Estate Sale Finds-Color Edition!

Wonderful, unique finds! What a rush.
Thursday afternoons I get a bit of "time off." I go to any appointments, lunch with a friend, and, lately, estate sales. Recent finds:
Kitchen linens; want to keep them all (rather than sell)
I don't know if I will be able to pull off the busy print on the right, but someone will!Canister set! $8; not the best deal but still great
Bag is cute. Boy is SUPER cute.
On another note,
I have been to Aldi three times this week.
I am not a details, listy person...just ideas and wild dreams all the time,
brain always whirring and busy...very disorganized...signing up for too much,
so it makes sense (dumb sense) that I always forget that onion or parmesan cheese
while on an intentional "meal plan minded" grocery run.

I need help! Someone organize my life!


Sweet Aldi checker gal Katy and I are on a first name basis, plus she knows the kids' names. I guess Story's sweet spirit/adorb factor and Wilder's gorgeous grin/tip of the nose specs are unforgettable.
Duh. Of course they are.

I told check out lady Katy that today we made no-bake cookies and were just enjoying the weather.

She said, "awwww I am so jealous."

Friends, this was just the jolt of reality I needed. So often I take for granted that I get to stay home with my babies, making cookies, making messes, adhering to very lax schedules. And not every mom who wants to do that, gets to. It just helped shift back my focus a little.

Thank you so much, check out lady; throw in some free chocolates and you'll never get rid of me.
