Five on the Fifth // Happy Friday

1. I opened my Etsy store, Our Beautiful Mess Shop, on Monday. It's gotten off to a slow start but I'm still excited about this adventure. Things take time - businesses take time. I do appreciate all the support. There are several ways to support and keep update and see all the new things and of course get coupon codes and deals. One is through OBMS Facebook page and  and OBMS Instagram. You can also follow my boards on OBMS Pinterest page.


2. My little goon is getting so big. I just emptied out his dresser, packing away all his clothes smaller than 12 months. It doesn't seem possible that he's that big already. 9 months still technically fit him but it's getting a bit on the tight side so in general he's more comfortable in 12 months. He's so big.


3. Connor isn't even 6 months yet but I am already ready to be done with bottles. I don't like putting them together, washing them, dealing with them. I'm just ready for Connor to be done with them. Too bad we still have months and months....and months to go.

4. Recently we started giving Stella wet food in the evening along with dry food in the morning. She's a bit on the overweight side and she's starting to get to the age where diabetes is a concern, so they recommended wet food all the time (higher in protein and less carbs) but that's expensive. So the vet told us that just giving her less dry and supplementing with wet food - which means we buy less - would help too. So we started doing that. I have no clue if it is helping her weight or not but I do know that she's gotten more annoying every evening. She will whine until one of us feeds her. Then she will whine to the other one like she hasn't been fed. We have learned that we have to ask the other if she was fed so we don't double feed her.


5. So we have a Chevy Equinox and we learned that it's not so easy to change out the headlight a couple years ago when it went out. It went out and we went out to get a new one but the people told us that Equinox's are hard because you have to take the front off. So we took it to a place to do it for us which resulted in us waiting for a long time in order for them to figure it out. Well just recently we had a headlight go out again. Rob decided that he didn't want to pay someone else a crazy amount of money to read the manual and do it, so he got the manual and a YouTube video. And as it turned out, it wasn't as hard as we were originally told. It definitely isn't as easy as our other car but it's not impossible for us to do ourselves (and a heck of a lot cheaper!)

Comment below: What is something random that has happened to you in the last month? 


Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!
