Coffee Conversations

Social Squares

How was your week? Mine went by pretty fast, which was a sharp contrast to last week! We don’t have a ton on the agenda this weekend. We’re in the middle of a big clean out/reorganize our garage project, so I’m sure we’ll put in some work on that! It’s wild to me how tasks and projects take about 10x longer when there’s a baby around. I’m learning to just go with the flow and know that those things will eventually get done, even though it’s very much not in my nature to have a project hanging over my head for weeks!

Liam’s first tooth popped through this week! I actually didn’t even know that it was close to coming through and then I did a quick gum check one morning and felt it. Mike and I were just talking last night about how quickly things seem to be going. It’s like he went from a little baby that didn’t do much, to a baby that army crawls, knows stuff, and popped a tooth! I’ll never get over how quickly it all seems to be going by with him.

We’re making room for some new jewelry at Elisabeth Ashlie, so a bunch of items have been discounted!

I’ve got a new true crime podcast recommendation for you – Chameleon: Hollywood Con Queen (by Campside Media). If you enjoy stories about insane scams, you’ll like this one!

Our favorite wireless bra is currently BOGO 50% off + 25% off! Such a good deal!

I’m considering moving a few rooms around at our house and creating a proper play room/hang out room on our second floor. With Liam getting mobile, I would love to have a place for him to play freely and explore without us having to watch his every single move in our downstairs area. I’ll definitely share if we actually switch things up, but until then, I’ve been browsing Pinterest for all the play room inspiration.
