This past weekend is the first weekend we have had at home in a long time where Matt did not have to work and possibly the last weekend home before the end of the year. On top of this amazing occurrence, Matt offered to watch Morgan on Saturday while I went out, did some shopping and basically had some "me" time. I cannot say enough how much I appreciated this "me" time. I LOVE spending time with Morgan, but the one thing I have missed the most since becoming a parent is the freedom to just leave the house by myself and wander the aisles of a store, even if I don't buy anything.
I did actually have a purpose for shopping this past Saturday. As previously mentioned, we planned a night with the Chadwicks. Dinner would be served and then Matt & Josh would watch all of the girls while Kristin and I got to work on some felt Christmas ornaments. We were both looking for ways to keep our trees fun, but still kid friendly! I am a really SLOW sewer and I forgot to pick up fabric glue, so I only got two ornaments completely finished and even then, I need to add some sort of ribbon for hanging on the tree.
Before I sign off, I do want to share an exciting purchase that finally came in the mail this week! About 6 months ago I purchased a deal on Heartsy for an Etsy dealer that crocheted hats. About a month ago, I finally used my deal and purchased 3 hats for under $30! Below are the first two hats for Morgan, they match her winter jacket (courtesy of Aunt Jamie) perfectly! The last hat is for our new arrival due in April. Since it will be a spring baby, I thought the chick hat would be perfect for pictures!
