Last week I wrote about my post-weaning anxiety and my break from blogging and I'm happy to be back with a five on friday! Just a few randoms about what's been going on...
I'm working on updating my blog! I actually downloaded the template and made the changes by myself- I'm proud! I'm working on changing the name since I don't write too much about being a new momma much anymore. So Pagmina is a nickname I got in college, it's my IG, Pinterest, and facebook name so I figured that would be an easy change.
I just have to figure out the URL and changing the name everywhere.
Today is a big day for us--the start of our kitchen upgrade! It wasn't so long ago that we did a complete kitchen renovation at our old house- you can read all about that here.
But now that we're back in our townhouse we just want to upgrade and update a bit without spending too much money since we aren't planning to stay here forever (although we're still loving being back!)
Today it's the counter tops- going from builder's grade laminate to granite. And then next week our cabinets are changing from walnut to white! I'm hoping it lightens up the whole downstairs!
I've written a bunch of times about how difficult it is for me to find bathing suits and bras. And let me tell you---I'm struggling BIG time! For the first time ever I went to Nordstrom for a fitting and came home with nothing!!! She recommended a bra and was going to order it for me, but it isn't made in my size!!
So online I went---and I've been ordering them from Zappos and Amazon (because, free returns, of course!) And did you know that you can get Natori and Wacoal and a bunch of other good brands so much cheaper?
At this point I'm over spending $70 for a bra that kind of fits, so my latest bra that works ok is a hot pink Natori bra that was $15!
I should add this to my post from Tuesday (splurge vs save!)
On a similar topic- I went to Old Navy this week and picked up a pair of grey pants for Reid that were on sale. The tag said $8.49. But when I paid they came up at $1.47!
The reason I went to ON was because I ordered these jeans online and wasn't sure I had the right size so I went to try on a smaller size. I ended up keeping the 2's. And FYI they're $26 (and 8% cash back with ebates!)
I'm dying over all the adorable heart things for V-day! Everywhere I go I have to restrain myself from buying everything. These bowls at West Elm and the whole display at Williams Sonoma.
