My Turquoise Home

Randoms + Recent Purchases

This past week has been a bit crazy with a little bit of everything going on so I thought I would fill you in on what’s been happening and really liven things up around here with some recent purchases for you all!

Here we go:

*Last Wednesday I got my wisdom teeth out and spent three days at home recovering and living off of Boost protein drinks and soup.
*Of course after getting my teeth out, I had to get a cold to make the whole mouth healing process even funner.
*Last Thursday Isla got a stomach bug and couldn’t keep anything down for 12 hours. I hate seeing her sick. Friday morning rolled around and like magic she was able to eat again and spend the rest of the day at the sitters so I could continue to recover.
*Saturday we got out of the house because I was going crazy being couped up inside for the last few days. We went to Babies R Us to get a few things for Isla and then made a stop at Chapter’s on the way home to see if there were any deals I could find.
 *Sunday we spent the day inside as it was super cold out and Isla seemed to be getting a bit of a cold and wasn’t herself.
*Sunday night I was trying to get myself ready to go back to work on Monday and what do you know…I got Isla’s stomach bug from Thursday. 
*Monday I spent the whole day home with a cold and sick stomach all while my mouth ached from having 4 teeth pulled! It all sounds really fun doesn’t it?!
*Now it’s Thursday, my cold is still lingering but my mouth doesn’t hurt as much anymore. I hope by the weekend I feel like myself again!

Now that I have have just wasted 5 minutes of your life by reading all that…here are some things that were purchased over the weekend!

I got these cute gold polka dot folders and pencil case from Chapters. 
They were on clearance!
Isla needed a new bib so I got her this cute fishy one and I had to purchase this cute sweatshirt for Valentine’s Day for $4.98. Can’t beat that price!
I have also been struggling with getting Isla to brush her teeth so I decided to purchase a couple other options to see if they would make it easier for us to brush her teeth. I chose this one and this one. Look for a future post on this! I have also been eying up this Lego Duplo Ice Cream set for Isla and I was so excited to get it for her. She loves it!
Random shot of Saturday morning breakfast thrown in there because…why not?!
We also decided to purchase Isla a potty. She has been giving lots of signs to us lately that she may be ready to try it out so we bought this one from Babies R Us. We got one for my parents place too.
After we got back from shopping, Isla was ready to play.
It didn’t last too long….

Hope you are having a great week so far and you are ready for the weekend!

    Chapter's always has great finds for stationary and things like that! The Lego set you just for sure try. We love playing with it around here. I think I secretly enjoy it more than Isla does and I am feeling much better today! Thanks for your comment.
