I am linking up with up with Karli and April, as always.
One. Ladies (and gentlemen if I have any male readers!), I have date night with my husband tonight and I am super excited. Sure I still walk like I am 90 years old and I eat like a bird (courtesy of my abdominal binder), but I can't wait to try to get dolled up and hit up dinner with my handsome husband. And by dolled up, I will either have to shave my legs so I can wear a dress or opt for my Lululemon leggings since I have some major swelling going on in my stomach area. Either way, a night out is needed since my husband has been the best nurse this last week!
Two. Have any of you ladies used the Munchkin 360 cups for your toddlers? Lynn (over at Dispositive Motion) mentioned them in an email exchange this week and they look awesome. My girls love their bottles and love to drink out of regular cups, but they haven't taken to their sippy cups. We have tried so many different sippy cups and no go. But they will drink water straight from the glass with our help. They sometimes spill on themselves, but they love water from the glass. This could be my answer. The cups seal after the child takes a drink from them.
Three. Karli recently did a blog revamp and used Etsy for a simple but cute template and it was only $9. I have been wanting to freshen up this blog for quite awhile, but didn't want to spend a bunch of money on a custom design. So I have started the search for something that fits my current state of mind. Stay tuned for a fresh look to Sparkles and Lattes.
Four. The Canadian dollar is at a low right now. $1 US = $0.75 Canadian Dollar. What does this have to do with me and you? The store Roots. When I went to Toronto in the past for work, I always stayed near a mall that had Roots and so many other stores. And the US Dollar wasn't strong there so I always paid a higher price for everything I bought there. But I love their stuff. I have a sweatshirt, sweats and a shirt from there. My husband has received gifts from there. As well as my mother in law and sister. The point is, I wish I had a work trip there to buy all the things. Here are a few things on my wish list.
The side slit on this shirt is perfect for spring and I need this or something like this in my closet. So ladies, any suggestions or places to find it at a more reasonable price? And the bird sweatshirt is so cute, and I have nothing like it in my closet. Perfect for spring. And I could live in these skinny sweat pants. I have some sweats from there that aren't skinny, but they are my favorite. And I know these would become a favorite of mine as well. Need and want them all. So I am hoping to find similar items for less.
Five. We never got the girls one year old photos, and I am totally regretting it. So I need to set up 14 ish month photos for them. They are getting so big, changing daily and I need to capture it. But I am not sure who I should choose. We have had two different photographers take pictures of the girls over the last year. My dear friend Ali gifted us their newborn photos and we love them. But then I won family photos around the time the girls were 5 months old and we used her again for our Christmas card photos. Should I branch out and try someone else? Go back to one of the ones we used before? Ugh decisions. And one that I need to make ASAP. #momfail
Hope you all have a good weekend!
