Happy Friday! I hope you all had a fabulous week and are ready for the weekend! It looks like we’ve gotten our last bit of winter this morning since we woke up to a dusting of snow, but it should be the last storm of the season! I am definitely looking forward to spring and all the things that come with it! Here’s my five for the week!
With spring on the horizon, I went on a little seed-buying spree the other day – everything from herbs to peppers and tomatoes. Last year I wasn’t the most diligent about my plants but we still got a few good ones, so I’m hoping this year we do better! I’m planning to get the seeds started this weekend in hopes they’ll sprout quickly… seeds are so much cheaper to buy than plants and I love having fresh veggies and herbs right on my deck!
I am slightly obsessed with the Pillowfort collection at Target. I’m starting to think about Abbie’s “big girl room” and they just happen to have the perfect comforter! We still have a lot of the lavender paint we used in her current room, so when we eventually move her, we’ll be using the same color… and this comforter is beyond perfect – and this pillow, this lamp and shade, and these storage bins. I’m tempted to go ahead and buy it even though we’re a ways off from a big girl room – girlfriend needs to potty train first!
Speaking of potty training…. I’m hopeful we’re almost there. Abbie is quickly approaching the weight limit for her cloth diapers (35 pounds) and I am certainly not going to start buying disposables after all these years of cloth! I had previously said I wasn’t going to push her… but it’s time. Chris and I need a break from diapers and I think she’s ready, just stubborn. We’re changing her crib over to a toddler bed this weekend (so when we get to it she can get out to go), and I’m hopeful that will kickstart something for her. Our daycare provider is moving houses in the middle of the month, so I think we’ll start shortly after she moves, since she’ll be doing the bulk of the training during the week. If you have any other tips, send them my way!
I made these Lucky Treats with Abbie last night after dinner – super easy recipe coming soon to the blog, and they’re perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
Next week we’re going to have weather in the 70s and I just can’t wait… except this means I may have to buy some spring clothes (sorry Chris).
Have an amazing weekend all!
