First off, thank you to everyone who sent me sweet birthday notes yesterday, you are all the best! And so far 30 ain’t too bad! :)


Cracking up – at the last photos of Jude in his Halloween costume. I completely forgot to share these earlier and I think they are so funny!

Hoarding – my Pampers points. Does anyone else collect them? I have a TON and I can’t decide what to cash them in on! I’m leaning towards the red plasma car for Jude.

Debating – on whether I should keep these Ugg boots. I’ve had my original Uggs for like 7 years and an original Cardy pair for about 3 years, so they are both starting to show some wear. I had a gift card so I ordered the Lattice Cardy boots, but now that I have them in person I’m not completely sold on them. I feel like the material is very “sweatery” (yes that’s a word) and I’m afraid they are going to get super fuzzy over time and then you won’t even be able to see the lattice on them. Anyone else have these or seen them in person? Should I return these and just get another pair of regular Cardy Uggs? I like how defined the weaving of the originals are, but the lattice pattern is so adorable! File this under #ridiculousproblemstohave

Excited – about the new Keurig 2.0 reusable coffee filter! I had a feeling they would eventually make one of these, and while I probably won’t be filling it with coffee ground (read: lazy) I would love it to make brewing plain hot water easier! I’ll probably wait till I can get it on Amazon or at BBB with a coupon though.

Loving – my MOPS meeting! Two of us had milestone birthdays yesterday (3-0 and 4-0) so they bought us crowns! And I made this little lip gloss flower to give the other girl for her birthday!

In love – with my new birthday frame. BTR did a little laser project to surprise me for my birthday and even found a picture to put in it! I absolutely love it! I think I love it mostly because I’m so impressed with how much he’s learned on designing on his own for laser projects!

Okay not much else to share today! I still haven’t started packing for our trip and I think I’m going to put it off till the last minute. The plane will wait for me, right?

Happy Wednesday Friends!

    Love that frame!!! I hope you had a great birthday!! I used to save my Pampers points, but I stopped, and now I think that I could have bought a mansion with them!! :)

    • Seriously, so many diapers and wipes, and with just one kid! It’s going to get crazy when baby #2 comes, I expect like a day at the spa to use my points on lol!

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Those pictures of Jude are so funny!
    How sweet of BTR. That frame is awesome! Bonus points for a picture to accompany the frame.
    Sounds like a great birthday with your MOPS group! Love the flower lip balm, what a cute idea.

    • I was so impressed he found a photo too! But then I realized he took it out of a frame on our bookshelf, but hey, good effort! :)

  • Elizabeth

    That frame is awesome!!! Your husband did good!
    And those photos of Jude in the shark outfit… too cute!

  • Sara McCarty

    I’m dying over Jude in his costume! That is too freaking cute. And I love that frame!! Happy birthday again!!

  • Such a sweet and special gift, I love that frame! You should definitely keep those UGG boots, they look so comfortable! Xo, Stephanie

  • I totally hoard my pampers points!! In fact I still buy pampers wipes so I can keep earning my grow on rewards! :) Thirty is pretty awesome welcome to the club and happy belated birthday!

    • That is a GREAT idea, and you could just buy a small wipes pack to do it! I will totally have to remember that!

  • Laura Keenan

    Definitely keep the UGGs! They are gorgeous, and I’m guessing they will hold up well!
