• Little Things Go A Long Way

    little things go a long way...

    I just spent a really nice week having my mom in town for a visit and it gave me a chance to stop and realize how much little things can go a long way in life. Like the blueberries that I turned into a coffee cake that we ate for breakfast for days. Or the new bamboo shades we hung while she was here that look so much better than the ugly white blinds we had before. Or the extra hour of sleep I got each morning because she got up to play with Charlie… Little things really go a long way in making life better.

    Another new discovery I made recently was Tide Pods and Gain Flings. All you do is toss one into your washer – no more messes and spills, no more hurting my back pulling a heavy liquid detergent bottle off my high shelf. They help me get through my family’s laundry quicker and easier. It’s the little things that go a long way! You can find Tide Pods and Gain Flings at Target (which you know is one of my favorite places).

      I LOVE the tide pods. Such a great idea. It is nice for us since we rent and I no longer have to lug the liquid jug up and down the stairs.

      since you mention the bamboo blinds, will you ever give us a tour of your new place?

        hi Haley! yes, I really want to get a tour of the new place up soon. Since I got pregnant and have had a really rough and sick first trimester (and am still a bit sick into the 2nd) it has delayed my progress a bit. I have a little left to do and have to get the place photographed. but I promise to share! and I do share bits and pieces on my instagram (@ohlovelyday). thanks for asking 🙂

    •  Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
       Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo
