Thanksgiving and a Black Friday Find

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Thanksgiving day was a little crazy for us, with 15 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs crammed into my sister-in-law's house! But it was nice to spend time with family, and with everybody pitching in, we had massive amount of yummy food! The next morning, we were too tired to get up early for the Black Friday doorbusters, but we did go shopping later in the day.

And now, we get to the reason why I wanted to post! We didn't shop too much this year, but I got this ADORABLE turtle from a small toystore we happened to find. I've actually wanted it for years, but I thought it was a little too expensive. So, when I found this at the store and realized that they were doing a store-wide 20% off sale, I jumped on it!

It's made by a company named Cloud B and is called Twilight Turtle. It lights up and projects real constalations on your ceiling! And you can change the color of the light from green to blue and amber at the push of a button, too. Now, after bath, my son will just sit there quietly as I dress him in pajamas. He loves switching the colors and thinks it's really funny when stars are projected on his belly.

It truly is magical! I highly recommend it for anyone with small kids!!


  1. You got Twilight Turtle!!! I've wanted one ever since I was pregnant with Katy, but I too thought they were too expensive. Maybe they've come down on price now. Katy may be getting another Christmas present!

  2. You should totally get one for Katy! We LOVE it!! It's so mesmerizing.

  3. I don't even have kids and I want one!
