I got flowers, and I also bought two inexpensive vases that are actually the right size for a smaller-medium sized but tallish bouquet (aka the average $7-10 grocery store mixed flower bouquet!) I've never bought a vase before, the ones I all have are sort of just inherited ones from when I've been sent larger flower arrangements. (We have a dear family friend, like an adoptive "aunt", who has sent us lavish flower arrangments when we got engaged, and when we got pregnant, and when we had DD.) The more modest flowers that I buy or DH brings home don't look as good in these huge outsized vases, and so I am excited now that I have two medium sized vases that they look great in!!!! I ended up buying some beautiful orange roses, and then there were some beautiful irises that weren't too expensive so I splurged on that too!
We also ended up finding some wrought iron furniture we love for our sunporch--we've been sort of looking around/planning to buy something for this room (which currently has no furniture at all except for an old table that we set plants on) since we moved in a year ago. So I ordered that today! yay!!! Even though that isn't really on the "program" for now, I'm taking it loosely and using it to get unstuck in areas where we've procrastinated or haven't really turned our full attention or cheaped out before doing what we'd planned.
I'm not making much progress with doing the floors, but I'll do that over the weekend when DH is home to run herd on DD, so she's not smearing yogurt or peanut butter on the floors in one room while I'm busy mopping in another. lol.
I also am working my way through "Mt. Washmore" of all the items we have that must be washed specially (handwashed, done separately, dirty dog rugs, etc.) that can't just be thrown into the washer with a load of clothes. And the regular clothes that are piling up while I'm occupying the washer with those items.
I am also making significant headway on ton of baby clothes that are strewn all over the basement floor. They were all nicely packed up in a tall moving box from when we moved, but then as I've gone to dig out one thing or another (cloth dipes to lend to a friend, carriers to demonstrate to another friend, preemie outfit for DD's doll!) the clothes and stuff on top have kind of come out of there and ended up migrating all over the basement. I'm sorting them out, picking out things to keep and deciding what to give away or sell.P.S. Hope you all don't mind that I'm including things in here that aren't strictly "by the book", I am using the book a lot though for inspiration and new ways to think about our space.
