It has been quite some time since I participated in a good ole ‘fesh sesh over here. I swear life just always feels crazy and like it needs to slow down! I am linking up with Danielle to share what has been going on in this head over here!
I am so sick of my kiddos getting sick. Dealing with one kiddo can be stressful enough, but I am kind of the designated ‘stay home’ parent when sickness happens, and we have been so slammed this year I swear I am blowing through all of my vacation days. We are battling what seems like influenza with Lincoln this week, and I am just feeling so out of it.
My Tuesday nights become a major source of depression on the weeks when This Is Us is not on. Like, what am I supposed to do with that hour of my night now???
I am ready for spring. Not really a big surprise, but after our major teaser with warm weather a week or two ago, I am SO ready. It is supposed to warm up again this weekend, and I cannot wait.
I despise making my toddler brush his teeth. So it doesn’t happen nearly often enough. I would probably mind it less if he was excited to do it, but half of the time it is such a battle, I tell myself he didn’t eat too much sugar, decide it isn’t worth it, and just put him to bed with dirty teeth. I know, ick.
I also despise bath time. It really doesn’t end up being that much of a process, but our weeknights are so busy with getting home, getting dinner on the table, sticking to bedtimes, that throwing baths in there just makes me cranky a lot of the time. We usually do baths every other day, but on weeks where we are extra worn down, sometimes that gets stretched out an extra day..
I confess that I realize this post is making me sound like a neglectful mother. My kids don’t seem to mind, so I suppose that’s what matters most 😉
I am so obsessed with everything PINEAPPLE lately. There are so many cute items out there, whether it is for the home or apparel, and I am 100% onboard with this trend.
I am finally getting around to decorating our fireplace mantel, slowly but surely. We got a new TV and mounted it on the wall, and I have a plan, so I think it will get there and I cannot wait for it to look complete. In the meantime, I am really liking the few pieces I have added so far.
I was going to do reds in our living room, but because all of our wood trim and cabinets are such a dark oak, I decided to brighten up the space and am instead going the route of whites, creams, and little pops of color in blue and green.
I felt so proud of myself yesterday for only drinking black coffee, as I am giving up buying any coffee from places like Starbucks or Caribou for Lent. It is really sad that I am as proud as I am.
I have barely enough thought about planning Lincoln’s first birthday party, and I am quickly realizing it is only two months away, so I really need to get moving on some of the pieces!
I was out of the office the first half of the week at a training, but I am still SO glad we are coming up on the weekend! Friday is my favorite day of the week!
