What's New

1. After 3 years with a cheapish set of plates, the chips finally put me in the market for a new set. (Yes, my wedding ware is boxed away in Memphis;) I've been stalking these dishes for months at the home store in town. It paid off when I recently happened upon a 50% off sale and bought 8 servings with confidence. Love them!

2. We're into upgrades these days because we are going to keep our apartment here while in the USA. The last thing I want to do is return to South Asia next May with a long list of to-dos and a new baby in tow. This may not seem like much to some of you, but when you line dry clothes for an entire family adding another pull up laundry line is better than a birthday present! 

3. Also on the list has been a mini-makeover in the boys' room. My mom sent me back with a monkey duvet she snagged on clearance. I cut and stitched it here and there....wah-lah...some pretty fun new curtains that Jude adores. Now for clutter clearance! 

4. Target sucked me in and I bought a new extensions for the boys' train set. We are talking hours of obsessive play, friends. Who knew? Hope the magic doesn't wear off any time soon! 

5. My friend Shannon gave me a copy of Lysa Terkeurst's latest book Unglued, Making Wise Choices in the midst of Raw Emotion. I'm half way through, and it is definitely worth your time. 

That's what's new around here!
