I bought some wool socks a couple of weeks ago. Love them. And now I keep getting ads for all sorts of really nice looking wool socks and clothing. And, well, this is good. But also not good.

Christmas crowds are not my thing.

Inspiration: Cozy Boho Bedding From Target

I’ve been thinking about new bedding for our master bedroom recently, so I’ve had some of these items “saved for later.” I saw that most bedding is on sale this week at Target, and I decided to put together a fun inspo board. And now I want this whole look! 😍

Instead of saying, “What on earth is that?,” Rowyn has been saying, “What is that, on earth?” And I like it that way a lot more. 💖

Inspiration: Target Christmas Pillows

Something about seasonal pillows gets me every time. I love adding one as the final touch on a made bed. Even with no other decor in a room, it just adds a little something special. At Christmas time, I think holiday pillows also make everything feel a little more cozy and magical scattered in the living room or placed on an entryway bench, etc. These are some of my favorite Christmas pillows from Target this year.

Brigsby’s birthday was yesterday. Every time someone told him Happy Birthday, he’d say Happy Birthday back (as though someone had said hello instead). 😊 It was the cutest thing.

Another day, another zinnia bouquet 😍

Photo challenge, Day 3: Precious

Not from today, but she did wear this same dress and boots today, so… 💞

Ro made a “pizza bracelet” for us all to share. All red so it won’t show stains. There was a lesson in there on why it shouldn’t be white or yellow also since her goal was to be able to wear it and not stain it. 😊❤️

Last Week

I thought I was going to “journal” this here on Monday, but here it is Saturday. These things still happened last week, though. And I still want to document them. So…

On Monday, we went ice skating. Highly recommend when it’s 109 degrees (feels like) outside. Kids even fell asleep on the way home. Or came close and acted like they did. Either way, it was a quiet ride home.

Tuesday: We had a homeschool PE day in the morning. Built a double Picasso Tiles marble run and cut flowers with my girl in the afternoon.

Spent the day at home on Wednesday, and Ro helped me make spaghetti for a mommy and kids night while Daddy went to dinner with some friends.

Thursday: lift rides in the church

On Friday, we stayed home. I asked if the kiddos wanted to jump on the trampoline before it got too hot and while it was in the shade. They did. I grabbed the hose to water some plants, and it ended up attached to a sprinkler pointed at the trampoline. Sweet summertime.
