A lil’ bit of shopping to beat the Spring Break blues

Well, I have to admit, I’m beginning to feel jealous. It’s spring break in our neck of the woods and it seems like EVERYONE we know has headed to the beach. But we live in “Opposite Land” as we call it. That simply means that we do opposite typically of the population at large — think of a little minnow swimming up stream — yeah, that’s us. Figuratively speaking of course. When it’s Saturday and everyone is shopping, we’re home. When everyone is working and at school, we’re out running errands. When people are taking summer break, we are doing school because we have to be inside anyway during the intense Atlanta heat and we take our “summer break” in October when it’s gorgeous out and 75. You get the drift.  Aaaaanyway… I thought I might hunt down a little somethin’-somethin’ to see if that might wet (pun intended) my appetite for the sandy beach and cool surf since I can’t be where my friends are right now.

Am I seeing this right? A pack of four pillows for only $13?! I wish the interior of my RV had blue because these are not only lovely, but a great deal… (click on image for source)

OK, I’m loving this sea shell lumbar pillow… One of my favorite things to this day is to put the shell up to my ear and listen for the “waves”.  This one would be perfect “The Ocean is calling and I must go…” Yes please! (click on image for source)

OK, this little primitive sign for $11 shipped is darlin’ too…

We’ve been wanting to get some new mugs that are lighter weight for the RV… maybe this one from ModCloth might work for $13 ea. (click on image for source) Hmmmm… I love the “adventurer” part, but the anchor seems to want to hold me in place. Wait. Now I’m confused.

Maybe I need a Paris Cafe Cardigan in Noir.. I love how the scallop looks like little waves. This could be a fun option for spring… I can totally see this with a cute gold and creme striped tank underneath and navy linen cropped pants. OK, this is going on the wish list, too. (click on image for source)

Or maybe I should get a new make-up bag to use on the next trip. This one by ModClothe is cute, cute, cute!

And that’s a good note to stop on… “Make Every Day an Adventure”. Well, if I’m going to make tomorrow an adventure, I best get to bed. With five children, every day has something to offer and this Mama needs to get some rest!  Even if life seems ordinary, look for the extraordinary — there’s always something to be thankful for…

Enjoying life with my family is the best adventure of all.

Be blessed!  ~ Erin
