Happy Friday! Let’s get to this week’s five, shall we?
You may have noticed it looks a little bit different around here today! Fran from Freeborboleta Designs installed my new blog design last night and I’m in love! I wanted something simple and feminine with lots of room for customization, and she took all my ideas and brought them to life! If you are ever looking for a custom design, Fran is WONDERFUL. She’s responsive, understood my crazy requests that I didn’t know the words for, and extremely reasonable with her rates. One of the downsides to being on WordPress for me has been the cost of a custom design since they are typically much more than blogger designs. It was really important to me that this design be something I can grow with and use for a long time, and she delivered. I’d love to know what you think! (P.S. If you’re military or a repeat customer, she gives discounts for that!)
One of Abbie’s favorite things to do right before her bath is to lay in our bed and pretend to go “night night.” Last night her Skye helicopter came with her. Sometimes these moments make me think she’s ready for a big girl bed… but why should I fix what isn’t broken? She’s happy in her crib and has never tried to climb out, so in the crib she stays.
Remember how I said last weekend was a blur of activity? Well, this weekend is shaping up to be busy too. Summer is just that way, I guess!
I got some supplies this week to make some fun essential oil DIYs and I’m so excited to try them! I’ve already made laundry detergent (which I’ll share soon), but next on the list is diaper cream, body butter, sunscreen, and shaving cream! I’m so excited to start replacing all the store bought stuff with homemade oily goodness.
Getting out of bed in the morning for work is already rough, but you know what makes it worse? This cat. The moment our alarms go off, she climbs all over us in search of cuddles. Good thing she’s cute.
Well, that’s all I’ve got this morning – I hope you guys have a happy weekend!
