I think you are in trouble when the UPS man knows your name. And, let me tell you, I see that poor guy almost every day. I think I have a problem. I've gotten to the point where I buy almost everything I possibly can online. So much easier than carting two kids to the store.
If Amazon's stock seems to be higher these days, it's because I'm keeping them in business. I adore Amazon! Every time something pops into my mind...like, "oh, such and such would be nice to have"...I run to the computer and buy it off Amazon. So much more dangerous than thinking about buying an item, maybe adding it to a list to buy at the store, and then maybe getting around to buying it. I also get all of the girls' diapers and wipes off Amazon, as well as some food items. With subscribe and save and Amazon Prime, you end up saving and you get it really fast, so...that's my justification.
Also, I adore Zulily! Every day, I get an email delivered to my inbox filled with fabulous things I think I just have to have. Baby clothes and shoes, home decorations, organization items...you name it, Zulily will have it at some point. I need to stop getting the emails. But, what fun would that be? The downside to Zulily is that it takes FOREVER to get some of the items, especially when you are used to super fast shipping from Amazon.
And here are a few fun things I've recently purchased.
Love these Family Rules Signs from Etsy. I just ordered it yesterday and love that it is customizable with your own phrases. I am getting it in distressed black with the phrases "Say your prayers, Tell the truth, Laugh & Love, Be Sweet, Praise God, Mind your manners, Dream big, and Work hard." This one is huge (2'x4') and I'll use it as a focal point in our entry way.
a set of 5x7s and an 11x14, all of photos from the beach in black and white. The 5x7s have come already and I really love them.
Hope you enjoyed my recent finds. I've also gotten into Pinterest and am in the process of making boards for a remodel of our downstairs half bath as well as installation of some built-in bookcases in our study. I'm khabeeb on Pinterest if any of you want to follow and take a look.
