Lots of baking happened this week and I loved it. I feel like my Etsy shop goes through phases. I have weeks where all I sell are brownies. Then suddenly, I’m in a granola phase where order after order is granola. It’s nice when things get switched up!
I had an order for pumpkin spice granola and had to smile at the fact that customers are into pumpkin spice in the middle of the summer. I love it, too! I’m not ready for fall, but I’ll take anything pumpkin-flavored all year!
I also fulfilled an order coconut almond granola (one of the first flavors in the shop!), cinnamon raisin granola, and peanut butter granola. If you’re ever looking for the recipe for the granolas I’m always mentioning, you can find them here!
Want to know something funny? I hated my granola during the first trimester of this pregnancy. I would bake orders and literally be so sad that it didn’t even seem the least bit appealing 😂
Now I see a tray of peanut butter granola and want to eat it all. It feels good to be back to normal 😜
I have been having a blast thrifting lately. I’m slowly working on building a wardrobe for our son, but I also find things for my nieces, nephews, other family members, Jimmy, Sadie, etc.
Sadie and I went to a Goodwill Outlet near us and scored big. Everything is sold by weight at an outlet store, but you have to dig through bins. It’s totally worth it to me. We brought home 15 items for $6.06, so each item was a whopping $0.40!
Among the items we got were clothes for baby boy, a couple of dresses for my mom, and a church shirt for Jimmy 😊
We were oohing and ahhing over how tiny the baby clothes were and that led to me telling Sadie about when she was a baby. We talked about how she didn’t sleep unless she was on someone’s chest for like the first two weeks of her life and I was thinking oh no, I almost forgot about that… we are in for it come November 😂 😴
I promise I’ve been doing more than thrifting and baking! Sadie and I went swimming in our neighbor’s pool and it was a fun little girls afternoon 💜
We’ve been to the library, played in the yard, read Sonic the Hedgehog books, visited the car wash, painted our nails, spent a day with my mom, and used Sadie’s Easy Bake Oven!
Do you like her outfit for going to the library? She always cracks me up with what she chooses to wear!
It’s Saturday night as I type up this post and we are ready for bed! Never mind that fact that it’s not even 8:00 pm. Sadie caught a cold and passed it on to Jimmy and I. We are so run-down! Yesterday I took a nap from 4-5 pm and Jimmy has been on the couch for most of the day. Poor guy 🤧
Hopefully we will all get over our summer sniffles before the Fourth of July so we can enjoy the festivities and fireworks!
