variegated rubber tree plantleni's cookiesIt was a quick trip to the nursery because Ben had to pick up nematodes for the garden, and of course, I left with another house plant. This time it’s a variegated rubber plant; the leaves had me at hello.

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships this week and how some evolve and change. I’ve had my share of dumb and not so dumb fights with friends. I think there’s something special about the friendships you can be honest with, and even at times, fight and still end up friends after. Good friends are treasures, so treat them as such.

Ben’s mom is in town and we are all loving it! We are totally being spoiled by her presence. Oh Texas, why do you have to be so far?!ย 

I’m a gift card hoarder. When someone gives me a gift card, I save it for as long as possible and make sure whatever I spend it on is worth it. With that, I’ve had this Madewell gift card for a couple years now, and lately I’ve been debating if I should spend it on this embroidered denim dress. Just not sure. I’m always iffy on buying a new dress because I sew, but this embroidery might warrant it being bought. I just showed Ben though and he was all, “It looks like one you just sewed.” So it looks like I’ll wait until a shoe I love comes around.

I can’t wait until our espalier trees look like this.

Excited to be #3 Amazon hot releases for family activity!

School is almost over. I know homeschooling is different, but still, I’m excited for summer!

I love following Erin Loechner’s instagram. Makes me excited for our Singapore trip!

    I knew it was that dress when you described it! I bought it and really do love it, but it is so expensive. It was a little short, so I needed the next size and it’s not available. It is really well made and has a nice lining, but then I felt like it might be too hot. Plus it’s dark and I’m trying to lighten up my warm weather wardrobe- not sure I want to risk white though. SOโ€ฆI’m just sayin’โ€ฆ I’m with you on that one! ๐Ÿ™‚ I returned it, but I’m still thinking about it- even though I know I can make it. Uggh! ๐Ÿ™‚
