This past weekend seemed to fly by.
Possibly, it's because we were out and about doing tons of errands.
My husband and I had to hit up storage, Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Depot, and the recycling center before we picked up the kids from school.
We picked up this necklace tree from BB&B for Button for her room:
The top extends upwards so there's room to hang longer necklaces.
I spray painted it white to match her room more.
Since she got her ears pierced and will surely have a lot of earrings in the future, I ordered her a tree for those from Pottery Barn Teen last week:
The info said the letter trees are white but it was really off white. It looked really off white. So I spray painted it white as well. Looks much better.
Friday night, we took the kids to eat at Red Lobster, mainly because we love the cheddar biscuits. Oh, heaven. I could eat those all day. But I tried to be good and only had 2. That's a record for me.
And we ended up at Best Buy looking for a phone case for me... one that I actually like. Sadly, I left empty handed.
When I got home, I created this years Mother's Day manicure with the brightest green that I own and my most favorite blue. I felt that since the weather was getting brighter and happier, the nails needed to match:
We ended up out and about again. This time, we went to Target to get Peanut a new bathing suit and get a few groceries. We also stopped by Hallmark to get Mother's Day cards for the grandmothers. (Yeah, we should try to get to that earlier.)
I made a stop at Joanne Fabrics to get some fleece to make a blackout shade for Button's room. I put one in Peanut's room over a month ago and she sleeps so much better now. Button requested one so it will let her sleep in a little on weekends.
And then I went to the one place that I usually refuse to go: the Mall of America.
Normally, I wouldn't go near it on a Saturday but since I just had to go to Nordstrom and it has an entrance outside, we braved it for the Trish McEvoy counter. We were in and out in less than 8 minutes.
We ended the night at Sonic since it's been months since any of us have had the deliciousness that is Sonic. I wanted tots. And a coney. And everything else.
I have a love/hate relationship with Sonic's menu.
There is SO much to choose from which is a blessing and a curse.
I'll make a separate post for Mother's Day.
