Loving Lately

Just a pop in of things, I feel compelled to share with the world... or 5 people who still read here.

The girls' classes were cancelled on Monday due to a delayed start for the school district, so we spent some of our morning at the library.  They picked out this book, Little Red Gliding Hood, and it is seriously sooo cute.  Lots of cameos from your favorite storybook characters telling a new adventure for Little Red who loves ice skating.

I might be way behind the times with this one, but I am obsessed with Crayola Twistable Crayons. It's like crayon meets eyeliner.  Ashlynn loves to peel the paper off crayons which makes me twitchy and a huge mess.  I also feel like crayons are constantly snapping in half, maybe it's because they are naked or because the kids are just actually breaking them in half on purpose, but these twisters are awesome.  They help the girls with their pincer grip since they hold them like pencils.  We have the set that comes with neons, metallics, and multi-colors and they are huge hit.

I was a bit unsure during the holiday what to get for my teenage nieces.  Toddlers I have nailed down, but teens actually have opinions, and actually remembering my teens years vs my toddler, I remember how hard to please I could be.  Since they are southern girls, I decided to go monogramming something and picked up S'well for Target water bottles.  The bottles were on sale for $10 a piece and I was able to get them monogrammed at a local shop nearby. Going through Etsy would have cost double, shop local friends!  They were a huge hit with the girls and to be honest, I kind of wish I picked one up for myself!  This will definitely be on my Mother's Day wishlist.

I stocked up on a bunch of athletic gear from Old Navy last week when it was up to 50% off plus additional 30% off all items.  Everything should be arriving tomorrow, so I'll follow up if it's worth the pennies I paid.  I've never purchased work out clothes from them and was a bit hesitant too, but I've heard good things, so I'll be sure to share my sometimes picky opinion.
