Some Wednesday things

It’s been a long day. Not a bad day, just a day full of busy and running around and getting stuff done. And so here’s just a few quick things you might want to know about.

1. The Ikat Elephant

ZEN mono french terry

UM Knit and Crochet Kimono Sweater

 

I’m such a fan of The Ikat Elephant. They have sales every Wednesday night on Facebook starting at 8:00 p.m. and Heidi gave me a sneak peek of this week’s offerings because I messaged her to ask if she was getting in any more of the monogrammed terry sweatshirts pictured up above. I bought Caroline and me each one before Christmas and it is my favorite thing to throw on. Lucky for you, she got more in stock and I personally would order a size up from what you normally wear.

But now I feel like I need a few of the other things she’s offering this week, specifically that knit and crochet charcoal kimono sweater which is available in sizes from small to 2XL.

Anyway, just visit The Ikat Elephant on Facebook and you can receive 15% off your total purchase at checkout when you use code Bigmama15 from January 28 until February 2.

2. Ten quotes for writers

My friend and editor, Stephanie, has a blog and yesterday she posted these great quotes about writing. I will tell you that I’ve seen one or two of these appear in emails she’s sent when I’ve emailed to let her know there is no way I can possibly finish whatever chapter I’m working on and all hope is lost.

 

3. Social Media stuff

I realize that not all of you are on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, but lately I’ve received emails asking how to find me on all those various sources and so I thought I would make it easy for you if you’re interested.

I’ve loved Lindsay Letters things for so long now and just thought you might want to see some of the cute things she has that might make great additions to your house for Valentine’s Day. Or any day.

These are some of my favorites.

Big Boo Cast: Episode the one where the dogs are fighting

In the interest of full disclosure, I will tell you that we recorded this last Thursday afternoon. I don't think it makes much difference and can't remember if there's anything that makes it seem like it's five days later. Well, except for the … Read the full article

Mother ocean I’ve heard you call

This weekend was planned to be fairly uneventful. We don't have any sporting events on the calendar yet and so it was just going to be low key. My biggest hope was to get some closets and cabinets cleaned out and figure out what we're going to do … Read the full article

My pillow is my pillow

So I pretty much spent yesterday catching up on all the things I'd neglected to do while I was in Dallas, including such exciting things as making a grocery list and then going to HEB to purchase said groceries. And I did some laundry and attempted … Read the full article
