Here a few things that made me happy this weekend.
1. Elastic. the stuff is amazing! I've started using it to make headbands for Charlotte and have since fallen in love (by the way, for any other mommas that use it for the same purpose, buy the kind for lingerie. it's softer AND prettier).
This weekend I used it to make ties for our little man. He always wears bow ties and I thought it was time to switch things up. I used this tutorial and they came out so so cute.
I posed Talmage in front of church this morning to show off his tie. Notice the short hair. Yes I cut it. Yes it is shorter than what I intended. But... I still think he looks pretty darn stud-ly.
2. Being self sufficient.
I finally made it to a Relief Society activity this last week and it forever changed my life. It was all about frugal living. One thing they taught us was how to make some common household items. One day I will make them all but for now I just tried the baby wipes and Febreze. I was especially excited about the wipes because they cost us a fortune.
The wipes are sooo soft and they smell like baby oil. I will never buy wipes again. (Can I get a hallelujah?)
3. This fabric-
4. Target's dollar section. I found this awesome box!
5. And lastly, Charlotte's smile. It's getting wider every day and now she cracks up at us, too. I love it. I love HER. She is an awesome baby.
