A few treats for myself

Since we have a little extra money at the moment, I decided to treat myself to a few new things this weekend.

First off, I finally got a pair of Crocs. I’ve been wanting some for well over a year now (maybe two or three, I don’t remember) but just never took the plunge. Jody was buying a new pair of shoes today so I took advantage of the moment and asked if I could get some too (he hates Crocs by the way), and he indulged me. Yay! I got the fuschia pair. I wanted to get a pair for Ava too, but the smallest size seems a little too big for her still. hehe. Just wait. ;)

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Crocs, the company that makes them is based right near here in Boulder, CO, and just about everyone and their sister/brother has at least one pair around here. They are supposed to be uber-comfy. I guess I’ll let ya know. ;) I know a lot of people think they are fugly as can be, but c’est la vie. I like ’em.

The other thing I got for myself (which was VERY much needed) was a new nursing bra. My “good” one that I bought before Ava was born has seen much better days (and it doesn’t fit quite right now that my boobs are not nearly as big as they were right after she was born). So I got a nice, new Bravado bra. Yay again!

It’s not often that I get to splurge on myself so it’s pretty fun when I do. :)

I also picked up a few things for the photography business – two large pots and a wooden crate (to help keep babies/kids in one place), and some faux flowers. I really need to pick up some tulle and ribbon to make some tutus as well. :)

Oh, speaking of the biz, I got my backdrop stand and a free roll of white seamless paper in this week so I did a bit of playing with it with Ava the other day. Here are a few that I took. (click the pic to see it larger.)




Hope you all have a nice weekend. It’s raining here and snow is expected overnight and tomorrow. Blah.
