-You know that feeling of getting into bed when the sheets are freezing? It’s terrible and I hate it during the winter months. What do you do? FLANNEL SHEETS! I love them. Although random, this cannot go without discussion. We changed our sheets this weekend to flannel for the winter and every year, they change my life just a little bit. It is so nice to get into bed and not freeze. Just sayin’…
-Is it a bad sign that someone I’ve only known for a few months knows that after Geography happy hour on Friday nights I will inevitably be requesting pizza? In fact, I told Seth I was ready for dinner and this person said, “For pizza?”
-Within the past week, I’ve noticed strangers are no longer wondering if I’m pregnant, but they’re quite confident when they talk to me about it, as though we’ve been long time friends. I even had two female customers at the store strongly disagree about whether I was having a boy or girl based on the way I was carrying. They both really wanted to be right. We’ll see…
-Thank the lord for hand me downs, seriously. People I know well and others I don’t know at all keep offering clothes, etc. If it weren’t for Patrick & Nicole giving us pretty much all of their stuff, clothing, gear, etc. and for others generously passing things along, we may really be feeling the financial burden right now. I’m not kidding when I say that I think we have spent less than $50 so far and I feel extremely grateful for that! I know it won’t always be that way with children, but in our current situation, it is so helpful.
I promised some photos of the handmade gifts that we received at our last shower so check them out! We have very talented family and friends. We appreciate both the necessary and the creative gifts we’ve received, but we thought it would be fun to share some of the one-of-a-kind items here. They even made us a mobile at the shower, but I still need pictures of it. Puff Chick is going to be a crafty one…
Quilt from the Heynens, made by Jennifer Jangles
Screen Printed Onesies, made by Rube & Ellen
Most of you know that I work for Jangles so I wanted to share some exciting news. Jennifer has been working hard over the past few months to expand the gallery space in Watkinsville and we will be starting classes this fall! I say “we” but really I am not teaching this fall, although I will be around a lot helping, etc.
The Jangles class schedule has a ton of different options, something for everyone. Adult classes, kids classes and even open studio time to paint your own pottery! Please check out the website and facebook page for details and specific classes being offered.
If you can’t sign up for a class, at least stop in during store hours to check out the gallery. It looks great and there are tons of gift options. There is even a delicious looking bakery, Kumquat Mae, right behind the store that Jennifer and I have been getting excited to try when it opens
Hope you have a good Friday. Seth and I have a full weekend of things to check off the baby prep. agenda. Enjoy!
