyard. So we go, and we love it.
Speaking of swings...look who joined the bucket swing club!
(And looked pretty darn cute doing it!)
Operation Design Arden's Big Girl Room is in full swing! Our little lady has had the toddler railing on her crib for a couple of months now and has done great, but I finally found some motivation to start thinking about the next steps. We had originally planned to purchase the side rail conversion kit for her crib...until we found out it was $300...and that my childhood bedroom set was sitting in my parent's basement just begging for a fresh coat of white paint. For free, I might add :) I'm still not sure if we'll keep her crib or sell it, but for now we're moving forward with a pretty little 1990's sleigh bed. Who knows, maybe it'll become a family heirloom :)
So far I've only ordered the duvet and the fabric for the buffalo check curtains. The rest I hope to piece together over the next couple of months. I'm envisioning something like this...
On the docket this weekend...paint colors!
This song. My friend Chelsea shared it with me when I needed it the most and I've been listening non-stop.
Moms, read this. The first time I did it completely turned my day around...and now I have it bookmarked on my phone for those moments in motherhood when I need this gentle reminder. Thanks to my mom for sharing it with me :)
"All God asks of us is to do whatever task He gives with a thankful, rejoicing heart."
Amen. Amen. Amen.
And finally, a little weekend sendoff from our streaker...in light-up princess shoes.
As my sister put it, hopefully she grows out of this!! ;)
Happy Friday, friends.
