I know, I know. It’s Friday and the post is called Three Things THURSDAY. But guys, between the two kids, a playdate, and some fabulous roast chicken (to be posted), Thursday just rushed by. So here we go, 3 random things I have thought about/done over the week and get to share with you thanks to our lovely blog hosts The Write Balance, Pink Chai Living, and Love Laugh Mirch.
Thing One: Matchy Matchy Much?
I must confess to having rolled my eyes at the kids who are obviously a few years apart and dressed exactly alike. Apparently Karma is a thing because twice in the last week I have been bamboozled by my 3 year old into finding/ordering an identical outfit for my 6 month old. Sigh. So now if any of you are in Toronto and happen to see two lil ones in the swim outfit below please don’t roll your eyes. It could totally happen to you.
Thing Two: The Book of Awesome
Okay so I am a little late to the party on this one (too), but a friend of mine got an autographed copy of this book for me shortly after Baby No.2 was born. Things got crazy and I only actually got it from her a few weeks ago and started reading it this week. “A high five for humanity” is how they describe it and I think that’s quite apt. It is basically a collection of the little things that make us all happier, but that we don’t ever take notice of. Like the pillow fluff. You know when you’re uncomfortable at night then flip your pillow over, fluff it a little and life is good again. Yeah… 🙂 Every day has so many little feel good moments like this, I love this book for reminding me to take notice of them!
Btw did you notice how I casually threw ‘autographed copy’ in their like the fact that is is autographed didn’t almost make me die from excitement 🙂
Thing Three: Mothers Day
With mothers day around the corner Shana at Ain’t No Mom Jeans (my favorite mom fashion blogger) has put together an awesome gift idea roundup. Love some of the stuff there and so wish I was cool enough to rock leather leggings, but alas that’s another matter for another time. Love the umbrella and raincoat though – even more so given that we seem to have had nothing but rain this past week!

What do you guys think about Mothers Day? Am starting to feel like what should be about expressing genuine appreciation has turned into something far less meaningful. That said who doesn’t like pretty stuff 🙂
