It’s Friday! This week has truly been a mixed bag. The low was that my granny has been in the hospital (prayers for her heart would be so appreciated); the high was that I was able to spend extra time with my sister this week. She truly is the best medicine. I feel like she is a human therapy dog (not that she is a dog) but that just swimming with her or playing a silly game we’ve made up or painting or drawing elephants brings me so much joy. She is such a blessing to our family. You have no idea. As family members endure truly hard things and we try to process and help, she is there keeping a smile on everyone’s face.
So, I guess that’s number one. My sister.
So do you love the title to this post or what: Flower Crowns, Anthropologie Adventures, Sisters, Nonna in Leopard Ha!
Number two: DIY Flower Crowns are coming Tuesday to the blog. I have wanted to do this pretty much for the last two year and it’s finally happening. Hopefully everything turns out the way I want it too. HA.
Number three is how much stuff I accomplished this week. From business related things like banking (several hours), picking up what I needed for the flower crowns, finally getting my passport photo done, and some photography items I needed…I literally crossed off everything I needed to do in the burbs. I love cities. Obviously. But ya gotta love howyou can hop in the car and get that all done in one day. I’m so glad I was able to get everything figured out, especially for the business end but it does mean I am going to have to work this weekend.
Number five: the reason why I went to Anthropologie was because I wanted this Roma mug. Of course, they didn’t have it (Seriously?) but I found out they have an SF one (I knew they had NY, Paris, London, and a few more). I needed the Roma mug. I talked to my mom because I am on a serious budget with starting this business and showed her a pic of the mug telling her I needed it. And she agreed, which shocked me. Because she’d be the first one to say it’s not a necessity. But then I found the SF one and I felt like I need the loves of my life, SF and Roma, in my hand for my once a week latte. Actually maybe I made money because since I got those, I am returning the one thing I got from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Anyway, they ordered the mug I needed and I brought home the other. So…
PS Are you signed up for my monthly newsletter? Um…you should be and even if you are, you need to do me a favor and ask Nonna a question here. She is the bomb. You can ask her anything anonymously: romance, sex, motherhood, life, cleaning, beauty, fashion, technology, trials, tribulations. She knows it all. I mean, just look at her bathing suit. Babe.
