I have to admit since Mary came, I have been doing some shopping. There were some last minute things I wanted that I didn't get to buy before she came.
First, I wanted a Mother necklace. I looked all over for one and couldn't find one that I loved. Then a fellow mom recommended the Vintage Pearl to me. I fell in love with every necklace they had. It took me quite awhile to pick one but I finally did and it came this past weekend.
Simple and perfect for me!
The next thing I looked for were blocks for Mary's room. I searched Etsy and found a great seller that was so easy to work with. Her name is Mandi and her Etsy store is Birds and Blossoms. Here are the blocks that she custom made for Mary.
They could not match her room any better! She did an amazing job and I already have her making some more for another mom friend.
I also joined Shutterfly and got 50 prints for free! What new mom doesn't want 50 pictures for free! I was able to order photos for her brag book and start her photo album. I also found out from a fellow mom about a $20 off coupon and I used that to create Thank you notes and address labels for Mary. I think I ended up saving close to $35 on everything. Here are the Thank you notes and the address labels have the same little bird on them.
I think I am done shopping for a little bit. I need to start writing on those pretty Thank you notes. We have gotten so many fun gifts for Mary. Our friends and family are so thoughtful and generous!
