Weekend Recap 7.25.16

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a fun filled and relaxing weekend!  I know it definitely was that for us over at the Thrift for Today house and I remembered to take some photos of all the happenings around here! 

I got this awesome voxbox from Influenster and Mayfield Ice Cream in the mail on Friday and I cannot wait to get some ice cream!

Momming in the Mundane

Before you say it, don't worry, I already know.  Momming isn't a real word.  But, it's a made up word and I use it somewhat frequently in real life when people ask what I do.  Hubs even laughed at it and likened it to the other made up word that is making its way so quickly around people my age and younger these days - adulting.  And just to be clear, I don't use that word.

But, momming, man I love so much that I get to be a mom to our sweet little.  So, today, I'm starting a little series here called "Momming in the Mundane: Appreciating the everyday joys of motherhood" in which I hope to document some of the little things that happen around our home that just make my heart swell.  Sometimes these are major milestones, and more times they are sweet baby giggles when I make a silly face.  But I want to remember it all.

Budget Recap: June 2016

I feel a little late with this post this month, but I want to be sure to post it anyway.  Last month, I started posting budget recaps of the things that I purchased with my "fun budget" in the previous month.  If you're interested, you can check out May here.

Basically, hubs and I allocate $75 to each of us each month in a "fun budget" pool.  This amount is what we can each spend on things that are totally for us because we want it.  Since going through my closet post-partum, I've really been wanting to update my wardrobe with pieces that I love, make me feel confident and put together, and that I will get lots of wear out of.  In June, I spent most of my budget on that.

Sunglasses: $5.99 from Ross Dress for Less.  I don't have a photo of these, but they will definitely make an appearance soon.  They're my only pair, so if you see me in sunglasses in a photo, they're the ones.
