First things first....the nursery.
I found material a week ago at a fabric store that I loved, but was extremely disappointed yesterday when we made it there to purchase the material before their sale ended on it and they were out. Then, with my grandma's (an amazing seamstress) help, we determined that in order to do what I wanted to, it was going to be at least $70 just for material for the curtains. On sale. Um...nope.
So being the creative women they are, my mom, aunt, and grandma started explaining to me that you can use sheets to make curtains, etc. I had never thought of that! So we went on a sheet hunt! I lucked out at one of our last stops...TJ Maxx. Loved the store before. Love it even more now. For $39.99, I found the perfect King size sheet set that will have enough material to make the curtains, a bed skirt, and pillow covers. (That's almost half the price that just the curtains were going to cost.) And should I add that I actually like this material better?

Other simple finds that made me so excited were the goods pictured in the next photo...
-a new planner (from Target) that is spiral bound and lime green. perfection. (my heart leaps for joy when it comes to planners. weird. i know.)
-a floral website password organizer (again, from Target, of course). This was a guilty pleasure I had to have. It will make my pregnancy brain a little less annoying.
Since Miss Adeline will make her debut a little over a month before Christmas, I decided to get started on my Christmas shopping. I made a nice dent in my list already just from yesterday! yay!
Okay, I think that's all for now. My heart was overflowing with excitement over these simple things. Aren't the simple things the best?
