Happy Friday! I am currently...
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
* Working on several customs - you guys are keeping me busy! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
* Shipping out the last of my mud cloth bags. I have ONE black and three white left - so if you've been eyeing them, now is the time to get one before they're gone forever! (Plus you get to enjoy 25% off!)
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
*Looking forward to enjoying some time in the sun by the pool this weekend. 🌞
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
* Feeling more easily exhausted as I get closer to the end of this pregnancy (maybe it's the heat?) β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
* Reminding myself that slowing down isn't a bad thing...there's a time and season for everything, and that it's JUST THAT - a season. I'm trying to embrace the time of life I'm in and be grateful for every moment I'm given - even the hard ones - because there's always something to be thankful for.

Card holders basking (BAKING) in the sun - something we desert dwellers do all summer πŸ”₯ The heat is officially here! πŸ˜… 🌞

Who listens to podcasts? πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ I am addicted to them, but always binge listen to new ones I find and then have nothing to listen to again... So I'd love some recommendations! Do you have a current favorite? β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
(For all you creative business owners - I just started listening to Raw Milk by @local_milk and it's SO GOOD. But per usual, I listened to all the current episodes last night while working....) πŸ˜‚

Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful mamas! πŸ’•

As I'm coming up on a maternity leave, I've decided to clean out all of my mud cloth items - so I've marked them all at 25% off! If you've had one of these on your list, then now is the time to get it - I'll be discontinuing all mud cloth from here on out! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

I'm not a minimalist enough to use only a card holder as my wallet, but I do have one in my bag for all the extra membership cards/gift cards/punchcards that I rarely use but still need to tote. It keeps my wallet from becoming super bulky! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Phoenix Flea After Dark on Saturday! I always have such a great time meeting new faces and getting to see familiar ones. Thank you all for shopping small and supporting local!

The desert is so colorful right now - there are blooms everywhere you turn! Shortly after taking this picture, I turn around to see Gideon walking towards me with a whole cactus pad stuck to his sandal πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ He obviously wasn't looking where he was going.... Thankfully it only pricked a little part of his toe! 🌡 #reallife β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

With only two more months to go, this pregnancy is flying by, and I'm anticipating what life will be like with three under five. I've been picturing in my mind how different things will be...on grocery store runs, trips to the park, long car rides, restaurant outings, etc. My husband and I will now be outnumbered πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚! For those of you with littles, what was the hardest transition for you?

Have you entered the giveaway for one of these clutches (along with some other fun items)?? If not - today is the last day to do so! See a couple posts back for details!
