Some New Favorites

I'm still catching up on sleep that I missed out on from Saturday night where I stayed up all night thinking I was 21 again!
It was all worth it though because I had sooo much fun.
I am ordering my Train CD from Amazon now, I didn't realize how many songs I already knew of theirs.
Now that I'm back to reality I thought I would share some new fun favorites that I have recently purchased.

I had to go to Costco yesterday and everyone knows when you are there you must check out every item they have just so you don't miss a great deal!
I came across these 2 books and had to buy them.
The James Patterson book was only $6 and the Peter Pan book was $11.
I bought the Peter Pan book because I loved the look of it and because I thought it would be fun for the girls to read when they are older or I could read it to them when they are a bit older.




Kayla loved it and took it and sat in the chair and pretended to read it right away.
She also carried it around like a little school girl, it was so cute.
She loves looking through all of my books and pretending to read them.

While looking through the clothes section I found this adorable jacket for Kayla.
She was in need of a warm jacket so whenever it actually gets cold she will be ready!

Last week I ordered this antique mercury glass vase from Pottery Barn.
I got the large one on the left and actually purchased it to use for holding a candle.
It arrived last night and it is beautiful and huge. 
Perfect for my dining room table which I've been searching forever for something to go on it.




Right now the girls are obsessed with the Littlest Petshop toys so I went out and bought this for Christmas.
They are gonna love it.



Did you know Christmas is only around 9 weeks away!!!
I know it's insane!
I don't even know what to buy anyone, it's only fun shopping for the girls other than that I have no clue what to get anybody else in the family.

Okay let's stop talking about Christmas and get back to the present.
I got this Halloween DVD for the girls and we have been watching it just about everyday and usually more than once!
I was a bit worried at first of Brooklyn being scared but she loves it. 




Now for my new favorite site!!
Have you heard of WUSLU??
When you sign up they send you an email with their daily deal.
Every item is discounted and sometimes they have really great deals.
I just bought this Vintage Laundry Cart the other day.




I don't even know where I'm going to put it yet.
I have seen them used to fill with blankets and pillows next to the couch, filled with kid's board games, books, towels in a bathroom......
so many ideas!!
I'm sure it will be moved around the house a few times ;)


Well that's about all I have to share for now.
Maybe in a couple of weeks I'll come up with a few Christmas items I might want.
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!


 ignore the crazy hair, it was after the nap she never took!
