Hello February!  It's crazy how quickly time is flying, although last week did seem to drag out probably because the husband was traveling for work.  A full week in San Diego, receiving beach front views via text while I go stir crazy with two little people and two little dogs.  However I, too, received a 'daddy's home' gift, so I can't really complain.

I was able to get out for a few hours on Saturday morning to enjoy some errands solo.  A chance I spent 90 minutes strolling Target with latte in hand.  I picked up some gifts for a birthday party and then jumped over to Lowe's to grab some wood to complete I project I've been meaning to do for about a year now.

I purchased the bunny art as a digital download and it's what basically inspired Ashlynn's orchid bunny room. I finally had it printed as a 18x24 poster, simply attached it to some craft boards and hung on the bare black wall next to Ashlynn's bed.  I was hesitant to hang anything with weight or glass since the girls do climb into the bed and there is the occasionally wrestling or jumping session.  While this is hanging by a push pin, the bottom dowels are attached by a command strip to keep it from rocking or pulling away from the way.

I also snuck in a stop at my local "Magnolia Market".  This store, The Nest, just moved locations and while no Chip and Joanna or giant Silo to shop, it's quaint and filled with goodness you'd see on Fixer Upper.

Yesterday, Ashlynn attended a friend's Princess Party.  Princess Aurora and Maleficent made appearances and while she was a bit apprehensive of Maleficent she was definitely star struck by Sleeping Beauty.  I had her sit next to her during story time since she didn't want to gather around Maleficent.  She pretty much just (creepily) stared at Aurora in awe, definitely only acceptable when we you are three.

After, we discussed some options for Ashlynn's birthday and finally came up with a great idea for her party.   I might be just as excited as she is, I'll definitely share soon!
