Three Things Thursday

Three Things Thursday

Hello and welcome to this weeks collection of random three things that I have been up to or thinking about, but wouldn’t write an entire post about. That’s in large part because I have a food blog and don’t really know how I would tie some of this stuff in 😉

Thing One: Pretty Perfumes

At one point I had a modest collection of perfumes, at this point I am down to one that I love (Miss Dior), but I can see that it’s coming to an end. Since I no longer casually saunter through department stores smelling hundreds of bottles of perfume for fun (jk, I never did that) I didn’t know what I wanted next. As it turns out those perfume adverts in magazines that I usually just ignore have little strips you can open up and smell and these ones are just so pretty.

One day Kate, one day.

Thing Two: Her turn

Perhaps it’s just me, but with my first I was so excited to do things with her, share things with her, come up with new experiences, but with my second it is not even close to the same. Most of the time I plan around my older ones schedule and interests and my second is the lucky beneficiary of her sisters choices.

Well a visiting friend provided the perfect excuse for me to change that and this week I took Mishaal to a nearby farm. She loved it. All of it. From just being outdoors to running among haystacks to the mega bumpy slides and her favorite part – the sand pit where she would pick sand up in her little fists and squeal excitedly as she threw it. I cannot wait to take her back. Just her even.

Thing Three: Beautiful Words

This is a bit of an old one, but since I came across it recently I thought I would share one of BuzzFeeds many lists. This one is called 51 Of The Most Beautiful Sentences In Literature. Read, Reread, Absorb.enhanced-buzz-wide-14821-1417821631-7

Thanks for coming by as always and do remember to check out the three host blogs – Love Laugh Mirch, Pink Chai Living, and The Write Balance. Not only can you see their TTT posts there, but those of other bloggers as well!

    You have such a cutie! I’m expecting my second and the thought occurred to me recently that it is going to be a very different experience this time around! Glad she had such a fun time at the farm!

      Thanks Ritu! It really is so different, but then I remind myself my second has the advantage of my first as a playmate 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to add another perfume to my collection… But like you said I just never have time to wonder around the mall smelling them all. Thanks for these two suggestions… I’ll check them out!

    I only have one perfume bottle as well and I’m sure it’ll run out soon (as I’ve had it for more than 5 years!) I love the pretty bottles that you found. I’ll keep them in mind when I run out. And I have to agree, parenting your second child is always so different from parenting your first. Glad M had so much fun at the farm! Happy to have you linking up to 3 Things Thursday!

      Thanks Salma! Btw from one frugal mama to another I just discovered the little perfume roll ons at Zara. At 7 per tube they’re a nice inexpensive everyday option!
