Hey kids! Time for another This & That type of post. Just a random hodge podge of things I’ve come across that have been interesting this past week. In fact, quite a few of these are gift related, so if you’re in a pinch and looking for last minute gift ideas, you may find this post useful.
I never know what to get my step mom. My dad is easy—he’s restoring a 1969 mustang, so for the next few years he’ll be covered because I’ll pick up mustang odds and ends for him. But my step mom—it’s always a struggle.
I recently started reading Parents magazine again. (I thought I should brush up on cool things to do with little ones) And who knew it would help me with the ever challenging gift giving for my mom?! I think it was an article referencing kitchen gadgets, and one of the items was this:
A flip stand recipe keeper from Kitchen Kapers. Talk about perfect! It’s a pretty stand that will easily hold internet print-outs and magazine pages of your favorite recipes. It even has tabs for different categories such as desserts and side dishes, etc. I knew this would be perfect for my mom because she loves to cook for my dad and is always printing out new recipes.
As soon as it arrived I wished I’d gotten one for myself, and I plan to after the holidays. I also want to get myself a Cuisinart Griddler.
I was sold when it mentioned being able to make paninis. Sign. Me. Up. Who else is guilty of doing more shopping for themselves then usual during the holiday season? *raises hand*
Another cool DIY gift idea was one that my friend Erica posted a few days ago—a DIY Medal & Bib holder for the runners in your life.
In other random news……..
I finally scheduled a tour of the hospital for Alfie, Kenzer and I. Even though I’ve been in this hospital many times before, I think I’ll feel better if we take a tour of where we’ll go, what our room will look like, etc. etc.
I also scheduled a refresher breastfeeding class for myself. It’s been 10 years since I’ve nursed, and I want to feel up to date on everything. (I’ve never considered myself this huge “planner”, but perhaps I’m becoming one!?)
Last but certainly not least—I went to my first yoga class in forever last evening at Studio B……….
It was nothing short of AWESOME! And I loved Anne. I can’t wait to share more about it with you on Friday.
