My boyfriend Martin has Amazon Prime and we needed a few things. I made a little order of essentials and one of them was a fail. We will get to that in a second, though. I am really enjoying the family that I have now. I am back in touch with my family and now, I have Martin’s too. On top of it all, our little apartment is our own personal family and I just love being a part of the lives that I am touching now. There is just so much happiness inside of me that I don’t know how to process it all at times. I just know that this life is worth everything that I am putting into it and I’m so happy that I took that leap. I don’t want to think about where I would be without it.
But enough of that, let’s get into the good stuffs!
The Regalo baby gate is the perfect height. It is about a foot taller than Dean. The problem? It is too short for our door way and another 4 inch extension is sold out. I will be calling to see when they will be getting new ones to order. I am hoping that I can get one soon! Dean is really rambunctious and I wanted to keep him out of the kitchen for safety purposes while I am distracted working from home.
Dean cracked the waterproofing on the mattress by jumping up and down on it. I bought this one that also has some extra padding on it to make his bed more comfortable. Not sure if he notices, but I know it is good quality by touching it.
Pots and pans were something that we were missing desperately. I purchased a cheap set to get us through for the time being. I basically want my whole kitchen to be Pioneer Woman stuff. I love love love that brand from Walmart, but it is a bit pricey. But we can actually cook things now, an amazing thing. lol
You also need knives to cook, among other things. This was just a basic but necessary Amazon haul. Just something small to get our home off to a great start. I am so excited! Next week, I will be starting to buy hanging veggie and fruit plants for my patio. I’ll be showing that in May. I might plant some flowers as well. We shall see. I really want to try my hand at gardening. I think that I would do well at that, plus I want to grow my own spices too. I really want my own mint and aloe plant. I think those are easiest to keep alive. I need more hobbies. Blogging is my only hobby right now. I am adding cooking, baking, and gardening. This way, I will never feel bored and always have something to do. I am not very creative, so these are hobbies that I can get behind.
Does anyone else garden and have any advice? I will be doing a potted hanging garden and on the kitchen sill for the most part. Maybe some hearty flowers to plant outside.
