Midweek Randoms

Hope you all are having a good week!

  • Thanks for the nice comments yesterday :)
  • I can’t believe the twins will be here in close to three weeks. That’s crazy.
  • I was just thinking yesterday how I rarely leave the house anymore, which is fine. It’s just so darn hot and I can’t stand/walk. I have my weekly doctor appointment and that’s about all I can do. We had a pediatrician appointment this morning, but the doctor had a family emergency out of town and they had to reschedule. 
  • Friday, we have little Lauren‘s celebration of life service. I know it’s supposed to be a celebration, but my stomach is still in knots over it all. 
  • Remember how I talked about posted about our terrible tile? Well, it’s getting changed! The people doing it came over to finalize last night, so it is happening. We thought they were just going to put the new on top of the old, but they decided to take the old out first. It will be a bit more of a project, but we trust our guy doing it and know it will be great! So, that’s one of the exciting changes :) We hate our current tile and it’s dangerous.
  • So, if you are on Twitter you know this has been the week of Erin Condren  :) If you haven’t checked out her site and designs, you should! Luckily, Plum District has been running specials all week! You get a $50 shop credit for $25! That is a GREAT deal. It’s half off. The deal has bounced around cities on Plum District, but it’s currently in Tulsa and you can find it easily by selecting that as the city. I got these two sets of Erin Condren stationery a few weeks ago via Shutterfly. I had a few gift certificates and was tickled to see she had a few products on there. This week, I ordered a “life planner” with the Plum District deal. (You get $5 off your first purchase if you sign up with my Plum District link :)
  • As I mentioned Sunday, I took some of my shower flowers home. They are still alive and doing good! I LOVE flowers and these bright ones are all over our house. We’ve had to weed out a few, but that’s pretty typical with hydrangeas 
  • For my shower this weekend, I got some fun hostess gifts. At least I think so :) I’m pretty certain they all liked them! I got the clear straw tumblers from the Monogram Chick! I got them all personalized with either their name or monogram. I picked different fonts and colors and it was super fun. The Monogram Chick was so easy to work with and had the cups to me so quickly!
  • I got one for myself, as I couldn’t resist :) I’ll snap a picture of it and post next week.
  • Don’t forget the Monogram Chick is offering my readers a special discount for the month of July. You can find that, here, in the July sponsor post. 
  •  Speaking of the tile, we’ve moved everything off everything and put it the guest bedroom.  Oh, the joys of remodels…
  • I said I would never again put a house for sale and move when I was pregnant. I guess it’s a good thing I left remodels off that list.
  • My mom brought over some figs recently. I like them, but I feel like I should make something with them. They are cute, but I feel funny eating them just as that appear.
  • Speaking of food, I posted a recipe for roasted & stuffed tomatoes yesterday on my food blog.
  • If you are interested in Pampered Chef, make sure to check out this weeks giveaway :)

    Hey Megan!

    Loved the monogrammed tumblers, what a great gift idea! I still have 6 weeks to go with my daughter before my due date gets here, so I am totally jealous that you only have 3 weeks. The summer heat is almost unbearable here in NC! I am so excited to hear the twins middle names. I love unusual names too and I just love Knox and Sloane- too cute!

    I have a 2 year old son named Ryder, and my daughter is due this September will be Brynley. Names were hard to come up with, but I haven't met anyone so far with either of their names.

    I just have to say you look amazing, and to be carrying twins, you look extra amazing! I love getting your yummy food recipes, but have never tried figs. I will be interested to see what you come up with.

    Just an FYI about the Erin Condren deal on Plum District. Code "inwithnew" gets you 20% off the total at Plum District. AND code "welcome10" gets you $10 off at Erin Condren's site. That $10 seems to work towards the shipping costs, too, which is awesome!

    I got the "inspire" life planner and I can't wait to receive it!! :)

    And, I can't believe the twins will be here in just three weeks! Eeek! And, hooray for the new tile job…I can't wait to see the finished product.

    Give Elton a pat on the head from Frisco & Buxton. 😉

    I ordered an Erin Condren planner this week too – as did every other blogger on the planet, I think :) They're so cute; I can't wait to get mine!

    I can't believe it's only 3 weeks now…oh my goodness that's going to be here before you know it.

    I just ordered my life planner too…I'm so excited to get it, Can't wait.

    I am also so ready to see the twins!!! I hope you still have time to blog once they are here! Like others, I also ordered the Life Planner and I CANNOT wait to get it! Did you order one? I think it is a necessity! I used the plumdistrict coupon and I also used "welcome10" at check out and received $10 off! I am very excited.

    I also would like the pasta recipe that Brent made. It looked delicious! Oh and the clear tumblers are adorable. That's such a nice gift to get all of the girls! I am thinking about ordering the hubby and I each one!!!

    Just so you know, you can show us pictures of the clothes now and of the twins modeling everything! Don't worry, we don't mind at all!
