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

 These ceramic measuring spoons and measuring cups-  1/2 tsp of sunshine, 1 tsp of love- AH!     

Happy weekend!

  2. Can't wait to see the kitchen update! Nothing beats getting those steals at Old Navy-I'm so obsessed with that store. And I am dying over those heart bowls! Happy weekend!

  3. I went to Williams Sonoma last week - so many cute Valentine items!

  4. I recently ordered the bra that I like from amazon and I was thrilled it was only $15! That's cheap for a big size like mine!
