This post was slated for last Friday as I used to do these Friday Favorites posts every Friday. Then my schedule became unpredictable and I stopped doing them. I had this one almost ready to go, but then found myself on Thursday night, exhausted and realizing it wasn't going to be ready. This may surprise you when you see how sparse it is. But, you know, sometimes even the sparsest of posts are just too much.
But anyway, some recent favorites.
My Justin Bieber T-Shirt
I spotted it at Target and it had to go home with me. I wear it to bed and it's now my favorite sleep shirt. My husband hates it. Well, he sort of thinks it's funny, but that was only after I told him I would only wear it in the house. Is it too late to tell you I'm sorry, baby?
Walgreen's Instagram Photos
I don't know when they started doing this, but Walgreens will let you upload your Intagram photos and then make 4X4 prints that are ready to be picked up in an hour.
This helped me out last week when I had one day to put together photo collages of the kids for their new pre-school/after-school program. I was give a month and a half to do them. I waited until the night before. I'm going to be great with science projects and homework, aren't I.
A Recent ThredUp Purchase
I know I've mention ThredUp a few times, but I recently bought something I love.
One thing that drives me crazy about them is that if you put something in your cart, it only stays there for 24 hours before it disappears into the mass of online inventory. Don't they understand that one of the benefits of online shopping is that you can leave items in your cart? For like, ever? So it does get a little difficult to make the final decision that I'm ready to buy. Usually, for me, one dream item will appear and then I know I'm ready to pull the trigger, whether or not I'm at or above the $79 minimum for free shipping.
The dress above, was that dream item. It's a sweet pink Laura Ashley dress in size 5T which means it will be perfect for her next spring and summer. It's cotton, so not too fancy, and with a bow in the back. I got it for less than $10. When I found out I was having a little girl, this is the kind of dress I dreamed about.
I also scored a nice Gymboree plaid shirt and a new-with-tags pair of corduroys for my little man's fall photos. I still shop for myself, but I'm finding some great deals on nice kids' clothes.
There comes a time in every pet owner's life when the pet tells you they are pissed off in the grossest way possible. That time has come for us when, in May, we took a week long trip and the cat sitter dropped the ball. A particular rug in our basement, close to where I do my morning workouts, is taking a beating. I've been trying everything, but ended up finding this Pet Block.
My husband and I did finish the eight-episode first season of Stranger Things on Netflix and we loved it. There were a few times when I could tell he was spooked. Then he'd look over at me and see the front of my sleep shirt and would be spooked even more.
So there you go....just a few favorite things. What's worked for you for a persistent pooping cat? Have you watched Stranger Things?
