You'll excuse the cheese factor that I just kicked up a notch with that title,if you couldn't guess what we did today,yes that's right we went to the strawberry fields so I couldn't resist a song title reference and boo to you if you don't like the Beatles.Today's post I could easily break into 3 posts but I'm not so just fair warning this one is a bit picture heavy...but like you mind!Really isn't that the point of blogs is content AND photos?Maybe if I had great writing skills and you were SUPER interested in me rambling on and on about kids,etsy and going to the park then I could get away with no photos but let's admit it,that makes more a rather boring blog.
There are a lot of bad things to be addicted to in this world so I guess I am fortunate that my daughter is a fruit junkie.She has been out of strawberries for 3 days and I swear to the gods its like that kid needs the sugar from strawberries to be cute and sweet and nice.The first 1/2 of our trip she was a bit of a pill but I'm not kidding after we got her some strawberries and she ate a few she was back to her normal soft voiced sweet little self!
I'm trying to teach my daughter the concept of money.She for being only 3 is an expensive habit and likes to go,see and do.Which is more than fine but not always in the budget.We do our fair share of mostly free or very cheap fun things but I want her to be able to understand that when I tell her "no" its not me just being a big meanie but just the reality of life.So my mom gave her a few bucks and let her pay for the strawberries.
And yes she does have pink cowgirl boots,its ok I am jealous of them too.
Now as far as thrifting went today...GAH!My poor mom I had her drive down to Encinita's for nothing.One of the worst thrift stores ever.We stopped by an estate warehouse here in town which I've always loved but haven't been in for many years.They had gotten rid of their clothes room so I was bummed about that.As far as fun things for my etsy shop it was a bust on that end.Their prices are good but not for resale.Personal shopping wise though they're great!Sadly I didn't have the funds for personal shopping though so I figured I'd snap some of the things I saw that I did like.
Um,I'd like this coffee table please!
This desk did make me squeal I won't lie.
Its pink!It would never fly in my house but for f***(<--look ma I censored it so you can't be too upset I do watch my mouth online,promise) sake its pink!
Apparently there isn't much of a market for giant cows because this lady has been in front of the store since as long as I can remember...or maybe she's just not for sale.If she was mine I wouldn't sell her that is for sure.
Wait,did I say I didn't have the funds for personal shopping?Because that was a lie.I did treat myself to this hat because it was only $4.00 and despite husbands begging to differ a gal can never have too many hats.
And the icing on the cake today and if you're not a mom you probably don't care sorry but my mom treated me to a new diaper bag!I loved my old one but it was torn and looking shabby.No offense to moms that have one but I knew from the moment I got pregnant with my daughter that I was NOT going to carry a Winnie the Pooh diaper bag.You want a onesie kiddo with Winnie the Pooh that's fine but I freaking hate,loathe,despise those cutesie little baby themed diaper bags.Check it out retail world:I'm the one that has to carry this thing NOT my baby so I don't want Precious Moments are any of that jazz,ya dig?!Without further ranting here is my new diaper bag.Thanks Mom!
