Latest Etsy Haul

So I did an order from a few sellers on Etsy! 

I'll start with my personalized wipes case and travel wipes combo made by CrystalCreations108

These Wipe Bits and Breast Pads are from Wee Essentials!

So many layers per pad! They also have PUL, so you are significantly less likely to leak THROUGH. She also makes reusuable pads, and I am especially interested in the after labor pad she offers!

Smells better than I thought when I chose my scent. She offers a LOT of scents, Click Here to see the options!

I did 3 cups of water, and 3 wipe bits. I heated them up, and shook in my mason jar. Airtight seal! Also this mixture hasn't separated since I made it, which my homemade wipe cloths solution always needs shaken before use!

I use this solution with my cloth wipes I bought from Tender Bottoms (previously mentioned here...).

I got this from  My Lil Luv Bug Boutique!

Medium Soap Bits: $7
Breast Pads: $4/pair
Wipes Cases: $21.19 (for both)
Burp Cloth: $9

I have returned from New Orleans. The trip isn't as extravagant as it may seem, it's only 1.5 hours away. I usually go down there to shop and come back. The reason this trip was such a big deal, is because it is the first time that the Husb and I were 100% kid free for 3 days on our own since we met. We didn't have a honeymoon, and between his work schedule and schedule with his kids, in combination with my life, it just never happened. Of course, we aren't loaded so that doesn't help either. Regardless we had a lot of fun. For some reason we didn't take a single picture, probably because we've seen our surroundings so many times, and we were busy otherwise.

We ate out the entire time, and even went South to visit my Aunt&Uncle for the evening. Most importantly, we spent time alone together. It was fantastic.

So far it's been fun! I haven't taken any pictures, and that's partially because we've been here so many time that it's just routine. We did head over to Zuka Baby and get "wee wee" blankets, a cloth diaper, Charlie's Soap, and liners. I'll do a full recap when we get home. I'll also attempt photos today 😉

This is $100 worth of lipstick (4 tubes). All bought at very different times. This is why I should keep a swatch gallery of my inventory on my phone while out shopping. There are essentially 2 shades here, but I bought a double of each. I feel so dumb now. Especially since I have the 2nds in a price that is half of the 1st. This was part of my light pink phase. Luckily one brand, MAC, has a wonderful recycling program. Now on, I'm taking photos of everything I have so I don't make the mistake or waste money again!

Do you ever buy something so similar that it's a blatant waste of money?

Diaper Junction Giveaway!

(to go to the website and enter!)

The Feed Your Stash Friday giveaway this week is for 2 Rumparooz OneSize Pocket Diapers with snaps, in 2 colors of your choosing! That's a $47 value! I personally have been very interested in Rumparooz, but I hesitated and went with some I knew worked before or heard directly about. Although these diapers come with the double leg gussets, which I about died when I saw. I may be needing a few of these...

I have, almost, exclusively bought my diapering necessities from Diaper Junction. It's my preferred site, but I did stray and shop at CottonBabies one time because the DJ was out of the prefolds I had to have right then (baby Clark is due in October, so maybe I was online shopping needy!).

Things like this are what make the Husb wonderful:

Husb introduced me to this wonderfulness while we were still dating. Mind you, Husb can eat an ENTIRE GALLON of chocolate ice cream in one sitting. He knows his chocolates. This bar looks like something boring, and I would never even notice it on a PMS scrounge of the candy isle. Luckily, he found it whenever, and he brought it by. Thank you.
