this & that

I know I already posted a blog for today, but I have to post one more to say happy 10 months to my sweet baby Isaac. I can't believe it has been 10 months since I met you with your funny light strawberry blonde hair, squished little nose, and lobster red skin. You have been bossy from day 1 but I wouldn't have you any other way!

Also. Yesterday I went by Raley's to see my mom and while I was over there I decided to walk down to the Goodwill. I hadn't been in a while and I'm so happy I stopped because lots of treasures were to be found! I picked up a couple plastic kitchen storage bowls in a robin's egg blue and minty green. Best part...they were $2 total! Also picked up a ton of pink Japanese lanterns...brand new in the package still (there was still a ton left when I was checking out if anyone is interested). They had giant ones and small ones...they must have been left over from someone's wedding or something.

I even picked up a tiny leopard print baby onesie because it was too cute to leave behind. And maybe one of my favorite finds...a turquoise bead necklace...I almost bought a similar one at Urban Outfitters for $28 but just couldn't bring myself to spend that on costume jewelry. Well the one at the thrift store was even cuter and more so what I was looking for and it was only $2! I love how God takes care of us...even the tiny things that don't seem very important...

And my last find were these mugs. These were in the section of new things that the Goodwill buys or has donated from stores to sell. Blue and green have slowly become my favorite colors and I loved the prints on these mugs.

In fact I googled the designer, Trish Richman, when I got home. Turns out she is a San Francisco based graphic designer and the mugs I bought were designs she did for Bloomingdales! I got each one for $1.50...not too shabby if I do say so myself!

Happy weekend everyone!
