Mushroom Madness

Over the weekend, my husband wasn't as busy as he normally is, and I was able to get in some kid-free time while he hung out with C-note. So what did I do? I went shopping of course! I hit up a few thrift stores and scored a sweet tea pot with mushrooms on the side.  It's $1.50 worth of awesomeness.

I also found a cute little oval frame.  I'm not sure if I'll paint it white or black or even where I'll put it yet, but I liked it all the same and snatched it up for 50 cents.

Have you thrifted anything lately? Where is your favorite place to thrift?

Fresh Friday Finds

It's Friday, I'm into the wine, so let's shop!
Here are some of things I'm crushing on lately...
oh you luscious lime green lovely - how I would love to own you...from Happiknits

I am in serious need of this wallpaper for my bedroom makeover, it's from Cole & Son and uber expensive, lets not tell my husband...

Boots, you're next.  I love that they're biker style, they're brown and they're vegan, plus lots of room in the calf area for my abnormally large calves.  From Alternative Outfitters

I have a thing with cereal.  I love it.  Therefore I'm always on the lookout for the perfect cereal bowl. I think I may have found it.  Not only that, but a local find, gotta love that.  Lurearts Pottery

Sigh.  Better get to work, so I can afford these crush's.

Beautiful Day for a Hike!

Today was a stunning day and I have been so anxious to get out on the trails and test out our new baby carrier.  

I recently bought the Happy Trails child carrier from Mountain Equipment Co-op .  It proved to be perfect for Cash as he was completely comfortable in his heavy winter jacket and pants, he had lots of room and loved being so high up.  He actually almost fell asleep near the end. For me, it was pretty comfortable.  I was skeptical because I love my Beco Carrier so much for it's comfort (and lets not kid ourselves, it's super cute!) but, MEC has done a swell job of making it comfortable - even for short people like me.
