Currently writing this while my little one-week old Jack snoozes in a bassinet next to me. I’m going to work on his birth story blog post (they’re always my guilty pleasure to read and I’d love to write it while it’s still pretty fresh in my memory!). This past week has been one of the hardest and most rewarding weeks of my life. I can’t even put it into words really. My only complaint? I already want to slow down time!!!
I have been soaking up all the newborn snuggles, trying to catch sleep where I can, throwing in load after load of laundry, and feeding and changing around the clock… and doing a lot of internet scrolling while I try to get Jack to sleep in the middle of the night. Here’s what has been on my radar:
My current guilty pleasure is Starbucks’ iced brown sugar oatmilk shaken espresso… I have been treating myself to it a little more than I probably (definitely) should. I saw that Half Baked Harvest shared a recipe so we can recreate a similar drink at home… Not sure when I’m going to have time to do this, but I’m sharing this with you and then going to save it to try to make it later down the road.
TWO // Ruth’s Basket Stitch
This is for all of my fellow needlepointers out there! How beautiful and unique is this basket stitch? I actually stitched this little basket tote last year, but think I might do it again just to try out this basket stitch. The guide is free from Grant Point Designs right now! Brilliant.
Okay, how crazy is this story. There is a group of people who have figured out how to double their income. They are working two jobs (without telling anyone else) while we work from home. This sparked a huge conversation over the past week after it made the rounds in various group texts I’m in and I thought you’d find it interesting too.
We have zero need for this because we received so many cutting boards– every shape and size– for our wedding. BUT, I still had to share this because maybe you need a pizza appetizer serving board. I’ve never seen anything like this. I imagine it would be quite the conversation starter at your next dinner party.
This is an older video (about six months old), but it’s a bit of a deep dive into brands utilizing social media (namely: TikTok) in new ways. They introduce the topic with Dunkin’s partnership with TikTok star Charli D’Amelio and then cover all the ways Dunkin’ is tapping into a new generation of potential customers. Really interesting stuff if you’re into marketing/advertising/business (or if you just like scrolling through TikTok’s for you page).
