Monkey 1st Birthday

This post is very late but as my multitasking mind takes over I am now on my 3rd different thing that I'm doing on the computer besides what I sat down to do.

When planning his birthday party and theme I went with a general monkey theme.  We don't watch a lot of TV and really it's hard to tell what a 1 year old in really 'into'.  My cousin Beth with Beth Kruse Custom Creations designed my party printables.  I normally do this kind of thing on my own but there were just too many things going on in our lives at the time for me to add 1 more thing to my plate.  She has fabulous parties so I knew I was outsourcing to someone great!

It's been over a year since my last 'Fix' and I decided to give it another try.  Ever since JP was born I haven't really bought many clothes for myself.  Some of my old clothes still fit and some don't but a big problem is that I have completely different needs.  Now that I am an at home mommy all of my cute business casual outfits don't get much use (at all!!) and it turns out I didn't have much for everyday casual.

I really don't enjoy shopping.  I think it is partially because I have a hard time finding things that will fit right, I am not a large person but on the taller side and typically smaller sizes just aren't long enough.  I'll take 10 things into a fitting room and maybe 1 will fit right.  It's frustrating.

I really love shopping online because it give me time to do things I want to do instead of need to do.  I've eluded in previous posts about the products we use in our home and I get them from an online wellness .com store…
