Trigger = pulled

So, it’s been an annoyingly emotional week for me. I won’t get into why. Ok, fine. Twist my arm. I will. It’s just because I’ve had two doctors’s appointments, a board meeting tomorrow, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed at work, Bear started her first week of official preschool and I had to cancel a much-needed haircut because of the aforementioned board meeting. Anyway, I know: suck it up, Kate. So, because there is no therapy like retail therapy, I pulled the trigger on a sideboard. Just kidding. I mean, I did buy a sideboard (Mom, we can totally still go to Milwaukee! In fact, I’d love to!), but there are definitely better therapies than retail. I realized, though, that it’s been driving me so crazy that I spend way too much time every day going back and forth between the options and staring at the one in our dining room when I come home. So, there were a couple of deals that came together and I hit a few buttons and, finally, the big one: “submit order.” Anyone want to guess which one made the cut?

    So sorry about the stressful week. Hope things improve. I am guessing the IKEA sideboard?

    Good guess, but no!

    My first choice?

    Unfortunately no. That’s my favorite one, too, but our dining room table has a very similar wood top so I think it’d be too much of that kind of wood. Ultimately, I’d like to do a white tulip table, so it’d work beautifully then but who knows if that’ll ever happen. So, I pulled the trigger on the white west elm one. I’ve been so in love with white furniture lately. It was 20% off and I had $75 off, too. Plus, I opted for the 12-month 0% financing so that I can pay it off slowly. Basically, I made money, right?!

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
The new @ancorakingst is everything. #ancoracoffee #ancorakingst #madisonwi #ancora #ancoramadison #madisoncoffeeshop #kingstreetbusinesses
