Lately...

Haven't done one of these posts for a while, so I thought it'd be a good way to to post about a bunch of random stuff.

Playgrounds
The weather has finally started cooperating around here so we've been hitting up parks like crazy. Harry has a blast every time we go. His current favorite attraction is the slide. We were sticking to the little baby slides, which he likes, but recently graduated to the big twisty slide, which is like the best thing in the world according to him. He also likes the big boy swings now, too!







Once Upon A Child
Saturday we hit up our favorite kid's resale shop. We always take a box of stuff to sell and this time we made $35, which we promptly used on some new clothes for Harry. There wasn't much to choose from but we found some cute pieces. After the stuff we traded in, all this cost us just $15!


New Shoes
I've been wanting a new pair of gym shoes for a long time. My old ones were over 6 years old! I've been good and getting to the gym twice a week for a while so I figured I deserved some new kicks. Kohl's was having an athletic shoe event last week so I picked up a fun pair of Nikes. And the best part? They're only a size 9 :). I have clown feet and usually wear a 9.5-10.


Canceling Cable
After over a year of deliberating, Ant and I finally agreed to cut the cable. I was hesitant to do it because I enjoy watching the Today Show most mornings and the rabbit ear-type antennas don't work very well at our place. We found out that Comcast offers a super basic TV package that only includes 10 channels, so we recently switched to that. We no longer have HD channels and lost our DVR, but it's saving us a ton of money each month. However, we do get HBO for some reason. I don't miss the extra channels (the only other channel I used to watch was E!), but I really miss the DVR. We have Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime and Netflix, so we've still got plenty to watch around here.

Leaves
Sunday I noticed the first leaves of spring! Always one of my favorite days of the year. And despite the harsh winter we had, they popped up over a week earlier than last year!

  1. Totally jealous of your weather.
    I am anxious to get outside. Tonight/tomorrow we are expecting 6-12 inches of snow!

    1. I spoke too soon! We had a mini snow storm last night and there is still snow on the ground today. Ugh!
