How’s that for an ambiguous post title? Well, today is a little random because pre-planning blog posts these days is getting harder and harder. And, blogging with swollen fingers is no fun either. More on that in a minute. . . For now, a little of this and that:
Remember the orchid I bought at IKEA a couple of months ago? It’s still alive! This is a major feat for me. I keep it on my desk in front of a big window and am sticking to the advice many of you gave me—only giving it two ice cubes per week. It’s working like a charm.
We got the patio furniture that I ordered from Target and are loving it. It’s from the Belvedere collection and so far, seems to be good quality and durable. Like I mentioned before, you can order the pieces separately instead of as a whole set, which was a major plus for me. (And, it just happens to be on sale right now. . .)
I have several little tasks to finish (and document) before I show you more of the patio. But for now, I’m doing a lot of this:
Amy from Eat. Sleep. Decorate. sent me the link to her newly painted front door. Amazing the difference a little color can make. She used Calypso Blue by Benjamin Moore, and it’s such a fun change for Spring.
A quick update on the post I did earlier this week on a free offer from the CanvasPeople. Unfortunately, the offer was changed to 50% off any size canvas, without me knowing. I took down the original post, but if you want to take advantage of the new offer, you can do so here (until Father’s Day).
And, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m still pregnant! I hit the crucial 36 week mark yesterday:
(Yes, I’m cropping out my head on purpose. . .My face looks just as pregnant as my belly at this point.)
Let me just say, as much of a blessing as being pregnant with twins is, it’s also been misery the last several weeks. I’ll spare you the details but to say I’m ready to meet our babies would be a huge understatement.
Thanks for reading my random thoughts. Have a great weekend.
