Whether it is a craft, DIY project or an outfit, it is alway fun to actually do/make/use the things that you pin on Pinterest. Otherwise it is just electronic hoarding, right? With how we are trying to downsize and minimize our lives, it will be a challenge to still be the girly girl that I like to be when I'm not an over-exhausted new mom. I don't want to loose that part of myself because I do enjoy looking nice but I do want to challenge myself to purge some of the old clothes that I don't wear anymore (which I have already started doing since half of my old Fall/Winter clothes are in the Goodwill pile in our garage) and to get creative in finding cheaper versions of the clothes that I find in the mall or outfits that I find on Pinterest. If you had told the highschool me that I'd become a thrift store shopper, I'd have called you crazy! Waste not, want not, purchasing used just makes sense! It also gets your creative juices flowing.
Ayden was a great little shopping buddy, as always. He took a late afternoon nap for about a half hour while we were at The Goodwill and was in an excellent mood until he went to bed. We started his bedtime routine at 7:00 in an effort to get him to bed earlier but he was ready to party for some reason He didn't get to sleep until 9:30 which is the latest he's ever gone to bed on a normal day without vacation or some event to disrupt the usual routine. If it becomes a new "thing" I suppose we'll have to make some nap adjustments. At least he was cute and happy while we were waiting for him to get tired. We want to keep an early bedtime for him, though, because it is nice to have a couple of evening hours together as a couple while Ayden sleeps. Our nights have also gotten rough again which is a bummer. We are going to give it a little time to see if it might be a phase but if it's not, we're going to have to do something to help Ayden improve his ability to stay asleep for longer stretches. Just when you get used to things working one way, it's time to change them again and it sure keeps us on our toes!
Since I got a good dose of civilization today, I plan to stay home tomorrow and knock out some To Do's!
