Friday Stories

Woooohoooo! It's Friday! Let's keep this short and sweet and hop right in to storytime.

I first found this wrapping paper at Christmas time and used it paired with Christmasy washi tape for every.single.present. It quickly became my "signature" wrapping paper. Birthdays, Christmas, boy, girl. Just switch up that washi tape and you are all set! Imagine my disappointment when Target stopped carrying it. Then, out of nowhere, I'm minding my own business, just strolling the clearance selection and I see a pot of gold. For .50 a roll. I grabbed 12. I only resisted buying all of them because I thought I should be nice and share. I'm going back on Saturday to buy the rest. A two day waiting period is acceptable, right?

This little man. He's finally stopped throwing all of his stuffed animals out of the crib every night and now he has to have "mo" and "acho" (Elmo and Nacho) and his blanket by his side. I am secretly so excited that he has a "blankie" because we're blanket people around here and it was weirding me out that he didn't have one.

Ever since Desiree introduced me to the Loved by Hannah and Eli line, I have been wanting a tank but most of the time she's sold out :( Today I lucked out and hit refresh on the website no less than 50 times and scored this amazing tank before everything sold out (in 3 minutes)! If you know how much I loooovvve July the 4th, then you know how pumped I am!

This guy. Again. Trying to act like such a tough guy with his hat and sunglasses... and Target safety sticker.

I think I've talked a little bit about how we've had bathtime issues. It's made bathtime horrible. Clay went from bathing everyday to bathing 2-3 times a week (grosses me out). He was due for a bath on Tuesday but without Mike here to help I was dreading it. What do I do? Run to my mama. Well, sorta. We just called her right up on Facetime and she sung to Clay to keep him distracted. What did she do to get this face? Sang Old McDonald. Mammaws are the best, huh?

Have a great weekend!

I'd have bought all the wrapping paper then, no saving for someone else! :)

Walmart has these little tablets that can change the bath water into a different color or soap crayons for drawing on the wall with. All these could make bath time much more enjoyable for everyone.

Oh my goodness, that pic with the hat and glasses is tooooo cute! I totally hear you on the wrapping paper - when you find a great signature look that you can switch up with different tapes, you definitely need to snap it up (especially at that price!).

i would have bought all the wrapping paper as well - such a good idea :-)

I would have left some wrapping paper too. I have this irrational fear of making strangers hate me. How would they know it was me who took it all? They wouldn't. I'm just nuts!

And on a totally unrelated note, I nominated you for the Liebster Award :)

What a smart thing to do during bathtime!
