monday things.

Apr 8, 2013

I really hate it when fun plans fall through (like going to the Highland Games) but then I remember NETFLIX and I'm able to move on. I have a major addiction, y'all. Seriously, it's out of hand. At some point literally every night after work, I plop down on the couch to watch 1-2 episodes of Mad Men or Breaking Bad. All this while my child plays all by herself. (This independent play thing is awesome though.) I'm pretty sure this qualifies me as 2013's Mom Of The Year.

So since Ronnie was stuck studying most of the weekend, that meant I had the TV (geez lady, move on!) and V all to myself. She and I did a lot of playing, a lot of clapping (she's finally learning how to!), a ton of reading, so much talking (kid doesn't shut up. but I love it), lots of eating, some grocery shopping, a few tantrums were had and....

I finally opened up my Instagram shop!!!

What's an Instagram shop, you ask?

Basically I set up a profile where I upload pictures of outfits and price them, people leave their PayPal email address if they want to buy, I invoice them, then I ship their items! Easy peasy. I was hesitant to start one but I finally "opened" it yesterday and have had a really good response so far. I've sent out 4 invoices already! I seriously owe Jenn all the credit. She opened up her shop a while back selling her own clothing and this is when she introduced me to the world of IG shopping! I've bought V so many things since then (that pink romper up there is from one shop!) so I wanted to join in too! If you're a new girl mama or have any preggo friends, send them my way!

and in other news, you may have noticed - I have an updated blog design!

All thanks to Emily of Oh, Hello Love!

I've been reading her blog for a little while and noticed she does blog design (isn't her own design gorgeous?) so I approached her about it and though she's currently taking a break from doing full blog design, she generously offered to create some design elements for me! She created my header, my "About Me" and social media buttons. She also gave me tips for updating the rest of my blog. Emily is truly amazing to work with and I'm so grateful to her for making my blog pretty! Emily's own blog is just so sweet and she talks décor, DIY, photography and gives freebies too. Her last freebie was this wallpaper which is currently on my own desktop. LOVE IT! Do yourself a favor and go visit Emily! ;)

Happy Monday, y'all!

I quit Netflix a while back and then started it up again... and then spent my whole weekend on it. Oops. That site is way too addictive!

Sara McFall said...

Netflix and interdependent playing children are awesome! I'll say enjoy it while it lasts because one days she will notice what you are watching or won't play alone and you'll have to watch children shows.:)

And you give her lots of mommy time so your good. :o)

Sorry your plans fell through. It always sucks when that happens. I'm a planner and I hate when it happens. Also, cute header!

I also suffer from Netflix addiction. :) Recently I've been watching all the old sitcoms, like Everybody Loves Raymond.

I just clicked through from Oh, Hello Love! to see your new design and I have to say that it is so cute and fun. Like a little party on the internet. :)

SO many shows on Netflix to catch up on. Jacob doesn't like to binge watch so we're working our way very, very slowly through a re-watch of Arrested Development. I want to finish already so I can devour another series! Breaking Bad is on my list for sure. Good luck with your IG shop! You have the cutest stuff. If I knew anyone in the world with a baby girl, I'd let them know, but my life is full of boys.
