so what's new with you?

It's hard to believe a month has gone by already! Okay no, not really. I should just come to terms with the fact that as I get older, time goes faster. Or something. Math was never my forte.

So what's new with you?
We are on Letty's last week of school already! Actually tomorrow is her final day. For the year. I am looking forward to having her back with me as you can imagine. With Kindergarten arriving before I know it I want to take the next four months or so to just be with her. Sun up to sun down. I'll have all sorts of adventures planned for us I'm sure. 

Have you seen these Letterfolk boards? They are all over Instagram and I've been stalking them repeatedly for months now.  I love the idea of the letter board and then oh! The possibilities! The quotes! The menu! I could really go nuts. So... if anyone needs a birthday gift idea for me there it is. My money tree has yet to bear fruit.

Alllllso something I've been eyeing up for months and months now? White sheets. While the idea sort of scares (I'm not the best with eye make up removal) me I've read a few bloggers have success with using vinegar to keep them white? I really think they would brighten up our bedroom. Particularly these ivory ones. Can't go full white of course, we have a duvet to contend with.

David has taken to calling any new male in his life Uncle ______. I try and teach my kids to refer to new people as Mister _____ or Miss _______. So I'll say to David say thank you Mister _______ and he will respond with thank you Uncle _______. Evvvvverybody's an uncle. But it's sort of cute. For now.

Baaack to Instagram and my ridiculous addiction to that app I've got some new fun accounts I recently started following. I just love having gorgeous photos in my feed!  Morgan, Kayla, Bohannah and Eve to name a few. I could really go nuts listing gorgeous feeds I've found through the years but I'll save you that torture and stick to just the newest four.

Outlander has been back in full swing on Starz and I've just been really soaking up the lovely period costumes and the political intrigue and oh of course we cannot forget Jamie and Claire... Oh that Scot. I'm just really happy it's finally back is what I'm saying. So I decided to finally (like years later) treat myself to this tee by Brittany. Love love love it! I'm sure lots of non-fans will be confused but I'll be happy to enlighten you, I promise!

Dominic is still a pleasure and a joy to be around. Cut that sarcasm with a knife? His time bomb is constantly ticking and we just never know when it will go off. But I'm starting to get the sneaky suspicion that he's understanding more of what we are saying. Communicating! Big stuff! Hopefully this will help the pig to calm down a bit you know? Or just let him do whatever it is he desires. That would work too.

I recently read about this new app,, and well, it unrolls you from unwanted email subscriptions. It's amazing! I know a few people who could use this to clean up their inbox. Cough. Stephanie. Cough. So if you're like me and have a zillion unwanted email subscriptions bothering you each day you should look in to this. I've enjoyed it so far!

Anyways so... what's new with you?

Linking up with Kristen and Gretchen today! Thanks ladies for hosting!

What's New With You



  1. i totally forgot to linkup today. but anyway - all kinds of new things. yay for school almost over! and yes to insta lust and letter boards. and rad earth supply if we're being honest here. all deadly.

    xoxo cheshire kat

  2. oh i forgot. i have white sheets and they are a PITA but i love them. bc my eyebrows sometimes decide to stay there. but i wash them weekly and replace every year and thats really all that is needed. target FTW

  3. Toris last week of preschool is next week and I enrolled her in a month long playground camp. Its two hours a day, 3 days a week for a month and its pretty much just a waterpark and playground. Dan says he feels guilty because he will be home. I feel like because he will be home we need to try to take advantage of 6 hours a week just us and Ava so we can get shit done lol. I could never do white sheets but I love the look. Also- the letterboards is a funny trend to me because having grown up my whole life in th pizza shop, I have seen and owned my fair share lol. Funny how those things come back around randomly. Another new thing: getting my hair done today. Thinking about going shorter. Might not decide til I'm there.. I know, I'm wild. :-P

  4. I recommended OxiClean Vivid White to a friend (so she was the guinea pig before I tried it) and she said it made her white jeans (that she wears almost daily) almost brighter than new. I'm going to get some this weekend for my sheets and duvet.

    My dog insists on sleeping under the covers and her spot is always filthy. Vinegar works well but I still miss that WHOA white.

    Worth a shot!

  5. Yes I just discovered Letterfolk as well! Obsessed! We have ivory sheets and have no issues. You can do it!! I must check out have a major junk mail problem.

  6. is it bad that my heart does a little flip when i see the word sassenach? hahaha. i want that tee. i'd prefer it in a tank though. good lord i love jamie. sigh. i haven't watched the new season because i really want to read the 2nd book. lol @ david calling everyone uncle this or that. hilarious. and life definitely gets faster the older you get. my husband explained it to me once, it's a real thing - it's because when you are little, you have less time behind you, so a day seems really long, as does a week, month etc. the older you get, the more time you have behind you so you know a day/week/month etc fly by. obviously time doesn't go faster but it feels like it does, according to my science history teacher husband who is 10000 times smarter than me. thanks for linking up with us :) off to find a sassenach tank top.... i blame you!

  7. I just got white sheets a few weeks ago and loooove them!b I got the J.Lopez Egyptian cotton ones as Kohl's but only because it was associate discount time on top of lowest prices of the season otherwise waaaay out of our budget, but boy do we love sleeping in these! And that tee?!!!! How has Brittany not posted about this tee?! Need this in my life! k thanks bye

  8. I love Instagram, you're Kerri's bestie, and she's good people. So, I added you on ig :) Hello, new friend!

  9. ohhh i am totally part of the white sheets club!! i like that i can wash hot and bleach them!! and that tee is the softest ever. :) you will have no regrets!!

  10. Aria calls everybody uncle or just their name. I never remember to refer to people as mister or missus etc, I'm like hm is this going to bite me someday! I don't have a problem with the kiddos calling me Courtney, although to be fair none of them really speak yet. So for now everybody gets to be uncle and aunty.


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
