Today, I'm heading over to Old Navy. This Spring, in order to make my shopping more purposeful, I came up with a wish list of sorts. These are the items that I think will help complete my Spring wardrobe...
Green utility vest
6-10 inch shorts
White Jeans (if I can ever find a pair that aren't see through)
I've had luck finding a utility vest at Gap and some longer shorts at Loft, so now I'm on a mission to find some jeans. And as always, I'm on the look out for some cute and feminine tops. I always like to peruse online before heading to the store so I don't just walk around aimlessly. That's when I found this hat and purse so I definitely want to check them out in person too! If you have a pair of white or distressed jeans that I must try, please let me know!!!
When Noah was in school this week, I spent some time going through our linen closets, our bathroom drawers, and organizing the extra toiletries we keep under our bed. I got rid of a lot of extra makeup that I never wear and is just plain old as well as expired medicine. I was amazed at how much "baby" medicine we still had and have no use for any more! I was ruthless and kept only things I actually use. It's so nice to have everything neatly organized instead of in a jumbled mess.
I'm always looking for new recipes to try. So when I found this chicken dish, I was excited to try it! Unfortunately, I didn't have much success with it. Not only was it just okay, but I ended up burning my hand! The crazy thing is that I did the exact same thing two and a half years ago! I think it has something to do with putting a frying pan in the oven. When taking it out I have no problem remembering to use a pot holder. But then once it's on the stove, my mind goes to auto pilot and forget that the handle will be hot. And let me tell you that grabbing a piping hot metal handle hurts like hell! I immediately screamed and started crying. Thank goodness Chris was home to make sure Noah didn't freak out and was able to make me an ice pack. I literally had to keep the ice on it all evening and even fell asleep with it on. I ended up using it again yesterday when it started hurting again. I hope it doesn't scar! And as for the recipe... Chris told me later that he would be happy if I never made it again. Apparently the clean up was a *itch too!
Noah recently got a new toy... the Gup X! He's recently become a huge fan of the Octonauts show. I actually like this show too... I have learned so much about marine life from it! When we were at a recent play date, they had the GupX and Noah played with it the entire time! We immediately ordered it on Amazon and saved it for a special treat (which doesn't mean much over here lol!). Noah plays with it non-stop and gets so excited when they use the Gup X on the show!
