Thrift, Dream, Read

The dream part is still in progress (and I imagine will always be to some extent) and as we wait wait wait for a reply from the realtor. But we are trying to be hopeful and if this specific house doesn't work out- we have a few others lined up.

In the mean time I am trying to stay busy and trying*(sorry,Z) not to call Zach a bazillion times a day at work to see if he's "heard anything".

So I've been thrifting,planning our meals out, planning out rooms in my head and color schemes and all the things I would like to try and make,find or get used for Hazel's play. I really want to get her a kitchen set, I would heart a wooden one because I know it is better for her, our home and in the long run probably more durable. That said if we find a recycled one for very little money- I won't turn it down even if we keep it out in the yard.

Here are a few of my recent finds at my favorite little place called, Grace's.

Vintage TMNT (my husband was thrilled that I snagged that), cute little navy button down and a light pink, DUNDER MIFFLIN shirt!

khaki pants that have adjustable legs and a seersucker pair of red shorts that were a mere 25 cents!

Dunder Mifflin tee

A giraffe tunic, a floral shirt and a long sundress.

Action shot!

This week we are laying low,taking in some sun and reading some new books.

for Hazey:

Good-bye Pacifier

and for Mama:
The Kind Diet.

Since the cocktail of colitis meds, seem to be working, I am feeling braver with my food choices again. We've been enjoying green smoothies. This morning was exceptionally delish- Hazel kept signing and saying "more, more!". It was a handful of fresh spinach, 3/4 banana, a splash of OJ, a tbsp of agave nectar, 1 c. of almond milk and 1/2 c. of mangoes. I am hoping this book will reaffirm my reasons for being vegan years ago and help me get back on track.. even if eggs are still in the picture now & then.

She is getting SO big. I can't believe it. What cute thrift finds!!!

Eleanore and Charlie have a wooden play kitchen that we payed way too much money for from Target. And recently I found an old beat up one that was being thrown out, that I srubbed back to life with some soap. I'd give it to little Hazel if y'all lived closer, but I can't, so it'll remain a toy in the garage for now.
