Happy Friday! Bring on the weekend full of errands, cleaning, cooking and another dinner (play date) party. We are having two families over tomorrow for dinner tomorrow, and Cam is more excited than anyone because these families include two of his best friends: Jonah and Avery! I am sort of excited to have a house full of kids (and friends who are parents, which makes everything easier).
Did you know that can join Amazon Mom for free when you have an Amazon Prime membership? I had no idea...this may come in very handy (read: become very dangerous) when Louise arrives!
We are starting to work on Louise's nursery, and I am so excited! You all were so sweet with your comments about my inspiration board...I plan on buying a few pieces at a time, but Cam is "living" in her room right now, so it's tough to bring in a lot of new stuff. I think my next purchase will be some wall decor pieces, as Cam is still using the crib AND changing pad, so there's no sense in buying those now! Plus, it will help me figure out the layout of the furniture a little better...
I will probably DIY an L for her nursery
This article talks about making 30 meals for under $300...I am going to do this. I think that a few hours of prep is totally worth having dinner prepared in the freezer during Louise's first few weeks with us or really any night this summer. And, these meals actually look like meals my family will eat!
Citrus Lane keeps sending fun stuff and totally hitting the mark for Cam! In last month's box, we got a little sample of the Tegu blocks. I had seen them mentioned before, but totally disregarded them because of their price. However, they are totally worth it! They are magnetic and so fun - they keep Cam totally entertained while we are at a restaurant or waiting somewhere. They also send little samples of snacks, usually something to eat with/on and maybe a book or other product. I don't feel like I'm saving any money by getting their box, but they always introduce me to something I would not have tried initially, including this fun little memory game.
Anthropologie opens in Portland today!! My mom and I were going to go to the sneak peak opening last night, but I didn't feel like fighting the crowds. (And, they weren't offering any discounts, so I am happy waiting.) I am sure we will be there a LOT, as it's literally a mile from our house! Trouble, trouble...
Have a great weekend!!
