A little cuteness and some fun finds

Check out Z Johnson's Etsy shop for these. I am obsessed. I just ordered some for baby shower gifts after Rebecca and I ordered some for a shower we are going to this weekend. We got them and I just love them!!!  Of course I found out about them from  Ashley Ann. Her daughter's hat got stolen. After seeing tem, I realizie how sad that would be..

Thursday did not start out great.
I woke up on a day I'm not going to work and I got ready for bootcamp.
I rushed there and then waited.
and waited.
and waited.
And noone came.
And Satan attacked my mind and told me it must be that people are not motivated by me anymore, etc.
I later found out some valid reasons why people did not come.
But still, at that moment, I felt bummed.
So I went to the gym.
Did some Group Power.
Found out that I've been paying $20 more per month than most people.
But Gold's Gym is no fun and will not give me that price unless I pay a $150 fee, which almost makes up for what I would save monthly.  RIDICULOUS.
But here comes the good news.

"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6 NIV

Oh yeah. It's not about me.
 God will do his stuff. There is no need to get all stressed.
So, I broke through my four mile barrier today.
MY parents arrived from Kentucky :)
Brandon and I got to have a lunch date at our favorite MExican Buffet.
I found some fun stuff at TJ MAxx
 Including these adorable laser cut felt placemats. Just in the store alone, I got three compliments with them in my cart. 
This fun pillow. It reminds me of Pottery Barn Serafina fabric.  
And maybe even the best part:
We went to the junkyard. I wanted a ceiling tile.
No luck with that.
But across the field I see this awesome site:

I think, "What is wrong with that pretty red chair?"
We walk closer and it gets prettier.
It's old. It's a tad dirty.
But it's $10.
So it's a deal!!!!!!
And I think I am going to recover it.
Now I just need to choose the fabric.
So, good thing I didn't stress about the day. I might have missed out on something fun.


  1. Oh my gosh this couch is amazing! I'm so glad you picked it up.

    I nominated you for a blog award. Check out my blog for details.

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  2. OMG I love that pillow! Did they have any more like it at TJ Max? I NEED it for the new house haha. Also, I want you to show me how to make no sew curtains and pillows for my house. Seriously!
