Stitch Fix #5- Box Details, my Favorites & my Review

 My next Stitch Fix arrived in the mail!  The kids always love getting the mail with me, but when it comes to my Stitch Fix box I usually wait to open it until they are napping or in bed so DI can have fun opening it :)
 I love that my stylist explained her choices in this note below... and even recommended pairing one of the items with something from a few fixes ago.
 I loved all three shirts- the fit & the colors!  I loved the back on this first one- with the key hole and sheer mint back:
 Gorgeous details on the front of this one:
 And this had a pretty back as well (I liked the first two shirts better though)
 I loved these shorts! They were a great length and super comfy- just not sure how often I would wear them.
 And the last item- dainty gold earrings.  Really pretty, but I actually have a pair that is similar.
 Like every fix, my choices depend on what fits my budget and what item will get the most use.  I'm glad that all of the pieces fit and I loved each one, but it does make it hard to decide which to keep!! 

Have you all tried StitchFix?  Any favorite pieces you have received in your box? Feel free to leave a link in the comments if you have written a review on your own blog!

Favorite Essential Oils

 My top 3 oils that I've been diffusing lately...
Purification, Joy & Lime
(sometimes I add a little lime or lemon to the joy so it's less floraly)

Baby Bunnies in the Garden!

Last week, I heard some squeaking outside & saw Vali laying in the grass.  I thought she had found a baby bird, but I found a little baby bunny instead.  Thankfully Vali was gentle with it and kept him safe, but until we figured out what to do I put it in a rubbermaid.  Patrick got home shortly after and we found 4 more baby bunnies hopping in the garden!

We snuggled all the bunnies up in the rubbermaid and laid it on its side next to their nest.  The nest was actually hidden under a daybed and quilt in the yard- pretty smart spot!  We hoped the rubbermaid might protect them but keep the bunnies close if their mama came back to them.  They were alert & at least a few weeks old so we weren't sure if she would come back to them.

 The sweet mama has come to visit every evening and morning- actually cuddling them back into their own nest.  Vali guards them during the day :) Pretty sure they are ready to be on their own and leave our yard, but they're welcome back anytime as long as they don't nibble too much lettuce!

Spring Flowers!

Our garden is blooming!  We are prepping and planting our veggies, lettuce & more... here are a few colorful blooms from our yard today.  I'm pretty sure the pink flowers above are the culprit for John Ryman's terrible allergies... Every year the day that tree blooms he is miserable the next few weeks- poor buddy!  Praying it doesn't last long and he can join us in the yard soon :)

Any favorites from your garden?  Or vegetable or herb that is a must-have in my garden?
