Insert applicable title here…


Yeah…I am just that lazy these days.

Clearly.

August was a blur.  And now summer is over.

There is so much, and yet not nearly enough to say.

I’ve been working on me mostly, and gotten back into this really great routine in the morning.  I’ve been getting my butt up at Stupid o’clock and hitting the gym.  Most days I come home and go back to sleep until the Little gets up.  Which is nice, but then I just feel wrecked all day.

I’ve also been slowly transforming my diet back to a clean and mostly organic diet…after realizing I may be having some gluten intolerance issues recently.  I miss pasta.  And bread.  But the effects on the rest of my body have been very noticeable.  My skin is clearer, my hair has been fantastic…

So… I’m going to stay sans pasta and bread for as long as necessary if I look and feel better.

Also…how is my baby going to be TWO in 6 weeks?!?!?!

Everyday is an adventure with this one.  And everyday calls for a costume.  On this particular day she was a fairy.  But the wings have been a common accessory lately.  She always wants to be noticed, and loves being the center of attention…oh so opposite from her mother.  She is still very much Minion obsessed.  But I am so glad it’s not Dora, or something far more annoying like Calliou or Sponge Bob…which by the way…will NEVER be played in my house.  Eva!!  I’d rather only ever watch Despicable Me 2 for the rest of my life than any of those other shows.

We are also taking a big step in our household…

Yeah…gonna maybe put some roots down.  The only thing is that we would be putting roots down in a place I’m not sure I want to be.  I want to get out of MN so badly.  Part of me feels like if we buy a home here…we are stuck here.  But we really need more space, and I think it’s time.  So many of our friends have homes, and don’t rent anymore.  Home ownership is such a huge responsibility, I just hope we are prepared for all of it.  It also means that this CHO’s (Chief Household Officer) job just gets bigger…

There are lots of other things in the works currently…but not ready to share just yet.  I am taking steps to start up something awesome and it’s something that I get asked about A LOT…so I am really excited to start this ball rolling!

And so it begins…


Winter that is.IMG_5763.JPG

We awoke to snow, and I am not happy about it.  I was really hoping for a few more weeks of fall before the tundra set in.  But alas…it’s now winter.

So today we are staying in and enjoying the day just the two of us…me and the destroyer of living rooms.

On Saturday I got my hairs did.  But it didn’t turn out the way it was supposed to, so I will be going back this Saturday to have it fixed.  I am super excited about it and I can’t wait to show you all!

5 Things Friday


5 Things Friday

It’s November.  How the heck did that happen?!  2014 is nearly gone already!  I feel like I barely got used to 2014, and soon it will be 2015.  I have lots of big plans for 2015, and I can’t wait to start them, in fact I may roll some of them out sooner than 2015!

Tonight is date night.  Yaaaaaaaay!  It will be so nice to get away for an overnight, and SLEEP.  The little human has been a nightmare at night recently.  Last night we did kid care for my in-laws so that they could have a date night and we’ve got a HOUSEFUL of kids today!  I am trying out the stairstepper thing today…it’s amusing.

Here’s your five

  1. A toy bomb x 3 has gone off in my house.
  2. Hadley is NOT happy about this day.  There have been lots of tears and it’s only 10 am.
  3. We are doing a No TV November Challenge..no tv shows for 30 days.  We even canceled Netflix & Hulu so we wouldn’t be tempted.
  4. I might have to break the No TV November Challenge today.
  5. The 2 & 3 year old are getting along swimmingly!  It’s hard to be 1.
  6. BONUS THING: New hair day tomorrow!

Do you have big plans for the weekend?

Motivation Monday


elevator-to-success1

There is no Easy Button to achieve success.  You have to climb, and work for it.  And then when you get to the top you can look back on where you came from and feel that surge of accomplishment and pride.

 

How many floors are you climbing today?

Throwback Thursday

This is a hard TBT, but I am sharing this one again as reminder that we all start somewhere!  This was taken about a year ago, I think I was 30 days postpartum.

I am now a year PP and don’t look much different.  I am starting to embrace that “mommy-body” rather than hating it.  And I am working on changing it rather than accepting it.
